In keeping with the spirit of craftster, I would say either a crafted item or supplies.  It should be a larger item, so a medium or a large in size, depending on what the partners agree on.

Big collection of Kenmore presser feet to swap/trade/sell!!  Ruffler foot, etc.  Please PM for details!

seriously thinking about this one, knowing I'd have a month to craft is really playing into signing up (I'm also in the advent calendar swap)

Looking for the free row by row patterns.  If you are able to get me one from your town I will paypal you $2 for postage.

Okay ladies who have sent me your questionnaire, this swap should be listed on your profile.  I must say, so far we've gotten some amazing crafters on our team, so this should be an awesome swap.  Those of you who are on the fence, please do consider signing up.  I think with the month long crafting period, and with the lower shipping cost of many smalls, it could be a great swap to add to other Christmas swaps or as your only Christmas swap.  Cheesy

So, what is everyone looking most forward to for Christmas?

So, what is everyone looking most forward to for Christmas?

I don't have family other than my husband and children in this area so my created family of friends all come over Christmas eve for a huge dinner. Even in leaner times my kids have even stated they would rather have everyone over for that dinner than any gifts under the tree.

And I love small crafts because every year, in some new way, I hide gifts for my guests. Such as one year I ran woven sleigh style baskets down the center of the table as a centerpiece with small boxes made out of Styrofoam and wrapped in paper to look like it was full of little fake presents, but, at the end of the meal I had them all pull the ribbon attached to their place holder and attached to the end were small gifts I made for each of them.  This will be my 14th year doing this and we still manage to get someone new every year who has no idea and its fun surprising them and all the guest who now know have fun trying to figure out where they are this year and waiting to see how the newbie will react.

So thats really what I am looking most forward to other than this swap!

Oh I am so glad that you did this again this year. I had to pull out last year.

This is a brillliant swap for single moms or people who's partners just don't get christmas stockings, so I am so in...Since I am a single mom and my stocking always tends to be on the skinny side. One thing we did last year was have the goodies posted to a SO if possible, so that they could be put into the stocking without the recipient seeing them until christmas morning..I plan to ask my partner to do that this year.


I love personal swaps, for supplies, surprises, flamingo themed things and general silliness.

Would love some hand knitted socks for my big foot boyfriend.

I would love it if my little gifts were all wrapped up, so I could just stick them into my stocking.  (I love waiting for christmas to open presents!) 
I would wrap my partner's stuff too, and/or send to an SO to do the stocking filling...whatever would work best!

Step off, I'm doin the hump.

I did this last year and it was such good fun. I signed up on my mums behalf last year and she was so happy to get a super full stocking - my partner nailed all of the gifts.

I'm not sure whether to do it this year. I probably wouldn't do it for my mum again and I am already signed up for the advent calender swap. But...



Don't frown because someone might be falling in love with your smile.

Ok I only have 1 spot open and I am already in the advent calendar swap but this sounds like so much fun that I am working on my questionairre now! 
My dh and I spoil our daughter at Christmas plus her birthday is 6 weeks before Christmas so we don't have much money to buy each other gifts and he never gets me stocking stuffers anyway so it will be nice to receive a bunch of little gifts for myself.

Well I'd sworn off swaps for a bit but this is just too tempting to resit. Add to that the fact that my husband just plain sucks at stuffing stockings this is a great reason to join!
