Not sure what happened with the above post.

I discovered that I can't work on my swaps until I get a new pair of tweezers, but hopefully by the weekend my new set will be delivered.

No teasers from anyone? Lol

I'm floating on cloud nine just getting to participate! And I'm so excited about it that there's no way that I could tease or hint without getting caught or figured out.

First swap .  Maybe a silly question - but 

I know we package individually, but is this a secret Santa sort of thing, or do we put our name on the individual packages, so you know not to send my item back to me?

Deana will know whose items they are if only because your name will be on the return address, eh? :)

Some folks package the items and let the hub parcel them out anonymously, others indicate who the item is meant to be sent to. The latter especially if each of the items is not identical. You really should put your name in each item, so the recipient knows who made it.

Shoot! I didn't put my name on them!

Not to worry ... Deana will probably take a photo of the whole set to post here. Or if she doesn't, you can tell everybody in this thread after everyone has received their package. :) 

It's only a secret until everyone in the swap has received his or her package of goodies --- then we all get to enjoy them, even if it's vicariously.

~~~> Just in general, whether for a swap or gift giving or for your own use, it's always a good idea to put your name and the date on every item you make. How many posts have appeared here wondering who made something and when? Lots! One day the results of your labor may end up in a yard sale or on Craig's list or eBay, and enquiring minds want to know. <~~~
