    Dirty Santa is a game we play at Christmas at the sewing guild. Everyone who wants to participate at the meeting brings a $5 wrapped gift. As you enter, you are given a number. #1 gets to pick the first gift. #2 gets to either take #1's gift or pick another from the stack. Then #3 gets to either take #1's or #2's gift or pick another from the stack -- thus the "dirty" part. And on through all the numbers. The luckiest person in this game is picked LAST as you can get whatever you want from all the gifts. You never know if you get to keep what you really want or not..... :wink: :evil: :evil: :twisted: :twisted:

    Great purse. If I got it, I think I'd have to sit on it so no one else could see it very well. :lol: I do love those gift swappies! I always lose what I wanted to keep though, but its fun! :wink:

    Your "Joyce Original" is very pretty. I'm sure it will be a big hit at the gift exchange.
