I couldnt organize but I would love to see a swap for those of us who will be by ourselves on christmas/ hanukah, etc. Wether you are single and living away from family, at school, or have a deployed spouse.....anyone who will be by themselves on the holidays would be welcome, and it would be a good way to make new friends. What do you all think?

Bum, this is exactly what I need this year too.  With what I am committed to right now, I just don't think I can swing this.  I'll see when the sign ups get started.  Though I don't have family to spend time with this holiday (I won't get into it Tongue), I still have much crafting for family and upcoming swaps.  Perhaps if it is kept to a point system or small medium requirements, I could maybe do it.  I will wait and see.  I definitely can't think about organizing.

I do hope that for you and anyone else that this gets off the ground.  I don't know if I'll be in the same position next year of being alone (I really hope not Roll Eyes Undecided).

Wow, this is a great idea! I'm a single mom with a lil one living far from family. I get depressed everytime i go home and come back so i decided not to go back for holidays. Smiley Although i have 1 swap i am working on now and bc i'm a newbie, i can't do more than that Sad We'll see how the dates go and if anyone wants to organize this swap

hmm....I should be done with my other swaps and christmas crafting by then.  *crosses fingers*  I would think that sign ups should be mid to late November with send outs around December 15th or so (I don't have a calendar handy) so we hopefully all receive before Christmas.  I am still thinking I probably won't be able to organize.  It depends on if the two of the ones I am organizing are completely done (they better be Roll Eyes Wink) and how many sign up for the third one I am organizing right now.  The other two should be done in the next week or two.  So I guess I am a MAYBE on organizing, though I would really prefer someone else organize.

With that time frame, it should definitely be small to medium size requirement I think.  Hopefully more than just the three of us will stop by interested in this. Smiley

tvelez, I am in the four element swap too.  Hopefully it will fill up sooner than later so you can craft sooner and send sooner and get feedback sooner so you have a chance to participate.  I think it will be challenging, but you never know.  I am really looking forward to partners. Cheesy

This sounds like a great idea...I'm abroad this Christmas (and last Christmas!) so it'll be a very small celebration this year.

Would the swapped things be holiday-themed too? Or the theme is the general 'whatever your swap partner would like'?

Or is too soon to ask this?  Grin

 I can Organize HOWEVER send sendouts would have to be in the first week of DEC to guarantee overseas swappers have there package for Christmas morning...

 I would also say that we should wrap the goodies...And everyone open on Christmas morning OR Hanukkah ( oh 8 wonderful nights)


I would thing gifts from Wists I would rather not have holiday stuff...What do you all think??
 
  1 med 3 smalls...

I think this could be super fun....

Send outs first week of December would be challenging for me, though I totally understand the logic.  Could still be done.  Definitely no more than one medium and three smalls. 

I totally love the idea of wrapping them and then the partner open it either Christmas or hanukkah.  I prefer wist based items, but you could have a question in the questionnaire like this:

Would prefer wist/stalking based items, holiday related items, or a combination?
