How Circle Journal Work!

Post by Crafty Cat on Thu Aug 21, 2008 9:25 pm

I have had a PM inquiring how the Circle Journal work with regards to posting out to the same person. This is the best way I can explain it for those of you that haven't done one and are not sure how it works, hope that this will explain it easier for you.

For example ... think of the party game "pass the parcel" except instead of having one parcel for 9 people there are 9 ladies with a parcel in their hand each (which are us), the parcel is our own journal .... then each parcel (journal) gets passed to the person next to them (we are standing in a circle, hence circle journal and we always pass to the same person) and so forth until everyone has held all of the 9 parcels individually and this carries on until everyone is back holding their own parcels (journals) again.

Hope that makes sense!

Ive never done one of these before. So I dont know if this is a silly question or not. But why is there a need to wait to post the journal off to the next person? Wouldnt it be quicker if you posted it as soon as you finish.

If you post off without waiting, someone might have three journals at their place and other people have none - it gets way too complicated - they journals get mixed up and people forget which one they should be posting on next...

It is much easier and smoother to keep to a roster and send when everyone sends it.

That ensures that
a) it is easy for Shez to keep track of which journal is where
b) there is no one without a journal at any given time
3) There is no one with a build up of three or four journals (it does happen, beleive me!)

Deb - a lot of people just buy the A5 size spiral bound visual Diaried (the ones with the black plastic cover) - they work just fine!

For this one, I used a Kaiser cover and just made my pages from card.

Ok Amanda, say the list looks like this:

Deb
Amanda
Skye


Deb will send her journal to Amanda, Amanda will send her journal to Skye, Skye will send her journal to Deb

Then next round, Deb will send Skyes journal to Amanda, Amanda will send Debs Journal to Skye, Skye Will send Manadas Journal to Deb... it keeps going around that way until you get it back.

Does that help?

no problem vic - I have seen so many of these journals go wrong.

There is one at SM at the moment that 2 ladies have just got really frusteated and pulled out because tha last journal they saw was back in January - they sent it on and never received the next one!

And one lady has 3 journals but has disappeared from the foum and gine missing! Shocked

This is why Shezzy and I have been discussing it behind your backs! Wink
Trying to iron out the creases!

Amanda, you do only send to the same person everytime, but each round you are sending a different journal...

So the first round, you will send your journal to elle.
Then you will receive Debs Journal.
Then you will send Debs journal to Elle
Then you will receive a new journal
Then you will send that journal to Elle...

you will always send to Elle, but it will be a different journal every time!

It should end up that everyone has had your journal so it does a full circle around every person on the list...... then ends back in your hands.

thats good to know you are busy behind our backs to make sure everything runs smoothly.

I've seen a couple of cj's that were going around the SM forum, a couple of my cousins in Tumut had one earlier in the year. I don't know if they are still in the forums (kata and tara) they are about to have babies in a month or something.

Is it the way I'm explaining it?

Haha! When I explained it to Shez, she got it straight away!!!

I thought I was onto a good thing!

It really is easy guys... it just goes around in a circle until it gets back to you!!!! Hence the name 'CIRCLE' journal!

I am just intelectually superior! albino

well amanda I was just reading through the pm from cat and was confusing my self again.

I'll start with you the first cj you will have is debs when you finish that you send it to elle she will do her page in debs after that then she sends it to kirsten. etc etc till we all have done a page in everyone's cj.

Hope I haven't confused you further or anyone else, in how I explained it.

Ok, I start with sending you my Album first & then every album that I receive sent onto me by Kylie, I do my work in them & then I send it into you when Shez gives the green light to mail out! So each new album I send to you belongs to another lady & so on! How does that sound? sunny

Sigh.
Hows this sound girls... do it the way Shez tells you to do it!

That sounds a tad bitchy I know - I don't mean it to, but Shez and I have discussed it and Shez is running it the smoothest possible way.

You just have to trust in that.
Send it to whoever Shez tell you to send it to and it will all be good!
