(Technically closed...well, sort of) TexasWren's Annual Ornament Exchange 2017

To the best of my knowledge, all the partner emails have been sent out, as of Oct. 29, 2017. (Aren’t you proud of me???) Please let me know if you have not received your OR if you are one of THOSE people who would still like to join after an exchange has been closed. 😊
Now you can get your ornaments ready and carefully packed, especially anything fragile. Before you seal your package, please take a moment to take a quick photo of the ornament and send it to the ornament email.

TexasWren's Annual international Ornament exchange, hosted by Herchelle

This is international.
The ornament can be bought or homemade, and whatever size/theme/type you like. There are no restrictions on the type of ornament you send to your recipient.

If you'd still like to participate, please send an email to ornamentsbc at gmail dot com (the spaces and words are done that way to avoid spam as much as possible. It's just a regular email address with no spaces, and@ instead of at.)

I need the following information:
BC Name (Very important!)
Real Name
Your Mailing address (This will be sent to only your match partner)
Shipping Preference-again, we will try to match, but be prepared to ship
internationally if necessary.

The past several years, we have had a link to show pictures of the ornaments people received. Yes, I have saved all the pictures from last year and my apologies for not setting them yet. I will get it done soon.

If you have any questions, you can contact me at ornamentsbc at gmail dot com

Looking forward to hearing from all of you soon.

Before I forget...
Please take a picture of your ornament either before you send it to your partner or when you receive your ornament. I will set up the site again so that I can share the pictures. Please send your photos to the ornamentsbc at gmail dot com email.

I'm also from Braunschweig in Germany and I would be very happy to join Ornament Exchange again! It was so joyful last year! I would prefer to have an exchange with a bookcrossing member who lives as far away from Germany as possible :-D

P.S.: Does there exist a link with pictures of the Ornaments that were sent in 2016?

I'm working on it!
Sorry that I didn't complete that part of the exchange, I still have all the pictures...I hope.

Be warned, I had a great time finding the right partner for each and everyone of you. Now I know what Mrs. Klaus feels like, it felt like I was the one giving presents.
So I am presently clearing off my desk and digging out my laptop so that I can start sending out your partner’s info. Wow! There is so much stuff on my desk that I may be in my Mamma’s Cave for a long time tonight. I’m listening to Cat Stevens and opened a bottle of wine. Watch your mailboxes this weekend!
Thank you all for joining this exchange again, and My dear TexasWren, thank you for passing this exchange to me, I am honoured to continue this Bookcrossing tradition.
Cheers!
