*This is an exchange thread for members (past and present) of the DIS Girls Only Disneyland trips.*

Hi ladies! :)

Our last exchange went so well, we are ready for our next one! This will be the second out of five exchanges; first was summer, after this will be Halloween, Christmas stocking, and finally the exchange during the Meet and Greet the first night of our trip.

Some of you are familiar with the exchanges done on the Exchange board of the DIS. If you are not, please take a moment to scan the information below as it should help answer any questions you may have.

First off, it's entirely voluntary. Just a fun thing for those interested. For each exchange there is a minimum $$$ amount that you must spend, which does NOT include shipping.

Once sign ups are complete each lady who signed up will receive the name of a person to exchange with. You will not be sending to the same person you receive from. Then the fun begins! Simply go shopping for items to send that fall within each particular theme, mail it out by the mail by date, and then wait for your package to arrive. This is not anonymous by the way, so include your name on the package.

Each exchange takes approximately a month or more, to complete from start (sign ups) to finish (all packages accounted for). Make sure you won't be on vacation during the shipping and receiving times. Remember to post on the thread when you ship your package out. Also post when you receive your package, and what goodies you get.


~ Important information ~
Sign-ups will run now through Thursday evening June 18. Names will go out in PMs sometime on the 19th, so please be available to check your messages on the DIS that day.

Mail by date is Friday, July 3rd. PLEASE mail on time. If you cannot for some reason, please PM me and let me know. You may mail sooner if you are done shopping early.

Minimum dollar amount is $20. That does NOT include shipping costs, OR any freebies or extras should you choose to include those in the package.

Also this exchange is different than the last one in that this time it's open to kids as well! So feel free to sign up yourself and/or your kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc.





Okay so here is the info for our second theme:

:tink:Favorite Disney or Cartoon Character


If you are interested in joining this exchange, please PM me with the following info:

****Sorry, sign ups are now CLOSED!****
Name ~
Address ~

Email address ~
Are you able to be an elf if needed? Yes or No
Are you willing to ship to Canada? Yes or No


What is your favorite character? (please be specific and include your top 3 choices)

Do you collect anything or have any hobbies?

Do you like to cook/bake?

T-shirt and shoe size?

Are your ears pierced? If so, any restrictions on what earrings you can wear?

Any allergies?

Is there anything that you really prefer not to receive?

Is there anything special you'd really love to get?

*Feel free to include any additional information you think would be helpful to your person when they shop for you, but keep in mind the ultimate gift giving decisions will be made by your person.


KIDS ~ If you are signing up a child as well, PLEASE PM me with ALL of the above information (name, address, favorites) along with their:
Sex:
Age:
Any other helpful information:


If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask here or send me a PM and I will happily answer them for you.

Oh, and before I forget, Cheryl added what I thought was some really useful information to her PM which was that she has pierced ears. That could come in handy in an exchange like this, so I'm going to add that to the questions up top.

So how does it work with the kidlets? Will the kids be exchanging with kids or could it be adult exchanging with kids? Just wondering--I'm fine either way.

Hi!

Beth I am assuming you got my PM? I asked DBF's DS if he wanted to do it but I would need to buy his gift because with his Boy Scout camp and my traveling I won't see him after we get our names/characters and when I need to send it. He wants to wait for another one when he can pick out the goodies so it was just me.

:banana: I am going to DL this weekend and I can't wait to get my name so I can do my shopping!

Thanks again Beth for being our master organizer!:hug:

Hi Stitch. This exchange is for members of the girls only trips. If you're thinking of joining us on the trip, we'd love to have you join this exchange as it's meant as a way to sort of get to know one another better before the trip.
If not, and your interested in exchanges, the DIS has an exchange board that is open to everyone and has all different themes with everything from gardening to cooking to holiday themes. :)

Sure thing. Here is the link if you need it: http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=134

You can sort of read through the titles and see just how many different themes they offer and which ones interest you. Just be careful, the exchanges can be addicting. :rotfl:

I am the same way... my faves change all the time and I have a lot that I like for different reasons and different moods. I am sure that at least one on my list would be different if we were doing this exchange 2 months from now!

I have my 3 faves that stay pretty consistent. So does DD9, but DD12 changes her mind sometimes. I'm so excited, we can't wait to get our matches and go shopping for them!! The girls are excited too, we've got a fun filled evening of shopping planned for Friday night, since they on Saturday and I won't see them for 2 1/2 weeks. :(

Hello exchangers!! Happy Hump Day to y'all. :cool1:

Just an update, so far we have 18 adults signed up, and 16 kids. Not bad at all! :woohoo: It's going to be a fun exchange for sure.

