It happened last night…I received an email if we were coordinating a 2011 Christmas Ornament Exchange. I thought about it last week and my week flew away from us, then I thought, you know what, let’s do it! We had so much fun last year exchanging Christmas ornaments. This year we will have short RSVP deadline…December 2.
The idea is that families make Christmas ornaments for other families and exchange them during the holiday season. Your family would be signing up as a family where you make the same number of ornaments that you send. So for example, if you have four people in your family, then you would make four ornaments total. These four ornaments though would be going to four different people, and in return, you will be receiving four ornaments back from four different people (receiving four packages total) with the idea that every ornament would be different. If you had one or even two people in your family unit, then you would receive one or two ornaments back.
Please refrain from any commercial look-a-likes.
Ornaments would need to be mailed on, or before, Friday, December 9, 2011 to make sure they arrive in time to your assigned family.
If you are interested in participating, please RSVP by midnight on December 2, 2011.
To sign up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
1) Your first and last name.
2) Your shipping/mailing address.
3) The number of ornaments that you will be exchanging.
4) Please share with me if you would be interested shipping internationally.
You will receive Christmas ornament swap partner addresses by email between on December 3-4, 2011.
