Hello Everyone! I am going to be hosting a Christmas swap. I am opening it to $25.00 level and $75.00 level...wish list scrapping stuff and surprises. The levels of money DO NOT include shipping costs. You MUST spend at the very least the amount that you sign-up for. Do not send in
items based on retail price, only what you paid for the items. If you get a big sale on items, pass those on to your sister! Remember that every body who participates wants to receive great items as well. Please do your best and treat your pal as you would want to be treated!

SWAP INFORMATION:
I will take sign-ups until the places or filled or October 15, whichever comes first then I will pass out your Christmas pal shortly after. You will have a month and 1/2 to shop for your sister and packages need mailed by the end of November.

Items sent out must be new, in original package.

EVERYONE IS REQUIRED TO CHECK IN ONCE A WEEK! This is a very expensive swap and I am trying to make sure nobody who participates gets flaked on! Do not sign up if you won't complete it. I am only accepting people I know from previous swaps or people who have at least 1000 posts.

All Christmas gifts must be wrapped up in Christmas paper and postmarked by November 30, 2011

As part of this swap, you can send your sister a card, a pm, some surprises in the mail before the final package. It isn't required to do that, but it is nice! It makes it a lot of fun too.

I will add more details about everything when it gets closer to giving out Christmas pals. I am just doing the basic rules and information for now.

To sign up, please pm me the following information:

Name:
Screen Name:
Address:
Phone number (not to be given out but for my own information only to make sure everything is going okay)
List of goodies you'd like to receive.
Which price group are you signing up for(25.00 or 75.00)
Are you willing to send out of country?
Candy or snack food preferences?
Favorite color?
Anything you would like that isn't scrapping stuff?

Thank you girls! I did this once and it was so much fun!

Yay! I got you girls added to the first post. make sure you let me know what level you want in at or if you want in at both levels. We have plenty of time, so you can think about it and decide later!

See you girls!

And to make sure everyone feels comfortable, to ones with fewer than 1000 posts, they have to send to me at the beginning of November (instead of the end) and have me confirm receipt of their gifts BEFORE any gifts go out to them. That way, everyone is protected. I will send out the gifts from there and make sure everyone gets a Christmas gift! Does that work for everyone?

Hello ladies. I extended the sign-ups for this swap until October 15. Hope everyone is okay with that.

I wanted to remind everyone involved that it is a requirement to check in every single week! If you miss a week, I will pm you and if there is no response, I will remove you from this swap and switch partners around. Please don't make me do that! I would much rather have all who signed up complete the swap, have fun, and give and receive amazing Christmas goodies! A lot of you are like me: I have a wonderful husband who enjoys spoiling me with Christmas/holiday gifts, but when it comes to buying scrapbooking items, he is lost! Only another scrapbooker knows what to buy for a fellow scrapper!

Hi ladies,
I love this time of year too, mostly the decorating.
Halloween is my DH favorite holiday. We always have tons of fun stuff to give away to the kiddos, cider and adult beverages for the parents.
We order pizza and people hang out after they are done going door to door.