I'm skipping this one, because I've got the twins birthday coming up July 9 and that always take a chunk of change, plus I've got lots of dentist and doctor appts to pay for. Gotta make my dentist's boat payment don't ya know? :rolleyes: :rotfl2:

But I am sooooo excited to read about all the fun packages, AND I am already thinking ahead to the Halloween one. :yay: That one I wouldn't miss for anything. ;)

Did you put in the girls? I put Zoe in....


Sorry I didn't see this post earlier. No I didn't put the girls in on this one cuz I just can't afford to do three boxes this time. With putting money aside for Oct and our D.C. trip right around the corner AND saving for Feb I just can't do it. Plus I just had to pay 200 for our vet bill and on and on. I am sure if I get anything fun I will end up sharing it with them anyway ;)

I know on the ladies trip I gave them all my candy etc anyway. Same thing will probably happen with the halloween and Christmas exchange LOL. I usually end up giving everything to them anyway unless it was something like drink glasses although I don't drink so I wouldn't use those either ;)

Looking forward to seeing pics and hearing about all the fun! :goodvibesHi Callie, I saw you had posted and I was prepared to say "I can add you!!" lol. But you are probably right, with the move, it's too hard. You've got way to much going on.

Do you like Halloween? That's our next one, and it will be for kids too. And I'm going to let people specify if they prefer a cutesy Halloween (think the Mickey's Trick or Treat party decorations) or a scary Halloween (think Knott's Scary Farm decorations).
Or if not, we'll be doing the Christmas stocking exchange which is adults only. I'm excited about that. I loved getting stockings as a kid.


Anyway, good luck with the move! :goodvibes

Names have all gone out. :cool1: We had 40 sign-ups total! YAY!!
Please check your PM boxes here (not just your emails) so I know for sure all the names are picked up.

If you have any questions or your PM is missing any info just let me know. Thanks! (I think I forgot to include DIS names on a few, and the newbies might not know their person well enough yet to figure who's who, also I forgot the age on one of them. About half way through the 40 names my eyes were starting to blur! :eek: :lmao: )

Remember mail by date is July 3rd. Minimum is $20 for each package you send out. That does not include shipping or any "freebies/extras" should you choose to send them.

Please post here once you've mailed and when/what you receive.

Thanks for playing along, and have FUN shopping.

I am ready to mail my package today but I forgot to write my name inside of it to tell my person who sent it! OOPS!! So should I pm that person once I mail it or wait for them to get it and ask on here who sent it to them? EEK! I was so busy trying to get it all wrapped up safe and sound and getting the box all sealed up that I totally forgot to include a note! (in my best homer simpson voice) DOH!!!!

Does it say Kelly on the return address?? If so, the receiver should be able to figure it out. You're the only Kelly in the group :thumbsup2.

And boy, you are QUICK!!! I only bought 1 thing so far & I'm going to try and do a little shopping on Sunday while at Disneyland.

kelmac284
06-25-2009, 12:57 PM
Actually I just put K and my last name. I know I know I am a dufus! I just wasn't thinking! Like I said I was so busy building the box and packing everything and then taping it all up and then AFTER I did all that I was like oh crude LOL! I was thinking I can just mail it and then wait a day or two and pm the person. Not too special but better than nothing LOL.

And the girls and I went to the galleria and got all our stuff at the Disney store so it was a one stop shopping trip so it worked out well! They had EVERYTHING that was just PERFECT for my person!! You will see what I mean later but I think it worked out really well!

You guys that live down by the parks are really lucky cuz you can get REALLY fun stuff! ;) I wanted to add some fun little candies or something but they didn't have any of that. Oh well!

kelmac284
06-26-2009, 02:40 PM
This is my post saying officially that my package has been mailed! :) I will pm the person next week if they don't get it before then and let them know it was from me!

Hope you enjoy it!

Hi everyone, just wanted to post that I did my shopping online today with the items being sent directly to my person. I didn't want to chance them not getting to me by the mail date. The only thing is I'm not sure if it will have my name on the package anywhere.:confused3

DizNee Luver
06-26-2009, 08:45 PM
Got my shopping done today for my gift exchange, the 8yr olds exchange, the 3yr olds exchange & the twins exchange..........shooey that adds up quick!!!

