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 Debbie 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 each month for three months, we have to make sure everyone who participates will complete the swap! Thank you for understanding!

2. This swap will officially begin on July 1 , 2012.

3. When sign-ups are closed (June 30),
Debbie and I will send each participant the name and information of your LITTLE sister sometime on July 1

4. This swap has a MINIMUM of $25.00 each month. You are required to spend at least that amount EACH month on your swap partner for three months NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING COSTS! Please remember BEFORE joining that this swap requires THREE boxes to be shipped out to your one partner (one a month)

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. I want all of us to have a wonderful time this round. Remember that everyone enjoys feeling spoiled and having someone in the swap make them feel special by leaving notes.

8. Secret sisters will end at the end of September...you should reveal who you are to your sister on that date here on this thread.

9. Never hesitate to pm Debbie or I if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS.

10. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than: July 30, August 30, and September 30. Each package will always contain scrapbooking goodies but can also include other goodies as well!

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, Debbie and I will need to pre-approve you joining. If you have flaked on this swap or not followed the rules before, don't bother signing up.

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).
What would you love to get that is NOT scrapbook related?

Hello Deb!

Well, about me? Im have no humans, 2 adopted cat's & an adopted African Grey Parrot. I also have found my soul mate after 39 years of life (smile) We just celebrated out 1 year anniversary on June 21st.

I love movies, altering things, creating weird art, creating Canvas & mixed Media arts. Im not a "typical" scrapbook er but I love art in general no matter which factor really.

I really dis-like fighting, drama & being mean. I am a very caring, loving, happy person. I speak my mind, I cant hold my tongue & Im protective of my friends or anyone I care about.

I love making people happy, bringing a smile to another's face is what I strive for in life. Now that I feel like I filled out a Looking for love survey LOL I am going to finish up the questions here & get to creating something

Imelda, really??? You love being pregnant? I've heard people say that before, but mostly in the movies so I've never gotten to ask this question. What the 4@!! do you love about being pregnant? I've always wondered that. Now I have a real life subject I can ask it to. LOL!!!

Rebecca, have a blast!!! I hope you can check in with us. I don't know if I can go a whole week without seeing your beautiful face. Just text me a picture once in awhile of you having fun!!!

Laura, it's great to know a few things about you!! That's so sweet that you found your soul mate, true love.

I'm having computer issues, the program that merged both halves of a scanned LO doesn't work w/my printer now. Taking pics w/my camera doesn't work because when I chose the pic in the gallery browse it turns it sideways! What program do y'all use?

So, Deb, I too loved being pregnant. My hair was great. I had no morning sickness. It was just nice. I would love to have had many kids, but I was 38 when I had DS and he was born with hand differences, so we decided not to have more kids. So I just throw all my energy (or what remains) into DS.

No we weren't able to do anything, but we will when Im back on my 2 feet standing Not sure what though - were pretty simple people. Going to a Golden Carrol & a drive inn movie is a hit date night for us

See my pregnancy was the complete opposite i threw up everyday for seven month. I had real bad headaches they had to put me on medicine for it. Umm i fainted once it was just a miserable pregnancy so that's probably why i don't want to do it again.

Laura you deserve true love my friend glad you find it. I can honestly say I have found true love and it have stood some test. There have been times that I know he should have walked away but he didn't he fought for me. So happy God sent me a man that can love me past my many many flaws

Oh goodness Victoria. I had great hair too, not to mention a great big belly. LOL!! I gained 60 pounds with Dane. By the time I got pregnant with Jarrod I had learned my lesson and only gained 25. Thank you Jesus!! I hate to ask, but what is 'hand differences'?

Janie, God bless you!! 5 boys? I thought 2 would kill me. Of course I had all their friends here 24/7 too. My boys were very good at picking up strays. LOL!! They'd say, "Mom, his mom doesn't even cook dinner!! Can he have dinner with us?" I thought at times I would go crazy with all the teens at my house all the time.

But you know what? When my husband died, more of the kids friends came to his service than friends our age. I guess that was a true testament to what we mean to those kids. There were boys and girls too. And those same kids have been a God-send to me over the last 1 1/2 years. They've done yard work for me and helped out any way they could.

They're all in their 30's now and have kids of their own, but they still call me Mom, and I'm pretty proud of all of them. My boys are still friends with them all and whenever they have a get together I'm always invited and I must say that it makes me feel pretty special.

Reading that brought tears to my eyes Deb, that is what my house was like growing up. All my friends came to my house because my MOM was "cool". At least once a week if not all weekend that is were everyone crashed, was fed and hung out. When I graduated from High School we moved across country from New Brunswick to Alberta but I am sure if we had stayed they would of been there too for my MOM. Like you, she was a MOM to them all and made them all feel special and important. I hope that one day when my kids are grown I am rememeber fondly by my kids friends too and that I made them feel welcome, loved, special and important. Send you hugs for the great way you raised your boys and so many others even if you did not see that at the time.

Preston is missing a finger (his middle one) on his left hand and had his middle and ring finger on his right hand joined as one. He has had three surgeries on his hands. One good thing is he can never flip anyone off. I have a funny story about that for another time..... It is a genetic problem that probably came from my family, although we don't know for sure.
No worries about asking!

Oh girls, you are so sweet!!! You know it was so hectic sometimes with all the kids here, but now that it's over and I actually lived through it, I'm so thankful!! It's made me so much closer to my boys. They always felt they could come to me with any and every problem. Some made me blush, some made me mad, but all in all, they all made me appreciate my closeness.

John and I were invited to an Easter gathering at a friend of the kids house. All the kids friends were there with all their babies. John said to me, "We are the only old people here." I said, "I know, isn't it awesome?"


Victoria, thank you for explaining that to me. It certainly doesn't seem to hold him back any does it? In fact it might be a motivation. Especially pitching the way he does. He's had a lot to overcome and he's done a fine job of it. It must make you twice as proud!!

Hello Deb!

Well, about me? Im have no humans, 2 adopted cat's & an adopted African Grey Parrot. I also have found my soul mate after 39 years of life (smile) We just celebrated out 1 year anniversary on June 21st.

I love movies, altering things, creating weird art, creating Canvas & mixed Media arts. Im not a "typical" scrapbook er but I love art in general no matter which factor really.

I really dis-like fighting, drama & being mean. I am a very caring, loving, happy person. I speak my mind, I cant hold my tongue & Im protective of my friends or anyone I care about.

I love making people happy, bringing a smile to another's face is what I strive for in life. Now that I feel like I filled out a Looking for love survey LOL I am going to finish up the questions here & get to creating something



Laura, we have an African Grey too. She's a hoot and won't stop talking!! LOL

I have to sit this round out, I have a daughter getting married in Nov and I will be busy plus another grandbaby on the way.

I can't believe it's time for another swap, that sure did go by fast.

But thank you for thinking of me!!!
