    Christmas ornament swap 2013

    Hi Everyone...believe it or not, it's that time of year again. This will be the FOURTH annual Christmas Ornament swap. Here are the details and if you have any questions PM me.

    Christmas/Holiday Ornament Swap Guidelines
    1. Sign up by October 5th 2013
    Mail on November 5, 2013 so they are there in plenty of time to use and enjoy for Christmas.

    2. Ornament should be handmade. It doesn't *have* to be quilted, but it does have to be handmade.

    3. Each person can do up to two ornaments.

    4. This will be a direct person to person mailing to save postage. I will email you the person (people) that you are sending to by October 10th.

    5. This will be an international swap so if mailing internationally is a concern for you, please let me know in a PM.

    6. If you would like to participate, please PM me the following information:
    Screen name
    Real name
    Address
    # of ornaments that you want to swap (1 or 2)

    7. Make sure that you enclose a note to let your person know who you are !

    8. Please read the guidelines for all swaps on the board at this link http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-20154-1.htm

    9. Have Fun getting ready for the holidays and let your creativity flow! PM me is you have any questions.

    10. This is a secret swap and you will not necessarily be mailing to the same person you will receive from.

    Swap has been approved by moderators.

    I am in for 2, I had a blast doing it last year! Going to my lqs tomorrow for our annual ornament class...where we all get together and my friend Sandee shows us all the new ornaments she has come up with for us to make...we all also share our own ideas...we each take something to eat and spend the day having a blast!
    Off to pm you now,

    I saw several of the ornaments last year as they were getting made, but I didn't see your slide show of all of them together until today. Now how in the world did I miss that??!! What is wrong with me??? That's a rhetorical question, please don't all bombard me with what is wrong with me...
    Anywhose, those are awesome! I will have to pull up this thread tomorrow at our class and show these off!!!

    The kitty with the selvage mouse orny is so cute! Then I saw the sheep and cow ones, gave me a chuckle.. I collect pigs, never thought of making an ornament one til now. Lots of talented creative people here...

    Hi all,
    Here's a link to the lqs I "haunt", I had posted it over on the pre-swap orny swap thread
    (does that even make sense??!!).
    I had posted it for Lynnie few days back as today we are at lqs working on our annual ornament class, and there is an area with some pics of last years ornaments. I am moving it here so we are all in the right area. When you're on the link home page, click on classes, scroll down a bit, there are the orny pics.

    Well look who dropped in for a swap! Hello Paintmejudy! Haven't heard much out of you since the last scrappy mystery quilt! Have you thought about doing another one? Say after the holidays? A bunch of us having been missing you girl!

    I posted this swap over at the Secret Santa swap because I know quite a few on that thread like to do this one as well. Hope they come over & sign up. It will make for some interesting ornaments!
