Details of swap:

Aussie only xmas card & small gift swap!

Similar to last year's  and the year before aussie christmas card & small gift swap.

Depending on size of signups everyone will send to as many people as they choose eg 5 or 10 ok. If you want to send to just 2 thats ok too just let me know before end of sign ups!

You must send and recieve the same number of cards with gift! eg Send 6 = recieve 6  or send 2 = recieve 2. simple huh!


Send something handmade by YOU. Crafting should be no more than 1 hour,  so quick easy swap!.

I anticipate lots of pre crafting and a pic sample in thread before sign ups close so partners can be requested.
If you wish to pre craft all your items, still consider your partners preferences in colour, style where possible when sending.


Reply to this thread if interested and pm organizer your list of at least 3 items you wish to offer  for people to choose what you could send to them, you can add more later if you want, before final partner requests.

Pm organizer (cyndiq) details

When your crafting is complete, pm organizer, so you can be identified green = ready to send!

Participants crafster name and list of things they are offering will be listed  on this front page, next post and link to picture sample in thread. (before partners picked by nov 23 rd)

DO NOT SEND UNTIL partners completed crafting and not until december 13th so items are recieved closer to xmas to make it more fun.  Cheesy

Everyone  needs to pm organizer when you recieve. And place a picture of gift and card in gallery (to be set up) and send a recieved & thankyou pm to sender.

If you want to participate, information to send to organizer:

I've just signed up! Watch this space for my gift list and pics!

Here I go with items/sample pics:

1) handmade coptic bound journal. Assorted colours available (I have an obsessively large collection of papers) I will make these to suit your preferences.

Sample pic:


2) Envelope mini journals: these journals use envelopes to make the pages so they have plenty of handy pockets. They have a beaded binding and ribbon ties. There are three designs currently available (pics to come) or I can make to order.

Sample pic:


Other designs available:


3) Handmade polymer clay beads. Either as a piece of jewelry or lose beads for your own crafting. These will be made to your order. Assorted sizes available.


The ones on the left are the smallest size I can make and the turquoise one is the largest. Shown with a $1 coin for scale.

4) Stitched canvas and felt ornaments. The ones pictures heare are HP themed but I can make other styles. I think some Kitch 50's designs could be cute, but I will custom make these to your preferences.



5) Assorted jewelry. I'm thinking Tree pendants or assorted earings (Christmas available, pics to come) but I'm flexible, let me know your preferences



Christmas earrings:

The trees (top right) come in red and white versions as do the reindeer (bottom left)

I also make ATC's and would love to include these in te package, if you are interested.
