It's TiMe To ANNouNce

YiPPee... Today is the Day... 
I realise that some ladies still may NOT have received their packages... but hopefully they will arrive in time over the next day or so... So Come on Mr Mailman, get a move on...

I know some of you have opted to open your gifts on a dedicated date... and some want to wait until Christmas... and of course that is perfectly OK... but some of us just simply cannot wait...lol.

But it's very disappointing that some ladies will miss out on opening day that they would love to be a part of and are unable to do so... and to those, I sincerely apologise. I know sometimes "things" happen that simply cannot be avoided... these we all understand... but just to be late... well it's really not good enough is it. Some I cannot even contact! 
I published the commitment that was needed to this swap at the start and I feel that there was ample time to get the gifts organised, wrapped and sent. So WHY does this happen?
I think these ladies will have to be placed on the naughty list!
To ALL the other ladies (all 81 of them)... I say
WELL DONE!

Now onto more pleasant words... Drum roll please...
Opening Day is...Thursday, December
I will place a link on this blog on Friday Dec 20... for you to link your blog... so that we can all come over for a visit and see YOUR gifts. I hope YOU will join in!

I wish you all a HaPPy time opening GifTs.

  4. I have two extra gifts Cheryll. I could post off to one or more of the non recipients so that they at least have one gift to open. The o/s ones won't get there in time, although I am happy to send o/s.

  5. Thank you so much for this swap, Cheryll. My partner and I have received our swap parcels and have been in touch with each other several times, which is so nice. I'm sorry for those who are missing out and hope that they will have something to celebrate on Thursday.

  11. Looking forward to opening day but I am waiting until Xmas day. Hope the parcels arrive in time. Nothing worse then being part if a swap and nit getting the parcel. It is horrible. Let me know if
