Some names have already gone out, while others will be going out soon.

Remember to send out your exchanges by-Feb. 17th, and delivery confirmation is suggested.

Pack your items well so that there is no mishaps when it is being shipped and let us all have a fun time with this exchange :).

***Note-I will be on vacation from Feb.1-11th, so will not be checking in on a daily basis, but will try to be on and answer questions as much as I can. So, if anyone could help in keeping this thread bumped, that would be great :cutie: .

Where is everyone finding Easter items already? I went to six different stores in the past few days and nobody has anything Easter out yet. I am starting to get flustered thinking that I won't be able to get an Easter basket together by the ship date. :confused3 I have found a few Spring items, but not enough to fill a basket or bag.

You could try craft stores, the Disney store, online....
Not all items need to be Spring or Easter related....some items can just be things that your pal likes based upon what they said they collect, like.... or just be creative :).
Most of the stores will have their Easter items out the day after Valentines Day, and you will still have time to mail out your exchange since the mail by date is 2/17. :)

Glad to hear it arrived. I was worried about the egg plate since it didn't lay flat in the box. Glad to hear it arrived in one piece.
Enjoy....and have fun at WDW ::yes::

I saw things at Michaels today......mostly decorations, but it was something. There aren't anything in any of our stores yet either.

My daughter got one yesterday and it was PERFECT timing. I pulled her out of class after lunch because she'd been running fever all day. We stopped by the post office on the way home, and she was SOOO excited. It really made her day. Every time she'd pull something else out she'd ooh and aah and get all excited.

I'll have to list all of the items later, but she was most excited about the Doodle Bop Bunny and the Paddle Ball...She dumped it all in her bed with her (under the sheets, lol) when we got home yesterday afternoon and then only woke up for medicine through the night so I haven't really gotten to see all of it.

Thanks again.

Hi all,

Received my package today from Jusmom (Rachel). It was wrapped in a beautiful green Spring bag with a flower cut out.

First off, let me just say that I would like to hire you for my Christmas wrapping next year, everything was wrapped in a pretty lime green tissue paper with Happy Easter ribbon around all of the gifts. It was beautiful.

I got a pretty yellow ceramic hanging egg.

Japanese Cherry Blossom hand cream (from B & BW) I have never smelled this scent before, is it new? I really like it.

A Yankee Candle Clear Sky scented pillar candle. This is a nice fresh scent.

Pretty Lilac napkins/guest towels. This might be the only Lilac I see this year as my Lilac bush refuses to bloom for the last few years. I am hoping for some blooms this year , Lilac is my favorite flower.

Jelly Belly Chocolate Dutch Mints. I have never seen these before, can't wait to taste them.

A box of Merci chocolates.

And last but not least, a Thumper stuffed animal. I LOVE Thumper. He is so cute.

I don't know how you knew all of my favorite things, but you did a great job. Everything arrrived in one piece and it will all be used and is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!!!

Just to let you know, when I was at I Party on Friday, they had a lot of Easter candy out. So everyone waiting might want to check those party type stores also. I didn't buy any, but I am going to go back this week to finish up my packages. This is so much fun.

Hi April, This Spring Easter exchange is closed and we are now sending our exchanges out. To see what exchange is next, look for the sticky that says "Find all exchange links here" There is a new exchange for the letter J that is taking names if you would like to join.
Also please edit your post and take your personal information off, the best way to send this information is through PM, if you need help just ask, there are some great people here and they will come to your aid.

swimsuit cover up - (she is really excited about this now that she knows what it is..lol. She took it to our grandmother's this weekend to show her and had my dad start working on our pool (like we're getting in it anytime soon :rotfl:) )
And it was all in a cute easter bag filled with easter grass!


Hope I didn't forget anything. She was into the bag a lot before I ever got to really see it all.

