    Spring Curlfriends Gift Exchange

    Lets celebrate with a SECRET SISTER GIFT EXCHANGE! This exchange will be done through Elfster.com

    Link to the exchange on Elfster:
    Gift Exchange: Spring Curlfriends Exchange


    Details:
    The minimum spending limit is $35...if you choose to go over, that is fine, but I want to be fair for everyone.

    Sign up deadline is Friday March 8, 2013
    Names will be AUTOMATICALLY drawn and sent to your email address the following day.

    Gifts should be sent out by or before Friday March 22, 2013. (That gives you two weeks)


    There won't be any guidelines as to WHAT hair products should be included in the package.

    But everyone should include an extra "something" creative (not hair related) that you think your curlfriend can enjoy!

    Let's celebrate Spring!

    Also if your Elfster name is different than your CurlyNikki name, there is a question in the questionnaire to clarify when you draw names on Elfster. Make sure you use the CORRECT mailing address on Elfster because that address will be where you items are shipped.
