2017 Ornament Exchange

It’s that time of year…back by popular demand! The 6th Annual One Artsy Mama Ornament Exchange!

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! {now through November 10th}
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.
Erin, my trusty assistant, will email you no later than the 16th of November and give you the following info: the name and address of your recipient, as well as the 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 store bought, 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}.  We want to avoid 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?

*If you need some inspiration or would love some directions to make your own ornaments for the exchange this year, be sure to check out the blog archives or Amy’s E-book, Honestly Do-able:30+ Handmade Ornaments Anyone Can Create*

Step 4: Ship the ornament no later than December 1st!
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 receive {and thank the sender}!

Step 6: {optional}  Share a photo of your ornament on social media and/or in the One Artsy Mama Facebook group!  If you have a blog, you may also want to post about what you sent and/or received. When you share, use #OAMExchange so we can follow along and see.

Disclaimer: Amy and Erin are not responsible for any lost, broken, or unsent ornaments. We really want everyone to have a great experience, so please don’t sign up and commit if you are going to be unable to send something to your partner. Ready to sign up?  Here you go!
