If I have forgotten anyone let me know! Don’t forget to contact your partner for addresses! Newbies, I advise you to send out first.
As Christmas is in 9 weeks(!) I thought now would be a good time to start an xmas swap.
<a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/animalnikki/6239886717/" title="Santa by AnimalNikki89, on Flickr"><img src="http://farm7.static.flickr.com/6180/6239886717_6b55871bca.jpg" width="393" height="400" alt="Santa"></a>
So here are the details:
Sign-up open until Tuesday 1st November (yes I know it's long, sorry!)
Send-out date: No later then 30th November. This is to avoid the xmas post so that your partner will hopefully get it before xmas.
What to send:
1. An ornament (hanging or standing - ask your partner what he/she would prefer)
2. A paper-type decoration (possibly fabric if people want e.g. paper chains, snowflake let imagination go wild!)
3. A plushie/dotee/something stuffed or useful (can be xmas themed if you want, not going to dictate size so decide with your partner)
4. A "surprise present" for your partner. MUST be wrapped in wrapping paper for your partner to open on xmas day!
5. A Christmas card (may be handmade or bought, doesn't matter)
6. Anything else you want to send
The plushie may be wrapped if you want to.

If I have forgotten anything please let me know!
Lets get a-cited!!
International shipper: Yep!
Name: Mary ;)
International shipper: of course, but only for this swap I'd like to be paired up with an European partner if possible.
Also, I'm a crappy plushie maker and I wouldn't like to receive one, so if it's not a problem I'd like to be paired up with someone who is willing to replace the plushie with something else. Thanks.
this sounds like such a fab swap
going to have a good long think and look to see if i'd be able to take part in this. i so hope i can
could we make a dotee if we have never made a plushie and wouldn't know where to start
I'm going to change plushie to plushie or dotee or something useful.
@Tracy if you made a big dotee and stuffed its body, maybe gave it arms and legs it could be a plushie.
I said plushie to give some variety so that people can try some new things, for me its going to be stuff made from paper, and making ornaments. plushies were the first thing I made, quite simple, although my first one came out a bit weird because of the sock I used.
Omg I'm so in I love Christmas!!

still trying to make up my mind about this swap , i'm stuck for ideas on what i'd make for An ornament and paper-type decoration

Name: bindiibabe / Heather
Location: Scotland , UK
International shipper: Don't mind either way
*And yes, I have noticed the fact that it seems to have slipped into the CO+K vocabulary rather well
Tracy, I got a million ideas for christmas decs, sign up, and if you're still stuck nearer the time, we'll talk ;P
BTW, dottee doll replacement for plushie could work quite well as hanging/ tree decoration
