Mine is received and awaiting opening. The bits for mine have finally come through, so I'll be posting it tomorrow- here's hoping it at least gets there within 2016!

So I had a problem regarding my paycheck from work. Sadly the gifts can't be sent until the next payday, which is this coming Friday. I feel terrible. Our Santees won't receive their gifts until after Christmas. I did not expect this.

But because of this I will be adding a bit more to the packages to make up for the late delivery.

Happy Christmas Eve! (Australian edition.) My Santee's gifts have been sent a while ago. Hopefully they got there before Christmas!

My Secret Santa has arrived.

Click to Expand
Image

This came directly from Amazon and arrived first. I THOUGHT I knew who sent this, but as it turns out, I was wrong. This might have been sent because I've mentioned how I love Sunstone.

Well, I read it, and it's not as good as Sunstone. I'll talk about why some other time and not dirty up this thread with talk about such things.

Image

Some nice-looking fudge. I'll have to dive into this sometime.

Image

Magic Cards? Uh-oh.

Image

OH! How cute.

Image

Dude. If you'd actually sent me a toe (with nail polish)... that would have officially been the most metal Secret Santa in the world.

Thank you, Secret Santa.

For those who can't see, its a moose and a pack of tarot cards. I think you should haved edit the szie down in MSPaint.

I received Fordite, a by-product of paint fired in the kilns of the Ford plants that merged together. I'll put a picture up later.

You're welcome, King Kool! Glad it all arrived on time.

The book was because of previous gifts exchanges between you and Elomin + Sunstone. It was half gift gag, half hoping it would be good anyways.

Sean says if they had let us keep the toe he would have wanted to display it at home and not let me send it to you. What a party pooper :P

Nothing has arrived here yet, but I'm sure it will soon! :)

And by the by, the thread is sorely lacking in present photos! Hop to it, people-who-have-gotten-their-stuff! :V

Gonna give it a try next game night! Thanks, Secret Santa!

Forgot to say, my son and I sent out our gifts a week ago. No idea how long it will take with the holidays interrupting, but hopefully it won't take too long.

So it turns out Elomin is a benevolent and caring bag-god, and even though I dropped out, he made use of the address I'd sent him to send me some... spreads?

Image

Alcohol infused and tasty looking, but also kinda confusing. But apparently there was a second package coming? Well, about a week later (yesterday) that showed up and...

Image

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I get it!

Thanks again, Elomin! :mrgreen:

My apologies for the double post, but the rest of my gift arrived!

Image

The picture doesn't capture the text on the envelope really well. It reads "Happy Belated Christmas! Happy New Year!" in a lot of bright colors. Already a great start!

Then I opened the envelope. Inside was a handmade card!

Image

And inside the card, a message from Minnichi and Marcus

Image

What a great idea, Marcus!

Image

Image

The quilt is so cute! I love it. And so does Trouble, who immediately decided (rightfully) that it was his!

Image

Thank you, Marcus and Minnichi! It was well worth the wait!

Finally posting what I received for Secret Santa! Received it a few days before Christmas, but I have had a crazy few weeks and haven't been able to be online much (If any of you are thinking of moving around Christmas, don't).

Image

Havent looked through the cover collection yet, but I have already stated using the notebook, its super sweet! My Santa didn't include their forum name, just their real name, so I wont post it, but thank you very much!

I am glad you enjoy it. The youngest ran off with another part of your gift and it is somewhere among their toys. If I find it I can send it along. But I am very glad that at least one of your cats likes the quilt. Marcus thinks Trouble is super adorable.

George and Sissi have both used the quilt too but I didn't have my phone (and therefore my camera) on me at the time. Trouble spends a lot of time on it. They all seem to enjoy it a lot :) Thanks again!

I got my secret Santa gift! A new craft to learn and get supplies for. Needless to say my husband is not thrilled. :D I am. This is awesome.

Good to know it arrived safe Minni, and that you like it ^_^

Also, I have tried to upload pictures of my gift but my phone has apparently taken offence at the idea so sucks :( I was given a whole bunch of Swedish sweets which I am continuing to nom my way through with great satisfaction, a couple of books (one Banks-esque sci-fi, one book of Celtic Myths and Legends which I am absolutely loving) and a Halo Legends DVD that, to my shame, I have yet to try watching. Thanks Santee!
