I'm going to try to answer some questions to make sure things are clear. =)
First, since I'm the organizer, I know who everyone got. If it turns out you can't get your person something, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! That way I can make sure this person gets something. I don't want anyone who signed up to not get something. You will have to give me their address so I can make it happen.
Who can see my address? Only the person who has drawn your name can see your mailing address. I have made it so that your mailing address is private.
How do I know what to get the person I was drawn? I encourage everyone to make a "wish list"!! If your person doesn't have a "wish list", you can ask them questions anonymously. Things like, favorite color, books, scents, coffee/teas... you get the point.
When is the exchange over? Everyone should receive their gifts no later than 8/17/2010. Since this is the first one we are doing I decided to give it about a month. I know summer time is used for vacations and then kids have school so you have obligations there too. I wanted to make sure there was enough time to get something together.
How much money should I spend? The limit is $25.00. That doesn't include your shipping costs.
**We did this last year with our group on myspace. Not as many women participated because the group was much smaller. I got some delicious coffee, bath and body stuff, candy. It was yummy. Loved it!!
