Unfortunately I have to drop out - we just had layoffs & I got someone else’s duties dumped on me, in the middle of a very busy work season already. Foo! I mean, yay I have a job, but boo doing the work of two now!
Oh too bad. Sorry about the hassle your facing. maybe next time!
I will be watching the swap, and practicing for next round!
You can always use a journal for yourself!
So tempted by this but, with only just getting some mojo back I know that pushing comfort zones and having time limits, along with returning to college/school, for me & boys, is not a good idea.
If I can cope/get enthusiasm/find time around college stuff, I’ll make one for me.
I will send out partner info this afternoon - busy last week of school.
And vacation/staycation begins in 5, 4, 3, 2, …
Partner info sent - have fun!
Partners yay! Time to spread papers all over the craft room!
Yesss! It’s going to be such fun making a journal for @Nicole!
Yay! I have been waiting for a theme to work on:grinning: it’s Crafting Time!
I was a bit nervous to join this swap, but I’ll be eagerly stalking the gallery and perhaps keeping an eye out for Round 2
SAME SAME SAME! Your questionnaire has me so excited!
Next time for sure, please join. We are beginners and intermediates and none of us is expecting perfection - we just like handmade stuff!
I have so many ideas! What am I to do. And so much ephemera to consider. Digging through stuff now.
I love this part of the crafting process. Selecting and Collecting the crafting stuff! Yay!!!
Me, too. I am planning to go the creative reuse joint tomorrow, because, you know, there might be something there that I don’t have yet!
I haven’t been to our creative reuse place in ages. But I think I should really clean my craft room before I go there again.
I pulled out some art journals I had made or received. Starting to get some more solid ideas. And some where I have a fabric journal I have never bound.
Somehow I didn’t spot your posting, but I love seeing all your books! The buckle is a nice closure idea.
I have a journal made for the swap, and it is structurally sound, but I’m thoroughly dissatisfied with how it looks so far. I guess that is why I have gesso…
Idea: a beer journal. Bottle opener in the spine. Flattened bottle caps get added to heavy-weight pages, along with paper coasters and other flotsam from drinking. Ok, back to sleep now.
