Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap 2009

As there are only 85 days left till Christmas and things start getting a little busy we often can’t manage big swaps… so…. how about just a little swap ?

Clare from Clare’s Craftroom and Daisy Quilts have joined forces to arrange the “Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap 2009”.

This swap is an easy one for this time of the year as it’s a very small swap.. so small in fact, that it’s made to hang from a Christmas tree…. and one could be on your Christmas tree if you’d like to join us!!

The swap is open to all those with a blog in Australia and overseas. To participate you must be willing to mail overseas and honour your swap commitment.

The details: All players will be allocated one swap partner. You will send directly to your partner and she will send directly to you.

You will make and send one only gorgeous handcrafted Christmas tree ornament and one lovely Christmas Card for your partner (nothing extra). The ornament will measure no more than 5 inches (approx) and should be handmade by you with love and care. (Example: Make something special that you would love to receive yourself. Please do not cut out a paper star and send it to your partner.)

Here are some ornament ideas.

All ornaments must be mailed by (and including) the 1st December and should be suitable to send in the mail. Postage to overseas will need to be sent by Airmail, so our partners receive their little bundle by Christmas day to hang on their tree.

Clare and Robyn will be posting links to more ornaments and (hopefully) some finished ideas just in case you need some extra inspiration .

So…. if you would like a small tree ornament (no bigger than 5”) handmade especially for you by another friendly blogger sign up now!

Please take the button from the sidebar to add to your blog and let’s have some fun making bloggers trees the best ever this Christmas!

Sign ups will take place here at Daisy Quilts until (and including) 1st November.
