Is anyone interested in participating this year?  I put it out early so that we have loads of time to finalize details! 

Here's the details so far:  Signups Sept. 8-28; Sendouts on Dec. 1st.
We make/decorate a 12" - 16" stocking to our partners tastes. Fill it with 50% crafted items (or more) and 50% purchased items (or less). There will be a weekly checkin via question posted in the swap thread - every Friday, unless life gets in the way. 

                      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!!

    Sounds like fun ... do we choose whether to do the small, medium or large swap?

    I think it'd be fun to participate in this!! Shocked I missed the last couple rounds but always loved the galleries. I wonder though if it would be okay to do like a "seasonal" stocking for me instead of specifically Christmas since I'm not really big on holidays? It's still in the spirit of the swap I think.

       Just throwing that out there  Lips sealed And I understand if the answer is no Cheesy

    Yes, you choose: small, medium or large and that's one of the items I use in matching up people.

    Since this is a Christmas stocking swap, the stocking would need to be holiday themed.
