    October Secret Pal Sign-ups: Closes September 30 @ 11:59 PM. 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 Palís 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 October 19th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by October 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 September 30 to join the swap.

    Secret pal, in your state it is illegal to urinate in the water supply and an infraction may cost you up to 20 years in prison. Additionally, Snoring is prohibited unless all bedroom windows are closed and securely locked.

    Secret Pal, a city in your state is the home of the world's smallest church, with dimensions of only 51" by 81".

    Haha! Actually that is quite useful. Snoring can be loud. I can’t even imagine how it had to be made specifically illegal to urinate in the water supply.

    My SP hails from a state that is famous for growing a vegetable favorite. It also happens to be a border state to the state that has my favorite National Park.

    Cool

    Secret pal you will receive twice something in the mail, one directly from me and one from some where else. I looked high and low trying to find your most wanted, I was on a mission, but was not able to locate any but online. It will hopefully make for 2 fun surprises in the mail. There is a clue hidden in this message.

    My secret pal gift has take wings. It will take three days to arrive... so Monday or Tuesday. Secret pal, it would take 31 hours to drive to you for a total of 2,042.2 miles. I would pass through 5 states.

    I received a most generous package from Bullock2us. There was so much in it that I had to take 2 pictures! She sent all kinds of goodies, including a beautiful Laurel Burch pouch stuffed with useful items, a Halloween tote, lots of fabric and patterns, and a kitchen towel. Thank you so much!Name:  thumbnail_IMG_0379.jpg
