We posted about this earlier in the year and there was a lot of interest and Tamara and I think it could be a lot of fun, so lets give it a go!
(poll is multiple choice!)

How it works

Everyone will sign up and be assigned a buddy - remember this is secret! Upon signing up I値l PM each participate a questionnaire to fill out and send back to me - this will include questions such as your scrappy likes and dislikes, any die cutters and such you might have, projects you are or will be working on, etc.
Once sign ups are closed I値l assign everyone their buddy and you値l receive a PM with your buddy痴 name, address, and questionnaire so you have some hints for your shopping.

From then on is the fun part - shop for your buddy (spending amt determined by this poll), package it all up, and ship it out by the deadline (all dates are posted below). Upon shipping your gift you値l be required to send me an order number if shipping from an online site, or Delivery Confirmation number (or equivalent) if shipping yourself.

The shipping deadline is just that, a deadline - the last possible day to ship your gift. Earlier the better! If there is any reason you池e not going to be able to send your gift by that day, you値l need to let Tamara or I know ASAP. If you have concerns about shipping times, ship earlier to make sure your gift makes it to your buddy by opening day.

Once you receive your gift in the mail sorry, but you値l have to wait!! Torture, I know, but no peeking either! On the same day (December 23rd) we値l all open our gifts together and have a little virtual gift opening 菟arty.

Who
This is open to our regular posters - I don稚 want to put a post limit or rules on this, we have a pretty regular group of girls posting here and participating so you know who you are. If you池e posting a lot, been around, racking up the points, guest hosting, participated in previous swaps/exchanges, etc. you池e good to go! If you have any doubts then PM me or Tamara.

Your buddy will be assigned at random, though depending on who and how many sign up I値l try to keep people matched with people in the same country. I知 sure we won稚 have a perfect number so the questionnaire mentioned above will include a question as to if you池e willing to ship internationally. Tamara and I will be providing a list of online retailers in the US and in Canada and their shipping rates to get started so that if you do have an international buddy you can just order from a site in her country and avoid the expense of shipping internationally.

The Dates
These aren稚 written in stone, if something doesn稚 work or you have a suggestion I didn稚 think of, feel free to share!
  • November 12th - Last day for sign ups!
  • November 15th - Have your questionaire completed and PMed to me by this date as I値l be assigning buddies
  • December 13th - SHIPPING DEADLINE! You must have your gift shipped by now! Remember, earlier the better. We won稚 be opening gifts until everyone has received theirs
  • December 23rd - Gift opening
US Stores

Glad you're joining in Amanda and hope to see you around! I can see why you've needed a break after LOAD though

I'm in! Tamara posted a link to Canadian online retailers and I have a list to post in a few, too - so I'll get those links added to the 1st post.

I'm hoping a few more ladies join in!

Ahhhh! I would LOVE to do this. But I don't know if I can. Just because we're gonna be moving and money is so tight with that, and I'm not sure I'd get it shipped in time, and we haven't even started Christmas shopping for family yet. I think DH would kill me if I did this! But I might change my mind in the next couple days. Because I love love love this idea. But for now, cound me out.
