Hi Everyone !!!


This will be a partnered swap with boxes filled with 12 goodies for the holidays. We can start filling our boxes on September 15th (the day you get your partner) and you have until November 25 th to finish it and mail it out. Woot

This is a "SECRET SISTER" SWAP - which means you will know for whom you are creating, but she will not know it is you ! THEREFORE it is IMPERATIVE that you have a MASTER QUESTIONNARIE and that it is up to date by Monday 9/16. Your Secret Sister will need to know something about you in order to make things that you will like....or to send you the RIGHT KIND of CHOCOLATES !!! Ha Ha LOL

SIX items MUST be hand-made and SIX items should be store-bought. One each for the 12 Days of Christmas.

However, we will not just be using the "Twelve Days of Christmas" as the inspirational song.... We will use the following list - each song is for inspiration - it does NOT mean you have to stick to it literally...Please use your Cricut and Cuttlebug crafts for creating as much as possible. You may send your partner edible items as well as decorative and useful items. Read her MQ to see what she likes first so you don't send to chocolate to some poor soul who is allergic to chocolate ! Flapper


1. Silent Night - Holy Night
2. Angels we have Heard on High
3. Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire (The Christmas Song)
4. Oh Christmas Tree !
5. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus
6. It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas
7. Oh Little Town of Bethlehem
8. We Three Kings
9. Frosty the Snowman
10.Jingle Bells
11.Joy To the World !
12. Twelve Days of Christmas

We will NOT be requiring a decorative BOX to hold the items. This usually adds extra weight to a package and makes it harder to pack things anyway. So, the 12 items should each be wrapped in tissue or placed in a bag or paper of some sort, then placed inside a mailing box of your choice. Priority Mail Flat rate boxes are a good way to go...and if you can get what is called a Flat Rate REGIONAL "A" OR REGIONAL "B" box, you may save even more money. They are available at the USPS.COM for free. The type of box you use is entirely up to you but I am encouraging everyone to please save money on mailing ....we do not have to make the Post Office rich. Flapper

ITEMS WILL BE CRAFTER'S CHOICE - but consider your partner's preferences...and make it something that you would be proud to own yourself...

Some things that you could make are : (just ideas)

Christmas tree ornaments
Mini-ALbums (any kind )
Altered Box
Wall hanging
Banner
Set of Christmas or New Years cards (at least 4 cards with envelopes)
A set of Christmas Gift Bags that you decorated.
Something warm and cozy that you knitted with a Knifty Knitter !
An altered teacup pincushion
Altered Picture frame
Photo album
Designer Scrapbook
Altered Tin or Jar filled with Candy


It IS required that you COMPLETE A MASTER QUESTIONNAIRE and that you post on the thread at least ONCE PER WEEK...please ! When you do not communicate it makes your partner feel uneasy....like you are a "Flaker"...and FLAKING IS NOT TOLERATED here ! Thank you ...

If you have never been in my swaps before, you must submit your name, mailing address, email address and a phone number in order to be accepted in the swap. All new members will be required to mail FIRST to their partners, as part of the "anti-flaker" efforts on the MB.




Let's SPOIL Our partners and have a lot of fun Woot Wub

Ok, After seeing the list I am in for this one. I don't think I will have that much of an issue being able to find items to fit these catagories. It maybe more fun trying to decide which way to go.ZD

I want to join, but am honestly stumped by the phrases.
The fall/halloween ideas come so easily to me. Christmas...not so much. I need to think about it some more this week and let you know.

Laura - the phrases (song titles) are for inspiration...not to be taken that you have to make something that literally interprets the words. It may help to choose some decorative papers that depict a certain scene in one of the songs ( like using angel printed paper for the "Angels We have Heard on High" ...but you could also use "Clouds in the sky" printed papers )

ITEMS WILL BE CRAFTER'S CHOICE - but consider your partner's preferences...

Christmas tree ornaments
Mini-ALbums (any kind )

How about some tinsel glitter? I got some in Christmas colors I have not used yet. Might as well shower someone with it who is volunteering. Wink Tongue

On another note... I have thought about joining a swap, but my health and lack of motivation holds me back. ThumbDown

We have a dozen awesome members so far and this Saturday night is the last chance to join this group ! I shall post partners on Sunday....

Should we do "SECRET SISTERS" ? Or, would you all rather know who your partner is ?

I am taking a 'vote' on that question above from all members who have joined.
Love

Just saw your post about doing this as a secret sister or knowing our partners. I'm good with what ever the majority decides. I have not done a secret sister swap on this board. All mine have been partner swaps.

Welcome new member SAndy !

It is beginning to look like a "Secret Sister" Swap...this means you will each get a partner, but not know who has YOUR name...and you have to keep it a secret !Wink Wub
