Hello! I participated in PJ's first journal round robin, and am wanting to try my own. I have a 7-1/2 x 9-3/4" composition book, that I would like to pass around among any who would be interested. Just put your address, a short note, decorate, paint, draw, embellish, whatever you want to do. You can even glue a few pages together to make them more sturdy if you want, just don't make it where it won't close or can't be mailed on it's journey, and please respect other's work!!

Anything goes with it, and as soon as people start signing up, I will send out to the first on the list, then they will send to next one, and so on. Each person can do up to a two page spread if they wish. I will see how many sign up and then let you know if I am going to copy the journal for all to have a copy...if nothing else, I will send mail art to every person who participates. looking forward to sharing this experience with you!
