Anyone still interested in doing a summer exchange? If so, do you want to do it like we did last summer where we sent two packages, or would you prefer to send just one? Please let me know your thoughts.

For those that did not participate last year, here's how it worked.

You will mail two packages to your pal.
1. a small package sent by July 31st to include HINTS as to who you are
*** I will start a thread where we can try to guess the name of our secret pal.
2. a larger package sent by August 22nd to REVEAL who you are

*** Send or spend as much as you would like, but letís try to keep the price of the first package under $10 and the price of the second package under $15. The items sent DO NOT have to be Disney- or rewards-related. Use the information provided by your pal to help you plan your packages.

I plan on changing the dates, but if everyone wants to do two packages, then it will work the same as last year.

Shoppie- one or two packages?

2 sounds like fun to me. Just make sure you explain exactly what we are doing since I wasn't apart of it last year. Can't wait! I will probably get some neat things while I'm down there in June!:jumping1:

I am always an organizer, but rarely a participant. If it's OK with you ladies, may I play also? I love the little mystery around the sender!

I'm in too. I agree with everyone else. I like the two packages. Tons more fun trying to figure out who your secret pal is.

Michelle,

Jen will pm you a list of questions to answer and send back to her. She will then (or DH will) send you the Q & A of someone else. You then purchase gifts for that person with hints as to who you are. Mail by the date. You will then send another package of goodies by the second date. You will also receive goodies from someone.

It is a lot fun getting things for someone and makes the heat of the summer more bearable knowing you are going to be getting a few treat here and there.

I liked the two package exchange that we did last summer. I has no idea who my secret pal was after the first gift. It was alot of fun picking out the items for the package.

Count me in, Cindy::yes::

This sounds like fun! How do you give hints? Do you mean by what you include in the package, say, something referring to Pennsylvania because that's where I'm from? Or is that totally wrong?

Hello! I would love to participate! I'll go with whatever the majority decides. It sounds like fun. I would like some ideas about how it went last year. What kinds of things did you send to your pal? How did you do the return address thing?Couldn't we find out through the return address?

When I sent my packages I just shipped them priority and didn't put a return address.

Hope that is of some help.

I put a return address but changed my location name on the board.

Some things I bought my person was scrapbook supples for WDW and family stuff because that was what she was working on. Candles in her favorite scent. Candy. A pin of her favorite character. Once you get the questionaire back you should not have any trouble.

I must be getting old or something...if you are going to type out "rents" why not just add the two other letters?:confused:

Color me dumb, but I just don't get the "teenage" language nowadays...I am glad my teens don't talk like that, no offense to CourtasanSatine, I guess I am just getting older and hate to admit it! :p

Hmmm...I have been known to refer to my parents as "the 'rents," so what does that say about me?!?

Far from my teenage years here....

Beanie

Well, see Sue, that is why I said, "It must be me"!:p I have never heard of 'rents' before!! :)

Anyway, I hope you all are having a good day...I am posting from work (ssshhhhh!;) ) This could get addicting!! LOL

I was reading a book that was not intended for my age group and had to have my dd13's help desifering an instant mesaging term.

Needless to say I never did finish that book!
