*Welcome to the Secret Sisters Swap!
Rosita and I will be co-hosting this swap again~and I hope it continues to be so much fun each and every round!

RULES/GUIDELINES:

1. In order to join this swap, you must have 1000 posts or be a sister with us already in good standing, or have another swap member that will vouch for you. If you don't have these things, contact Rosita or me and we will decide. We want new people to sign up and have fun in our swap, but since this is a 25.00 minimum, we have to make sure everyone who participates will complete the swap! Thank you for understanding!

2. This swap will begin on July 1.

3. When sign-ups are closed (probably around June 20), Rosita and I will send each participant the name and information of your LITTLE sister.

4. This swap has a MINIMUM of $25.00. You are required to spend at least that amount EACH month on your swap partner for three months NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING COSTS!

5. You would not put your name on the package/envie so you will remain a secret. It's a good idea to use a family members name as the return address, a trusted neighbor, or you can put your hubby to good use and use his name! You can also order directly from sb.com and tell them that the gift is for a secret sister swap and they will block out your name and information for you.

6. You can look up your partners profile to get some ideas of what to send. They have also been instructed to update their wish list.

7. You must check into this thread at least once a week as your real self and once a week as your alternate secret sister ID. Communication is vital in this swap because the purpose of this swap is to get to know your fellow swappers! You'll get more out of this swap the more you post, and your ss can get more ideas as to what to send you.

8. Secret sisters will end on September 15, 2010 and shortly after we will host a reveal party here online!

9. Never hesitate to pm me or Rosita if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS. Rosita and I are here to help you!

10. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than: July 10, August 10th, and September 10th. That should give the package time to arrive before end of the month.

11. Have fun, chat, share lo's, anything goes in this thread!

12. You must have at least 1000 posts in order to sign up. If you have fewer than that, Rosita and I will need to pre-approve you joining. If you have flaked on this swap, don't bother joining. You will be removed.

13. To sign up, send me a PM with this information:
Screen Name
Name
Address
Email address
Phone number (This will not be given out, but is for my records in case something happens to you)
Birthday
Do you collect anything?
Favorite snack
List of things you would like to receive (or a link to your wishlist which you will keep updated).
Are you willing to send to an international sis this round???

Secret Sister Basics:

1) Create an additional ID to log on to sb.com (so you can communicate with your ss on the thread and send PMs, etc.)You do have to contact your sister on this thread AT LEAST once a WEEK (preferably more!) A good idea is to post when you mail out a package and "tease" them about some of the goodies included!

2) Send a card. (a snail mail card or an e-card are always great to receive!)

3) Type a letter or note to your sis. Be sneaky and devious.

4) Remember, it doesn't have to be scrap stuff only but should include some scrap stuff too!

*****Also, I must reiterate: DO NOT SIGN UP for this swap unless you are prepared to make a commitment to it. People have had their feelings hurt in the last swap, and I do not want to see that happen again. If something happens during the swap that affects your ability to keep participating, please contact Rosita or myself...we both just want EVERYONE to enjoy this swap, get to know each other, and enjoy spoiling someone and getting spoiled in return!

I hope this round goes as well as the last ones have because we have just had a blast the entire time! Feel free to talk, laugh, cry, share, and especially spoil your little sis!

Ummmm, are you too busy to even say anything my co-hostess with the most-est???????

does the smile mean you are interested in knowing who has you last round ...or does it mean you are going to tell me who has me as soon as the round starts???? Or does it mean that you would like to have us both KNOW who our sisters are the entire round this time??? Oh, I think I'm liking this smile!

Hi Ladies,

I'm new to all of this but I am soooo excited to join the secret sister swap! I remember my mom doing something similar for her church group and it was always a big event when something would arrive in the mail or be dropped off. I can't wait to meet all of you.....this site has so many great people and ideas.
Thanks for letting me join in the fun.

Tres

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited that I am going to be apart of this group. I love Secret Sisters.
I am a Secret Sister at my church, and left something for my Secret Sister tonight. Sometimes its something really simple, but the meaning behind it, and then a biggie comes in.

I am looking forward to getting to know you all. If you don't hear from me hardly next week it because I will be at the beach. I promise to catch up as soon as I get back home.

These three months is a wonderful time to do SS.

Tres - My Mother was a SS when I was a little girl too. I thought how fun and couldnt wait until I got older so I could do it too.

Kimberly - Thanks for adding me.

Lynnde & Sue - Two I know for much love from the challenges.

Suzi

I was thinking about doing but since THAT's against the rules...

Yes, I'm interested in knowing who has me...She's been a great SS. With that being said, DO NOT CALL AND TELL ME! I'll find out when I receive the last package or when we do the final reveal.

And no, I'm not going to tell you as soon as the round starts! Those darn dead spots will protect me.

Speaking of Kimberly's big sister...if you're willing to be sneaky and conniving and think you're smart enough to throw her off your scent, send me a PM!
