    scissors, I know there is a feature in there that allows you to do that, but I'm not sure where it is... and since I'm not in charge of an exchange, I can't experiment... but I checked the "help" page, and I think there should be a "draw restrictions" tab... you should be able ot do it in there???

    Nevermind. After I got everything set up my mom informs me that exchanges would be made "the old-fashioned way". Grr!

    I hope my SP got her gift. I sent it out last week, but haven't heard from her yet.

    Love the Barnes and Noble gift card--can't wait to go pick out some great books for Christmas break! (Or maybe the classroom library...tough choices ;))

    Proud, I am SO sorry to hear that. I always hate being on the receiving end of someone who doesn't pull their weight :(

    Proud,

    I sorry your sp hasn't come through. I still haven't received my November package but my sp did send me a message before Thanksgiving saying that she had had the flu and hadn't gotten to the post office.

    Hey SP,

    Thanks for the November package :) The candle smells wonderful, the photo album is very cute (that's my favorite saying) and the chocolate is great (one of the food groups, right?)

    I did receive a lovely package in October, but nothing yet for Nov/Dec.
    I am glad I did this because my recipient seemed very thankful:D

    Just wanted to let my SP know that I had planned to have their last package mailed already :) (wanted to be early this time) but I am waiting for a personalized item to arrive. It will hopefully be here Monday or Tuesday and I will have it in the mail so that hopefully it will get there before the 20th.

    I sent my SP her final package yesterday. I revealed myself on a card I placed in the box. This has been fun! I am sorry some were not faithful in holding up their end of the bargain though.

    I haven't bought my last present yet. Unfortunately I forgot that I have to make 3 mortgage payments this month and I only have money left over for groceries and gas. I have asked my sister to lend me some money though. Hopefully I'll get it by Monday.

    I am mailing mine out tomorrow and I have already received my final package! Thanks SP! I do not know who you are though, yet!
    The person who mailed stuff to me was awesome! She totally got me and knew everything so perfectly! I do not know how she was able to do it sooo perfectly! Everything was just very me! Thanks!
    I hope my SP likes theirs! The final pack is going out tomorrow and I will put my atoz name on it- good idea! I would not have thought of that.

    I sent out my final package this past Thursday, so she should be getting it early this week. I put my atoz name on a card inside the box.

    My package is going out today on the way home from school... I had hoped to get it in the mail sooner but I had to finish up something for it first :) I put a card in there with my A to Z name.

    I mailed my final package this morning. I was waiting for a personalized item and it was delayed (don't you love FedEx :)) Anyway I hope she enjoys. I put my real name on the outside of the package but she should be able to figure it out from the name and location :).

    :( - maybe whoever is in charge this time won't allow people to participate that didn't follow through on previous secret pal exchanges. Or - make sure someone gets you and proud (I think she's the other one that had been missed twice before) and make sure you secret pal is someone that has participated before faithfully.
