Secret Santa 2013

Sign-up Closed

Can you believe it? Not only has that time of year snuck up on me already it's also my third year of hosting this swap!

Whoopidooings: Carmen Wing - Secret Santa 2013 logo - Christmas Raven

I'm going to keep the format the same as last year so will copy and paste that over in this post...

Are you interested in taking part in a Secret Santa? You will put together a fabulous Christmas gift for your recipient. Stalk well. Find out what they would swoon clear away over. It can be anything. ANYTHING. Handmade loveliness, art, stash, books, chocolate... just tailor it to your person and fill it with yuletide cheer.

Good quality second hand stuff - books, stamps, vintage/retro items - is all good (if it's not - let me know so I can let your Santa know!) Means you'll get more pressie for your buck!

Shall we set the minimum spend at £10? (Roughly $16.03USD or roughly 12 euro's according to if you wish to spend more on your recipient, feel free but be aware that your sender might not be in the position to do the same.

If you want to know something in particular about your recipients likes etc, email me and I will email them for you anonymously. Obviously I am the only one who will know who my Santa is. So that one wouldn't be anonymous.

Things I need from you -

1. Who you are.

2. Email address

3. Blog or Facebook art/craft page address or personal website (for stalkage)

4. Postal address

5. Some likes/dislikes. Do you have a wishlist online?

Please email the above to - whoopidoo at btinternet dot com or click the 'email me' button on my sidebar. Include the email subject 'Secret Santa' (Hopefully that way it will filter into a folder I have set up.)

I will close sign up for the Secret Santa one week from today. Wednesday the 16th October. I'll then sort out who is sending to who and email you your victims details as soon as possible afterwards. I will try and keep you posting within your own country but please let me know if you don't mind posting internationally. So far we have the UK and the USA playing.

So to recap:

Will keep sign up open till the 16th

I'll then email you your victim
Stalk, stalk, stalk. Make, spend, gather, rummage, wrap, wrap, wrap.
Posting date:  1st of December so it will arrive in good time.
Stalk postie
Shake, rattle and feel pressie
Try and resist till the 25th (I know who wont!)
Mad tearing frenzy.
Meet back after the big day to show off our gifts

  4. Oh no, I missed the deadline, only just seen this today, never mind I will do next year xx

  5. Santa has his problems with the reindeers they need carrots and hay before they will start warming up. Santa is walking around and around so the carpets are full of holes ;)

  6. The reindeer looked a little miffed to be working 'this early in the year' but they did take off in the end...
