Homemade swap

I am seriously considering doing only a homemade Christmas this year. For one I love to make things, and second my daughters cheer team just qualified for Nationals in Florida which is in two weeks. So my bank account is officially in a state of distress.

What about a homemade swap? I have not really thought about any of the details since I am a fly by the seat of my pants type of gal and I am sure I am not the only one who has ever come up with such an idea. I am a flower making nutcase. In the post below is one of my designs. Wouldn't it be fun to swap for something else homemade but different so we could have a variety of goods to give. HMMMM....... ideas anyone??

And what is a post without a picture

Not only do I do flowers, I also do wreaths. I am singly handedly obsessed with them. I could seriously count 8 of them in my home as we speak. I have left the idea of the swap in a comment on a blog that I recently found and I rather like it. I found her etsy shop first and then poof I found the blog. I have my eye on one of her flower necklaces. Like I said, I like flowers. Let me just tell you her recipe for the maple syrup dressing is divine it really could change your life. I am off to create something oh who am I fooling I am off to clean something. I am expecting at least 25 on turkey day how about you? Let me know what you think about the swap???

Hey! A swap would be way fun. I just can't figure out how we would do it. I guess I could put it out there and the first 10 people who sign up would be the winners. We could draw names within the group and you are responsible for mailing one item to a person on the list, and you will receive an item from someone on the list. Would that work?? Love all the cute flower things you are making. Aren't those fabric flower necklaces fun! I just love making them. They take forever though!! :)

I think its an awesome idea. Maybe there could be categories, price ranges and such. Somebody smarter than me surely could figure out a system. Sounds like a plan though. There is one problem.. I am not crafty. I'm still in the learning stage.
