Here is how it will work:
The theme for this swap is Christmas in July...

Then once sign up closes on June 30th 2011, Amy will pair all of our participants up and send emails out to everyone letting you know who your swap partners are.
Then you make and send a gift to your partner, who in return, will make and send you something.
This swap is an international swap, so if you would rather swap locally in Australia please let me know when sigining up.
Please read this entire post BEFORE you sign up!
If you have any questions, PLEASE email Amy at before signing up.
  • If you commit to participate in this exchange, you will need to make one Handmade item for a fellow swap participant and post it before the 1st of August 2011. In return, you will receive one Handmade Gift from a fellow crafter in the mail.
