Jesse Tree Ornament Swap 2013 Update--Have You Joined Us Yet?

By Absolon Stumme (www.mnw.art.pl) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons
The ornament swap is now closed.  We're currently receiving the last of the ornaments, sorting them into boxes and preparing to ship sets to participants.  Thanks to all who participated!
I anticipate a series of posts on each of the persons represented in the Jesse tree.

Okay Jesse tree ornament swap participants, here are the ornaments to choose from!

There are 28 ornaments.  We are hoping to have two alternates, just in case.  So, two additional people can sign up to participate, even after all the ornaments are spoken for.   Alternates will need to be willing to "stand by" and dive into action to create the 30 copies of an ornament quickly-- if, for some reason, one of our other participants must withdraw. Each participant will be making an extra two ornaments just in case there is breakage in transit.  This means that each participant will be making 32 copies of his/her ornament.

Leave a comment below with your name and the ornament name and number that you would like to do. I will try to keep up with comments and mark ornaments as "taken" as soon as they are claimed, but I'm sure this will be impossible to do perfectly.  Please check all prior comments before posting your choice to be sure that your choice has not already been taken.  (I have turned off comment moderation until this process is finished in order to make things easier!)

     
***It's best to indicate your ornament choice in a comment, because that way everyone knows that it is taken, even if I haven't seen it yet.***
