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 a different person than you receive from! 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 and it's not too expensive if you keep the box as small and light weight as possible.

Here are the details:1. Sign-up will run today through Saturday, November 7th.
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. Some of you know already you are a no-reply blogger, so if you don't hear from me by e-mail, I will reply to your comment here and ask for your e-mail.
2. I will announce your partners by Sunday, November 8th.
3. Purchase (new or vintage) or make an ornament (spending limit is $15). This will be easier to decide on when you get the information I willl be sending you about the person you will be sending to. I will send everyone a questionnaire to fill out and return to me by e-mail to assist your partner in selecting what to send you.
4. Ship your ornament by November 21st.
5. I will have a link-up on my blog on or by December 12th so you can show off your new ornament from your new friend!
It has been such a blessing to host this exchange for the last two years and I am excited to host again this year.

If you would like to check out the exchange posts from the last two years to get a better idea how this works, please click here and scroll through the posts. :)
I look forward to hearing from you!
