OTSPSecretSister. What is it you ask? Well it is the fabulous brain child of Alyssa, Amy, and Brittany. It is basically a 6 month project of “secret Santa” created to help bring cheer into each others lives. The three awesome ladies running it take a full day and look over all of the “applications” that have been sent in. They study them and then pair each person up accordingly based on their questionnaire answers. Then for the next 6 months you are required to send your “Sister” a package, a small gift, a card, a note, something that will make them smile. If is up to each person if you would like to reveal yourself or stay a secret and it has become a thing of beauty between bloggers and readers. You can find out more about it HERE.
Personally I have been doing OTSPSecretSister since it started in August of 2014. I just received the name of my 3rd person and I’m really excited about it. I always miss the “sister” I got to know for 6 months but I also love the idea of sending someone new some cheer. I love buying people presents and I love seeing the thought people put into the things they send me.
My past two sisters have been awesome! In the first round, the inaugural round, I received cheer from the lovely Katie. Katie and I did not really know each other before Secret Sister but Katie took the time to see what I would love and what I liked to do in my spare time.
My second sister was someone I knew well that I even traveled with to BEA. The lovely Lauren had me and she made my second experience special by making me laugh every package and note by making everything come for Anna St. Clair and writing the cards like Anna wrote them. Once again Lauren took to the time to see what I would want and love. And she had the harder part of hiding who she was since I have exchanged mail with her before this.
So while round 3 is just about underway I am getting excited to give cheer and receive some. Thank you once again Katie and Lauren. And thank you to our leaders Amy, Brittany and Alyssa. I don’t know who you are Secret Sister #3, but I thank you too already.
So who else is taking part this time? Who is planning to sign-up next round?
