Cool Stamp a New Friend - Next Round Begins September 1st!!!

AS OF AUGUST 2006 NEW THREAD IS HERE:


http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...d.php?t=176612






WHO ARE DIVINE SECRET SIBLINGS?
Divine Secret Siblings is a usergroup here on SCS. We are a group of stampers (demos and non-demos) who send cards and gifts to each other for a 4 month period. At the end of the 4th month we reveal to our secret sibling who we are . Big Siblings are the senders, Little Siblings are the receivers. You will be both a big and little ss. See the FAQ section below for more info.

We have 3 groups to choose from, listed in order of requirements:
Group A: 3-4 cards and a $5 gift each month or 1 $20 gift at the end (to be worked out between Secret Sister pairs) with a reveal letter.

Group B: 2-3 cards and a $5 gift each month or 1 $20 gift at the end (to be worked out between Secret Sister pairs) with a reveal letter.

Group C: 1 card each month, and only one $10 gift at the end of the round with a reveal letter.

Join us for Round 3 2006 - Beginning September 1st and ending December 31st 2006.

REQUIREMENTS!

1.PLEASE “PM” the FOLLOWING INFO. to: Christine P, if your SCS username begins with #, A-M or jm_donahoe, if your SCS username begins with M-Z. DO NOT POST YOUR PERSONAL INFO TO THIS THREAD FOR SECURITY REASONS!!!!!

Are you willing to send out of your country?
Are you willing to be a swap angel?

2. Join our UserGroup - The Divine Secret Siblings
This is our special forum where you can chat, post your preferences and info for your SS to read, and post thank yous. Click on "user CP" (upper left), then "Group Memberships" (left column) click on “join group” for Divine Secret Siblings. You will be approved after we receive your info and you will have full access to our special forum.

3. Set up an anonymous email account when you receive the information with who you are sending to. This is for verifying your little sibling's information, and deciding whether or not you will do small gifts each month, or one large gift at the end of the round (for groups A and B only). We are sure to have typos and you want your creations going to the right address. This is also useful when you have a card or package going out a bit late and want to let your little ss know. We have a thread in our forum which explains how to set a secret email account up. You also may choose to continue an on-going communication with your little sis during the round.

4. Send the required amount of cards and gifts for the group you have chosen to join.

5. Post Thank You's for each card/gift received in our specially designated forum. This is so very important!


Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is a Swap Angel?
If someone flakes out (ie. doesn't send to their sibling, or acknowledge gifts), we ask those of you who volunteered to send a card to the sibling who didn't receive anything. Everyone who signs up should follow through with their commitment (flakers will be dropped if commitment can not be met). More details are posted in the Secret Sibling Forum which you will get access to when you join "Divine Secret Siblings".

Q: WHEN & HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY SECRET SIBLING INFO?
You will receive your secret sibling name and information as soon as we swap names; this is generally the week before the new round begins. For those that join after the round has already begun, we may need to wait for more to join before swapping. The information for your little sibling will be sent to you by one of our Divine Coordinators through your SCS "Private Message".

Q: DOES THE EMAIL INFO NEEDED (above) INCLUDE MY SECRET EMAIL?
No, we just need the email that you will use regularly. The secret email is just for your own use to be able to communicate with your little SS and not give away who you are. The email address we need is one that we can contact you at if there is an issue, and one that your big SS can use to communicate with you. Although, it is perfectly ok to use your secret email as BOTH if you wish!

Q: DOES THIS GUARRANTEE ME A NEW BEST FRIEND?
Not necessarily. Some of our members love the program as a way to swap ideas and see a style of stamping that is not their own, but may be a bit more reserved to share their personal selves. Some of us love to make a new friend right away, and some of us just enjoy a temporary penpal of sorts. Each round is a completely different experience and we hope you get something out of each round you spend with us!
Any Questions, Please ask!

Next Round begins September 1st! Reveals for Round 2 2006 are due August 31st!!
