I was hoping someone would have hosted a stocking swap but never did! I can't rememember who hosted it last yearBlushing ! Please forgive my memory!

I came up with this one. I really think we are going to have alot of fun with this one! It is going to be a very active swap! So if you can't commit, please don't join!

My idea is to buy a stocking and fill it up with 12 goodies! This will be a partner swap so that we can make it personal!

The requirments are......
1. You are to buy a stocking!
2. You are to purchase 12 gifts using the 12 days of ideas below!
3. You must send things your partner will use on a daily basis!
4. No Christmas themed items!
5. Must be in your partners hand by Dec. 12th! No excuses! IT IS A REQUIREMENT!
6. You must wrap each gift and number it!
7. We will begin opening one gift per day on Dec. 12th! Starting with day 12! This will be our way of counting down to Christmas Eve!
8. You must post a picture of your stocking and all gifts.
9. You must post a picture of your opened gift and a thank you DAILY!
10. Post DC#s on the thread!

12 days of goodies! You do not have to number in this order! Rememember we will start opening with day 12.

1. Something Square
2. Stamp
3. Favorite Color
4. Bling
5. Metal
6. Adhesive
7. Embellish
8. Trim
9. Coloring

Rats! Would have loved to have joined, but mailing from Canada to USA is taking anywhere from 10-20 days. And once December starts, I can only imagine how much longer it would take. Crying

Hello Ladies...

AWESOME to see new sisters wanting to play....how cool....



I'm Rhonda...aka Heart2hand and I'm married to my best friend. I have 4 grown kids and have the house now to ourselves and LOVIN' that. I have a craft room...and I'm in it every day. It's a oasis to get away from the stress of daily life.

I need to stop doing swaps and USE what I have rec'vd in these swaps...lol. IT's great to have cyber friends that UNDERSTAND the importance of crafting...lol. I have made tons of friends on this board and would be lost without them.

I'm so excited to be taking part!

My name is Wendy. I am married and have two boys (3.5 and 13 months!) I have just finished putting together a great craft area in out finished basement and I can't wait to get down there and do something, but it is hard with two little guys running around and getting into Mommy's toys. BigGrin

I started scrapbooking a long time ago with CM and once I discovered the other things out there, I never went back! Don't get me wrong, I still use a lot of my CM items, but there is soooo much more - as you all know!
I have been a member here since 2006, but rarely post. I am always on here looking for ideas and things I can scraplift! Wink
I frequent weekend crops in my area (although there haven't been too many in awhile) because it really gets my motivation and ideas flowing. I wish there was a closer group of ladies who I could get crafty with. I mostly scrapbook, but haven't made a complete album in over a year - and that one was for my cat. Tongue

So glad to join you!

I hate to do this, but I need to drop out of this swap. Something came up and I have to save my hard earned pennies for a daughters medical bill.... Nothing major she just had to have an x-ray for an ongoing tummy problem. Who knew a six year old would be drinking Miralax a couple times of week.... Anyways, you ladies have a wonderful swap. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

I am Penny. I have been married to my best friend for 28 years. He doesn't understand my craftoholic nature but he doesn't stop me either. I have three children 23, 21 and 16. I am a perennial grower by day and a crafter by night.

I have been crafting all my life. Right now I have a passion for photography, and coloring with copic markers. I found magnolia stamps about a year ago and have been obsessed with them ever since. Prior to this I used my cricut a lot more than I do now.

I also do floral design, scrapbooking, sewing, jewelry making, video editing, quilting and have in the past done knitting, crocheting, braided rugs,and embroidery.

I took the copic certification class last month and was happy to meet other people as crazy as I am when it comes to crafting. I'm hoping that maybe some of you are the same and would love to get to know you.

Penny...Happy to have you with us. I would LOVE to know more about coloring with COPICS...I'm still a beginner and would love all that you would like to share. Do you color DK to LT or LT or DK? I've watched several videos and most do DK to LT...Do you have fav combos you use?

I too love to crochet....and knit...but do NOT know how to cast off on knitting....any suggestions? I was taught by my grandmother when I was about 11 to crochet granny squares and the love took off from there. I felt like it was a dying art....do not hear much about this anymore.

I'm NOT a green thumb at all...everything I get ends up dead. Not sure what I do wrong...I water the plants....then there are dead....Ughhhh...


Hello to all the other new ladies here too. Hope to get to know you as well.

Jess....do we get sisters today?
