what if i don't know how to hex?
there are lots of things you can give other than hexed items, especially during the holiday season! some suggestions include coupons for graphics or photoshoots, mootique gift cards, sets bought from mootiques, artwork, or anything you can come up with! additionally, look out for an extra special gifting shop coming next week, where an extremely limited number of custom hexed goods will be available (for purchase as gifts exclusively). remember, it's the thought that counts - you might not think you're a brilliant hexer, but your recipient will be delighted by anything you make if you do hex something!

Eeeee I am super jazzed about this! I can’t wait to spoil my secret Santa
Your name: Tina! Your email: firstname.lastname@example.org Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): I have very strong feelings about colors! I love a pastel warm-biased yellow, sea foam green, that color of orchid purple that is almost pink, I love a soft warm grey, and all pastels. As for patterns I am huge on vintage floral patterns, but I also enjoy a sassy trellis pattern. I love to mix and match my babyz clothes and rarely stick to one set! Some things you love: foxes, alpacas, daisies, peonies, CORGIS, anything cutesy. I also love a lot of geeky things to, such as Star Wars and Harry Potter, science, space themed things. Some things you like on babyz: freckles, cute themes, light colored eyes Some things you dislike on babyz: no rosies is a deal breaker for me. Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: I am the jolliest atheist you will ever meet! I love Christmas. My favorite holiday tradition is where we will bundle up, drink got chocolate with candy canes, and drive around the town looking at lights. We’ve done it since I was a child and now I take my niece and nephews. My family celebrates Christmas Eve more than Christmas Day. My extended family and our family friends all gather together, we eat lefse (a Scandinavian meal, DELICIOUS), and a variety of finger foods. We open all the presents after dinner, then we have a cookie and candy feast of homemade sweets! On Christmas Day it’s more of an immediate family affair. We go to my parents house and open our stockings. We have a formal sit-down dinner of ham, turkey, and steamed cranberry pudding for dessert with a rich vanilla butter sauce Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc): I am open to anything! Please don’t be hurt if I don’t keep a baby however, I am absolutely eager to meet a new baby, but I am a little picky and don’t have as much time to play as I’d like. >.<
Your name: Bobbi Jo Your email: email@example.com Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): Colors: my favorite colors are green, purple, and turquoise. Although I also really like bright colors depending on how it's incorporated. Patterns: paisley is my ultimate favorite. I also like polka dots, hearts, stars, and chevron. Style wise: I like things that are practical and down to earth. Some things you love: books (and kids based on book characters), music, sims, harry potter, animals, daisies, quotes or sayings, baking Some things you like on babyz: I'm open to pretty much anything as long as there is a nice aesthetic. I tend to prefer subtle themed kids over heavily themed ones. Although I do have quite a few heavily themed kids that I adore. My general likes are: subtle themes, firefly eyes, ombre hair, tattoos, freckles and rosies, unique natural skin tones (other than the standard game white or 36 skin tones). Some things you dislike on babyz: brites, odd shaped noses, baldies, lack of rosies or freckles. Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: Our traditions are pretty standard. We always decorate the weekend after Thanksgiving. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays! My son gets to open one gift from Santa on Christmas Eve. We always read "The Night before Christmas" before he goes to bed. Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc) I would be thankful for anything, although I will be a little picker about adding babyz just because my family is so large and I've been neglectful of Milk lately.
Your name: Amy Your email: firstname.lastname@example.org Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): My favourite colours are green and yellow, I like mismatch patterns and polkadots. I really like t-shirts with collars and fuzzy jumpers and hats in clothing items. Some things you love: I love Pokemon especially fire/ghost Pokemon. I really like Sherlock Holmes too and anything pirate themed. I am a big Harry Potter fan and I am team Slytherin all the way. I really like animals and have very strong views on animal rights. Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc) Some things you like on babyz: Freckles and rosy cheeks. Some things you dislike on babyz: Bright eyes or skin tones. Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: This year we are going to my parents house for Christmas to have a big dinner there. Theo will be nearly 2 so still doesn't quite understand the concept of Santa yet but I am hoping he will be a bit more interested in presents this year. I am not sure what we are doing with Robs dad and his stepmum but I am sure we will have a late Christmas planned. We always get new pjs and watch a film Christmas Eve so I am guessing will we be doing that and we are going to go to my grandparents Christmas Eve to do present swapping to take a bit of pressure off Christmas Day. This is the first Christmas without my little dog Simba and she used to LOVE helping people open presents so that is going to be super difficult. Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc) Nope I am happy to receive anything.
I love SS! I missed it one year and just total regrets!!
