Number of swap partners:1

You will have one partner to make one ornament (Not necessarily Christmas). This will be the first in a series. Next I am thinking of day of the dead..etc.... But for this swap FRIDA KHALO ONLY. You will send a 3x3 or larger home made ornament. Store bought would be ok, but I think home made would be excellent. I will open up to international. As it doesnt have to weigh too much. . Don't forget the loop or hanger to hang it from. it can be felt, decopauge, knitted, painted, anything, creativity is key!! Quality made items will earn hearts, but extras are nice too.

If you go to flickr and put in frida ornament.. you will see hundreds of great ideas for this ornament swap!

The next swap will be a day of the dead, maybe a shrine after that.. but if you have any suggestions for future ornaments i am open to suggestions! feel free to email me or put in comments below. You are not obligated to future ornies.. those will be listed in thier own swaps later. :D You pick and choose which you would like to do as they come along!

Swap requirements: Not a swap open to newbies. You must have completed 10 swaps and have been rated, 4.8 or higher and no recent no-sends. Please, if you don't really have the time, you've already signed up for a bunch of swaps, or lack the know how to make such an item don't sign up. I will check before assigning partners and ban anyone who has slipped in ratings or is posting on their profile that they will late in sending for any reason.

edited to add: i had a question about it being a little shorter than 3" wide, yes its acceptable as long as it is a little longer than 3" long. Hope that makes sense. Just make it a nice one and i am sure swap partner will love it :O

I will assign partners in 2 weeks, but feel free to start ornie now and have it ready to go. I will give two weeks after that to have it sent out.

I hope this is the beginning to a great collection of ornaments, good friends and a great time! Thanks all~!

The picture above was my inspiration for this swap: one of a few anyway. It is NOT my picture, only used as reference. Hope this sparks some ideas!!

I'm putting this on my watchlist for now. I would really love to do this, but I have got a lot of fairly intensive swaps to get done and I want to make sure I have time to do it. Would love to do the Day of the Dead one too. :D

i think this is a fabulous swap. one suggestion, if you're going to host it again in other themes, would you start an email list of those interested so you can email a heads up to them? i am going to do that with people who enjoy my swaps and want to sign up again...just a suggestion... i gotta clear some out and i'm signing up asap.

You could do solstice or Equinox ornaments/projects ...Full moon projects or Sacred Place objects. Like Sedona, Pyramids, Stonehenge. Just rattling on. Or famous women like Mother Theresa, Our Lady of Guadalupe.
