Hi everyone,

With the exception of 2 gals removed, our swap has been successful to say the least. It was an honor to host this group of women and though I do have a tentative surgery date, September 18th of which I'll be hospitalized for 3-5 days, I have decided I WILL host my annual Fall/Halloween SS Swap. Now please bear with me as I am putting it out there now that that week I will be most likely MIA. I will have my Ipad & other devices handy and will try my best to be available but I the truth is I have no idea how it's going to go. It's a delicate surgery but have am sure I'll be back up and around by October. I'll post those swap details separately later this evening.

So far most packages have been received but have been in touch with everyone except mrshoagie for current statuses.
August 6 (WED):

Rhondamo - I believe Shannon has revealed herself to you and has been in touch.
mamaofdudes - your SS was CraftyAshley who was removed from the swap a month ago however *I* goofed with your replacement SS, it was in the midst of all my testing, and I sent another gal's information instead of yours. I take full responsibility for my mistake and am in the process of of packaging a gift just for you. It will take until next week to get it out but rest assured you WILL received one. Scout's promise.
Mommaho - I see your DC was posted.
mrshoagie & wren1976 - please let me know if you received yours or tracking information. thanks!


7-17:
Hi everyone things have been very crazy for me on my end lately. very quick update I did recently find out I will be having microvascular decompression which is the invasive brain surgery procedure that I was not expecting but Very hopeful for a positive outcome. This is not life-threatening but more for my well-being so we are in the process of scheduling the surgery for either early August or mid-September. I promise to be back with more details for those that had asked and I thank you again for your prayers and positive thoughts. Hoping I'll have a little bit free time since this evening to come back and be more active here on two peas, especially with all that's going on like the hostess issues with a few.... life has been hectic while caring for my toddler on top of it all but alas what is life if not chaotic.

Back to business:
It was recently brought to my attention a few days ago about Ashley & I have reached out to her myself but she will be removed from the swap today and I will take the necessary steps to Angel her spot. Thanks everyone for the heads up about this. Smh. Smh.




Time for our annual Summer SS Swap. Usually this group is much smaller than others as everyone is busy vacationing and what not but I'd love to offer it for those that are interested.

Imagine the fun & anticipation as you get to know your SS & vice-versa during our long, hot summer. Let's be sure to spoil our sisters this time around, as we always do, and make new friends as we come to the boards leaving little messages here and there.

Please EMAIL ME AT jeanettezamora at yahoo.com, pm or post here with your EMAIL ADDRESS & I will add you to my interest list and send questionnaires out by Wednesday May 15th (last day to signup). Requirements are provided in the questionnaire. If you have been extremely late or flaked before, please do not sign up.

In order to join, you must have successfully completed 1 swap here within the last 6 months and not be on the Flaker List.

Details: All packages must be mailed by August 1st.

Please note: Anyone who DOESN'T mail by August 1st, without notifying me PRIOR, will be placed on the FLAKER LIST. I understand dire circumstances do occur but I must be contacted before the due date August 1st or you will be considered a flaker. This is to avoid SS's that do not follow through leaving someone without their package.

This is for new, in package (unless stated otherwise, please refer to the rules & requirements portion of questionnaire) scrapbook, stamp and/or paper craft items.

$20/$5 as explained:
Value $20 of scrapbook items PLUS $5 personal item SUMMER THEME.

Please note that this is for NEW, UNUSED items. I have noticed & also have been contacted by previous participants of SS's who passed off said items they received in the swap then mailed their package late all the while sending those said items to their Secret Sister - that will NOT be tolerated. **** This was not the case in recent swaps but must be said regardless.***********

Let the fun begin! And thank you for joining

Secret ID step:

It's very simple to create a "Secret ID" to use and is as follows,

Remember your current Two Pea's username & password as you're going to sign out of it then "resign-up again". You ONLY have to use a new name when creating a new account, you can use all your existing Two Pea's information for the rest such as: password, address which is not displayed, email... but do not list your home city/state - in lieu of that you can be creative & use Cupid's (city) Land (state) as example.

To make things easier, I primarily use Firefox when webrowsing that stores my Two Pea's info but open up Explorer to communicate to my Secret Sister's as I have it set up to remember my Secret Sign-In name for Two Peas but if you use just one browser, then yes you will need to sign in & out respectively. Also be aware that even though you only need to contact your Secret Sis weekly, you are more than welcome to communicate more often - in the same regards, you may have messages to you throughout the week from yours so it would be of great help to respond (take a quick peak of the thread everytime you're on Two Pea's) as you SS may have pertinent questions needing answers regarding your gift although I suggest emailing directly if that's the case - all questionnaires have emails listed.

Please email me if you have further questions.


6-3: Sorry guys I have not been around this past week, for those that visit the NSBRr, you'll notice I just put a post on there regarding a brain surgery that's in the foreseeable future for me.... I am still at my specialist's office and will elaborate further as it's at least 4 to 6 weeks down the road but in the middle of extensive testing & thank you for your as I was MIA for tests. Hugs! Jeanette

6/8: my full update later today. Hugs & thank you for all your thoughts & prayers! Whoever sent the care package card, you must be pretty local as it came yesterday.... Now I'm finally stumped no return address thank you thank you thank you.

PS: Back to swap business, to anyone who missed last week's deadline has three days, beginning today, today to respond to my email swap status update request or I will replace your spot with an angel as it's necessary to keep in communication with everyone including myself. So please respond as I would love for you to continue "your" (general you) participation and it makes it much easier all around.

Hi SassyJoan,

Welcome to the Pod! This looks like your first time here with us. I'd love to have you join our swap, however, the Secret Sister Swaps I host requires you successfully completing 1 swap within the last 6 months prior to joining. I encourage you to browse this forum as there are usually a handful of swaps that open up every 4-6 weeks. I will have 2 more SS's swaps for 2013 and hope to see you join either/both of them in the future.

Jeanette

Okay how do I bookmark this thread?! The button I always pressed to "watch" a thread is gone!

I'm looking forward to Sunday. Anyone else? My son turns 9 sunday and we werent going to celebrate as my aunt (who raised me when my parents passed) just died April 29th. But I'm going to and while I'll probably do it in tears I'm going to enjoy it!

Hope all the moms enjoy the day too!

scrapinCt-
I am so sorry to hear about your aunt. I am also glad to hear that you will enjoy Mothers day and celebrate your son's birthday. I work in hospice and I know your aunt would be happy to!! She would want you to celebrate and remember her and ALL of those great moments you shared in life. So get out there and enjoy the day!!

Happy Mother's Day to EVERYONE who has mentored and loved a child... You are special!!
