Gone Postal, Received, and Thank you's

The purpose of this post is so we have a place to comment and tell everyone that we've mail our Secret Angel Swap boxes to our partners, that we've received our boxes, and to say thank you! I was asked if there was a day to open the boxes and I have to say it would be when you'd like. I know I won't be able to wait!

I have a request: Can you all please list what all you got from your partner? I'm dying to know over here! Also, is there a way to link a picture?

Just wondering!!

Christina, Thank you so much for all the pretties. I've been battling a cold and your box just perked me up. I know I'll make wonderful things with all the goodies. Oh Courtney, my box included...ribbons, buttons, brads, tags, glitter alphabets, metal embellishments and silk flowers. I told you it was all pretty didn't I? Thank you again Christina.

I posted a picture of all of the goodies I received from Debbie on my blog at

kellyswienton.blogspot.com

I'm still as excited about sitting down to play with it as I was last week when I received it. It was as if she knew exactly what I wanted without me telling her, as I have wanted Bella images for so long and STICKLES to play with - I just can't wait!

Shannon Roberts said...

Well, I would like to thank my secret angel; Karrin! I received my package & I seriously cried!! I luv that we all did this & that there are still sweet caring people out there in this world! I needed a pick me up big time! I am so stressed paying two mortgages, getting one house ready for sale in another state, Christmas, 5 kids & LIFE in general! So, Karrin, Thank YOU for all 3 packs of DP, the beautiful rub-ons, the sticker words, coffee, & cocoa!!! I LUV IT ALL!

Sheri said...

Shannon M - you are very welcome!! I'm glad you liked it! I tried to match things to your wish list as best as I could. I'm so pleased you got it as early as you did, I was a little concerned about the postal to Canada. Sorry I'm so late in posting!

Sheri said...

I got my package from Kelly yesterday and all I can say is WOW!! So cool!! I will post a picture on my blog, but it will be missing the yummy pretzels because we already ate them! LOL! Here lovely package included a beautiful card, chocolate covered pretzels, peppermint candies, jumbo paper clips (can't wait to make bookmarks with those! How did you know I've been wanting to???), a journal to alter, some metallic magic mesh, flag decorations, patriotic dp card cuts, 6 (!) pages of self adhesive die cut Christmas shapes and an adorable chipboard Christmas ornament. Wow!!!! I am amazed and ever so thankful!! I can hardly wait to play!! Thank you so very, very much!!

I'am so worried you have not received your package yet.It has been three weeks. I mailed it from Michigan. Please let me know. I check each day to see if you have made a comment about receiving it and still do not see one. Please let Lorie or my self know if you do not have it by mid week. Very concerned. Your Secret Angel.

Dear secret Angel...No I still haven't rec'd anything. I promise,I've been good,lol.It's funny come I make sure I'm home between 11 and noon each day so I don't miss the mailman.Maybe the mailman kept it for himself,lol.
All I can do is wait,but as soon I get it,I will post!! Thanks for the comment! Hugs to you!!,Diane

dd2njoy said...

Lorie can you send me Kims email address. She put it in my card but I sent an email and it wasn't successful.
Thanks,Diane

stampinkimber said...

YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!! I emailed Lorie this morning to tell her I was going to send another package out.
I'm so glad you liked it. It was hard to decide what to do when you don't know someone. I'm glad the bow made it. I loved making it and since then have made alot more. They are so easy and pretty. That sure did take awhile to get to you.
I received mine from an Angel in Canada and hers was here within days.
Have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful 2008!

Kim
