So..I just got an ornament exchange email from Elfster

It told me it's been a year since the ornament exchange was set up last year!
Now, I know, it's dead in here. 
Hell, the previous ornament exchange stuff is still on the first page of posts! 
But, as in previous years, it's been my favorite.  Although last year, even though I believe everyone got their ornaments since no one told me otherwise, it was like pulling teeth trying to follow up and make sure that everyone got them. 
So I don't know if anyone is interested or not.
With so few people, it may not even be worth it, especially if communication is as annoying as it was last year.
Let me know your thoughts!

Re: So..I just got an ornament exchange email from Elfster

  • I would so be in!
  • I haven't participated before. What do I have to do?
  • For the Craft board holiday ornament exchange, everyone who is participating rsvp's on the website elfster.  You'd get an invite from me or whoever else ends up running it.  There would be a deadline to rsvp, say November 5th or something.  And then the website would automatically draw names from the people participating on the 6th.  Sort of a secret santa kind of deal. 
    And then you'd have around a month to ask anonymous questions to the person you are giving to, and the person giving to you would be asking you questions as well.  Things like favorite color, favorite hobby, how they decorate their tree, and so on.  And then you would make your person an ornament or two and send it off to them!
