Welcome to the 2nd Annual Twitter Gift Swap.

If you are new to the swap, please take a moment to read the guidelines below. Hell, even if you aren't new READ IT anyway. ;)

HOW? Sign up between now and November 30th. Swap-bot will anonymously assign you ONE partner after the deadline. Then all you need to do is send a fun gag gift by December 19th.

RULES. (Yes we do need them.) Spending cap of $25. Make it fun. Keep it simple. Don't sign up if you don't plan to participate or are not willing to send to whomever you may get. Part of the fun is accepting the challenge of possibly getting partnered with a new Twitter friend. So... no Scrooge's allowed! :-P

IMPORTANT! Be sure to include your Twitter user name AND a valid mailing address in your swap-bot profile so you can receive your gift!

Check the participant list often and make sure you update your Twitter friends list - It will make it easier to do some covert spying in case you get assigned someone you might not know. ;)

This swap is open to our Twitter friends. Spread the word!

Happy Holidays!

Whoever gets me, might want to get it in the mail by the first week of Christmas to allow for mailing to Iraq. Right now it only takes a week, but it will take twice as long by that time.

brendajos 11/ 7/2008 #

The first week of Christmas? Is that similar to the 12 Days of Christmas? ;-p

Just want to encourage everybody to put their twitter name in their profile if they aren't using it for their swap-bot name so we can find you and add you!

I had a blast doing the Twitter Glitter Gag Gift last year with everyone. Really looking forward to this year's antics :)

Do Tweet me! That way I can get to know you - and what your sense of humor is like... then to pick the perfect gift. We still have old world "medicine men" here in Hawaii I may confer with.

So fun to find out who I have to gift and meet. Thanks again @wickedstepmom for setting this up and allowing new people into the mix.

WickedStepmom 12/ 1/2008 #

Let the wild rumpus start!

geecheegirl 12/ 1/2008 #

I'm excited. Make sure to tweet me @geechee_girl on Twitter :)

katethegreat 12/ 3/2008 #

Folks... I am really looking forward to this! It reminds me of my high school Secret Santa days!

WickedStepmom 12/19/2008 #

Thanks to everyone for playing along!

Here's hoping all of your gifts arrive safe and sound, and bring with them plenty of smiles and happiness for the holidays. :)

I just got my gift! It was great!

I tried uploading a photo but it didn't seem to work.

fireton 12/19/2008 #

Had my swap sent from mail order place so didn't have a chance to include a card. All I can say is watch out for flying pigs. LOL

geecheegirl 12/20/2008 #

I have been without power and camping out at a friends house for 9 days thanks to the ice storm in NH. I've been talking with my swap partner, and she knows of the fact that I am here and her stuff is there. It will just be New Year's gifts! Wheee! @geechee_girl on twitter

geecheegirl 12/20/2008 #

his* stuff even <- must go have second cup of coffee...

mkhall 12/21/2008 #

I hope my partner likes the eccentric items I sent her. They coincide with some of her interests, although remembering to include the note of explanation might have helped. ~facepalm~

mkhall 12/21/2008 #

Oh, and I loved my autographed GrammarGirl book, @Tojosan Although I must confess, there is only one grammar girl for me.

tojosan 12/22/2008 #

You're quite welcome mkhall. So glad you like it.

BuckDaddy 12/29/2008 #

Maybe we should post here if we received or not. That way icf you did the person who sent it doesn't have to figure out if they need to track it or not.

I received mine.


amaaanda 12/29/2008 #

Received :) Mine was confirmed received as well.

WickedStepmom 12/29/2008 #

Mine just arrived! Will see if I have better luck adding a photo.

martinenglish 12/29/2008 #

Just a note to say thank you to @wickedstepmom for setting this up and following thru with the "did they / didn't they get sent" hassles.

And an extra special thanks to @danacea for the pressie :)

martinenglish 12/29/2008 #

I went to rate @wickedstepmom and @danacea -

@danacea was my original swap partner - see http://martin-english.com/images/swapbot01.jpg

However, in the rating panel swap bot shows my swap partner as Ann Miller (AnnOhio) - http://www.swap-bot.com/user:AnnOhio - see http://martin-english.com/images/swapbot02.jpg

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong ?

WickedStepmom 01/13/2009 #

Martin -

You were to send to @danacea and receive from @annohio Did you confirm with either?

geecheegirl 01/27/2009 #

I hope @fireton enjoyed his box of presents and toys :) I never did find out who had me, but there is a very good chance with all the bad weather we had in December that the package just didn't make it through.
