Time for Ornament Swap!! - CLOSED!!

Hey lovely friends!!
Look what time it is!!
via weheartit

It is that time again for the ornament swap. I totally love handmade ornaments and love decorating my Christmas tree with lovely things my friends have made!

Last year was an awesome success!

SOOOO here are the details... Make an handmade ornament for each participant of the swap, you can personalize, you can sew, you can make it out of paper, you can do whatever you would like!

Here are the fine details:

*Leave me a comment on this post with your e-mail address and if you are interested or e-mail me at

*I will close sign-ups on October 10th, 11:59 CST

*I will post the list of the participates on Friday Oct. 15th and will send an e-mail to all the participants with my mailing address.

*You will make 1 ornament for each participant in the swap, so if there are 15 participants, you will make 15 of one ornaments (you will get one back also).

*If there are more than 20 participants, I will break up the groups. If this does happen, I will find out if you want to participate in both groups.

*Please also include at least $8 for shipping and handling to get the packages back to you. A little more if you live outside of the US.

*All countries are open to partcipate. But please remember the deadline to receive the packages.

*Swap items will need to be sent to me by November 20th and I will get packages sent back out on December 4th. To unsure delivery before Christmas, if it is not received by that time I will have to take you out of the swap (unless there has been communication between us before that date that they will be late).

*You will need to send me an e-mail on when you have shipped the package. That way, if I don't receive it within 2 weeks...then we have an issue. Which did happen last year. I prefer you send with a tracking number. That way, you didn't put all this effort in your package for it to get lost.

If you would like to include a small present also for each participant you totally can, but make sure to wrap it!

I am super excited to host this swap again this year and hope to bring out the Holiday Spirit between my wonderful friends that I truly cherish!

If you have any questions, you can e-mail me or leave a comment!

Holiday Season has arrived!! What's better than making gifts for our friends!

Please spread the word on your blog and twitter!! I will host special giveaways through the swapping time only for participants. This could be for a fun stocking or little gifts from my favorite online shops.
