A ReMinDeR

for anyone who hasn't sent an email of THANKS to your partner... please do it today... yes right now.
I know things get hectic over Christmas and New Year... and emails can be forgotten or perhaps you thought you had sent one~ but didn't... but you need to sit down now and type.

Ho Ho's Christmas EvE

I would like to wish all my wonderful ELvEs the happiest of times this Christmas.
I hope 2014 brings good health & creativity to your lives.

I want to THANK Sharon once again for being an AnGeL... unfortunately I had ONE swapper let down.
There is one other swapper who is away and I cannot make contact with another but as these two were partners perhaps something went wrong between them. I'm in the dark about this situation for now.
But thankfully every one else honoured their pledge and considering the numbers ... 83 from 86 of you... well... that's pretty good I think. I commend you on your wonderful and thoughtful gifts... you really did a marvellous job of spreading some good will and cheer... and for this I say THANK YOU to each and every one of you!
Merry Christmas...
I hope to see you all again in 2014...

Tomorrow is...

Our Opening DaY... if you want it to be that is!
Of course tomorrow here in Australia is only the day before in other parts of the world... so their opening day is the day after... WOW that's very confusing... BUT FUN... no matter when we get to open our gifts!

Just sit back and think about this...
All the hours of planning... then the stitching, sewing, quilting, knitting etc... time spent beautifully wrapping... writing personal cards... packing up... mailing off...
puff... gone in 60 seconds... 
once the "opening fever" takes hold... lol... but soooo worth it!

Merry Christmas ALL... 
and EnJoY tomorrow.

I KnoW an AnGeL

who goes by the name of Sharon.
This AnGeL is making sure a certain swapper (who shall remain nameless for now) doesn't miss out on receiving her swap gifts this Christmas...
I'm pretty sure her partner has gone AWOL.!
THANK YOU so very much Sharon...
you are ALwaYs so very generous!
