default HML Secret Crafty Santa

Post by Adrian on 15th November 2010, 10:16 pm

So

This is the idea

Those interested craft a single simple item tailored to the individual whose name they receive.

The result, each person taking part in the Secret Crafty Santa is the proud owner of a lovely new anonymous craft item...

Anyone interested in taking part send me a PM entitled "crafty santa" with your name and address, when we reach the registration closing date (lets call it a week today) I will randomly assign a name to each and Bob is your mothers brother ... On the honour system, so I expect that names and addresses, once passed on with be respected. Naturally I am out of this as I will be allocating names...

Post xmas/yule, you can all post a piccy of you lovely new thingy...

Locking this topic so no-one accidentally gives away their interest....

Thankyou for my wooden worry egg and stand! It's gorgeous! I'm sure it will get a lot of use what with exams this year and next! It came this morning. Will put a piccie on when I can figure out how to!
