I was thinking people could post here if interested in participating in a "Secret Santa" gift swap for the holidays. In a day or so I will post a questionaire for everyone to fill out and email back to me. I will then assign mama's to other mamas( by method of a hat and name tags by an uninterested party{my DH}). I will give you till the middle of october to "sign up". You will then have the whole month of October and 1/2 of Nov. to make/find/or buy for your mama. Items should be new/ or handmade and = to $20-$25 BEFORE shipping. MAMAs may state used items are okay on the questionaire. Items will then be shipped the last week of November or the first week of December.<br><br><br>
THE ONLY CATCH IS YOU MUST PURCHASE DELIVERY CONFIRMATION ON YOUR PACKAGE AND YOU MUST EMAIL THAT # TO ME.<br><br><br>
SOUND GOOD?<br><br><br><br>
EMAIL THE QUESTIONAIRE TO ME BEFORE 11p.m. CST the 15th!!!! TO PARTICIPATE!!!!!!!

Maybe question about gifts just for mama or gifts that include the kids too? And I like the idea of cloth diaper questions too, if you're feeling brave enough to go there <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">. (ie. baby's size, preferences in AIO/cover/fitted, favorite colors, etc.)
