Christmas ornament and christmas card collage swaps

Concerning my swap post from the 13th of September I resume as following:

Interested in the self made ~christmas card collage swap~ so far are:

Fiona, Maria, Daisy, Nicole, Inibi and me.

Which makes us 6 at the moment. Two more participants would also be okay. So come on friends, you know you want to craft and swap festive and glittery postcard sized christmas collage cards with us, don't you?

Interested in the *Christmas ornament swap* so far are:

Brit, Ulla, Sandy, Daisy, Margarita, Maria, Monique and me. That makes 8 and is great!

Correct me if I'm wrong please!

I think we are enough, so each of you is sending one nice old fashioned ornament (same for the collaged postcards) to each of the participants and get's one of each participant back. So that at the end we'll all have a lovely little collection to decorate our christmassy homes.

All items should be ready to send out arround November 15th to arrive at the 1st of December ! So we still have plenty of time to collect and create. The christmas ornaments can also be purchased ones, but they have to have a nostalgic or vintage look!

I'm going to e-mail you all next week with the details, presuming I have all your e-mail addies! Oh I'm excited and I'm sure we'll have fun!

Till then, take care xox

This intrigues me, Carol, but I'm still working on the nerve to do it! I haven't done this kind of thing in a long time.

Janet said...

I sincerely wish I had the time right now to join in. I'm hoping things will settle down a bit in the near future and I can have some fun with a couple of swaps but until then I'm bogged down!

I love visiting your blog. You always have the most beautiful photos.

oh Carol ! disregard my note from this morning ! I see that we are sending old ornaments NOT making them as I thought we would be ! that is such a relief and I Hope you will keep me then !

I think I can find eight ornaments to buy and send ! but I was panicking at making eight !

laughing. I got things mixed up once again. (disturbing !)

and one more thing - my email went down this morning after I wrote you that note ! because I am having computer trouble I may not be able to get your answer soon to my note ! so if you are not hearing from me there that is why !

HOpefully I will have it fixed before you mail out the addresses of our partners !

Love, S.

Oh.. I too misunderstood the ornament swap. I thought they were to be handmade. I can't afford to purchase that many, so really sorry, but I think I can't join you in this after all.

To have missed out ::sigh:: on this swap that sounds like it is to be great fun. Oh well ... Next time perhaps!

Olde Fashioned Christmas goodies are always the best! I am already looking forward to seeing what everyone receives!
