Also, if you want or need some more info on your recipient you can always contact Alica or myself (or a friend of the recipient) and ask them for some help, that works too. Alica/me/mod/friend can ask the recipient questions for you and keep the SS identity secret, I actually did it with the last swap. I knew Memaw was friends with Jill so I asked her for help in working out some of Jills tastes, just another hint.

Thinking too, if you are hoping for something to decorate a room for instance like your dining room you could put that into your likes information post, you could say something this which is an only an off the top of my head example:

"Im re-decorating my dining room, its painted in red/white/blue. I love country, I hate modern. I would love things like mug rugs, table runners, place mats, mini quilts, wall hangings, nick nacks, unusual tea & coffee flavours, coffee cups"

or you might say

"Im a holiday decorating nut, I love halloween & christmas. Id love mini quilts, table runners, place mats, mug rugs, nick nacks, seasonal items, anything to do with those holidays"

or

"I love cooking and could use a pretty apron, hand towels, tea towels, tea & coffee, kitchen gadgets, recipes etc"

Ok so you get the idea, those are just random examples that came into my head, nothing personal just made up examples. Its not only fun but helpful, dont be shy and dont feel embaressed. The more information you give, even mentioning the colours your home is decorated in, what your favourite foods are, your favourite holidays, books you like to read, favourite colours, favoured styles like art/modern/repro/traditional/country etc etc, all those tidbits help. Dont forget, if there is something you hate, let us know, I cant stand purple and dont care for SBS, why not tell us, Id hate to gift something to someone then find out later it was something they dont like. We can make it easy and fun for each other, its all just part of making and being friends, getting to know each other, becoming closer friends.

I am chuckling to myself over this thread. Have y'all ever seen the Family Circus cartoons in the paper? Whenever one of the kids is asked to do something specific, they show a little dotted map of all the extra twists and turns he took to reach his goal. Whenever I am thinking about a project or course of action, I picture that little dotted map in my head. I laugh at myself at how often I end up back where I started. Like we just did here.  lol! So nice to know I am not alone rambling around trying to find my way.  Cheesy

The first part is done, the second part is right behind the summer swap, which should be done today.  Knowing what she likes sure helped. Very Happy
