Probably not this year. Money is tight and I don't see it improving much by Xmas.

It's such a pain (and super expensive) shipping things from Canada. Blah.

I've had people in the past use American sites to order and ship directly from the site.

As Lynd's knows we do this every year in our other playroom and its wonderful so I would love to do it here. We've also paired up canadian moms so they could ship to each other and make it easier and less expensive for them so they can participate

Do you just purchase a random ornament or craft one yourself? I've never done one

We always just bought one. I've gotten personalized ones and ones from the state/town the sender was from. I've loved every one I've gotten so far

The ornament exchange is by far my favorite. I have one all the way from the UK!

Christmas ornaments are actually a really special thing in our family. Almost all of our ornaments are from trips we have taken or special occasions we wanted to commemorate on our tree. You ladies have come to mean so much to me that I would love to have a reminder of that on our Christmas tree for years to come. So I am interested, for sure.

I love the idea of ornaments from where people live. How interesting to collect them over the next couple of years and be able to tell you children about the places.

When I've done personalized ones for my pair I always try to include a special message on the back. Lyndsey has one from me
