It is that time of year, Christmas Stocking Swap.

Thank all of you so much. I am excited to hostess as this swap is so fun.

Okay will use her same guidelines as they are great.
This are just guidelines and examples, use your imagination and do what feels right.
Here is Everything you need to know:

Make or Purchase a Christmas Stocking Approximately

2. Try to make this Extra Special by adding some decoration on it.
Keep in mind how hard this year has been difficult on all of us!

3. All gifts must be either Christmas Wrapped or at least wrapped in
Tissue Paper!

4. You must purchase or make at least 12 Gifts to Stuff your Stocking with.
4 of these gifts must be off your partner's personal list.

5. Everyone will make a list of things you collect, love, or would like to get.

6. The signs ups will go from now until November 29. Partners posted Nov 30.

7. Then The send out date is any day during the first week of December!


8. When you sign up you will write a list of things you collect, love, or desire.
Please list your Favorite Color, If you want Religious or Traditional Gifts or
A Mix of Both! Do you have pierced ears? Do you wear Jewelry or Not.
Do you drink coffee, tea, or both. Do you like Sweets? What kind of Choc. do
you like?

9. Or do you want to leave everything up to your partner and be Surprised!

10. The LAST Thing you Need to Know is that I do NOT Want you to sign up
unless you plan to FOLLOW THROUGH with this Swap 100%.
I do not want anyone to be disappointed at Christmas.

Okay, Ladies Let The JOY Begin...sign-up and make your lists at the bottom of your

Well, I'm not sure if I will be on the "naughty" or "nice" list, but I'll take a chance and play. This was such a delightful swap last year, how can I resist. I'll have to sit down with a nice cup of tea and write out my wish list. Thank you Debbie for stepping up to fill in for Peggy. I know we are all pulling for her through some stressful times.
hugs,
jean

Debbie, love this swap!
My list:
No chocolate, I drink decaf or herbal tea, I don't wear jewelry.
I collect snowmen. I'm more traditional, don't do Santa just mostly winter things. I love fuzzy socks, ribbon candy, books about Christmas, I enjoy writing letters, reading, embroidery and puzzles.
I forgot about the tin of hard candies Debbie! I love those too!
I decorate prim and love ravens or crows. (We have lots of both of those here)

I dream of this swap all year! Sign me up!

I'd love any theme stocking.
I'm drawn to forest green and purple, but all colors are good.
I collect glittery costume jewelry pins, anything with a dachshund or hummingbird.
Love dark or milk chocolate, with almonds, tea, chai, or cappuccino coffees.
Floral scented soap, lotion or wax melts.
I write and sew a lot, stationery or note cards, or sewing supplies will come in handy.
Socks or seeds for next year's garden.
Any of your local specialties.

I haven’t done this in a few years so please sign me up. Ho, Ho, Ho, Santa will be here soon!! What do I like? Anything handmade, anything old timey , homemade jams or jelly, soaps, primitive style anything. I am not a collector of Christmas trinkets as I have collected so much of that over the years.
I do love anything with Crows as I have a family that visits me daily in my backyard. Whoever draws my name, please keep it very simple as I really love just the basic kinds of items. Think little house on the prairie style or Christmas in the Great Depression of the 1930s.

Well, I guess I need to get my list up here. Actually, it's pretty simple . . .

Love all colors but probably lean to jewel tones
Adore surprises
Don't wear jewelry
Prefer Traditional or Avant guarde over religious theme
Drink both coffee, tea and other things too
Consider chocolate to be one of the major food groups
Vintage anything
Handmade over store bought any time
Principal activities are reading on my Kindle, writing, surfing the web, mail art, machine embroidery and other sewing projects
Between handicap issues and COVID, I'm pretty much housebound, so my world revolves around working in the studio and on the computer

Time to dive into this special swap. Thank You Debbie for taking over for Peggy this year.

I prefer hand crafted over boughten
I love a good cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
I collect vintage post cards
I burn candles every day, preferring fresh nature scents
Peppermint candies are a favorite of mine
I prefer vintage or traditional christmas
Simple items are what makes me happy, a good book, a beautiful ball of yarn, a handwritten letter, if it comes from the heart it is perfect.



A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

What better time to join up for a swap after not doing one for oh so long!?!? Please sign me up - I love this one!!!! And I have not done it for years!!!

We do not generally decorate with Santa, but I love nativities, nutcrackers, snowmen, and gingerbread houses.
I cannot have dairy - so I enjoy dairy free chocolate, dairy free hot chocolate, and hot tea. There is also an extreme peanut allergy in the house, so please no peanuts!
I collect Willow Tree Figurines and ornaments.
I have pierced ears.
My favorite color is blue.
I love to craft, though I don't seem to have much time, to cook and bake, to sew, and to read.
