How's the shopping coming along ? Are you nearly ready to send out your present ?

Mine is wrapped and ready to be sent out, and I will probably send mine out early next week. If you are sending to or from Ireland, then please feel free to post it when you are ready, for the rest of us, we can start posting out from next Monday (12th), and if possible send it out before Saturday (17th)

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v491/MMM120/hallminnie.gif

Don't forget to wrap your gift with a message 'from your friend at the DIS' or similar (as it's a secret). Later in the week I will change this to a 'Sent/Received' thread and you can let us know when you have sent out your gift or when yours has arrived.

Please, please, please post a photo of your gift when it arrives, as we all love to see what everyone receives

I hope you all enjoy taking part in this exchange, and that you receive a lovely pressie

Mines ready to go :)

I'll be getting my Grandma to post it early next week, as I'm away until Friday at Center Parcs. As I'm away, my parcel may arrive, but I expect we'll get a card through the door. Unless I can submit an alternative delivery address Mandy?

I'll keep check from my holidays and I will try to get on-line to confirm that my gift has appeared :) Once I'm back home, I promise I'll pop some pictures on here :goodvibes

The door bell has just this minute rung. And outside was a Royal Mail man. I nearly jumped up and down with excitement (well I waited until I shut the door first!)

I have the most enormous box full of pressies - and am frantically trying to locate my camera before I open them.

I'll post again later.

Just wanted to say a massive "thank you" to my secret Halloween gift sender for my wonderful gift which arrived today:

this is the box which I received ....the box is really lovely and I was so excited to receive it:

http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c242/TotallyAngelic18/Photos2013.jpg

and then opened the box and found all of these lovely things:


http://i28.photobucket.com/albums/c242/TotallyAngelic18/Photos2014.jpg

a really cute Halloween Eeyore plushie, a cute little pumpkin bag with halloween choccies, a halloween party CD, halloween balloons and 2 gorgeous votives from Yankee candles, both of which smell divine. The CD and balloons will come in very useful for our Halloween party, and I will also light the votives on Halloween. Thank you again so much for the lovely things - this is the first DIS exchange I have taken part in and it has been really good fun. I may have to do the Xmas one now!

So whoever you are - big big thank you and an even bigger :hug::hug:

I will have to post my gift later in the week now as I put one of my things bought earlier "safe somewhere" and now I can't find it :rolleyes1. I will search high and low this evening. Tomorrow I am working a 12 hour shift so I will get it in the post Thursday morning.

10-13-2009, 03:47 PM
Okay- short story is ...I got my parcel.

The long version of this is......I was having a horrible day in work (whole other story :sad2:) when our postman turned up with a huge parcel to be signed for and - yeipee - it was for me.

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee59/hildasmuriel/100_2840.jpg

This was it after I had ripped it open with my letter opener. It was soooo exciting - there was a huge WDW box inside.

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee59/hildasmuriel/100_2841.jpg

Fortunately it was quiet enough for the next ten minutes I was able to open the HUGE pile of exciting prezzies inside. All safely wrapped in tissue and in another WDW box as well, in the case of the mug. Ohmigosh I got so many wonderful things.
During the lunch time I took it in the staff room and showed it off to everybody to lots of squeals of enthusiasm and several plaintive comments of "I want to receive presents from people I don't know". Then I had the fun of showing it off to my family when I got home.

Dear Secret Dis Friend, I can't really explain how much this meant to me. It actually turned my day around for starters. Secondly, because I am unlikely to ever visit WDW myself, it is enormously exciting to get prezzies from there. Just seeing the box made me start smiling. Thank you thank you thank you - you have actually made me quite teary. :flower3:

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee59/hildasmuriel/100_2842.jpg

And there they all are....... such a lovely mug, a fridge magnet, a limited edition Haunted Mansion Halloween pin (that will have a trip to its sister attraction Phantom Manor in just 2 weeks), a Mickey votive and a gorgeous cinnamon Yankee candle, an organza bag of Disney toiletries and a WDW notepad and pen. Soooo many lovely things. :love::love::love:

Lovely gifts Avvie. You'll have to post some pics of the cookies when you make them. :thumbsup2

Well I was on my way out this morning when the postie stopped me to sign for my pressie!! :banana:

It has been driving me crazy thinking of it sat in the car whilst I was shopping but I managed to wait until I got home to open it.....

You will all have to wait a bit longer as photobucket is slowly uploading the pics....:lmao:

I came home early from work today as I'm not feeling very well, and got a lovely suprise when the postie came late!

When I opened my parcel there was a brilliant light up trick or treat bag

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l212/ian8213/P1000963.jpg

which contained the following individually wrapped pressies and a card

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l212/ian8213/P1000964.jpg

I am still stunned by the treats I got, my secret sender has really gone all out on this one

http://i97.photobucket.com/albums/l212/ian8213/P1000967-1.jpg

I have received two halloween yankee candles and a holder, a bag of haribo treats, a tigger pen holder which is full of accessories and a Mr Potato Head Trick or Tater which is absolutely brilliant, I love him, he comes complete with glow in the dark eyes, a pumpkin, ghost sheet, fangs, nose, hat and feet, he is awesome. I am so going to buy him a box of accessories from WDW..

Thank you to my secret DIS friend, I am made up and you have cheered up my day, as you can see Poppy May was rather impressed too ...

Finally...here's my pictures of my wonderful exchange gift.

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/Rach066/DSC03881.jpg

Here's my gift all wrapped up in it's box!

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/Rach066/DSC03882.jpg

All out of the box and wrapped nicely...there's loads of them - very spoilt!

http://i305.photobucket.com/albums/nn235/Rach066/DSC03884.jpg

And there they all are...fantastic, thank-you sooo much secret sender! I have a Mickey & the gang cup (with a donation to Great Ormand Street Hospital also!), a Princesses key-ring, some cool Halloween clips, two Yankee Candles (they're Mango Peach Salsa and Clean Linen, both are lovely!), a Little Mermaid brush (totally cute!) and a chocolate ghost (who's now been eaten, yummy he was too!) and some jellies!

Extremely happy with my gifts, my secret sender has really excelled themselves - a massive :hug: to whoever you may be!

And as always, I'd like to add a HUGE thank-you to Mandy for organising yet another wonderful exchange. Can't wait to see some more gifts, it's soooo exciting! :yay:

Thank you thank you thank you to my secret sender my pressie is amazing and I love it all!!
The excitement this morning in our house is unbeliavable - as soon as the kids saw a box and a postman we were all bouncing :banana::banana:
It took a while for them to understand the pressies had come from a stranger but it didnt stop them munching the chocoloates and spreading the confetti all over my bed :rotfl2:

Anyways heres the pics
http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh9/bencamdej/Julyaug2009003.jpg

All wrapped up looked so pretty it was a shame to rip it open !! The card is going to sit on our tv till halloween its lovely !!

http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh9/bencamdej/Julyaug2009004.jpg

dd is doing her scary face and insisted on being on the picture so that the lady who sent her chocolate would see she loves halloween

I recieved a halloween lollipop - dd assures me it was yummy!! A pumpkin full of ghost chocs - again the boys say they were scrumptious. A pumpkin wind chime,my very first yankee candle a great pair of tinkerbell socks and a tatty teddy in halloween dress up.

http://i252.photobucket.com/albums/hh9/bencamdej/Julyaug2009005.jpg


Just need to say again a million thank yous we love it all x x xx