Should be mailing them out on the 1st when I get some more money in. Will post when I've officially sent them. :rotfl:

PS: Just a note for the 4 receipiants.......we don't have a Disney Store anywhere near us, so this was put together as best I could. Hard to "character" shop when you're limited on places to get it. But I think they'll all be pleased anyway.

prettyprincessbelle
06-26-2009, 10:07 PM
I think I finished my shopping. I'm going shopping again Monday so I'll probably find a few more things to throw in there. I should be sending my package out by Thursday. I'll post when I send it out for sure!

I got all the big items for the exchange. Now I just want to find some coordinating small things to add (munchies and stuff). But I think I'm doing okay time wise.

I just wanted to let you all know that I have been bombarded with work, and I am leaving for a cabin/camping trip tomorrow thry the 5th, so my package won't be sent out until the 6th. Major appologizes to my friend who will be getting her package a couple of days late!

Got my shopping done today for my gift exchange, the 8yr olds exchange, the 3yr olds exchange & the twins exchange..........shooey that adds up quick!!!

Should be mailing them out on the 1st when I get some more money in. Will post when I've officially sent them. :rotfl:

PS: Just a note for the 4 receipiants.......we don't have a Disney Store anywhere near us, so this was put together as best I could. Hard to "character" shop when you're limited on places to get it. But I think they'll all be pleased anyway.

Laurie we don't have one near us either. The girls and I got creative. ;) I'm hoping that our boxes will be well received.

Oh, and I received my box from Kelly on Saturday--but didn't find it until yesterday on the front porch!

Oh Cheryl I am so glad you got my package and figured out it was from me LOL. I don't know if you saw my other post but I got it all wrapped and then forgot to write my name inside. DUH! I was so worried about the little mickey head breaking off the dip thing and getting it all wrapped up that I totally forgot to put a note LOL.

I hope you like everything. I was SO excited to find not one, not two but ALL three of the characters you mentioned on the dip tray and then all three on the plates. I hope you can use those items. I figured everyone can use dishes and stationary! :)

I wanted to add some little disney candies or something too to make it fun but our disney store doesn't sell any and I looked for earings as well but no jewelry either :(.

But hope you enjoy! :)

06-29-2009, 06:42 PM
Tell me about it! LOL. Mickey and Tink I was not surprised because they are pretty popular but STITCH!! Wow! He is not one you would usually find with the other two. When I saw that I was like I HAVE to get that! I had some ideas when I went to the store but then I saw that and was like NO. THIS is what I MUST get! It is TOO perfect. And then I was going to get one or two of the plates and something else but I decided one of each was perfect because that way you would have each of your favs. Plus then they would go with the dip tray! :)

I couldn't believe it! So glad you like and like I said who can't use dishes LOL. I know I always can. It is so hard buying for others because you just never know others taste and I so wanted to get you some earrings but living up here we don't have NEARLY the selection as you lucky ducks that live near the parks. I ALMOST got you a coffee cup but I thought, BORING. Anyone can get that and you probably already have a million if you are like us and living near the park you can get TONS of cute ones. And I thought the stationary was cuter. So glad you like! :)

I had remembered seeing Rochelle post a picture of these really cute totes but when I went back to find them in the thread the picture was gone so I PM'd her asking for the picture so I would know what I was looking for and luckily I found the Tink tote while I was at DL last weekend. I loved it and was hoping you'd like it too!

I am with the procrastinators!!! Totally.

I have all for the adult, and most for the kid. Haven't even thought about boxing, writing a note, or going to the PO.

Much of the stuff I want to keep for myself. I don't think I am getting into the real spirit of the thing, since I end up buying for ME, then coveting the stuff for the exchangee.

Cheryl and I did go to DTD yesterday and do some shopping, went with her mom and my DD too, I had a blast, hope CHeryl isn't as we speak changing her cell phone number!!!!

Hi All. I ordered my person's exchange items today and they're being shipped directly to them. I'll keep track of the shipping and when I see that it's delivered I'll PM the person to let them know that I was their exchange person.

My girls exchange items should be in the mail Thursday. I'll post again to let you know that they've been put in the mail.

Just a quick note to whomever got my girls and I. We are leaving the 8th for DL and won't be back until the 12th, so if someone drew us and would prefer to wait to ship that's fine with me, I'd hate to have boxes sitting on our porch..altho we do have someone staying at our house so she will bring them if that's the case. :) I just wanted to give that option to our exchangers. :)

I'm all done with Zoe's person. I thought he was going to be a challenge, but ended up being alot easier than I though.

