2011 :: Handmade Holiday Ornament Exchange


I’m excited to announce that registration is OPEN for the 4th Annual Handmade Holiday Ornament Exchange!

Collecting and making new Ornaments is one of my favorite parts of the Holiday Season. And coordinating this Exchange has started to become a really fun part of my holiday tradition for the last four years. Who doesn’t love getting brown paper packages tied up with string in the mail, especially during the holiday?!

This will be my fourth year hosting this Exchange and I’m switching things up a bit and trying something new this year. The Ornament Exchange will now be housed on a PRIVATE  Blu Penny Forum, exclusive for Ornament Makers. The registration fee to participate in this years Exchange is $10 and you’ll have until midnight on Friday, November 25th to sign up or until the group maxes out. Whichever comes first. So don’t dillydally, it filled up really fast last year :-) All the DETAILS you need to know are  HERE.

And those of you that are overachiever’s and want to make and receive more ornaments, have the option to register for more than one group.
