My 2nd Annual Ornament Exchange
Well ladies...it's that time of the year again! Time for my second annual Christmas Ornament Exchange!
Can you believe it? Christmas is less than eight weeks away!
I can hardly believe this year has flown by so quickly.
Just like last year, I decided to host this early, so you can get your ornaments well before Christmas. I don't know about you, but I decorate early....usually during the week I am off for Thanksgiving. I decorate so much and like to have a few weeks to enjoy gazing at it all. I'm especially excited to decorate this year since the hubby and I renovated our living and dining rooms.
So, for any newbies.....
No big rules....just don't spend over $15. Your ornament can be purchased or handmade by you. It's up to you...:) You can send additional items if you wish, just remember it is not required so don't feel pressured to send extra items or disappointed if you only receive an ornament. I think an ornament and a nice hand-written note is sufficient, but I know some of us just love shopping for or crafting items for others, so you may choose to include an additional item or two. It is entirely up to you...:) Also, you will make two new friends since you will send to one person and receive your package from an entirely different person! Also, please let me know in your comment if you would be willing to send to someone out of the country. I have a few blog friends from other countries whom I want to be able to participate if they wish. I personally don't mind shipping to another country!
You can spread the word by copying the picture below and pasting it into a post with the link to this post. You do NOT have to do this to sign up though! Only if you want to...:)
Here are the details:
1. Sign-up will run today through Saturday, November 8th.
To sign up you just need to leave me a comment! I will contact you after I get your comment and you can then send me your name and address. Please make sure you are not a no-reply blogger. I won't be able to e-mail you if that is the case.
2. I will announce your partners by Sunday, November 9th.
3. Purchase (new or vintage) or make an ornament (spending limit is $15).
4. Ship your ornament by November 20th.
5. I will have a link-up on my blog on or by December 13th so you can show off your new ornament from your new friend!
I was so blessed by last year's exchange and am excited to host again this year. I do hope you'll participate again and pass the word along to any other bloggers whom you feel would enjoy participating.
I look forward to hearing from you!
