I have officially heard from EVERYONE as of today. Everyone has checked in at least once since Sunday... either on the board or by PM. I'm getting excited about having a flake free swap.

I totally spaced on creating a secret sign on name for the swap, sorry ladies. If I do another one, I'll make sure to have it set up at the begining of the swap.

ScrapAngel4..... I got my package today!!! How adorable! I LOVE IT!!! The colors are absolutely perfect for my wedding theme! You did amazing picking everything out for me! Thank you sooooo much!!! I love the little door knob hanger note box too. That is too cute! Again, thank you sooo much!

I really should have taken the time to get out to office max or staples to get one of these boxes. They are too cute. I know my pal is going to be a bit surprised when she opens her box I sent. Can't wait to see what she thinks of it!

Oh, you said you would explain the handmade... I am assuming that it is a doorknob note holder. Since I am a newly wed.. and it looks like a doorknob holder with a note holder attached. Maybe I could be wrong, since I just went back through the threads and looked. LOL! Regardless... it is beautiful and I love it! I have really enjoyed this swap and getting to know all you ladies!! Thanks Moose for hosting!

Kim, was it me you said you hadn't heard from in 3 weeks? I have been posting a lot on the thread. Sometimes I can be a thread hog. I love to chat! LOL!

I sent mine priority mail on Thursday. I was hoping she would get it Saturday. It is a rather large box, so maybe not.

I got my box today!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH to my secret sister!! I got a box full of goodies that I will certainly put to good use! The boy items are really cute and I love the dog themed brads. These are some that I haven't seen before. The bug stickers are a great idea for a boy page too that I hadn't even thought of. The all boy tag with the denim pocket is just too cute! THANK you again!

Soooo glad you liked everything Connie!! My handmade wasn't all that. Hope you don't mind. I had a lot on my plate the past couple months. But I tried to make up for it in goodies.

Amy I loved everything. I couldn't believe how much stuff you sent. This is just my second swap and I had no idea I would get so much. I feel like maybe I didn't send my Pal enough. I hope that she likes the things I sent her. Thanks again Amy.

Hey, I LOVED EVERYTHING! The embellies you sent were sooo fantastic. I felt spoiled too. I loved the mini album kit.

ok, updated the first page with who is postal and who received. I'll try to check back as often as possible. My computer is having issues at the moment, so I have to sneak over to my dad's while he is at work and use his.

YAY! I am so glad you liked everything! I loved those little bats! Shopping for you was so much fun!! I didn't have a whole lot of purple in my own stash, but now purple has totally caught my eye! I thought Halloween would just be too easy for me since that is also one of my favorite holidays...(that's why I added just a little...shhh.) LOL! I hope you enjoy scrapping with all of it!!!

I did want to apologize for the lateness on the re-mailing. I totally dropped the ball on it...but! I promise, my SS will not be disappointed, as I couldn't find a little box, so I had to get a bigger RUB 1.6 i think...and it BARELY closed! =]

hey ladies, sorry I haven't been on all week. I currently do not have a computer at home right now, so I have to sneak over to my dad's and use his when he is out and about. Glad to see everyone keeping things going though. I will check on those who have not received yet. I was expecting delays for the holidays, no worries. But so far, everyone has been checking in.

Its ok. Thank you for the offer though. I'm glad my secret sister liked what I got her. I emailed the host a few times & she just deleted my messages, but things happen. Maybe the next swap I join will be a little better...I won't be joining swaps with new hosts, that's for sure!

That is a crummy thing to happen. I am in a good swap, which has a 3 monthly turn around, and we will next be taking sign ups towards the end of June - check out Secret Sisters! No one flakes on our swap, and if they try they are immediately kicked off. Our two hostesses are just fantastic.
