Hey, everyone - I'm going to host a Christmas Ornament Swap! You will need one of these clear plastic 2-piece ball ornaments:

!. You can (1) fill/decorate it and glue the two sides together making one ornament, or (2) make two half ornaments, or (3) make just one half ornament. There is no theme other than Christmas, so decorate to your little heart's content! You can get these at any craft store (Michael's, A.C. Moore, etc.) and I believe they come in different sizes.

You will be swapping with just one person and please feel free to throw in some extra goodies if you want to (candy, trinkets, ephemera, something that person collects, etc.).

2. Sign up on this post ONLY in the Comments section.

3. Sign up will be for two weeks, from now until Sunday, Nov. 24 (although I always accept stragglers!). There's no limit to how many may join, as it's a one-on-one swap.

4. I will list your partners on Monday, Nov. 25. Then you can go to their blog to check out their style and likes - or ask them directly!

5. Mailing deadline will be Friday, Dec. 13 - that gives you a few weeks to make and mail.

6. Once you receive your ornament, post it on your blog. If you want to view others' ornaments you can go to the Swap Partners post that I'll make, with everyone's blog link on it.

7. Contact your swap partner for their mailing address. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me (or your swap partner) know!

And, please, spread the word by adding this advertisement on your blog! Thanks!

Oh Sue, I wish I could do this, I promised myself just one swap this winter and I am already involved...I miss the days when we had all the swaps going and the crazy energy....I definitely feel a real slowdown in Blogland and it makes me sad....this is my "happy place" and it is getting smaller and more quiet everyday..
Have a wonderful with this!
