The Results Are In!!

Okay, ladies....this should be an exciting swap! 24 people are playing, so this will be fun! Most of the players are new to the swap, and some are pretty talented in the handmade gifts, I hear:) I drew the names tonight with Caroline's help and there was no cheating involved...I PROMISE!

So, without further ado, here are the results for the Christmas Blog Swap 2008. The person under your name is the person you are buying for. The Last person will buy for the first person listed below:

Jan "Jenius"

So if you don't know your person, click on their name, visit their blog and get a feel for who they are. Hey, why you're at it, click on everyone's name and get to know each other. Blogs are a great way to meet new friends:)

I will be sending each player their person's mailing and email adresses so look for it. Remember to try to get your gift out by December 2nd or 3rd and also remember to post about the gift you received on your blog once you get it in the mail. If you don't have a blog, please email me a picture of your gift so I can post it for you (Tellagraham2@aol.com). Enjoy and have fun!

All Aboard?!

The Christmas Blog Swap is now underway! Consider this the official invitation. After taking the poll, it looks like most people want to do a creative swap. This means that you can do anything you want pertaining to Christmas. Examples of this could include:

-an assortment of Christmas ornaments
-a nice Christmas decoration for the home
-Christmas tea towels with some type of Christmas goodie
-a Christmas CD
-The possibilities are ENDLESS--especially for you creative girls who make stuff:)

Please make sure your Christmas swap gift is $25 including shipping. The RSVP starts now!!Just leave your "YES" answer in the comments. If you want to opt out this swap, no problem! Just please don't leave a comment. Let's try to use the comment box only for positive RSVP's. The last day to reply will be next Tuesday, November 25th. On that night, I will draw the names and have them displayed on this blog by Wednesday morning. This will give you time during the Thanksgiving sales to buy your swap gift. I will also provide each player with their person's mailing information. If your blog is private, please make sure your person has access.

Please try to have your gift sent off by Tuesday, Decmeber 2nd so your person can get the most out of your gift this Christmas season! And please remember to display the gift you received on your blog as a thank you to your swap giver AND to show the rest of us what you received! And remember...presentation is everything!

This really is a fun activity when everyone plays right. If you know you can't commit to the rules/dates, please don't play. And, once again, if you are an unknown lurker, sorry....you need to be a known commenter or someone who another faithful commenter can vouch for:)

Let the fun begin!

Hello fella blogger girls! Welcome to our new swapping blog, which is still in the works.

We need a nifty name for it so please think of one and then let us know in the comment section.

This blog is public and is a way to let more than just one person host the seasonal blog swap.

This weekend, November will be half over, and we need to get going on the next seasonal swap!

Some suggestions have been given for our next swap. Please take a moment to take the polls on the side bar of this page so you can help decide what type of swap to do for this winter season.

More will be posted later after the polls are over, but keep checking this blog to be in the know of what's going on.
