How does it work?  I’m so glad you asked!  If you’d like to play along, all you have to do is send one ornament to someone else and you’ll receive one in return.  Here’s how:

Step 1: Sign up!
Just fill out the quick form at the bottom of the post.  There are separate forms for US and International participants, so please be sure you fill out the correct form.  

Step 2: Get matched up.
I will contact you via email on Friday, November 8, and give you the following info: the name and address of your recipient, as well as her other responses on the form below.  US participants will be matched with fellow US participants, and international participants will receive international partners.  If you live in the US and would like an international partner {note that shipping costs will be higher}, please sign up on the international form and not the US form.  Do not sign up in both places unless you want two partners.

Step 3: Make or purchase an ornament.
Anything goes: it can be storebought, painted, crocheted, salt dough, paper crafted, kid-made…any kind of ornament you think your recipient would like based on her information.  You don’t have to bend over backwards to get the *perfect* ornament, but do try and be considerate {ie: don’t send a Disney ornament if she says she hates Mickey Mouse}. Just FYI, last year there were some issues with ornament breakage during shipping, which is always a bummer, so please think about using felt, wood, plastic, shatterproof, etc. instead of glass ornaments…or else package them reallllllly well, k?Step 4: Ship the ornament no later than Saturday, November 30!!!
You can ship it any way you like, and as early as you like, but please make sure you can commit to sending it by this date.  If a problem arises, let me know.  You may also want to include a little note about yourself to let your recipient know who you are!

Step 5: Open and enjoy the ornament you recieve {and thank your ornament sender}!

Step 6: {optional}  Tweet, instagram, or facebook share a photo of your ornament!  If you have a blog, you may also want to post about what you sent and/or received!

Ready to sign up?  Here you go!
