Thank you, Drayia. You picked out the perfect things for me. I am going to update wish list today. (add and remove). I DO love the essential glue pad. It makes glittering such a breeze... just stamp using the glue pad and then apply the glitter. I saw this technique at a scrap store workshop. I am going to sign up for the next swap. have a lovely day ladies.

Am I now the only one who hasn't received anything? I know my partner has until the 13th so I am not giving up hope. And I believe the saying - save the last for best!!!!

I think Lori is still waiting as well. Be patient. look at Sassie she was all bent out of shape looking for her package and making a deal with the mail person to beep when she gets a package.

Did everone see the deal today 12% on all card making supplies. Why don't they have deals like that when we are buying for our pals. I think I may shop anyways.

Sassie I think she meant that is a joking friendly kind of way. Sort of how we are like kids told not to get in the cookie jar but still sneak and get one.
Its so easy to take things out of context and the wrong way on the internet. We are all friends here.
I have swapped with Pam forever and isn't mean.

shoot I am one that is more prone to be ornery and pissy on occasion. But thats because I am an emotional crab(cancer sign), I am a jokster too.

Please don't think that she meant anything by it hun. She was probably just meaning that we all get impatient for our goodies and we are like kids having to wait for xmas morning, and we want them all on xmas eve. You get my analogies.

Please ladies lets all play nice and realize that things can be taken out of context....hugs and kisses.

Getting the survey off to Pam for next round. I will be very excited to shop again. Joy to all here as we experience the freedoms that this day reminds us of. I am making a few cards for Operation Write Home today as part of my annual "4th" celebration. I make my Thanksgiving cards at this time of year for them. Seems logical in my weird way of thinking.

So I see something was said about me then deleted??? So I will assume it was not very nice.

If I offended someone I apologize. I was just repeating what that person put in a previous post. Tonya, thank you for going to bat for me, I appreciate it. I have never said anything in any post that would make someone upset or not wanting me in their swap. Like I said this is a drama/stress free swap. I wish the person who posted something about me would have left it up for me to see. If I had something to say MEAN you would have known in in a PM. But I don't know anyone personally on here to make rude comments about. If this person is not happy with me they do not have be in this swap. Maybe I will just hand this swap over to someone to run.

Maybe I should have put LOL at the end of my post. So there be it....

Pam.. your name says it all ANGEL. You have done a spectacular job of running this swap. You always keep track of who has sent and received and provide first rate service when someone does not follow through on their end. I appreciate all you do for everyone who loves being part of this swap. Maybe sometime we all need to make you the recipient of our swap packages! Hoping your day has joy and blessings in it.

I received a package in the mail Friday but cant figure out who its from or if it is from this swap. Its pp and emblishments from the Prima Fairy Bella collection sent direct from sb.com I believe. I want to thank my pal if it was sent by her. That paper is so much nicer IRL, LOVE it.



Glad you liked them Ms. Drayia! And not it wasn't from SB.com since the cost of shipping to Canada was thru the roof...:(. I told those people to post a note of who sent it to you. Anyway, my second and third package are on the way so please be in the lookout!!



GIGIGI30 did you send me a hummingbird feeder?? I received one in the mail and it said Gift but no name on the invoice. I NEED to get a potter of flowers now and put it in. I have been putting of getting a nice one now I have a reason to. Cant wait to fill up the feeder and watch for Hummingbirds!

No what I said about you wasnt "not nice" I said I was hurt by your "bent out of shape comment" I dont feel i was bent out of shape, I was worring about my saftey going out daily.

Then I deleted the rest because I knew "this" would again happen. because I aired I was upset I was "being mean to you" I just wanted to forget I mentioned you hurt my feelings .... and NOT fight.

No need to leave your own swap. I wasnt bad mouthing you. I love to joke around & have fun, I just felt a little sensitive about that comment you made is all. No reason to read more or less into this pretend I didnt say anything

Got out in this 105+ degree heat today & went to Hobby Lobby. I can't even begin to say how great it is that I don't have to drive out-of-town anymore to shop. We had nothing like this in my city until the HL opened in early May. I found some good buys ! To Pam, darlin you don't go anywhere ! I have been in some kind of card swap with you since I joined the forum in 2008 & have been in this one since last Sep. or Oct. I really enjoy this with you ladies & not once has anyone ever said a cross word to me nor me them. Drama Free is for Me !!!!! Thanks Pam for all you do with this swap & thanks Shania/ Drayia for all you do with the card swap & thanks to all the ladies that have swapped with me . I appreciate the long distance friendships & sharing an art that we all love ! xoxoxo Lori/lori1963

Ohhhhh...i had to read a few post but now I'm up n up...Pam don't leave...you have been an awesome hostess here...you do keep on top of things nicely. Sassie I hope you don't get your feelings hurt anymore...I didn't think you would be offended...really iwhen i read ...i thought you would be laughing...especially you since you like to kid around and joke around...that's how i saw it...like a poke in the tummy...a friendly...comment...

