"The Enchanted Forest" Ornament Swap(NOW CLOSED!)
"The Enchanted Forest Ornament Swap"
For this swap, you will be creating 1 holiday ornament or decoration for your secret swap partner. You will also include a little sweet treat for them.
Although you may use any medium, please remember that ornaments are generally small.
If you choose to make something larger, like a decoration, that is fine but please understand you may not get something like that in return.
Check with me if you have questions.
Gain inspiration from the natural world within a forest.
Things like owls, birds, hedgehogs, trees, flowers and sprites, pixies, elves, gnomes, acorns, mushrooms, toadstools, chipmunks........well, you get the picture, if not....see below for inspiration:
This swap is USA ONLY due to the quick ship date.
Sign ups are through October 31, 2009. If I get a huge turnout (doubt it) I may close the swap sooner.
I will assign partners immediately.
Deadline to ship out is November 21st, 2009 due to Thanksgiving.
Please do not join if you are over committed this holiday season.
It would be awful to leave a holiday swapper empty handed.
If you are interested, please email me at valpowery(aT)yahoo(dOt)com with the following info:
1. your name
2. your address and phone number
3. your blog address
4. your favorite holiday treat if you have one
5. list a few of your favorite forest inhabitants (unicorn, toadstool, fairy, acorn, gnome, etc...) this will give your partner something to choose from.
6. if you have a 'color' theme you decorate with during the holidays, please include that info
7. are you able to angel if needed?
As always, I am trying to keep expense low and let creativity run high!
That being said, expect to spend no more than $5-$10 on this swap before shipping. I'm sure most artisans/crafters will have plenty of supplies in their 'stash' for this!
Please do your very BEST work...something you know your partner will cherish for years to come.
