Are you ready for the SSCS 2008..............

(feel free to save the logo and add it to your side bar....directions here)

After having a fun time in the Christmas Swap last year with 80+ participants I decided I am going to run it again………….1 person didn’t send and 1 present didn’t arrive so that is pretty good. ……( those 2 girls didn’t miss out though)

If you want to see what happened last year go to my labels and choose Secret Santa Christmas Swap

Here is what Cheryl wrote about last year’s swap……….

August 10 of last year was my very first post and there leaving a comment was Chookyblue. "Welcome to blogland" she says. "Why not dive in head first and sign up for my Christmas Swap" she says. "Yippee" I say!!! I am all about Christmas...and then the adventure began with Elf Donna at our helm for the first ever Secret Santa Christmas Swap! Who would have guessed that 80 + swappers from all around the world would participate, and out of this wonderful idea from our own Chookyblue (aka Elf Donna) such wonderful friendships would be made, not to mention such wonderful gifts exchanged! So what do I say...come on...dive in head first and join Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap, and let the magic begin!”

Cheryl Polka Dots & Rick Rack

The rules are simple

  • Don’t tell anyone who your swap partner is please. This is a secret swap shhhhhhhhh!!!!!! A different person will be sending to you……….
  • You have to be willing to post internationally
  • You need to have an active blog …....posting a couple of times a month…….. so your partner can sneak a peek and get ideas of what to make for you and they know you are active……………therefore existing
  • You can make whatever you want eg, bag, wall hanging, softies, stitchery, table runner - whatever it is you love to make………send something you would love to receive…..
  • Sign up deadline is when I have toooo many people (last year I was going to leave it open for several weeks but had to shut it within a week)
  • Swap partners emailed out mid to late August
  • Sending (not before 10th November) deadline is 25th November to ensure your partner gets their present before Christmas (remember reason for swap)

· Please don’t sign up if you are not prepared to send, non-senders!!!! will be named and shamed

· Make sure you "thank" your Santa – very important

· If If you are difficult to contact you may be dropped from the swap………..several times between now and the deadline I email out and you MUST reply………so if you are going away for a week or 2 just let me know

· If everyone can follow the above it will make for another very successful SSCS………..

· Any problems make sure you contact me

  • If you want to join email me I need your

Name, Address (including country), email and blog address

Cheryl and Laila still have the SSCS 2007 logo on there sites so auto entry for those 2 girls...........

  52. Donna good luck with hosting the SSCS 2008, with so many participants it must take you quite some time to organize things! I'm so looking forward on seeing all the beautiful things the secret santa's are gonna make! I'm sorry for not taking part this year (it's that no time problem), maybe next year?

    Best wishes, Corry
