Christmas Swap Kickoff!

In spite of the fact that my Birthday is Halloween, Christmas is my FAVORITE holiday.
I'm not alone in this, so it was only natural that KellyTabitha, and I had the desire to sponsor a gift swap. I find them fun, a great way to connect with new bloggers, and an awesome way to kick off the holidays!

So what exactly is this Christmas Swap?
It is a Secret Santa that connects you with bloggers across America!
For Canada or other countries, message us separately and we hope to accommodate!

#1 You link up and encourage others to sign up! The more the merrier.
#2 Secret Santa assignments will be made and the fun will begin.
#3 You begin stalking their blog brainstorming fun gifts for them.
#4 Shop for something in the $10-15 range that is a MEANINGFUL or fun gift.
(Think nail polish, cute notepads, fun jewelry, and/or make them something)
#5 Mail out the gift and impatiently await yours to arrive.
#6 Keep it all a secret until we reveal with the final link up in December.

Time Frame Breakdown:

** Notice the date for the final link up has been pushed back for everyone's convenience**

Oh me oh myyyy...for some reason you weren't showing up on my Google Reader feed and then I realized I somehow wasn't following you anymore. Whaaaat??!

Sometimes I want to kick some Google ass. Today is one of those times.

Happy weekend!

Katie said...

What a great idea! I'm so excited. :)

Jessah said...

Alright girl! I'm signing up but I've not had good experiences with swaps in the past. First one...a used item that was hardly a gift and the second time no gift at all. The person totally flakes. True story! So, ya gotta match me with someone legit. ;)

Jean said...

with your birthday being on halloween and you loving christmas, it just reminded me of blink 182's song, I MISS YOU... "And we'll have halloween on Christmas. And in the night we'll wish this never ends...."

Oh my gosh... how FUN! I was just thinking the other day how I want to sign up for a gift swap but I'm going to opt out this year :( I haven't even started Christmas shopping for my own family yet (FAIL!) and I have to look at the reality that baby girl could make her appearance any day. If she comes in the next month or so, I'll be spending my days in the hospital while she gets stronger and healthier. If she comes in December when she's supposed to... well I'll have lost my mind and I probably will forget to mail out the gift. SO! That's my super long, lame excuse as to why I'm not signing up. But if you do this next year? I'm so in!
