Welcome to the Christmas Secret Pal Swap A.K.A. The Secret Santa Swap

RULES/GUIDELINES:

1. If you sign up for this swap you will receive one secret pal.

2. You must check into this thread at least once a week. Communication is vital in this swap!

3. 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

4. Please complete the questionnaire below and pm it to me before the swap begins. This will give your SP an idea of what to give you. All new items and something from your pals wish list is a must. Please let me know if there is someone you’re just itching to have as your pal and who you’ve already had so I can pair you up with someone new.

5.When I pm you with your pal I will give you our secret sign in so that you can chat with your pal without spoiling the surprise. Feel free to create your own secret sign in.

6. The limit for this swap is $20. If you want to spoil your pal by going over the limit feel free but it is NOT required. All new items and something from your pals wish list is a must. You may create handmade items but they are not included in the $20 min. This is a Christmas swap and that means something Christmassy!! Either a stocking filled with the goodies or an ornament.

7. Feel free to mail any packages (prior to Dec 10th) to the hostess to ensure that your pal remains surprised! Please include postage on the outgoing package. I will give you my address for mailing out packages when I give you your pals.

8. Secret pals will mail directly to their pals no later than Dec 10th and then the big reveal! When you receive from your pal, post it on the thread but DO NOT REVEAL who they are to the participants. We want to reveal about the same time. Reveal date to be announced.

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

10. Have fun, be creative and KEEP IT A SECRET!
Have fun, chat, share lo's, anything goes in this thread. But remember, keep those lips zipped after you know your SP!

Remember sending a little something before the big package is a lot of fun for both you and your pal. Here is the list, just to give you an idea. You DON'T have to do this...just some ideas! Remember, it doesn't have to be scrap stuff. You will be able to fit a TON of different things into a regular card envelope (to save on postage), such as key chains, postcards, etc.

Send a card.
Type a letter. Be sneaky and devious.
You write a message to your secret pal, then break up the pieces and wrap them up. Your secret pal has to put it together.
Small votive candle wrapped in pretty fabric
A card in the snail mail - Everyone feels good about getting mail that isn’t a bill
Fresh cut flowers
Nail polish and a file
Book
Box of specialty tea or coffee
Picture frames
Basket of relaxing bath things
Coffee mug of individually wrapped candies
New journal with nice pen

Please have to me by Wed. Oct. 6th. (due to the late start)Pm to Baby2thousnd

The spirit of Christmas is alive and well but sometimes it may seem to be diminishing a bit, so I ask you to view this youtub cast and remember the meaning of Peace!

You know ladies, that ELF is based on a true story! Buddy was one of my favorite elfs. He and his wife still stop by with the kids. I may have to take a little break this season to see the Broadway show of ELF. Oh what a treat that would be. Ho ho ho........

I think it's time for some trivia questions. Are you ready??????

As a child you could never get close to Santa Claus because you suffered from pogonophobia. Did you have an unnatural fear of: (a) the smell of reindeer; (b) beards; or (c) shopping mall photographers?

Shana, Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy!!!! I know that my MIL loves to cook and Thanksgiving is her favorite holiday. I think we will be having 3 Thanksgivings this year, one with my MIL, Thanksgiving day at my Sisters in Ny and One at my house with my other sister and mom. My son is supper excited, he just likes to eat the food. lol

Tay, I know, I think everything should be celebrated!!!! What fun we would have if we lived closer together!!!!

Mandi, Those cookies sound yummy!!!

I think I am going to try to make a home made pumpkin pie from the pumpkin its self this year, with home made whip cream. I have always wanted to try it and now I will! lol

I can remember my mom making pumpkin pie from scratch it was a long process. first cutting up the pumpking, boiling it then blending it. She also use to make her own bread crumbs for the dressing. It was a 3-4 day process to make everything to go with dinner and then all day on Thanksgiving in the kitchen. Lots of work but the house always smelled wonderfull. Today I will make the pies and fresh rolls then tomorrow will be everything else. I use canned pumpkin but add all my own spices and stuff. Renee for the whipping cream I have Whipping cream despencer. All I have to do is put the whipping cream in added icing sugur, shake attach the CO2 canister and chill. No whipping for me. I love it use it for whipping cream all the time and when I use to drink coffee that is what I would put on top now it goes on top of hot chocolate.

No THAT sounds YUMMY!
I LOVE this time of year! I LOVE the colors, the smells, the flavors! Most of all I LOVE it because it means CHRISTMAS is right around the corner!!!!
I made my own pumpkin pie from the pumpkin when I was in 4-H. It was fun but quite a bit of work!
I agree we should celebrate everything! How fun!

You know-- I should read people's signatures more, too

Have a great weekend everyone!
We are going to work on the house some more-- trying to get ready for carpet-- hopefully we will be able to move in before Christmas--

I have 6 ppl coming so that will make a total of 12 ppl I am cooking for and yes I am cooking everything. I LOVE to cook especially for groups of ppl. I grew up with a house full of friends every holiday. We were a military family so move around the country alot. I never really got to know my grandparents and extended family they were always to far away to visit.

Sounds like fun!! I love to cook as well though it seems over the years with marriages and new additions that the celebratuions have gotten smaller with each family staying at home or making the rounds

Shana, that is awesome. I didn't even know that such a thing even excisted. I just use my MI
L's Kitchenaid mixer to make it in. No hand mixing here. But this year will be alot of hand mixing. I don't have a mixer and really want one bad. (We just moved into our first home in June so we need to get alot of things yet. lol) I was spoiled with my MIL's cooking Toys. lol

I used to love pumpkin pie when I was little but then the texture really got to me and I couldn't eat it. but recently I have been craving it.
The recepie that I have seems to be pretty simple. If it is any good when I do make it, I'll post it.

Terri, Oh I hope that you will be in your new home by Christmas!! What an exciting time for you!!!!! (and stressful too)

Is anyone around for another Trivia Question? I'll wait to see if there are a few of you here first.

I eat 1000 calories or less a day and exercise 30 minutes. I also drink from 60 to 80 ounces of water a day

Ho Ho Ho...... Taysha,
I see that you have been having troubles sleeping. Have you tried counting Reindeer? That usually works for me but then Rouldolph comes along with his shinny red nose that is so bright that it wakes me back up again, so maybe you should stick to sheep. I also see that you have been a very good girl this year. You are one of my star examples when I talk to all the elfs about the good girls and boys. Is there anything that you really want that is not on your wish list here at SB.com?

Good evening boy this little one keeps me hopping lol. 6 months and she still refuses the bottle but we are working on eating solids which she is fighting every step of the way. looking forward when sleep time will not consist of crying as loud as she can for a good 10 min. She would cry longer if I let her but after that time she is ready to nurse and fal asleep, LOL. Glad this is the last one I am getting to old for this LOL.

morning.
Shana, good luck with the transition to bottles. That can be a stressfull time for you and the little one. I just have the 2 boys and that is alot of work, but atleast it gets better as they get older. (in some ways that is. The worries change as they grow and we will always worry about our babies no matter how big or old they are!)

Tell me about it I have one that is in grade 11 so I get to deal with all the teenage drama. LOL my son is in grade 8 and starts high school next year, man I am old LOL Well she did eat about a Tablespoon of fruit for me this morning then nursed and nap so it is getting a little easier for me and hopefully this will put her on a better schedule which means more rest. Why did I start all over again ... OH I love kids lol. But now I am done I will just watch other ppls kids from now on.
