Very basically - those of us who wish to participate give our names and adddresses to Jean0609. We will be given the name/address of someone else (our name goes to someone else) and we send some sort of ornament.

As Jean said she will be post more info/rules soon. One big thing is to not post your personal info publically here - send to her via PM once it's time.

You beat me to it. I got a message from our dear Chenheart the other day, asking if I would do the ornament exchange for her again this year. I graciously agreed to it. Hopefully, will send out detail in the next few days.

If you look under any post where it says "report as offensive", if anyone clicks that it will change to "flagged". This means that Greta or someone else at CSN will look at it and decide whether to remove it or not.

Bless you, sweet Jean, for taking this on. It has meant so much to so many. I don't know what is more fun: giving or receiving? The ornaments I have received have been so thoughtful and have touched me so much. And I enjoy trying to buy something fun and relevant for the name that I get. So much fun!!! Just do it Pink Warriors!!!!

Hugs,
