Fresh turkeys are available at the grocers. Holiday decorations are up in the malls.
You’ve started your holiday To Do list. Yes, it's that time of the year again—time for the

•••2012 The CITR Holiday Swap 2012•••

This year Flatlander/Astrid has passed shepherding the CitR swap to me, Bonita. I hope to do as well as she has in the past. Thank you, Astrid, for all your time and effort. 

It’s a snap to participate, just make a gift for a CitR swap partner.
There’s only one rule: it has to be hand made or home made. You can knit, sew, quilt, crochet, bake, can, saw, or paint. Anything home/handmade will do.

To sign up, simply pm me, Bonita, with your screen name, as well as your postal name and address. You’re in when your name appears in this post. (I’ll try to update daily.)

Thanksgiving week I’ll check in with everyone to make certain each of us will be able to complete the gift in time. If you can’t, that’s okay. We’ll just drop your name from the list. No harm, no foul.

The day after Thanksgiving, November 23, 2012, You’ll receive your swap partner’s name and address. 

The goal is to ship the gifts between November 24th and December 1st. I'll be keeping track of swaps sent and received.

Reminder: If you’re gift is from your kitchen, remember that some CitR members live in cold climates; foodstuffs such as jelly and jam may freeze and glass jars may break.

Wondering what to do? Check out the photos and discussions from last year's swap.

Dear CITR swap participants.

The swap buddy matches are out. Please check your PM mailbox.

Please note that this year the names were matched in a Secret Santa fashion. That is, the name you receive is the person to whom you should send your handmade goodie. A different swap participant will be sending a handmade goodie to you.

Please do all you can to send your goodie off by Dec 1. I'd love a PM when you ship your goodie.

Please, please, do send me a PM if you find you can no longer participate.

 

Let the anticipation begin!

Save the Earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.

YOWZA! some folks have their goodie packages ready to go. . . who will be first? Will the recipient wait until Christmas to open their package?  Or will they rush out to meet the delivery person at the end of the driveway and run back to the house, wrapping paper flying behind them?

Either way, let's hope folks remember to take pictures…we'll all be curious.

I sent mine yesterday.  Post office said it should be delivered by Thursday.

I love getting packages in the mail- I'm going to wait patiently to receive a package and then?

Well, I won't be waiting until Christmas to open it!!!

Because not everyone is celebrating the same Holiday AspenFlower.  All are welcome here, by whatever name!  If you are participating, be welcome to share your own celebration.  We're not excluding Christmas, but including any who wish to share in the CitR Fellowship that the gift exchange offers!  chicken chicken chicken

My package was shipped out this afternoon. Hope the P.O. treats it with care.

Remember, if it rains on your picnic it's also raining on your garden!
