Crafting Continues... Shipping date approaches on December 5th, 2016

As the rampant commercialism of the holiday season kicks off, the days get shorter and darker, and our to-do lists grow longer, one peaceful place to lose ourselves is in the cathartic and creative act of making an ornament for a fellow loss family. This is what the swap is all about. We hope everyone has been enjoying the crafting... here at Remembering Together we have already been getting a sneak peek at some of the beautiful ornaments that are en route to their families. Once you receive your ornament, we invite you to share a photo with us by email or private facebook message; we will post it to our small [but growing!] global community of loss parents through facebook and our blog. If you are the proud maker of the ornament, it is best to allow your recipient be the one to do the photo-sharing out of respect for their privacy.
Peace and gratitude, everyone!

If you have not already "liked" us on facebook, please do so by clicking here! aside from fun photos, it is also a great way to get important info & reminders each year for the Swap.

Registration Rolls On...

Registration for the 2016 Remembering Together Holiday Ornament Swap continues through November 13th! Please remember that once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email; you must respond to that email by adding your name to the subject line in order to complete the registration process! Once we receive your reply to the confirmation email, you are all set.

When registration closes on the 13th, we will right away begin making matches for the Swap, so if you want to be included, please complete the entire registration process by watching for that confirmation email and responding to it! We generally will send out one reminder, but after that, if we do not hear back from you, we assume that you have chosen not to participate, and no match will be made for you. 

Many thanks for your cooperation and participation!
