Curly Holiday Swap 2012 Edition!
 
This is the lucky 13th year of the Curly Holiday Swap in honour of Christmas, Yule, Kwanza, and Hanukah.

If you sign up and have an emergency that will prevent you from participating, let me know ASAP and I will try to find a replacement for you. I don't want anyone to end up as a grinch (or be grinched).

The Rules

1 – To participate, you must have been a member for at least 6 months. NO exceptions! Join date must be before May 2012.

2 – Gift price limit is $25.

3Delivery confirmation required unless specified! This is important, and it's as much for the benefit of the gift sender as the giftee. Please send your tracking number to me when you send your gift.

4 – Gifts must be sent in time for everyone to have their gifts by December 25th.

5Don't forget to reveal your NC name when you send your gift. This is important; people come here and don't know who to thank! :lol:

6 – We have previously determined that this is best reserved for members in Canada and the US only because of the problems with international mail at this time of year.

If you want to participate, please e-mail your:
* NC.com username
* Real name
* E-mail address
* Real address (where you want the package sent - home or work)
* Let me know if you are okay shipping across the border

You can send me a PM here, but I would prefer that you send your participation request to

rouquinne@rogers.com

The end date for signing up will be Wednesday, November 21st, the day before American Thanksgiving
. Because I will make matches the next day, I won't be able to accept latecomers.

I will send out matches by November 23rd at the latest.

If you fail to keep up your end of this deal,names of offenders will be posted the day after Orthodox Christmas - January 8, 2013.

Please keep this in mind when signing up.

(Moderators, please sticky this thread until November 21st, thank you.)

Email sent :)

Oh, wait.

NVM :(

rouquinne 10-28-2012 05:36 PM

kayb, if you think you can get something to the US or Canada by the 2nd week of January, i don't see a problem.

:)

redcelticcurls 10-28-2012 05:38 PM

Oh, snap. I thought it was my turn.

kayb 10-28-2012 05:39 PM

I think Gretchen got her stuff in time last year (I think), but I would have to have someone who is willing to ship "international" before I can give a true "yes/no."

redcelticcurls 10-28-2012 05:40 PM

Could we make the deadline November 15th? It would give international shippers more time.

rouquinne 10-28-2012 05:43 PM

my mom's surgery is this week and i'll be away looking after her until November 12th with intermittent net access.

how about the 21st - the day before your Thanksgiving? it's an extra 9 days.

YAY!!!!! Will there be a thread about interests/wishes like a bazillion years ago??? I need clues, hints and guidance :D

rouquinne 10-28-2012 06:44 PM

of course there will be! stalking your curlfriend is the second best part of the process!

the best is hearing about everyone's loot!

:D

I did get my beautiful gifts in time last year, Kay! I was just admiring the candle agin the other day, in fact. We've burned the wax away, but it's such an interesting reminder of a place far away....and of our wonderful community here!

Ha, I've been waiting for it, too! :D It's one of my favorite things. I love buying presents!

jeepcurlygurl 10-30-2012 12:35 PM

Yay! Been waiting for this.
I am willing to ship anywhere if there is someone outside the US or Canada who wants to participate. I get things done early and they will get their gifts before Xmas barring an extreme problem.

thelio 10-31-2012 06:40 AM

YAY!! email sent!

rouquinne 11-01-2012 05:28 AM