I went to the local Hobby Lobby this afternoon and was pleasantly suprised to find 2 aisles of Spring and Easter stuff that they had just unloaded this morning! What a relief as I was starting to worry that none of the things i have so far for my receiver would have anything to do with the "real" theme, lol! :woohoo:

Then, as an added bonus I checked my mailbox station and found my exchange from Luv2Roam :banana: !
When I opened the box, I found:
an adorable four parks one world note card
a cute Mickey head topped ball point pen
a really cute glittery pink bunny bag (hee hee! I thought it was a bean bag but it is really filled with candy! Disney character chocolate coins and Seven Dwarves fruit gems- love it!)
A limited edition pin trading lanyard with Chip & Dale medal (they are painting a peanut shell like an Easter egg- too adorable!)
A large cylinder of Ghiradelli Cookies and Mint Malt balls (heavenly!)
A cylinder filled with Disney Gourmet Jelly Beans (yummy!)
a limited edition Easter Pin featuring Pooh, Piglet, and Tigger (he is on a spring and dressed as the Easter Bunny so he bounces around, lol!)

Thanks Barbara for a GREAT package- I love all of it! :hug:

And I just looked more closely at the box- I saw all the TinkerBell stickers right away, but I only just focused in on the subtle Villains stickers too! What a fantastic touch for this Villains fan! :thumbsup2

I have ordered from them many times.....been a customer for over 30 years :eek:
An order takes about 2 weeks to get here. So that is time....as long as you order soon, it would arrive not too long after the mail out date.

But I am also sure Feb. 15 you will see a lot of things show up in all the stores.

Hi all,

Just want to let you know that my packages are at the post office (actual mail date is tomorrow) they went Priority w/ DC. One package is going North, one West.
Just to let everyone know, I finally found some Easter items yesterday at Christmas Tree Shops. They had some really nice things.

I had to finish buying this weekend, as next weekend I am very busy and don't know if I will make it to the stores or to the post office (and with my work schedule, I only get to the PO on Sat).

Patsy, are you back from vacation? How was it? Where did you go?

Bear salt & pepper shakers (I'm thinking Super Bowl here??? Chicago Bears!!!!:cheer2: :thumbsup2 :cool1: ) Thanks!!!!!!!!!! ;)

I had most of my package ready to go, but found one store that has Easter candy out! Kmart of all places, is the only store (including the mall) around here that has it already.

I will mail mine out as soon as I can get out of the house. WHat a weird storm! All hail.....but like a bad rain storm! It hasn't stopped since last night.

MickeyMamma
02-14-2007, 01:43 PM
My package is just about ready. Still all Valentines stuff in the stores, although I noticed them setting up for the Easter/Spring things a few days ago. I have 1 or 2 more little things to pick up and then my package will go out on Friday.

We are getting the storm now too, like pennst8r mentioned. We are getting freezing rain. Very strange storm. It has been icing/raining/snowing (not sure what to call it) all day. Still not sure how it will work when I get out to pick up DS from school.

We are getting hit by that stupid storm too. I have to go food shopping tomorrow so I will try Kmart then. Hopefully someone will have something!! It seems like every other Holiday got started at least 2 months early! Go figure:confused3

I'll post when I have success!!

Yes, that was how I first learned of them, too. Then when we moved here to Colorado I saw my first brick and mortar store for Harry & Davids! :woohoo:

I looked on the website (HarryAndDavids.com) and it looks like in MA there are two locations in Wrentham and Lee, both at outlet centers I think. Just FYI :goodvibes

Slight complication. I tried to get out this morning to take DS to school and was going to run some errands including dropping off my Exchange at the Post Office. Well, I didn't move my car yesterday and I guess things froze over because it looks like now I am on a sheet of ice. So far, I cannot move it even with my neighbor's help.

We are going to try again this afternoon to get out, but it looks like I am not going anywhere today. I ended up walking DS to school today which was a nightmare since DD has to ride in her stroller since she is so little.

Long story short - if I can get out today, I will go to the Post Office. If I can't then I will do my best to get there Saturday. Maybe my neighbor can drop it off for me if I am still stuck.

Well, one of my packages that I mailed this week was confirmed as delivered today, YEAH! Hope that the recipient likes it.:goodvibes
But my other one is not even showing that it was shipped on my delivery confirmation. When I type in the number it says that there is no information on that package or that I have put in an incorrect number :confused3 . I called the post office and they didn't have any suggestions for me. I sent it priority mail (and even though I know that it has a very long way to go, I would at least expect it to say something on delivery confirmation). I hope that it makes it to it's final destination in the next week. I didn't insure it, if all else fails, I will have to resend. I don't think that there is anything else that I can do, is there??????

