Details of swap:

The focus of this swap is to make holiday-themed clothing items for Blythe. 

Send a minimum of 3 handmade/crafted items per swap, revolving around the holidays - so anything from Christmas sweaters to hats to gloves to scarves, etc (these are just examples, so feel free to think of your own!).  They should all be made by you for your swap partner.  Holidays included are:  Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year, Kwanzaa, etc (basically anything falling between now and New Year is fair game).  You may send things not crafted by you, but that should be on top of the 3 handmade items - we want to focus on the spirit of crafting here ;-)

PM Nxtdrgrrl and your partner with delivery confirmation number when you send
PM Nxtdrgrrl when you receive
Post photos of what you receive in the gallery (that's the fun part - seeing what everyone came up with!)

It would be great to post photos of your Blythes to be crafted for with their names in this thread. You don't have to wait to know who your partner is to do this but please DO NOT do this until you have sent me your questionnaire and I have PMed you back with the OK to post.

These links are provided to show you what has been done in past Blythe-related swaps, but please note this swap is not affiliated with the We Love Our Blythes/Pullips swaps.

I know a big problem is that this last round blythe owners got matched up with pullip owners and that never should have happened.  Which is why the round before when I organized, blythe only got matched with blythe and pullip with pullip.  But when I ran that round, there was only one other pullip owner that and 2 people can't do a swap.  Plus I'm having surgery in a couple weeks, so I can't organize. Sad 

Has anyone but me and my partner even sent yet for the last round?

This has nothing to do with the We Love Our Blythes/Pullips swap - this is a specific holiday-themed swap for Blythe owners.  I referenced the previous swaps so those participating in this swap could see what has been done in past swaps.  I'm more than happy to remove those links if it's causing any confusion.

No, I don't think it's causing any confusion.  I knew this was a different swap.  I was just wondering about the other swap because I know that many of the people are the same. 

It's just a shame the pullip people got kicked out.  I knew that blythe people didn't like pullip people though, so it shouldn't have surprised me...

oh dear that isn't the case!
this is just a little holiday low key blythe swap - pullips are super cool - but *for me* they are harder to craft for b/c i don't have one and have never seen one for real. i love the look of pullips and how posable they are - there will be plenty more swaps for all of us  Cheesy
