to look forward to - especially with pleasure


CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED CLOSED




I know this is what several of you have all been waiting for.......but I just had to find a slightly quieter time to post it........but I can't find any so lets just wing it and if you're patient well get thru it all...........
You know it is time to put the SSCS post up when the emails asking
about the
 SSCS go from weekly to daily...........
2007 - 82
2008 - 156
2009 - 118
100% success 2009
If you want to see what happened over the last years go to my labels and choose Secret
Santa Christmas S w a p or Secret Santa Christmas S w a p, SSCS09 (just after xmas there are a pile of posts of presents)


The rules are simple and clear










  • Make a beautiful gift (love, time and effort required) - you can make whatever you want eg, bag, wall hanging, stitchery, table runner, Christmas theme (optional)  - whatever it is you love to make...send something you would love to receive... (not something you whip up in a couple of hours)
  • Make a small decoration that can be hung on a Christmas tree (simple or fiddly up to you)
  • Don't tell anyone who your SSCS partner is please. This is a secret shhhhhhhhh!!!!!! A different person will be sending to you....
  • You need to have an active blog .....posting a couple of times a month.... this is so your partner can sneak a peek and get ideas of what to make for you and they know you are active.....therefore existing
  • International posting essential. (AIRMAIL ONLY)
  • Sending (not before 19th November) deadline is 25th November to ensure your partner gets their present before Christmas (reason for swap)

%%%%%
  • Make sure you "thank" your Santa - very important and post about your present when you receive it...
  • If you are difficult to contact you may be dropped from the SSCS.....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..... less headaches for me.........
  • Any problems make sure you contact me sooner rather then later


        Please DON'T sign up
  • if you are not prepared to send (non-senders are named & shamed) 
  • if you’re too busy
  • if you’re not committed to making and sending quality handmade gifts
  • your blog is "no reply"