Well, we made the packages and I had the boxes open to add more Easter candy.

I'm so so sorry that I didn't get mine out today! :guilty:

It's been fun here in the ice! I will get it there asap on Tuesday morning. Altho the main roads are clear, the side ones including our deveopment are still mostly ice. DH did get home last night, but spent time inching along the turnpike at 1 mile/20 minutes! (there was a huge accident still there from 10 am!) I admit I've been a little nervous about going out if I didn't truly have to.

I promise to send it xtra speedy to make up for it!

snowwite - I know what you mean. Actually what happened is I went outside yesterday afternoon with some cardboard pieces and hoped that the fact that it was sunny and that I salted around the wheels and put the cardboard to grip would work - no such luck. But 2 neighbors saw me and came to help - 1 had a shovel and 1 had a spade. It took a good 30 minutes, but the got me out with me going back and forth and them guiding and digging. Thank goodness for nice neighbors! :grouphug: I baked them big batches of cookies and dropped them off last night to help say thanks.

BUT....it was from Alissa (mickeymomma) who sent

-An Easter egg plate with really cute S&P shakers--which I collect!

-A door hanger that looks like a stitched sampler and says Welcome with 2 stuffed bunnies and a chick at the top--looks like they're peeping over. Really cute! ALready on the door

-CANDY yum

-Princess pen that changes ink color, which DS6 is really intrigued with, but since it's a "girl" pen, he was trying to play with it without DS10 and DS11 seeeing, so they don't make fun of him! :rotfl:

THANK YOU! so much

I am glad you liked it all. When I put the pen in, I was thinking more that it was for you - something a little girly since you have a house full of boys, LOL!

Glad to know you collect salt and pepper shakers (didn't know that). I just thought that the set was cute.

Sneaky, sneaky postman! Maybe after all the plow trucks over the past week, your dog was just used to lots of extra noise.

Thankfully it is finally warming up though. We are having a TON of melting today - hoping you are having the same.

Im am SO VERY SORRY for not checking in sooner. I sent out my package on Saturday so my person should be recieving theirs soon. I am also very in awe of snowite because she cheered up my DD's day so much yesterday! The package we recieved was jam packed with all kinds of awesome easter treats including some really cool disney stickers and a neat lighted butterfly decoration.

Thanks for making this such a fun exchange!

PS: I really hope my Diser recieves hers soon! It was sent to someone named Laura. If you don't recieve it my Friday please let me know so I can try and track it.

Hello All,

Im am SO VERY SORRY for not checking in sooner. I sent out my package on Saturday so my person should be recieving theirs soon. I am also very in awe of snowite because she cheered up my DD's day so much yesterday! The package we recieved was jam packed with all kinds of awesome easter treats including some really cool disney stickers and a neat lighted butterfly decoration.

Thanks for making this such a fun exchange!

PS: I really hope my Diser recieves hers soon! It was sent to someone named Laura. If you don't recieve it my Friday please let me know so I can try and track it.

Thank you for posting. I was starting to worry because the post office confirmed it was delivered but there was no post I was starting to think it went to the wrong house!
Have a good one everyone. I have to run to jury duty. :hippie:

Hooray! :cheer2: I'm glad it got there safely...I was worried about the "instruction" ribbon sinking back into the packing peanuts, lol! :goodvibes

I had a blast shopping for her- she likes all the same things I do! My DH and I have collected about 100 of the Pirates card packs (he actually plays the game, I just like to build and display the ships inside!).
And thank you for the PM- ya'll are so sweet! :hug:

I wish I knew when mine was mailed. The last I heard it was supposed to be here by the weekend. Obviously that isnt happening. I hope it doesnt come Monday.No one will be here and it is trash day so a box left out front would likely get thrown out.
This happened to me the last time I did an exchange too. If my DD chooses to continue doing these she is on her own. This experience has soured me on the whole thing. If I got an email or a PM saying "I was sick", " my car died", " my kids are sick","I got snowed in " anything with an explanation and an apology I would be fine. As it stands I am getting more and more upset every day knowing that I fulfilled my obligation but wonder if everyone did the same. It just is not fun to be left in the lurch.:sad2:

