It's Time...SSS



For the Secret Santa Soiree to kick off! We had a lot of fun last year, a total of 76 bloggers participated. If you would like to know more about the SSS click here to see how it all started last year. If you didn't join us last year and are considering joining this year I hope you will take the time to read some of the previous SSS posts. There are a few minor changes this yr *see below-after my confession

I know it seems early to be thinking about the Holidays but I will need time to match everyone up with a partner and still give you plenty of time to shop and ship...

Here is a general break down of whats to come(I will post specific rules along with the q&a at a later date) feel free to click the above link to read last years 411

*You must have a blog to participate*

  • From 9.15 to 10.15 I will be taking sign ups via McLinky-feel free to snag a SSS button place it on your blog and direct your friends to this post so they can sign up too-The More the Merrier!

  • During the sign up time frame I will post the specific rules and a Q&A that you will need to fill out and email me(q&a to be sent via email)

  • Around the first of November I will email you who your SSS exchange partner will be giving you plenty of time to shop before the shipping deadline(TBD)









My confession for today: We got SOAKED @ the OU game, a post will follow soon

Please sign McLinky if you want to be a part of the SSS-so we have an idea of how many will be participating this year.
*minor changes
I have set up a 'special' email at secretsantasoiree (at) gmail (dot) com so all SSS emails will come from that addy. In the very near future you will be asked to email me at the above address confirming your participation, then you will be emailed a Q&A that once you fill out and hit send will go straight into a google doc form, making things much easier this year. Also the price limit will be $20 before shipping. MORE INFO TO COME

  1. Hey Georgie! That's me first on Mr. Linky - a name would have helped. Sorry. I just got too excited.

    Will add the button when I get home to desktop - Netbook cutting and pasting is a pain in the elf.

    Thanks for doing this again! Em

  28. oh girl, i have been waiting almost a year for this! i remember finding your blog, and being too late, and thinking how cool the whole thing (and you) was.

    as you know, i do have a blog, but i may have to assume a new identity, as i think i have pissed off all the mommy bloggers. if i go into the blog-witness protection program, i will let you know.
