November Secret Sister Swap

Wow!!  we are just days away from November!!  has this year gone by super fast or is it just me?!?!  I can't believe it's almost year end...  the plus side of all of this is we are now heading into holiday season...  for me that probably means weight gain...  LOL...

Theme for NOVEMBER is GIVE THANKS...  create your swap along the lines of this theme...  it can be directed to your secret sister or a "thank you" creation in general...  it can be a card, alterable item, 3D item, treat, etc...  whatever you deem to be your way of giving or saying THANKS!!

i'm sure we ALL have someone or something to be thankful for this year...  i for one, have many things to be thankful for in this year alone, but of course #1 is life and family and friends....  what are you exceptionally thankful for this year?!

deadline for swap sign ups is October 31st at midnight HST..

Reflection of my mini rules for this swap (Please take note of the blurbs in red):

1. You can swap anything you think is appropriate. Such as cards, 3d projects, gift tags, altered items, etc. You are not restricted to just a card for each swap... for example, you can do a card this month and gift tags next month, etc... be creative and use your talents! Many of you do not limit yourself to cards, there are some that do awesome jewelry, altered items and so on, so this is the swap to make something special and surprise someone... can't get creative? no problem, you are free to sub in a RAK too!

2. I kindly ask that you please send out your swaps before month's end. Please take into consideration snail mail timing. If you cannot mail your swap before the end of the month, you are given until the 5th day of the following month to do so. This will allow some time for your Secret Sister to receive it. If nothing has been received within 10 days past the end of the month, i will not include you in future sign ups. Please friends, let's play fair.

**To clear up any confusion: your participation is monthly (unless otherwise stated by you) by confirming your participation through email or comment on the sign up posts. if i do not hear from you by the sign up deadline, it is assumed you will not be participating for the month. if it is easier for you to sign up a month ahead or for a few months, etc. let me know too.

you don't have to wait for me to email you your swap info, get those creative minds going and start creating!!  remember, anything you create will put a smile on someone's face!!

Looking ahead, theme for December is 'Merry Holidays'....
