I have sent all the secret sister info out.If you haven't gotten it please let me know and I will send it again. Please try to send a suprise to your secret sister by the end of the month. If you have a question to ask, please send it to me and I will ask it for you.

I am not participating in this swap, but will be available to help whoever needs it.

Have fun ladies and let the stalking begin.


We used to do a secret sister swap that was much loved and I have decided it is time to bring it back. This swap will go from July to December, you will be expected to send a gift to your secret sister each month, it doesn't have to be anything big or expensive. A book you have read sent by media mail would be perfect. In between you can send a card or post card if you choose, you could also choose to order from Amazon, etsy, etc and have it shipped to your secret sister to keep them guessing. Now I know you can guess by the postmark, but a lot of us don't look, just to keep it a mystery. December will be our big reveal. You will send a nice Christmas gift telling your partner who you are. Sign-ups will go through July 1st. Your first gift must be mailed before the end of July. I hope lots of you will join for 6 months of mystery and fun.


When you sign up below, please add a few things your secret sister would love to know. Favorite color, food allergies, favorite season etc. anything that will help her choose thoughtful gifts for you.

A little rain can straighten a flower stem. A little love can change a life.

Hi Julie,

I have always loved this swap! Please sign me up and thank you for hosting.

Marcy

My favorite color is any shade of pink.

I love to do just about any craft out there. I knit, crochet, sew, quilt, needle felt, paper craft and embroider. I have also just started learning how to weave on a small lap loom, and I always love to learn new things.

I love to read (I am a book nut) I love to read just about anything.

I love history, especially anything to do with North America, England, Scotland, or Russia.

I love any and alll animals.

I love to bake.

I love milk chocolate-plain or with caramel or peanut butter.

Christmas and Halloween are my favorite holidays.

I would be happy with anything. Just knowing that I am being thought of is wonderful.

I don't know yet Debbie. I am thinking no, I just wanted to create a little secret sister excitement like we had for the secret Santa. That also frees me up to send a bonus surprise to a special farmgirl each month. I always enjoy seeing everyone's packages, so I am OK with that.

I would love to join. Thank you for hosting,Julie! I hope it’s not a problem I join, because I live in Canada. My last secret sister went online and bought things from Canadian companies to they didn’t need to fill out a customs form and to keep me truly guessing!

My favourite colour is yellow. I love the season fall. I love all things pumpkin and apples when fall comes around. I do enjoy reading, but between homeschooling and teaching piano I don’t really have a lot of extra time on this season of my life. When I do read, it’s usually a wholesome Christian book - either fiction or non-fiction. I sew a lot of my daughters clothing, and quilt a bit on the side when there is time. I love my goats, chickens and jersey cow.

Hi RachelLeigh… I new to this stuff too. I am in the birthday card swap and the July 4th swap. So far it has been wonderful. It is a fun way to connect to some of the other Farmgirls. It is nice to relax and chat with some of the other girls about anything that enters my mind. Hope you enjoy this. I think both of us will.
