It's here! It's finally here! The first annual Robin's Nest Christmas Stocking Swap!

What does the Christmas Stocking Swap involve?

It involves either buying (even a dollar store stocking will work/glam-glitter it up) or making a stocking and filling it with up to $20 worth of gifts & snackies that your partner will like. You can make these gifts or buy them or both! Make sure that whatever you send, it would be something you would be thrilled to receive yourself!

Here's how to enter the Christmas Stocking Swap...(Kids are allowed to join-I just need your parents permission!)

FIRST leave a comment here on my blog saying you want to join. If you have any questions write them in as a comment. THEN send me a E-mail with your particulars to: I will send a confirmation E mail back to you. If you don't receive a confirmation E mail back from me within 3 days, E-mail me again-I don't want anyone getting lost in the shuffle. I will then, to the best of my ability hook you up with someone that has the same style/tastes/likes as you. I will forward each partner the E mail that was sent to me...So I need you to copy and paste these questions below and send them to me in a E-mail. Some answers to these questions might look like this...

STYLE: (example pick one) primitive, traditional, modern, country -whatever your home decor is.

ALLERGIES: (example) I'm allergic to gluten and perfumes (this way you know not to send your partner anything with wheat or smelly candles or lotions)

ANYTHING ELSE ABOUT YOURSELF: (example) I am in my 40's and most all my kids are raised. I love 70's music etc etc.

LIKES/DISLIKES CHRISTMAS DECOR:(example) I love snowmen, snowflakes, plaid ribbons, toile fabric, but I'm not big into Santa decor around my house.

So go ahead and copy and paste the information below and send it to me at : right after you leave a comment! Note from Robin: I've received E mails from England etc...If you live out of the United States you can still join! Welcome!
