Yay! There is a second item coming. Sorry they shipped them separately.


I love it! it came today. I'm figuring it's from you since there was no name or paperwork inside lol.


Yes, they both were. :)

It's been a tough year. I did not hear from 90% of people with tracking and most have not followed up and posted when they received. Such a bummer :(

For the record I message people and try to outreach to those I have not heard from to ensure they sent and to those that have not posted, if they have received. Can't always count on them ever answering either. Sorry for those that get stiffed, really sucks that people can do that. I don't get it, but it does happen. It's happened to me a few years too. The regulars are pretty awesome and will jump in and try to cover for those that don't follow through. Thank you.

Don't take on this disappointment! You've done MORE than enough to help facilitate this process, for several years in a row. Things happen and we try to give people the benefit of the doubt (myself included, as I had such a difficult year last year, that I didn't even realize/remember until this year that my cards never made it out!) We all say the same thing when we don't get an ornament - it's not about that! And it's not, it's just really crazy to me that people could sign up, get the ornament, and then not even be reminded to post a quick thank you... or, get an ornament from someone and not even be reminded that someone is waiting on their ornament. However, we know it all works out in the end. In my case, previous years make up for it, and I'm reminded just how awesome the ornaments are, that I already have from y'all!

Perhaps there needs to be some more limitations on the exchange - level of activeness, number of posts, previous successful participation in one of the exchanges. Not sure how it can be worked out. Then again, we think about how many successful years we've had, and perhaps this one was just a dud. Regardless, thank you for ALL the work you've put into both exchanges, this year and past years! It's much appreciated!!

I'm sure some of these people (like most) have logged off bfads for the year and forgotten all about it. We should use their addresses and send them letters of disappointment from Santa, lol.

I would be willing to send another ornament to someone that didn't get one. Just let me know.

I did forget to send my tracking number but the person that I sent to already posted that they received.

I would be more than happy to send out another one if you send me the name of someone who didn't receive
