This looks like so much fun.... Have to get to a real computer and sign up!

Silly question: should we be crafting so partner can guess us or really try and keep it a mystery?

I am sure this is going to be more of an opinion of specific craftsters rather than a hard fast rule. Me personally, it would be fun to guess and see how good of a sleuth I am, but I'm not sure I would want total deception like mailing it from another country/state.
And yes, I did ponder that.... Smiley

I know in another secret swap I was in, we did reveal ourselves by a certain date.... And some people were easier to guess because of where they sent from or what they sent that helped the guessing process.

Right, it's up to each swapper!  That makes it more fun! Cheesy

I've been in secret swaps where I received clues and puzzles, those were tons of fun to figure out!  I've also been in some where people removed their location from their profiles to make it harder to guess.lol

Ooooooooh - sneaky!

I have been in other forums for Secret Santa swaps where I have used my parents (aunts, uncles, friends) return addresses to keep the secret - but the recipients were mostly from the same country.
