I have somewhere between 8-10 people and counting that were interested in joining the swap but their first choice was already chosen by someone else before them. Clearly a pitfall of the comment moderation on my blog. So I'm going to attempt to host a second swap for those of you who weren't able to get in on the first round. Just like last time, I will start with just 28 ornaments and if there is enough interest, I'll add in the O Antiphons.

**Ornaments are assigned on a first come first served basis. I strongly suggest putting your top three choices in the comments.**If you send me an email make sure the subject line says Second Jesse Tree Swap so I can tell the two swaps apart.

If we have enough participants by Saturday, October 12th we will go forward with the swap. Share this post with others who might want to join in.

I would like to ship all of the ornaments out to the swap participants by November 23rd to ensure that everyone has their ornaments in time for the first Sunday of Advent. That means I will need to

**receive**your ornaments by November 21st at the latest. If we start now that gives you about 5 1/2 weeks to make the ornaments and ship them to me.

**I'd suggest mailing your ornaments no later than November 14th to ensure they arrive on time.**

Participants will need to also cover return postage for the ornaments. I'm thinking medium flat rate priority mail boxes would be the least stressful option, for me, not my poor mail carrier who will probably skip my house for the remainder of the year. Shipping for medium sized flat rate boxes is $12.35.

I have put suggestions for possible ornaments for each of the ornaments. Feel free to be as creative as you want to be. Ornaments can be made out of wood, felt, fabric, clay, yarn and so on. I'd suggest the ornaments be no larger than 2-4 inches since we need to make sure they all fit in the medium sized flat rate box.

Hi Karen,

ReplyDeleteWOW! Thanks for doing a second one. I would like #27-The Nativity. Other choices would be #24-B.V.M., or #17 Elisha. God Bless. BTW, how to we pay you, check or paypal for the postage?jmhahsatgmaildotcom.

Julie

I put you down for #27. I will send out an email once I have everyone signed up. I'm thinking PayPal is probably the easiest way to pay for return shipping. Thanks for participating. Spread the word so we can get enough people to fill this swap.

ReplyDeleteThank you. God Bless!!

Erin,

DeletePlease email me at Karen(at)KareninMommyland(dot)com I have tried emailing you with the swap details using the email you gave me in the comment above and I got a failure notice.

Thanks so much for organizing this! Can I do #5?

ReplyDeleteWendy

Hi Karen,

ReplyDeleteIf it's still available, I'd like to take Abraham (tent). Thank you so much!

Jodi,

DeleteI'm sending you an email now. Please send me your second choice. The tent was claimed already, but we still have 6 more ornaments left.

I am part of the first group and we are doing day 2:)

ReplyDeleteIf you don't fill day 2 in the second group we would love to do another Set.

We have a Organic Market and would love a set for our store:)

Pam, I added you onto swap 2 for day 2.

DeleteHey I know that you are soo close to having 28 people...I will do the second swap too...I hate that so many people would be disappointed- I will take #16 first and then #15 second. put me down for two swaps I guess ;)

ReplyDeleteThank you, Shannon! I put you down for #16. Only one ornament to go and the swap is filled!

DeleteWe could still do it, just everyone make their own number #15. It's just one ornament extra - I doubt anyone would mind.

ReplyDeleteI'm sure we can get one more person to join.

Deleteokay I would love to join if not too late.

ReplyDeleteYou're not too late! #15 is yours, Solomon's Temple. Thanks for joining us! Please email me with your email address.

DeleteOK, I know this is probably a dumb question, but we each make 28 f our assigned ornament, right? Thanks, I'm just someone who likes to double check.

ReplyDeleteI was hoping for a confirmation email with all the info.

DeleteHi Jennifer,

DeleteThis swap is making 28 ornaments of the same design.

Shannon,

I'll be sending out an email with the details for the swap tomorrow. I spent most of this evening trying to gather emails for everyone in both swaps.

Thanks for all your work with this. I'm so glad I heard about it from Sonia. :)

DeleteI'm so bummed that I didn't see this before yesterday and respond sooner. Is it too late to get in on this second swap?

ReplyDeleteWow, is there any change you will be adding the O Antiphons into this 2nd swap so I could get in on it?! =) If so, please let me know!!

ReplyDeletei am having such a great time making these!!
