Hi every one.
Most of you have your secret sister information. If I have requested your address and you have not sent it to me yet, it needs to be done as soon as possible.

This is the page where you will post a thank you for anything you receive from your secret sister. Please acknowledge everything, so your sister knows you got it.

If you would like to ask your sister a question, you may email it to me and I will ask it on this page and the answer will also be posted here. Please check back often.

The post office does not require a return address, but just in case you need one you can use mine (email me and I will be happy to share it with you). If you want to avoid a location stamp from the post office you can use stamps on your package and it will be not only pretty but also a secret. (Thanks Sherry for the info on that).

Other ways to be sneaky, send something directly from Etsy. Send a card or package to a friend or family member and have them mail it for you from their town.

Have fun ladies and I look forward to hearing and seeing all the sweet cards and packages flying across the country.

I was asked to post the “rules” as a reminder to everyone as to what the expectations are of this swap.

1. You MUST send something (a small gift) to your partner at least once a month. I would encourage you to do something more often, even just a post card or thinking of you card would be great but that is up to you.

2. You MUST acknowledge everything you get from your secret sister. I really don’t have time to be sending multiple emails asking if you received something.

3. If at the end of this month, someone has not received a package, I will be assigning an angel to that person and removing their partner from this swap. I realize life happens after we sometimes sign up for swaps, but I do not want anyone to be left out.

Please watch this space for updates.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

Here is our first couple of get to know you questions.

Momof4-your partner would like to know if you participate in Halloween and when is your birthday?

Magdalena-your partner would also like to know if you participate in Halloween, when is your birthday, what is your favorite color and what is your favorite treat?

I love these get to know you questions.
If you do not feel comfortable answering these questions on the forum you can email them to me and I will pass them on.

Wowzers!!! My secret sister is amazingly fast!!! I received a package today already!!!


I apologize the pictures a bit dark. Even though they're wrapped in plastic and inside a plastic shipping bag I could smell the lavender in the mailbox! These little lavender filled bags smell heavenly. I'm going to put one in my bedroom and one in the closet. I'm not sure if the third one will end up staying in the livingroom or the coat closet. Thank you so much secret sister!! What a great way to start off the fun :)

She must have an inside connection with the post office because I received another one today!!!!
There's a card with a sweet note:

And on the other side of the note was a love pop. I've never heard of them before. It's a 3-D sticker that opens into a bouquet of flowers:


Thank you so much secret sister!!! I actually have 2 sisters and I have to tell you - for not having a sister you're doing a fabulous job of spoiling me :) They don't spoil me like this at all LOL!!

I want to thank my secret sister for the beautiful scarf she sent as well as the book. It is getting chilly here and I may be using the scarf before too long. Can't wait to settle in with tea and this book. She sent a very sweet card that has me wondering who she could be!

Ruth your secret sister would like to know if you knit, crochet or do another type of craft? Do you prefer traditional or religious Christmas gifs. Do you have pets.

Well I forgot to subscribe to this but I had fun reading the posts and looking at the pictures.

I want to thank my secret sister for the package I received yesterday. I'm really like the wool kit and will be starting on it soon. The door hanger is perfect!
Thank you for asking about my health. My test was negative so that's the good news. I was so low on energy I just couldn't do much without resting. Every time I felt better I tried to get something done. I had to rest after putting a load of laundry in the washing machine. This lasted for a week. I'm doing much better now. Back to being ready for bed at 7pm lol

Thank you secret sister!! I received 2 pumpkins, some beautiful fall napkins, 2 tea bags, and a cute little note. What a wonderful fall package. I greatly appreciate it. I'm looking forward to trying the Harney & Sons tea in the morning (it's a black tea with currants, caramel, and citrus). I've never tried a blend like that before. And it will be very nice to sit my cup down on a beautiful napkin :)

Thank you again!!!
