A Few Announcements & Reminders

Posted: December 6, 2010 at 10:48 am

Tina from Carrots N Cake is hosting a blog bake sale (today only) to go towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Team in Training. My peppermint mocha fudge is up for bid there. So, put in an offer! Making fudge makes me feel better. 😉 CLICK FOR THE BAKE SALE!

Blogger Holiday Gift Exchange Info & Reminders: I sent out emails with the information on who you will be buying for yesterday afternoon. Please let me know if you did not receive one! A few reminders -

  • $20 spending limit before shipping, but anything in a $10-20 range is fine
  • Ship your packages before Dec 20th so people should definitely receive them before the end of the year and closer to the holiday celebrations
  • It’s Secret-Santa style so try not to tell who you are buying for. Let her be surprised! It’s not a huge deal, but “Secret Santa” is what I had in mind. DO include a card or note letting your recipient know who you are with the gift. 🙂
  • Please let me know when you receive your package, so I can keep track. And share a link if you post about it for a gift exchange round up I plan on doing. 🙂

Look for a regular post around noon – well, regular for another emotional post. I just wanted to be sure to get this info out there as soon as possible. 🙂
