.... it's cold enough to be winter and I've already started buying Christmas presents....oh stop judging me, you are only feeling bad that you haven't got organised yet!
(Why not get some CMT Christmas cards as September is CMT Awareness Month)
Anyway that made me think, long ago I was a member of a chat room and we sometimes did silly swaps (in real life! actual things, through the post!) and I've come to love twitter and blogging so much I wondered if it would work here too. Being in the middle of a global financial meltdown I realise no one has much money but something small and cheap to post would be a ray of sunshine in a gloomy world wouldn't it! Something like...
A Handmade Christmas Tree Decoration! We could all do that, anything from a picture we drew and laminated, to an elaborated felt sewn reindeer, with anything in between. Glitter covered pine cones, painted wooden stars, Festive Fimo Father Christmas, pipe cleaner shapes with beads, well you get the idea. Something lovingly made but not necessarily expensive (though diamond encrusted salt dough gingerbread men are fine too) and something small and easy to post...
We could do that right? and if we start now we have 104 days to do it.
So if you would like to send a decoration (and receive one) you can sign up below.
You will need to commit to doing it (no slackers - no backing out) you will need to be prepared to give me your address (Contact me here) and tell me if you are prepared to send out of your country or locally only.
All decorations to be finished and posted by 1st December 2011
Plenty of ideas to get you started here and all over the internet. So what's stopping you?
I don't think my blog is so popular that I need to set a limit! but just in case - I'll restrict it to first 20 people. Not sure I could cope with organisng more. I expect about 5 of us will play! LOL
