I am truly overwhelmed by the very generous nature of bloggers... some being swappers (in this swap) and some non swappers too. If you read yesterdays post you would know that one of the participants was let down this year... so an amazing number... yes, MaNY MaNY bloggers... volunteered to act as an elf for Carol.
If Carol still wants to play... I know for certain that she will open a sack/stocking/tote full of gifts at Christmas time.
I think Carol is away over this long weekend... so she won't know of the very generous ladies who have left comments and emails. I'll keep you up-to-date!
Thanks ladies... you are simply AMaZinG!

As swap mama you have to make some hard decisions...
so it is with regret that I am removing Kylie from this swap. I haven't been able to make contact with Kylie and neither has her partner for many months. I don't know if there are circumstances that has prevented Kylie from fulfilling her commitments or not but time is marching on and it's just not fair to her partner Carol to continue any longer.
I have apologised to Carol and feel very sad that this has happened to such a nice lady!
