So I was talking to my friend johnson.mom2two and we wanted to do a secret santa swap!  I looked through the past swaps and saw the secret santa party ones.  I pm'ed the organizers, but they haven't been around in a while.  So I think we are going to organize this!  Who would be up for a secret santa swap?  


I think we'd keep it pretty much the same idea, you don't know who your partner is, and we all open our presents up and post on the same day or maybe weekend to give everyone a lilttle time! We will keep it a nice and easy 3 point swap with one medium and one small and then also a small store bought item just as a little added bonus.  We would start sign-ups oct 1st and go through the 15th with sendouts sometime in the middle of November and then opening weekend would be the 17th and 18th.  


Thoughts or ideas?  Does this sound good to everyone, is there anything you'd want changed from previous rounds?  

johnson.mom2two did I miss anything?

Yes I think it would be easier if it was the a Saturday/Sunday, but the idea is you get your present, stick it under the tree and don't open it till the set day!  That way we will all be surprised at the same time!

I too would love to do this swap.  This will be my motivation to get my butt in gears on my other swap commitments so I have a free spot and crafting time.
