    Thanks Secret Pal! I'll be busy this weekend making donuts, munching on candy, and my husband will love the Hot spices! The Halloween bag with stickers and tatoos will be a hit with my kids at school. Thanks again!

    I'm working on getting a 2nd package together for my pal. With the end of first quarter this week, I'm a little behind. Hopefully I'll get it out soon though! :)

    I went all out for my secret pal last month, and it's the 19th of Oct. and I still have not heard from the person who "has" me.

    If you are in the same situation as me, what have you done? Or, anyone else (that has received something) what would you do IF this happened to you?

    I would keep being great to your own pal, but I do think the organizer should take note of who is slacking off and maybe that person should be paired up with someone else who slacked off if they choose to play again next time. I am almost set to send off my next package to my pal :)

    Maybe everyone who has signed up should post if they have:
    a. sent to their secret pal yet
    b. received anything

    I'll start -
    a. I've sent a couple of packages to my secret pal and have a card ready to mail.

    b. I've gotten one great package from my pal.

    I have sent three things to my secret pal via postal service: one package in September, one smaller package in October, and I have just sent something else to my SP. That person should be receiving it in the next few days.


    I have received one package (and I will add that it was a very nice package and I loved it) in September from my secret pal since we've started.

    I believe we were doing this until the end of the year. So the secret pals should probably be revealed in December.

    The person we send to does not have us right? I sent to the person I was assigned, and received some wonderful stuff from whoever has me.

    I'm getting my third package ready to send out. I don't know if my SP ever received her Halloween package, but I'm taking a chance and sending out another one.

    Could we all post on here IMMEDIATELY, when we receive something? It would help general peace of mind.
