Stocking Swap 2013

Well, i hate to say it but its on its way. I can't hear the jingle of bells yet but it not long till the shops have Slade on repeat and you can't escape the tinsel!

This must mean that its time for.........

Yes, Its time for a swap
Sorry, swap now closed for this year.

As a small children we all received stockings from Santa, filled with sweeties, things Santa thought we'd fine useful (socks, hair bobbles and notelets for thank you letters), the odd toy and of course a tangerine! I still get a stocking because my mum does them for everyone and although she might moan a little about it she loves doing it and we love getting them.
So, as i did last year, i thought I'd organise a swap so we can all have them
So to the swap 'rules'
It must include a stocking (bort or made) or equivalent (i got a fab loo seat cover last year!)
and in this stocking you must put - 
A Christmas decoration
             purchased or handmade, we all like pretties!
           nuts, chocolate? Santa always pops yummy treats in a stocking
Something useful 
          socks, fabric, ribbons, hair bobbles? read your partners blog and find out what they'd
          find useful
         or a representation of them. We always got bubble bath, I'm sure Santa thinks i stink!
Something to play with  
       fabric again, a small cuddly toy, air fix model!!!!!
and last but not least
the tangerine 
      or something that represents it

 sign up below. make sure i can contact you by email as I'll send you a tiny little questionnaire to help your swap partner (and thus you).  Closing date  - October 9th (ish) plenty of time to get it sorted and sent out before the big day!
