This swap has a commitment time of 6 months. This swap also requires constant communication to your Queens.

Princesses returning please be advised to all of the changes below. There will be quizes. Thank you.

How it works: All of the people who sign up must commit for the months of January through and including June of 2009. There will be 6 people per group.

Prerequisites to signing up: You must have successfully swapped with me before or have at least 2000 as your post status. If you do not then you must have a referral from someone who does. I am sorry if this sounds harsh but this swap is a very popular one for a reason. This swap is a high spoilage swap as well as one to get to know your fellow sb.com neighbors. There is no room for flaking in this swap.

Queen Swap terms:
Princesses = Are returning swappers to Queen or you have already been Queen on this current round
Lady in Waiting = You are new completely to the Queen Swap and have not been Queen yet this round.
Jester (luvscrapin)= We have one and is decreed by me.
Princess Cliffnotes (aumommie)= this person cliffnotes posts in one to keep everyone up to date in case you miss posts.
Royal Sexcatary (luvscrapin)= person who helps out the hostess in making notes, sending memos and the like.
Royal Guards (PrincessPosh, liveandbikn2, chipmunk_Tara, **SarahAnne**, Flossy) = Princesses not participating in anything but reamining order without the kingdoms, and the occasionally chatting too.

Rules:
1. On the 30th or 31st of each month I will draw a name of who our Queen for the next month will be. I will then PM you the Queen's personal info. This will occur around midnight my time. The announced Queen will then put the survey in their blogs marked as such. Each of the other 5 people have to shower their Queen with goodies from her survey and wishlist, NIP (no handmade) items unless an arrangement is made with your Queen in advance to maybe split something with your Queen. This is a spoilage swap, no sending of anything that is not on your Queens survey or wishlists no matter where those wishlists are. If you cannot find what your Queen desires in stores around by you, DO NOT improvise or assume your Queen will like something. You can always purchase a GC off the internet or at one of the stores your Queen lists she shops at. You can always PM your Queen for any questions regarding anything on her wishlists or survey.

2. Showering can be done in any manner you want: sending a little over a period of time, sending her items all at one time, etc. as long as the last mailing is dated by the 25th of each month. Please address the envelope or package "Queen" then the person's username so the reigning Queen will know what it is, and put your screen name in the return address spot.

3. The reigning Queen has to post when one of her minnions has showered her. Thank them publicly and state what they were showered with.

4. All Princesses and Ladies In Waiting will have to check in once every 2 days at least so we all know that you haven't forgotten about your Queen. If checking in is not occurring your chance for Queen reduces for the next month. IF you do not check in for two weeks in a row I will pm you once to see if you are still with us and if I get no answer then I will find a replacement for you. If you move during this swap please let me know your new mailing addy as soon as possible so that I can change this info on your personal info. Please be as detailed as possible in the PM title to me as you can.

All Queens like to be talked to. This thread moves quite fast and there is much communication going on between and amongst groups getting to know each other and their Queens.

5. I must have an email addy as well as a phone number as a way to get ahold of you. If there is any flaking on this thread then I will put your name on a flakers list that I personally own. This list is shared amongst fellow long standing hostesses and it has been known to also not allow a username to join a swap because of it. You will not be allowed to participate in this thread until all obligations are met to your Queens. I am sorry if this sounds harsh but due to circumstances occurring of late on the forum I must insist and run this game this way. This is a game of spoilage to your Queens, IT IS NOT FAIR to take your bounties and run w/o offering a bounty to your Queens in return and not follow through on the commitment that you are agreeing to by joining this swap.

6. There are going to be three threads for this swap. This one you are signing up on will be where all Queen biz (sending/receiving/gettin g to know each other) are done here. Once I pm you the Queens personal info, use that thread to be in cahoots with the other Princesses and Ladies in Waiting to coordinate your buying for your Queen. This is where a lot of getting to know your group will come in as well as enable all of you to either go in on something big for your Queen or at least not get the same items. The following link is for all chatting for Queen:
http://www.scrapbook.com/forums/showtopic.php?tid/13747...

7. I will be making HOSTESS ANNOUNCEMENTS (written in purple) that everyone must read. I also ask that nearing the end of each month all current Queens check the first page and let me know if I have recorded the bounties correctly.

Please PM me your personal info by Dec. 30th so I can get them all organized in time to call our Queen on January 1st once all New Years Destivities are over and PM her personal info to her minnions. Please put in the subject line "your username's Queen Personal Info". I have all posts emailed to me and I keep these in a file in my email account. Now is the time to get all wishlists created and updated. Once the Queen is crowned she will then put the Survey in her blog.

8. There is a Secret Pal Portion to this swap also. Participation is completely voluntary and lasts the full 6 months. The amount for this is $5.00 and is completely separate from Queen commitment. Djtobin (Darla) will be running this portion of our swap. Pm her if you are interested. She will pm you who you will have for a pal each month. Once you receive from your pal you have to post a thank you and tell who had you as well as what you received. We have a ton of girls who participate in this who are Princesses from previous rounds but are not in an actual group this round. Not this round

9. There will also be a Secret Santa Swap. The amount for this is 25.00 and is again completely separate from Queen commitment. I will let you knwo closer to the time of sign ups on this who will host that within this swap. Same rules apply to this as for Secret Monthly Pal. Not this round

Rule number 1,467,321: teasing the Queen about upcoming goodies will be strictly allowed and enforced! Any teasing of getting back amongst any current Queens is forbidden.

This Queen game limit is $15.00 per month. If you desire to go over, that is fine but under will be considered a no-no by the Queen and the proper disciplinary action shall be placed. If you find below a username you just wanna spoil then you are more then welcome to pm me your requests and sign up for as many spots as you want. I will try my best to honor all requests on who you'd like to be in a group with.

