Christmas Ornament Exchange

To all my loyal followers......te-he (I've always wanted to say something like that)

Skip on over to my daughter's blog at Randomly Specific, and check out this great idea that she got from one of her favorite blogs.  It's for a Christmas ornament exchange....I know, I know, it's early, but hey....realistically---Christmas is just around the corner!!!!

Come on all you guys...we've been blogging back and forth...let's take it further and go to the next level...."snail mail". in the form of a nice little festive'll be fun!!!!

It's simple, here are her rules.......
  1. Leave a comment on the bottom of her post with your blog address (if you have one) and your e-mail.  *so, if you don't have a blog, just leave your name + email.
  2. You will have until OCT 31st to sign up, and then I will match everyone up with a buddy!  She will send out an e-mail that shows who is matched up with who. 
  3. It is your job then to e-mail your buddy, say hello, and get their mailing address.
  4. Once this is done.... comes the fun part!  Go out and buy a super cool Christmas ornament! (Pier 1 and Michaels have some really cool ones, for example!)  Price range $10-15.  Please don't over or underspend - it can be tempting, but stay within budget so it's fair across the board!
  5. Your deadline is to have your ornament in the mail by NOV 15th!  This way we will be sure everyone will get their surprise in time!
  6. When you get your ornament, take pictures and blog about it! Don't have a blog? Take a picture of it on your tree or somewhere in your house and e-mail it to the person who sent it to you and thank them :o)!

This will work best if lots of people participate..... so SPREAD THE WORD!

Rana is also adding a little bonus gift! It will be for a random participant ....more details to come on her blog later ;) 

  Now, sign up, spread the word, and shop for a super cute Christmas ornament!!

Maybe this will put you in the mood.....

Have a special pet??...tell your "ornament swap" partner and you may get something like this!!
My niece.Tonya, has several trees throughout her house to display all the ornaments her students have given her over the years.  I especially love this whimsical white tree with all black ornaments.  She can tell you the story behind each and every ornament on each of her trees ;o)

 Let's see where this eye rolling you guys!!!!!!




  1. Nooooooooooooo! I refuse to discuss Christmas and can't believe it's right around the corner, again. Bah humbug!

    (Can you tell the thought of the holidays stresses the poop outta me?)

    1. Ha ha----I hope I don't get on your nerves too much as it gets closer to the festive season(I won't say the "C" word). Any excuse to start early for me-----Luv Luv everything about it. I actually went to You Tube a few days ago to view a video that a work colleague's son made last year for "the season".

  2. What a great idea but unfortunately I think the postage costs to and from the UK would be prohibitive. I look forward to seeing all the different pictures.

    1. I know, wouldn't be practical at all for you----postage would cost far more than the ornament. At least you can stay tuned and see the results. It should be fun!!

  3. Thanks for posting this! Hopefully it's a hit!

  4. thanks for sharing.
