I know we have the Mini 12-Days of Christmas swap happening (I'm SO in for that one), but I was wondering if anyone might be willing to head up another Secret Santa swap (perhaps in a month or two)? I was in one a few years ago here on Craftster and it was hands-down my favorite swap ever because I just loved reading through everyone's wish-lists and being able to send little presents to a bunch of other crafters. Plus it's fun sending surprise gifts! I know it can be an intensive swap to manage and my life is insane so I'm not up for heading it but I would be a very enthusiastic participant.

I am pretty certain I won't have a swap slot available to join in, but I organized this Secret Santa Swap way back in 2012. If you were thinking something like this, someone could totally use this idea or a variation of it.

I was actually thinking of the wishlist model from 2017:

It's a hybrid of a wishlist swap and the idea of Secret Santa.

I would love to do another of these swaps.

It has been many years since I organized a swap and I've been reading about organizing a swap to refresh myself. I'd be willing to coorganize, but not sure I could organize it unless I had a good coorganizer. This swap was huge last year so would take commitment from both the organizer and coorganizer.

I've never organized (or co-organized for that matter) so this doesn't feel like the right swap to dive into in that regard, plus my life is often bananas. Hence my hope someone else can be persuaded to head up the swap. But I'll try to be a killer personal assistant and send cookies if someone experienced is willing to take the reigns. I am not above bribery, lol.

calluna hosted the last couple but I know she is very busy right now. Still... it's such a tempting swap. I mean, we had so much fun last year. And the year before Cheesy.

I might be persuaded to host... but I wouldn't feel safe committing until November at the earliest, and that's far away, and also things might change by then to make me not available... sooooooooo if no one steps up by November I might be able to?
