Winter Exchange

Who's ready for some Christmas fun? :D
For this exchange let's agree on the finished piece, everyone will make an ornament! :)

If you've never made an ornament before, don't be scare, it's really easy, as easy as making a card :) Really!! There are many tutorials online, you can even find one on my blog (DIY round ornament), just search a little and you'll see there are many pretty ways to make a cute ornament ;)

Choose any Margaret Sherry's design you'd like!
+ add 3 extra items for your partner (threads, ribbons, buttons, stickers, etc)
! Do not post photos before your partner receives your parcel, in your blog or here (let it be a surprise)
! When you post it on the mail, send an email to with a photo of all items you've sent
! Let me know when parcels have arrived so I can keep track of every parcel posted/received
! Make sure to say thanks to your partner too ;) As soon as you get a message from your partner, you can post pictures everywhere! :)
! If it's your first exchange here on the group, please, send me your address to
!! PLEASE make sure you only sign in for this exchange if you are sure you will NOT miss the deadline to send, don't let your partner with an empty mailbox on Christmas season, OK?

Secret partners? Yes or no?
If we choose to go with secret partners, you'll know who to send but not from who you'll receive. And we will only post photos when all parcels are delivered or on December 24th (just like we did last year)

❄ October 12th to enter, leave your name on this post
❄ October 14th list of partners will be published here
❄ November 16th to send over seas or November 30th » for example, if you're posting from Europe to Europe, posting at the end of the month it's enough time to be delivered before christmas BUT you should post earlier if your partner is far away

Starting to thread the needle and eager to send me mail on November 16.
Fingers crossed for luck on my exchange since the summer ended and received nothing.

♥ Nia said...

Eleana your partner sent the exchange parcel but the package got lost on the mail. She is making a new gift for you and will send again.
Please, we ask for your understanding. You sent your parcel long after the deadline and you got our understanding too. Works both ways.

♥ Nia said...

Eleana, what's your blog link?
The link we have here on the blog, says the blog was removed... do you have another one?
