    Cool Calm After The Holidaze

    We have been through the chaos of gift giving... We bought or made the best gifts...wrapped them ever so perfectly...and watch our loved ones tear into them in 2 seconds flat!

    After all of the excitement, we will all go back to work...our visitors will go 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 January 4th. 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 $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 January 5th, 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 February 4th. Also, don't forget to give an Itrader point to the person who gifted you!

    I would love to play, but how can we put a specific value on something that is handmade? Mine are worth $ 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0

    I like everything, would love a canvas painting or I am in real need of black pitt pens ..... just saying.

    I would like in, if anyone wants to mail to an international player after the increased postage in the US that is...

    If you do watercolours I would love some small, labelled samples,
    a handmade art doll,
    glitter, sequins, anything to make little shaker pouches (I love glitter),
    but really, if it makes you happy to make it, it will make me happy to receive it <3

    I know that the handmade thangs are hard to price, but I think for reference we can go by supply cost to make it.

    Would it be ok if we have doubts about the value of a handmade item to add little extra goodies to make up the value more or less?

    Because I have amassed such an extensive stash I don‘t have to buy anything extra anymore, so creating something doesn‘t cost that much and I would put in little extras if that is fine
