Hi there!

Let me see if I understood the rules correctly. I just want to make sure that if I join I'll follow it to the "T".

-The limit is $10 but I can go over if I want to right?

-The due date is July 13th? Do I need to send to my secret sister before then or there is another date? I'm confused on this part. I also understand that I need to send directly to my secret sister instead of the host right?

-All I have to do to join is PM you my name and addy and the completed survey and then I will receive from you the name and survey from my secret sister?

Also, I know that once I sent my package I need to post it here for tracking purposes with a picture of course and also know that I need to JCI once a week at least. Now a quick question, is this a monthly swap or if I join this month and then can't join for the following can I opt out?

The due date is the only date and it has to be to your on or before then and you will be sending it directly to her. Sometimes we order everything and have it sent straight to her to save on double shipping.

You don't need to post of pic of the package that you send, just the package that you receive from your sister. You do post that you have sent it out though. This is a monthly swap and you can sit out any month that you want. You are only obligated to the month that you say you are in for.



Pam, I hope you don't mind me answering her questions. Let me know if I got anything wrong.

Hey Auntie P...lol!!

Wow we got some new names great. GIGIGI30 we won't be sorry you joined. Yes our limit is $10 but most of us go over. You will get your secret pals name via PM from me. We don't tell anyone who we have, but make sure the package has your name on it when you ship it so she knows who sent it to her. Then your pal will post a picture of the items you sent her. We just ask that you post that you sent your package out on here but don't mention to whom. I try to keep track of when sent and recvd their packages. Then I update the 1st page. Any questions please ask someone here will answer you. Or if you want you can call me directly. Just let me know and I will PM you my home number.

I went to a scrapbook convention/sale I went nuts. Now I have to put it all to use. I iwsh I would have known who my next pal would be because I could have shopped more.

Most secret sisters I have had DO NOT stick to the $10.00 limit. I know I don't. I try to go by their wish list and get them a few nice things from their list and it's always quite a bit over the $10.00. Maybe the limit should be raised?????? Just thinking that if all of us spend more then new people signing up would know that up front. Just a thought......

I have been in several swaps where I have spent more and have received less and vice-versa. I usually end of feeling either guilty or taken advantage of. The last swap I was in (not on this site) I sent around $25 worth of goodies and received about $10. I NEVER know what to do.

I've been through that as well, but I've learned to just do what's in my heart regardless of what I get in return. Sometimes it's not about how much was spent, BUT what was bought! I have more fun that way!

YAY Ellen im sooooo glad to see you here!!!!

Yay, Yay YAY! If I get you as a pal or vise versa I know we'll both be spoiled I pray I get a decent pal this time, the last 2 secret pals were no good

So far it looks like a faithful good group YAY YAY YAY!!!

Cant wait to see whom my pal is, shes gonna get it. I have a deep urge to love on someone :P

PJ Im sooo greatful for your wishlist rule!!! I do usually fall off the list ONLY after getting what my pal wants off her list. I chat with my pal so much I find other things she might want but didnt see on sb.com, or may have never thought about LOL! But ALWAYS something pal says she wants BEFORE I buy ... never throw in extra "stash" because I wouldnt want that being done to me!!

I also think it evens out in the end. Some people just can't afford to spend a lot, but still want to participate. I'm happy with whatever I get. I feel I have made friends on here that I would not have made otherwise and that means as much to me as material items. When I look through forums and see the names of people that I have swapped with here, I always stop to see what's up. If someone from here is hosting a swap, I check in to see if it's something I could do and join in.

Some will spend around that amount and others will spend more. It's really up to you and what you can afford. You don't need to feel guilty if someone spends more on you than you sent. If you stick with the swap each month, it will even out. Just have fun and do what you can. Hopefully everyone else will do the same.