Your name: Stormie Your email: email@example.com Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): I love color combinations paired together like black & red, blue & green, etc. I'm pretty fond of most colors & styles actually. haha. I do like things that match a kiddo in my family though. I love when things match! Some things you love: Anything creepy, aliens, spacey stuff, Harry Potter, fantasy stuff, mermaids, anything aquatic, rainbows, dragons, etc. my family says a lot about me. hahaha. Some things you like on babyz: Heavy themes! I also love ombre hair. Hair with bangs is a must for me & I tend to like pigtails or longer styles, I think. I also love tattoos of any kind, anywhere! Some things you dislike on babyz: Missing limbs, smaller babyz, baldness, plain Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: On Christmas Eve, we always visit my husband's aunts & uncles & his cousins to have a potluck with non-traditional Christmas food, then we play Bingo for presents that are $1-$5 in the middle until there are no more presents left! Then we head to my parent's house on Christmas as of late and we open presents in the morning and do a huge dinner similar to Thanksgiving. In the past, and I would probably do so in the future, was visit my brother in Seattle, but he's in LA this year & last and I wasn't keen on going to LA as I'm not fond of the area. lol We would do a lot of non-traditional things together. Go out to eat, sight see, play video games, etc. Our dinner was some odd pasta with beef, sauce, and veggies. We did it twice in a row. Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? I'm happy with anything honestly and grateful! I probably wouldn't be so keen on graphics or caps though because I prefer to make my own and I don't think I need more caps.
This seems like so much fun! I hope it's okay that I join .
Your name: Corinne Your email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): Okay I'm good with basically everything but my favourite colour is yellow! I just love it. It reminds me of happy times and sunflowers.
Some things you love: Sunflowers! haha. Or any other flowers or hmm... succulents! Succulents are adorable to me. I also love books. I love reading; mainly fantasy or romance. I love animals too, dogs and cats! I have a chihuahua so I love her too! Haha sorry if I'm confusing!
Some things you like on babyz: Lots of freckles, rosie cheeks, bushy eyebrows.
Some things you dislike on babyz: Bright eyes, un-natural skin tones.
Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: I usually spend it with my family. My mum, my siblings, etc. We go out to eat at a restaurant for the evening. But this year for Christmas it's going to be the first time that I don't do that since I moved in with my fiance, and he's got the day off work. We're going to spend it together. It's going to feel weird, but I think it'll be great .
Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc): Nope not really. Anything's fine! I'm easily impressed haha.
Making up for missing last yrs festivities while recovering from surgery .... Your name: cheryl Your email: email@example.com Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): colors are anything pastel, specifically violets, blues, pinks, yellows, minty greens (the occasional bright colors work too) ... patterns - rainbows, stripes, chevron, dots, hearts, stars .... prefer shorter hair styles and white or tanned skin tones for my kiddiez (my family is pretty much white-bread w/a few kidz on the darker side!) As for clothing, I'm partial to the mini dresses diaper combo, overallls + straps (long and short), the lowrise tutu, t-shirts and or tube tops, tights and those cute long socks that come over the babez knees (can't think of the name), and the sweatband type headbands w/ cute embeleshments... also, since half my kidz are boyz, anything appropriate for them even tho most don't mind wearing dresses, tutus and the like. Some things you love: animals (giraffes, guinea pigs-we have 3, chameleons, puppies, bunnies) reading, DISNEY! (animations and real-life based), Harry Potter (Ravenclaw!), Star Trek (but NOT the original series), photoshoots (just can't get some pageant poses outta my kidz), mixing up clothing patterns/colors Some things you like on babyz: lighter colors for eyes / red or blonde or light brown hair or lighter un-natural colors / curly hair-dos/ ombre hair / freckles / pale rosies / cutesie tattoos and-or themes / firefly eyes / shorter hair styles on girlz, slightly longer for boyz / baby or child-ish hair styles (not styles appropriate for a teen or older) Some things you dislike on babyz: dark colors for anything (specifically browns or blacks or dark neons, if that makes sense), asian skin tones (sorry, just not a favorite), hairstyles that don't look natural around the babyz ears or on the back of their heads - un-natural hair lines Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: honestly, since my mom passed it's just me and Gayle and we really don't do much of anything special. I like watching all the holiday movies and we both enjoy checking everyone's light displays but not much else. We usually pick a pricey/fancy restaurant, get dressed up and have a nice leisurely dinner on either Christmas Eve or Christmas day. As for gifting, it's an ongoing thing with us, so nothing is specific to Christmas but Gayle has been known to surprise me and I her sometimes. Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? I'm open to and grateful for anything!
Last Edit: Dec 5, 2019 7:10:59 GMT by cheryl ツ: added a few items I'd forgotten about before
Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): I like pastel colors that are cute but also slightly eerie, like pale lilacs or minty greens. But bold colors are also cool, like orange or yellow. I love fluffy sweaters, fluffy socks and overalls. I also love space themes and techy/geeky stuff. And cowboys, lol! Or Japanese and Chinese things. I don't have a baby girl yet, so even though I like to dress Dox with slightly girly things, I'm currently not very interested in things like bows, tutus and dresses, haha.