Patsy,

Thank you for doing an update. Now we all should know approximately where we stand. I have a feeling that there will be a lot of posts regarding packages being received tomorrow night. The post office sure has been slow in getting packages to their destination lately. :rolleyes1

Thank you for keeping track of all of the packages, that must have been a bit time consuming, but I for one appreciate it.

disneyfanatic3166's DD-Casey-mailed 2/17 I mailed this one and she got it on the 20th. Her mom has already posted and I already emailed you conformation as well so that one can come off the list. Where was mone mailed from on the 20th? It just seems to be taking a lot longer than it should. I shipped everything Priority mail and made certain to get out by the due date. had I been unable to do so I would have contacted the recipient and explained why. At this point I care more about getting an apology for making me have such a miserable week than I do about getting the package. I realy feel it is so inconsiderate to not have the courtesy to contact me.
Patsy, I do appreciate what you have tried to do and it is not you who I am frustrated with. I am upset that my package was sent late but no one has made any effort to reach me.
Thanks-

I thing you got the wrong basket, I send you the mini eggs (cannot remember the name) black Jelly beans, and other candy,the other person liked PB, so the mixed the boxes. I'm so sorry you're disappointed. I used bubble wrap and beans, I'm sorry I cannot control how the mail is handle. The only thing that I had on my list that you didn't like was Peeps.
Sorry you're not happy with your exchange. Thank God my DD didn't read this, she was asking about it since she likes to read her name on the boards and the items she send, she'll be so sad to read this post, she picked the candy, the basket and had so much fun. oh well.

Our patience paid off! :yay: :hourglass :yay:

Madison received the coolest box of goodies from Cameron princess: - daughter of ksloane from Texas!

Inside the box was the following:

A pink nylon collapsible Easter Basket - chocked full of candy and plastic eggs! :banana: Our favorite was the Reese Peanut Butter Eggs! :love: YUMMY!! One can NEVER have enough Peanut Butter! (Well, maybe if it was Peter Pan... :scared:) We LOVE us some JIF Peanut Butter and Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs! THANKS!

Okay... enough about PB :rotfl: - and on with the rest of the contents...

a rainbow Swirly Pop sucker - the kind that last for days and days :hourglass
a Smarties dispenser - pink bunny (similar to Pez)
Princess Fruit Snacks princess:
a package of yellow chick Peeps
a cute chick riding a bike wind-up toy with mini swirly pop
a bunny jelly bean dispenser/game
a grow your own "dream house" (put in water and it expands x times!)
a cute little cupcake lipgloss
a PAAS egg coloring kit
a Littlest Pet Shop figurine - Siamese Cat (which we didn't have!) :woohoo:
and
the CUTEST stuffed bunny - with really long legs - and a push button that does a "tigger bounce" kind of noise and says HAPPY EASTER!!

Thank you! Thank you! for everything! Madison LOVED it all! :yay: We appreciate the time and effort you took in putting everything together and sending it off to us! :thumbsup2 And, it really wasn't that long of a wait! I'm sure the incredibly terrible weather we have had recently has slowed the post office's ability to delivery mail and packages - and no matter how perfect we may think we are :angel: - we probably aren't :sad2: - and that holds especially true for the Post Office! I just think it's very important to be grateful and thankful! :flower3:

I would also like to thank Patsy for putting together this exchange as well as those in the past! :hug: I'm sure it is very stressful trying to get everyone to actually follow-through with what they commit to! As if she has any control over what each of us do! I'm sure she gets messages from those that aren't pleased. Can you imagine how much work it is to gather everyone's names - match them up - send them out - and cross your fingers hoping you won't need an Elf?? Definitely Kudos are due! :cheer2:

I guess my recent viewing of the Academy Awards has encouraged me to spread the thank you's and since there is no music :rolleyes1 to usher me off of the stage - I think I'll keep going....

