REMINDER: There are only two more weeks left to join! Now is the time for old and new to come take part in the holiday gift exchange fun, be sure to get your member request sent in time and don't forget to include your wishlist!
HOW TO JOIN
What is it?
CandyCane-Lane is a Secret Santa group. Each member will write up a wishlist for their secret santa containing different ideas for drawings they'd like to receive. Once everyone is assigned a secret santa, you'll receive another member's wishlist. It's your job to draw at least 1 idea from their wishlist and you'll receive a very special drawing from another member in return.
We ALWAYS make sure everyone that completes a gift receives a gift in return, no matter what, so you don't have to worry about any disappointment in our event!
To be able to join you must follow these rules:
Be committed to your Secret Santa gift: You MUST finish your gift before or on the due date.
(If somehow you realize that cannot finish in time please let us know within, if possible, at least a week's notice of the due date)
Your gift must be completely of your own creation, which means no tracing or usage of bases.
Do not complain about who you are assigned to, unless you have a circumstance where you absolutely cannot draw for them. Assignments will be random.
Additional rules can be found here, by joining you agree to abide by these rules.
Now you're ready to send a member request, be sure to read what you need to include otherwise you won't be able to join us!
What you need to include in your member request:
1. A link to a journal or stash entry containing a list of three to five ideas for your secret Santa's gift.
(Example: kittybaka-chan.deviantart.com/… )
Remember to either include a reference or extensive description of your character's appearance.
2. State what you like to draw and in what style (possibly gender if you tend to draw only one gender)
(Example: People; Anime)
3. State if you have anything you can NOT draw.
Please include if you have any fandoms, character types, genres, or specific people which you do not want to draw.
4. State if you would be able to make an extra secret Santa gift at a week's notice in case someone drops out.
5. Send us a member request (not a note) with all this info at CandyCane-Lane!
Example member request:
"Hi! I really want to join this secret santa group! Here is my list! [link] I like to draw People; Cartoon and Animals; Realistic. I do not want to draw any boys. And if I'm needed I think I can make an extra picture!"
(How to send a member request?)
You're welcome to change any of your wishes later on, so don't be worried about having to be committed to your journal list, but please be sure to update the same journal!
Please register as a member by November 24th, remember you are not a member unless your name appears in our member's list. You will always receive a confirmation from us if you've been added to the group.
If you have any questions or comments feel free to contact the founders Kittybaka-chan or PrinceofSpirits!
Please feel free to tell your friends about the event, so we can get more members!
The more we have, the more the fun! C:
