This is a gift exchange that can be a shebang exchange as well. Music, gifts (SERIOUS REGIFTING ONLY) AKA ~~*White Elephant gift and/or music) bookmarks, cookbook, nice and or book related regifts only.

This is a shebang. You will submit one gift that you were happy to recieve but want very much to regift.

In exchange, you will recieve in one week either one, or seven small gifts. What you submit is not what you recieve back.

Repeat: What you give is not what you get back. mixed bag. Take it or leave it.

Instructions:

1. PM me for my address when you are ready.

2. Send the gift(s) and a (maybe 5x7-ish SASE envelope/box) please. And/or cash for return shipping, that works too.


Are you in?

1. Kate
2. Brift, with a big bold brother's book gift
3. Myles, with a gift from his sister
4 Sally, with possibly a cookbook.
5.
6.
7.
(lori might be in so if you're wavering hurry up or else your spot will be gone soon)

Ha!


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I requested that people save their money and not give me gifts this year and the only two who disobeyed were my mother-in-law who put 100 bucks in a card and my older son who gave me a Starbucks gift card.

Eff regifting. I'm keeping those gifts!

Ok, this is how this is going to happen:

IF you are participating mail your gift to me with a SAS large 9x11 ENVELOPE by this Friday.

DO NOT tell what you are mailing until Saturday at NOON.

Sunday evening I will repackage the gifts according to your PMed preferences for TITLED GIFTS that are posted on Saturday.

We can only post who received which present UPON RECIEPT, the following week or so.

Kosher dills? Ready. Set. Go.