I'm having more challenges finding what I want for my person. I've gotten all the "little" stuff, but looking for the big one. I may have to internet shop and send it directly to her.

Hope everyone is having as much fun with this as I am! :cloud9:

DizNee Luver
07-03-2009, 05:14 PM
The ones I've sent were either in a tote or bagged/boxed but not wrapped. The one I received last time was not wrapped..... I guess I did tissue wrap a number of the items I sent last exchange, now that I think about it!! :rotfl:

It's totally a personal choice!!

It's up to you like Laurie said. I've seen some that were wrapped up very pretty. And then you have the people like me who toss it into a grocery bag and send it on it's way. ;)

The main thing I'd worry about is making sure it's packed in a way where nothing will break, and I'd suggest taping the box along the sides if possible. I was on one exchange where someone's box broke open and most items fell out. :sad2:

I didn't open until this morning since I got home really late and was too tired, but I love my items.

-I got an Eeyore umbrella (needed this since I lost my Mickey umbrella while at Disney World).
-A Cheshire Cat mug (Cute) &
-Daisy pen w/koosh ball like hair sticking out (the baby loves this).

She managed to get an item for each of my fav characters. I'm going to take a picture right now, but probably won't post them until tomorrow since I'll be busy for most of the day.

Thanks Sarah for my gifts :hug:.

Mickey Mouse clubhouse coloring book
Sidewalk Chalk
Donald figuring with lion
Mickey and Donald race cars
Life saver gummies

My ds is playing with the Donald and Lion figurines now and eating the goldfish as breakfast! Thanks!

To Laurie's ds from my ds: "Thank you for the gifts! I really like Donald and the Lion!:woohoo:"

Hooray, I'm so glad he liked it!!! With no Disney Store close, it was hard finding Donald Duck (you'd think with it being his 75th?? birthday this year, this would have been easier). I had my fingers crossed that he didn't already have those toys!!!!

My package came sometime last week, but I didn't open it until today!! Apparently my DH was in a frenzy of dinner preparations while I was still at work one day and tossed the envelope on a shelf in our library (no, we aren't very fancy schmancy, just didn't need a living room, so we call it the library).

I just got home from Palm Springs where my DH and DD still are for my MIL 90th birthday bash (they must not want her to get to 91, it was 114 today!!!) and my DH told me about the package when I called to let him know I got home alrigth.

SO, I got my package from the lovely Brianne, which was cool in and of itself as I did Mouse Adventures with her and think she is a delight.

So THANK YOU BreezY!!

I got a:

1). A tinkerbell watch with a lime green strap. I have been oogling them everytime I go to Disney. Lime green really IS my favorite color

2) Mickey cooking utensils, a spatula, whisk and pancake mold/cookie cutter.
and measuring spoons. Again, just perfect, I have the mickey collander, and have checke dout the other mickey cooking stuff. Love them.

4). A lime green mickey head keychain, had just lost mine.

5). and finally a postcard from DL (why didn't I think of that?) and a couple maps and schedules!!


Thank you so much Brianne, I feel so lucky and spoiled!!!


I just hope my DD9 grows up half as darling as Brianne!!

THANK THANK THANK YOU!!!

A Mickey and Minnie Tote filled with
-A brightly-colored beach towel, decorated with super-cute butterflies, bees and lady bugs
-A spray bottle fan, perfect for these hot days
-A very soft Eeyore stuffed toy, with a squeaky tummy
-Raspberries and Cream body lotion--great for my very dry sun-kissed skin
-A Purplish-Pink bath scrubby--Thank goodness, because the one I have is on its last legs
-Blue Raspberry Lip Smackers--to make me kissable


But the very best...................


-A Kirk Wall (aka Billy Hill) Trivet for my kitchen!!!!! Now I can see my boyfriend every day! :lovestruc

-A spray bottle fan, perfect for these hot days
-A very soft Eeyore stuffed toy, with a squeaky tummy
-Raspberries and Cream body lotion--great for my very dry sun-kissed skin
-A Purplish-Pink bath scrubby--Thank goodness, because the one I have is on its last legs
-Blue Raspberry Lip Smackers--to make me kissable


But the very best...................


-A Kirk Wall (aka Billy Hill) Trivet for my kitchen!!!!! Now I can see my boyfriend every day! :lovestruc

I received my gift yesterday from Sarah!!!

