*** 2009 Bloggers Ornament Exchange ***

****This exchange is now over. Thanks to all who joined!****

I'm pretty sure I'm crazy. Let's just clear that up right now.
I have no time. I'm stretched as thin as I can possibly go. (why can't that show up in my jeans size? Hmmm...)

But after so much fun last year, and numerous requests this year I'm doing it again.
If I have to stay up a few nights with no sleep, it won't kill me, right?

The Blogger Ornament Exchange!


The rules:
1. Sign the MckLinky below with your name and blog link(cut off date for sign ups is Nov. 12.)
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.
4. I will assign partners and contact you with their name/address. You will be sending to the same person you're receiving from. (this is different than last year.)
5. Ornaments will need to be mailed by Nov. 23 at the LATEST.
6. Spread the word, if you'd like. We also have a flickr group you can participate in.


Just copy and paste the following code into your blog or website.



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

The gorgeous logo was created by the incredibly talented Cathe Holden at JustSomethingIMade. Thank you Cathe!!

That looks really fun! I'm not sure that I'll do it, but maybe. I did love your jean comment, though. You are one funny woman. :)

Wendy said...

An ornament exchange, huh? I'd sign up for it, but frankly, I can't be trusted. Good intentions, bad follow-through. Yup, that's me.

Laura said...

Susan said...

Ruth said...

PamperingBeki said...

Ruth, that's the risk you take. ;-) Are you willing to gamble?! I dare ya. Double dog dare you.

Ruth said...

PEER PRESSURE!! ... ok, i'm in. no promises it'll be classy.

The Perfect Trio said...

Household 6 said...

Hi there,
Quick question about the ornaments...
Would you prefer ornaments to hang on the tree, or ornaments as in decor for the Holiday season?
Thanks!

SharDon Exclusives said...

Oh, my goodness you will have quite a job notifying each one of us. There are 200+ already. When is the cutoff date on signing up? Mine is all done, in a box, and ready to ship...(new kid on the block)...lol If I can help you in anyway, please contact me at
saf47@yahoo.com
Blessings to you today!
Sharon
