So here is a thing.
I need more flamingos for my Christmas tree.
And by need I mean want, but whatever. This is important.
Now, I know for a fact that there are at least, like, ten other crazy flamingo people who read this blog. Maybe eleven. Maybe more who are hiding in the bushes. And I’ll bet at least some of them are crafty, amiright? Right. So I am proposing an exchange. With me.
Who wants to exchange homemade flamingo ornaments with me?
24 hour update: Flamingo exchange is maxed out. Come back next year!
Interested? Read on…
See, ever since the valentine exchange started a few years ago I have been toying with the idea of an ornament exchange. However, because the valentine exchange is almost too-big for me to handle on my own anymore, I want to keep this one as small and streamlined as possible. And because this is my blog, I get to set down self-serving limitations. I like flamingos, thereby, this exchange is limited to flamingos. The ornament need not be fancy, it could be a simple cut-out or a child’s drawing or such…so long as it is a flamingo and can be hung on a Christmas tree type of thing. I won’t ruin the surprise by showing you a picture of what I am sending, but I can tell you now it involves real feathers (read: if you are offended by the use of feathers, this is probably not a good trade for you).
So here is what I propose: You email me before November 25, we exchange mailing addresses, we both commit to sending our mingos free by end of this month, that way we get to enjoy them all December. I’m thinking the demand for this will be limited (not everyone wants flamingos on their tree, can you imagine?), but I have 30 already made and ready to go. If 30 people email me before November 25th, I’ll update this post to indicate the exchange is closed.
24 hour update: Flamingo exchange is now closed. I see a couple of names in the comments from folks who want to sign up but have yet to send me an email — please send an email asap so I can get a final head count. Thanks!