I am in again of course. Sassie you need to pm your survey to the hostess so she can send it on to your SS later I have been in this swap for I believe at least a year if not longer LOL and I go way over the limit as my pals can attest too. Plus we tend to have the same ladies join up every month so we get to know one another well too. Hey EllenBee nice to see you join us here, great bunch of ladies in the core group! Welcome to all the new names.

We don't have to buy off the wish list, Sassie. It's there for ideas, although many of us do. Part of the fun is putting little surprises in the packages.

Most of us put a little something "extra" in the packages that is not on the list. Getting the little surprises is part of the fun. There is no hard and fast rule that we HAVE to buy off the wish list.

ABSOLUTLY Gosh, doesnt everyone else If so toooo bad, I posted 1st so I get all the pals & ALL the cash (Neeeener) I did post it to the hostess after I posted it here :X My mistake but Im leaving it there so everyone can see all the goodies I like all day long An, they can see im spoiled, and i like LOTS of stuff!!! :0)

What if i want to send a RAK to someone, but I dont know what they want?? Well this way if everyone puts it up here, everyone will know. Maybe there will be a abundance of cards and the card holder likes to know more about you to match you with a card? OR what if someone wanted me as a partner, and didnt get me (awwwe how sad) they can still send me presents I dont mind :P

Happy Day's Ladys!!

OH, well I thought that was part of the rules? I dont want someone going off mine just thinking I like something I dont have listed, because if its not listed I probably dont want it. *Ugh*

Id so rather get only 1 gift if my pal does only spend 10.00, then 10 $1 items i wont use.

WOW the list is growning.

Sassie the wish list is just ot help others buy things you like. Some of us shop off the wish list like me and others try to buy something like that. We all get things we don't always want or use. But I put them in my box and believe me I have used them somewhere along the line in either my scrapbook or my cards. My girldfriend came over here 1 day and she is a big time scrapbook person she was amazed at the stuff I had and she found something she needed in my boxes of goodies and I gave it to her. She was thrilled.

So on here we don't complain about what we get. My mother use to say if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. Bite your lip.

I have never gotten anything bad on here. It has built up my stash to WOW and BEYOND. Friends can't believe the stuff I have.

Remember ladies this is suppose to be fun lets not spoil it. I have done this for way too long to stop it or have people drop out. Because that ain't gonna happen. The spoiler will be gone just like my flakers.

Some good news to start off the long weekend. Current test results show my cancer is still in remission. I am doing a happy dance and so is my family. We are going to celebrate by going to Lubec, Maine for the long weekend. Have a good one everyone and I will check in when I get back. There is no internet connection up there. The sun may rise there first in the U.S., but that's about all that's first. LOL

Pam... you really are an angel to keep this swap going over such a long time. It makes me sad that ladies flake or gripe. "Paper therapy" ( my name for all the fun I have with card making) IS a source of pleasure and fun. I bet every one of us has had hardships but we don't come to this swap to complain... we come to share and enjoy and provide smiles to each other. I am always happy to get the swap package in the mail. It is fun to get items I have never tried because it allows me to give a new and fresh idea to my hobby. So very happy for pwiswell ( is that the correct name... I hope) to get the word that you are in remission. I hope you are doing the happiest of all happy dances. Wishing all a weekend of activities or family that bring comfort and joy to you.

Well said Pam and pinkpaperairedale, I really enjoy this swap and being from Canada there are things sent to me that I have never seen before. I have come to really enjoy the brand The Paper Studio, which I understand is found at HL which is not in Canada. Plus with the fact my local LSS is closing in June I will have no way of getting Prima, Doodlebug or Graphic 45 and other unique items except here or from online shopping. But dont worry ladies, whoever my pal is I always shop from sb.com and have it shipped right to you so it is always something off your wishlist!

This is my first time with this swap and I can't wait. I'm so looking forward to shopping my favorite way - one for you, two for me....
The more I buy for pal, the more I get. It's a win/win situation.

Hello everyone. It's been a nice relaxing weekend. It sure helped that the sun was out and it was warm. We spent a lot of time walking the beach and just spending time with family. Hope you all had a good long weekend as well.

