Ah I guess I got missed out since I still haven't heard anything. Never mind, I was worrying about finding time to create a gift anyway! Maybe next year :)

Hmmm - I sent you a mail about this, but it might happen to others. My gift needs to be sent as an attachment, but the pm or the mail function will not let me do it. Is there an intelligent way to get it to you? :shrug:

If you want to send an attachment, you'll need to email Twyrch via regular email......You can't do this via pm/board email. :innocent:

Hi Twyrch,

I have just sent my gift to your gmail address.

Please let me know if you have not received it. I will check this thread again on 19th so I can send it again if necessary.


Thank you for organising this exchange. Now that the panic about 'what to give?', the worry about 'will they like it?' and the actual logistics of making the gift are over, I feel so much better! :D

I have really enjoyed making my gift, so thank you Twyrch. Your kindness at co-ordinating this exchange will make a lot of people very happy.



:)

Woo hoo - a gift for me!

I love it. So thoughtful, extremely appropriate and much appreciated.

Thank you secret pal (who I wil pm in a minute because even without the name at the bottom there was a HUGE clue in the wording :) )

Thank you Twyrch for organising this. Hooray for Twyrch :yay: Look at all these happy people.

What fun, I just hope my secret pal likes my gift as much as the lovely gift I have received,

I love mine! Thank you to my secret pal. I'm sure I know who you are, and I'm very impressed because I never knew you could do a .pdf. :-) Maybe I've got you wrong. Only time will tell.

Thanks, Twyrch. This was fun.
