Ornament Swap!

i am an ornaments girl. i think they make the most special gifts.

you'll always remember who gave you that ornament and the joy of Christmas that year.

so i need your help hosting something simple, but with a lot of heart: my first Ornament Exchange!!!

sign up below, commenting you're in (so others who sign up can get an idea of who they may exchange with!) and then email me with your mailing and blog address (if you have one) + whether you're willing to send overseas. On the subject line, put: Ornament Exchange.

In a nutshell: starts today, Nov. 9th

I will close it next Friday, Nov. 20th (so feel abs. free to spread the holiday cheer)

I'll give you your swap partners on Monday, Nov 23rd

so that you have time to send your ornament to the selected person by Tuesday, December 1st. that way we will have time this year to enjoy our new lovely ornaments on our Christmas trees.

*Ornaments can be vintage/hand-made/bought... whatever you wish but don't spend more than $10 lovies because i know it's about to get crazy with holiday shopping.

DO include a Christmas card for your person and tell them your favorite Christmas memory.

i hope you'll join!


i'm kinda bad at explaining things, so if it sounds confusing and you have any questions, please please drop me a line: micaela.lechugaATgmail.com

ps. i'm digging these feather ornaments... my swap partner may just get one of those. For more inspiration, check out Fallon's Birdcage Ornaments. Hmmm... maybe these ones instead? i love her work.

also... as a thanks, an extra pressie for one lucky participant.

Details here.
