Christmas Secret Santa

Also known as Elfing, this is where everyone who signs up is assigned someone to "elf."
This means that you do something nice for them, in this case we encourage a picture.

So to sign up:
* Send a Private Note to SiLK
* State Any Preferences (do you want a picture of your fanmaren? a pet? a favorite character?)
* By signing up, You Agree to draw for another member. No One gets Left Out! (Because nobody here is that mean spirited, I hope!)

When you have finished your gift art, do NOT post it anyplace public!
Instead, give it to SiLK .

I will distribute the gift art to everyone.

Now the last part is that in the version that I play at work, all gifts are anonymous. That means that you do not sign it or let your "elfee" know who is giving them this gift.

At the end, the recipient gets to guess who their "Santa" or "Elf" is.
I encourage anyone to then give a thank you gift back to your benefactor, but it's not required. it's just a nice gesture.

Anyone who stiffs their assigned person and fails to give anything, will be banned from next year's Secret Santa. I do not like seeing anyone getting their feelings hurt because someone else didn't care enough to do such a simple thing. If you're not sure that you can follow through, please just don't sign up!

So to recap, contact me privately to sign up, draw a picture for the person I assign to you, give the picture to me to pass out, and if you're feeling appreciative, draw something in return for the person giving to you when you find out who they are.

Let's try to keep it fun and pleasant!

Just a reminder that we need a lot more people involved here before Christmas hits!
When signing up, please try to give an idea of what you would like drawn for you. Just give some keywords so that your Secret Santa can be imaginative with what they make for you. Smile

Does anyone else want to participate? I'm closing the entry phase this Sunday, to give everyone plenty of time to come up with something to draw.

Oh, I'm running too many events at once! There is such a thing as having too much spirit XD

So is this everyone who wants in? The sign up phase ends tomorrow (Sunday) and I'll be sending everyone their assignments tomorrow night.

You don't have to be an artist, we all know that it's the thought that counts. Just put your heart into whatever you make, and you'll do fine.

A major apology goes out. Your Admin is one severely overwhelmed lady right now!
The event is extended until New Years Day, January first to make it up to everyone.

I'll try to get everyone's assignments out between tonight and tomorrow. Probably tomorrow since unfortunately, I'm very sick at the moment.

The event's on, though!

We're still missing a few pictures, but I'll put up what we do have.
Remember, don't claim credit for anything you may have drawn! It's more fun to let people guess. Smile
