Other than that, have fun, do your best work, and let’s make ornaments! (Feel free to list other holidays as themes for your list, if you wish.)
Please do not claim until you have been approved and I have given you the go-ahead!

This is an ongoing swap: Claim an ornament from the list of the last person who posted and post your own list in response. It makes a chain. I will make the last claim to close out the swap.

You will choose (1) ornament theme from your partner’s list and craft it to the best of your ability.

ABOUT SENDING AND RECEIVING…

  1. When you send to the person you have claimed, you MUST PM the organizer with the delivery confirmation # or if you are outside the US, you need to either PM the customs number on your receipt from the post office or upload a copy of your post office receipt.
  2. When you receive a claim, you MUST PM the organizer so she can update the main list.
  3. We are asking that everyone post once a week in the discussion/gallery board–so that we know you’re still here with us. Obviously, if you join mid month, you would only need to post for the weeks you are in the swap (the last 2 weeks because you weren’t in the swap during the first 2 weeks).
  4. Feedback will be given once all of your packages have been received.
    If all of your claims have been received and you wish you leave the swap prior to the end of the month, please pm me for feedback.

First time swappers can start out by making only one claim. Once it is received, you may make up to 3 unsent claims at one time. Once you have sent and shown proof it was sent, you can claim again.

I’m Jen and I live in the USA. (Our house has a dog.)

My themes (In no particular order):

  1. Gnomes- the David the Gnome style (like little Santas)
  2. Santa and Mrs. Claus
  3. Hearts (like valentines, not anatomical)
  4. Sugary treats (like Gingerbread Houses, donuts, Icecream, and candy)

  8. Right now my daughter loves Disney’s “Chicken Squad” and they don’t seem to have any merch available out there for that. Something with the characters from that show would be amazing but I’m not even sure how that would work.
