    I am glad everyone is enjoying their gifts. SwOceanGal why don't you try reading their past messages to get an example of what they MIGHT like. I would go with a gift card for this time around if you truly dont know. Hope you get insight soon.

    That is exactly what I did. I tried to atoz stalk them and got an idea for where to get the GC for- hope my secret buddy likes it!

    LOL @ atoz stalking...I did that myself, I wanted extra information and it helped a bit.

    My package was on the porch when I got back from running errands earlier. I love the gift card (it's from one of my favorite places - now to just decide what to buy, what to buy) Thanks SP :)

    Unless they can match your real name with your a-z name, your fine. Quick-delete your post and then I'll delete mine so they won't read that you did that!

    :( Well, maybe your SP mailed it on the 20th and you will get your package tomorrow. I think maybe since so many people mailed their packages so earlier it made it harder for those that waited until the 20th to mail their packages.

    Fingers crossed that you'll have a package waiting for you tomorrow:)

    Me too Jem. Keep in mind there was a weekend in there so the packages may take a couple extra days.

    I think it also depends on where you're mailing from. It could take 2 days or it could take 7 days for your package to arrive! I always seem to get the pal farthest away LOL

    I haven't received my package yet but I also know that my SP hasn't received theirs either. I mailed it on the 20th and they said it may take up to 7 days to arrive.

(I stopped home earlier for a snack before the gym right as the UPS man pulled up to my curb so I grabbed the box and opened it as I sat in the parking lot waiting to pick up dh!)

    I did mail mine out late, too- I mailed it on Sat- so it is coming! Sorry to be late.

    I did however receive mine and I love the art supplies for my K class! So Great! I especially love the pumpkin pin and the homemade soap with a prize inside! The kids are going to love it! I am going to bring it in on Friday and wear the pin that day too! Cute! Thanks!

    So, am I the only one who hasn't received an October gift?:(

    I think this will be the last time I'm doing Secret Pal. It is the 2nd time in the row that my SP didn't participate.

    No I don't think there was a mix-up. My SP asked me a question at the beginning of October, so I know that I was paired up with someone.

    Whats your name on Elfster? If you dont mind me asking. I am sorry you haven't received anything.

    I think everyone needs to log on to Elfster once in a while, I've asked questions and they aren't being answered. The next deadline is coming up soon.

    Hope you get something soon!:hugs:

    If someone asks me a question, I get an e-mail telling me to log into Elfster to answer the question. I think it's a pretty good system if people are at least checking their email (don't forget your SPAM BOX!).

    I've checked Elfster. The last contact my SP had with me was on Oct. 4th. I think I responded to their question a week later.

    The last set of gifts in this round are to go out by Dec. 20th, so a new one could be started in January.

    I got mine- it was fabulous! My kids really love using the arts and crafts to add to their writing at the writing center! Thanks SP!!!!
