It’s that time of year again…

The Curious Kiwi here – reporting in from NZ 😉 I hope you guys don’t mind me hi-jacking the blog for a bit but I thought this might be a cool idea for a BSC meet in November – making a Christmas decoration for a swap partner. Just an idea…who knows, one of you might get me and I might get one of you, hehe xx

I have signed up for the New Zealand Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap.

I signed up for the first time last year and enjoyed getting a surprise so much that I have decided to do it again.

Actually this year, now that life is more normal and settled for a change, I am considering making all my family home-made gifts. It might just be an ornament each or something more substantial depending on each person but I am starting to gather ideas, some I might be able to share (certain family members do blog-stalk me so I have to be careful, isn’t that right SIL-with-itchy-feet?)

Anyway, just a quick post to explain how it all works:

You sign up on the NZ Handmade page here, time is ticking, you have until October 28th. Then you get sent a swap partner and create your gorgeous ornament (plus handmade card) and post it away to them by November 30th – heaps of time! 😉 They also post lots of ideas and tutorial links on the NZ Handmade page.

If you are interested, this is my swap from last year, pretty cool huh?

It’s open to all crafty bloggers all over the world so how about you join me? Maybe we’ll get each other!
