We will each make/decorate a 12-16" tall stocking (cuff to heel) and fill it with goodies.  We will make/decorate and fill with our partner's tastes in mind.  Each stocking will have at least 50% crafted goodies, the remainder may be purchased supplies or items.  Each set of partners will make a decision as to how much and how large of items they wish to fill their stockings with.  There will be check-ins every two weeks, so please be prepared to check-in!  Smiley  Each organiser will check in with her group of swappers via PM, you must respond to that PM>   It's a very long crafting period and we would hate to lose anyone along the way.  You may choose one of three sizes to do in this swap:
                      Small - concentrate on a fab stocking and fill with at least 3 crafted and 3 purchased items
                      Medium - do a great stocking and fill with at least 7 crafted and 5 purchased items
                      Large - aka Spoiler!  A great stocking and no end of goodies!!

NOTE:  This is a holiday based swap so please do not send late - there are times when life interferes with crafting and we all understand that, however a temporary negative will be given to anyone who sends more than two weeks past the sendout date, according to Craftster rules.  If you send late at all, it will be noted in your feedback.  Communication issues will also be noted.  We like to run a very nice, fun and timely swap!

Miss Barbara - I was just looking through the discussion thread about this swap and Sevs mentioned starting signups on the 12th - maybe she made a typing mistake and we really aren't that early.  Have to see what she says about us next time she signs on.

I'm pretty sure if this thread is in the Craft Swaps forum we are free to sign up for it. If she didn't want Q's untilt he 15th I don't think she would have posted this yet or posted the link in the discussion thread. I never even would have noticed the sign up date if you lovely ladies hadn't mentioned it. I bet there will be many of us jumping in before the 15th! I am so excited for it! I can't believe I've done 33 swaps in the past 2 years since I signed up for this as my first! WOW!

Hey, you guys, I got a WATER WIENER! You guys remember those things? I am so happy. My kids keep trying to steal it but no, it is mine!
