    If you would like to join AtoZ's ornament exchange on Elfster, click here:

    http://www.elfster.com/apps/exchange/Join.aspx?euid=42AA45EB-6DC4-4AAF-96FF-4BC33A97C258


    Sign up deadline is December 1, 2009. The draw will take place on December 2nd and you'll receive an email from Elfster with a member's name. But you won't know who got your name! The limit is $15, but please keep in mind that you need to think about shipping as well, so you may want to remain within $10-$15. If you would like to join, please check out the website. But if you do sign up, please be sure to put your mailing address on the website so you can receive your ornament!

    Also, please remember your commitment to send an ornament. It would be horrible if some people never got an ornament. :(


    Here are the rules:

    --Sign up on Elfster. You can go here to sign up.
    --You must sign up by December 1st, 2009. On December 2nd, Elfster will send you an e-mail with a randomly assigned person.
    --Elfster also has a place where you can put wish lists. You could list your likes/dislikes.

    You could also do a couple cheaper matching ornaments, right? Some I saw at target the other day were only a few dollars and I loved them.

    Actually this is what I plan to do. However, this might change after seeing what the person I draw wants.

    I signedu p, too.

    Elfster has a handy "anonymous" email form, too... so if your secret gifter has a question for you, they can ask without giving themselves away... that's really helpful if you see something but it isn't on theri idea list ;)

    I just got to thinking-any chance we could up the 'draw' date? By the time the 2nd rolls around, I'll be pressed to buy the ornament and get it in the mail fast, and the person will hardly have any time to enjoy it before Christmas day! Since people are starting to sign up fast, could we have the drawing Thanksgiving day or something, so we could get them in the mail faster? Just an idea...

    Yeah, I would say the draw date can be maybe before Black Friday since I know a lot of people shop then? Also, many people put up their tree the day after Thanksgiving.

    Okay, so should we have the drawing on Thanksgiving Day? The deadline to register would then need to be November 25th. Let me know what ya'll think!

    I agree with moving the date up.

    I am also excited. Yay! I start a new job at Michaels Friday and I get 25% off. I haven't had a chance to look at what they have yet, but I'm sure they'll have nice ornaments.

    For those looking, Cracker Barrel has some really cute ornaments in their gift shop!

    Suggestion:

    Deadline-Nov. 24th
    Drawning-Nov. 25th
    Stuff your face at Thanksgiving on the 26th then go shopping for your ornament or the 27th

    Hope these dates work for everyone. I am off for Veteran's Day today, and I wanted to get everything sorted out before craziness started again. If these dates don't work, I will be happy to change them again.
