Secret Santa C&T
Oct 21st, 2010 at 9:13pm
 
Hope everyone is ready for a new Challenge & Trade.  Your new challenge is to turn a Christmas Ornament.  Aah, but not just any Christmas ornament.  Similar to last year’s C&T, it must be made from at least 2 different woods or other materials in any configuration. Whether laminated, segmented, mortise/tenon joint, or whatever.  And it must have some sort of hollow center. Such as, inside out or hollowed. 

We will open the gallery on Saturday, November 13.  Pictures must be posted by midnight EST Saturday, November 20.  Also a PM with your mailing address must be received by me by the same deadline.  Pairing assignments will be posted Sunday.  Unlike last year, we want everyone to get these before Christmas, so all packages need to be postmarked by Wednesday, November 24.

As was implied by the Subject Line, this will be a Mystery Round Robin style trade.  Everyone who participates will be assigned another member to surprise with their Ornament.  Don’t mention to whom or where you are sending it.  Everyone needs to post here when they ship, and again when they receive their ornament.

Please sign up here if you plan to participate,
the more,
the merrier.
  But if your picture is not posted, and you haven't PM'ed your address to me, by the deadline, you will not be assigned a trade.  Also indicate in your PM whether you are willing to pay the additional postage to trade with our overseas members, if we have any participate.

OK!  You have about 4 weeks to do this.  Let's get out there and turn some ornaments! 

For those members who are new and wonder what a C&T might be, here is an explanation.

C&T stands for Challenge & Trade.  We define the parameters of a challenge for you to perform.  After completion, you post a picture in the new C&T area of the Gallery.  Participants will receive a PM with name and address of the member they are to send the completed item.  They will receive one from the same person if we are doing partners, or a different person if we do a Round Robin trade.  If we are doing partners and have an odd number complete the challenge, we end up with the 3 final members in a Round Robin.  Sometimes we do a Mystery Round Robin where nobody knows whose piece they will receive until they get it.

Me, me, me, me......

Also, would it be possible to ask participants to not name the person they got their ornament from when posting it's arrival, just post a "thanks it's arrived and it's lovely" message to help Mods monitor progress and send a PM to the maker instead please?

Chris,

I meant a thank you on the boards... "I got my ornament, looks great, thank you $*+#^"... without actually posting the name of the sender and a private message to the sender if the recipient wished.  It worked well in previous C&Ts because nobody knew which piece a person had got.

Good suggestion Bren.  That way people won't be trying to figure out what they are getting by what has already been received.  After all have been acknowledged, then you can name whose ornament you got.
