Details of swap:
The weather is starting to get chilly and Christmas isn't too far off yippie! I've organized a few ornament swaps in previous years and they are always great fun. You can have up to 3 partners (but newbies will only have 1 partner). Send each partner at least one handmade ornament and another small Christmas related item which can be purchased or handmade.

DCNs are NOT required but if your partner doesn't receive you must resend.
Please put 'Ornament Swap' in the subject line for all PMs pertaining to this swap.

Need ideas? Check out this flickr group.  Also, here's some embroidered pillow ornaments I made for a previous swap:

Ooh, yay! I was hoping this swap would happen again this year. I love the idea of sending to and receiving from multiple partners. I think I'll have to fill out my questionnaire.  Smiley My goal is to have a ton of handmade ornaments on my tree this year to celebrate my first Christmas in our new house.

Since you already have positive feedback for your first swap, you can now sign up for up to five swaps at once. You should be able to sign up for this one now.  Smiley
