Default Circle Journal?

Does anybody know the details on how to start one of these? I saw one posted on another site and thought it was neat.
Has anyone here ever done one?
From what I understand you pass it(or mail) around to a group of people and they each add to it. Who Keeps it and what is the journal about?

I'm just finishing a CJ on another board. This is the way ours was set up:

We have 10 members. Each member on the list mails to the person next on the list, so you are always mailing to the same person. Each journal is about whatever it's owner wanted it to be about (mine was favorite quotes). We set a size limit (for mailing purposes), agreed on mailing dates (1st and 15th of every month) and had a month to create our journals. We decorated the books, did an intro page describing what we wanted in our CJ, created a sign-in page, and did a set of pages ourselves.

We made sure to check in each time we got a journal. We all agreed to post the priority tracking numbers so the CJs could be tracked. That has been a good way to keep everyone accountable.

HTH!

ETA: the link below to my jasnmis gallery has pics of my CJ.

Awesome work StampinMelis! Great gallery!! TFS!

As for the CJ, they do sound so fun, but I'm swamped right now with a bunch of other projects going!

I am in the process of creating one for my husband's grandmother. Her husband recently passed so we are passing the book around the various family and friends asking them to add a favorite story or event regarding grandpa. I know if will be one of Grandma's prized possessions!!

Thank you!

It was a ton of fun! Just make sure that everyone joining has a similar level of committment. We've had 3 people drop out, and that's frustrating to everyone involved.
