    Well here we are at that time of year where I get to use the Christmas smilies way too early, but it doesnít matter because there is a really good reason! So for those of you who have been trying to avoid THAT word, resist no longer!! Itís Christmas!! (Well, nearly).




    I am happy to announce I am now taking names of those who wish to be part of our Famous Annual Secrets Christmas Ornament Exchange (itís ok, I checked. The initials donít come out as anything rude. I don't think ).


    For anyone who may be new to this, I will secretly send each of you the name and address of another participant, and then you send a lovely Christmas Ornament to them. I know that over the years I have received a variety of beautiful decorations from members (we all have marvellous taste here of course!), and it is lovely to see them each year when I decorate the tree. They have become part of my festive traditions.


    So, if you would like to sign up for this yearís exchange please PM me, by the 31st October, with the following information:

    *Your Name
    *Forum Username
    *Your Address
    *Whether or not you are willing to send overseas
    *Whether your Christmas tree has a particular theme that you would like the sender to try to take into account.
    *Whether you have been naughty or nice this year. Oh, hang on, you can save that one for Santa


    Sometimes we need special Santaís Elves to help us out if, for whatever reason, someone does not receive their item. An elf would then be will asked to send a replacement for them out of the goodness of their heart If you are willing and able to volunteer for this please also let me know.


    Please note that the budget for ornaments is 10 US Dollars.

    The last day for posting your ornaments will be 14th November. This should give enough time for our various international postal systems to at least try to get them to us in time for trimming our trees


    Below are the official guidelines for the exchange. Please make sure you are aware of them before signing up. Thank you, and letís make it a wonderful exchange in the grand Secretís tradition!


    General Exchange Guidelines

    wdisneysecrets cannot be held responsible for the non-receipt of any exchange item - you enter into the exchange at your own risk.

    Only registered members may join an exchange. Please don't try to sign up your relatives, children, neighbours or dog as these will be politely declined.

    By signing up you agree to your address details being passed to another forum member.

    By signing up you agree not to pass any address or other personal details on to anyone, forum member or otherwise.

    Each exchange is for a specific item. Please expect only to receive that specific item. Extras in a package are entirely at the sender's discretion and no one should feel obliged to send anything other than what we are currently exchanging.

    Please obtain proof of posting where possible.

    Please advise on the appropriate thread when you have sent/received your package.

    We may need volunteers to act as exchange elves. If, for whatever reason, someone does not receive their item, we will ask an elf to send a replacement for them. If you are willing to volunteer for this please notify the exchange coordinator via Private Message.

    Please stick to the budget set by the exchange coordinator.

    If sending overseas please ship via Air Mail.

    Signing up for an exchange and then failing to post to your recipient will result in a 12 month suspension from future exchanges.

    Thank you for arranging this for us Deb, I'm in :D

    A PM is on the way :)










    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    Yikes!!!!!! Gave me shivers just looking at this! How can it be? Well I guess it is getting round that time. OH, the museum was testing our new snow machines the other day when a bunch of kindergarten kids were leaving for their bus...they about exploded!!!!!!

    Sensory overload. I think we have the same type machines spraying into our courtyard from on top of the building. We are programming our LED light banks to be all festive too! It is going to be a great display.

    Oh yeah...about the ornament exchange....The 'Skips are in!
