12 Days of Alteredmas

The basics: Send to your partner 12 individually wrapped items.

Items: At least 6 have to be something you altered. Your choice, anything from an atc to a journal and all that falls inbetween, use your imagination... can be a doll, stocking, a tag, a tin, a shrine, a hat, an apron, a bowl, a book, a tree, a snowman, a game piece, a coaster, a postcard, an ornament, etc. The catch, no duplicates. Meaning you can't send more than one of the same thing, has to be at least six different items.

The other 6 packages should be altering supplies. Such as markers, buttons, collage papers, glitter, embellishments, ephemera, paint, glue, charms, ribbons, stamps, photos, game pieces, jewels, beads, etc. Again use your imagination, be generous, a little baggie of buttons vs. 1 button, you get the idea?

This is a time consuming swap, but you will have plenty of time to put together a great package for your partner. Plan accordingly. This isnt a profile swap, but if your like me, I always look at my partners profile and get inspired and try to base it on things they like or the style, color, etc.

Please wrap and number your items 1 thru 12 (alternating between #1 being a altered item and #2 being a altered supply and so on). We will be opening them on the days as a group and can post about them there as well as share pictures. We will all know our packages have been received and can rate when we are done opening them

I will be extremely discretionary in regards to whom will be allowed to participate due to the nature of this swap.

what a lovely idea! so do we start opening on christmas day?

pootle 10/28/2009 #

and I assume it doesn't matter which order we number the items, ie altered thing or altering thing?

MamaD 11/ 1/2009 #

No, I think you can order them in whichever order you'd like @pootle

MamaD 11/ 1/2009 #

OH, and no, I believe you would begin opening them on December 14.

pootle 11/ 1/2009 #
