    Ok well I would LOVE to play but here's the thing.....I'm a smoker and I GET how people feel about receiving things from smokers, so with that said, would you rather I not participate? I have to ask I don't want to offend anybody. Wendy (PS I don't drink, don't do drugs, gave up sex years ago....so I smoke. work and quilt)

    It's really simple. Rules are easy.
    You join, you'll have about a month to shop, then about a month to get your package put together, in the mail and have it delivered to the recipient. Just follow thru with the rules and all is good!
    ***Word of note....YOU WILL NOT be receiving from the person you are sending to.

    Oh, I am quite the baker, so come on over. Don't know if you guys remember, but the day of the reveal, I made a BIG plate of cookies and took pictures of them for all of you to enjoy. You all are welcome to stop by and actually eat some. The more YOU eat, the less I will eat.

    Yes, DDIL and I are going Thursday, probably get there around lunch time or so. I would love to go over the weekend, but this is the BIG girl scout yard sale this weekend, so I am helping DDIL and DGD by doing a bunch of baking.

    The cookies end up being mostly for show, to make everyone drool, but they sure make the house smell good.

    Wendy, just put a dryer sheet in your package and it will smell good when it is opened.

    Smokers are welcome. There are many who smoke. Just make sure your package doesn't smell like cigs and all is well.

    AMEN to that! I'm one that can't stand smoke and there's nothing worse than opening up a smokey pkg! It's because of this that I am reconsidering signing up. I have experienced this more than I care to count.

    Maybe this smoking subject is something that needs to be added to our "preferences" when we join the Secret Santa. I have an allergy to cigarrette or cigar smoke, feel like my throat is closing up, and have a terrible coughing fit. I have to hold my breath when entering most restaurants because of the heavy smoke smell outside the entrances. I also can't do perfumes for the same reason. I only use unscented products when doing my quilting.

    Grann, I can definitely relate to the holding the breath before entering restaurants. I snickered because I thought I was the only one that did that.
    And I agree about adding that to our preferences. I would really HATE to miss out on the fun because I hate it (smoke).

    Glad to see you here again - it's been a while! I may even get in on this deal this year, now that you're giving us plenty of warning!!!

    Oh dear - ditto with the smoke problem. Are we going to have problems?
