This elfs goodie box went out Tuesday.
But alicat518, I flunked Wrapping in Elf school. Nearly was thrown out of elf school. So alas the box is full of unwrapped goodies, so feel free to open and enjoy.
There is still a box to go, but there seems to be some technical Problem with shipping to the pole. So never fear I am on it!!!
Oh I'm so sad!!! Snicklefritzg's package was returned today saying "No Such Number!!" Snicklefritzg - I sent you a PM - hopefully we can get this straightened out so that the sleigh will know where to head - Rudolf is getting tired, lol.
Well I had a bit of a hard time remembering my password! But here I am!
Digit2009 should have received at least one part of her gift already. I haven't revealed who I am yet... as there is more to come!
I am also looking forward to a surprise from my own elf. I know s/he's been busy... it makes going to the post office every day a little more fun, knowing there just *might* be something for me (other than bills...!)
Shayaalliard, sorry to be such a stealth elf. This month is beyond crazy and I thought originally we had until December 7th! I am getting your gifts assembled, they may arrive in more than one package.
Wrapping may get.... interesting, given what your gifts are so far.
Your Stealth Elf has packed up the sleigh & the box is now FULL, of surprises we elfs hope will be pleasing to you. So in a week or so at your front porch, should be a simple brown box of Christmas Joy for you. Happy Holidays from Stealth Elf & Crew....
fair warning, I'm breaking the rules! I have NO intention of sending everything on Dec. 1 !!
I have more than one present/box, and I'm spreading them out so you can enjoy the opening even more!
oh, and it's possible, but not definite, that ONE (or more) may be marked DO NOT OPEN TILL CHRISTMAS, it'll be up to you whether or not YOU break that rule,
And no worries about mailing them out later. In fact, I probably won't send most out to my giftee until the second week of Dec. Of course, they're also only about a 4 hour drive away, so I'm fairly certain the USPS will get it there well before Xmas day.
HOLY COW ELF! TarheelJD, you are AMAZING! I haven't OPENED anything yet (um...that may be happening tonight...not going to lie), but after a truly terrible week, I came home to a HUGE box waiting for me! I dug in and pulled everything out, wrapped so beautifully! I had to sit on the stoop and cry for a second that someone could take so much time and do things so beautifully! After a year of being forgotten and shuffled behind getting everything done for everyone else, that, even BEFORE opening anything, was one of the best gifts one could get the eve of thanksgiving. THANK YOU! (expect a private message once I get things actually opened) Thank you for making my day, week and month, and for your gorgeous wrapping skills! (Which I truly wish I had!)
Oh yay, I am so glad your box of prezzies brightened up an otherwise blah time! I go through those periods sometimes at work when everything is so annoying and draining and before you know it, you have had the month from hell. I am so glad Secret Santa brightened your day and kicked off the holiday seasons right! That is what it is about after all, at least for me.
As for the wrapping, my husband and friends laugh at me a bit, because I am a little obsessive about it!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
