Holiday Helper Swap

Christmas is just around the corner.
Are you ready for it?
I know I’m not.

I keep trying, but I find that I can always use a little help around the holiday times.
So, who is up for a little “Holiday Helper Swap?”

Holiday Helper Swap

Wrapping paper, ribbon, cards, Christmas music,
Packages and boxes, cookies and gingerbread houses, oh my!
Need some help? Or just a spot of brightness in the mail?
Sign up for our swap and be dazzled with Christmas delight.

1. When can I sign up?: right now! Deadline is Wed. Nov. 21.

2. Who’s my partner?: We will send out your partner info via e-mail around Nov. 21 or 22

3. What goes into a package?: Have fun with this!
Beautiful tissue paper, bright colored ribbons, twine, raffia, handmade gift tags,
colored or striped tape, tulle, small items to be tied on top of packages,
a handmade ornament, Christmas scrapbook papers, Christmas fabric scraps,
Christmas buttons, Holiday stickers, vintage Christmas sheet music, a handmade garland,
a CD of your favorite Christmas music (or burn a CD full of all of your favorite songs!),
a Christmas magazine issue that has inspired you this Holiday season,
Holiday recipes that are family tradition or are great to take to celebrations,
a candle or two of your favorite Holiday scent, some tea for calming frazzled nerves,
a delicious treat, maybe a small gift to your partner {just because} to brighten their day.

4. How to I join in on all this fun?: send us an email at

with the following details