I didn't open until this morning since I got home really late and was too tired, but I love my items.

-I got an Eeyore umbrella (needed this since I lost my Mickey umbrella while at Disney World).
-A Cheshire Cat mug (Cute) &
-Daisy pen w/koosh ball like hair sticking out (the baby loves this).

She managed to get an item for each of my fav characters. I'm going to take a picture right now, but probably won't post them until tomorrow since I'll be busy for most of the day.

Thanks Sarah for my gifts :hug:.

ETA: The items were from MotoXPrincess Sarah. I just remembered we have 2 Sarah's.

I'm glad you like them! :thumbsup2

My package came sometime last week, but I didn't open it until today!! Apparently my DH was in a frenzy of dinner preparations while I was still at work one day and tossed the envelope on a shelf in our library (no, we aren't very fancy schmancy, just didn't need a living room, so we call it the library).

I just got home from Palm Springs where my DH and DD still are for my MIL 90th birthday bash (they must not want her to get to 91, it was 114 today!!!) and my DH told me about the package when I called to let him know I got home alrigth.

SO, I got my package from the lovely Brianne, which was cool in and of itself as I did Mouse Adventures with her and think she is a delight.

So THANK YOU BreezY!!

I got a:

1). A tinkerbell watch with a lime green strap. I have been oogling them everytime I go to Disney. Lime green really IS my favorite color

2) Mickey cooking utensils, a spatula, whisk and pancake mold/cookie cutter.
and measuring spoons. Again, just perfect, I have the mickey collander, and have checke dout the other mickey cooking stuff. Love them.

4). A lime green mickey head keychain, had just lost mine.

5). and finally a postcard from DL (why didn't I think of that?) and a couple maps and schedules!!


Thank you so much Brianne, I feel so lucky and spoiled!!!


I just hope my DD9 grows up half as darling as Brianne!!

THANK THANK THANK YOU!!!

I am so glad you liked your gifts, Amy! I saw that watch and mom and I both thought of you and the Dis Divas!
:flower3:


I got mine today in the mail as well; Thank you so much, January!!!

I got an amazing purple Tinkerbell travel coffee mug (my old Tinkerbell travel mug was getting ready to retire), a Buzz Lightyear and Little Green Men snow globe (my favorite characters since it was the first attraction I worked on!), a Buzz Lightyear mini blaster key chain (I need the practice...my aim is horrible on that attraction), and a nifty Snack Crazy recipe book (I can't wait to try to make some citrus nuts...pecans and wlanuts with lemon and orange...yum!)

I really appreciate the gifts, January, thank you very much! I love them all :yay:

Hope everyone had a magical 4th of July that sparkled with joy! I was in Huntington Beach (got there at 7 AM to get a decent parking spot and claim my spot on the beach!) and had a lot of fun! I have been busy with biology...one of the more difficult of the classes I am taking for the summer...plenty of studying that's for sure!

Have a fantastic week, ladies!

An adorable Tink bag! I LOVE purses!
A Mickey Mouse Pen
A set of cards from Disneyland
A captain Jack Sparrow pez dispenser
A Mickey Mouse long sleeve T-shirt!
Some Disney "Are you smarter than a 5th grader" trivia cards
A DL water bottle holder caribeaner? I think?
A DL anteana ball with what appears to be a sombrero!

Those are the items that are coming to mind! I opened it at 1 am after working my second double in a row so I could have missed something. Thank you so much Amy Sue! I really love everything you sent and I am excited to try some of the Disney Trivia cards!

Ty and my packages just went to the post office a few minutes ago, and so are now officially on their way.

As for the wonderful package that Linda sent me, it included:

*A pink tote bag with Stitch and my name embroidered on it
*A set of two Minnie Mouse dishtowels that are way too cute to ever use for such a mundane task like drying dishes
*An Ariel Disney Pin for my pin trading (or in my case displaying) collection
*A lime green mickey head keychain

I got a lovely surprise just now! My homeowner, Sarice, left the box inside my door and I had missed it because I have so many other boxes. She knocked on my door tonight (there is a door that connects to the inside of their house, but it's down the basement stairs... I'm in the basement area) to make sure I saw it. It's from Katie! I got...


