Secret Santa for Christmas 2010!

Marlene KindredOctober 14, 2010

Hello all~

I've been seeing a few posts about a Secret Santa exchange for this Christmas and for those of you who are new, it is a BLAST! Always a ton of fun and lots of great junk arrives at your doorstep. So....I'm going to step out here and volunteer to be the SS exchange coordinator! Kirk and Smickerdoodle have graciously done it in years past, so I may have to pick their brains a little to make this flow smoothly, but if you are interested in participating please send me an email telling me so and giving me your home address. I will compile a list until November 5th! Then I will send you the person you will be sending a gift to. Please also send me a short list of things you like. (For example, I love dragonflies, things for totems, rusty things, flowers, birds, etc.) That helps the person shopping for you.

So.....everyone who is interested....get those emails coming! I'm excited....who's with me??

Count me in. Last year was my first year and it was great! Thanks for doing it this year Marlene. I think I need a refresher course though.

Thanks Marlene,

I am really looking forward to this. Hopefully I'm all signed up. I have a double garage full of garden junk that I would love to share. I paid less than $1.49 for most of my goodies. Thanks for coordinating.

Beautiful fall regards from Minnesota

Just bumping this up again and adding a note...if I have not responded to you about wanting to sign up for the Secret Santa exchange, then I didn't get your email. I have gotten several, so I'm not sure what the problem is other than a linking problem from Garden web. My two emails are:

mkindred@umw.edu
kindreds3@gmail.com

marlene...I've noticed that sometimes e-mail accidentally ends up in my "spam" box & those often get overlooked. Great that you are doing this...I'm sitting this yr out....but look forward to following & enjoying others' posts! Jeanne S.

Well, I knew I probably would not be able to resist AFTER posting above that I would sit out this yr...SS's is too much fun! So, since the deadline is not up yet, I've changed my mind! (nope, won't change it back!) Please count me in, Marlene...sent an email. Thanks for doing this! Jeanne S.

Love anything "rustic" ... especially using old wood, metal, pottery...love feeding the birds (my DH takes care of that)...we make birdhouses, feeders, & lots of stuff out of recycled barn wood.

Count me in too. This will be my first year, and it sounds like so much fun. I love birdhouses, flowers, butterflys, bees, squirrels, just about anything for the garden. I have sent you my e-mail address, hope you get it. Thanks for taking on this job. I love this forum. I have lots of goodies I can share.

I would love to play. This would be my first time, please count me in. I am usually over in the Clematis forum, Tenn Gardening Forum, and or ponding forum, and or the Junk Forum or the Farming Forum, well i'm everywhere i guess. Some of the things I love are, well I have dairy goats and have had them for over 16 years, So I love anything related to goats, I have a koi garden pond so I love any thing related to my ponding hobbie, I have 23 plus clematis and I love any and all things related to gardening, birds,etc. I also feed hummingbirds and have for many years. I got in to the totem things several years ago and think I bought out several local GW fashion stores and TS and now not so much into sitting around make totems so I have packed up all the glass wear in rubber containers just waiting for someone eles to use. Can't wait to get my bubbies name and address. Sandy
