It's Time! Third Annual Handmade Holiday Gift Swap!

Can you believe how fast the holidays are approaching? I also can't believe this is the third year I'll be hosting my super fun handmade holiday gift swap!

Here are the details!

1. Your gift must be handmade. Meaning, it must be an item your two hands have touched, manipulated or altered in some way. Vintage items are ok but you must have done something to it. Crafts and items made from scratch are also good.
2. The item plus any materials needed must not total more than $20 USD.
3.You must ship your item to its recipient by December 15th.
4. And lastly previous years have necessitated some etiquette in the rules. If you know you're going to be busy and  might not be able to send out a gift please don't sign up. Nothing is more disappointing than spending time on your own gift and then waiting for one that never comes. Also, please send a thank you email, mention in a post or find a way to say a simple thanks to the person who sent you a gift!

You have until November 15th to sign up by sending an email to myflightsofwhimsy(at)gmail(dot)com.

Please include:
your full name
your address
your website or blog
your email

On November 16th I will send you an email about who you will be sending your gift to. But they won't necessarily be the person sending a gift to you! Tricky tricky, it's a surprise!

Now the 2nd gift swap was twice as big as the first so lets get the word out and see if we can double the size again! I want everyone to join the fun! Please let friends and readers of your own blogs know so they can sign up.

Let's make this the best year yet! Send me an email and sign up forthwith!

I would LOVE to be in your swap but I'm not sure I will have time. I am new to your blog so I shall watch the swap with interest.

So inspiring! I really miss creating things with my two hands (and not computer mouse-filled hands at that). What a great idea.

This is such a sweet idea Brandi. Knowing myself and what I have stacked on my plate, I think it would cause me intense stress to try to make anything before then. But I DO hope you share some the of the presents.

Sigh... I miss having time for little projects.
