    Cool Calm After The Holidaze!

    Sign up now closed

    Soon a lot of us will be in the middle of the holiday chaos of gift giving... We will buy or make the best gifts...wrap them ever so perfectly...and watch our loved ones tear into them in 2 seconds flat!

    After all of the excitement is over...we will all go back to work...or our visitors will have gone home...and we will be left with that lull after new years...

    Why not have a little ray of gifty sunshiney-ness?! A sweet lil something to look forward to?

    I am looking for those of you that would be interested in a little post holiday gift exchange. Here's how it works:

    Starting from today I will take sign ups on this thread until December 18th. There is no withdraws, so please be sure you want in. To join simply post to the thread, "I wanna play" and list three things you might like to receive. (please no food items) It can be something handcrafted or some sort of craft supply. The item must be a $15-$20 dollar value, this doesn't include the postal cost. I can't guarantee a domestic mailing partner, so please be absolutely sure that you can handle the cost to participate. Also please don't go over the $20 dollar amount. It'll make the peeps that stuck to it, feel bad for not doing more. Finally, with a PM titled "Holidaze Gift Exchange," send me your addy.

    By December 19th, I will pair players up. You will know who you are sending to...but not whom you will be receiving from...not until you get your gift. Your gift should be in the hands of your partner by January 31st. Also, don't forget to give an Itrader point to the person who gifted you!

    Hmm, what would I like? Maybe craft supplies, such as rubber stamps or distress ink? Or something homemade, not picky I love surprises!

    I'd love anything handmade. I'll leave it up to the artist who gets my name. But if they would prefer a list:
    Mixed media canvas art
    Assemblage with found objects
    Handmade book/ journal
    But I'll be happy with anything....

    I would also like to give this a try, and generally I am very easy to please.
    I would be more than happy with

    a handmade/bound journal with watercolour or mixed media paper inside, feel free to art the first page or do backgrounds on random pages, surprise me.
    a hd/hp canvas board (not mixed media to keep it flat since I am an international participant).
    a handmade art doll, again, keep it flat for postage

    CR, look for Mail Art Swap Archive under "Miscellaneous Trading Forums". It's on the second page, you'll find a full description and some pictures.

    CiCi it's a small decorated fabric pouch on a cord that can be worn around the neck. I've always wanted to do a swap for these.
