****2013 SSBG - Secret Sister Birthday Swap ***

2013 Birthday Wish List

http://boards.hgtv.com/eve/for...4011632/m/3623978367

Please be sure to copy/print out your SSBG's WIsh List for future reference.

This swap will require you to mail out only ONE present during the whole year . Your present should be something(s) you made or at least something(s) you know your SSBG would enjoy. Your gift(s) should be valued at approximately $25 and NO more.

Below please see the list of all the Birthdates by month. You should mail your gift (with confirmation) to your SSBG so that she receives it at least a couple days BEFORE her birthday. In your package you will also send her a birthday card and little note letting her know you are thinking of her and who you are. Once mailed please send me your confirmation number.

Each person who receives a gift MUST acknowledge it here on the board and try to post a picture. Share with us all what you received and who your SSBG was. Please be sure to keep this in mind as you know how we all love to see presents and see the pretties that are made.

I have posted the link for the The BIRTHDAY WISH LIST above - please print out the list for your SSBG .

Please, if you find during the course of the year that you are unable to meet your commitment to mail out a prezzie to your SSBG, let me know ASAP! Remember -t will on be One present, one time during the year. I'd appreciate it if I could have a couple ladies volunteer to be a Swap Angel if need be.

"Your name will not appear on the Participant list until you PM me your information such as real name. Birth date, Address, tele # & email addy. Even if you know that I have your info, please send it to me anyway so it'll make it easier for me to make an ongoing list by cutting and pasting you info to a spreadsheet."

Happy Erme - please send me your info so that I can add it to the list.

Nicki,

I am joining this year. I just sent you a PM.

A few years ago I belonged to the Secret Sister Swap for several years. I got burned out and stopped participating.

I like how this is just the birthday month. Much easier on the wallet and plenty of time to make a thing or two.

I am unfortunately sitting out next year. My job might not be renewed, and it looks as if my dad's company is going under, so I am trying not to sign up for things that cost $ for next year to help out. I will watch from the sidelines though, and I have had a blast doing this swap this year!

This is the first I've seen of the sign ups for this! I am glad I didn't miss it...I'll be the first one of the year w/ a bday of Feb. 1 Smile Sending a PM now...

Hi Jan -
our PM's might have crossed - I did get all your info for both swaps. The 2013 SSBG swap doesn't start until Jan 1st so everyone will be waiting for their prezzie again on their 2013 Birthdate. I'll be notifying everyone of their partners once I have the final list of participants.

Sorry, it was bothering me wondering if Nicki was okay so I called her.

She is fine and chuckled as she is actually eating her breakfast--a broccoli, cheese and bacon omelet and home fries!

She promises to post later on this evening, so as Paul Harvey used to say, "Stand by for news"...

Hi girls! So sorry about just getting to sending out your partners - I am going to start right now... so.. who wants to be the first one notified - well besides KC as I told her when she called to check in on me.

Once you get your names please confirm that you have received it. We have a total of 29 Birthday Girls playing in 2013.... some of you might be getting notified by Quiltingnewbie as she is helping me out so that I can be surprised as to who has my name.

BTW - I'm betting I'm not the only person who eats a breakfast meal for breakfast! Yummy!
