Christmas in July Swap!

We are all familiar with the Christmas in July sales and events....so I thought it would be fun to have a

Christmas in July Swap!

I'm getting a bit of a late start on this swap, so sign-ups will be for two weeks only, ending June 15th and swap packages are due to be mailed out by July 15th.  Since I know how busy this time of year is, the swap will be for 2  Christmas items.  One must be a doll of some sort, Santa, angel, reindeer, etc and the other can be a lesser item.  I am saying this to avoid someone just getting two ornies.  Please give something you would like to receive.  Most of your swappers already know the drill - lol.    I have posted some pictures to give you a few ideas of what you could include:

Santa doll
Christmas garland
candy canes
Christmas signs
Christmas ornies



The rules are as follows:

*You must be a follower of my blog and I must know you to some extent...meaning you have commented many times on my blog.  

*You should have an active blog.

*You must include at least 2 items in your swap package and one must be a doll. Of course, if the Christmas spirit is upon you and you wish to include more goodies, you can.

*You must mail your package by July 15th.  Please include a delivery confirmation on your package.

*This swap is only open to US residents this time.

*Once your receive your swap, you should make a blog post thanking your swap partner and showing us the wonderful treasures you have received.

In order to sign up, you must comment here and then send me your name, address, blog, email and a list of things you like that have to do with Christmas.  You can send that information to me at RWPrimcrafts@aol.com.   PLEASE remember to do this!  I have had at least one person in each swap say they wanted to join, but I never got their information...and I hate to have to ignore their interest in the swap.

Remember, sign-ups end June 15th, so hurry and get your information to me!
Merry Christmas!

Now for those chickie pics I've been promising!  They are all settled into their new home and enjoying the country life!

CLUCK CLUCK!  Is that CHICKEN salad sandwiches I see?   How COULD you!?!?

Thursday I had some friends over for lunch, and I made these yummy chicken salad sandwiches.  I'll be posting the recipe on our food blog, The Crow's Crusty Loaf, later today.  You can find the link to that blog on the upper left sidebar.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
