Secret Santa 2011 - sign up here! :)

Postby Louise » Tue Oct 25, 2011 10:35 am

If you would like to take part in this swap please read the following guidelines carefully and follow the instructions. Please only reply to this thread to sign up, any comments or questions should be posted in a new thread. Thanks ladies

*You must be a regular poster - meaning that you have been posting frequently on the forum for the last 3 months and have a minimum of 250 posts excluding classifieds and 3 months membership as of Saturday 22 October. Moderators decision will be FINAL as to whether you can join in or not. If you are unsure as to whether you will be able to join in then please PM a Mod before signing up.

*The budget is £25 including RECORDED postage within the UK (for overseas participants standard air mail is adequate as international signed for can be prohibitively expensive)

*Please note this is NOT a craft swap so you should purchase your gift rather than make it. Please also make sure that your gift fits in with your recipients preferences.

*You MUST PM a Moderator once your item has been posted with the Royal Mail recorded delivery reference number (unless sending your item abroad in which case just let a Moderator know it is on its way)

*By signing up you commit to having the time to come and answer ALL the questions asked by other participants and to participate fully in the reveal and guessing threads.

*You have until Saturday 29 October at 10pm to sign up.

*You will receive the name and address of your Secret Santa recipient as soon as possible after this date.

All packages should be clearly marked with "CNT Secret Santa" (**if coming directly from the WAHM then please ensure they comply with this rule**) and posted by recorded delivery (or standard air mail for overseas recipients) by Saturday 10th December (or Saturday 3 December for overseas recipients) to arrive no later than Monday 12th December. Please PM a Moderator with the reference number when you have posted your parcel. **THE GRAND REVEAL WILL BE ON FRIDAY 16TH DECEMBER.**


*REMEMBER - NO PEEKING AT PACKAGES BEFORE THE GRAND REVEAL!!


*Failure to comply with all of these rules will mean you are unable to take part in the next set of 3 swaps (i.e the next Secret Baker, Nappy Secret Santa AND DIY Secret Santa) . After this time you will be able to participate in future swaps providing you follow the guidelines.

*Please note if you failed to comply with the rules for the last swap(s) you took part in (particularly failure to post your package on time and not taking part in the revealing/guessing without a valid reason) then you will be unable to join in with this swap.**

*If you would like to take part please sign up by adding your username, name and likes/dislikes by copying and pasting the questions below and responding to them. Please also ensure that you PM a moderator with your address as soon as you have signed up.

**Please note if you fail to provide satisfactory answers to the questions below or provide your address details by the closing date you will not be able to join in with the swap.** Reminders will be posted on the forum but we will not be contacting individuals privately for their information.

* Once the sign up thread has closed there will be a thread open where you will have the ability to post any questions you need answers to. Please keep your questions to that thread only rather than starting a new one for each question. Thank you ladies and have fun shopping!*

Who the gift is to be for (child's name,age, build)
Theo, long and slender, age in Dec 22.5 months
Type of gift preferred (nappy/wool/fleece/WAHM clothing)
Please NO nappies. WAHM clothing/wool interlock preferred
Nappy/clothing size
See measurements below. He needs 3T in jamie jumper rompers and other similar items.
Measurements for bottoms (wool/fleece/clothing - waist/hips/rise/inseam/length of skirt if applicable)
Inseam 12" Rise-20" Hip 23" (these are over night nappies, we do not need daytime trousers)
Measurements for tops/dresses (chest, length of top/dress, sleeve length)
Chest-24" Length- 16" sleeve from top of shoulder to wrist 13"
Favourite colours/ones to avoid
Anything bold. Would prefer not to have much more blue&green if possible. We like different.
Favourite themes/things to avoid
Not all that fussy! No christmas/holiday themed items though please.
Embroidery yes/no/(examples if possible, personalisation ok?)
Love embroidery. No names but everything else ok.
Favourite fabric prints/designers
Dino Dudes, Ooga, Monster Mash, Groovy Guitars, Superheros (lots more but think you get the idea!) We dont own any Dr Seuss yet but would like too. Boyish horse stuff is always a BIG hit.
Anything else your fairy might need to know?
We only use long sleeved tops apart from sleeveless vests.
We are short on fleecey rompers but already have half a dozen knit ones.
Wool interlock soakers would be very welcome but would need to be larger in the rise (~21") to fit over his night nappies with the lesser stretch.
Theo is funny about tops at the moment, he likes the sleeves on his T shirts cuffed in ribbing so they dont slide over his hands.
Measurements above are generous with growing room factored in already!

We like wahm hoodies, long sleeved and short sleeved hooded tops for daytime.
