I've missed out on the last few Christmas swaps what with one thing and another so I thought I'd put together a little swap of my own.
This will be a nice simple swap because I know that lots of you will be busy making gifts for family and friends or getting your makes ready for all those wonderful craft events that take place before Christmas.
How it works
Each of us will be making a fabric Christmas cracker filled with goodies
1) Take a kitchen roll tube (much roomier and nicer than a toilet roll!)
2) Fill your tube with goodies (you're be surprised how much you can fit in!) I think it would be great to include your favourite Christmas joke!
3) Wrap you filled tube in some lovely fabric and tie the ends with ribbon
4) Send your completed fabric Christmas cracker on it's merry way to your swap partner
5) Receive a gorgeous fabric Christmas cracker stuffed with goodies and a lovely piece of fabric too!
Suggestions to fill your kitchen roll
sewing and crafting goodies in the way of buttons, ribbons and threads, needles and pins, stickers, beads, charms and lots more
Christmas chocolates, sweets etc
pampering goodies like nail varnishes, bath bombs, soaps etc
something handmade (as long as it fits in the tube!)
key rings, brooches, earrings etc

This swap is open to UK and overseas bloggers - please state whether you prefer UK or overseas
You don't have to have a blog to sign up but if you don't then I do need a contact email from you
Sign up before the 31st of October - I will then partner every one up and post partner detail with links/emails on the 1st November.
Last posting date for your Christmas cracker will be 1st December - if for any reason you can't make that deadline please let your partner know.
Blog about what you receive and what you have sent so we can all see your wonderful goodies.
I will set up a flicker group and post the link when I have partnered everyone up.
Right, I think that's everything, if you have any problems during the swap then please let me know, but bear in mind that I am only the organiser of this swap it is up to you and your partner to swap details, likes and dislikes etc and to arrange a time to swap (by the deadline hopefully). I do understand that sometimes things happen and if for whatever reason you can't take part in the swap and need to pull out then please let me and your partner know, it's so disappointing not to receive anything!
okay so who's up for a swap then....
