I have a bit of a conundrum… I haven’t signed up, because I don’t know that I have time to craft new ornaments between now and Sendouts. We have lots of family coming to our place for Thanksgiving, and I’m trying to finish holiday gifts (both handmade and shopping), and I’m chasing a toddler around, who really doesn’t want to play in mommy’s studio.

BUT… I did just find a stash of HP ornaments that I already made a few years ago. So I do have some fun, handmade HP ornaments ready to go to new homes. But I would feel really guilty not making things based on my partners questionnaires… What do you guys think? Would folks be interested in random surprise ornaments, not based on their questionnaires?


I for one would be very happy with a random surprise, your ornaments are always awesome, I guess everyone else would be thrilled too.


I’d also be happy with a random surprise ornament! Totally understand about lack of crafting time.


Random surprise is fine with me too!


Ok, I sent in my questionnaire.

Also, two of the ornaments in the first post of the thread are in my collection! LOL


I’m also fine with a random surprise!

Partners are up!

I’ve added you all to the questionnaire conversations, :crossed_fingers: that works. If not, I’ll send you your partners Q tomorrow. It’s almost pumpkin hour here, so time for bed

Thank you all for playing. I love this swap.


Yay! So excited for partners and already scheming.


I am making plans, too. Have it narrowed down to six ideas!


I thought I had my ideas set last night…but then I think of something I want to make instead. Time to pull out all my supplies and see which ones are shouting the loudest.


Oh, my goodness! My son had a better idea than any of the six I’d thought of myself. But, can I pull it off by the deadline…?

Ornament #1 is 95% done. I just need to apply three or four coats of sealer and pray I don’t ruin the thing. I love it so reallllllly hoping the sealer behaves.
