I Swear I'm not Skipping Fall...

I know I said that Christmas needed to wait it's turn
and I still agree with that. case you hadn't noticed,
there is a little thing called preparation that goes along with it.
I pinky swear,
this is the last time I'll mention anything about Christmas
until after Thanksgiving.

I just think you really need to know about this.
And you need to know about it now.

Erin at Living in Yellow  and Jessah at Dreaming of Dimples
are hosting a mega-huge blogger ornament swap.

And because Christmas ornaments are the best part about Christmas
(besides the food and presents and trees and family and Jesus and time off of work and well...everything else about Christmas)
I'm letting all of you know so you can join in on the fun.

It's suuuuuuper simple.

Step 1. Sign up. 
This can be done here or here
Link up your blog below to let us know you want to participate in the swap.
Sign ups close at Midnight on October 31st.
(That's next get to hopping.)

Step 2. Spread the word. 
Everyone loves getting special deliveries in the mail. Especially when it’s a super festive item like an ornament for your holiday tree. So let all of your blog friends know about the swap. The more, the merrier. 

Step 3. Get your match. 
On Thursday, November 1st, we will post the swap matches. You will contact the blogger you’re buying for via their blog, email, twitter, facebook, etc. to get their address. 

Step 4. Shop and Mail. 
On or before November 12th, purchase and mail your ornament. This means your ornament should be en route to its recipient NO LATER THAN the 12th

Step 5. Receive & Blog about your ornament! 
This is the fun part! Blog, Instagram, Tweet your Ornament Swapping Adventure. Be sure and use #ornamentswap on Instagram & Twitter so other Swappers can find you! 

Step 6. Link up! 
We will be hosting a Linky Party on December 1st for those of you bloggers that want to link up your posts! (This gives you plenty of time to make sure your ornament arrives & recap your adventures.) 

Step 7: Enjoy your ornament forever!
I added this step.
But I feel like it's the most fun.
All the ornaments on our tree have a story behind them.
And every year, when we decorate, we stop and think about the story/event/memory connected to each ornament.
This blogger-swap ornament will be no different!
