Well Easter is Apr 21 anyone wish to - Arlin Eastman - 01-01-2019

do like the Christmas exchange?  I am thinking same rules but maybe 2 or 3 eggs, Bunnies or other Easter items.

Any Carving or Turning or any hand made wooden objects.

I am thinking they should be mailed by Apr 12, 2019. If interested please PM me.

Also can a mod sticky this for me please.

What is an "Easter ornament"?

That is a new one for me.

I just took it as anything related to Easter.

I was thinking Easter eggs were ornaments or ornamental  so I looked it up

or·na·ment
noun
noun: ornament; plural noun: ornaments
/ˈôrnəmənt/
  1. 1.
    a thing used to make something look more attractive but usually having no practical purpose, especially a small object such as a figurine.
    synonyms:
    knickknack, trinket, bauble, bibelot, gewgaw, gimcrack, furbelow; More
    informal whatnot, doodad, tchotchke
    "small tables covered with ornaments"

    • a quality or person adding grace, beauty, or honor to something.
      "the design would be a great ornament to the metropolis"

    • decoration added to embellish something, especially a building.
      "it served more for ornament than for protection"
      synonyms:
      decoration, adornment, embellishment, ornamentation, trimming, accessories
      "the dress had no ornament at all"

    • Music
      embellishments and decorations, such as trills or grace notes, added to a melody.
    • Christian Church
      the accessories of worship, such as the altar, chalice, and sacred vessels.
              1.
               make (something) look more attractive by adding decorative items.
[*]

So I guess anything can be an ornament just as long as it is dressed up like a wooden bunny or egg or whatever else that can be dressed up.

Is this Spam?  I think so since we are doing Easter ornaments.

I just thought I'd give this a friendly bump back to the top.
I haven't seen a lot of interest in the Easter swap yet. Hopefully Arlin has his hands full with PMs.

There are a lot of advantages to these swaps. 
First off they're fun. I really enjoyed the Christmas exchange. That's enough reason to do another for me.

They're challenging.  Well, at least for me. The different holiday themes get me to think about the holiday and what might be appropriate for both the holiday and the person I'm swapping with.  It keeps the mind active.

They're good practice and a great place to try any new ideas you might have.
 
If you're a new wood worker they're a great way to put your work in the hands of another woodworker and get a friendly critique from someone with the same interests.  So newer members don't be shy.

Besides, any reason to get in your shop and make something is a good reason.

I'm off the soap box now.

I've got my shop torn apart at the moment redoing a few things. I'll have to pass on this one.
