The projet is cancelled due to a lack of participants

Hi fellow friends !

First time making a Journal on this group, and it is for a good reason : the Secret Santa project ! Thanks to Cimenord who had the idea, we are trying to launch this crazy project to put a smile on your face for Christmas :D

What is the project all about ?
It's about exchanging a gift with another person. Basically, you send a gift to a person, without him/her knowing that it's from you, and you receive a gift, without knowing who sent it to you. And of course, you can't alert the other person in any way who their Secret Santa is until they have received their gift. It's that simple, and the gift will make you happy, without a doubt.

What kind of gift ?
As we are on the Perler-Beads group, you'll have to make a character with beads, character that you'll choose from a wishlist that the other person will have made. The characters can't be bigger than 2 pegboards x 2 pegboards, and they must be not too complicated to complete.

How to participate ?
Be sure to make the gift during the small period of time
Add a Comment on this Journal
Send me a Note with : - a wishlist of 5 varied characters (with links, if possible, and explanation, if needed)
- your full address
- where you can send the gift (EU only, USA only, anywhere, ...)
Deadline to register : December 13

What to do when registered ?
Wait December 14 : we'll give you the address and the wishlist of the person that you'll make happy. Try to send the gift soon, the sooner the better. That way, they can receive it for Christmas, and put it under their tree. When you've sent it, tell us in a Note. And of course, don't put a picture of the gift on deviantART, to keep the suprise, and wrap up carefully the gift, that way it'll not break during the sending.

Finally, spread the word around you, because there are only a couple of days left. Favorite, write Journals, and make this project a success !

I uploaded a few to movies, I wasn't for sure if they were considered movies or cartoons (they're kind of both ^_^) I hope it's ok! Is there a limit to adding? I didn't want to spam or anything.

Hi guys. Thanks for adding me to the group. Since I use Hama beads instead of Perler (you can't really get that brand of beads here in Denmark), I hope I'm allowed to stay >w>;
Also, I don't see many (any?) people sowing the beads? It's a slightly different, but very nice way to work with beads as well ^^

Hi, and welcome !
You're allowed to stay, and you can also submit your art. This group is for the beads from all brands (Hama, Perler, PhotoPearls/Nabbi, Artkal, ...), as long as they are fusible beads (that you can iron). I'm from Belgium, and I use only Hama beads for now. But you can easily get other brands with Amazon, official sites, ..., but a little pricier.
I don't think I have ever seen people sowing the beads, but that's a nice way to use them. They are fusible beads, so they are more used for that I guess ^^. If you want to upload this kind of work, maybe put it in the "Misc." folder. We will maybe create a folder in the future for this type of use of the beads !
I hope that I helped you :)

I've put some up in misc, I figured that was the folder it fitted best ^^ I might make a tutorial at some point if people are interested. And yes, they are mainly used fused together, but I recall that at least Hama back in the days had inspiration-booklets showing patterns for sowing the beads as well ^^ Anyway, glad to be part of the group

Good initiative for the folder ^^. I think it could be interesting to see that tutorial. I don't quite know the history of Hama, but that's a good thing to know about the brand :)
Glad you're a part of this group :D

200 uploads to the group in one shot is a bit much don't you guys think.

Yes it is, and we are sorry for that. We are talking about the problem (we will maybe put a limit on the submissions per day) and we'll find solutions :D
Any advice for us to improve the group ?

10 Submissions a day should be enough.

I'm gonna to post here because I don't where I cool be best. So what did you guys thing of a secret santa perler beads thing that we "the beads community" can actually put in place and do for the christmas period. 

For the people who are wandering secret santa is simple you come in and technically are gonna do a drawing but a perler beads for a guy or a girl that you don't know until the day that we reveal his or her adress. Him or her will not know a thing about who does his or her perler beads that he or she will received.

We can put specific rules for perler beads. But I really want if some of you may be in for the idea in the first place. I kinda want to see if the we can share perler beads over the world in the first place ;)

Leave your thoughs about that as answers and thanks for reading my supposely broken english hope you got the general idea ;3
