Default COMPLETE Not so secret tote swap

This is a not so secret swap.

Due by Jan. 20th!

When sign ups are complete you will be assigned your partner on the thread so you can ask questions to help with your selections for them.

This is a one on one swap so please don't flake! Splitcoast has rules about flaking on secret sister swaps.

Here is what you will need to do:
1. Choose a tote bag, (not a paper gift bag)
2. Add something sweet (like candy, cookies etc)
3. Add something cozy (like toasty socks, gloves, scarf)
4. Find out a little something about your partners paper crafting habits and add at least two appropriate items.
5. Create a card to add to the package.
6. One thing that is a total surprise.
7. Snowman

Be sure to mail on time so your secret sister won't be disappointed for the holidays.

Who will join me?
Swap partners: You will send to the person right after you on the list. The last person on the list sends to the first person on the list.

I love the idea, Janice, you know that, as we have both hosted these in the past! But I'm concerned about the due date... maybe too close to Christmas with all else going on... wondering how many will join because of that?
Ironically I had just unpacked some of the totes I have from the past tote swaps and love them. I'm in if you can get enough participants, or if you move the due date out to maybe January or February sometime.
Question: Do the tote, warm item, ornament have to be handmade?

If I moved the due date to January 20th and changed the ornament to a snowman would that work better for everyone?

I'll join! I've been sort of sitting out swaps lately but this one sounds just too fun to pass up! US only please. Question though - does the tote have to be made or can it be purchased? And is there a minimum size?

Thanks!

Questions I'd like to know from a NSSS:

Favorite Colors?
Hobbies/Desired Theme Ideas (i.e. reading, travel, scrapbooking, shoes, games, etc.)?
Favorite Treats or anything you don't like/eat (any allergies)?
Paper Crafting Favorites/Wish List for ideas?
Any particular likes?
Any particular dislikes?
Any thing else about you that would help me to put together a wonderful tote+ for you?

I would love to sign up, provided that the items DON'T have to be home-made. I am willing to send to the US, AND would love to receive from the US if possible.

Will you be listed a survey to fill out? This is on your list of what to send

4. Find out a little something about your partners paper crafting habits and add at least two appropriate items.

?????? At a "just thinking about it" stage.
