      ***A huge thank you to all of you who participated in the third annual Swirly Holiday Swap. Not only were your projects so, so beautiful, but it was such a pleasure to see, feel and examine all of your work up close. So I'm thanking you not only for the joy in receiving, but in the inspiration that you've all spread around!!!! (Hoping to see all of you back here next year!!!!)

      For the past two years, we’ve had a holiday swap: an exchange of cards that was expanded last year to include tags and ATCs.
      They’ve been a huge success; I and all of the others who have participated treasure the gorgeous handmade creations that we’ve received in our mailboxes.

      For those who’ve never participated, here’s how it works:

      If you want to participate, please let me know in this thread.

      As soon as you’ve signed up, PM me with your email and your full mailing address.

      We’ll take signups through November 11. This will give you all plenty of time to make your cards/tags/ATCs.

      As I receive your information, I’ll put it all together and email each participant a full list of names and addresses.

      You will be expected to make and send a card to everyone who signs up. I can’t give you a mailing deadline, but please remember that we do want to make sure that our cards make to the recipients in time for the holidays.

      A few of you (and one DH) have expressed conces about the number of cards that you're committing to.

      While it's impossible to tell how many will sign up here, judging from the past two swaps, we're looking at around 12 – 15. Now, that is NOT a firm number; IF hoards of you end up deciding to join, I can always randomly assign a limited number to everyone. (I'd love feedback on that, please.)
      BTW, I did make a lot of cards for the past several years to send out to family and friends along with those that I sent our for the swap. I discovered very early on that the trick is assembly line: come up with 4 – 5 designs and make lots of each. I ended up with some really nice cards and did it all in under a week.

        Going to the mail box was so much fun last year. For sure I want to do it again! Thanks Peggy.

                  Seriously- I just don't make that many Xmas layouts, and I have a whole 12X12 Iris container filled with paper, and another one filled with embellishments. And, we have the Christmas kit coming in December, so I need to make a dent in it. My goal is to hopefully reduce my xmas stash to one container, so get prepared to receive a gaudy card from me! Or tag.

                      Ditto with the tub. I love Christmas, but I don't do many layouts either. The way I see it, we have a good head start, right?

                                No they don't Debbie. Most of us just made one version last year, to send to everyone.
