As [livejournal.com profile] kennedy stated in her post, she and I are not running our secret santa/holiday gift swap this year. There have been problems every year with people not sending out their gifts, but this past year* seemed to be worse. We tried thinking of a new way to do the swap, but every way came up with the same possible problems.

Check out the [livejournal.com profile] holiday_wishes and/or post your wishlist in your lj. Someone might surprise you with a gift.

*To the person who sent me my gift, I knew it was coming late so I'm not including you in that. :)

Here is the reveal of names )

It's behind a cut so that if you haven't received your gift and want to be surprised, you can wait to look.


I hope everyone had fun shopping for their Secret Santa. I know that some people have not received their gifts yet. I don't think there will ever be a year where everyone receives theirs by Christmas. lol

I don't have a paid account right now, so go here and change your answers to the poll from December 17th. That way [livejournal.com profile] kennedy and I can see who is still waiting for their gift, who has received theirs, etc. Don't forget that you can email us at flip_flops [at] fastmail [dot] net if you have any questions. For those who have recently emailed us, we are working on getting you an answer.

[Poll #1107819]

Just a quick poll to see where everyone is at with their sending and receiving.

eta: I forgot to add that when you do send your gift or receive it, come back here and edit your poll answer. Please.


The survey post accidentally got deleted today. Please go here and fill it out again. [livejournal.com profile] kennedy had some of your survey's saved and she will be emailing them to you.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Hello my Secret Santa people!

[livejournal.com profile] kennedy and I are trying to get a fix on who has received their gift and who still needs to send theirs out. So a poll!

[Poll #896748]


If you haven't mailed out your gift, please reply and let me know when you'll be sending it out. I have anonymous commenting turned so nobody else will know you are late. I know things happen and gifts get sent out late. Hell, I'm one of those people. lol

eta: I know it's been over a week since I posted this, but I just thought of something to add. Don't forget to come back and change your answer if you first voted that you had not sent out or received your gift. Thanks.

It's getting close to crunch time people. Please try to have your gift sent out by this weekend so that it arrives in time for Christmas.

If you've already sent out your gift, go you! Please send some of your energy dust my way since I seem to be the procrastinating queen this year. lol
julie: (rudolph)
( Nov. 17th, 2006 10:07 pm)


All of the emails containing your giftee info has been sent out. If you don't receive yours by tomorrow night let me know and I can resend it. Maybe the internet lost it or something.
julie: (rudolph)
( Nov. 15th, 2006 05:46 pm)


If you haven't filled out the survey yet for the Secret Santa exchange, please go and do so asap.

I know I'm late getting out the info to everyone. I'm trying to make sure nobody gets someone overseas when they can't send that far.

Also someone filled out the survey today, but its anonymous so nobody knows who you are. Please repost your survey answers unanonymously. Thanks. :)
