Details of swap:
:christmas_tree: How are you spending the holidays? Perhaps you will be cozied up at The Burrow, wandering the halls of Hogwarts, or having a good old-fashioned Muggle gathering… but really what better way is there to celebrate than with a little Harry Potter Holiday crafting! For this swap we will be exchanging 1 small to medium Harry Potter holiday ornament or stocking stuffer like mini-hooplas, jewelry for the Yule Ball, etc.

:gift: You may have 1-3 partners in this swap. First time swappers will be limited to one partner. Everyone else may choose to have 1, 2 or 3 partners.

:owl: You can IYP! You are welcome to Invite Your Partner, if there is someone you are interested in swapping with. Please note that both sides must agree to be partnered, and the person you ask has the right to refuse. If your IYP agrees, both of you must PM MistressJennie.

:candle: Please note that while most folks in the swap celebrate Christmas, this swap is open to everyone and swappers are welcome to ask for Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or other holiday themes if they prefer .

Please answer the following questionnaire to help guide your swap partner. Copy, fill it in and send to @MistressJennie via PM Please do not reply here.

I want to participate, but I’ve got so much to do! Of course, if I’ve got a lot of stuff on my plate I could sign up for one partner only :stuck_out_tongue:

You absolutely can sign up for just one partner! Just because I allow 3 doesn’t mean you have to take them. :smile:

I always do this swap for my daughter. I’ve sent her the questionnaire so my partners will be crafting for her favorites.

Goodness, it seems our swap wasn’t showing up in the Open Swaps link at the top of the website. That may be why we’ve had so few folks sign up so far, for what has been a traditionally very popular swap. I’ve fixed it now, so lets hope we get lots more friends joining us!

I only found it because you had posted the link in the Craftalong. I had been checking daily for it and hadn’t seen it until I saw it in the Craftalong.

Just finished my questionnaire. Looking forward to this swap!

The Harry Potter Swap had the second highest number of votes out of all of the swaps (close to 40% if I recall correctly), yet we only had 6 crafters sign up… :woman_shrugging:t2:

I’m still debating to join or not to join…
Can you see who voted? Otherwise you could sent a pm with the link?

I wanted to join, but I got really busy during the signup range and missed it. :frowning:

I have to table my swap participation untik the new year, I’m afraid. Otherwise I’d be allllll over these HP ones! I will, for sure, be stalking all the galleries and stewing in my jealousy!

In the new year, I’ll be doing another round of I Want to Live in the Burrow, so you’ll have one to jump into. :love_you_gesture:

Because of the snafu with the swap not appearing in the list of open swaps, and us only having 8 swappers right now, I’m extending signups through tomorrow evening. If you’re on the fence, hop on over!
