Christmas in July Swap Opens Today - HO! HO! HO!

Once again, I'm teaming up with the lovely Cheryll from Gone Stitchin' for a Christmas in July Swap.

Christmas in July will consist of swapping 3 (three) handmade items with a SECRET partner... sshhh.
Yes ~ a secret... at Christmas (in July)... well I never....
Cheryll composed a list from which to choose the items.
I think it's varied enough for everyone to find something.
Remember it can be ANY 3 items from the list... but they have to be ON the list. What you do with them is up to YOU... but ALL 3 must be handmade and NOT purchased!
For example... a candle mat with holly on it... OR... a mouse on a bag... OR... an angel tree ornie... you get the idea I'm sure...

C...  Candy Cane OR Candle OR Christ (nativity)
H...  Holly OR Heart OR Helpers (Elves)
R...  Reindeer
I...    Inspirational word/s
S...  Santa OR Stocking OR Snow Flake/s
T...  Tree OR Three wise men
M... Mouse OR Mistletoe OR Mrs.Claus
A...  Angel OR Acorn
S...  Snowman OR Star

All 3 (three) gifts MUST be mailed ON JULY 10th ...
however for those mailing across the oceans...allow more time by mailing ON JULY 5th.
Gifts should remain unopened UNTIL JULY 25th... this will test us I'm sure

Please just put a return address on the outside...with NO NAME showing... keeping us guessing until the very end... but remember to put your name & email address inside.

Registration Opens... MAY 1st . ...
by leaving a comment on this Christmas in July blog May post ONLY. 
Registration Closes on... MAY 07  

This swap is  open to everyone world-wide... & you must be prepared to send across the oceans, if needed.
There will have a link up party on July 26th so we can show off our gifts.
THIS SHOULD BE FUN don't you think?

In 2014 we had 10 elves…..
In 2015 we had…..????
