I have had a few people, including Laura ask me about this so Id say its a go this year. If so we can start a new topic, seeing as people post direct to their recipient Id be happy to organise the swapping out if no one else wants to

I knew it was only a matter of time before memaw would try to twist my arm (twist the good arm memaw) about this. I'm interested, just waiting to see what all it involves. Memaw knows I get a little crazy with swaps, especially the deadlines.

Jill for the secret santa swap we keep it real simple so anyone can join. I'll draw names out of a hat and thats how each recipient will get decided. You only have the one person to send a gift to, gift is anything to the value of $10, you can make something, buy something, re-gift/recycle something. Lots of us have patterns/books etc that could re-gift. You could buy some little things like needles, candy, candles, thread - anything you can think of. Last year I recieved a xmas ornament, pot holder and box of tea from Gwennie, it was so much fun. You could applique some tea towels, make a mini quilt, send some fat quarters or homemade cookies - the aim of it is just to be easy, do-able, affordable and FUN!!! :santa1:

I got an e-card from Mom and she "mentioned" that I still needed to sign up! police
Of course, I will join in again this year, I have some lovely gifts from years past, it is nice to get a gift that is just for me.