a lovely hand-written card
a pair of yellow, orange and red Asian themed Mickey cropped pajama bottoms
Mickey undies in a Mickey ears shaped package
a mug that Katie thought looked "artsy" for me (it is and it rocks! I was eyeballing it during my last DL trip)
inside the mug was 2 Mickey pens
and a Mickey keychain
a Fantasia sorcerers cap blue pin lanyard w/ pin traders pouch and charm that says "Mickey's Pin Festival of Dreams"
a retro Mickey tin
inside is a variety of awesome holographic stickers, some modern and others are vintage
and 4 pins inside: Mickey dressed up as Jack Sparrow, Mickey in front of the DL Main St. train station, Mickey as the Fantasia sorcerer in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, and a fat Mickey (I'm not sure what the PC term is for the inflated looking characters)
a Mickey Pez dispenser w/ cherry and grape flavored pez candies
a 2 pack Mickey Shortbread rounds


Thank you MamaKate!!!!!!! :hug:

I've provided photos for your viewing pleasure and one extra for your entertainment. Pardon the messy apartment... I have a really good excuse ;) I took them on my kitchen counter because that's the only vacant surface available at this present moment in time.

I am glad that you like the outfits, my DD reassured me that little kids don't care about the stitching as long as the skirt twirls!! I still am very unhappy about the one since my machine decided to jam it's feeder dogs!! (silly name, got it from the manual). But, I am trying to let it go!! Claire picked the fabrics and the order of the stripes in the skirts)
Oh, and thank you for posting the pics, I can't wait to show my DD the pics of the twins!!!

SarahBack when I first started doing exchanges, I had one that the kids dug into and ran off with some of the goodies before I could post about it!! I realized I wasn't the only one to have that happen to, and since then I always include a "packing list" in my exchange of all the items sent. (Well, I shouldn't say always. Sometimes I forget to!)

But it makes it easier for the person receiving to post everything they got without having to do it from memory or worrying about stuff going missing thanks to their kids or other family members. lol

thanx again Amy & Claire!

So CUTE!

It will be a week or so before Madison opens her box and I can report what she got from January. Her schedule is not meshing with mine and her Daddy wants me there when she opens it. We're shooting for one night next week.

Adaleah was so excited about giving the Tinkerbell stuff to your daughter!! Of course, we did have some "I really like that, can I keep it" moments....... :rotfl: So we surprised her for her birthday with the same Tink doll!!!!
I'm glad she liked all of her stuff!!!!!

I really liked the idea of adding the kids to this exchange until....... my kids realized they would be getting a package in the mail as well!!! :woohoo:

Everyday since we mailed ours off........is my package coming today? Has the mail come yet? When do we get ours?........ they're driving me NUTS!!!!! :scared:

Is anyone else having this problem???? :confused3

Thanx for all the sweet comments on the twins!! Those outfits are the bomb-diggity!!! :thumbsup2:rotfl2: Sorry for laughing, but that just sounds so typical of kids. Actually, that's how I am when I'm waiting for a package. I check the mail excitedly every day. So who can blame them. :rotfl: Not that it makes having to listen to it any easier. ;)

Awww, bless her heart! :goodvibes



Thanks! I figured yours had gone out, but it's nice to have confirmation. :thumbsup2




:rotfl2: Great pic! :thumbsup2




Back when I first started doing exchanges, I had one that the kids dug into and ran off with some of the goodies before I could post about it!! I realized I wasn't the only one to have that happen to, and since then I always include a "packing list" in my exchange of all the items sent. (Well, I shouldn't say always. Sometimes I forget to!)

But it makes it easier for the person receiving to post everything they got without having to do it from memory or worrying about stuff going missing thanks to their kids or other family members. lol





Awww, they are too precious! The outfits look positively adorable on them!!! ::yes::

I totally forgot that I also got glow sticks, a friend magnet, stickers and a tote bag that smashes down really small! Thanks again Amy Sue!

I just got the bestest package from my friend Tina!

Oh my, what a treat it was!

First off, the box was very stylishly sealed with lime green duct tape. :thumbsup2 I loved it!

