2. On November 14th you'll receive an email with the addresses of 5-10 other swap partners to send your   ornaments to.

 If you would like to share photos of the ornaments you make and receive, please do so in the flickr group:

 You will need a flickr account to upload photos. A flickr account is free and easy to set up.

What sort of materials can be used?
Any craft or art material!  It is only limited by your imagination!
 Please do not send food products.

Will my address be on the internet anywhere?
~No. The only people who will receive your address are the people you are swapping with.

What about shipping costs?
~You are responsible for shipping costs for your ornaments...just as others are paying to ship ornaments to you.

****A note on international shipping****
If you package your ornaments accordingly, shipping prices really aren't that much different considering the weight of your ornament. Be sure to read your countries shipping policies as well.
 Please note that certain countries have restrictions as far as importing grains, beans, or other like materials, so please take that into consideration if you are making ornaments to ship internationally.
