I am a sucker for gift exchanges. Receiving a package in the mail is a treat unlike any other. Not to mention how much I enjoy searching for that perfect something for someone else. I confess there is always a
lot bit of stress over exactly what to get my person. What if the person hates my gift? I am not as crafty as many of you are. Heck, lets be honest. I'm not crafty or creative at all. I might be able to write you a poem but don't expect it to rhyme or make much sense. And there is something about giving and putting a smile on someone else's face that makes me happy.
I was quite excited then to hear about this year's Holiday Swap. For details and to sign up, simply visit the Holiday Swap website. The deadline to sign up is November 12th, so you better hurry! Participants will be assigned a Secret Santa who you will then be expected to give a gift to. Someone else will get your name and be sending you a gift. The gifts are meant to be simple and small, so not at all pricey (unless you really want to buy me that E-Reader device I've been eying--only kidding, I promise!). It's open to everyone worldwide, but for those who cannot ship internationally, that is okay too. If you request it, you can be assigned to someone in your own country.
What are you waiting for? Sign up now!
Many thanks to this year's hosts: Amanda, Amy, Ana, Chris, Debi, Eva, Jill and Lenore!
