Ornament Swap

  • This location is shown only to members

I thought this would be a fun little craft to get us in the holiday spirit and also a good way to get to know members of the group a little better.  Each person who wants to participate will let me know by signing up here AND then confirming by sending me their email address.  Please only email me if you're definitely going to participate.  

Then I'll randomly match up people and you'll then provide your partner with some info about yourself.  I'll provide a quick and easy questionnaire that everyone can use if they want a jumping off point.  Then you'll make an ornament for your partner that you think they'd like.  It's that easy!  Feel free to add other items if you want but let's try to keep the total cost no more than $10.

Here are the deadlines:

November 22nd:  Last day to sign up by RSVPing here and emailing me your contact info.

November 25th:  I'll email everyone to let you know who you're paired up with.  This will give you roughly 3 weeks to email/get to know your partner and make their ornament before the swap.  

December 16th:  We'll get together at Liz's house on James Island to exchange ornaments.  If you can't make this, you can still participate.  You'll just need to drop off your package with me and I'll deliver them to your partner. If you can make it, feel free to bring an appetizer or beverage to share - it can be a little holiday party for us.

If you're a newbie, this will be a great introduction to the group.  I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

    I may be a few minutes late this evening. But, I'll have homemade apple pie and some vanilla ice cream in hand!

    December 16, 2013

  • Angie T.

    I can bring sodas/tea? I noticed most items are foods.

    December 16, 2013

    • Liz L.

      That'd be great, I pretty much just drink water and wine so no sodas on hand...

      December 16, 2013

    • Liz L.

      Oh, I will have some apple cider tea (hot) on hand so there's that...

  • Theresa

    The goal is sun dried tomato pastry twists (as per usual) or something of equal or greater value (if, as usual, its an epic fail...)

    I am bringing a holiday fruit tray and a bottle of wine.

  • Liz L.

    Hey everyone,

    If you're going to bring an app or beverage, can you please post it in the comments here? I'll pick something based on what others are bringing so we don't end up with 5 veggie trays or something.

    Thanks! Looking forward to it.
