*Welcome to the Secret Sisters Swap!
Rosita and I will be co-hosting this swap again~and it 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 myself 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 January 1st, 2011.

3. When sign-ups are closed (December 30),
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 March 15, 2011...you should reveal who you are to your sister on that date here on this thread.

9. Never hesitate to pm Rosita or me 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: January 10, February 10, and March 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
Birthday
Do you collect anything?
Favorite snack
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 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!

1. Rosita (Betsye Rose)*
2. Thinkpink22 (Kimberly) *

Well, you know girls, I would love to do this again. I love you all so much!!!! However I just think I need to sit this one out, and just stop by everyday to bug you.
Not sure right now how things are going to go financially so I need to keep every dime I can. At least I don't have to worry about running out of scrappy supplies.

How about some humor!

Santa Must be a Woman

The Truth, as We All Know . . . . . . .

I think Santa Claus is a woman....I hate to be the one to defy a sacred myth, but I believe he's a she. Think about it. Christmas is a big, organized, warm, fuzzy, nurturing social deal, and I have a tough time believing a guy could possibly pull it all off!

For starters, the vast majority of men don't even think about selecting gifts until Christmas Eve. Once at the mall, they always seem surprised to find only Ronco products, socket wrench sets, and mood rings left on the shelves. On this count alone, I'm convinced Santa is a woman.

Surely, if he were a man, everyone in the universe would wake up Christmas morning to find a rotating musical Chia Pet under the tree, still in the bag.

Another problem for a he-Santa would be getting there. First of all, there would be no reindeer because they would all be dead, gutted and strapped to the rear bumper of the sleigh amid wide-eyed, desperate claims that buck season had been extended. Blitzen's rack would already be on the way to the taxidermist.

Even if the male Santa DID have reindeer, he'd still have transportation problems because he would inevitably get lost up there in the snow and clouds and then refuse to stop and ask for directions.

Other reasons why Santa can't possibly be a man:

* Men can't pack a bag.
* Men would rather be dead than caught wearing red velvet.
* Men would feel their masculinity is threatened...having to be seen with all those elves.
* Men don't answer their mail.
* Men would refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything remotely resembling a "bowlful of jelly."
* Men aren't interested in stockings unless somebody's wearing them.
* Having to do the Ho Ho Ho thing would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women.
* Finally, being responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.

I can buy the fact that other mythical holiday characters are men.........
* Father Time shows up once a year unshaven and looking ominous - definite guy.
* Cupid flies around carrying weapons.
* Uncle Sam is a politician who likes to point fingers.

Any one of these individuals could pass the testosterone screening test.

But not St. Nick. Not a chance.

Great LO's Rebecca..

Traci.. hope you have a safe trip.. Looks like Alex picked out the perfect gifts for you! So happy that you got to skype with your husband, it has to be tough not being able to see him every day!

Have fun Dana!

I've started to clean up my Christmas 'mess' and putting my dining room back together.. which is also my scrap room. I'm hoping to make it more of a dining room & scrap room instead of just taking over the dining room with scrapping stuff. Ha! I've moved a few things around and plan to move some desks around too.. There is just not enough room!!

I am still sitting here enjoy my Christmas mess, well except for what dh cleaned up. Missy was so funny this year opening her presents. She got into tearing the paper off her toys, but then she has been practicing tear my scrap papers from my trash.
i still have my trees up and will take them down after New Year's Day. My Christmas dinnerware is still out on the dining room, and it is so pretty. I want to enjoy it all as long as I can.

Nothing to tell really, i answered an online personal add and we've exchanged a few e.mails and texts and he called me last night. He isn't looking for a relationship, and I'm fine with that. I've decided I'm going to wait about five years before getting into a serious relationship. I just need to 'get out there' and date around.

You are too sweet. I've been widowed for over twelve years, what's another 5? If I wait that long, then the kids will maintain a stable environment, and I won't have a man messing up the hard work I've put into raising them.

Rosita - 5 years? are you off your rocker girlfriend? if you've already waited 12, why even wait another ONE??? your kids are old enough that it's unlikely some guy would screw it up! and quite frankly, it sets a bad precedent for your children, and I speak as the child of a broken home. kids can get a little too cocky and self-serving, and get TOO used to the parents being at their beck and call, and makes it even more resentful when some guy enters the picture. and don't think just because by then they'll be older and more "mature" that it'll make a darn bit of difference! they resort right back to childish antics!

Oh Rosita dear.... there will always be an impact on anyone that comes into your life... I thought dating a man that has already raised his children would make it easier.. it doesn't. There are always things that need worked out. Think of the influence that having a man in your life could bring to your children.. ex: seeing you in a happy relationship and working on things that aren't perfect.. then they can learn what it's like also to work at 'love' relationships.. jus sayin..

But Rosita's kids are really awesome and very polite kids.
When we return from the Dec retreat, we were helping her take her stuff inside and she begged us not to look at her messy house for she has been working so much and hadnt clean. We walked in before she did, her kids told us not to tell her, let her be surprised. They had cleaned the house spotless, rearrange the livingroom for room for the Christmas tree, decorated the whole house. She cried when she came in the house. Her kids are so thoughtful and sweet. I am thinking about taking Bug with me to see her and leaving Bug with her so she can make her like her daughter.

Not much to tell. We met at O'Charley's and sat and talked for about 3 hours. But I did get a text this morning that he hopes to see of again soon.
