Handmade Gift Exchange

I just signed up for this Handmade Gift Exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous. It sounds like so much fun!! You should sign up for it too. The more the merrier, right? She hosts a gift exchange twice a year, once in July and once in November. This time around, you have until Nov. 10th to sign up!!

I linked her blog above but you can also check out the rules below:


It's that time again! Twice a year I host a Handmade Gift Exchange here on Craftaholics Anonymous and its time sign up! I look forward to these exchanges for months. It's seriously is one of my fave things that I do with this blog. Such a fun way to meet other crafters AND have an excuse to be crafty :]

Since this exchange has grown quite a bit since I started it, I am gong to format it differently this time around in hopes to prevent some of the headaches we had last time. With this exchange, you will send your gift to the same person that sends you a gift. For ex: I make and send a gift to Jane Crafty and in return, Jane Crafty will make and send me a gift.

Want to see what participants have received in the past? Check out last Gift Exchange's linky party here.

Please read this entire post BEFORE you sign up! If you have any questions, PLEASE email me at before signing up. Wanna play? Here's how to be a part of the UNITED STATES Gift Exchange December 2010
  • If you commit to participate in this exchange, you will need to make one Handmade Gift for a fellow blogger and have it post marked by November 30, 2010. In return, you will receive one Handmade Gift from a fellow blogger in the mail some time in December.
  • Fill out the form below to officially sign up. Sign up will be open until November 10, 2010.
  • After sign up closes, I will personally email you with your "Gift Exchange Partner's" mailing address and email address.
  • Make a gift for your assigned partner. Need ideas? Check out my Tutorials.
  • Have your gift post marked no later than November 30, 2010. It is very important that you have your gift post marked by November 30. If you can get your handmade gift in the mail earlier, that's even better! 
  • Participating in this exchange means you will probably have to make a trip to the Post Office. Please take that into account when you're looking at your holiday schedule.
  • There is no skill level required. A handmade gift is always wonderful, no matter how technical it is! 
  • There is no price minimum on the handmade gift. If shipping costs are an issue, you can make a gift that is light weight and fits inside an envelope. 
  • I have no way of patrolling everyone's participation....but usually, people are honest and do their part. And with this new format, you will have your partner's info so you can help remind them as needed ;o)
