*Welcome to the Secret Sisters Swap!
Kimberly (thinkpink22) and I will be co-hosting this swap again~and it to be so much fun each and every round!
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 Kimberly 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 October 1st.
3. When sign-ups are closed (8:00 PM September 24), Kimberly 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 December 15, 2010 and shortly after we will host a reveal party here online!
9. Never hesitate to pm me or Kimberly if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS. Kimberly and I are here to help you!
10. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than: October 10, November 10th, and December 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, Kimberly 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:
Phone number (This will not be given out, but is for my records in case something happens to you)
Do you collect anything?
List of things you would like to receive (as an addition/alternative to things 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 Kimberly 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!