Some things you like on babyz: anything unnatural or fantastical!
Some things you dislike on babyz: dark eyelashes. And though I like it on other user's babyz, I personally don't really identify with babyz that are white, blond-haired and blue-eyed.
Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: My mom and I always play Gene Autry's Christmas Cowboy album nonstop, since we love old country music. Then we decorate our tree with all the Chinese decorations from my childhood, as I grew up in Chinatown. And finally we make a bûche de Noel, because we lived in France for half of my life. There's a lot of different cultures in our X-Mas ;^)
Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? Anything you feel like will make me happy!
yayyy so glad there's interest in this bc i really love our secret santa every year <3 just here dropping my own lil form off!
Your name: lacey Your email: firstname.lastname@example.org Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): i really love all colors honestly (rainbow is the best color) but my favorites currently are bubblegum pink, cotton candy blue, pastel lavender-y purple, and light succulent green. i also love anything yellow/black together since that's hufflepuff colors. for patterns i just love cute whimsical things and just anything bright and cheerful and colorful. also, glitter. if you're really curious about my aesthetic you can check out my instagram as it's probably the best representation of me out there rofl Some things you love: disney, pokemon (especially cute fairyish ones), cute things, pretty instagram art, cats, rainbows, harry potter/hufflepuff, sweets/candy/desserts, powerpuff girls, life is strange, animal crossing, sims… idk other things too but those are the things i can think of right now lmao. Some things you like on babyz: firefly eyes, long/light eyelashes, freckles/rosies, birthmarks, themed babyz, cute/whimsicalness idk Some things you dislike on babyz: unthemed/plain babyz, black pupils, dark/short eyelashes, hairstyles/themes i already have in my family Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: we celebrate christmas and it’s always always primarily about family and our traditions. my mom has all these little traditions that she would do with me since i was a little girl like putting out the milk and cookies for santa with a carrot for rudolph, holding a christmas cookie swap with our family, and on christmas eve while i was asleep she would always put my stocking on my bedroom door so when i woke up early all excited i could open those and not wake up anyone else lmao. then on christmas morning my cousin noelle, my aunt and uncle, and my nana would all come over and open presents together and then spend time together until dinner. sometimes they would even sleep over so we could wake up together on christmas morning. since we moved to north carolina we don’t get to spend christmas with them every year but they are coming to visit and spending christmas week with us this year which is going to be super special. i’m going to be sleeping over my parent’s house on christmas eve so noelle and i can sleep in the living room by the tree and wake up together just like we used to. i’m so excited i love christmas :’) Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get?: honestly i’d be so happy and grateful for anything i am lucky enough to receive!! i also wanted to mention since i know we have a lot of newer members from the PC, i would 100% love and appreciate a petz hexie as well if that's what you're more comfortable with! i've been trying to collect hexed petz to match my babyz and i'd specifically love one for andi, poppy, stella, or tia. i currently have petz 5 :)
I hope it's ok that I enter, I've been going back and forth on if I should! I just hope whoever is paired with me isn't too let down!
Your name: Amanda Your email: email@example.com Your favorite color(s), pattern(s), or style(s): I think neon green and highlighter yellow are my favorites, but really I'm drawn to anything and everything made with good taste. Some things you love:Those round glasses everywhere, pjs and onesies, cute small detail items that can be added to outfits, any hexed toys (especially things for your house), Petz, calico cats, aliens, cacti and plants, the dark crystal, dragons, sailor moon, bulma briefs, pokemon (nidorans, bulbasaur line, zubat/crobat), hedgehogs, dinosaurs, bunnies and bears, LOTR, GOT, star wars but not disney star wars Some things you like on babyz: I'd prefer not to get a baby actually! I'd love clothes, toys, scenes, hexing or posing help or anything else you can think of that I can just use for Atlas. Some things you dislike on babyz: - Tell us a little bit about how you celebrate the holidays: I'm scaling way back on christmas this year for money reasons, but I always decorate, usually spend weeks planning everyone's gifts, and love to drink eggnog by the fireplace surrounded by blinky lights Is there any type of gift you would prefer not to get? (eg. a baby if you're not adopting currently or graphics if you prefer to make your own, etc) I'd prefer not to get a new baby as a gift, but anything else I'd love.
as for what I can offer, if it helps in pairing: I can hex toys and i'm sure I can figure out clothes (I've learned in petz, I just need to learn the translation to babyz), and I can definitely offer petz gifts (bred or hexed) if anyone is agreeable!