JCI.... good to see a bunch of gals giving this a try. I have enjoyed everything I ever received. It stretched me as a creator to use things I received that I had never tried. I can't wait to find out who my pal is.

I try to put lots of things in my wishlist that are under the $10 minimum. It's hard to shop for someone when everything they ask for is way over the minimum. I usually spend a minimum of $25 but feel uncomfortable when someone only asks for things that are $20,30, or more. This is only my opinion...one time, I added some recent magazines to the new items I was sending. I knew the magazines were "used" by me. I didn't want the recipient to think the items were part of the swap but as long as I was paying for a flat rate package, I put them in. Perhaps on the August swap, a question about magazines could be added. Something like... Do you subscribe to any craft magazines? Would you like to receive any that are fairly new? Just an idea. Pam does such a superior job of updating the survey and asking such pertinent questions.

Pink, I am so glad that you and a few other gals have given more info about this swap. As a novice to this swap I actually thought that it was limited to $10 + shipping. Does anyone ever add a few handmade items - like flowers etc or die cuts? Or some vintage things like sheet music etc?

That's a good idea pinkpaperairedale. I certainly wouldn't mind getting a magazine that someone else has looked at. If I don't have it, I'd enjoy it. This is a fun swap and a great group of ladies. I think most of us have things on our wishlist that are well under the limit. And, even if they don't, it's great to use to get ideas of what to buy someone. I buy some stuff off the wish list and then use that and their survey to get "surprises" to send as well.

I agree. I don't subscribe to any mags (at least not yet) and haven't spent the funds to buy any to try them out. Getting one in the swap would be great.
I also would not mind receiving handmade items, sheet music, vintage items, etc.

oh I love old magazines, my mom and friend give me their architectural digest, better homes, travel, sunset, food mags. The colors on the pages are what I look for. I then take the pages that I would use to punch out with my paper punches. Me and my daughter do it while watching cartoons Saturday's in bed. Then sort by color into baggies. They are then, ready to use on cards or pages. Butterfly is really cool you can glue two together back to front, then take two of those and glue to floss or string in a square window on a card. It is beautiful. I will post one later today.

Correct I have not given all names out as yet. I am still waiting on a few surveys. I may have the names for all on Saturday....

As for send an old magazine to someone. I will put that on the next survey...

most people enjoy receiving a digit stamp or a few stamped images add it as a surprise if you like...but please no USED products. EX: Inks, glitter or markers.

I always feel bad when someone doesn't get their package on time. We all love getting stuff in the mail. Sure hope you all get your packages very soon. Waiting for my pal's to come to me so I can add more stuff to it. I just love love love sending packages as much as receiving them. Have a good weekend everyone. it's going to rain on the east coast so looks like a good scrapping weekend. My husband wants sun so we can do outside work. I didn't tell him I've been doing the rain dance.....lol

Thanks but I have only been flaked on once and it takes time to get to Canada. If my pal sends out the package 2 weeks before it is due then I will most likely get it on time but if they had to order it first and then send it out it takes a bit longer. I am lucky because for my pals I order stright from here with their wishlist and ship direct. You guys cant do that unless you want to pay shipping cost that are more then the gift you are sending. This place has very HIGH shipping cost to Canada. If it helps I will start including a link to a different wishlist with instructions on how to ship from there as their cost are very resonable to ship to Canada.

Each round we receive a different partner, in this way it even things out well. I enjoy it because I get to see all the different wishlists and maybe add things to mine that I never thought of before. With my LSS closing the only place to shop here is M's so the only way to get alot to get alot of the products on my wishlist is through these swaps

Ladies,I am a bit confused. How many rounds are there? As a newbie I thought this was a one time swap. I didn't realize I was signing up for more than one swap. Please can someone tell me what is expected of me? I definitely want to participate in a one time swap and hope that it will be possible. Hugs
