NEW: Christmas Canning Jar Craft Swap

susandonb(NC 7)October 23, 2007

Hi Folks,

I have been out a while due to a car accident, but am recooping and am out of work and so home alot. I would like to host a swap that I thought of when I started making these last month.

This will be a one to one swap and can be limited only to your imagination.

Make any type of craft for Christmas out of a canning jar. Any size jar, pint or qt any materials. Can be decorative, food based or whatever you think of.

Sign up through Nov 15th Mail on or before November 30th.

Thank you,

Susan in NC

Susan, hope you're feeling well after your accident. What a terrible ordeal to experience. :(

Well, since I enjoyed another swap that you hosted, I'll be more than happy to join in on this one! I already have some ideas...

Hi Marie,

I stated that Nov 30th would be mailing time, thinking that this would give everyone time to enjoy their decoration for a while. I have mine made already, LOL but I will wait. Plus I was giving till Nov 15th for sign ups.

So, spread the word. I also posted this on Harvest Forum so maybe I will combine partners.

Susan,
I have a question. Are we exchanging one jar craft? Or are we exchanging more than one item?

I have LOTS of ideas!

Deb,
I intended just one jar. I guess if you want to add something, feel free, but I don't want others to feel obligated. I was making a qt jar craft and sending it with a Christmas card.

Thanks,
Susan

Oh klick, I love them, but you gave away your surprise. LOL

I can't show mine, I want it to be a surprise. I thought I would let people sign up until Nov. 15th, do you all think we should close it sooner? It is ok with me, let me know.

Hi Everyone,
Sorry to be late with this swap. I will post the partners tomorrow evening and the swaps can begin. I have been down with my neck injury and will be having surgery soon so I got behind on things.

Sorry again.

I hope I havnt forgotten anything. Ann, you went way above & beyond. Thank you so much for your generosity.

I hope everyone is receiving their packages and enjoying this swap.

Have a great weekend,

Has anyone heard from Christine? I sent out my box to her on Nov 29. Confirmation shows it was delivered,but I've not heard from her,other than when I got her address from her,& she said my package was being mailed the same week I mailed hers .Still no package from her either. Hope she is just really busy with the holiday& that she is ok.

I received a beautiful jar from Susan to day. To bad I cain't send a picture. It is blue on the inside it has a battery operated lights on the inside and different size snowflakes glued on the outside with a real pretty blue and white ribbon tied on the top. It is really cute. Thank you Susan very much. You are very crafty. Ann

Deb - my package arrived yesterday. Deb made me a pint candle jar - in the jar was some potpourri that smells wonderful! and on top of the lid she put an electric candle. What a clever idea! Then she send a little cross stitch kit.

Thanks so much Deb and I am glad you enjoyed the 'jar' I sent.

Marie,
I'm glad you liked the candle jar! They make such cute night lights. The potpourri was scented with White Barn's Creamy nutmeg spray. I love that scent during the Holidays! The bulb is a regular night light bulb that I dipped in regular clear silicone (and wrapped a wire around the base to hold, and let it dry overnight hanging). So easy to make!

If I'm remembering correctly Jules/Klick posted that she had a Family problem, and won't be participating in any swaps for now. I can't remember what swap thread I read that message on.
