Secret Santa Card Exchange 2008
   
For those who are interested, we will be organizing a Secret Santa Card exchange.  The purpose of the exchange is to send holiday card and a small gift to another person.  The gift must fit in the envelope with the card.  The recipient of the gift will not know who they will be getting their gift from until it arrives.    
 
A few rules for the exchange:  
 
All participants must have at least 25 posts at this board. (This is for everyone's protection, especially since real names and addresses will be shared).  
 
 
The value of the gift should not exceed $10 US.    
 
 
The gift does not have to be hair related, but we all know we love hair toys! Please do not send hair products such as shampoos or conditioners - these can be easily tainted and are heavy to ship.  
   
 
Since we have people here from all over the world, we will try to keep people within reasonable shipping areas, but if you are willing to do an overseas shipping, please let us know.    
   
 
To participate, please PM me by November 22nd with your name and address, favorite color(s), hair color, type and length.  Suggestions of small items that would love to receive from your Secret Santa can also be included.  If you have colors you detest, or have other information you would like to pass along, please include it in the PM.  Once I have all the names I will PM you with your person's information.  Your Secret Santa may not be the person you are sending your gift to.    
 
 
I will update this post with the list of name of those participating and when they have received their gift.    
   
 
Cards/Gifts should be sent by December 10th. Be sure to include your screen name with your gift.    
   
 
Once you have received your Secret Santa card/gift, please post here what you got and from whom so we can all share in the fun.    
 
 
Please keep in mind that you are participating in this exchange voluntarily.  We certainly hope everyone will keep up their end of the exchange.  If unable to send your gift, please PM me so I can try to arrange another exchange.

Today I had a most pleasant suprise-my SS gift had arrived!!!  On the envelope I see its from Curlygirl22!  I think, cool, I used to live in IL also!  Then I opened it up and saw a very beautiful card and inside were a lovely pair of silver and rhinestone dangly earrings.  Just my style!!!  Thanks, Curlygirl22, I really love my gift.  I have several holiday parties to go to and I'm going to wear my new earrings.

Thanks, again!!!!!

Ooo, the earrings sound very pretty, Sakina.   Cool 

I mailed my gift on Saturday so my "santa" should receive her gift sometime this week (hopefully!).   Wink

You're quite welcome, Enna!  I was a bit apprehensive about buying you a hair toy because you have such beautiful hair sticks, so I'm happy that you like it. Smiley

Sakina, I'm so glad you liked it!   I also recieved my SS gift from Curlygirl64. She sent me the most beautiful pink bracelets. I love them and have been wearing them the past few days.  Eveytime I look at them it makes me smile. Thankyou Curlgirl64.  This has been so much fun.

My SS card/gift came today!!!!  Enna - you are a girl of my own heart!  I love hand crafted gifts.  The card was darling and I can hardly wait to try out the snoods.  Beautiful crochet work!  Thank you, thank you!

My card went out in the mail today - sorry I've been slow - this was my first chance to get to the post office.  It is amazing how seldom I actually send anything thru the mail anymore.  I had no stamps in the house.  Angry
