I had trouble finding a picture for patient (you get lots of sick people at Dr's) so I googled impatient instead.........
found here......I love it..........
Isn't it great...........you have mostly been very patient but as I know there is a lot of talk about and a few emails here and there asking the BIG QUESTION.....Am I running the SSCS again this year??? Yes I am doing the swap again this year............
So now it's time for the Secret Santa Christmas Swap 2012............
2007 - 80+
2008 - 156

2012 - __?
If you want to see what happened previous years go to my labels and choose Secret Santa Christmas Swap or SSCS08, SSCS09, SSCS10 SSCS11 (or just after xmas there are a pile of posts of presents each year)
The rules are simple
NO 1 Make a beautiful gift (love, time and effort required) – you can make whatever you want eg, bag, wall hanging, stitchery, table runner, Christmas theme (optional) ...send something you would love to receive...
(not something you whip up in a couple of hours)
NO 2 Make a small decoration that can be hung on a Christmas tree (simple or fiddly up to you)
### Don't tell anyone who your SSCS partner is please. This is a secret until they receive their parcel or Christmas Day shhhhhhhhh!!!!!! A different person will be sending to you....
### international postage essential (think about weigh of parcel)
### You need to have an active blog .....posting a couple of times a month.... so your partner can sneak a peek and get ideas of what to make for you and they know you are active.....therefore existing
### Sending (not before 19th November) deadline is 23rd November to ensure your partner gets their present before Christmas (reason for swap)
### Make sure you "thank" your Santa - very important and post about your present when you receive it..........
### If you are difficult to contact you may be dropped from the SSCS.....several times between now and the deadline I email out and you MUST reply...so if you are going away for a week or 2 just let me know
### If everyone can follow the above it will make for another very successful SSCS..... less headaches for me.........
### Any problems make sure you contact me sooner rather than later
Please don't sign up
- if you are not prepared to send (non-senders are named)
- if you’re too busy
- if you’re not committed to making and sending quality handmade gifts
### SIGN UP is a little different this year
If you want to join email (chookybluesscs at gmail dot com) (not my usual address)
I will then email you a link for an online form to complete. (Check your spam if you don't get it)
Swap partners emailed once I get a chance to do it but I post on my blog once I have done them.
PLEASE DON'T BLOG ABOUT THE S W A P UNTIL IT IS CLOSED....UPDATED SWAP CLOSED..........
If you have only come here to join the swap and never visited before this isn’t the swap for you......this is for my regular visitors......
