I have a new appreciation for bloggers who host swaps! In fact, a huge appreciation. It is a lot of (fun) work with paying attention to details and trying to keep on the ball about things....I never knew!
We had 67 swappers...that is a lot of folks, people!!! However.....
out of the 67 swappers.......12 have not mailed their packages as of today, or have not emailed me to let me know the delivery confirmation number. Out of those 12.....4 will not respond to me AT ALL. I have emailed numerous times, left messages on their blog(s) and still no response. I am really at a loss. I am really sad, because someone else is counting on them to come through with the obligation they signed up for and that someone did fulfill all of their obligations to the swap. So, this will serve as another reminder that please get your package in the mail as soon as possible. If you have not received an email from me, check your spam folder.......please. I will keep hounding said people via email or comments....so blogger be warned.
With that being said...what a fun, fun thing it is to see all the generous packages being sent to the participants. I am ever impressed at the generosity and true Christmas spirit.
A reminder, I have updated the original link with ( * * * ) by the blogs name that have posted about receiving their gifts. I have tried very hard to keep up with this and keep it currant so all can go back to one location to view everyone's gifts. Please let me know when your gift arrives so I can update the list.
Lastly, if anyone would like to volunteer to be an "Elf" in case these Missing in action Santa's don't step up to the plate.....please email me privately and let me know.
Do Not Worry.....if your personal secret Santa does not send your package....you still will receive one....I just could not stand the thought of that happening, but hate the thought of disappointing someone worse. I am still going to be optimistic that this is just an oversight on their part....and it will be corrected soon.
A list will be posted later this month as to who had who...so you will know who to thank for your gifts! Thank you all who participated in the SSS this year....it was my first time hosting and have a deep respect for the last hostess who passed it on to me! I hope you have enjoyed shopping for your partner and meeting new bloggers. Merry Christmas!
