Sign up closes November 1st at midnight.

Ornament to be received by December 15th, please allow for mailing time.

Seems like its about time to organise the secret santa fun for this year, how about we do something different? They say "change is as good as a holiday", so, let's have a change.

This year, you will send your recipient a xmas ornament!

You don't have to spend a fortune but if you can find something that maybe relates to your state or the area you live,  that could be fun and remind them of you each year when they hang their treasure upon their tree. Or perhaps you can find something your recipient would love, a kitty or dog ornament, their favourite bird or something funky that makes you think of them. Who knows, there might even be quilty ornaments out there. Does your recipient have a thing for snowflakes or snowmen, disney characters or old fashioned styles?  If possible, use a sharpie pen and write your name and the year on the base or back of the ornament.

So who wants to join the fun?

Snoopyhug Thank you Alicia for taking this on for me, so very much appreciated. I know you have a really cool system for working it out so no one gets the same swapper over and over again and we all rotate around nicely. Thats really thoughtful and I suspect a lot of work so again, thank you stocking

I must check with mum and see if she wants to join, Im sure she could fit another ornament in. Each year we find a nice one for Laura and I write the year and the place we are living on the base or bottom of the back. One day when she leaves home I will give her the collection, a xmas decoration documentation of each Dec of her life.

Usually each year a pharmacy down the coast opens a xmas shop for a month or so with lots of goodies, hope they do this year as they get the coolest ornaments.

Cassie and I hope to go ornament shopping this week on her day off. If the nice weather holds it should be a good outing.

This year, you will send your recipient a xmas ornament!

You don't have to spend a fortune but if you can find something that maybe relates to your state or the area you live,  that could be fun and remind them of you each year when they hang their treasure upon their tree. Or perhaps you can find something your recipient would love, a kitty or dog ornament, their favourite bird or something funky that makes you think of them. Who knows, there might even be quilty ornaments out there. Does your recipient have a thing for snowflakes or snowmen, disney characters or old fashioned styles?  If possible, use a sharpie pen and write your name and the year on the base or back of the ornament.

So who wants to join the fun?
