2013 Craft Goodies Ornament Exchange is HERE!!!

CG Ornament Exchange is BACK!!!
Are you ready?
I've had so many of you email me asking if it was going to happen again this year, how could I say no? In fact, I must say THANK YOU for helping me to see that it has become a part of more than just my holiday season, but yours too. That was my goal in the beginning, it makes my heart swell to know that that is what has happened. So, let's get this party started...
 
Craft Goodies Christmas Ornament Exchange
sign ups are now OPEN...
Want to play along? Here's what you need to know:
Sign ups are open from today 11/12 through Saturday 11/23.
To officially "sign-up" send me an email with your mailing address and full name as well as the number of ornaments {1-10} that you want to exchange.
 
 
Ornaments can be hand made or store bought, which ever fits your style and schedule. If you would prefer to receive only handmade ornaments just leave me a little note when you email me your contact info.
You will receive* the same number of ornaments back that you send out. Please also include a card or note with your ornament to introduce yourself and pass along a little holiday cheer.
{It's kind of fun to include a small treat with your ornament but not necessary.}
 
*I cannot police this, I go purely on blind faith that you will get your ornaments to the people waiting for them. I can however send a lot of annoying reminder emails...
 
You will receive an email by 11/25 with the names and addresses of those that you send your ornaments to--one ornament per name.
The names will all be different so making the same ornament is totally okay!
 
MAIL DEADLINE IS  Wednesday, 12/4!!!
How you ship the ornaments is up to you, but please pack them as best you can so that they don't break! If you need packing ideas, give me a holler,  but please don't miss the deadline so that they arrive in time to hang them on the tree.

And last, I'd LOVE it if you'd email me a picture of your ornaments before you send them out. Last year I received so many notes back saying how cute the ornaments were and I had no idea what they looked like! So I'm just putting it out there...I WANT TO SEE ALL THE ORNAMENTS! And, I'm pretty sure everyone else does too...that way I can also share an exchange post high lighting all your awesome-ness.

**If you participated last year and still have pictures, I'd love you forever if you resent them. My computer crashed last December and ate almost all the pictures I had saved for future posts!


 

***check my archives from Nov 2010 or  Nov 2011 for ideas from the past
Ornament-A-Day series***

That's it! Super simple and tons of fun! I'd love to have you join me. You can email me at { wmgar@comcast.net } to get on the list.

Happy Crafting.
 

Hey...I Caught a Turkey!

Hello friends!
Just a little notice that I'm kicking off the week over at Wood You Like to Craft?
Our theme this week is Thanksgiving D├ęcor so stay tuned all week for some great ideas and inspiration!
 
 
And, because I totally forgot {life's been a little crazy!} here's my October project...

 
It was super fun and my girls LOVED it.
 It was a race to the front porch each morning to see who got to change the countdown numbers. In fact, we had so much fun with it, we're making a Christmas version..
HO HO HO! I can hardly wait!
 
Happy Crafting...
