I would be interested!  I don't know if I want to take this one though since i am doing the 12 Days of Christmas Mini swap....
Would anyone be interested in just swapping ornaments with no medium item?

well depending on what types of crafts that you do, a medium item doesn't really have to be too involved.

Well, I really want to do this one, but I have to clear out some other swaps first. 

I have so many neat ideas for ornaments this year.  I've been collecting ideas all year, just to do this swap.

I'll be keeping an eye on this one and see where I'm at swapwise before the signup period is over.  I Loooooove ornaments, I think I have like a zillion of them by now.
