Details of swap:

Everyone loves the holiday season, and what better way that to share it with another person. This swap will be a partnered swap (meaning you send to the same person you receive from and there is only one). You will be making ornaments to fit the decor, theme or celebration that your partner enjoys (meaning, you may be crafting something you wouldn't normally craft for yourself).

the requirements will be 6 smalls or 3 mediums, but you WILL BE ABLE TO NEGOTIATE with your partner

by 6 smalls i mean 6 simple but beautiful ornaments that didn't necessarily cost alot -or- take a lot of time, but are still very attractive and heartfelt (this means that taking a glass ball and stuffing it with fake snow is not a small, if you want to include a style that is very very simple to accomplish but fits your partners tastes make it an extra -or- do 2 and they will count as one small)

3 mediums will be things that take you a generous amount of your time (up to you, for me, something that takes 6 hours is a medium, but I craft full time so that's the mid range of time it takes me) or it can be easy to put together but relatively expensive to create (anything over 4-5 dollars per ornament is appropriate I think)

Once you have talked to your partner and discussed the guidelines and your expectations, YOU MUST let me know, because I need to not that in my file

--IF YOU WANT TO DO LESS THAN THE AMOUNT REQUIRED THERE WILL BE A SPECIAL GROUP CALLED *LITE* AND THEY WILL BE DOING 3 SMALLS, *NO* NEGOTIATION--

I really look forward to having you all in this swap!

Filling mine out now! I think I am going to have to go for the "lite" group, as I just started organizing my first swap!

Also, I am the one with the crazy decor... Anyone out there who doesn't really like toooo Christmasy stuff?!?!

Oooooh, I really want to do this, especially since we are going theme-tastic with our tree this year... it's going to be completely video game themed (not christmasy at all, though I wouldn't be against Mario in a santa hat, haha)... so I have been ornaments everywhere I can, so this would be perfect!
I am going to have to think about it for a few days (see how I am feeling, I am dealing with some serious butt kicking morning sickness atm)....

Zelda.Suicide. That. Is. Awesome.

You definitely have to join... Even if it is the "lite" group (hint, hint, lol).

GAH! I knew that a swap like this would open up before I finished my first official swap. Sad

I'm completely into making Christmas ornaments.

What's the possibility of having another similar swap in the next month or so?

(I don't want to threadjack so PM me if you have this answer please! Smiley )

There are usually a few ornament swaps every year. I imagine there will be more this year, especially since Christmas is still pretty far away.  Smiley

I start thinking about Christmas gifts and ornaments the week after July 4th. By now, I'm in "GOTTA MAKE STUFF" mode. LOL
