Take a big breath, relax... :cloud9: You posted a beautiful photograph in the Eisteddfod, and that's a hugely competetive category with so many entries. I for one would be delighted to have such a gift as that (or any other beautiful nature photograph). And then I would certainly wish to know who had sent it to me.

The spirit is behind the gift. No need for embarrassment, and no one is going to "not like" your gift. If it really bothers you, you can always tell Twyrch that you wish to remain anonymous, and maybe he can list you as "anonymous"? Just a thought.
That's right, it's the spirit of the gift that really matters. This isn't a contest, but rather a way for each of us to get to know another person a little better and share the gift of ourselves with them. If you would prefer to remain anonymous, I can do that, but I would encourage you to trust in yourself and your partner. I'm sure whoever receives your gift will welcome it gladly. :hug:

I have added everyone to the list, who has asked, and placed that list in my initial post. If you don't see your name on that list, please let me know. :)

We've had 18 people sign up in the first week, so things are looking good. :grin:

Well, I sure want to be part of this. But as you all probably know by now, I cannot even post a picture to this board, and I have absolutely no creative talents.

So, beware, potential "gift" recipient!

Also, I will be gone during the giving and receiving period, so I will have to work something out.

Twig, I'll get you added. Remember, it's not the gift but the thought that counts. That's what this exchange is all about... remembering the true meaning of this season and not the commercialized version.

If you're going to be gone during those times, then you can send it to me early, like Mey did. You have my e-mail address, so you can do that too, if it's easier for you. I'm here to serve. :)

Hennie, welcome aboard.

Neeltje, I hope you don't withdraw simply because you don't live on the forum. My time is severely limited these days as well. I've sent you a PM, though, and if you choose to withdraw, I'll remove you from the list. Just let me know.

Well, still have a bit of time to sign up, right?

Not been around very long, and don't really know any one here yet. But hey, that's what this is about right? Getting to know people.

So why not, sign me up.
