Join in a SaNtA SaCk SwaP

Christmas sounds so far away at the moment BUT it really is just around the corner. This swap is all about YoU having a nice little bag sack of goodies to open on December 25th... just like Santa himself had delivered them. Sound GooD ?  Then join up by leaving a comment on this post and I'll email you details, rules and a questionaire to fill out. That way your partner will know a few things about you, your likes and dislikes with any colour preferences etc. Of course stalking reading your partners blog or chatting to each other would help too!
Basically this is how it will work: The first month-make a sack and wrap 2 small gifts and send them off to your partner who will store the gifts in the sack...unopened and no ToUcHiNg or SqUeeZinG..(well perhaps just a wee one).. then every month after that, send 2 or more gifts to the same partner and she places them into the sack once again unopened! Then for December we will add a special something (perhaps a Candle Mat, Tree skirt or Runner) as the finale'. The gifts should retail approx $5.00 - $10.00 each month (not a financial burden that way) or handmade items are GrEaT and I'll keep swap sisters in the same country for postal consideration. The first month's gifts together with the SACK must be posted by July 1st. This is a six (6) month commitment so please only join in if you will complete it. Your partners HeArT is at stake.. you'll break it if you don't go the distance!
Sign up will close on April 30th 2011.

Be sure to add the button to your blog (link it here) .... let's not keep the FuN to ourselves... spread the word!

Also for a great give away go to Raggedy Station blog and enter to win these....
The giveaway is to celebrate a new beginning...A ShOp... so why not go visit.

How good would these fabrics look made into a quilt for yours truly!
Just what I had in mind!
GooD LuCk everyone......

Hi Cheryl,

Would love to join your lovely Christmas Swap. There is only one problem I will be away for 6 weeks starting in July.

I will make the first part of the swap before I go.
As long as swap sister knows that I am still working hard on the swap while I am away. I could catch up when I am back.

What do you think?

I've been giving this one a lot of thought, and I'm IN! I already have a list of possible gifts. I usually don't mind shipping internationally, but I'm glad this one will be staying in-country.
