Be sure to sign up if you were thinking about it or it might be too late!
Also, sorry I jumped the gun. Just realized today was actually Saturday, not Sunday.
EmoteSecretSanta is an emote gift exchange that opens up every winter. Every participant will make one gift for another participant, chosen at random, and will receive a gift in return. We hope to spread a little joy this holiday season and that we can get everyone in the emote community a gift this holiday season!
Keep in mind: You do not have to be any sort of religion to take part in EmoteSecretSanta, nor do you have to be a master at making emoticons. We just hope you come with an eagerness to try to make the best present you can for whoever you're assigned.
- Anyone who is interested in EmoteSecretSanta, send a sign up note to the group. This note should include information, like possible themes or ideas for a present, links to any emote OCs you have, and any other relevant information (like if you live in a warmer climate or celebrate Hanukkah instead of Christmas).
- Once the sign ups are closed (dates below), I will send each of the participants a note detailing which emoticonist (chosen at random) they have been selected to make a present for. Keep in mind: You may be asked to draw anything from a snowman to a dinosaur to a fire-breathing dragon, so be prepared to take on any theme an emoticonist may throw at you.
- Once you have received your assignments, you will have to make a work containing an emote and at least one of the artist's themes. When you have completed the task, upload the finished work to Sta.sh and send a note to the group. Do not talk to others about your assignment; we don't want to ruin the surprise!
- Once all the presents have been collected, one from each emoticonist, a journal will be compiled. It will be uploaded for everyone to see on Christmas day! :happybouce:
