I have decided to organise a little Christmas swap and hope that some of you may join me?! I think it would be so lovely to hand make a Christmas decoration/ornament for a fellow blogger and then to receive one in return in the post. I love getting mail...especially happy mail!
So, the decoration should be handmade, in any way you like, you could use crochet, knitting, paper crafting, sewing...the possibilities are endless! It doesn't have to be anything too elaborate...simple is good especially since we are all extra busy at this time of year. There is absolutely no obligation to add anything else to your parcel for your swap partner, unless you especially want to...the decoration/ornament and a little hand written note or card is great.
Please leave a little note in the comments if you want to join in, and if you could also let me know where in the world you are and if you are happy to post overseas or not, that would also be really helpful. I will leave it open until next Tuesday, the 12th November, when I will pair people up and post details here.
I am really quite excited, I love the idea of making something especially for someone else which they will hopefully enjoy having in their home this Christmas and maybe in years to come!
Yes please I think this is a great idea - I'd love to have a go but would rather not post overseas x JaneReplyDelete

I thought I replied to you through email. OOPs it may have not gone through. I am still keen to do christmas swap.
Does the Christmas decoration need to be my own design or can I make something from someone else's pattern?
No worries! That's great, I have left you a little message on your blog...Delete
