Christmas Ornament Swap 2014

Hello there, remember me?,

Over the last few years I've participated in or organised a Christmas ornament swap. Last year I felt too busy to organise one but I really missed checking my letterbox for new homemade ornaments (aka love) for our home. So this year it's happening again... Whoop, whoop! 

Here is a link to some of the ornament goodness that was swapped in 2011. There were lots of hearts and here's another cute one: 

Here's the details:

Participants will be put into groups of four people, and you will "swap" ornaments. That means making four handmade ornaments, three for the other people in your group and one for you. I will be send the postage details of the others in your group and you need to post them an ornament by the 30th November. I will not send your address to anyone else. Resulting in four beautiful ornaments. 

How to Join:
If you would like to take part in this swap, this is what you need to do:
Please email your:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Email address 
  • Blog or facebook page link if you have one
to my email address, agreenandsometimesbluelife at gmail dot com by the 31st October. 

What to make: 
You needn't be a crafter to make something that you and others will love. 
 You can use any craft technique as long as it has a Christmas ornament theme. They can be made from anything ..... natural things, wool, felt, buttons, beads, fabric, paper.....I have a stash of crafty stuff so please ask if you need something.

For some inspiration please check out my Ornament and Christmas board's on pinterest (you don't have to be on pinterest for this) and look at the a green (and sometimes blue) life blog posts under the name Christmas for ideas. 

I'll leave you with these quotes:
"Nobody is ever too busy. If they care they will make time."

"Once she stopped rushing through life, 
she was amazed how much more life she had time for."

Hello 2014 - One word


Just quickly I thought I'd drop in and share a pretty summery NZ Happy New Year for 2014 (see 2013 here).

I spent New Years Eve in a backcountry hut and walked out in the rain this morning wading across a river 6 times. Not everybodies cup of tea but one of my favourte things to do. 

And my word for this year... 


Should make for a good year I reckon.
