I was so very pleased with my secret gift!! Thank you, thank you, and from the bottom of my heart thank you.

And Twyrch you were so wonderful to put this together and be so patient with those of us who are a bit computer challenged.

*Horns and Trumpets Blowing*

As promised, it is now time to reveal who everyone's secret pal was. There were 3 people who did not send in gifts for one reason or another... In those instances, I stepped in and gave a gift to their secret pal, so those people will see my name next to theirs.

There were a couple others who received two gifts... That is because your gift was late and I didn't want you to be without a gift, so I gave that person a gift and then turned in your secret pal's gift when it arrived. In these cases, my name will be in parenthesis (Twyrch).

Now that I've thoroughly confused and confounded everyone, on to the reveal! :grin:

Zeb! I would have never guessed.
Thanks for the pictures. Did you ever get around to recovering the memory from your broken camera? I would love to have these pictures as desktop backgrounds :D

Jingle, thanks very much for the artwork, have it set as my desktop now.

John, still working on it, but you'll be the first to know when I get the pictures off it. Trust me it's been annoying me for some time, since I have most of my pictures from this year on there... Sydney, Townsville, Guam, Malaysia. I took alot of pictures this year. Though I never got any better than that morning I got the pics I sent to you.

Thank you, Cosmic Ash for the beautiful fairy. She's absolutely lovely!

Zeb,
I'm glad you liked it and I'm honored that you made it your desktop. It was my first try at that kind of thing! :grin:

Yes... yes... Silverstorm got 3 gifts this year. What can I say? Next year, I will have to watch the posts better. :)

Silverstorm replied to a cheeky comment Ghosty said and her comment fell in between 2 people asking to be added to the list. I accidently added her twice... that meant she gave and received 2 gifts. Then one of her gifts was late, so I gave her a gift as well, so she wouldn't feel left out and then her secret gift arrived the next day.

She's very lucky, indeed. ;)

Yes and this lucky lady is so grateful to all of you for the wonderful gifts! :cloud9: Sorry for the late reply, I went away for a few days for one last Christmas hurrah with some friends.

MamaB your video was so awesome! It made me smile and laugh and Mona is just adorable. I guessed that it was from you, since you are very talented at those. Thank you!

Twyrch it was very kind of you to send me a gift even though you knew I would already have one. I will forever treasure the poem. You are so multi-talented and it was gift enough that you set all this up.

Romelia, you are a very talented poetess. It was a very wonderful gift and I have added it to my notebook.

And thanks to Ghost for being the catalyst for my multiple gifts! :D
