Welcome to the Secret Sisters Swap!

RULES/GUIDELINES: **** send all information in a private message to this profile****

1. If you sign up for this swap you will receive one secret sister (swap partner). On April 5th you will receive your new sister.

2. You will send her a small package (examples would be some scrap supplies, a key chain, candy, hand made card, etc.).
You also have the option to order directly from someone's wish list and let scrapbook.com do all the hard work.

3. 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! If you place the order with scrapbook.com be sure to indicate in the comment section that it is for a secret sister swap and to hide your details. They are great about leaving the details off.

4. You will also need to leave your little sister (the one you are sending to) messages on the board at least once a week. SecretSisters2015 I.D. was created for everyone who wants to use it instead of making individual secret I.d.s The password is 12345

5. If you do not want to mail internationally, let me know before sign ups close so that I can accommodate your wishes.

6. You must check into this thread at least once a week. Communication is vital in this swap!

7. Secret sisters will end on June 15th and then the big reveal!

8. Please complete the questionnaire below and send it to me before the swap begins by April 1st. This will give your SS an idea of what to give you.

9. There is a maximum price limit of $20 per month. No more than that!!! There is also a minimum price limit of $10 per month not including shipping on your little sister.

10. Never hesitate to pm me if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS. I am here to help you!

11. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than the 10th of each month. That should give the package time to arrive before the 15th.

12. Have fun!



Have fun, chat, share lo's, anything goes in this thread. But remember, keep those lips zipped after you know your SS!

Secret Sister Ideas:

1) Send a card.

2) Type a letter. Be sneaky and devious.

3) We did this at my church: You write a message to your secret sister, then break up the pieces and wrap them up. Your secret sister has to put it together.

4) Remember, it doesn't have to be scrap stuff. You will be able to fit a TON of different things into a regular card envelope (to save on postage), such as key chains, postcards, etc.

Here is the list of suggestions. You DON'T have to do this...just some ideas!

Homemade pie, cake, or cookies
Small votive candle wrapped in pretty fabric
A card in the snail mail - Everyone feels good about getting mail that isn’t a bill
Fresh cut flowers
Book
Box of specialty tea or coffee
Gift certificates: Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, ice cream stores, …
Picture frames
Basket of relaxing bath things
Nice cookie cutter with recipe and ingredients
Set of placemats
Handbags/totes
New journal with nice pen
Old Navy has good gifts for under $10.00

*****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, and I do not want to see that happen again. *****

Your information must be received by January 1st, or I will not give you to someone else. And I do not want to have to ask for it, so please take a few minutes to send me the basic information when you sign up, you can always change your mind or add to it before the 1st.

Your Information:
Screen name:
Name:
Address:
Phone number:
Birthday
Your favorite scrap supplies:
Favorite gifts:
Allergies:
Pets:
Dislikes:
Favorite snack
Are you willing to send to an international sis this round???

I would love to join again but I do realize I am not able to check in every week. I do not have access to a computer all the time since I put it in the basement I have not hooked it back up. I had a lot of fun with this swap and I am sure going to miss it.

LOL!! I don't have any Alder trees. How about a palm? I have absolute tons of them. I have babies popping up everywhere in my yard. The seeds fall by the dozens. They're a real pain!!!

I just went outside and watched the Atlas rocket take off. I haven't done that in a long time. Especially since the space shuttle program got shut down. I had to look through all the trees but since it's dark it was easy to spot. Just a big orange fireball raising to the heavens. So cool!!!

Many years ago, probably twenty plus years, we actually got to go out to the cape to watch one. My brother works our there and got us special passes in the observation area. We even got to listen to the mission controllers talking back and forth between here and the space center in Texas. I know it's something my son's will never forget. You could even feel the ground rumble. I wish I could have done that more than once.

Of course Nancy. We'd love to have you.

LOL! Victoria. I'm allergic to the palm tree offspring. Seriously, the babies are everywhere in my flower beds. The roots are so deep that they're almost impossible to pull up. There will be 50 in one little cluster. Most of the palms in my yard were grown from seed. Back in the day if one fell in a particularly good spot I would let it go ahead and take root and grow. Boy am I sorry now. I didn't realize at the time how much of a pain they would be once they got fully grown. Not the mention they're always losing their fronds. They look pretty and tropical but someone has to pay for that beauty. Guess who? LOL!!

