    [​IMG] [​IMG] The FINAL list is up on post #34 page #4 [​IMG] [​IMG]





    The homemade Christmas ornament thread was so successful last year I thought I'd start it up again.

    This year I'll do three swaps for July/August, September/October and November/December but there will be a separate thread for each swap.

    Sign up is all month long during the first month and all ornaments should be mailed out before the end of the second month.

    You can sign up to send out 1, 2 or even 3 or more ornaments, just let me know how many you will do so I can list your name that many times.

    As you sign up your name will be shown on the BEGINNING LIST in post #1. At the end of the sign up month the names will be mixed up and the FINAL LIST will be posted so you'll know who to send yours to at that time. Please mail your ornaments out by the end of the second month. When your ornament is ready to be mailed, PM the person BELOW you on the FINAL list to get their name and address.

    We LOVE pictures, so please post a picture here of the ornament(s) you received.

    Last year I received such a great variety of ornaments it was exciting every time a package arrived in the mail! It was so much fun to see the different talents that are out there and to get 1, 2 or 3 ornaments every other month. It was a ball! So if you haven't participated before please join us now and if you did participate in the past welcome back again and let's get crafting! (I know it's only the end of June but Christmas will be here before you know it [​IMG])

    This sounds like my kind of party!!!!

    Can the ornaments be made out of anything. And can one potentially be a tree topper???

    If small,do you include 2-3, etc
    Thanks, Ruth

    Quote:No rules other than they be homemade. Yes most people that
    make small/tiny sized will send 2-3 to each person as one swap
    item.
