Kaleanna did a great job of describing what we do once we get the items. I'll organize us into groups of 4 or 5 and everyone will go out on a little thread of their own and 'talk junk'.
Here is a link to the original thread for when Satori organized this last year. You can get a feel for what everyone chatted about on their individual threads that were created and linked to 'the mother ship' thread.
Once everyone has collected the amount of items they will send, at a specified time we will mail little envelopes of goodies to one another, post about sending and receiving on the individual threads, and also do readings on those threads. I have suggested 7 - 10 items, because you need to send that many to maybe 4 or 5 people, so then you might have to find as many as 50 items. That may be easier for some than others. But each group can ultimately decide what number works for them.
