This year, in an effort to encourage creating and purchasing Handmade gifts, I’ve decided to host a Handmade Christmas Gift Exchange.
Over the years, I’ve made and received many beautiful, unique gifts around Christmas. From ornaments to framed needleworks, I have always been extraordinarily touched by the thoughtfulness and time that goes into a personal, handcrafted gift. I encourage you this year to be personal with your gift giving. If it’s coming from the heart, make it with your hands – whenever possible.
If you choose to participate, I will ask you for three things. Your favorite color, your favorite textile (this includes all fiber based products including canvas, papers and fabrics), and your favorite season. This will help me partner you with someone, as well as help that person send you a gift that you will treasure.
Would you like to join in? Here are the guidelines:
- Gifts should be handmade by you, or a handmade item can be purchased on Etsy or purchased at a craft fair, as long as you’re certain the item is handmade. Maximum gift/supply cost should be $20, not including shipping.
- Leave a comment that you would like to participate no later than November 30th.
- Plan to ship gifts no later than December 14, this gives you two weeks to create or purchase a handmade item.
I will accept participants through November 30th, then match people together and send everyone their partners information by December 5th.
That’s it! Please feel free to grab my badge and put it on your blog, the more the merrier!!
