2014 Craft Ornament Exchange Sign Up

Alrighty, guess I'll take the lead on this one again!
The sign-up by date is on November 5th with a mail by date of December 10th.  That should give everyone enough time for the ornaments to arrive and be put on trees (or wherever it ends up!) before the holiday. 

"Make an ornament or two to exchange with someone. Craft out of yarn, ribbon, paper, or whatever! Be sure to ask your elf questions so you can make sure to make something your person will be sure to enjoy. Have fun!"

Please PM me with your email address if you want to participate and I will send you an invitation.  Please be sure to put your Nest name somewhere in your elfster name so we know who you are!

Also, and I cannot stress this enough, if you are not planning on making and mailing an ornament, be kind and do not sign up.  It's fun to make and give, but it's also fun to receive...am I right??

  • Hey guys, I'm thinking of cancelling the exchange.  More people expressed interest than are actually signing up, and that does not make me confident that we wont have problems with people flaking out when it is time to exchange.  I just don't want to deal with that stress of messaging people over and over and people ignoring me again this year.

  • I just sent you my address, I'm in!
  • Ok, I am going to have to bow out of this exchange this year.  If someone else would like to run it, let me know and I'll help you set up a new exchange.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

  • Bummer! =( It sounds like a fun idea, but not much interest this year =(
  • Yeah, we only had 4
    :(
    And there is not enough communication on the boards to drum up some interest.

  • Thanks for trying!  I was excited for it!

    Be the change you want to see in the world!

  • Sorry!  Maybe we can drum up more traffic to the board this year and have a very awesome exchange next year!
