1st annual Handmade Gift Exchange …

I am not sure about you but I love gifts.
I love giving gifts and I love receiving gifts.
I thought having a gift exchange would help satisfy both of my desires!
Would you join me?

It’ll be fun and think of the great handmade gifts you will receive.

Here is how to join:

Sign up to participate by November 10th. Registration is now open. To sign up, send an email to chrissy@simply-created.net subject –Gift exchange. In the email, include:
a. First + Last Name
b. Mailing Address
c. Email Address
d. Blog/Website/Facebook Page  (if applicable)
HOW IT WORKS: The details of your assigned exchange partner will be emailed to you by November 10th. Send one handmade gift to your lovely exchange partner. Send out and give each of the gifts by November 30th.
If you have any questions, PLEASE email me at chrissy@simply-creted.net before signing up.
there are 2 different exchanges: United States and International. you must live in the United States for the USA exchange. If you live outside the USA, please sign up for the International Exchange. International participants will be paired with international participants only
  • If you chose to participate in this exchange, you will need to make a Handmade Gift for your partner and have it post marked by Wednesday November 30, 2011. In return, you will receive a Handmade Gift from your partner in the mail. Mailing your gift early makes you kind of special and really cool in my book!
  • Email me your contact information no later than November 10th.
  • I will email you with your Exchange Partner’s mailing and email address by November 10th  
  • Once you acquire your partner’s info, please send your partner an email to introduce yourself. Make sure to include things like: your favorite color, what type of decorating you like, your current obsessions, your blog address,
  • Make a thoughtful gift for your partner.
  • If you have a handmade shop please do not just chose an item already created for your partner. Make sure to find out what your partner likes and create something just for them
  • Take pictures of the spectacular gift you make! I am going to create a linky party to share your gift. I will also be spotlights your gifts. Please link up both the gift you made and the gift you received.
  • The linky party will start on November 20. I created a Flickr group for those without blogs to upload their gift pictures.
If you are unable to complete your gift please contact me ASAP. I know that things come up and life gets in the way. I just want to make sure your partner receives a gift. Thanks again!
