I ♥ Christmas, especially the trees. How it is decorated and the meaningful ornaments. Each tree tells a story.

In this swap, you will have 10 partners. Send them a picture of your whole tree and a few pictures of select ornaments. If you have more than one tree in your home, feel free to send pictures of them too.

Feel free to write a little about your tree and the significance of the ornaments you have chosen. Remember to include your username and the name of the Swap in your e-mail for ratings!

Newbies with filled-out profiles are welcome!

Happy Holidays!

Thanks to my fellow Swappers for signing up for this Swap! I hope this Swap continues to grow! Please let me know if you have any suggestions for making this Swap better! In the past, some Swappers preferred snail mail as opposed to electronic mail. Let me know if any of you would like to do this. IMO, I think electronic mail is cheaper since pictures are involved - and you can have more partners and see more trees!

Since it's an electronic swap, I think you should move the last date to send to no more than 3 days from partners being assigned. Everyone should be able to sign on in at least three days time :-)

@Babsmomof5 3 days from sign-up deadline means Christmas day or Boxing Day... Not sure about you, but December 24th through 26th in my book are very busy days ;-) I think December 31st gives everyone a nice amount of time to send their e-mails without stress. Although I'll probably send the e-mail on the day that partners are assigned, if the send deadline were to be moved up to Christmas Day or Boxing Day, I'll have to drop out from the swap to avoid taking the risk of not meeting the deadline... and i'll miss out on all the beautiful trees :-s

Hi Babsmomof5 and roadhousette, I set the assigned-by date on Dec. 22 because I figured most people will have their Christmas trees/ decorations up by that day. I set the send-by date on Dec. 31st so that people will not feel pressured to mail their Swaps during Christmas when everyone is busy celebrating and spending time with their friends and families. This will cut back on late Swaps - and will give us something to do after the holidays and before we take down our trees/ decorations. I know some people decorate their trees on Christmas Eve, so this will allow those people to join as well. Of course, Swappers will also send their Swaps on the assigned-by date as well so that we can see trees before Christmas day :)

I have 20 Swappers watching this Swap. Y'all let me know if you have any questions/ concerns about the Swap. I can move the send-by date to later, if you are too busy to send during the week after Christmas. Or I can possibly bump-up the assigned-by date so that you can get the Swap done ahead of Christmas - but leave the send-by date where it is for those who put up the tree later. :) Just let me know if I can help!

@Schwallie I will join closer to the swap date, I can only join 5 at a time so I'm just watching for now :)

Schwallie 12/18/2014 #

@PookiePie1307 - That's fine! Looking forward to you joining! :)

Eager to get partners assigned ....

Schwallie 12/27/2014 #

Hi everyone! I am SO sorry that I haven't assigned partners yet. I just assigned them today! I hope that everyone enjoys this swap! Let me know if you need me to extend the deadline. I lost my job the week before Christmas and everything got a bit hectic with the holidays rolling in. I have been busier than I thought I would have been. I haven't been near my computer or the internet for a bit. I sincerely apologize. I hope that everyone has had a very Merry Christmas and I hope that you all have a great 2015! Thank you! Now let's see some trees! :)

Since you were so late on assigning partners I think it'd be only fair to extend the deadline by a couple of days at least. Sorry to hear about your job.

Schwallie 01/ 2/2015 #

@liveve308 I've extended the Swap deadline to Jan. 9th, which is next Friday. I hope that this helps everyone! Please let me know if any of you have any problems sending it out. Happy 2015 and thanks for joining!
