A Surprise Christmas Swap

It's time for a Christmas Swap! So I thought how fun would it be to have a surprise Christmas swap. Here's how it works. I will give each person a swap partner. Those two people can exchange emails to give each other 3 of their favorite items for Christmas or if they like prim or not prim. Then that person picks one of those items to make for their partner and mails it to them. It will be a surprise to see which they get.
This can include santas, snowmen, wreaths, Christmas trees, stitcheries, stars or anything else that has to do with Christmas. You can choose ornies, door hangers, bowl fillers, sitters, etc. You can get ideas on what your partner's favorite colors for Christmas are and anything else you think you need to make this a one of a kind Christmas swap. If you decide to do ornies or bowl fillers, please make at least 3 for your partner.
All that I ask is that your item be homemade and something that you would like to receive yourself, not just something thrown together.
Anyone iterested in joining in the fun email me at valerie999@comcast.net with your name, address and email address before this Sat. Oct. 24. I will give you your partner's name on Mon. Oct. 26. Packages are to be mailed by Nov. 16. That gives you 3 weeks to make your swap partner's gift and get it in the mail so that we will get them in time to display for Christmas.
This is going to be so much fun. I love the mystery of Christmas and I hope you do too. If there is anything I haven't thought of, just drop me a line and let me know. Until next time...
