First Annual

Okay, I have to say that the Secret Santa Can Suck It! Gift Swap was a lot of fun. I will admit that it was hard work since I had to come up with a way nobody would get each other and then remind people gently with kind words and feathers not to forget or back out from being
someone's Secret Santa since I hate seeing grown men cry. But I think I have the hang of it now. I have a perfect little system which I will share with you guys next week.

To put it in Siren's words, "This has been so fun and being a new blogger it was neat to get out and troll some other blogs, I might not have been brave enough to visit on my own." I loved that she said that! I liked how a lot of you did point out that you had never before been over to your victim's site and there you were, checking their archives for ideas. I never saw that one coming so that was an additional perk, I think.

I have gotten a couple of people asking if it was too late to be included so I decided to do a round two for those that didn't get a chance to participate. If you know somebody who wants to do it send them on over. The more the merrier but if we have only a few, I think it'll still be fun.

I have 4 definites so far, let me know if you want to join in on the fun by 12/14/08 at beesmusings[at] with a big fat YES and the link to your site. Or you can leave a comment too but then I'll still need your email address because I can't hunt people down to get it from their blogs this time. That was a little time consuming.

I want to thank everybody who participated because you guys were all hilarious!! To the newbies wanting to join, check out these Secret Santa Links.

Okay, now I'm off to clean my family and host my big house for dinner… I mean clean my house and host a big family dinner.


  1. was a lot of fun. I could have had better timing, yeah... I'll blame my lack of imagination on being ILL.

    ha ha

  2. The exchange was fabulous!! Thanks so much for hosting it and doing all the behind the scenes work. Youse rock! =^..^=

  3. Bee, thanks again for organizing this. It was great to get out and find some fantastic, new blogs and reconnect with a few other.

  4. Coming over from Georgie's house...I wanna play!!!

  5. I had a great time doing it! I got to give gifts that I never would have been able to in real life!

  6. Well except for Jean Knee.
    She really wants that "chick a deer". I might have to get if for her. The only problem is, she won't tell me when her birthday is.

  7. So SSCSI1 participants can join SSCSI2? :D

  8. Oh and I forgot to thank you for the fab idea, so thanks. :)

  9. I do believe I read every one of them and had a blast doing it.

    It's interesting to me how you have to prod, shove, and remind people to do something that is so much fun!

    Looking forward to reading the second round.

  10. woohoooooo!!! it was so much fun. i'm def in and i'll send you some fresh meat for the second time around!

Ask me no questions and I’ll tell you no lies.
