    September Secret Pal Swap - Sign-ups close August 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 September 20th, this is a Firm deadline. All International mailings must be mailed by September 13th 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 August 31 to join the swap.

    Phone number:

    Sign Ups will close August 31 at 11:59 PM PST and names will be sent out no later than Sept 3nd. (Holiday weekend and I will be out of town)

    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!

    Well, my husband fell at work yesterday and broke three bones in his wrist. He is a federal protection officer and it is right hand. He will be home 6 to 8 weeks.

    On a positive note, I got new pictures of my eldest and his family. The picture of Hendrix is my favorite with his momma's old glasses frames on. He looks so much like his momma and Hyde looks like his dad as a child.Name:  69021591_10218201853292070_8311527188306329600_o.jpg

    All the secret pals are out. This is the first time I have not participated in 5 years. I just have so much on my plate and I thought I would take a break this month. I will live vicariously through you all!

    There are a lot of circles where my secret pal lives. I just ordered her most wanted and I will need to wait for it to come in the mail so I will run on the later side this month with shipping.

    I'm not going to be able to send until next week also. I had to do an online order for something special and it's not being delivered until Tuesday, so mine will go out wednesday. My SP lives 4580 nautical miles away from me. Can you guess where in the world it will be heading???? East? West? North? South? Time will tell!!

    Just a reminder, the names went out later than usual so mailings will be later than usual. Patience is appreciated!
