Cyber shower sign-ups!
 
For those who don't know the cyber shower is a surprise gift exchange (similar to Secret Santa). Those interested will sign up and answer some questions and I will try to find you someone who meets your criteria best. Of course, I will do my best so match-ups won't be perfect.

The last day to sign up will be October 31st and all gifts must be sent by December 1st! We will all vote and pick a day and time to open the gifts by our secret DDC member so that we can all try to open them together. Of course, not everyone will be able to participate that day so those people can open them at a different time of their choosing.

The requirements for the cyber shower are:
You must be an active member of the January 2012 Due Date Club for at least 60 days and have at least 200 posts on the January Due Date Club. Active member is defined by posting on the board at least 20 times per month.

You may spend up to $20 excluding postage!

Now for the questions:)
1. Are you having a boy or girl?
2. Would you prefer to buy for a boy or girl?
3. What things do you like?
4. What types of things do you not like?
5. What things do you not need?
6. What things do you need more of?
7. Any special concerns/requests? (I encourage everyone to let this be a surprise and not request specific people to buy for but in the even that someone requests to have a specific person I will do my best to honor the request. Example: DDBs wanting to buy for eachother).

Towards the end of the month I will send out notifications to those who have signed up but do not qualify for the cyber shower. After that I will start a new post and have those ladies that did qualify pm me their addresses so that I can pass it along to their cyber buddy:)

1. Are you having a boy or girl? Boy
2. Would you prefer to buy for a boy or girl? Either
3. What things do you like? Cloth diapers, soft toys, woombie, honestly it doesn't matter. I'm not too picky.
4. What types of things do you not like? Can't think of anything.
5. What things do you not need? Bottles, pacifiers.
6. What things do you need more of? milk storage bags
7. Any special concerns/requests? (I encourage everyone to let this be a surprise and not request specific people to buy for but in the even that someone requests to have a specific person I will do my best to honor the request. Example: DDBs wanting to buy for eachother). Not that I can think of. Prefer the US.

2. Would you prefer to buy for a boy or girl? No preference

3. What things do you like? I like cute, funny, unique, creative things.

4. What types of things do you not like? I do not like "funny" shirts and onsies that are inappropriate (My mom is a MILF, etc.). I don't want my students seeing me pushing the baby around in the stroller at the grocery store in that stuff, lol!

1. Are you having a boy or girl? Girl

2. Would you prefer to buy for a boy or girl? No preference

3. What things do you like? I'm really not all that picky! ;)

4. What types of things do you not like? Nothing is jumping out at me right this second as things I don't like. I'll trust you to make a good choice.

5. What things do you not need? We honestly, don't need much as this is our 4th baby. So get something you like and would like to give!

6. What things do you need more of? Ditto to above!

7. Any special concerns/requests? (I encourage everyone to let this be a surprise and not request specific people to buy for but in the even that someone requests to have a specific person I will do my best to honor the request. Example: DDBs wanting to buy for eachother).

My old DDC did it by letting everyone opening their gifts as they come and then post a thank you thread with pics. That way it doesn't have to be coordinated and it was fun seeing things come in over a couple weeks! Just my two cents!

1. Are you having a boy or girl? Boy
2. Would you prefer to buy for a boy or girl? No preference. And if we have any legit twin mamas left around here, I wouldn't mind buying for twins, either.
3. What things do you like? All sorts of stuff. I'm not hard to please.
4. What types of things do you not like? Sports themes
5. What things do you not need? Newborn or 0-3 months clothes. We have been very fortuntate and received more hand-me-downs in those sizes than we'll be able to use!
6. What things do you need more of? This is our third child, so there really isn't anything that we need. :)
7. Any special concerns/requests? Nope.

1. Are you having a boy or girl? Boy!
2. Would you prefer to buy for a boy or girl? No preference!
3. What things do you like? Simple clothes in bright colours (stripes are awesome!), cloth diapers of all types, and whatever else really!
4. What types of things do you not like? Really complicated outfits - you know, like those little button-up shirts and "dress pants" and socks and laceup shoes for newborns? - they're SO cute, but totally impractical and usually expensive and quickly outgrown. And hyper-masculine stuff for little babies is not really on my list either. I'm also not super in love with huge logos or Disney stuff. No inappropriate slogans please. (Geez I'm picky! Sorry, whoever gets me! :lol: )
5. What things do you not need? Disposable diapers and yellow onesies (I got a dozen solid yellow onesies from my aunt - I love yellow, but NO MORE! lol).
6. What things do you need more of? Cloth diapers and clothes/onesies bigger than newborn.
7. Any special concerns/requests? Nope, nothing! :)
