SantaFest 2011!

Laura over at Daily Dodo had the wonderful idea of a blogosphere-wide Secret Santa on Friday. Yesterday, in collaboration with Loralie at Apathy's Hero, she made it a reality!

The idea is to create a gift that's all about your creativity and not money. So, for example, a gift could be a piece of short fiction, or a photograph, etc. Everyone who wants to be involved signs up to the Linky List, and then Randomizer.org chooses who gets to create a gift for who. Everything remains anonymous.

I love this idea! I think it'll be a lot of fun to create a gift for someone in the blog community, and nice to be involved in such a wide-reaching Secret Santa at the same time :).

If anyone else would like to join in, just hop on over to Laura's site, and sign up by the 12th December (next Monday). There's more information over on her site too.

I'm glad she ran with her idea! The timing doesn't work for me, but hope you guys get a lot of participants.

TF Walsh: Just what I thought.

Laura: You're welcome :).

Amie: Absolutely - a lot of fun, and a lovely way to get involved.

Kelley: I'm glad you think so too.

Alex: I'm always amazed how you manage to squeeze so much into the time you have. I think you've already done your not-so-Secret-Santa with everything you've done for bloggers. Thanks for the encouragement.

What a fun and original idea. I won't be able to take part this time, but I hope she does it again next year when things won't be so crazy for me!

Thanks everyone for your interest :).

Lyn: No worries. It's crazy busy this time of year, anyway, without adding something else in.

Eagle: Yay, another participant!
