HANDMADE MY LITTLE PONY CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT SWAP
index-1.gif

This swap will have us all creating handmade My Little Pony Christmas ornaments for our fellow members here at the Trading Post. They can be sewn, clay, felt, paper pieced… you are only bound by your own imagination!

Check out previous year's ornament swap here:xmastree:


RULES
  • You must make an ornament themed around or depicting a pony from your partners wishlist.
  • Ornament must be wrapped. C'mon it's Christmas, of course it should be wrapped!
  • Delivery confirmation (domestic) or receipt of sending (international) is required! This way if something is lost, we're not mad at you, but it will be the post office's fault. Be sure to package your box for a safe secure delivery!
  • When you receive your ornament you must post a thank you brag in the Show n Tell thread. Failure to do so may result in a negative feedback.
  • You must include a card or note in your package telling your swap partner who created their festive, fabulous bauble.
  • Keep in mind we have members of all different crafting skill levels. At the end of the day what matters is that someone spent time handmaking this ornament for you and I expect everyone to just do their best. Try to create a special ornament that you would be thrilled to receive yourself. It doesn't have to be outrageous, just something you put time and care into :greenheart::happyhearts::greenheart:
  • Any extras are optional, this swap is for a handmade ornament. However, if you wish to include a little candy or some small additional items they should be no more than a few dollars and are entirely at your discretion.

You are allowed up to 3 trading partners, but keep in mind that each item, being a handcrafted masterpiece, will take some time to complete. You want to give your trade partners something to add to their own Christmas tree, and be part of their yearly holiday rituals, so make sure to send something you would be proud to receive yourself!

Everyone who signs up and sends a package should be able to also receive a package in a timely manner. If you are not confident you can have your ornaments shipped by the deadline, please reconsider. There will be other fun festivities to participate in. We understand things arise and some things can't be controlled, that's okay but we also want everyone who participates to enjoy the swap and be assured to have their ornament before the holiday.

If for any reason you run into issues you must communicate with the swap host so we can work it out. Failure to ship by the required deadline or communicate issues in a timely manner may result in a negative feedback. We want to make sure the swap is fair and fun for all who participate.

I can’t wait to see all the wonderful ornaments ❤️
 
I wish there weren't so many restrictions. I'm a crafty pony and love gift giving exchanges, but I'm still new to this particular group.
 
Would eBay feedback count?
 
Ooh! Me me me! How many partners do I want? I know I can at least make two things...
 
I would looooove to take part but I dont have enough feedback here. I though have tons at the Arena, would that help maybe? Its rather old though, havnt been active intrading and such since 2019 :/
Well, however, I love the idea and I hope I can build enough feedback to participate next time :)

I get it and stick around the forum and you'll qualify in no time! Our swap requirements have been set based on years of swap experiences, let's just say they're in place for good reasons and I hope you can understand why we have certain requirements for swaps like this.

Depending on the swap there are different requirements for participation based on commitment. Being active, feedback, length of account and post count are some of the usual factors. For higher value swaps these tend to be higher to help ensure participant follow through, and on smaller value swaps they will be lower to help newer members build up their experience/feedback to then be able to join larger events later :) But there are some requirements that will always be in place to help us also feel more secure in sharing member info. Cause keep in mind, addresses are exchanged and we do what we can to be responsible with that information.

We need to ensure to the best of our ability that all participants are reliable and accountable. Please don't take this personally, but it wouldn't be fair to let some participate that didn't meet the requirements and then not others, and then if we let everyone in we run into the issues we've had in the past that lead to the requirements in the first place.

We just strive for every swap to run smoothly and for all participants to have a fun and safe experience. <3

That said, we do host swaps and events year-round, for all kinds of different holidays and other occasions. So, there will be opportunities for you to participate in some fun and maybe work towards being able to join the next swap. Requirements will be different for different swaps, so be sure to check in here at the TP to be sure you don't miss a swap that you might already meet the requirements for. ;)

Would eBay feedback count?

Yes!!!

"Minimum 2 feedback *other feedback sources may also be considered if ALL other requirements met"

this means if you meet all the criteria except the MLPTP feedback, feedback from other places (ebay, arena, mecari, etc) will be considered, so send me a message and I'll let ya know :)
 
I am sssooooooooo tempted to sign up...

Especially when I see one of my past ornament makes in the banner image! :lolpony:

Question: in addition to making one of our partner's favorite ponies... Is it an option to make a "new" pony based on things they like? For example... The partner states in their wishlist that they love Thanksgiving and fall... So I make a pony ornament with a turkey on the rump and fall colored hair?
 
Yes!!!

Oh I don't really meet the 3 month minimum, thank you for the answer though, I look forward to participating next time :D
