12-1 - My gosh today is our due date to have your package IN THE MAIL. I cannot believe it is already upon us. Tonight I will be going over my list to check off who posted they have mailed with a DC or contact with me. Be sure you contact me by this EVENING with a status update if you haven't yet in order to remain in current good swap standing.

11-21: We are at the home stretch, due in the mail on Dec 1st, 8 days away. Please make sure you either post your delivery tracking number or email it to me.....swap requirement.

Also do not forget to reveal yourself.....

11-15: please update me with your latest swap communication

10-27: assignments are being emailed out as I type. I am still under the weather and my loopy med is kicking in so I will continue this first thing in the morning. Night-night

10-24:
Good morning SS's! I am still receiving questionnaires as I type and currently have only 3 spots left before I close this swap out. I will accept questionnaires until midnight tonight PST, Monday the 24th, after that I will be doing our assignments. Anyone getting excited! I sure am, this swap is my absolute favorite and always has the largest participation....30-35 SS's from the last 7 years, whoo hoo!. I have ornaments on my tree that I fondly brings to mind past swaps. I hope you get the opportunity to forge an online friendship with each gal - your SS & the one shopping for you. I have and my Pea friends are some of my closest friends I have! Love you all.

This is our annual Secret Sister Exchange Swap that includes an ornament in addition to scrapbook/craft supplies. I did send out a questionnaires for those that have participated in the swap from past years and also contacted me to join again, however, this swap is still open for those that would like to join. Full details such as swap requirements, *flaking* and so forth will be posted in the OP later, as for now here's the basics:

Scrapbook/Craft Supplies $15 minimum
Personal Goodies $10 minimum including an ornament - details provided in completed SS questionnaire
Total Swap Value: $25, please note these are swap minimums and there is no obligation to exceed these

DUE IN THE MAIL SATURDAY DECEMBER 1ST

Last day to sign up with completed questionnaires is SEPTEMBER 22. NO EXCEPTIONS.

Please email me your interest and I will send your questionnaire right away:

jeanettezamora@yahoo.com


Below are my guidelines of what's expected when participating in my swaps. Grant it, I cannot "guarantee" one will receive what her heart desires, however, when a SS does follow my guidelines pertaining to her questionnaire, then her gift package should be well received with various products from somewhere on her list. I do my darnest to weed out "flakers" - I haunt them down to the best of my ability & if nothing else, do my best to give the ones w/out something's, with the help of an angel or two that always come forth to step in. The "flaker" will NOT be able to participate in any of my swaps henceforth. I also communicate this knowledge to those that host other swaps on 2 Peas & vice-versa. This does help to create a great swapping environment for all to enjoy.

How to read and respond to the questionnaire when shopping:

By filling out the questionnaire, you are expressing interest in participating in our swap, therefore, I am concluding that you understand the requirements & will set forth to do your best to adhere to them. Please do not send past swap items or opened scrapbook products unless who you are being Secret Sister to does not have a problem with that. This swap is for new, unopened, unused scrapbook/stamp/paper craft items. Also it is imperative to note that product sent which is not listed on the Secret Sister's questionnaire is not allowed unless you are going above the minimum ( I set the minimum $ for swap continuity).

Examples: Please do not send brads to a gal who DOES NOT list brads anywhere on her questionnaire or wish-list. On the upside, please list products you enjoy using, like to receive & wouldn't mind having.

Also be mindful that when you list your favorite companies, that is allowing your Secret Sister another option of finding goodies she may wish to shop for you such
Example: Echo Park is listed as a favorite company. Your Secret Sister would be right on track by sending you Echo Park chipboard, ribbon, papers, etc UNLESS you specify otherwise - list you do not want chipboard, ribbon, etc. This note was added so that everyone understands their responsibilities as a Secret Sister which helps to ensure a great swap that we all, as Secret Sisters, can enjoy.

Swap communication guidelines:
Last but not least, you will be required to maintain communication with your Secret Sister on our swap thread.

I will be sending the directions on how to create a "secret id" once you have filled out your questionnaire & joined the swap.

Communication MUST be made, at least weekly, on our thread.

If you are not communicating weekly, I will try to contact you myself and if I do not hear from you within 3's days of time, I will freeze your place OR pull you from the swap with an angel in place.

By all means, please feel free to email your SS & send E-cards (just various ways SS's have communicated in the past,) in addition to Message Board posts. I, for one, like to utilize email, e-cards, & posts when communicating.

For those that are new, we welcome you aboard! You'll find we are fun group and love to communicate (that's evident by our thread pages). Emphasis is placed on communicating with your SS and vice-versa. I do request posting to/from SS's weekly but you'll see that conversations comes and go several times throughout the week. Not everyone posts that often due to a variety of factors and I cannot guarantee that your SS will be as vocal except for the required weekly posts (or I hope so). Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have as I'm always here, open and willing.

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 Two Pea's information for the rest (password, address (that will not be displayed, email) - but do not list your 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 Safari 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 (I suggest emailing directly if that's the case - all questionnaires have emails listed).

Please email me if you have further questions [/color]

Will email another round of questionnaires this evening.

Such a great response that I feel this may be closed well before the 22nd. Our total will be 30 SS's with no late additions - enforced due to constraints of already assigned members.

All questionnaires have been sent as of this time stamp.

Please make sure to finish them and email to me by this Sunday. You can always amend after your SS receives it during the initial phase (just not so much during the swap as your SS may have already got said items).

Thanks,
Jeanette!

I am new here interested in this swap. I am not new to swapping I host and swap on another site. I wondered though if swaps are open to just scrappers as I am only a stamper and paper artist. I like to make 3d items decorated with paper as well as cards and I do like making jewelry.
