    December Secret Pal Sign

    This is a monthly secret pal swap. There is a sign up every month, and you can
    choose whether or not to participate each month. You will get a different partner
    every month, and the person you send to will be different than the person you
    receive from. Failure to send you package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps

    You will need to send Me a Pm when mailing and receiving also your SP thanking them. This way I can keep my records straight.

    Packages need to be mailed out by December 15th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by December 10th Firm
    If you know that you cannot mail by that date, Please Do Not Sign Up.

    For international mailing it is very important that you mark your parcel as a 'Gift'. Usually on the Customs Declaration there's a box you can check. Also, the value should be $10 only (even if you send diamond necklace).
    The person receiving the package is liable for Import Duty, Tax and a Handling fee. This can cost the person receiving as much as $40.

    As an aside, padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. I'm not sure if that's true for every carrier or not.

    Our International board members are welcome to join the swap.
    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time then I will need tracking information. I know there will be exception on the mailing you will need to inform me.
    Remember there is a $10.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash.
    Just enjoy and have fun!

    All names are out. If you do not receive a name please let me know ASAP. Also I really want to stress that we like pictures everyone. If you can not take a pic and post one please make sure you put that into your SP INFO. We all like to see what everyone is getting I know I do anyway. So SP if you want to take a pic before you mail it that is fine too, Just don't post it until after your SP receives and posts online that she has.

    Thank you everyone who signed up this month.

    On another note just want everyone to know that I will not be around much this month. I will check in as much as possible though. I am having a total knee replacement on the 13th of Dec, since my birthday is the 11th I am telling everyone I am getting a new knee for my birthday. Also since I won't be able to travel after my surgery we are leaving here on the 8th to head north to our home state Indiana to have Christmas early with our kids and grandkids. Coming back home on the 11th just in time for surgery. But as I said please enjoy this month and post lots of pictures. Also do not forget to send PMs to me and your Sp when you receive and when you mail. I am going to say Merry Christmas to everyone now, since I don't know how I will be feeling after surgery, but from what I hear I won't feel up to being on the computer. I will be here as much as possible up to my surgery date after that I am not sure.

    Thank you
