cup of christmas joy swap!

Well, I wasnt going too, I had thought about it and thought about it and decided not too.. but then, someone twisted my arm.. and I am weak.... then the more I thought about it, the more fun it sounded!
SO with all that said, let me introduce to you a new swap.
Each participant will receive one partner to prepare a giftie for. YOu should find out from your partner if they are a tea drinker, or coffee drinker.. or maybe a hotchoc drinker and what kind of a cup do they prefer.. mug or teacup? I personally love a pretty teacup and saucer, I think tea tastes so much better in them!
Then, Purchase and fill up a special mug or teacup with neat christmasy stuff! You may purchase what ever you want to put into your package, but you have to create something special to go in your cup as well, maybe a christmas mouse, bear, ornament, snowman.. what ever.. The more I think about doing this the more excited I get! You could also throw in special coffees, or teas.. little cookies and candies, candles, christmas hankies.. charms.. jewelry.. whatever strikes your fancy! It doesnt all have to fit into your cup, you may overflow into your box!
This swap needs to be short and sweet because Christmas is so near and this is a last minute swap!
Sign ups are from now through thanksgiving day. I will email everyone their partner on friday the 26th and I would like everyone to mail out to their partners ONTIME by Dec 10th!
to sign up, email me your name, address and blog address to
If for some reason people are not feeling up to adding something else to their already busy holidays and I dont get at least 10 people to play, then I will let you know and will cancel this one.. like I said it is a last minute thing. but could be a lot of fun!

OK.. I'll be waiting to hear from yous.
Oh and, please take the button and post to your blog, even if your not doing the swap to help spread the word.
thanks all..
now i'm off to work in santas bear land!

Good morning Viv! What a fun swap, I hope you get lots to join in! Gee, I wish I lived closer to you so you could teach me how to needle felt, your creations are AMAZING! I also wanted to tell you I adored your apron pocket, they are all even cuter in person. Do you mind if I ask who makes the paper you used? Have a wonderful weekend, xxoo Nan

Such a cute idea!
I haven't done a one on one swap recently, having been "burned" a while ago. Since then I prefer those where everyone sends their items to the swap hostess.
Of course, swamped here at this time too, but still I can't resist if you'll let me play even though I don't have a blog.
Will email you.
