Ornament Swap!

can you believe it's already that time of year again? this year marks the third year of hosting the ornament exchange on my dolce vita and i couldn't be more thrilled! 


getting to spread Christmas joy and connecting with another blogger is my favorite. 

to join: 

* email me, micaela.maxhamATgmail.com with subject line: ORNAMENT SWAP! 

* include your postal address + blog link (also indicate if you can't send overseas)

* cut off date is Nov. 11th {i'll try and get everyone partnered by Nov. 14th; ornaments will be mailed out by Nov. 26th}

* ornaments can be bought/vintage/hand-made... whatever you fancy but $10 is the max spend amount because i know it's about to get crazy with holiday shopping. Please put some thought into your ornament-- check out your partner's blog and see what her style is etc. 

* DO include a Christmas card for your person. Tell them your favorite Christmas quote, song, or why you chose the ornament for them. 

Have fun with this! snap a photo of your ornament sent/received so we can share them on our blogs (i love the actual exchanges and showcase them).

Yay! 'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la la......

So you know I'm in, of course!!! Never any doubt! I'm rambling so you know I must be excited! I will post about it tomorrow when I post my first Christmasy post :)

I love you xoxoxo

Karina said...

P.S. I'm super excited to be the first one to sign up! I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that you told me that it would be up today, and that I've been sitting in front of my computer all morning waiting for this post! Nope it has nothing to do with that little fact, plus it's a lie. Hey and what took you so long sister!!! Tsk....tsk...

ooo i want to do this!!!! I love Christmas SO MUCH!!!! :) (i got your postcard today! Love it! I've never read the Dracula books, he scared me big time when I was a kid!

You KNOW how I feel about your ornament swap! It fills my heart with Christmas joy :) And so... I am signing up right this second. Yay!

I actually put on the Christmas music this morning and am listening to it while I write you a letter and tackle the laundry. Bing Crosby makes me feel happy, even on the lousiest of days.

Right now it's "Have yourself a merry little Christmas"... and the line is "Next year all our troubles will be out of sight." Oh, how I hope so.

Lots of love and jingly bells,
E xoxoxo

Sooooo sorry I didn't email you back about this, but everything sounded great & obviously I can't wait to participate. :) Love you!

I would love to join this ornament swap but I won't be putting up a tree (obviously you know I will be away for Christmas) this year. Plus, I have exhausted my swap quota for the year. I am so upset that it cost me over $15 this morning to mail out two scarves (and that is within Canada).

Anyway, I hope to join in the fun next year if you host it again. Good luck and have fun sweetie!
