    I know things are starting to get busy with the holidays lurking right around the corner, but if anyone is interested in doing one more swap before Christmas sign up here [​IMG]

    You can sign up to send out 1 or 2 ornaments, just let me know how many you will do.

    Sign up for the swap ends November 30 and the order of names will be finalized from the Beginning List to the Final List on the morning of December 1st so you'll know who to send yours to at that time .

    ETA: Send to the person BELOW you on the list [​IMG]

    Please mail your ornaments out by December 15th so everyone will get theirs in time for Christmas.

    eta: We LOVE pictures, so if you're able to please post a picture of the ornament you received.

    I've not participated in these yet, what are the stipulations? Does the ornament have to be a specific type? Hand-made? Is there a minimum $ value? Thanks [​IMG]

    ETA: Is anyone doing a Christmas gift exchange? [​IMG]

    Yes, they are all homemade ornaments. I'm sure the costs vary but it's basically all about the fun of making/sharing homemade ornaments. There are no stipulations other than they be homemade. Once the deadline for sign up is over, I mix up the beginning list to become the final list. You PM the person(s) below your name for their name/address(s) once you are ready to mail out your ornament (no posting name/addresses publicly). It's always fun for everyone to post pictures of what they received too.

    Check out these links to see what we've done in the past [​IMG]

    That's what I was afraid of, I have absolutely no talent unless someone wants a string of popcorn [​IMG]

    I'll think about starting a gift exchange, those types of things are a lot of work!

    Sign me up for 2, I have been busy all day making ornaments. They are so cute, I am up to 3 dozen made so far! Almost sounds like a batch of cookies, LOL
