    *This is an exchange thread for members (past and present) of the Girls Only Disneyland trips.*

    Hi ladies!

    [​IMG]

    Ready for our next exchange?
    This will be the third out of five exchanges; first was summer, second was favorite character, after this will be Christmas stocking, and finally the exchange during the Meet and Greet the first night of our trip.

    Some of you are already familiar with the exchanges. If you are NOT, please take a moment to scan the information below as it should help answer any questions you may have.

    First, it's entirely voluntary. Just a fun thing for those interested. For each exchange there is a minimum $$$ amount that you must spend, which does NOT include shipping or any "extras" or freebies.

    Once sign ups are complete each lady who signed up will receive the name of a person to exchange with. You will not be sending to the same person you receive from. Then the fun begins!
    Simply go shopping for items to send that fall within each particular theme, mail it out by the mail by date, and then wait for your package to arrive. This is not anonymous, so include your name and DIS name on the package.

    Each exchange takes approximately a month or so to complete from start (sign ups) to finish (all packages accounted for). Make sure you won't be on vacation during the shipping and receiving times. Remember to post on the thread when you ship your package out. Also post when you receive your package, and what goodies you get.



    If you are interested in joining this exchange, please PM me with the following info:*****Sorry, sign ups are now CLOSED!!! Thanks to all who signed up.***** :)

    Sounds good. :thumbsup2


    I'm going to head out to Walmart, Target and Walgreens tonight. I have other reasons for going there, but while I'm there I cannot wait to see what Halloween items they have out already.

    Might not be too much just yet, we'll see. I do know that once Labor Day passes, ALL the back to school stuff is cleared out and the aisles are full of Halloween goodies! :yay:

    When someone (person A) signs up for the exchange and for whatever reason is unable to send to their person (person B), then an elf steps in and sends a package to the person (person B) that the other person (person A) wasn't able to send to.

    Hope that helps, looks more like a math problem then a explanation! :teacher:

    Janelle,
    Wendy explained it perfectly.

    Typically an elf might be needed on the exchanges I used to host on the Community Board. Since it was basically strangers doing those exchanges (except for the few regulars) we'd occasionally have someone sign up, get their package but never send one. :sad2:

    When that would happen, to avoid anyone missing out, we'd call on our elves to step in and send a package out. But with our great group of Divas, it hasn't happened so far and I doubt it will. :)

    Alright..so i signed up me, my mom, the twinikins and my sweet granddaughter.

    I hope to get all my shopping done this weekend!
    I don't know why but I am so excitted about this exchange.. maybe because i sat out the last exchange and if not for Miss Katie, I would have really missed out on the fun.
    Or maybe because it kicks off Fall..which is my favorite season.. gorgeous colored leaves.. grateful hearts..the warm smell of pumpkin and spices...and you get to play dress up! Wow, BaBeY.. how can Fall not be Da BoMb!:lovestruc

    :yay:The TriCk or TreaT ExChaNge RoCkS:yay:

    How cool!! I wish my birthday was on Halloween. :thumbsup2



    I 100% agree with you on this! :cool1:



    Courtney, what about signing up your mom? She's going to be a Diva after all right? ;) You can always request that she receive more Fall themed items rather than Halloween themed if you'd like. That's easy enough to do. Maybe sign her up and not tell her. Make it a nice surprise. :goodvibes Anyway, just saying, she's more than welcome, just send me a PM if you're interested.



    ME TOO!!! ME TOO!!! ME TOO!!!! :hyper: :hyper:
    I'm so glad so many of the Divas love Halloween. Most people think I am nuts. They all prefer Christmas.
    Don't get me wrong, I like Christmas too. It's just more pressure with idyllic images of the perfect holiday which rarely happens, pressure to visit with family you may not get along with, and pressure to spend, spend, spend on the perfect gifts for everyone including people you rarely see!!
    I know it shouldn't be about that, but often times it is, if you're not careful. Halloween on the other hand is just good spooky fun, with candy and costumes. No pressure. Gotta love it. ;)

    We are up to 16 so far!! :banana: I should send a PM to Sarah and her mom. I know her mom was really interested in this at one point.

    And don't hesitate to sign up your kids! Or grandkids or whatever. A few have asked me if they can just sign up their kids without sending one themselves, and yes, that's fine too. ::yes::

    So come on, don't be scared!
