    January Secret Pal Swap-Signups close Dec. 31 at midnight. Come join the fun!

    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 each month, and the person you send to will may be different than the person you receive from. Failure to send your package after signing up will be cause to be banned from all future swaps. Please do not sign up if you cannot fulfill your obligation. Have fun and be creative!

    After receiving your Secret Pal’s details, go to work and put together a package with something you think your pal would like. There is a $15.00 limit on this swap that does not include what you have in your stash. (This does not include shipping) Most swappers do not mind like-new stash items. You will need to send me (HAV4Boys) a PM when mailing and receiving. This way I can keep my records straight. Also send a PM to your SP thanking them and leave feedback.

    Please take pictures and post in group as everyone likes to see what you get.

    Packages need to be mailed out by January 19th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by January 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' 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.

    Padded envelopes are much cheaper to send compared to small boxes. These can be ordered free of charge from the USPS website.

    You must have a phone # or email to sign up

    Please fill out the questionnaire below and Private Message me your info by midnight December 31 to join the swap.

    Email address:
    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close December 31 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than January 2nd.

    If your pal does not receive her/his package within a reasonable time I will need tracking information. If there is an exception on the mailing, you will need to inform me ASAP. No one enjoys not getting a package after they have sent one.

    Have fun and be creative!

    Congratulations on your up coming grandson. Are you making any quilts for him? I have a grandson due end January and have the pieces cut but still need to make the quilt.

    Just want to let everyone know I will be on vacation from January 4 through the 11th and will not be online. I am headed to Hawaii and plan to leave the phone in the resort.

    Here's to a great 2019!

    My secret pal has been a member here longer than me, or even me to the power of 3... (ok, not really, because that ends up being something like 18 years. But she has been a member longer than me squared.....almost!)

    Not much chatter this month. Must be everyone is still recovering from the holidays. I know I am! I ordered something for my secret pal and when it comes, I can mail her package out. Sure hope she likes it!

    I am also waiting for something I ordered before I mail the package I was told that it might take longer than normal to deliver. If not here in time then my partner will get two packages. Her combined total zip comes to a single diget of 5.
    In my partner's home state:
    Slipper's are not to be worn after 10:00 p.m.
    It is against the law to throw a ball at someone's head for fun.
    In one city it is illegal to shake a dust mop out of a window.
