As I don't plan to emigrate to the other side of the pond any time soon, I won't be able to join in with this swap unfortunately 😢It looks like the journals are going to look beautiful. I've made a couple of journals using notebooks but I've not made one from scratch before. However, you have given us a good idea of how to put one together, and how to titivation the pages so, even though I don't have you fantastic vintage stash , I think I'll have a go at making my own journal. I do have some photos of a few of frocks used on Downton that I took at two different exhibitions so I need to dig them out to include in my journal.
Thanks for the inspiration Karla💜

Louis, the only problem with overseas swappers, is that the postage has really gone up for international shipping, and this book will be hitting close to 2lbs, once it is filled and packaged. Ive checked and the postage for flat rate padded envelopes to GB is $32.95. Id love to have you in the swap and if you are willing to pay that for the package, wed be thrilled to have you.

Unfortunately it's beyond my price range. I know what you mean about the postage too, it's increased a lot for postage to the US in the last couple of years unless. One day I will be in one of your swaps :-)
I'm going to start on my from-scratch journal now.

It is too bad that the postal rates have become so high that it is almost impossible to reach out and share across the globe the way we used to be able to. That was so exciting in blogging days, I loved getting and sending packages around the world.

Another fun swap, Karla! I know you will soon be up to your elbows in journal pages! Oh, how I'll miss Downton Abbey - sigh!


Count me in! Email coming! Can't wait!

Do we do all six papers the same or can each page be different? Love this idea!

Karla Nathan

Either way that youd like, Diane. Six different people get them, so it doesnt matter if they are alike or not.
