I don't understand what you are meaning. I am the owner/moderator of this swap. Not sure what you mean by being an every second year person since you only have 1 post on the board

Just because people pick things up all year long, DOES NOT mean that the person they are sending to are going to get what was purchased earlier.
Most things that are picked up during the year are threads, seam rippers, pins, needles, fat quarters, rulers, etc. Those things, in my opinion EVERYONE uses and can always use more.
Then, once the name is gotten, they will personalize the package to be sent.
Make sense??

Not trying to be negative, but if we are truly buying for the person assigned to us, shouldn't we be shopping specifically for that person? Don't get me wrong. I think this is a great things to do especially this year during COVID. Just my thoughts.

To those that have sent me info in the past few days to join, do not dispair....
I am traveling at the moment and don't have access to my SS information that I have at home.
I am using hubbys computer that I hate because I just do...

So, please don't think I forgot you or I am ignoring you...I'm still here and watching, reading, listening.

To me the main point of Secret Santa isn't in what I receive. It's the fun of participating in a group (I love the chat!), hitting the shops with someone's "likes" in mind and trying to fulfill them, stuffing the package as full of things as I can (including extras I've picked up through the year), anticipating Opening Day, and then sharing everybody's photos of their packages. That's the fun of it!

Blind exchanges aren't everyone's cup of tea. But for those who love this kind of thing, Secret Santa is a great group to join!

Can't wait !! Will send info today. I participated in SS in "16 and "17 , it was really alot of fun. ...We all need this. I think. The world went topsy turvy at the beginning of 2020...ha for me especially and probably lots of others in one way or another.. In Sept of 2019 I had a CSF leak and had to have major brain surgery. whilst still recovering I got sick in Jan and spent 10 days in ICU then the next almost 2 months in rehab hospitals learning to walk and function again.....I was so excited to get out and see my grandchildren, daughters ,family and friends....2 days home and the world shuts down...yeah my luck...haha..
Anyways finished lots of UFO's and sent them off the be quilted, After a whole year , started driving again, and today YEAH me...haven't smoked in 8 months!!!! So you bet I am looking forward to this , you all be Blessed and have a wonderful week.

I have been doing this swap for several years now and I can honestly say I have never been disappointed with the boxes I have received. This is truly my favorite swap.
