The sign-up deadline will be Monday, November 21st.  That way you can utilize the Thanksgiving holiday sales!  


RULES:
Please post the responses to the questionnaire here on the forum (and if you can think of anything else that would be helpful, please do add it!  We can never know TOO much...well, wait, I suppose we actually could...but you know what I mean ;)).  Then please pm me your forum name, real name, and mailing address.  You must pm me to be included in the exchange.

After I receive information for all participants I will make a random match list.  Each person will receive a name and provide a gift(s) based on the questionnaire.  If you DO NOT wish to be matched with a spouse, the person you had last year, etc. please let me know in your pm.

Deadline to mail gifts out will be December 14 (that is a Wednesday, so that people should have them in hand before whichever holiday they choose to celebrate.  Don't feel like you need to spend a small fortune!  As always, the minimum price is a stamp and an envelope.  In the past, people have received books, faire accessories, faire favors, CDs, DVDs, calendars, all kinds of beautiful hand made items...be creative!  

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE (I cannot say please enough on this one!!!), if you think there is a chance that you will not be able to afford to do this, do NOT sign up!  It is not fair to the person who is waiting for a gift to have their secret gift fairy back out at the last minute.  I *do* understand that sometimes unexpected situations happen after you have signed up...if that is the case, just let me know, and I will get your person rematched.  But if you are expecting to be a little short on dough this year, please do not sign up!  

And as always have fun!!! :D

15. Briefly describe your character:
My ren character is a archer/forester by trade. Although she comes from upper middle class she'd much rather spend time in the woods than at court.
My steampunk character is part of an airship crew that trades in lightning. Tougher than most of the guys on the ship and has a skewed sense of proper dress when in port. Will mix a poofy sleeved shirt with leather pants and a face covered in soot.

If I think of anything else between now and the deadline Ill add it, or if someone else comes up with another good question to add

Auryn:
I can do the card list no problem  ;D

Seriously the midwinter exchange and card exchange are one of the highlights of the year for me.

Don't have a "highlight" gift like the RenBabes Calender this year, but I'll think of something...  ;)

Take Care,
David Baldock
