I think my SS bailed still nothing.


Don't worry :) I have elves taking care of you. But you are right, your SS is missing.

Received my package over a week ago and have finally gotten pictures uploaded and I see I didn't get them sized correctly. In the package was an angel, a soft pretty blue bag with Angel written on it, a prejtty box that I can use the lid as a phote frame and inside the box was a snowman ornament, and a lighted ornament with a nativity scene inside.

Thank you so much but I couldn't read the name (looked like it was smeared with maybe water).

Got my ornament today.:D Thank you so much. There were two Hallmark ornaments one was a wreath with "Feliz Navidad 2012" and the other was a measuring cup ornament. They are so cute. There were two recipes also hiding in the card one for blueberry pie and the other for peanut butter fudge. Thank you so much. I will post pictures later.

Didn't receive anything from my SS. Hopefully it'll arrive before I leave for vacation. If not, no big deal. It was a blessing to bless someone with theirs.

Thank you SS. After doing some hunting down of the package, the desk clerk had forgotten to inform me that a package was here for me:g_think: I love my gift! I got some of my favorite candy-Laffy Taffy filled in a cup; a holiday throw- kitchen towel and mitt; brownie mix kit; cozy socks; and coloring books, crayons, and hot wheel cars for my boys. Thanks so much!!!

Yay!!! Based on postings and me checking the tracking numbers, all SS's except 1 has received. Neither the sender or receiver of the 1 SS in question has been online in 3 weeks so I'm gonna quit worrying about that one. As for OE, all OE's have received except one and that sender gave me an expected ship date, never have me tracking info and hasn't responded to queries over the last few days so an elf is in the works and that one should be on it's way tomorrow!!!!!! As such, I should be able to post names the day after Christmas once everyone has opened (and if the OE elf makes it by then)!! HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND THANK YOU ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Thanks again to Packergurl!

I want to say a HUGE BIG Thank You to my SS :) The gifts were lovely and not at all battered by my shaking earlier to try to decipher what it was. Bella's collar matched perfectly with a leash I bought at PetSmart(maybe?) a few weeks ago and at the time I was bummed because they had OTHER disney collars but not the matching Jack :P

Thank you Diana I opened my SS packages this morning. The movie is one I wanted to see, the socks are too cute as is the ornament. My Dh loves peanuts so your card went over we'll. the candleholder and snuffer are cute (I had to read to figure out the snuffer) and the dark chocolate was perfect. You did a great job. Merry Christmas to you and you family
