It's Sign Up......For the 2016 Christmas in July Swap

It's time to sign up for the 2016 Christmas in July Swap

Please leave a comment on this post only  if you are interested in participating this year.

If you are new to me, please make sure you provide a way for me to contact you - either through email, your blog or via your comment.  I will need your details, too - to save time - please email me at with your full name, making address, email and blog address.

Here are the rules:

Christmas in July will consist of swapping three handmade itemwith a secret partner (ssshhhhh!!)
Here's a list of three possible items:

C......Candy Cane ...or Candle.....or Christ (nativity)
H.....Holly....or Heart.....or Helpers (Elves)
I.....Inspirational Word/s
S.....Santa....or Stocking.....or Snowflake/s
T.....Tree....or Three Wise Men
M.....Mouse.....or Mistletoe....or Mrs. Santa Claus
A.....Angel.....or Acorn
S.....Snowman.....or Star

Remember - it can be any THREE handmade items on the list.....but they MUST be on the list - and they cannot be purchased. Here are some examples to get your creative juices flowing: a mug rug decorated with mistletoe or holly.....or an ornament with an inspirational word.....or a star get the idea.

All three gifts must be mailed no later than July 5th - this will (hopefully) allow for the parcels to wing their way around the globe in time for the GRAND OPENING of your gifts on JULY 25th.

Please just put a return address on the outside of the parcel - do not include your name....this will build the anticipation.....and please, please remember to put your name and email address on the INSIDE so your swap partner can send you a 'thank you'.

I am running this swap for everyone around the world - EXCEPT - Australia and New Zealand. If you live in these countries, please contact Cheryl here....we are running "Sister Swaps"....

Registration for this swap ends May 14th. 

We will have a Link Up Party on July 26th so everyone can see what our Secret Swap Partners have sent us.

Doesn't this sound like FUN??? I look forward to hearing from you all.
