October Secret Sister Swap

Oh sugar!!  seriously!  i keep telling myself to pre-post this and well, i'm always forgetting!!  call me BONKERS!!  or crazy...  LOL

Happy FALL!!!  i really do enjoy fall and everything associated with the season...  like my previous SSS post, i wish Hawaii experienced the seasons like those in the big states...  Fall brings a sense of warmth and togetherness...  or atleast that's how i feel...  oh and can't forget the fall yummies...  like pumpkin pie or in my case pumpkin spice frapps from Starbucks...  mmmm mmm good!

October is all about TREATS or if you prefer tricks!  THEME for OCTOBER is TRICKS OR TREATS {no silly sisters, tricks aren't just for kids ;)}!  create a 'treat' themed project such as a candy holder, or candy wrapper, etc or whip up a special trick instead of simple cards, for example a tri-fold or waterfall...  Now, i understand some of you may not celebrate Halloween in general, so this is not Halloween specific...   You may create Halloween themed items if you want to or incorporate some how and if for any reason i'm pairing you to someone who doesn't celebrate Halloween, i'll let you know when i pass on the info...  **ANYONE THAT DOES NOT CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN BUT WANTS TO PARTICIPATE, COULD YOU PLEASE NOTE THAT TO ME BY EMAIL. Thanks!**
Deadline for sign-ups is October 1st by 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.

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 already signed up:

Karen, Leanne, Gail, Sheila, Theresa, Kathy, Charleen, Miyuki, Linda T., Jayne and Mary B.

Please let me know ASAP if you are unable to participate for any reason. No questions asked, just please let me know. Thanks!!

**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.

NEW PLAYERS, please email me at krisnal5868 at hotmail dot com to sign up for April 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...

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 November is 'Giving THANKS'!!
