Default Secret Sister Updates

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are having as much fun with this Secret Sister group as I am. I've already received 2 cards from my SS, and we are only 1 week into the first month!! How great is that? Judging from the "thank you" posts on the main thread and from the pictures in the gallery, there are some very active Secret Sisters out there!

If you haven't done so already, maybe you could take a few minutes to send a first card out to your SS this week. I know we are all busy with work, family, and life, but we all love to stamp and probably have an extra card or 100 sitting around!

Another thing that many people are doing is setting up anonymous email accounts at Yahoo, MSN, Google, etc. This is a great way to get to know your SS and for her to get to know you! If you decide that anon. email is something you want to do, remember to not use your real name in the set up of the email account. For example, when it asks you to provide your first name, you could use "Secret" and use "Sister" for your last name. This doesn't have to be your SS email address, but just your first and last name. If you put your real name in those fields during the set up, your SS will see who you are. If you have any questions about how to set up an anonymous email, just post them here. Someone will help you out!

For the "receiving end" perspective, remember that the minimum for this round is 1 card per month. If you haven't received anything from your SS by the end of the month, please let Robin (cravh) or me know. We have a few ladies who said they could be angels if needed.

Lastly, if you change your SCS name or email, please let Robin or me know. We'll pass that info along to your SS and update our spreadsheets!

I'm havin' fun with this SS thing!

Hugs,
Christine

I also can't wait! My SS did set up an email account to contact me with and has said hi. Keep checking my mailbox and I'm sure one day soon there will be a nice surprise in there.

I want to thank my Secret Sister, I received a package from here today, and man was I suprised, A waterbottle filled with chocolate and lots of ice tea pouches, and I need to take a picture of the cutest thing she has made, around the bottle there was an elastic band attached with what I think was polyshrink flowers and leaves and stamped on it with the brushstroke alphabet set: secret sister.

Thank you so much, you have made my day, and hopefully it willl get really warm here in Maryland so I get to use my new waterbottle soon.

I got the cutest Easter card from secret sister yesterday! It is so cute!!! I'm not sure which set it is, but it's a cute basket and a tiny Happy Easter. I really love it and the colors you used!

I'll upload it into the SS gallery as soon as Daven finishes working his magic so everyone can see it!

Thanks Secret Sister!!!
