1  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: Return of the Secret Santa Wishlist Swap! on: January 16, 2018 03:58:15 PM
I AM SO SORRY Y'ALL!! Mom and sis went homeless cuz of fires so we're trying to situate them (lucky that's mostly been solved), then we've had massive flooding and whole highways are blocked off so work has been nuts! Managers on vacation/people calling in sick has us short staffed. Lastly I don't have a car so getting to the post office with 3-4 boxes is a bit of a struggle :X To top it off, construction across the street has been lagging my internet.

It's a mess  Cheesy


 I am eternally sorry you've been waiting on me this whole time. Calluna I hope you're okay and you don't have to ferry it anywhere!

I also want to thank everyone for my goodies! I'd hug every single one of you and give you extravagant chocolates as return gifts if I could <3 Best first Christmas ever!

So very perfect that I should post under you Miss B  Wink

I decided to do a 12 days of Christmas present opening instead of the whole shebang on one day. After two birthday fiascoes (also the first time celebrating those this year) in which my kids were disappointed with the dozens of gifts they got (they were super overwhelmed), I thought that stretching it out might be a better plan. It's worked beautifully so far. But not expecting so much for myself it had become apparent I needed to start opening gifts along with them and the first package I grabbed was from this swap!

I definitely know who sent this but I think I would have known even if she didn't give a major hint. The perfect crochet is hard to miss and she is extremely generous  Kiss  Kiss So cool that you snuck behind my back and went in cahoots with the organizer  Cheesy I'll be uploading pictures shortly. I am SO VERY GRATEFUL for my gifts! My old towels are 12 years old  Roll Eyes They're rather ratty, lol.

Apologies for being incommunicato. It wasn't by choice. I am horribly late sending but I have a trip planned for the Post Office tomorrow. Up hill. Through the smoke and ash. Both ways  Cheesy Nah just kidding. It's not uphill. The ground is mostly flat.

I got a surprise visit from our esteemed organizer yesterday!  Shocked She's adorable and amazing and we're planning on a longer visit when our cities aren't on fire. She gave me a large and somewhat fluffy package from some sneaky crafter and I'm DYING to open it---but I'm waiting like a good monkey  Cheesy

Calluna, I hope the fresh warm air will help clear your lungs! Have a great time on vacation and thank you for the surprise visit <3 Thank you as well to you wonderful crafters. Your cheer and positivity go a long way toward soothing a ruffled soul :,)

I cannot say how much the care and well wishes have lifted my spirits from all you wonderful crafters. It really touched my heart to see <3 Thank you all so much and thanks to our wonderful Calluna for the updating! My family and I luckily did not have to evacuate our home but the fire came close to us--within half a mile. Probably should have evac'd but there was grid locked traffic for HOURS.

The sky is thick with smoke and it's raining ash. Also, our water supply has been contaminated and the sun/moon have an angry red glow. The kids were a little freaked at first, seeing the flames over the hill. But all in all we are safe and accounted for. I am still crafting away for a few as-of-yet unclaimed victims---I mean lucky crafters---cuz, ya know, what else is there to do in time of crisis except Neflix and craft?!  Grin

Thanks again everyone. I hope all the rest of you are faring well  Smiley Kiss

I also received a package from Bubbles!  Shocked It must be a nom de plume for SANTA  Cheesy I opened the card because I couldn't help myself for a peek and I got the first hand made ornament for my very first Christmas tree! And I got some woodland felt inchies I immediately fell in love with. My first inchies too!! I'm trying to find a way to display them prominently  Cheesy Maybe start a bunting or add them to some cards and tape them to my wall. I will set them in the gallery as soon as there's sunlight here.

So fast!! Only two claims with grand plans for more. I can probably bang out a few more and bother calluna for addresses at the last minute  Cheesy
