One full year of friendship, fun and creativity If you like to share and you care about others, now is your opportunity to join a great group of women who love to create and share. This swap is a year long swap and we are now in our 9’th year of fellowship, fun, and creativity.
     We are the “Sharing and Caring Sisters” (aka) SACS We are secret for one year to your assigned Secret Sister and you must remain a secret and keep her guessing all year as to who you really are. To keep the suspense and of course, the secret, you must not reveal who you are until the end of the year! In return you will receive the same from your assigned Secret Sister.
    This is a year-long mini swap* that is meant to foster friendship and give you a chance to share your ideas and creativity with someone new. You will have the opportunity to celebrate your Secret Sister's milestones and get to know her throughout the year 2020.
What is the commitment?
         1) You just need to send your assigned Secret Sister two (2) full cards by the 10th of

              each month starting January 2020  

         2)  You must post and also share your photos on SC of what you have received.  We

               all love to see the creativity from everyone.

         3)   If you cannot send by the 10th you must email me  to let me know so I can inform

               your SS that you are running late.

         4)  If you have not received by the 15th you must also email me so I can find out

              what is going on.  We have in the past ran into a lot of various issues that have

              prevented some from sending and with this double check I am able to have an

              an angel step in to help in those necessary life situations.

  • Boy oh boy I am totally loosing it in more way than one.  Today hubby went to get the mail and upon returning he came in with a card and a die. Now the die was not from Marion but I totally forgot I got it and actually contacted the company complaining because I had not received my order.  Will be contacting them to apologize.  
    now I need to apologize to Marion Greenland. She was my SS that I sent to. She sent me a beautiful Christmas card and a lovely note. Thank you so very much 8508120498?profile=RESIZE_710x

  • Thank you so Much Jolanda for the Wonderful package that you sent me. It was so exciting finding your package this morning along with my New SS package.  I love the cards, the soft socks, the magnolia sachet smells beautiful and the gorgeous bandana. I enjoyed being your Secret Sister last year and look forward to continue our friendship. 


  • I am such a lucky gal to have had the secret sister that I had  in 2020. Melanie you are a true paper craftsman! Your creations you sent to me the entire year were nothing short of amazing. I looked forward to receiving them every month. December’s was again so so creative and GORGEOUS!  Canada Post only took 20+ days to get it to me but it was worth the wait.  We will stay in touch as we are sisters by chance. Too many parallels in our lives not to believe that. Thank thank you for such an amazing 2020 and a start with my beautiful 2021 calendar. I appreciate you❤️
