January 2012 Secret Sister Sign ups

Well, the year has really flown past us... can't help but ask... "where does the time go?" guess we just loose track of it when having fun!! i THANK all who have supported this swap this past year, we've made it to SSS' ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! YAY!!!! i truly hope you are all enjoying the surprises and finding out who your secret sisters are! i do enjoy the 'behind the scenes' work of putting it together... =)

January Secret Sister sign ups begin today and will close on December 30th at midnight HST... sign up now by posting a comment here or by emailing me... There will be NO THEME for January... ANYTHING GOES!

Here's a little blurb on my mini rules (Please take note on the items 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.

PREVIOUS PLAYERS, i have your info so all you have to do is comment that you will be participating on this post... here's a list of those who have signed up for their spots:

Kim, Karen and Gail

Ladies, if you signing up has changed since your last request, please let me know ASAP... thank you!! **If it is easier for you to sign up a month or so ahead, that is totally fine too!

NEW PLAYERS, please email me at krisnal5868 at hotmail dot com to sign up for January with the subject SSS or Secret Sister Swap and the following info: Name, Address, Blog URL (if you have one) and Best Email to contact you... i will send you a confirmation email that i have received your info...

**Please note that swap info is sent out by the 2nd day of the swap month. If you miss the sign up deadline, it doesn't hurt to shoot me an email and ask if you can still play. There may be a chance i'm still sorting through the players and can add you in...
