What we will be swapping


We will be partnered up & decorate our Gingerbread ( bird ) House using/upcycling items from our stash & from around the house. These are not going into an album but are for decor! So lets use scraps & leftovers, bits & baubles of any kind. Sisal trees, Wreaths, faux snow, anything from your Xmas decorating that you have you want to re-purpose can go on to this little house. Broken strands of beads, like the necklace kind that are for Mardi Gras? Those are great trims. You can add lights that are fake or now they even have itty bitty battery operated leds that can light up. I was thinking of sending a little goody to go with when we ship like a little xmas stocking? You can make a Gingerbread Man cookie or buy one if you dont bake, or a mug with cocoa mix? Some sort of goody that your partner will enjoy with her house. I wanted to keep the cost down, but let you put to good use some of the left over scraps as we all have them. If you would like to go & buy things for your house you can, think small though, I know M's has these & if you cant find them let me know so I can round them up & I will ship to you. M's also has a miniature Xmas aisle as well as the $1 store & J's. I set up Mini trees around my home every year so I collect little things year round & make them into ornaments etc. for those. Of course this is much much smaller!
Requirements- You must Paint, cover with Paper, & embellish these. I was thinking Due Date of around Nov 15th so they can be enjoyed for those who decorate right after Thanksgiving. Weekly check-ins are a must. Please let me know what everybody thinks of Due Date & requirements or any suggestions. So if you are interested after seeing the pics please sign up if you want a spot as I want to get a count of who is in or not. Ok?

Sounds like a really fun idea, and I love the using your own stash and upcycling aspect of it. I'm also interested in seeing some examples too, but am pretty sure I'd like to get on board with this one regardless. It seems like there is a lot of potential to just have fun with creating it.

Shilo did a birdhouse swap for Valentine's Day last year. It is probably along the same lines. I will see if I can dig up the thread and post it.
**Update: Here is the link altered bird house swap

Ok I'm sorry girls as I fell under the weather last week and couldn't post the pics! Yes thanks for the link the birdhouses are smaller in those photos these are a little bigger I want to say maybe the base is 4 1/2 inches wide by 5 1/2" long? I didn't get a chance to measure but I will get all the stuff done by late today or early tomorrow ok? Thanks for the interest I appreciate it!

Good morning ladies. I was having problems updating the thread so I will try and do that with the laptop today as i seem to not be able to do that from my itouch. The last few days have been extremely busy for me & didn't have a lot of time to go back to keep re-trying to post what my itouch & 2peas were not letting me! Sigh. Anyways, wanted to check in with you all. Have a great morning!

I've seen a few different kinds of little wood birdbouses in the Christmas sections of the craft stores, so if the swap is still going to happen, let us know and also which size birdhouse so I know what to get.