Well i hope everyone is ok...this swap has been wonderful...

I also love the MOTM swap...member of the month...a member is chosen (SASSIE is the MOTM now)...and the others shop and send happy packages to that person...then the following month someone else is chosen...your name is kept tracked of and your name is put in according to how many times u have sent in...I'm keeping my fingers crossed...lol

Well what she said put in bad taste in my mouth a well. If you have a problem with me you PM don't broadcast it on her. Others read and they also are hurt and then I hear from them in a PM.

Listen I have enough stress in my life I come on here to get away from it all. I do not easily forgive and I will never forget. Unfortunately some people in my life have not seen how badly they have hurt me and don't relaize I have feeling and they should apologize. I am sick of apologizing so I don't anymore. My BFF hasn't got it yet, even after I have extremely cooled it with her. No more every day calls and textes, even stopped dining with them weekly. This has nothing to do with you Sassie. Just letting you know my life has been turned upside down and sideways recently and I do not need more than I can handle. Even thou they say God gives you what you can handle He needs to start giving some to someone else.

So lets go forward. I had a few ladies pick their pals and if I had their survey I gave it to the pal. I already sent my package to my pal she she get it anyday. I try every month to give you someone different so you don't get the same person all the time. Its hard but I do it. Thank goodness for excel.

Ms. Pam,

I may be the newest member on this swap and the forum but all I can say is, and if make you feel any better, I HAVE NOT felt any mistreatment from you or anyone else in here. From the beginning it has been very welcoming here by everyone and I've developed some sort of friendship with everyone I come across. No judgement on my end but it's a shame that something that should be entertaining and a gathering place for all of us to enjoy and share our hobbies have to come to this. No need for you to leave or Ms. Sassie to feel that way, let's just all hang in there and make the best out of this.

I thought I sent you my survey for #2 but it may be "operator error" on my part if it didn't come through. Please let me know if you did or did not get it so I can follow up. I updated my wishlist since Drayia was so thoughtful in picking out things for me from the last round. Blessings to you on this day.

Cool ladies. Lets get to swapping and shopping. But since the weather has been so hot lately ladies. Please shop online, early morning or later in the evening, when the sun is not at its fullest. This heat is nuts for everyone.

I plan to shop for my buddy next week. I can't wait too. I have been under the weather this week and look forward to shopping and spoiling soon.

Your such a charm Ellen! I wish no one would have ever flaked on you, that breaks my heart. Your so kind & generous, you desever to be as spoiled as I was!!

I am still very very greatful for my package! Never have I recieved such a wonderful gift from a SS. Pam treated me so very well its still warms my heart to see people give as I do with out question or reason. Pam really went above & beyond what she had to do. I believe that is sheer kindness - and I will never ever forget it. Again Pam, I thank you for treating me so well in this swap.
I to have always been flaked on, or shorted but still I come back to Secret Swaps because I truley do LOVE spoiling deserving people. Ellen I need to gain your pholophsy about it - because I dont join to recieve (although I expect it IN swaps ONLY) If I joined only to recieve I'd buy my own stuff so I know I wouldnt be disapointed.

I do apperciate everyones chat here this swap also! You made me laugh at times so hard I cryed. I loved that part of this swap, so thanks to you ladys also!

After Ellen gets her package I will sign off. I am hanging in for her because I cant wait to see what she gets spoiled with!!!

got about 3 ppl in mind for true secret spoil's for the next couple month not via a swap but just because they deserve a pick me up I just need to get over this finacial hump that just attacked me LOL! I think thats what I'll do from now on, just RAK - and if I get a RAK then I know its a true one, not because they had to (Sorry ladys just blabbering, kinda lonley today!)

Pam, Nothing beats my husbands. Which in hind sight was hysterical for everyone. We were laying on the beach when he turned to me and aske me for a wet towel. And when I looked at him it was everything I could do not to laugh and just wet a towel and give it to him. A seagull has pooped in his eye. He got a terrible infection from it but we still laugh about it.

The big joke for us is when we go to the beach we ask him if he wants an umbrella, goggles, anything.

We don't go often since a seagull took a sandwich out of my sons hand the last time. I figure it is my turn for them to get me. I'll pass. lol.

It is my understanding that the b-day card is optional. I added a couple etxra goodies b/c I am not confident in my card making yet.

