Details of swap:
This Secret Santa-style swapopen to all current and former members of STSis a chance to build some STS spirit, express our appreciation for this great community, and have a little low-stress holiday funfor whatever winter holiday you celebrate!  

This is a low-stress swap:  we will be swapping one medium and two small items.  According to Craftster, medium and small items are equivalent to the following:
MEDIUM  = 2 to 3 hours, $10-$30 (a set of notecards, a scarf, a simple bag)
SMALL  = less than 2 hours, less than $10 (earrings, a wallet, a bookmark)

Extras and spoiling are finejust keep in mind that since this isnt a partner swap, theres no way to ensure that you will be equally spoiled!   Whatever you send, be sure to wrap your items in a holiday fashion.
This swap is all about the secret.  Your partner wont know who you are until opening your package.  In turn, you wont know who will be sending to you until you receive.  That means that when you receive your partner's info, you will stalk her in silence.  You must NOT contact your partner and let her know who you are!  And be careful when posting in the STS forum!  

You may reveal yourself in the package you send, or if you prefer, in the gallery thread after your partner posts photos of your package.  As STSers, we might recognize one anothers addresses, so revealing yourself in your package is probably the way to go.  

As for revealing your partner to the group in the forum:  

When you receive, WAIT UNTIL DEC 14 (one week after send-outs) to name the person who sent your package in the thread.  

Or, if you (as a sender) didn't identify yourself in the package you sent, you can reveal your identity in the forum after the 14th.    

In the meantime, feel free to post gallery photos of the package you received.  It's also fine to chatter about who might have sent which package!

As in STS, you must agree to send internationally.  You may not have to, but as in STS, we want to make this an inclusive community!  Since this is a small swap, shipping should not be expensive.

Throughout the swap, you will be expected to:
* PM your group leader (either oneredboot or AsphaltQueen) when you send and when you receive.  Remember NOT to PM your partner!!     If you are sending within your own country, you must have a DC# (delivery confirmation number).  Include the DC in your package sent PM.  If you are sending outside of your country and cannot get a tracking number, you must keep your receipt as proof of shipping.
* When you receive, post photographs in the gallery

If you want to participate, PM oneredboot and AsphaltQueen with the following information.  We're keeping the q'nnaire short since most of us have swapped multiple rounds of the STS with each other--and also to keep the swap low-stress!
