Secret Christmas Angel Swap

After having so much fun with the Halloween swap that I participated in on SCS I thought it might be neat to do something like that with my blog friends so here is how it works. All your questions about this swap will be answered if you read the information below. It is critical that you send me your e-mail and snail mail address. I can't contact you if I don't have your e-mail address!

Christmas Angel Swap

*Sign up for the swap by November 1st and by Nov 3rd you will have your assigned swap partner's name and address. Once you have that you will be able to look back at this post for their wish list. Please be sure when you comment on this post that you'd like to participate that I have some way to get a hold of you...in other words please leave your e-mail and snail mail address or e-mail me personally so that I have all your info!
*Comment on this post 5 stamping related things you'd really like to receive from your Christmas Angel. The minimum gift cost for this swap is $15 and you can spend up to $25.
*When you have your partner's name and such get started making, buying, or a combination of both the things your partner has said she would like.
*Mail your partner's box by Nov 21st and watch the fun as people receive the boxes and comment back here about what they got...it is a very rewarding experience. Remember if you are going to ship to Canada it takes longer for them to get their packages so maybe send it a little earlier so they can receive their goodies about the same time we do!

Here is the big thing...Please Do Not Sign Up For This Swap If You Have Any Inkling You Will Not Be Able To Follow Through. As a matter of fact maybe a couple of people would be willing to be back ups in case someone doesn't follow through.

So, who is first?

edited to add...

**I think Canadian swappers are just fine! If you are signing up for the swap but don't want to mail to Canada...please mention that in your post or your e-mail to me and I'll take that into advisement when I partner everyone up.**

Also, current day's post is below this one!!!

1. I REALLY want the Snow jumbo wheel from SU! It is in the Holiday mini good until Nov 30th.

2. Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding paper. Any or all of it.

3. DVD tins.

4. Pomegranate Satin Ribbon...see #1 for timing.

5. Wordsworth Stick Christmas Couple. I LOVE this set and would LOVE to own it!

I also absolutely, positively, love things with my name or initials on it. I don't often get to make things for myself so I love it when other people do for me. I love candy of just about any type. If Christmas candy I love the peppermint nougat stuff. Oh, and the Ghirardelli Peppermint bark...yum!

So, is that enough for ideas? LOL!
