Christmas Faith Hope and Charity Swap! Tis the season to sign up

It was another resounding yes to the Faith Hope and Charity Shopping Christmas swap for this year, so I guess I'll be dusting off my spreadsheet once again. If you've played before you'll know the drill, but it's always more fun if new people get involved as well. If you fancy getting involved in the best exchange of second hand goods since Ebay, then remind yourself of the rules and sign up in the comments. Please leave a link to your blog - if you have a closed profile I can't find you!

SIGN UP NOW CLOSED - PARTNERS ANNOUNCED SOON
  • You will need a regularly updated blog and be willing to post when you receive your items from your swap partner. Sorry to non-bloggers, but the swap is done on trust and some online presence does make things easier. Please don't sign up and then disappear, it makes things very difficult.
  • Bloggers are welcome world-wide as usual. I will try to assign partners within the same country/continent but please let me know if you would be willing to send abroad if necessary.
  • As usual, you should send your swap partner a minimum of three items, a maximum of five. 
  • There is a maximum spend of £12 or the equivalent in your local currency.
  • At least one item - though more if you can - should be second hand, and  sourced from a charity shop, car boot sale, jumble, estate sale, eBay or similar.
  • At least one item should be handmade. If you are not crafty yourself, it's fine to provide a handmade item that someone else has toiled over instead.
  • And this time, one item MUST relate to a Christmas carol or song. How you interpret this is up to you! 
  • One item could fulfil several categories. A home-made white fluffy pom-pom garland made from thrifted wool could count as handmade, second hand and represent 'Let it Snow', for example.
  • Sign up will close on 28th October and I will assign partners on the blog soon afterwards so please keep an eye out.



The more people who sign up the better chance I have of introducing you to someone new and of finding a partner in your country, so please display the badge above on your sidebar with a link to this post

That's all for now, thanks in advance for getting involved!

  34. Oh Lakota you are a trooper for doing this - the thought of cross-referencing a spreadie makes my head explode - but thanks so much for doing this. I missed out on the jubilee one as I was having a bit of a pregnancy-related lapse (on blogging and life generally) but would love to take part this time.

    Cheers xx
