Calling all Sports Racers!

Last year, Luke the Runner set up a Secret Santa exchange on the ORG and it was so much fun!

Let's do it again, but this time let's exchange handmade items. So many of you are creative in so many different ways. It'll also be a great way for us to reconnect as a group.

I set up an exchange for us - The Duckie Handmade Christmas - on elfster.com

Here are the details:
We're all creative in some way*.

Art, music, words, food... Share your creativity with other duckies this year.

Register and create your profile. In the wish list section, enter any items that you would like that are handmade or that you could use in your creative endeavors (yarn, exotic ingredients, craft books, fancy paper, etc). You can even include links to the items online.

*If you feel you are indeed, not creative, but would still like to participate: instead of making something for your partner yourself, purchase something hand-crafted by someone else (6-year old factory workers don't count). Or you can give your partner something that will aid in his or her creative endeavor (this is where the wish lists come in). For example, if you're paired with someone who likes to crochet, you could send him or her a bag of nice yarn. Or if you're paired with a writer, you can send him or her a writing journal or a reference book. Or if you're paired with a painter, you can purchase a gift certificate for an art supply catalog... You will see his or her wish list to help guide you in your gift selections.

Sign up by December 5th. After December 5th, will receive the information on your partner. Send your gift by December 17th (so your duckie partner gets it by Christmas).

Note: your personal information will remain hidden to everyone but your partner. If you don't want your partner to have your home address, you can use "Hold for Pickup" and indicate that you want your package sent to your nearest post office instead.

Open to international participants.

Let's start making stuff!
