CLOSED...SPOIL ME ROTTEN, PARTNER
 
Love happy mail?? Hate Mondays?? Then this is the swap for you!

READ ON......................

For this swap you will SPOIL your partner rotten for one month. You will purchase a gift of at least a $20.00 minimum from your partners wish list/survey.So, how do you spoil her rotten?? Throughout the month you will also send a card at least one card and one handmade item....more if you like!!

Sign-ups will end on April 30 and packages are due to your partner June 1-30.

When you complete your survey/wish list, please give as much detail as possible. Links are even better. You cant be spoiled if you are not specific :)

You MUST post a thank you or pic. (pics are waaayyy more fun, hint hint) within 48 hours of receiving your "spoiled rotten goodies". If for some unforseen reason you are not able to post, please PM me so that I am aware of your situation. If their is not a pic, thank you, or PM you will be considered a flaker and all the rules of a secret sister swap will apply.

Oh, what does hating Mondays have to do with this swap?? Absolutely nothing............ other than to get your attention :)

Now, who wants to play??

Your partner will be the person signing up directly AFTER you. I will be #1 and be sending to #2 and so on and so on. The last person signing up will send to the first person signing up (that would be me) :) THere will be two groups, one for US shipping and one for Canada shipping. Please mention in your post if you are a US or Canadian shipper. This will give you plenty of time to get to know your partner and to shop and find that great deal that you know she will just love!!

Please PM the person above you with your adreess. This is the person that will be sending to YOU

Secret Sister Rules for those of you whom are not familar follow in the next post.

gramak8e 03-10-2013 06:25 PM

SECRET SISTER SWAP RULES:
Since Secret Sister swaps are typically swaps done one-on-one, each sister is treated as a kind of hostess. We have the "main" hostess who gathers all the info and distributes the names and info. But, the sisters are ultimately responsible for sending their goodies.

That being the case, please note that Secret Sister swaps are treated by the moderators just a bit differently than most swaps. The following rule applies to all participating Secret Sister swappers:

Hostesses that fail to return swaps will be banned from the entire Splitcoaststampers site.

In other words, each person participating in the secret sister swaps is considered a hostess. Failing to uphold your end of a secret sister swap is considered stealing (and ultimately mail fraud if the postal system is used) and will not be tolerated.

By posting this, we don't mean to ruin the fun of Secret Sister swaps. We just want all participants to be aware that giving is just as fun as receiving and getting gypped just plain sucks. Please consider this when signing up to participate in a secret sister swap.

SURVEY:
1. What is your favorite color?
Orange, purple, gray, silver

2. What would you like to recieve as a handmade item? This may include card kits, beading, crochet, baking, absolutely anything as long as it is handmade.
I love card kits and images! Handmade embellishments/card candy, scrapbook titles/borders. But, I'm happy with anything. I love trying out new things that I wouldn't've thought of on my own.

3. Where is your favorite place to shop and item to shop for? Crafts, clothes, jewelry, knick knacks, etc.
The only crafty stores I have locally are Hobby Lobby and Jo-Ann's so I either shop there or online. I like to look and see what is available or what can be used for crafting. I don't use stickers. I like to alter things. I don't really wear jewelry. Clothes, I'm a thrift store girl. Target is always fun to browse. And, books, I love books! I collect frogs, have both a dog and a cat. I'm a nurse so always looking for nurse-related items. I have two boys.

My Wish List:
1. copics - I'd like to try a couple before investing in them (any colors or styles)
2. embossing folders (I like the A2 size ef's; brand doesn't matter)

Hi, Kate! I hope I did that correctly.

gramak8e 03-10-2013 07:50 PM

jessthenurse 03-10-2013 07:56 PM

So, I need to post links to the items on my wish list? I listed quite a few general categories; figured it would make it easier.

jessthenurse 03-10-2013 08:03 PM

I went back and added links to a couple of the items and clarified the broad ones.

Thanks for the welcome by the way! My name's Jessika but go by Jess.

gramak8e 03-10-2013 08:03 PM

Well, I would love to know some names (or a name) of what particular embossing folders or copics, etc. you would like, for example.

gramak8e 03-10-2013 08:05 PM

Indiana?? I have a good friend in Valapariso (if thats spelled right)...are you near there at all?

Angie1974 03-10-2013 09:59 PM

Sign me up, please! I promise to complete the questions soon!

sek111sbc 03-10-2013 10:11 PM

I may do this one....have to complete another first...hmmm

gramak8e 03-11-2013 06:12 AM

Welcome Angie :)

gramak8e 03-11-2013 06:14 AM

Sande...Don't be thinking so much, just join us :)

jessthenurse 03-11-2013 12:28 PM

Good afternoon, ladies!

All is quiet here as the bf is at work, the kids are being picked up from school by their dad and the animals are all curled up on my bed.

Kate ~ as far as the copics go, I have barely looked at them in the stores! I've seen the lovely coloring that can be done with them here on SCS but other than that I'm a complete dunce in that area. I'll have to look them up later as well as the embossing folders.

Angie1974 03-11-2013 12:57 PM

Hey everyone! Gonna do some crafting with a friend at my place. Yay! I have another card-making pal!!

jejenc 03-11-2013 02:58 PM

I would like 1 spot please, Thanks!

gramak8e 03-11-2013 03:00 PM

Welcome Heather....happy to have you join us!!

jessthenurse 03-11-2013 04:58 PM

Hello, Heather!

Kate ~ are the US and Canada groups going to be separate?

gramak8e 03-11-2013 05:32 PM

Yes there are two separate groups

jessthenurse 03-11-2013 06:34 PM

Thanks, Kate!

Valparaiso is about two hours north of me. I live in a little bitty town about 20 miles from Kokomo and am about an hour north of Indianapolis.

dogloverkd 03-11-2013 06:44 PM

I'd like to join us shipping group
Thanks Danielle

jessthenurse 03-11-2013 06:47 PM

Kate ~ I went back and added links to some embossing folders. I looked at the copic catalog online and have no idea where I'd even start!

misswitch 03-11-2013 07:19 PM

I have copics and honestly the only ones I really use are the flesh tones

gramak8e 03-11-2013 07:37 PM

Thanks for the links!! Knowing you don't have any copics helps out a lot too...I might be able to help you out with that :)
