I sooo love Christmas. It's my favourite time of the year! All the decorations, & sparkley lights, & the yummy food... I just love the feeling in the air when Christmas is just around the bend! Ehe.

I made a box swap years ago similar to this, but I honestly don't have the money to do that big of one, this year.. So, I thought about this: How about a stocking swap? A full one, of course! :) Get a normal stocking from the Dollar Store, or where-ever, Wal-Mart works. :) I believe the stocking is a little over a foot long.. THAT size stocking, is what i'm reffering to! Check out your partners profile, & go out & get lots of little goodies for him/her, wrap them all up, & stuff that stocking full!! :D

I'm setting the price limit at $10 to $15. Don't go out & go broke buying for your partner, but do fill the stocking. :)

I WILL be reading profiles. And if you want to stay in this swap, please.. PLEASE, I beg of you! Fill out your profile!! 10 words is not filling it out!! Also, you need to have a good rating. i'll set it at 4.9.... No flaking, & unexplained 1's & 3's. Also, for safety purposes & to prevent flaking... you need atleast 5 package/craft swaps. Postcard, letter, & electronic swaps is not what this is about, so it won't count. No newbies either, I'm sorry about that. The last time I did this, i had to angel a huge box swap & it didnt even make it to her in time for Christmas, & I felt like a jerk for letting the person in the swap w/o any previous swaps!!

So, I'm NOT trying to be mean, or bossy sounding in the swap. I just don't have the money to angel a bunch of swaps, you know? So, I HAVE to make strict rules for this one!!

Well, I hope ya'll will join in on the fun! I'm making TWO of these swaps.. one for the USA, & one International! You can join one, or join both! Thanks for reading!!!

Does everything have to be store bought? Can anything be handmade?

jennifergordon 10/ 3/2011 #

I was wondering that too, or can we stick in some stuff from our own stash is it's in perfect shape. cause i am thinking it might get costly filling the stocking-more pricey then 10 or 15 dollars

I agree. I am a crafter and can make a lot nicer stuff at that price range than I could buy. Of course I could go out and buy a bunch of dollar store stuff, or I could spend that amount on supplementing my craft stash and making some really nice Christmas items. So it would be helpful to know if handmade items would be acceptable. Thanks!`

handmade items are very welcome in my book!! but, do check w/your partner. i've actually ran into some swappers on here that didn't enjoy handmade things!! =O eek!! so, yes. handmade stuff is very welcome, but check your partners profile first. :) if any of you are MY partner, i'd love handmade goodies!! :D

Is this swap Sender;s Choice?

Hmmm I think I'm going to do this one but I was wondering if you would angel again this year? I have just heard so much about flakers joining the larger public christmas package swaps I am afraid of getting flaked on a swap like this!

Also yess, I think handmade items are great! Even some of the things being destashed/gently used would be ok as far as I am concerned.

Is it possible I have been flaked on by the swap hostess? Not marked sent almost a week and a half after send by date, no response to message, hasn't been online in a week. I am worried...
