Schnookie is away at the moment at her moms

I like that you can make a little something for you recipient or if you cant make something you can buy to the value of $10, makes it fun and affordable either way

Okay, I'm getting confused with who is who. Everyone has a new avatar. Teehee. I'm dumb.

I am thinking of starting my project tonight. Selection of Fabric is the first step and that step is one of my favorites.

Everyone has their names .... shall we aim for Dec 11 as our OPENING DATE....
you have all of November to decide on what to send..... send your gift NO LATER THAN DEC 1ST[u] the earlier the better... that way you can tease you your little elf with a lovely gift they can't open.... HO HO HO.... remember no opening and no peeking...

Anita its not a minimum its kind of a maximum value. Means if you choose to make something a small 'something' is what we are sending and if you want to purchase a gift something to value of $10 is plenty. Very Happy
