Christmas Ornament/Decoration Swap!!

I will be pairing everyone up over the next few days. Hopefully emailing everyone their swap partners by the 20th!! Thanks so the 94 people who joined the swap!!

I know - it's still 3.5 months till Christmas, but I've started painting ornaments and decorations to add to my shop, and all of a sudden I had the urge to start a Christmas Ornament/Decoration Swap!! Every year I buy Christmas decorations and ornaments at the local Fair Trade Store, but thought it might be nice to swap handmade items this year!!

Here is how it will work:
1) Decide how many people you would like to swap with: 1 or 2
2) Will you ship Internationally?
3) Fill out the form below (click on graphic)
4) Make the decoration/ornaments: make one or a set, should be worth at least $10 (some shops participating might have high end Christmas items)
5) Must be mailed by November 15th!!

It's that easy!! Swap Entries will Close on Oct. 15th, so that everyone has time to make and mail the ornaments/decorations. Hopefully we all receive them before Christmas and can display them on our trees and in our houses!!

If you are joining the swap and have a blog - feel free to add the button on the sidebar to your blog! The more Swappers - the better!!
