Your guidelines look okay to me Trud. Just be sure to have who is participating on this thread too. Or at least the number of people participating since that will be my determining factor!
I'm going to make a 'prototype' and take it to the post office as if I am mailing it and see what I am looking at as far as shipping costs go, so I need to have a number to multiply that by!!!
Thanks a bunch!

Oh, me, me, me!! I wanna play, too. I'm in.

Trud, your guidelines are great. I think that will discourage non-serious swappers.

Yeah, I'm the one without a tree. No, I don't mind making an ornament. I'll try to string mine up by the kitchen window this year.

Sounds good. I'll send you a PM on my address.

Default Added bonus!

I decided to throw in a bonus... Everyone who participates in this swap will get their name in a hat. The name drawn out of the hat gets a prize from me. Consider it your Christmas bonus!

Omygosh! I'm so excited about this! As I said, I want to keep with the vintage theme left over from last year's victorian boots. I came up with a plan to create vintage hotair ballons for my swap this year. I'm kinda hung up on how to do the basket right now. If you can think of something, let me know.

I will once again be the crazy woman that fills this thread with my ornaments that I'm making. It was fun to me last year and kept me enthused. So, I'm going to keep the tradition again this year!

Bonus?! How cool is that? Thanks Trud.

I'm working on ideas at the moment. I haven't started anything else.
