Too bad, I shaved my beard, cause now Santa Gary's in town with Alpha Sealed Starters for everyone :-D
I can't wait! Thanks Gary!
Well, to keep it in the spirit, I sent them all to Alexis and he will distribute them.......

I got my name and i'm thinking up something.
Wish I had more time to really do something unique but that's hard to do in just a month, during the holiday season. 8-|
I have enough cards to stack them all up, and commit suicide off the top!

I have an idea...

But it is going to take a bit of time, some serious research and learning a new skill.

Really worried about the time constraints. I'm sending from overseas and just bought some items for sending, but I'm just not sure there is enough time for me to receive and send + receipt within a month.

I lucked out, the wishlist I got was things that I had on hand so was able to send them out already to their overseas destination.

My Luck is to have a wish list of my recipient that's a "No Wish List" #-o

Getting there, I think I am going to have to choose the fastest express service that is offered by the post office in order to get it there in time but it is in the intial stages of finalisation...

Fortunately I do all my best work when I am running out of time, I could have received my name three months ago and I would still be at the same stage I am at now.

I have already perfected one technique but in order to finish the gift I am going to have to learn a few more, and any stage in the process can ruin it all! I ran out of supplies so I am going to have to go out tonight to get some more, it is the goat's blood that is the hardest to find around here.

I might just have to send out an email to my recipient when I post it to let them know the estimated date of arrival, particularly if it is going to be late.

Hello,

I got an envelope from my secret Santa Claus today !

I'm very thrilled, but of course it will go under the tree and be opened on the 25th only.

You know, Mark, I have always had trouble with ribbon tying too. Good luck.

I sent my package today.

I was waiting to get a neat item that I really wanted to include, and I finally managed to do so.

The envelope went out registered airmail (only feasible way with Italian Posts) but should hopefully get to destination in time for Christmas.

It is not so much the ribbon tying that is causing me the problems, it is getting them to hold still while you are tying it.
