Secret Sister Box Swap............

Hello Friends!

Well, it seems the Secret Sister Box swap is a smashing success!!!!!!

I cannot tell you how thrilled I am, to see such great participation... 27 girls the first round, all of the great video' and streams as we get to open each one, and most importantly, all of the great friendships that have grown closer.

I could not have wished for a better outcome. Thanks for all of the participation, and the interest to keep it going! Because of the great response, and all the girls who missed out in Round 1, I have decided to have a round 2......

So Round 1 girls.... you still have 3 days to get your box mailed. If Life has intervened, please, please, just e-mail me! I got your back!!!!! ldeviney@comcast.net
If you need an extra day, to make payday, that is fine. Just please e-mail me and let me know!

Also-- if you do not get a box... I need to know that too. Give it until 3/25/12, and shoot me an e-mail, and I will check up on your status.

I think we will keep the same rules for round 2... quick sign up and fast turn around, it seemed to work for everyone. So, if you want to be a part of round 2... here is what you do..... leave a comment on this post by 3/31/12, and e-mail me your mailing details to ldeviney@comcast.net Title the e-mail Round 2 Box Swap, and make your e-mail so I can forward it to your secret sister. I wind up with your address, and so will your secret sister. If sharing your address is a problem, unfortunately you cannot swap. Please include your YouTube, Twitter, and Blog addresses in the e-mail. I will close round 2 sign ups on 3/31/12 and your box must be posted by 4/15/12. 2 weeks to complete it! International girls are encouraged to participate, but keep in mind.... the post takes a long time, and it is more expensive. I randomly select the secret sisters, so if you cannot afford to have an international sister, I am sorry you cannot swap... catch us next round.

Hopefully that is not too many rules, and I encourage you all to get in on the fun! The reactions and the art work has been Fabulous!!! Decorate a box approximately 4 inches wide x 8 inches long in a manner your sister would love, and fill the box with handmade craft, or items from your stash. We prefer hand made, but if you have to shop, I will not tell you no!

Any questions? e-mail me!

Hugs,

  36. Hi Laurel and gang. My SS box went out yesterday 4-16-12.
    I received my SSBox today via UPS. I'm so excited and will stream thee opening this evening when more of the gang is around.
    I did some investigating and think I know who it's from...the lable has Secret Sister...no name , BUT the addy where it came from was my clue and I tracked the location down and then came here and checked all our gals blogs...I think it's from Suzanne (first gal that signed up)and if it is, I'm in for some wonderful treats...she has an amazing talent. okay P&L
