A HiCCuP... NoW FiXeD

Although only small and very easy to correct... this silly swap mama paired up two lovely ladies that were together last year. I always check my spreadsheet to see who has swapped previously... BUT I didn't check LAST years santa swap list... again so silly of the swap mama... but all is good now as two other lovely ladies consented to change partners. Everyone now has a NeW friend at the other end of the cyber space connection... who is only a key stroke away!

Somehow another swapper put her name down but her comment "went away" never to be seen again. Luckily this swapper noticed that her name was not down on the sidebar... so that was remedied quickly too.

Now I hope we have 86 HaPPy eLVes out there busily planning their secret gifts!

One "ELF" has already completed her "sack"... isn't this just gorgeous!!! So whoever is "her" partner... all I can say is LuCKy YoU !

Time to ReGisTeR

Yes today is the day to leave a comment to register your name for this swap.
Please leave your name/comment ON THIS POST ONLY.

You can read all the rules and guidelines by clicking on the TAB in the header above. Please take this commitment seriously and only sign up if you WILL fulfil it.

I have said that you only have to send ONE handmade gift in a Christmas theme... but I do envisage that most of the gifts would be handmade. Of course the 5 remaining gifts DO NOT have to be Christmas based.

I realise that partners will get to know each other and likely to be stalking each others blog... but you may like to publish a pic of a gift you are making on this site instead. Please do not hesitate to email a pic to me and I will post it here on this blog... anonymously of course. That way we can all share in the excitement.

I hope you will all have lots of FuN 
joining in this 2013 Santa Sack Swap.
