Maybe this is already being done on another thread - or has been done to death and i just don't know it....but since i love to collect recipes, i thought i'd see if there was interest.

That sounds like a great idea. We would make dozens of cookies every Christmas. Put them in a cardboard box with wax paper between the layers and put them in the closet till the holidays. I just got my Mom's recipe for the apple cookie cake we made every Christmas.

I'll have to crawl off to the corner with you. Everyone says they want people to post but the only one who will play with me is Neesie and she has to. I was her SS last year. This is my third or fourth SS but I still feel like an unknown newbie. Last year I told an outrageous story. This year I brought whine and my box is singing to me to open it but I am all but invisible. Don't know what I'm doing wrong but I think I'll go back to lurking.

You are welcome to come to the burg corner in the hole with us. We can lurk together. Bring your whine :-)

Sharon, MY LAST YEAR'S SECRET SANTA, I never feel obligated to play with anyone. Fact is, you're a nice person and I like ya! :)

Bring your whine to the corner and I'll provide the glasses. Goblets or flutes? Goblets hold more, so let's go with them.

Oh, a SECRET SANTA cookie exchange sounds like fun, even if only virtual. Great idea!

Blondslave and Neesie, I don't have anyone to play with either. Can we get a cellphone jammer for the hole so the boss can't find me??? I just spent an hour talking to her on my day off as she wanted to go over some things.

I was trying to go get my box off today but need a bigger box. But I got wrapping supplies, a Christmas item, and my fq's today. I can put more in the box as I hit the big sale at Jackman's today (any of you near stl, GO, it runs all weekend and they have a huge selection of $1 Fat Quarters! I bought 38 FQ's, an easy angle for Bonnie's Mystery, a magazine and 5 1/2 yd pieces and still kept it under 100 bucks! :)

So I will probably try and get something she collects made and send to her Saturday. She's going to be happy, as due to my bargain hunting and getting her 4 FQ's for only $4, I was able to get both of her most wanted items. But what are they? That she'll have to wait and see!
