2014 Swap Wrap Up

Wow, all of a sudden it's the middle of January. I'm sorry it's taken so long to wrap things up for the 2014 Swap, but all the things that got put on hold in the lead up to Christmas demanded their share of my attention right after. This is going to be a long post so please stick with me.

There were so many beautiful ornaments created this year in honor of our babies. I hope that all of you had the chance to see the ones that were shared on the FB page.

I know some people did not receive the ornaments they should have and again I apologize and thank you for your patience while we tried to get things straightened out. We will continue to try to make sure that it doesn't happen to anyone else in the future.

A huge thank you goes out to all those who volunteered to make extra ornaments in December when circumstances prevented some families from making their ornaments. Your generosity is greatly appreciated by me and those who received your ornaments.

Thank you to all the participants for sharing your talents with each other and and helping make each of the last 4 holiday seasons a little brighter. While there have been challenges each year, I know the majority of  people have done their best to live up to their commitments and have appreciated the efforts of those making the ornaments and the organizers. I am grateful to Jenni, the founder of the swap, for starting the swap and for entrusting me with the responsibility to keep it going.

I'd like to introduce the new co-organizers of the Remembering Together Swap, Rebecca and Brynna. They have been working hard along with me on this year's swap and have made my last swap as organizer much more relaxed and enjoyable. I know they will do a great job of organizing the swap next year and in years to come.  The swap is in good hands and I hope the swap will continue to grow and get better each year. I plan to be around to support the new organizers and to participate and I hope you all will too.
