You can now send your gift out over the next week. I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's photos ::yes::

Sorry for the delay. So hectic at work and home at the moment!!

here are my amazing and very generous gifts:

I got:

A lush box of Thorntons, 3 delicious Yankee Tarts and a Tinkerbell flannel:

And for my Pixar toy collection I also got an adorable little bear from Brave. Which I adore!! Can't wait to see the film and Jack and I actually looked at these in the Disney store last weekend as they look like our cats!

He is wearing the Cadburys chocolate medal that I also got from my sender. Jack put it round his neck and I think it looks rather sweet. but will come off soon as I want to eat it!!

But then I managed to resist opening the presents until I got home.

http://i231.photobucket.com/albums/ee59/hildasmuriel/IMG_0566.jpg

I was soooooo lucky.... I had a smashing 101 Dalmatians writing paper and envelopes set and a great Piglet pen. Also some white chocolate covered strawberries - they nearly didn't last long enough to photograph!
Then I had 3 summer novels and a WDW Mickey bookmark - they look just the sort of thing I love to laze around and read on my summer hols. I am thrilled to pieces with all my things - BIG thank you to my sender. :love:

And the gifts in all their glory:

http://i133.photobucket.com/albums/q51/dolphingirl_album/DISBoards/SecretSummerSwap3.jpg

I got a zip up shopping bag, a Busy Scrapper book (I had a quick peek on the train yesterday and can't wait to have a proper look on Sunday), three packs with materials for scrapbooking or card making, a gorgeous dolphin brooch, which will find a home on my work jacket shortly and a set of small storage boxes, which will be very handy for sorting my jewellery supplies. Thank you so much dear secret sender. I love everything. I just ordered a mini photo printer from Amazon so all the scrapbooking things will be put to good use.

I'm so sorry that your present hasn't turned up Donna, I have sent several PM's to your sender, but none of them have been replied to. I hope they get in touch soon ::yes::

I might be making a wrong assumption here, so apologies if I am....

But...

I think maybe the exchanges need some rules on who can join. Like you need to be a member for X amount of time and have X number of posts before you can join in.

I know it's not 100% in the spirit of the DIS but I can't see many other options.....

You're right Victoria, thankfully this has only happened a couple of times since I've been organising these exchanges (it once happened to me too :(), but when it does happen it really bothers me. At the moment I feel like not bothering again with the exchanges, it doesn't take two minutes to let me know that you've got a problem

I bet it does Mandy.

We all love the exchanged so much, and really appreciate you doing them. But I can 100% appreciate how frustrating it must be for you.

Such a shame that occasionally someone comes along & ruins the fun. :(

Please don't blame yourself though Mandy. :hug:

Mandy, you do so well with the exchanges!
We shouldn't allow the minority to ruin it for the majority. Has everyone else apart from Donna received theirs?
Has the secret sender been on the Dis since the PMs have been sent?
(Would just hate to think someone had died or something and that's maybe why they haven't been back on?)

Hopefully the last presents come soon!

This is such a shame. We know for sure that one of the gifts has not arrived and we do not know whether or not another one has arrived. I wonder if those two are linked.

Ive never taken part (like torsie24 said I feel im still too much of a newbie to be involved so I do agree with her idea of x amount of posts x amount of time on the boards) but I have always enjoyed seeing what everyone got and all the happy pixie dust being sent and received....not your fault mandy you are nothing but awesome :flower3:

I have just caught up on this thread and if there is no genuine reason then the person should be ashamed. This is a thread where we all trust each qother enough to part with our money and buy a special gift. Its a shame when someone spoils things for everyone else and gives other newbies a bad name.
Many I would feel the same and would feel responsible but its not your fault and im sure donna knows that so pleeeaase dont blame yourself.
I just hope the person comes forward and has a genuine reason so we can all look forward to our next one.

It was my gift that was not recieved. It should have been sent out directly from amazon and for some reason their was an issue. I don't know what it was or why because it says that it should have been there on the 2nd of July at the latest. I just logged in the other day and replied to Mandy and logged back in today assuming that it was just late and my gift had arrived. I am really sorry for any hurt that I caused my recipient and Mandy because you should not stop doing this I should have made it clear that I wouldn't be online.

If my lady wants to email me so I can forward her the amazon details and because she might need to say to them that she didn't get anything my private email is nexttime@hotmail.co.uk

Seeing as you're meant to wrap the present, and include a card, sending it from Amazon isn't the smartest idea.....

I think it would be best if you PM Donna directly (diddldonna) Cee Cee, then you can sort it out between you

If you took a photo of your gift when you received it, then it would be nice to see it

Just wanted to say thank you Mandy for your efforts and for doing theses exchanges xxxxx
