I know I said I'd post a list of swap partners tomorrow but I didn't realise I had another university open day to attend with Eleanor. I won't be around much tomorrow so I'm posting the list today.
Once you've seen who you've been paired with, can you please make contact with your swap partner either by email or by commenting on their blog. You will need to exchange addresses but please make sure this is done by email, I don't like seeing people's personal details posted on blogs. It would also be helpful if you could leave me a comment letting me know that you've made contact with your partners.
There's been a really good response, twenty six people including myself are joining in which means there'll be thirteen swaps taking place. Here's a list of your partners:-
Fat Dormouse Getting Thinner - Pam from A New Life in Wales
Gilly from Gilly Makes...HQ - Jo from Angel Jem's City Cottage
Mitzi from Lazy Days & Sunday's at Willow Cottage - Rebecca from Writing, Fatshion, Me
Ellie from Feltabulous - Sally A from Crafty Northerner
Kimberley from Creative Chaos - Alison from Life at Sylvan House
Jo from A Whole Plot of Love - Susan from Granny Smith's Quilting
Hazel from World of Joy - Alcea Rosea 31
Jo from Through The Keyhole - Simple Living
Clicky Needles - Maria from Dotty's Daughter
Amy from Love Made My Home - Debbie from Fairy Bluebell's Craft Adventure
Cheryl from My Little Piece of England - Michelle from The Diet Starts Tomorrow..
Marlene from Poppy Patchwork - Frugally Challenged
Eleanor from Stitches and Seeds - Janet from MacQue
You've now got until the beginning of December to get your gifts together. They should be things you'd be happy to receive yourself and you may choose to make some of the gifts if you so wish.
I'm sure you'll have no trouble choosing gifts for your swap partner but you can have a look at The Twelve Days Of Christmas post I wrote back in January which shows the gifts I received from Lisa last year if you get stuck. Some people may enjoy receiving things such as books, stationery, crafting supplies, ornaments, smellies, jewellery, candles, edibles and if your partner lives in a different country from yourself, they may enjoy receiving things they wouldn't be able to get in their own country. That's just a few ideas for you.
Each gift should cost a maximum of £2, it's not about the cost, it's about gifting things which your partner will like.
Your parcel should contain twelve gifts wrapped individually so that your swap partner is able to open one on each of the twelve days of Christmas, and should be posted by the 5th of December 2015. Those who are swapping with partners from other countries should check the last posting dates to ensure their parcel will arrive in time for Christmas.
Only one gift should be opened per day starting on the 25th December 2015 through to the 5th January 2016.
It would be a nice idea to show the gifts you received on your blog in January.
If anyone is unsure about anything or has any problems, don't hesitate to get in touch. You can find my email address on my sidebar under the Contact Me section. Above all, have fun with this swap, afterall, that's what it's all about.