Then, when I opened it, it was overflowing with some modeling clay and a parachute for my boys. Tina was so kind to send these to us. :hug:

Then, the fun for me began as I put together my card. That's right, my card was a Mickey puzzle that I had to solve before I could read it. How unique, and fun. I was giggling like a schoolgirl as I played with it. :cheer2:

Then I found the most wonderful items for my kitchen, Mickey measuring cups (LOVE them!), two Mickey parts towels...soooo cute!, and a box of Mickey and Pals shaped pasta. My pasta salad will be really festive the next time I make it! To top all of that off, there was a stuffed Mickey dressed like a chef. He is so cute, and I love him! :cool2:

The last things I found were 2 Billy Hill and the Hillbillies cds! I can't wait to listen to them! :banana:

Thanks Tina!!! What a great package! :woohoo:

GUESS WHAT I GOT, GUESS WHAT I GOT!!!:yay:

My package from Miss Cheryl!:cutie:

My favorite character is Minnie, and I got so many nice Minnie things from her. Let's see, a round Minnie mini-bean bag (these must be new as I have not seen one and I shop at DL almost monthly:laughing:), a super cute red Minnie tee with the retro raised embroidery that says "Minnie 1928" with her in the middle. Fun pin of her in polka dot shorts and a spring neck (haven't seen this unique pin, either), a matching red Minnie visor (I love visors, much more than hats-how did you know this?:confused3) and simply the cutest ever plush Minnie made out of sock/sweater like material. She is different, yet very special and will fit in with my basket of Minnie plushes like a charm. ;) And a nice card. I LOVE everything.

I know what you guys mean about waiting for the package. I really didn't expect it to be a big deal, but as the recipients Bree and I had got their gifts and she got hers and so many others got theirs, I started feeling like a spoiled child, pouting and whining..."where's myyyyy package"....Now that my gift arrived, I know I truly am a spoiled child...errr...adult. Thank you so much, Cheryl.:lovestruc

I wasn't able to participate in this one, but believe it or not, I am actually already planning for the Halloween exchange. I love Halloween, in case there's anyone out there who didn't know that, and I know I'm going to go way over budget on that one. :rolleyes1 :rotfl2:

According to my tracking number, my person's package was delivered today around 11:00am!!! :)

It was!! Thanks so much Courtney! I was at DLR with Katie and her family when it was delivered! Had to take my friends from MN!

I was so excited, it was everything Pooh! I LOVE Pooh bear. I have since an early age.
I was so very distraught when I went to do Ethan's nursery, I already had the plan that it would be all Pooh Bear. Well, Sears had had the licensing for years, and discontinued it just in time for me to try to get one. Well, they hadn't given the licensing to anyone else yet by the time he was born. So, I bought Pooh items to go with primary colored balloons as his theme. I got a pullstring lullaby Pooh to hang from his crib. When he was born 6.5 weeks preemie, we were allowed to put one item in his isolette, and it had to stay there. It was his Pooh bear. He still has it, along with a large collection of them, and every once in awhile I see him sleeping with it.

Sorry about the tangent, I was just wanting everyone to know how special Pooh bear is to me. And, it's not as easy as it used to be to find Pooh items. And Courtney sent me a whole box full all wrapped in colorful tissue!

I'll post the list tomorrow, I need to get to bed. I'll send a picture to a friend here on the boards so they can post it for me.....I've still not been able to post pics!

Thanks again, Courtney!

Toby thought that it was so funny. "You stressed to get them out on time and they get returned." Nice, supportive, huh.

Only it's from something that I'll say out loud to myself, or the best is when I think something funny and laugh out loud. I feel like a dork when I'm in my car at a red light and it happens. Then I get weird looks. They're just jealous.

Amy Sue I LOVE those dresses! SOOOO cute! Good job!

And Laurie the twins look ADORABLE in them!

Bridgette LOVE your pics! You got some great stuff and I agree you fit in well! Can't wait to meet you in Oct! You seem like a fun gal! ;)

I agree, the twins look adorable and Amy Sue.... mad props to you! You crafty genius!

Thanks! I took that pic for all of you. I can't wait to meet you too! I think I'm fun.... I had a blast with myself in DL last week!

Ty got an amazing package today from Madison/Cheryl.

I am going to have to wait until he goes to bed to pry everything away from him and take some photos, but here's a quicky overview.

An adorable stuffed pluto dressed like Davy Crockett
Handy Manny coloring book and special triangle shaped crayons that are made for toddlers
Light up Mickey Mouse head glowing spinning toy
Toy car with Mickey at the wheel
Phinneas and Ferb trading pin
P&F t-shirt
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse puzzle,
A viewmaster with Handy Manny slides
Handy Manny book

Ty had so much fun unpacking the box and he absolutely adores the light up Mickey and will probably fall asleep holding it. Everything is totally perfect and amazingly Cheryl and Madison managed to find all sorts of things that he didn't already own, even though it feels like he owns every toy on the planet!

