Here is the list of partners for this year's Twelve Days Of Christmas swap.
Once you've seen who you've been paired with, can you please make contact with your swap partner either by email or by commenting on their blog. You will need to exchange addresses but please make sure this is done by email, I don't like seeing people's personal details posted on blogs. It would also be helpful if you could leave me a comment letting me know that you've seen this post and that you've made contact with your swap partner.
We've had another great response to the swap, twenty six people including myself, which is exactly the same as last year. Some people who took part last year are taking part again this year and we have some new people added to the mix this year too, which is lovely. There'll be thirteen swaps taking place and here are your partners:-
Sally A from Crafty Northerner - Michelle from Michelle's Make Or Bake
April from Paper Lily Leaf - Hazel from World Of Joy
Tammy from My Journey - Ellie from Feltabulous
Amy from Love Made My Home - Mary from Frugally Challenged
Tracy from Mad About Bags And So Much More......... - Pat from Lilly My Cat
Kim from This Happy Homemade Life - Jo from Through The Keyhole (me)
Marlene from Poppy Patchwork - Debbie from Fairy Bluebell's Craft Adventure
Clicky Needles (Sorry, I don't know your name) - Marlene from Simple Living
Tanya from Allotments 4 You - Kimberley from Creative Chaos
Barbara from Busy Busy Bee Jay - Selma from Eclectic Home And Life
Rebecca from Writing, Fatshion, Me - Jules from A Hidden Jem
Jo from Angel Jem's City Cottage - Cheryl from My Little Piece Of England
Jo from A Whole Plot Of Love- Maggie from Maggie, A Blackcountry Wench
You've now got until the beginning of December to get your gifts together. They should be things you'd be happy to receive yourself and you may choose to make some of the gifts if you so wish.
I'm sure you'll have no trouble choosing gifts for your swap partner but you can have a look at The Twelve Days Of Christmas post which I wrote a couple of years ago which shows the gifts I received from Lisa, or my Twelve Days Of Christmas Reveal post which shows the things I sent and received last year if you get stuck and need some ideas. Some people may enjoy receiving things such as stationery, crafting supplies, books, ornaments, jewellery, smellies, candles, edibles and if your partner lives in a different country from yourself, they may enjoy receiving things they wouldn't be able to get in their own country. That's just a few ideas for you but do take a look at their blogs and see what sort of things they like or enjoy doing.
Each gift should cost a maximum of £2, it's not about the cost, it's about gifting things which your partner will like.
Your parcel should contain twelve gifts wrapped individually so that your swap partner is able to open one on each of the twelve days of Christmas, and should be posted by the 3rd of December 2016. Those who are swapping with partners from other countries should check the last posting dates to ensure their parcel will arrive in time for Christmas.
Only one gift should be opened per day starting on the 25th of December 2016 through to the 5th of January 2017.
It would be a nice idea to show the gifts you receive on your blog in January.
If anyone is unsure about anything or has any problems, don't hesitate to get in touch. You can find my email address in my profile, just click on my name on the About Me section in the sidebar. Above all, have fun with this swap, afterall, that's what it's all about.
I just want to mention that I've put my name down to join in with Sheila's #stitchingsanta 2016 swap over on her Sewchet blog. I took part in this swap last year and it's a great one for any knitters, crocheters or sewers out there. Do go and take a look and see if you fancy joining in.