I also want to thank those of you "exchangers" that actually "DO" send out the promised package! :woohoo: Of course we all have "life" to deal with - and more times than not - something will come up - the kids are sick, the weather is bad - we are sick - something will happen! And I'm sure that we won't be able to send "exactly" what the recipient wanted - how can we? People are so different and hard to please! But I'm sure everyone does their best and deserves to be thanked for their efforts! Again - I've never met the perfect person - I'm waiting for HEAVEN for that one! ;) But as long as the commitment is made - and notice is given - and the package arrives - everthing is right in the world! :hippie: Especially since these exchanges are supposed to be FUN!! :rotfl: They are certainly not the be all - end all! Just simple fun! :yay:

Happy Easter - Happy Spring Everyone!

Our patience paid off! :yay: :hourglass :yay:

Madison received the coolest box of goodies from Cameron princess: - daughter of ksloane from Texas!

Inside the box was the following:

A pink nylon collapsible Easter Basket - chocked full of candy and plastic eggs! :banana: Our favorite was the Reese Peanut Butter Eggs! :love: YUMMY!! One can NEVER have enough Peanut Butter! (Well, maybe if it was Peter Pan... :scared:) We LOVE us some JIF Peanut Butter and Reeses Peanut Butter Eggs! THANKS!

Okay... enough about PB :rotfl: - and on with the rest of the contents...

a rainbow Swirly Pop sucker - the kind that last for days and days :hourglass
a Smarties dispenser - pink bunny (similar to Pez)
Princess Fruit Snacks princess:
a package of yellow chick Peeps
a cute chick riding a bike wind-up toy with mini swirly pop
a bunny jelly bean dispenser/game
a grow your own "dream house" (put in water and it expands x times!)
a cute little cupcake lipgloss
a PAAS egg coloring kit
a Littlest Pet Shop figurine - Siamese Cat (which we didn't have!) :woohoo:
and
the CUTEST stuffed bunny - with really long legs - and a push button that does a "tigger bounce" kind of noise and says HAPPY EASTER!!

Thank you! Thank you! for everything! Madison LOVED it all! :yay: We appreciate the time and effort you took in putting everything together and sending it off to us! :thumbsup2 And, it really wasn't that long of a wait! I'm sure the incredibly terrible weather we have had recently has slowed the post office's ability to delivery mail and packages - and no matter how perfect we may think we are :angel: - we probably aren't :sad2: - and that holds especially true for the Post Office! I just think it's very important to be grateful and thankful! :flower3:

I would also like to thank Patsy for putting together this exchange as well as those in the past! :hug: I'm sure it is very stressful trying to get everyone to actually follow-through with what they commit to! As if she has any control over what each of us do! I'm sure she gets messages from those that aren't pleased. Can you imagine how much work it is to gather everyone's names - match them up - send them out - and cross your fingers hoping you won't need an Elf?? Definitely Kudos are due! :cheer2:

I'm so glad it arrived and that she liked it. We had a good time shopping for these goodies. Basically Cameron went around picking out the things she wanted. :rotfl: (And since a couple have been picked up and put up for her for Easter).

I DID RECEIVED A BASKET LIKE WE ARE TOLD TO SEND :confused3 SO I WAS THINKING THAT THIS ONE WAS THE LESS THAN A DOLLAR EXCHANGE :(
WHERE IS MY BASKET?

PLEASE put your exchanges in either an Easter/Spring themed gift bag, Easter basket...or some other creative and fun gift giving way.


Mine was a PM envelope.

Just to chime in on what PixieDust32 posted on this exchange...we at first thought we had received the wrong exchange..given that we only had signed up for this one, Rachel knew it was the Easter/Spring...the items were sent in a PM envelope and because of this the items inside were crushed when she received them. I does make a difference on how we send our items...long distance and envelopes don't mix well...:worried: We have no desire for the items to be replace...and we do thank you.
Signing off :wave2:

Well i'm sorry everyone was so unhappy with the items I sent. I haven't always recieved the greatest things, but just enjoyed the fun of it. I will resend to the people I had to the spring time exchange because I do care that things are nice. This time there were circumstances that I couldnt help. So I will get boxes out as soon as I can. And this will be the last exchange I do. Thank you.

Mine came in the PM envelope too, and all came intact. The choc marshmallow eggs were squashed. However I managed to choke them down. :rotfl2: And since I don't decorate for Easter, not having a basket was certainly no issue for me.
