Here is the official list, I will send you more details via email of your swappee
The way this works is it is a down the line swap, so number one makes for number two and number two for number three and so on, until the end of the list where number twenty-four makes for number one (i will detail further in your email)
I have run the list through the random generator, so I havent "fluked" any matchings.

please let me know if you have a blog that I havent listed or your link isnt working. Ok emails should reach you some time in the next couple of days
well it is wet and rainy and even a bit chilly today here, so I have had to pull a photo out of the archives ;-)
This is our dog Fergus (he is actually a long haired border collie with a haircut) lying in the shade of the trees at my inlaws farm. To see more shadow shots go hereAlso, what a week for cockatoos, this is what came to say hi on our deck yesterday morning!! Lucas thinks he lives at a bird park with black cockies on Friday and then this gorgeous sulfur crested one yesterday!!
The Handmade Christmas Ornament Swap is closed now and I will be posting the list a bit later today for everyone so they can get to know their swap partners.
Have a great weekend everyone.