Hi ladies. I am busy with school work as usual. It is finals this week, and we have my grand daughter this week. She is strong break but her mom is not, she is working and in school as well. my grandson is an everyday thing unless his momma isn't working or at school. Plus we have David's two boys since this past Friday to this Friday. Ugh is all I am going to say. I need quiet time and not just when they are asleep.
I have two assignments from last week that I need to complete tonight and then I need to work on my final project. Been watching and reading the materials for this week already. Re-watching video clips on areas I need help on. InDesign is a fun program but can be confusing on some aspects.

Kids enjoyed Easter yesterday and everyone had a blast. Even if the easter egg hunt was around 5:30pm. They all had loads of fun. I know I was tired, I ended up taking a nap for a short bit.

Can't wait to see who my new pal is this round. I have had fun buying for all my pals. I can't wait to play with my Cameo too, still haven't been able to play with it hardly...it's feeling neglected. I hate not having time to sit down at my desk for hours and playing with all my goodies. UGH. Glad I get to still have fun shopping.

Sorry I'm late on getting the sister's out girls. Yesterday was a whirlwind but I'll get on it right now.

I have some sad news to tell everyone. Pink, Kimberly's husband called me this afternoon and our beautiful Pink friend passed away this morning. Her health has been declining lately since she got her lap band surgery and I know from our last conversations that she was in a huge state of depression. He said she took too many pills last night. It's a very sad day for me and many of the girls on this thread who knew her and loved her.

That last comment made me smile on Pink's behalf. She would always make a point of not allowing us to call her Kim! Always had to be Kimberley! She'd be watching down now and frowning at those of us who knew her if we didn't say something about the 'Kim'!

I think she'd been pretty low for a year or two. She has a big family (7 kids), loving husband & a grandson too - such a sad thing for them all.

Yes Rachel I know about the Kimberely and Kim. When I first started on this swap, I asked which she preferred and riled her a few times on purpose by calling her Kim. She finally knew that I was being a smarty pants and teased me back.

Sad day for her family yes, I am sure they are sharing fond memories of their mom, wife and friend. She left the world too soon. Now looking out for her family as an angel.

Hello Ladies,

Miss you bunches but really my time commitments have just increased and I don't come on here everyday let alone once a week anymore. I am currently in the last week of creating things for my DD wedding that takes place on Saturday April 9th.

I am greatly saddened to hear of Pink's passing, she was an amazing woman, mother and grandmother and very talented.

I will be checking in again in a few days....off to type up labels

Good Monday morning everyone! I have had a pretty exhausting weekend, and was very shocked by the news about Pink, God rest her soul. She took it very hard when her mum died, and now they will be reunited, which is a blessing.

We were moving furniture all around the country, leaving my stepdaughter in charge of the olds, with her 11 year old daughter Isabella. We moved some of my brother's stuff to my dd Emily's new home - they spent their first night there last night! Then we helped (I had borrowed a big van from work so it was great to move stuff so easily!) by moving Emily and David's last few boxes, and his bike, to their new place. Then over to the olds, packed up their house, as much as we could manage, and dropped a bed to Emily. Went to see my old mum while we were up in the north of England, which was nice - she was quite bright, and eating her Sunday lunch.

As I arrived at the nursing home, an ambulance was there to collect the body of a patient. The old lady had lived there for 5 years. All the staff came out into the spring sunshine to see her off - I thought it was a really nice touch. A few even waved as the ambulance went off down the hill. Touching moment.

We got back at 9.30pm and emptied the van. So exhausted.

While we'd been away and working our butts off all weekend, mother in law had had serious constipation. My fil had forgotten to give her her meds for a WEEK!! AAAAARRRGGGHHH! Poor stepdaughter was at her wits end. Shes had regular meds since Friday evening, but nothing is really working yet. The olds were asleep when I got back last night, and asleep when I left for work this morning, so there may be all sorts of trouble to sort out when I get back this evening.

I think I definitely need for you to wish me luck!!

Hi Pam!
I am here to claim you. I am working on getting your first package together.
Question for you - do you wear jewelry?

I talked to one of the sisters at work today about the old lady, Tina. She came round to my office with a little 'goody bag'! No prunes, but suppositories and gloves and lube! I don't think I have ever taken anything quite like this home before!

Good luck Rachel. Dad is already relying on you and DH. Which is good and bad. In this case not so good.

