Okay, I'm posting this because I was waiting to see if anyone else would, but since nobody has, I'll offer myself up to the dirty task. Is anyone interested in doing a Secret Santa gift exchange again this year? We've done it on MM in years past to somewhat of a successful completion. I'm in if anyone else is, though I may need some help keeping things organized. Let me know!

I will keep this *open entry* until December 15th, so that everyone has a chance to see the thread, and then I guess I'll match up everyone that wants to participate. Volunteers to help with that are also welcome!

edit:
should this be moved to OT vanilla for more eyes to see? What do you guys think?

edit #2 (i foresee many):
Put some likes/dislikes/fantasy wish/realistic/etc info in this thread, so that when someone is matched up, they can check back here and get something you might like instead of, you know, socks, or something. tongue Also, please PM me with what you have to give, if you already have (I know last year some photo equipment was handed out) it, and if you don't have anything yet, what you price range will be to spend once you are matched. Also, I will need your mailing address!!! Keep in mind that I will do my best to match you with a Secret Santa in your same price range.

edit 3:
Seriously, PM with that info! Only two people have so far. Get er done, yo.

edit 4:
Don't want anything, but want to get in the Christmas spirit anyway and help a needy family out? (or if you want to do the sf2 secret santa AND do some good, feel free to participate in both!!) Please check out Nemi's Super Santa thread here: http://www.modelmayhem.com/po.php?thread_id=870889   Please do note that the two events are not innately related, and you must message the respective handlers of each event to ensure everyone is in the right place smile

edit:
whoever gets matched with yours truly, I like owls, shoes, cameras, and my one-day-maybe-when-i'm-rich list is here: http://www.wishpot.com/list.aspx?list=5 … w1NDg2Mjc7

Can Leggy and I count as one person on the Secret Santa list?

Edit: I've sent you our information and such. Nothing perishable, please. We like watching old movies, cooking (me) and eating (him), reading, and generally being awesome.

I don't see why not-- I would say, though, that couples would then count as one completely, unless the person being their secret santa wanted to give two seperate gifts instead of one but that would be their choice-- ie, expect to get a 'to the both of you' gift instead of 2 seperate presents. Make sense?

Unless someone specifically requests someone else, I'll refrain for setting a pricepoint for now because I know some people just can't afford much-- instead, I will try to pair people up by their own pricepoint, ie, let me know what you are going to spend (or already have that's worth x amount, or if you have something handmade), and I'll do my best to pair you with someone at a similar price range.

Also, if any has a better way of handling this, let me know, this is all by the seat of my pants smile

how about we just set an amt that we can spend. 20-30 bucks? and if somebody wants to spend more, they can.

but really, i havent gotten a gift from anybody in years. anything that comes thru the mail will be totally cool. I never get gifts but I like giving to others.


.........

I like chocolate, candy, most editable things. Techy and computer related Things. Size med if you want to get me a shirt. That's all I can think of now

EDIT: i like things i can use. i like to drink so beer/alcohol related things would be nice.  hope that helps.

Yeah I don't think anyone here would mind if there isn't a price range.. I'm going to spend money, but if I got something handmade it'd be awesome(-:

Count me in(:

And there's a thread for the MU&S secret Santa with a questionnaire you could copy or go off of. I did that one, I think I did alright(:

Edit- maybe you could add a price point to the questionnaire thing.

I can personally guarantee that you'll get something, because I promise that if whoever you get matched with falls through/flakes, I have the darlingest homemade owl ornaments waiting to be gifted.

We all know Becks, that this thread is like a casting call.  Instead of replying with "Interested", it is noted with "I'm in" lol

Okay people, IF YOU DO NOT PM ME then you'll be SOL at this point, this CLOSES tonight at midnight, as I have to get people (who followed directions, grumble grumble) sorted and matched in time for Christmas.

That means that if you say "I'm in!" and never came back to edit your post or message me your address, you are NOT going to be included in the sorting. All interested parties MUST message me by midnight TONIGHT.

You're good. As of yet I have not finished matching people, so for the next however long I take to do this tonight, SS is still open, and all who wish to may have an emergency pardon to be a last second participant.
