Exchange was a wonderful success. Everyone received their stockings and all are happy. Thank you all for participating. It was fun.
Merry Christmas to all
Jan


Closed.

I also needed to remind everyone that you need to add some goodies in the stocking

If You are not a member of Daves Garden, but still want to join in the fun you can let me know here.

You can use either a purchased pre made stocking and then decorate it to your exchange partners theme or make one yourself.

When you decide to join in please let me know your decorating theme. All stocking need to be at least 14" long from Cuff to toe.
Hand made is preferable but many can't sew and I would still like to see everyone have a chance to join in the fun.

Names will be drawn on the 10th of November so you need to sign up now.
Just leave me you name and theme and I will get your mailing address later.

http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1285105/
All stocking need to be mailed out by the 5th of December due to over whelming increase in mail to the USPS.

Come on folks and join in the fun. Just let me know here that you want to join in. ']
If for some reason you are unable to complete your exchange I need to have plenty of time to make another one myself.

Ho HO HO Lets have some fun.

Don't forget to stuff the stockings. No one likes an empty stocking unless they've been naughty then they will expect it or at least that lump of coal.

Good morning ladies, just wanted to see how everyone is coming with their stockings. The mailing date is the 5th so just wanted to touch base with you all and make sure that everyone is on schedule. Please let me know if there is a problem. Thanks for joining in and being a part of the exchange.
