    Default 2012 HM Valentine's Day Gift Exchange

    Anyone ready for this yet?

    Thinking about something similar to the Christmas gift exchange, but with two twists: 1) Valentine's Day related vs Christmas related, and 2) a one-to-one exchange. So rather than making 32 of each thing, you'll be given your "Secret Cupid" name, and will make an item for that one person and mail it. You won't know who your Cupid is until you get your gift.

    If you are up for it, PM a mailing address and email to me by January 14th, and I'll send you your gift recipient by the 15th.

    Hey, *I* celebrated on Christmas Eve, so I was already "jonesing" for my next gift exchange.

    I might be up for it.........let me see how things go here for the next week or so........I WANT to do it but if I get busy
    with LEGAL CRAP...........think it best that I take care of that first!!

    So....count me as a "maybe".............

    (how is that for making a real commitment??)

    I can handle this 'one gift' thing............

    I thought I would give you all the option to send cards, if you'd like. But the gift would be one-to-one, just to keep supply and shipping costs down.

    I might be interested. What kind of gifts were you expecting?
    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Nothing big - similar to the Christmas ornament exchange. Just a little token of appreciation and affection. This IS Frugal Village, after all.
