I have gotten a couple of questions about assigning numbers and names of people in groups...
Ok... The numbers thing... We will be opening gifts (should you choose to participate instead of tearing into your gifts the second that they arrive) starting Dec. 14th which would equal 12 Days of Christmas and our last gift would be opened Christmas Day... In the swap that inspired this one, the hostess did assign numbers... I was thinking that it would be easier to NOT assign a number because if someone had to drop out of the swap at the last minute, there would be a day (maybe in the middle, maybe at the end) where there would be no gift to open. If we do not assign numbers, I can make adjustments once gifts arrive to me and then I would attach number tags so that you would have a gift opening track to follow... Does that make sense? If you really, really wanted a number we can talk but I thought it might be easier on you all this way. I don't mean to be pessimistic talking about people dropping out (and I do have a wait list to fill in if need be) but I like to expect the best and plan for the not so best. Seriously, contact me if you would really enjoy being assigned a number.
Names of folks in your group... Numbers aside, if you wanted to do something personal for people in your group and write out a gift tag for them (this could be a creative solution the number assignments) below I have provided the first names of people in all the groups. It is true that you will see my name in each of the groups. I SWEAR that I am not gift greedy!! My motive to be in all the groups was purely for documenting purposes so that I would be able to photograph and post all the gifts that were exchanged... OK... And I like gifts! But that's just a happy by-product of hosting the swap... Also please remember that that means I have to make 33 gifts!! It will be hard work but some how I will get through. ;)
Please do contact me if there's anything else I can do to help you all out.
Best Wishes, Holly :)
