Christmas Button Floozies Swap!


This swap is now closed!

Let's have another swap before the end of the year!
This one will be a Christmas Ornament Swap.
And, it will be a group swap.
I will put you in groups of 4.
We will each send and receive
3 button ornaments!

Definition of a button ornament:
A Christmas ornament made to hang on a tree or to be a small shelf or table accent, that is decorated with buttons.  The buttons do not necessarily need to be the only decoration element of the ornament -- but it should be a main or special element of the decoration.  Your ornament should be handmade.

Timeframe:
  • Sign-up period: November 1-13, 2011
  • Notification of swap partners: November 12, 2011  November 14, 2011
  • Swaps must be in the mail by: Monday, November 28, 2011
It is a quick turnaround, I realize; please be sure you can adhere to the deadline before committing! 
A NOTE ABOUT INTERNATIONAL SWAPPING:  Because it is a quick turnaround, I'll be matching you up with partners on your own continent; that should cut down on postage costs for everyone and also shipping time!

How it works:
  • You sign up for the swap by emailing me your name, address, and blog address if you have one.  Send the email to: buttonfloozies@gmail.com
  • After you email me the above information, comment on this post that you have; this step is so that I can contact you if Blogger plays tricks on me with emails, as they have been known to do in the past!
  • Once you've signed up, you can begin making your 3 ornaments right away!  You don't need to wait until November 12 to get started.
  • I will randomly place people into groups of 4; on November 12 I will email you each the names and addresses of the swappers in your group.
  • Take a photo of your creations, then send one of your ornaments to each of the other 3 members in your group; be sure to have them in the mail by Monday, November 28, 2011.
  • Sit back and wait to receive 3 different ornaments in the mail from your partners!
  • Once all the members of your group have received your swap, post your photos on the blog and/or on our Button Floozies Swap page on Flickr; I'll do another linky party on this blog so we can all enjoy them!
'Sound like fun?  I hope so!  Tell all your friends!  Everyone is invited to participate!