This is a commitment, please do not sign up and then once your month is over you quit. Please be considerate of everyone who signs up and think how you would feel if someone did that to you. Thank you!

ONE huge NO NO for this swap is buying for everyone in your group early at the start. Tnis is also why I am asking everyone to NOT put the survey in their blogs until you are announced Queen. All people in this swap are in other secret pal swaps, get presents and shops for themselves. If you buy early for everyone the likelihood of them already having or not wanting those items you bought runs very high. There have been some who have done this in the past and have regretted it. If anyone has any questions or does not believe me on this then please pm and talk to the Princesses returning. Thank you.

Quick Question, since I'm new w/ these.... do we come on here to find out who the queen is for this month??? And about what mandi said..... do we add a new avatar when we are queen? Just curious!! I'll learn fast- I promise!

I got the best christmas present ever from my boys (with help from my best friend .. sneaky woman). They gave me a gold chain necklace with a dragonfly charm. Dragonfly was my dd nickname for those that don't know. I also got a Titans jersey from my little boy's daddy. Both made the holiday a little better.

Hi girlies! Just wanted to pop in for a second and say hi
I really didn't get much for Christmas... My mom gave me my present a few weeks early (a new camera)... And I placed a CTMH order for myself from my husband. It kinda takes the fun out of it when there's no surprise. But regardless of my gifts, my kiddos had a great holiday and that's really all that matters!

Oh Robin!!!! Where are you??? I'm dying to know your news... Oh and maybe to know our groups and queenies!! (((maybe a little foot tapping here!)))

Hey Brooke --

Will my news hold you over until RObin gives hers???

Ok -- DH will be going to school for 3 months. We thought it was going to be April until June -- but in the great military way -- he will be leaving Jan 12th (right before my bday ) and coming back in March. Then there is talk he will be deploying in September -- but nothing is definite on that.

So I will be a single Mom for a few months. At leaszt the kids will be busy with school so hopefully it won't be too bad.

So there is my news -- Hope Robin's is better!!!

I'm really sorry girls I had a situation here.

HOSTESS ANNOUNCEMENT:

Welcome to all our new Ladies In Waiting. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Any one of my returning princesses will be able to answer it if I am not on.

A few things about me: I have been married 13 1/2 years to hubby Tom and have two sons Justin 11 and Jaeden 6. I'm a stay at home mom who also does the following:
advancements chairperson for cub scout troop
hubby is the den leader for the Tiger (our youngest) but I am the secretary, treasurer and events coordinator for the den
I am also going to school online right now
oldest is in the following:
indoor soccer
basketball
boy scouts
math club
band
youngest is in cub scouts (he's too young for most of the other things my oldest is in right now)


So I am and do many things. I also have to declutter my house, set up a work space for myself in the house, and hopefully get ready for a huge garage sale this spring.

I am also (this is the news) a DT for Studio G for Pezadoodle. You know those cute little dollar mini stamp sets, yep I am a DT with them for Pezadoodle. Cannot give website here as per board rules and

I have many things going on in my life and home is not very good either and I'll leave it at that. So I have a feeling I'll have many changes upcoming this year in my life and hopefully find some peace along the way finally.

With all of that being said I am not on here as often as I was before. I used to be here everyday on and off. Now it seems that isn't possible so if you ever have to pm me for anything please know I'll get back to you but it might not be immediately.

I have much to be thankful for in my princesses who have taken on a lot for me this past round. Thank you. I so appreciate your friendship, it has kept me going for awhile now.

Okay ladies with all of that being said I think its time to announce the Queens for January 2009.

Please welcome with royal fanfare the following Queens:

Group 1: Princess Brooke2916
Group 2: Princess Fairytattoo
Group 3: Princess aumommie

Now in the rules it states that there will be 6 people per group. Due to the economy and many circumstances several princesses have been through we only have 3 groups of 5 this round. So each group will have 5 girls making one month a free month but no group will know which month their free month will be but I will say that no two groups will have a free month simultaneously.

Isn't this fun?

Okay now what happens now is that the Queens will put in their blogs the survey from the front page. I will start cahoots threads for each queen with the girls in her group who will then cahoot on what they'd like to shower their Queen with and the many ways of teasing. (I did NOT say that and will deny it) Many groups pitch in together to get their Queen something huge from their wishlist, wishlists do not have to be to here. Read their surveys then head to their wishlists. That is generally what I do, and then I hunt for the best prices with my shopping for the best deals ways. I tend to have coupon codes and know the sales. I'm just kinda like that. More for the buck so to speak. But anyways in the cahoots thread is where you decide all that, separate packages, group gift etc.

Also many groups will start a chat pm so that all girls in the group participate to get to know each other better.

Okay now I'm rambling.

Please make sure all packages to your Queen are properly packaged and addressed to Queen such and such. We want everyone to know their handling royal packages. And mailed by the 25th of the month.

Okay off to start cahoots threads. Happy shopping, cahooting and teasing (now again I did NOT say that)

We did not gifts for ourselves this year, we decided it was for the kids, as that is what Christmas is all about...

I have a question....

I know this was discussed in another round but I just wanted to get clarification...

Can we hand make a gift for our queen as long as it does not take away from the dollor limit of gifts from her wishlist?

For instance, lets say I've purchased all kinds of fun Queenly gifts from my queens wishlist, but I wanted to add a special little something else from me. Is that okay? I would still abide by all Queen Laws under purchasing requirements and keep in consideration the queens color intrests and such. Just wondering!!

Brooke, I'm pretty sure we decided that was OK as long as it's above and beyond the dollar limit.

Alrighty my princesses, my wishlist is up to date and my blog is done...yay!!
