DETAILS OF SWAP:

Unusual Ornament:  Does not necessarily have to be holiday related but it CAN be.  Examples:  Bacon, Harry Potter, Monsters
   The goal is for a quick yet relaxed swap.   This is not a partner swap.  Depending on sign-ups the groups may consist anywhere from 4-6 people, so you will be crafting 3-5 items.  There are two options to help you (depending on the type of crafter that you are).  The first option is to create the same unusual ornament for all of your partners, that way you can begin crafting now.  The other option is individualizing each ornament after groups are assigned.  This will leave 2 weeks for crafting.  If the general consensus is that 2 weeks crafting time is too quick, we can re-evaluate the send out date.  Extras are NOT required: It should be discussed between partners first.

Each item should be the best representation of your work!

My questionnaire is in! I'm excited. I am definitely thinking of waiting for partners and crafting specifically, so that people can actually get something from THEIR unusual theme list, and not one of mine! Wink (Especially because mine are quite specific).

By the way, here's my list. . . .
1. Glam Gothy (think black and sparkle, skulls, bats, spiderwebs, etc).
2. The (British) Regency Era
3. Harley Quinn
4. The Apocalypse
5. Canadiana
6. Bookish

I'm still torn with which way I'm going to approach this swap.  I guess I'll see what the weekend holds and if inspiration strikes me!

It would only be a problem if only a few people either craft ornaments ahead of time that are Christmasy or will do individual requests.  I'm sure that there are plenty of crafters that would accommodate your request! We'd love to have you, we can work it out.

Oh I am very tempted, every year each child gets an ornament and I know they would love to have something in the mail from a swap that would be theirs. Let me see how my crafting goes today with the pendant swap I'm doing.
