I am both excited and a little ekk on this one lol.. I think it will be so much fun but at the same time I am little worried that it could get bigger then I think it will.. only time will tell but I am still looking forward to it!
So here is my idea.. Would you like to do Christmas cards with a tiny gift (the gift can be small enough to fit in the card ( I expect this will be the average?) or a small gift could come with the card.
I want a cut off date by end of Nov for my own mail outs to at least TRY and get them to those who want to play on time.. but I will state right now..
Its possible they will NOT arrive till after xmas.. the mail can be fast and great or it can be so slow.. I have had my mom mail something from western Canada and get here in a week or 4 to 6 weeks and I NEVER know..
I have sent things to the states and had it go fast and had it go so slow I thought they would NEVER get it lol
Most of my little wee gifts will fit in a card.. but I do have a few bigger homemade ones.. I have given them a number and I will do this random.. if you are that number in the list that says yes! lets play you get the extra bonus wee gift or gifts.
I will do a round up post of cards and wee gifts sent back to me unless you tell me in your letter not to do so?
So if you want to play! send me a comment on this post and if you are game, I need a name and mailing address.. I will NOT publish your comment.. I will change it and post it with a got it, looking forward to it note. so you know it was gotten.
If you want to send me a Secret Santa back, then I will also need a email address so I can send you my mailing address.
I am excited to see who is going to want to do a exchange..
FG Tips Idea’s of things that would work well
Just a card with a little hand written note is just lovely
