Yaaaa! Christmas is coming! I love Christmas! I would like to host a fun way to count down, so here it goes! ;)

This swap is for those who like the advent calendar idea, but want cheaper postage. If you love small or miniature things too-this is the swap for you! Good things come in small packages...right? You will have 4 partners. You send each partner 6 small wrapped gifts. The size requirements are that each item, when wrapped, needs to be no bigger than 2 X 2 inches. Items can be new or something you have saved in great condition, or handmade. This is not meant to be an expensive swap. For example-you can send some inchies, brads, buttons, mini figurines, charms, beads, candy, embellishments, mini books, altered matchboxes etc. Use your best judgment in how many items to include as one. I would say 4-5 brads could equal one item, 1 charm about the size of a coin or 2 smaller ones could be an item etc. These are supposed to be cute little packages with a little surprise inside. This is so everyone can participate!. In return you will receive 24 items (your 4 partners sending you 6 items each) You will have a small gift to open every day until Christmas, starting on December 1st!

I am not going to set a value on this swap, just please remember this is a time of the year that is special, so let's try not to let our partners down. It should not be too expensive since all items are tiny! ;) These items are sender's choice, but should be profile based. Only send chocolate if they live in an area that doesn't have warm weather during this time of year (pm your partner if unsure) and please don't send items that won't last until December.

This swap is open to anyone with a 4.9 rating or higher. No recent 1's or 3's as this is a time sensitive holiday themed swap. If you don't meet these requirements I will ban. Please pm me if you think I should make an exception or if you are a newbie. You also need a profile that is filled out with likes/dislikes or a wishlist so that your partner has something to go from. Remember to rate at least a 5 when you get your packages so that your partner knows you received it. Ratings may be changed in December as gifts are opened. Thank you and happy giving :)

Thank you partners! I've lost track of which packages are from whom...any leftover ones go into my stocking, LOL! We are several days behind due to vacation...

Thank You for the mini 12 pack of gift cards! Richard colored one for his teacher and Ahna did one for her Nana while we read the Advent reading for today...

For all my partners, I am opening one per day starting December 1st-unfortunately I had two flakers, so I only go the 12th instead of Christmas Eve, but I will be leaving comments after that date :) For those that were also flaked on, I am so sorry, everyone had good ratings when we started this. I am looking for angels in a group I am in, but you have to rate a 1 before they will angel.

Thank you to CariahCreates for sending me a package since I was also flaked on. Thank you Cari for being an angel.... and thanks for the matchbox... Hopefully next time, no one will get flaked on.. I still ended up some days short but I am perfectly ok with that.... Smile.. Merry Christmas everyone

FYI, my flaker was A Sara Loquist (CraftySaraJane)
