    Secret Pal Sign-up for December (Sing-ups close Nov. 30 at midnight)

    Please fill out a new form for this month.
    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 December 17th, 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' 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 November 30 to join the swap. Please do not use a prior month’s form as I have made changed to the form.

    Tell your SP something about yourself to make it easier for them to purchase for you.(Please fill this section out, it helps your SP buy for you.)

    Can you mail international?
    Email address:
    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close November 30 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than December 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!

    Here is what I have been busy with. My work does Gifts from the Heart and I picked a 80 year old man who wanted a quilt. Found great lure backing.

    Lovely fisherman's quilt. I used to be active every month on this swap and have amassed two boxes of swappable items. So I went through them today and pulled out several items that I will add to once I receive the name. Here's a sneak peek at part of the box someone will be getting:

    I got my name. My pal lives in a state that I visited last year, far to the west of me, and her most wanted item comes in a variety of colors - how's THAT for a vague clue

    I received my name -- it will be a lot of fun putting a package together for her. She likes many of the same things I do except her candy flavour -- that is my least favourite! But I'll probably bite the bullet and get her some. Joann's has a 60% off coupon, so shopping I go.