We had a nice Divine Mercy Sunday celebration. We went to Lauds at 9:00, Mass at 10:00. It was nice.

I started on a dahlia dish cloth, which some of you saw on FB. It is an intermediate pattern, so some new stuff for me. All good though. Although as I was working I remember my great grandmother used to say you had to take out all of your work that you did on Sunday.

Happy Monday everyone Does anyone have any big scrapbook plans for the week or upcoming weekend?

My Monday Night tv show is done for now...I am hoping that is comes back. It was such a good show (Recovery Road). And I am ALL done with mermaid blankets So, I am back to scrapbooking a lot more.

I got my table all cleared off, and went to sit down and my motivation went running out the window. I am hoping it comes back to me.

Yes I do have a birthday this round...getting old...lol.

As for anything particular that I want first, not really. I am happy with anything. I love my metal embellishments and steampunk style stuff. But I love stamps and paper too. I am easy to please hun. Plus if the stuff isn't exactly from my wishlist but it is similar but a different brand from the stores, I am awesome with that too. I love Mike's Recollection line. I love goodies from Mike's, Jo's and Hob Lob. I even like eclectic goodies that can be used in steampunk stuff that isn't necessarily scrapbooking. I love to alter canvases, so flat or regular canvases are great...small to larger sizes. I love jewelry making stuff as well. I will be making stuff for my steampunk wedding, so I will be using a lot of copper, pewter, silver stuff, chains and lobster claw clasps.

I am sure I will be pleased as can be with my goodies that you get me.

Hi ladies. Evidently I messed up on passing out the sisters. I'm not sure what happened unless I forgot to hit ADD POST. I went through and checked everyone off. So, anyway If I didn't give you your little sister please pm me. I'm at Mick's tonight and my paper with the list is at home so I'll get on it as soon as I get back home.

We've been cleaning Mick's place up because his son and family are supposed to be here on the 12th. We went to Lowe's last week to pick out carpet for his bedrooms. The rest of the house is tile. WHITE tile. OMG!!! Can you imagine. Better him than me. LOL!! Today he was trying to fix the toilet in the guest bath and accidentally broke the water pipe off way back in the wall. There was water shooting everywhere. He had to go turn it off at the meter but it took a long time because the meter was under water. He thought he'd turned it off at the main to the house but it was still shooting water. What a mess. I got the shop vac out and started sucking up water. All I can say is it's a good thing that he's getting new carpet because his office carpet is soaked. I hope it doesn't ruin his desk. It's a huge desk and neither one of us are capable of moving it out of there. I got his master bath and kitchen all done so it's looking good.

Rachel, what a predicament. Are you going to have to be the doctor with the suppositories? How is mil going to feel about all that?

Thanks for asking sis, my weekend was great!
My favorite color is royal blue.
I love steampunk and shabby chic, so obviously I also like pastels for the shabby chic and earthy tones for the steampunk along with blue, purples and teals.

Have a lovely evening big sis!

Hello Big Sister!

I love most embellishments. Especially brads, ribbon/lace/twine, and adhesive gems and pearls. The colors I use most often are blue, black, white, brown and purple. I also need a stash refresh with paper, so any paper on my wishlist would be awesome!

I'm sorry to hear about pink. My thoughts will be with her family.

When my motivation disappears, I find someone to do a scraplift from! It always turns out differently to the original, but it gets me back in the groove again!

Dh got home from a business trip to Paris around 10am, and texted me that there had been an 'eruption'!!!! Too much information, methinks! However, as mil was up and dressed with lipstick on before I left the house this morning, I was already thinking she looked a little brighter.

I love that saying from your grandmother!!

Debbie - I was the NURSE with the supps - who needs a doc for that?!! I went home and immediately said to her 'this evening I am your nurse, and not your daughter in law, for at least the next 20 minutes'. She was quite ok and did everything I said - I wasn't taking any prisoners! Seems it all paid off today, so all is well. I have also got dh putting their dinner together this evening, as fil has asked me to go and buy some pyjamas for her and some new joggers/elasticated leisure trousers, which I think I can manage!

I have started on a mini album - it was something I could do whilst sitting with the olds. If I leave the room for any length of time, mil says 'Wheres our Rachel'?!! I guess she just needs to settle in a little more!

Aw, Rachel, that is the one thing I miss about my grandma more than anything is being called "our Victoria". Such fond memories of that. Thank you. It is such a very English thing and so endearing!
