Here's a caveat for those of you who like to Sweat Shoppe it: If you have the desire and means to send something to EVERYONE, wait to put in a claim until you have all the things completed and packaged up. Then, since you'll be mailing them all at once, we can discard the 2-3 claims at a time standard. If you do decide to do this, you can send me one email claiming everyone, so our mutual record-keeping will be less cluttered.

To reiterate, there is no expectation for swappers to do this. As long as you send one package that meets the swap requirements, you're all set. But I've seen how some of you are with the abundant gifting!   Wink

Sign-ups close TOMORROW! If you're waiting on swap feedback to sign up, and it comes in by Friday, I'll add you.  If there are several cases of this, I'm open to leaving sign-ups open through the weekend; what do you all think? I don't want anyone to feel pressured to pick from a list posted near the swap deadline and not have enough crafting time.

I'm not a tooth grinder, but I have a weird habit of moving my teeth against my tongue to the beat of a song... is that weird? Hahaha.

First claim is ALMOST done! Just waiting for drying time. I'm so excited about this one. It came out better than I envisioned! I have supplies for claim 2 but need to sit down and get a start on it soon.

Oh! I meant to ask, does a claim count as complete once the parcel is at its destination or once we provide proof of shipment?

It's counted as complete with proof of shipment.  Much faster that way! Grin

So, your tongue stays stationary while you move your teeth?? I'm trying to figure out how to do this (and probably looking really odd to the people walking past).  Cheesy

I want to make sure I have this correct:  The last day for choosing a person to be a Secret Santa for is December 7th, right?

That is correct -- Just as long as you can send it out that same day!  Smiley

I'm impressed with all the gifting happening already; one person has even received!  Shocked If you are uncertain about whether you'll have enough time for all the things you want to do, consider holding off on making those claims until the end of Thanksgiving Weekend (if you're in the U.S., that is). That's a big span of potential craft-time that sometimes disappears due to unexpected family-time or food-comas! But who knows, you might also get more done than you planned. We can dream.

Have a Holly Jolly Gallery...


Post pics of what you receive! If what you received is wrapped beautifully/creatively, show us that, too!  Grin

I am so bummed, Sign ups close tomorrow and my partner still hasn't gotten her package :{

No, no, no, no, no -- Sign-ups are open until November 21! There is still hope!  Smiley

My fingers are crossed super-hard for all of you because it would be so nice to have you in the swap!

 Grin Grin All posted wishlists have a Secret Santa!  Grin Grin This means open claiming of anyone and everyone (until new lists are posted)!  Grin Grin

Alwaysinmyroom will be posting her list sometime soon, so keep an eye open for that.

For anyone who is on the fence, jump on in! You still have a week to sign up.

It is up to you whether you want to include your name on the package. If you are trying to stay anonymous, it will be a little easier if you aren't the only person in the swap from your state or province.  Wink

There isn't a set day to open presents. Ideally they can be a part of your family's existing holiday gift-opening day. But if you're sending items for charity, or holiday decor items, you'd want to inform the recipient that opening right away is fine.

Eagerly awaiting the day when I can add edelC to the swap!
