I was organizing my craft table last night and came across some patterns for ornaments that I really want to make but never get to. I wait until November most ever year to get started on them. By then, life goes bananas for me both at work (I'm a teacher so that's close to end of semester for me) and personally.

Why do we wait to make those ornaments? I couldn't come up with a good answer so this calls for an Ornament swap in June!

I was thinking that we could create a list of 10 or so themes and craft 3 ornaments (2 from themes and one of your own choosing). Basically, this would be 3 smalls in the month of June.

What do you think?

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

I like your idea.  These days, small swaps make a lot of sense to me.  I also am crazy for Christmas, so this would be my cup of tea. Wink

I like this idea too.  I actually kept all my Christmas crafting stuff out because as a New Year's resolution I said I was going to craft for Christmas all year long.  I've been too busy swappin' though.  Tongue

I was thinking 2 weeks for sign ups and maybe a month to make and send. Smiley

That sounds great.  I've ordered a book through paperbackswap.com for Christmas ornaments, which should arrive soon, which will be great.
