I'm jumping in late here with some questions (that would probably be answered for me if I re-read the thread).
I don't think I can do both...so I think the gift exchange is what I'd participate in...my question, are we sending out our gifts before the baby arrives or after, Secret Santa was mentioned so I am assuming after.
The bead thing is cool too, might be neat to wear the braclet in labour. About how many are we looking at sending out though (I am thinking postage wise it might be easier on me to send one gift instead of 20 envelopes of .50 each KMIM?) Too bad I have to base my decision on money....
:LOL, just used the calculator to determine that 20x50 is still by far gonna be cheaper than the cost of a gift plus shipping...my poor preggo brain
Nonetheless, I'd still hope I can get an idea of how many beads I'd need.
