  • 2020 Ornament Exchange

    421B19D2-EEA6-4759-ADCE-C5DE70C4708D.pngOrnament Exchange 2020

    I will be this year's host of the annual tradition. And since Christmas will be here before we know it I figured I'd get things started early.

    Anyone that would like to participate, please send me the following information via PM or email. The cut off date will be Nov. 15 I'm hoping to get more people to sign up. I should have your list of addresses to you by the couple days after dead line . That should allow for enough time for those international packages. Of course, receiving ornaments in January is fun too. And it has happened before, so no worries.

    Is there any suggestions on what i can do to encourage more people to sign up?

    Please provide the following information if you would like to participate:

    Name
    Address
    Board name
    How many ornaments you would like to make (anywhere from 1 to all

    General Guidelines:

    1. Ornament type/pattern is up to you.

    2. You get to choose how many ornaments you would like to make. It can be anywhere from 1 to everyone in the group. The choice is yours. So even those folks on a limited income can participate. You do NOT have to send one to everyone in the swap.

    3. You are responsible for all postage costs to send out your ornament. Be sure to take this into consideration when making your ornament and committing to the number you'll send out. Flat ornaments will be easier to package and cheaper to ship.

    4. Please package your ornament securely. We've had issues in the past where ornaments were destroyed in transit because the postal machine was hungry for wood. Usually a little cardboard and a padded envelope will work. I wouldn't recommend putting your ornament into just a Christmas card or just an envelope and mailing it.


    Please include your screen name from the boards in the package since most folks will recognize that name before they recognize your real name. Most folks include some type of card with their screen name and real name.

    6. We try to wait until just about everyone has received their ornaments so that we don't ruin the surprise. Please wait until at least after christma to post pics.

    7. Have fun. It's so much fun going to the mailbox hoping that you have another ornament waiting for you. Definitely much better than getting a pile of bills!

    8. Please post on this page when you you receive the name list and when you receive your ornaments my mail.

    9. PLEASE POST PICTURES OF ALL ORNAMENTS YOU RECEIVE

    Any questions, please let me know

    My Email Address is [email protected]

    Thanks David

    I will update This list as often as I can when I receive Your information. IF your Name is NOT on this list, then I dont have your in​​​​​​fo. Thanks

                    Dave and group:
                    The weather and other projects have just about shut me down for the season, so I think I need to regretfully opt out this year.
                    But I will be watching for what I missed.

                        Nothing major. Since I cut on the patio, it's getting too cold and just a lot of family events stacking up.

                          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                          As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                          I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                          I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                          To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...

                          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
