This swap is open to USA swappers only due to time constraints... but if you know someone in your country that you'd like to swap with I'm sure we can figure something out.

Signed up!!   I asked that I be paired with someone in the US if possible, I didn't see the "would you be willing to swap outside of your own country" thing on the questionnaire.   Also, can we wrap the extra gift(s) so we can put them under the tree?   Sorry to be a pain!!  LOL

This is already a US only swap, unless someone from another country wants to swap with someone from their own country (if that makes sense... its more of a time thing for shipping baked goods). Also, if you want to talk to your partner once you have one you can always decide between the two of you to gift wrap things!

Oh! I love this idea! Finally a way to get all the goodies I'll be making out of the house. The nice folks at my DH's work are always thankful when I send in extras, but I'd love to make something FOR somebody other than my family. Just sent in the questionnaire!

Just a few more days left to sign up... this seems like its going to be a fun little swap!

I do have a question that I didn't ask on the sign ups (and also I'd just like to know): what type of holiday goodies do you like to make?

I personally like to make almost anything... I've even started making cakes (not from scratch, but delicious) and pies (all from scratch, pie crusts aren't scary once you've made a few)! I love making cookies though, I really need to stop that actually...  Tongue

Just sent in my info and I'm instantly having visions of my soon to be destroyed kitchen.  :  )  New recipes take me a while to figure out, but I definitely enjoy it when they work!

Mmm, we had a wonderful Turkey day! My fiance's dad made the most amazing squash cookies (he didn't have any pumpkin) and I made pie! Well, we made everything except for the turkey, my parents did that...

Sign ups are still open if anyone wants to sign up! I'll close them tonight/tomorrow morning and get partners out tomorrow afternoon sometime probably!

I made some delicious cookies last night! I planned on making more since I had the day off... but I am so easily distracted! I'll hopefully make some more after work today. There were a few recipes I wanted to try, so I decided I'm just going to make them all!

I will hopefully be on my way to the post office within the hour! \0/ My first batch of cookies was a big hit with the folks around here. The kitchen still hasn't recovered.

As I understand it, you'll send the DC to both the organizer and your partner, that way they can both track the package and/or stalk their mailbox.  :  )