So I was looking through yesterday's mail this morning and I found a letter from Mickey (Boo Bear's mom). She was the person I sent a gift to. She sent just the nicest thank you card, it was even a card that Boo Bear had made! It really made my day to know that she enjoyed her gift, even though I had disney ship it so it didn't have all the fun little goodies that most of the gifts included. So, thank you Mickey - I love the card and it brightened my day!

Oh bummer. I'm sorry that happened Lisa. Thanks for updating me.












Wow, several more fun arrivals I see!!!!! :banana: :cool1: :yay: :woohoo: :dance3: Super job everyone. I love the pics and reading about all the goodies.

We have about 14 arrivals left, so if you haven't received your package yet, please don't fret. I'm sure it will be there soon. :wizard:

So I was looking through yesterday's mail this morning and I found a letter from Mickey (Boo Bear's mom). She was the person I sent a gift to. She sent just the nicest thank you card, it was even a card that Boo Bear had made! It really made my day to know that she enjoyed her gift, even though I had disney ship it so it didn't have all the fun little goodies that most of the gifts included. So, thank you Mickey - I love the card and it brightened my day!

Sarah

Sarah, I'm not sure what all she put in the card, but she missed out on a lot of her childhood because life happens sometimes and nobody can ever determine how young it hits some of us. She and I have this joke that goes on between us that we get each other things and we can't keep the surprise, so she rarely is ever surprised by anything. She said that when she got your package with the pajamas, she cried because she remembered what it felt like to be a kid again. Now she won't let me spoil any surprises for her, like what I got her from DL ;) She's having a very hard time with me having just moved 2300 miles away. So, I thank you as well. She has an electronic learning curve... I'll be working with her on the whole disboards thing once I visit home at the end of August.


My mom said everything was in a Tinkerbell gift bag and wrapped in different colored tissue paper. I love everything and can't wait to go pick it up and see it in person. I really like the earings and the pin, it's one that I don't have yet. The note pad and pen will be great at work. Boo Bear, tell your mom THANKS! :thumbsup2

As it was posted above, she'll be on here before we know it! I'm really glad you like your things. I actually got all of the stuff for her and sent the box, but there was lots of phone communication. I told her what I saw at DL and she told me what to get. She thought the pin was hilarious, as do I! I also liked the antenna topper so I threw that in without her prior consultation, however, she completely cracked up when I told her. It's kind of funny because our two exchangees were a collaboration. She mailed mine out on the 6th from Indiana and I really really REALLY wish my person would get her goods already!

My mom wanted me to try to find you a belly button ring, but I looked everywhere and couldn't find one, so I hope the earrings were good. She said to get those instead of dangly ones.

Anthony says: "You are very nice, and you gave me very nice presents. Thank you!!" "I really love all of them".

Mom says thanx too!!!

I'm so glad he liked it!! Whoo hoo! Zoe looked at the picture and said "wow, he looks so happy!" We had fun shopping for him. I assumed (and after thinking about it realized maybe I shouldn't have!) that you'd know Zoe was my DD, but JIK, she is!

I know I can't wait until I can teach her how to use the boards. She is more excited about 2010 than I am I think. I miss her :sad1:

Hi Everyone!

We received 2 boxes today, one for Raine and one for me. We made a decision to wait to give Raine her box until Selena's arrives that way there's not jealousy between the 2 of them. Good thing I got it when she was gone so she doesn't know it's here. ;)

Thank you so much Jane and Tyler!

I don't know how you were able to do this exchange and move a house in less than 2 weeks.

Here are some pics of the great things Jane sent me:

In the box I received:

A super cute polo shirt with Grumpy embroidered on it :cool1:
A red picture frame with stars (Jane I agree I think Mickey when I see it too)
Stickers (great for my scrapbooking:thumbsup2)
A reusable Mickey bag (can't have enough of those, I use them for everything)
A bag of chocolate was also in the box :thumbsup2

I'll post again when Selena's box arrives and then report w/ pictures on their boxes.

Thanks again Jane. :hug:

Claire says Thankyou.

The box was opened and dispersed so quickly, let me think.
In it was a multi opening photo frame, perfect for Disney character pictures
A little Disney Fairy doll, Fawn.
A color your own sticker kit...the kid is like me, LOVES her crafties!!!
And two sets of Disney Fairy stickers.

I am pretty sure there was something else, just slipping my mind at the moment.

Thank you very much, Claire is quite excited!!!
