Love the bracelet!

The year I ran it, we had a small mishap too.  It's almost always going to happen.  I will say that because the person who sent a gift to me has a shop but doesn't post in the forum, I tracked her down, figured out who it was, and contacted her through her shop to thank her.  She didn't make it easy.  :)

The bracelet is lovely.
Sandi, you did an amazing job organizing this.  I will not volunteer to organize one in the future, but if the person who does needs a "helper" for gifts to those whose Santas dropped out, I am happy to do that.

Well, Sandi if there were some glitches, you and/or your helpers did a great job of covering it up! You did a great job organizing this & I really appreciate it.
I kind of suspected that my gift recipient wasn't going to post anything - but she did let me know she got it & really liked it!  so, that's good!

There are always glitches as there are always some who want a gift but don't want to reciprocate which is really sad.  However that allllllllll being said enough, this went well.  I admit, I got behind and was a lot later than I had planned on being, but I got it done and she seems happy with her gift and I know I am happy with mine and I have read all the comments here and know that everyone who did participate enjoyed it very much.  Enjoyed seeing all the gifts received, not just what they received, which is what makes this community so special, the caring for each other of those who are here every day to support one another.

Will I step up next year.  One never knows, I never know what will be going on with me a day from now much less a year, but I am always willing to be a helper, ALWAYS.
