Secret Santa Soiree 2010

I know Halloween isn't even here yet and I am talking Santa and Christmas...I did a post with all the 411 which can be found here

Just to recap:
♥ In order to be a part of the SSS exchange you must be a blogger then you need to email me(on my sidebar), I will send you a Q&A form that you need to fill out asap and hit submit on the form, please do not email me your answers back-I have everything set up in a google doc this is a much easier way to handle groups. I have already sent out forms to those of you that have emailed me, so if you haven't answered the Q&As yet please do so now...

The Deadline for sign ups is Oct 29th. On Nov 1st I will send everyone their partners name along with a copy of their getting to know you info(q&a), you can start shopping and shipping at your leisure just please keep the shipping deadline in mind.

♥ Once you have submitted your Q&A Please sign the McLinky below

♥ The date you must ship by will be Dec 15th-feel free to get creative with your return address while keeping in mind the rules and regs of USPS or your shipping carrier of choice

♥ Everyone must purchase a Delivery Confirmation(DC) and email me with the DC#-This serves as your receipt

The spending limit will be $20(not including shipping costs OR DC cost) if you choose to spend more PLEASE do not be upset if your SSS partner does not. You can spend the money on one item or you can break it down into mini gifts-the choice is yours, be creative, have fun and enjoy...

♥ One thing that sets this SSS apart from others is the fact that it is a SECRET Santa Soiree, meaning you will not/I will not disclose who your partner is...This is where the BIG Change is this year...in the past I have required you to blog about the gift you received-This year YOU will BLOG about the gift YOU SENT to your exchange partner without disclosing your SSS partners name/blog when you do your post-you will do this with photos prior to shipping...(Much Thanks to Coloradolady for suggesting this) the idea is that everyone will visit each others blogs(via the mclinky) during this Soiree and once their gift arrives they will immediately know who to Thank! I will try and do posts letting you know that someone has shipped...

♥ We have 2 wonderful gentlemen(who participated last year) playing along again this year-IF you have an issue sending a guy a gift OR having a guy send you a gift email me ASAP-I can personally vouch for both of these guys, But I do have to ask...ALSO...since I am doing this solo this year, I will obviously know who has my name-hence kinda taking the surprise element out for you...so if you would rather not have my name please let me know as well =)


So far we have 25 wonderful participants and I am starting to get super excited! If you would like to join us just follow the steps above...if you got an email from me this morning and have not signed the linky below PLEASE do so now...

If you have any questions feel free to contact me♥

If you would like to add a button to your blog here are a couple to choose from...

My Confession for today: Jingle Bells Jingle Bells Jingle all the way...


  1. Ooooo - I'm so tempted. This didn't work out so well for me last year. I liked the gift giving and all, but ... well, maybe.

  2. Good Luck, Georgie! I'm sure it will turn out great.

  3. Thanks so much for being the host again Georgie!

  4. i hope it all turns out well. i am a little leery of the whole "secret" side of it all (do you have angels lined up incase people don't come through?), but i think it's cool that you are having the people participating post what they GIVE...awesome!!

  5. Got mine up and posted....will have the package in the mail tomorrow. Wonder if they will like what is inserted? You can see here!

  6. gosh I hope i inserted this????
