Joli Paquet Vintage Stocking Swap

Hello! Can you believe it's the Holiday season already? Well, the Joli Paquet girls are ready to kick off our holiday season with tutorials, inspiration, kits, and yep, a swap! We had several people request that we do another swap so we thought we would give it a go!

What we're swapping: We're swapping Christmas stockings with a vintage flair. You will have ONE partner, and with that partner you will swap a stocking either made by you or embellished by you. (Yes, you can purchase a pretty stocking and embellish it, but there has to be handmade touches or embellishments to it) You will also fill your stocking with happy things for your partner. The items you fill your stocking with should be thoughtful, things you would like to receive, and with a vintage charm. Try to include some genuine vintage items.

How to join? Send me an email to cerri @, and answer the following questions for me by Sunday the 14th.
What kind of Christmas palette do you love?
Whites and neutral
Pastel and sweet
Please provide links to your blog, flickr, or wherever you share your work.

Give us an idea of the things that you love, or don't love.

Please provide your address, and email address.
Please let me know whether you're willing to ship internationally or not, and be aware if you are that you will need to ship your package earlier than the deadline.

Stockings will need to be mailed by December 6th so that your partner will have time to receive your stocking and enjoy it!

Here's some wonderful stocking inspiration I found on flickr.

Sounds like fun, right?
Don't forget to send me an email by Sunday the 14th, and I will have partners assigned by the 18th.
I hope you'll join us!
Please feel free to add the button above to your blog if you would like, and the new holiday Joli Paquet button can be found in the sidebar to the left. Please tell your friends, and help us spread the word about our holiday season!
PS, Didn't Cindy do a great job sprucing up the blog and making it feel festive? Thanks Cindy!
