Details of swap:
The swap is restricted to 12 people because we will need to do it in groups. That last swap I organized was HUGE. I'm hoping this will be more manageable. We will have groups of four. You will make three ornaments and send to the three other people in your group. If we keep the ornaments small, we should be able to send pretty cheaply.

Do we each make 12 ornaments and send them to everyone else in the swap?

This sounds like fun but want to make sure I know what I'm getting myself into Wink.

What are the details of the swap?

I was wondering this myself.  And why only 12 swappers?

I'm confused  Huh  I've been waiting for this swap to happen but now I'm not sure if I can join or not.  This is where to confusion happens:

Restricted to people who all live in the same country? YES/NO
If so, which country?Yes. USA


but farther down, in the questionnaire it says:

Would you be willing to ship to an address outside your own country?

In the original thread discussing this swap, there was never any mention that it would only be for people from the USA.  I live in Canada and had shown interest and really want to join but need to know - is it USA only or not?

Sorry for all the confusion. I'll fix it. Sometimes I have mommyzimers.

I am so excited!  I just sent my questionare in!  I can't wait! 

I suppose that I have a few questions myself though...maybe it will be a little bit to the partners...
Do we make 1 kind of ornament and then send each partner one?
Or will it be more individualized.

One other question that maybe we should have in the questionare is if we celebrate a traditional Christmas with Christ or just the Santa kind...no offense to anyone, please...I just am sure if you are an atheist on some level you porbably don't want a cross to hang on your tree...just a thought

I think you'll need to individualize your ornaments. If it's something general like cardinals, then maybe you could just make 3 of those. If you want a more Christ centered Christmas, then you can notify your partner.
