Postby PhoenixRising » Mon Sep 24, 2018 9:34 pm

Checking to see if we have interest in doing a gift exchange again this year... Christmas is really only 3 months away! :o
If there's interest, I'll coordinate again this year.



***EDIT***
Here we go! For those wishing to participate, Here is what you need to know!

This is our annual Christmas gift exchange. To participate please fill out the form below and email it to DDBBKringle@gmail.com. I'll get your Kringle assignment emailed back to you by the 22nd of November. You'll go shopping for your Kringle, find that perfect gift and stick it in the mail! If we have anyone wanting to join in the exchange after Nov 22nd, I’ll do my best to accommodate! Please try to get your gifts in the mail early enough to arrive before Christmas.

Happy Kringling!

Nothing here either; I was wondering the same thing. I am guessing that she has been busier than normal.

My apologies everyone! I have received your emails and will be sending out matches soon! I got a big promotion at work a few weeks ago and haven’t had the time there as I had planned to organize( I used to have a LOT of down time) Then over this weekend I didn’t have access to a computer as I thought. I’m currently snowed in in Colorado due to the major highways we would take home being closed because of blizzard like conditions. We hope to make it home tomorrow, where I’ll have access to a computer again.
