I think three smalls is perfect!  And the timing works really well for me, too. Cheesy

Surely being just 3 smalls it would be ? the postage on that isnt prohibitive Smiley

I would join this for sure...I usually kick in my Christmas crafting around October but I'd be really into swapping for Christmas ornaments.

I will be setting up this swap this weekend!

Just to update everyone interested:

~3 smalls
~sign ups will run for two weeks or until full (see below)
~international swappers are welcome  Cheesy
~a month craft time (maybe 6 wks...still noodling this one )

I will be limiting the number of swappers to 24 total. Once the swap is full, I will partner everyone up and we can get started so yes, potentially even longer craft time!

What could some good small ideas for this swap? I don't know about you ladies, but I tend to think in medium to large terms, hardly ever small.

ornaments (a given)
mini stockings (this could be cool if you personalized them with names!)
garland
small decor like door pulls, pillows, plaques (sp?)
wine glass markers
small snowflake mobiles
table ware like place mats or hot pads
decorated coffee mugs...I like this one! Cheesy

What else? I'll compile a list and add it to the second post of the swap for inspiration. Smiley

Ooh, excellent ideas so far.

How about ... (all of these depend on the skill of the creator because some of these wouldn't be a small for me, but I'm sure they would be for someone else!)

- hot pads/coasters filled with "Christmas" scents, so when something warm is put on them, they smell nice? (cinnamon, etc.)
- little sachets filled with Christmas scents
- small picture frames with Christmas 2010 on it
- for pets - holiday paraphernalia (a Christmas collar or bandana for a dog, a little catnip filled Christmas tree for a cat)
- Christmas jewelry (a pair of earrings, perhaps?)
- small wreaths
- a simple tree topper
- winter/Christmas magnets
- winter-themed dishcloths
