    January Theme

    I'm going to start with a theme for January (yes you are getting it early ) I thought it best that I start it off since we will most likely be getting the bulk of the new participants in January and I want as many as possible in my theme drawing basket before I start the drawings. So the drawings will start January 15.

    January Theme - Seasonal Holiday

    Pick any holiday in the year and base your gift on that. It can be your favorite holiday or one that just pops out in your creative mind

    I do have a question though that I'd like feedback on. When I do the drawings do you want the originator of the theme to be named in the post or do you want that kept secret?

    I think you should name them....so they can receive the proper praise for such a great idea, or get booed and hissed at for picking something so difficult, lol.

      Posting is OK - BUT, no booing - if something is a little more challenging - then we can all learn new lessons!! There is the old saying - you won't please everyone all the time . . . . Have fun

        Oh my gosh Carlie are you reading my mind? I was just thinking how much I wanted to start to make a Secret Santa present!!!! THANK YOU!
        Plus your January theme is just the best! I love it, thanks

        I'd love to know who picked what theme. I think it would be nice to be part of a team of friends who creates and develops ideas together

          I agree Juliet. I'm thinking I'll add a question of the information sheet I mail out to new participants that give the option to keep their names secret if they put yes for participating in the drawings. I have the feeling most people wouldn't object but some people are also shy.

          As far as not liking a particular named theme, remember we are always told in September when we get our names that there are two "people's choices" where we can replace a theme with our own idea. So there really is a lot of flexibility.

            Love the wide open theme, gives us a bit of freedom for the start.

                      I would like to know the originator of the theme. Sounds like a great idea to have others ideas.

                          I think she is letting us suggest themes for some of the months. Thus you would get to name the theme for the month.

                              Thanks for the early notice for January's theme. Now to narrow down my choices. I think you should leave the decision up to the person that suggested the idea.
