Welcome to Secretly-Santa-2011

Before asking questions, please check the FAQ journal

:santa: Hello and Welcome to Secretly-Santa-2011 :santa:

There are no more slots on this Secret Santa, please refrain from asking to join.
On behalf of myself and Maddie-Pie We would like to thank firstly everyone who joined and submitted their gift; thank you ever so much, it means so much that people actually joined it~! Secondly to Hardrockangel For helping organize those without a present, whilst Maddie-Pie and I are really busy with exams, you have been a real life saver! :hug:
For more Thank yous please go to the Journal Page

We are a Secret Santa group that anyone can join all you have to do is;
:bulletgreen: Become a member of our group
:bulletred: Comment saying you want to participate!
We have had to introduce a Cut Off Point for Participators, it will be 150 (We have had to enforce this, due to a high command and it is becoming a lot of work for Maddie-Pie and I)

You have until October 30th to say you would like to participate!
The blog on the right will show the participants list, which will be updated regularly with new participants and their Wishlists ♥
Wishlist template can be found here; secretly-santa-2011.deviantart…
Who you draw for will be randomly assigned!

:santa: Rules :santa:

:bulletgreen: Most Importantly Don't tell the person you are giving your gift to who you are! This will spoil the fun of the Secret Santa if you do.
:bulletred: Once you have finished your gift send the group a note with the attatched picture so no one on the front page can see who your gift receiver is.
:bulletgreen: All gifts must be in by December 20th (We will then submit all your gifts to the group and people can browse the gifts. From December 20th-25th give your gift to your secret santa partner!)

:santa: What you can do for your Gift :santa:

:bulletred: It has to be a picture or icon (digital or traditional)
NO Writing, Photography, Cosplay, Plushies or Models
:bulletgreen: No mature content gifts
:bulletred: It has to follow what their Wishlist has stated

:santa: What happens once I've drawn it? :santa:

:bulletgreen: We've had this question asked a couple of times, so here is the answer!
:bulletred: Everyone is to upload their picture by December 20th.
:bulletgreen: Upload it to dA with the title Secretly-Santa-2011
:bulletred: Then send us a link to the picture in a note you must have done this before sending the link to your partner.
:bulletgreen: Then evey one will have the chance to browse the gifts by looking in the featured folder of the gallery.
:bulletred: We will eventually after December 25th update the Participants list with what their gift is, so if anyone does forget (please don't!) It will be there anyway.

For Full FAQ and Deadlines please visit; secretly-santa-2011.deviantart…
:santa: Don't forget to check out the newly updated About Us section and the participants lists! :santa:

Also there are no slots available for admin members.





This is the list we'll be working with to draw for those who haven't received anything yet.
And please: if you joined after the 30th of October, meaning after the closing date to sign-up, it's normal you haven't received a present since you're not a participant.

So please, to those who joined after the sign-up date: do not comment saying you haven't received a gift yet, since it's because you missed the sign-up date and thus aren't counted as a participant. OTL"

That being said: I already randomly paired up a couple of people who commented on the journal saying they'd be willing to draw for others.
I'll also be doing a couple of avatars and Madz69 and Bee-chii will be drawing chibis.

To find your name and who you're drawing for, use F3 to search the journal.
If needed, I can tell you in a comment or via note as well.

I know the Santa won't be really secret that way, but this is easier to keep track off and it sure beats sending notes out again. ^^;

I think this group was very well organized by *Madz67 && *Beehive67 , they have put in their own time and efforts in order to provide this for us.

I also think it is very kind of them to draw for those who have not received anything by January 1st. They could do nothing, but with kindness in their hearts, are determined to make sure that nobody is missed out!

Ps. Whoever is my Secret Santa, c: please don't keep me waiting! <3

A BIG CHEER FOR THESE TWO GIRLS!!! :iconmadz67: && :iconbeehive67: !!!!

This comment is to say thank you for what you've done.

Who's behind me?! (:

~ On behalf of myself && the other participants in this group! ~ xo

Oh, you just have to send either :iconbeehive67: or :iconmadz67: a note, saying that you haven't gotten one yet.