Ellen... I just subscribed to your youtube channel! I was fascinated to hear that your daughter has such an unusual talent at the circus... my goodness. I hope you created a very specially decorated bandaid container. If your secret pal is the lady who you guessed... I am sure she will come through for you. Wedding time is such a busy time. Are you in for the next round?

Pink, great idea on the bandaid container. I wish I had a metal conatiner like they used to sell. About signing up here for a 2nd swap - not until I receive my goodies. Many thanks for becoming a subscriber :-) I'm not exactly like everyone else so I know I don't appeal to anyone who doesn't have a sense of humor. Have a great weekend and stay cool!!

Hey Ellen. I know the ones they used to sell was a little wider and flatter, but this may be good for it.

Thanks Ms. Pebbles but it's too big. The bandaid tins were about 2 1/2 x 4". It would have to be small enuf to fit into her purse.

Gigigi, many many thanks! I am now watching 4 band aid tins on ebay. Hopefully, I will win one and then I plan to alter it using Le Cirque paper and fill it with band aids for the daughter. Again, thank you for the suggestion. I should have realised that one can find everything on ebay :-)

Evil bay is one of my favorite places to shop online....after SB.com of course. If you can't find it there is because doesn't exist!

I just got something from Fl (postage due) but I don'think it is from my partner because it's nothing from my wish list nor anything from my survey. Did my partner send me a very old mike's $1.00 mary englebrett cherry chipboard, some stickers (which I said I didn't want on my survey), some old mm frames from the dollar store, some jewelry jump rings and some tiny punches? I hope not :-( because I thought we were to spend minimum $10. Please tell me this isn't what I have waited until the last day for. :-)

If you don't get one on ebay let me know. The dollar store near my house has had the bandaid tins I can keep an eye out for them and when they have them pick one up and mail it to you.

Good morning ladies....names will be posted soon. I am sitting in some hot weather here in Myrtle Beach SC....Sorry i didn't get names off as promised ran into a few business snags that needed my attention...It was $100K deal and I didn't want it to go south. It finally all worked out yesterday while I arrives in SC.

Please ladies update survey and remember no used items. Have more than 30 items. Working on names now....

I won't be doing this swap again and I am very disappointed in what I received. I am still shaking my head in disbelief - JEWELRY JUMP RINGS? Old stickers which are the ONE thing I said in the survey that I hated. MM frames that I bought at the dollar store over 2 years ago? I spent $25 on my partner (all new stuff)and although I didn't expect anyone to spend that much I certainly expected to receive at least one thing off my wish list or one thing off my survey. Maybe next time anyone who gets my partner will get a better package. And, they won't have to pay for postage as I did!

I am sorry that you were disappointed in your pacakge. I went to check out your wish list and it was empty. I have never gotten a package I was not happy with.

This is just awful - I am in a state of shock. Each other SS I have ever been in the hostess fix's problems in swaps (Such as this) Not out of her own pocket but finding an angel for her. Which ive offered to do often but each PM was simply deleted with never a responce (so rude)

To the trash sending person, Karma is all I can say for you. The next time your screwed over in a Secret Swap dont cry about it, or ask yourself "why" you already know why ....

Ellen is a great person, I see no reason why anyone would want to send her trash then make her pay for it?? Are you serious right now!!!

Shame on you Pam for not caring for ALL your swappers new or old.

Pam you couldn't even keep your story straight. You told Ellen here, her package was mailed like 2 times before it actually was. You think its ok for this "woman" to mail a good person trash AND make her pay for it to come to her house??

You make no sense, youd rather keep someone like her in your swap. Then good people like Ellen & I ...

WOW...this is way too much!

Ellen, I truly am sorry that you are that unhappy with your package and wish you the best in your next secret sister swap if you are ever to join another one.

Laura, imo, Pam is not to blame for anyone not sending their package out when they say they will and she has many times in the past angeled multiple spots when being flaked on. We have never (since I've been apart of it) had anyone to be that upset with their package before and I wouldn't expect the hostess to angel because of that. I myself have had a similar package but I ended up using most of the items somewhere down the line. But again, that's just me.

Pam, please continue to enjoy your getaway and get enough tan for me too! I have my partners name and I already have my cart loaded!

Pam has been an excellent hostess for this swap. As Ms. Pebbles stated, it's not her fault that a package received by someone was not appreciated. I have received many packages for this swap. Some may have included more items than others, but I have always appreciated what I got. I would never hurt someone's feelings by trash talking what they bought. I agree that this swap has become much more than a $10.00 swap and most of us send a lot more, however, the requirement is to spend at least $10.00. As long as someone spends that much, there really shouldn't be any complaining. And, it's my experience that it all evens out in the end. Please let's keep this swap fun and drama free. Thanks Pam for my pal. I can start shopping for her.
