    Could I pick my own SP next time:lol: Although I am a little upset that I didn't receive anything (and my SP probably got a gift:mad:), I am glad that I'm the only one this round. I think there were at least 4 of us last time who didn't receive anything.

    Proud, I bet if you were to post your contact info on the Elfster page, at least a few people would step up and become your new SP.....

    Yeah, that totally stinks. I cannot believe it! How rotten! I am sorry Proud. I keep thinking there must be some way that it can be fixed like through elfster or something. That is just insane- so unfair. So make sure your atoz username is posted on elfster so at least it can be fixed the way Caesar suggested.

    I really hate to believe that someone intentionally didn't send you something....especially when this person most likely received something from his/her secret pal. Maybe it slipped your person's mind...and hopefully your person will get right on it now? I'm being hopeful here...

    Happened to me too. The person did send me a message on Elfster telling me that she had to drop out (it was a pretty lame excuse though) but then i was supposed to be re-paired with someone else and never got anything.

    I'm really not expecting anyone (other than my SP) to purchase me something. I'll just miss out on this round. It is just the luck of the draw and I just wasn't lucky this time round. I am making sure that the person I'm buying for, will get hers on time this time round though.

    Has anyone checked elfster lately? It looks different almost like we have completed the exchange? I can't remember who started or is in charge of the exchange, but you might want to check the settings to make sure the exchange is set to last until December. Right now elfster shows that I have "no current exchanges."

    I think you can only enter one exchange date for an exchange, so they entered the first date. I think.

    I went shopping yesterday, but have to get my gift packaged and to the post office (and this is report card week, so it might not get out until the weekend!).

    Sorry I have been MIA for a while. I have been asked by a member to make sure that you have answered any questions that your secret pal asks on Elfster.

    Hope everyone is doing great!

    I remember something being said at the beginning about how on elfster it looks like it is only for one month even though we know it is 3 months. I cant remember the reasoning but I do remember reading that somewhere.

    My gift was sent out yesterday!!

    I totally second that about answering any questions asked of you! I can imagine it being very helpful! Wish my pal would! lol
    I started getting stuff today, but I won't get it mailed until Saturday probably.
    I did however get my mail and my November package was there! Wicked Cool! Thanks SP!!!!! I love it! So cool- the kids will totally love it having the stencils and cool pencils and whatnot! Cannot wait to share it with them and add it to the writing center! So Cool! Thanks! Loving all of it- you even got my favorite lip balm and nail polish (I am obsessed with nail polish!)! You are the best! lol Aw Love it all! So exciting!

    I am in the same situation. However, I think receiving a gift from someone you really don't know is what makes this even more enjoyable. Its not so much the gift, I think its the excitement haha, well I think it is. I love suprises, my husband and family are predictable..so just have fun with it.

    This round of secret pal/teacher last until December. Right now, everyone should be sending out November gifts. Then we will give one last December gift, then I would assume we would start with another . . . I hope :)

    Ok, now what did I do to deserve such an awesome secret pal??? I just used up the last of my coffee this morning, I have no time to go to the store because I have to leave for work in 5 minutes THEN I have to babysit. I just opened my secret pal package and in it was a huge bag of yummy smelling flavored coffee! You saved my weekend! THANK YOU!!!!! There was also a travel mug and muffin mix! [​IMG]

    I got my Nov. package today. I'm not sure when it arrived, but it was waiting for me at my parents' house. Thank you so much SP for the tea and cocoa and flavored coffees! The mug warmer will come in handy too, especially since my apt. is so drafty!

    I love my package! That is one of my favorite books, and my copy is so well-worn the new copy will come in handy! The markers and crayons are always appreciated... and different than what I have, yay! Those crafts look like lots of fun and i can't wait to try soe of them with my kiddos! Thanks, SP! :)

    I received my gift today and I LOVE IT!!!!

    It's the absolute neatest little grow-kit for "chocolate" flowers. They're all chocolate-colored and possibly even chocolate-scented? I'm not sure about that part. In any case it looks like it's going to be super fun!

    THANK YOU!!!!

    I am trying to set up an exchange for my extended family, but we never allow spouses, SOs, and immediate family to get each other's names. Does anyone know how to manage the exchange on elfster so this doesn't happen?
