    Oooooohhhhhh- if food is allowed, someone is going to get some of my DD's brownies. She has been selling them wholesale & via internet for almost a year. The recipe is so secret that I don't have it. If I want 'em, I have to buy 'em.

    Terri - please give us a hint about the rules of what we can and can't include, other than the $20 limit. I couldn't get in the swap last year, so I'm a newbie this year.

    Sign me up. It sounds like fun especially the secret recipe brownies. Will the rules be posted here?

    I don't know about mailing the goodies. Last year we just "cyber ate" them. And BTW, I LOVE peanut butter fudge!

    No worries, you can just put on your request that you wish to not be hooked up with a smoker. I'm sure the smokers will understand.
    But, with that said....I am a smoker and have never had anyone complain about what I have sent them. Most smokers don't smoke in their homes anymore, so they don't disseminate the smell.
    But....I will do my best to hook any one up with a nonsmoker if need be.

    I have received packages from smokers and even though they say they don't smoke in the house or in their sewing room, it still smells of smoke. It's like the no one knows I have a litter box thing. LOL. The smell is just in them and on them no matter where they smoke and transfers on all they touch. I don't mind as long as it is not overpowering.
    Got fabric?

    Rules are really easy.
    You just fill out a short form stating likes/dislikes, preferences, allergies (food) and that's pretty much it.
    You can send what you like.
    I will add....if you send brownies (ahem...I like them), cookies or any baked goods, to include candy, we won't include that in the price of the $20.

    Someone else asked about Canadians joining.

    If Canadians join can we be matched up to other Canucks to save on shipping? I do not mind paying to ship to the US, but I would hate for someone to be in for a shock at the Post office.

    I'm getting excited about this swap. I'll be one of the newbies on this swap - have been on others on the QB, but not this. Is there only a specific 'reveal' day or do you open your package when it arrives?

    Count me in too. I've never done an online swap. Any hints of what people sent last year? First timers (myself included) might need an idea of what to buy. Moderating this sounds like a huge task...thanks for doing this.

    Ok I was hoping to participate in this swap because I wanted to find SOMETHING to look forward to because to me Christmas was my mother and since she's gone, I really don't care about anything and I just wanted people to know that I do care if they mind smoke and I do understand....... But I'd like to back out and not be included, I would absolutely hate to offend anybody. Wendy

    I can do that, that's not a problem. One of the "spots" on the "form" will be if you are willing to ship outside of your country. Now, there will be those that ARE outside the US, that really won't have the choice but to ship to another country if there is no one near them.

    A Reveal Day will be decided amongst everyone. It will be a consensus/unanimous sort of vote.
