Ornament Exchange 2012

Get ready for Christmas Ornament Exchange 2012!!

Justine and I will start collecting names of everyone who wants to participate this year.  We will then assign partners, and you guys will buy a fun ornament and put it in the mail, and you'll receive a fun ornament in return! :)

I became great friends with some super lovely ladies through these Ornament Exchanges, so they are something I look forward to every year! Really, truly, Justine, Paige, and LW are women I met through these  exchanges and have sent met in person :)

Want to participate?! Great!! Here are the details!!

1-- You should probably be a follower of either my blog or Justine's blog so you can stay up to date with all the details and such, but it's not a requirement.    

2-- We'll be collecting sign ups starting today all the way until November 19, so help us get the word out! The more the merrier, right?  Grab our button, write a blog post about the exchange, tweet about it, Instagram about it, Facebook about it!  However you want to get the word out, do it!  Just make sure to direct them back to one of our blogs to sign up!  If you want to participate, just leave a comment on this post and make sure your email is connected to your account that you're commenting with, or include your email address in your comment.  Also, if you don't have a blog, feel free to participate, too!  Or you could start one... Blogging is super fun! :)

3--  I think we'll stick to just US and Canada (and maybe Military bases, there are special rates for shipping to military bases, I think?? Does anyone know for sure?) mailing addresses.  It just gets too expensive to have to ship internationally, I think. :( 

4-- Let's try and keep the package between $5-$15.  Nothing too expensive, I know money is tight a lot of times this time of year.  Check out etsy, pinterest, Hobby Lobby.  There are lots of cute and affordable Christmas Ornaments out there! :)  You could even throw in some other fun Christmas Treats if you want!

5--  Have your package in the mail by December 1st.  We'll make sure to get you your partner emails by Thanksgiving Day (November 22nd) at the latest.  That should give everyone just over a week to shop.  Feel free to email with your partner about what they do or don't like.  Or just stalk their blog.... ;)

6-- The week of December 10th, come back to Justine or my blog and we'll be hosting a link up so we can write a post about what we received, then link up so we can see what everyone else got! :)

7-- Please only sign up if you know you'll be able to participate!  It's always a bummer when people sign up to do fun things like this, and then their partner doesn't hold up their end of the deal.  

So, what are you waiting for??? SIGN UP! :)
