    Hi everyone!
    I just wanted to check in and see if everyone received the name of their Secret Pal for Round 2?? I hope it is going to work out using Elfster. I love that I can ask my Secret Pal some questions if need be! Let me know if there's anything I can do to help spread the sunshine. :hugs:

    I didn't know when Round 2 was going to start. I would be interested in doing it if you need another person.

    I want to wish all the secret pals in this second round lots of fun and good luck. I chose not to join....... though I never saw the sign up either........ But if anyone would like me to send something from my location I wouldn't mind. just PM me. (we do this in the secret sister thing I'm doing in another bb, and it kind of throws off your person if they look at post marks)......

    The post about round 2 was in the original Secret Pals posts back in December. Sorry if people missed it! I feel terrible! We are using Elfster.com though so I can't add people late this time because it draws the names and that was done earlier in January.

    I am sure if there are enough people though that another set of people could put a group together if someone wants to take sign-ups. Using Elfster.com makes it so there isn't that much work for the person putting it together. Addresses are there, names are drawn, wish lists are created, and people can ask each other questions anonymously.

    Could we make a rule that important announcements about new things and opportunities be a new post each time? When a post is already there and pretty long, I often stop checking it because it's usually more of the same thing.

    I loved Secret Pals last time and would have been the first to sign up if the announcement had been a separate thing that caught my attention.

    But that's my fault for not checking.

    I got my pal's name, but am still having some trouble accessing elfster; sometimes it won't take my password. I have answered two questions from whoever has my name, but I can't get to the third.
    I am looking forward to this round; have done a little shopping already!

    I've been having fun shopping too. I think the Elfster way is a safe and smart way to go.

    This will be fun! I'm going shopping this weekend.

    Quick question: Do packages need to be sent by Feb. 15th or received by then?

    Thank you secret pal for all of the great bath goodies! I am home sick with strep throat and I was wondering if the package that I sent had been received, and suddenly the UPS truck pulled up. My MIL went out to the truck and then handed me a package. Thank you for making my day!
