The 2011 Fourth Annual BOL Ornament Exchange…Accept NO imitations!

For those who are new to the game, here's how it works: I pull names and randomly pair each BOLer with an ornabuddy for them to send an ornament to. A decoration is also acceptable (some BOLers may indicate a preference). The requirement is one ornament or decoration in the $10 range (or handmade) but some people opt to send two ornaments or include candy or other goodies. What you send beyond the one ornament is up to you—please do not send more if you will be upset if your buddy sticks to the guidelines and sends you one ornament.

Your mailing address is provided to me and your ornabuddy only. Ornaments must arrive to your ornabuddy by Thanksgiving. Names are kept secret from the group until everyone receives their ornament (but include your name with your ornament so your ornabuddy can thank you when they receive it). After Thanksgiving, when everyone has their ornaments, we all have fun guessing who the ornabuddies were by giving clues about the BOLer who sent our ornament (though I already know who sent mine).

If you want to participate this year, please send me a PM with the subject "2011 Ornament Exchange."
Include your real name and mailing address in one line, i.e. “Betty Boler, 4045 Main Street, Anytown, CA 92101” as this helps me input you into my spreadsheet easier. I will use your PM to communicate with you during the course of the exchange…getting info, sending you your ornabuddy assignment, etc, so do not delete it.

The cut-off date to participate and send me a PM is Friday, September 30th.

Ornabuddies will be assigned around October 1-3 and the PM for the exchange will begin after that. The PM is set up for all the participants to get to know each other and share details to help you pick an ornament or decoration. The PM is very active, so you will want to turn off email alerts for PMs. Otherwise, your inbox will be clogged with PM notifications. From the threads, go to “My Stuff” and then “Edit Preferences” to turn off email notifications.

Once the PM is set-up, I cannot add additional participants, so please make sure to send me a PM by the September 30 deadline.

Let the fun begin!!!
