Hi! I am looking to see if forum members would be interested in a Secret Santa Swap. Tiffany had posted about a Valentines swap that was being run on FB last january. I thought it would be fun to run one here with Swirly forum members. We would pick a name and send our Santa 12 little gifts that they would open one a day for 12 days. a 9X12 envelope can be mailed to reduce postage. Inteationals welcome. We would start opening gifts on Dec 1st until the 12th. Before the Holiday begins. If it will seem too crazy we could also postpone until valentines day or do another one if it goes well. Each player would provide a list to santa of wants and desires and things they have enough of to help the Santa decide what to send. If I have interest I will post in swap thread for sign ups but please let me know here if we have interest.October 16, 2012 at 11:57 am #184281October 16, 2012 at 8:53 pm #184282October 17, 2012 at 1:58 am #184283October 17, 2012 at 1:52 pm #184284October 17, 2012 at 9:49 pm #184285
Connie, could you let us know exactly what we'd be expecting to send out day by day?
Thanks.October 18, 2012 at 12:49 am #184286
Sure Peggy. We could either make it Random and have items from our stash like 6 flowers, bottle of stickler, yard of lace, DA Chippy, Something off our Secret Santa's list. Homemade items like flowers, embellishments, As easy as we can make it. Emphermera and found items. 12 items made by you or from your stash. We would open 1 a day. Does that help? Open to suggestions too.October 18, 2012 at 9:20 pm #184287
I've been mulling this over for a few days. (I love the idea, but want to be sure I can commit to it properly.) This is probably a stupid question, but can all 12 items be mailed all at once in the same envelope?October 18, 2012 at 11:58 pm #184289
Linda, that's what I was wondering.
Sorry, Connie, it looks like a lot of us need Santa lessons 🙂October 19, 2012 at 12:15 am #184290
lol. yep all can be mailed at once and we just have to be able to control ourselves and open 1 per day. We could post on the thread each day.October 19, 2012 at 12:37 am #184288October 19, 2012 at 12:41 am #184291October 19, 2012 at 2:46 pm #184292
Connie, me too!!!!!!
And thanks so much for doing this!!!!October 19, 2012 at 5:17 pm #184293
This is just a thought… This could be done with the card swap if everyone agrees to this and that way it would be just like Christmas when you receive a card with a small gift with it. what you think?????? Like I said it was just a thought….October 19, 2012 at 9:17 pm #184294
I did it last year at another site and I drew someone inteationally it cost me 15.00 to ship! lol..I was shocked! That meant after the 10 dollar limit, which I went over because ..well you just do..and then the shipping I ended spending 30.00..that is rough when you are trying to buy Christmas and food for Christmas dinner.
I like the card idea a lot better, that way shipping cost won't eat us alive :o) I could afford a card :o)
