*** Ornament Exchange! ***

**Sign up is now closed. Thank you to all the participants!**
Okay ladies, I've been thinking about this for a long time and I'm really excited about it. We're organizing a Blogger Ornament Exchange!

The rules:
1. Sign the Mr. Linky below with your name and blog link(cut off date for sign ups is Oct. 25)
2. Be willing to send an ornament of aprox. $10 value to your partner. They can be handmade, store bought, Etsy bought, whatever.
3. Email me (joshandbeki AT yahoo.com)with your name, address, and blog link. Please put Ornament Exchange in the title of your email! This is the most important step. I've not received some of your names and addresses yet which means I can't assign you a partner. :(
4. I will assign partners and contact you with their name/address.
5. Ornaments will need to be mailed by Nov. 22 at the LATEST.
6. ---- If you'd like, join the flickr group to share pictures and links! ----



*Please note that this is for fun only. I am not responsible for non-shippers, but hopefully we won't have any.

If you'd like, share the logo on your blog to help spread the word so we can get even more participants. The more, the better! You can just copy and paste the box you see over ------> there, down on the right column. Thank you TumTumTree for showing me how to do that!Once you have your partner, you might get an idea of their taste by checking out their blog.

The gorgeous logo was created by the incredibly talented Cathe Holden at JustSomethingIMade. I contacted her for a logo and she became more of the brains in this idea than I could've imagined, so THANK YOU Cathe!!

This is fun! I love ornaments. I used to get a new one every year when I was kid, and now my daughter(even at 9) buys me a new one every year. Love it!

I think I shall make one. I have a really beautiful idea for one.

Sylvia C. said...

Hooray! Another creative task. I love it!
Thanks for organizing something so fun, and inviting us all to join!

Now, tell me... are these to be handmade, store-bought, a combination... or whatever I choose?

Thanks!

Sylvia C.

What a great idea! Really fun! My husband just told me not to sign up for anything else in November, so I'll have to do some talking before I commit or I'll be in big trouble! LOL! How fun. And that logo is so cute! I love what she did!

Blessings,
Melissa

Howard Avenue said...

I'm sorry Lauri, I will send you one! Now for my problem...I got a beautiful ornament. Blue and white quilted...for my love of the Yankees...I just don't know who sent it because I have misplaced the card that came with it...does anyone know who sent it? Please help, I would love to acknowledge this beautiful gift.
