This swap was one of the most popular swaps last year and I just really enjoyed being part of it, so I thought we should do it again. The description is almost the same as last year, but with a few alterfications:

"Me: Hi! Nice to meet you, what's your name?

You: I'm Miss Stocking Stuffer

Me: Wow, what a name, what is that all about?

You: I got the name - obviously, 'cause I love Stuffing Stockings

Me: Ehh.."***

Sorry about that everybody, I just couldn't help but write down the imaginary conversation my head just made up, well on to swap details:

For this swap you will have 4 partners. You will send each of your 4 partners 6 stocking stuffers (which is really just things to stuff in the christmas stocking). The swap will be cancelled if less than 5 people sign up, as we all need 4 partners :-)

This is a total of 24 small presents. - You are not to send 25 since this is how we do it in Denmark and I'm the host and therefore I decide HA! ;-) Feel free to add extra presents though if you want to make sure your partner recieves enough :-p

There is no prize limit to the items but they must be new or handmade. (Or if sending eg. vintage fabric, let it be a nice quality). You are also welcome to do sendons of items you've recieved throughout the year but never had a use for as long as quality and condition is impecable. Look at your partners profile to be inspired and see if you can make them happy by fulfilling some wishlist items. If not, then I am pretty sure candies, christmassy items and any swapping related objects are always some great ideas.

Wrap each of the items up individually. It is important that you use the same type of wrapping paper on all the items you send so that your partner can keep track of which items are from you. You can also add sticky gifttags to the presents with your swap-bot name on to make them easier to identify.

Any questions, feel free to ask!

(If you are a guy you are welcome to be Mr. Stocking Stuffer :-p)

This will be the first Christmas with my new boyfriend (my late husband passed away in early 2010 so Christmas last year was rather painful). I'm really looking forward to starting new traditions with him and I think we're going to have to have stockings to stuff!

I think this swap will be a great way to get into the holiday spirit, great idea @Midnightshadow

I wish you a happy holiday @midwestknitgirl you really deserve it!

I am sending out to Tone in Norway today. The rest of my partners will have to wait untill I get back from my vacation in Turkey :-)

I'd love to get my rating from @kchristisen have any of her other partners received her rating yet? I mailed my package over a month ago and she won't respond to my PM or the messages I've left on your profile. Thanks for your help!
