Secret Santa 2014! - Main thread

Recommended Posts

I think it's time I should start worrying about no USPS updates. I sent my box of gifts on November, 24th and it doesn't seem it has arrived in the US yet. I guess it's possible - I wish sb at the post office had told me it was going to be sent by ship! I only discovered it later through tracking and was shocked that it's actually going this way for all the money I paid!

Now I'm just praying the tracking updates finally and it arrives in the US in time to be delivered before Christmas :( I'll be devastated and ashamed if it doesn't show up soon - I tried so hard to send it quick and it turns out to be a disaster.

I'm really sorry, Santee, you have to wait for your present so long :'(

Um. I just found a dead crow on the sidewalk. I was sure it was a sign of death (my grandmother is very ill), but I looked it up, and finding a dead crow on the road is actually *good* luck. (Yeah, heavily Irish influence on my mom's side of the family. Her mom was all about signs and superstations.)

 

Edited because sidewalk, not sideway.

If I check a tracking number 40x per day, does that mean it will ship faster? It was received by my local post office yesterday - I think that means it should arrive soon? USPS is killing me too, ladies.

 

This is the LAST item I need for my Santa! D: Everything else is wrapped and ready. I can't believe it is already the 12th. :santa:

Thank you ladies for your warm wishes and prayers. After 2 weeks, I have my dogs back!!! I had given up on getting them back and at my daughter's request we put up more flyers. This time I added a reward with be given. That did the trick. A lady called about an hour later saying she had both dogs. When we met her she only had one and said her neighborhood had the other and was refusing to give it back. Well to make a long story short because it was mad drama we ended up getting the cops involved. The guy basically wanted us to buy back our own dog and pay for shots-!yes shots that he had given the bichon. Plus he took her out of state to get the shots. Maybe because 32 vets and all the SPCA was on alert. Both of our babies are doing fine. The police said around this time of year people take dogs and wait for flyer with reward to give them back. If not, they sell them. I think this guy was getting ready to sell them. Where he said he found them at, there was no way they could have gotten there on their own. So yea... DRAMA but it had a happy ending.

 

So now I am happy again, lol. I have wrapped both gifts and will send both packages in the mail tomorrow.

I'm SO happy for you! I've been thinking about your situation since you came and told us about it so I'm so glad to hear that you all have been reunited!!

USPS tracking is S*** right now. I've been worrying about a package I sent Sat. night be cause last night it hadn't even been received by my post office according to tracking (I used the drop off), this morning it was marked as delivered on the other side of the country (which means no PO in all of that process scanned it, good thing I paid for F'in Tracking GRRRRR). Hopefully your gift is going through the same thing.

Just wanted to thank everyone for being so awesome about sending us your tracking numbers! The spreadsheet is filling up quickly as we get into the last few days of shipping :) :)

 

ETA: And if you mailed and have not sent your tracking # to an organizer, please do so asap. It's a requirement this year!

@@Jac13 I am so happy you have your dogs back!  It made me sick to my stomach to imagine your loss when they went missing.  It's a good thing you got the police involved.  At least now there is a record in case those people are involved in other dog-nappings.  

 

I'm so excited to hear about all the shipping.  It means more reveals!  The reveals thread makes me feel like I am opening ALL the presents.   :D

Is it slightly ridiculous that I am constantly refreshing packagetrackr to see if my santee has received her packages? Sheesh!

QUESTION FOR ALL YOU SANTEES - EVEN IF YOU ALREADY RECEIVED YOUR PRESENT!!

 

If you received a package that had, say, a Naked Palette (not basics, but Naked or Naked 2 or Naked 3) but it was not in a box...but was CLEARLY NOT USED...would you be ok with that??

 

Second (maybe better) question for those of you who work at Sephora or SiJCP, or [email protected]@bluemustang and @@v0ltagekid come to mind...if you have extra UD palette boxes, would you let someone have one if asked for it?

 

Thanks!!!

I think it's bugging my dad that I keep texting him everyday asking if I got a package in the mail or not.

Also @ I don't think a missing box is a deal breaker.

Definitley not a big deal, as long as it isn't used. If it IS used, just a "swatched" warning would be nice :P

No box would be fine with me.  The box would be coming off anyway!

    • Actually, people always spend plenty of time to remove makeup, have your ever tried the fast way to do that. If you never see, just look at here, a ultrasonic facial device has a powerful function to remove makeup effectively and quickly. 😘
    • wow, so cool! It is wonderful skin care tips. Love it!!!
    • Hi, I use anti-aging serum from anahitaonlinestore.com. It works really great for me. I use it after cleaning and before applying my daycream. I guess everybody has to find what really works for them.
    • I've recently become more and more invested in makeup but the only problem is I can't get my make up to apply smoothly, especially over my nose. I've tried using a motorised and have a good cleansing routine for my face but when eve I try to put my foundation on it becomes all caky around my nose (I use bare minerals powder) Can anybody suggest anything to stop tis happening. 
    • This seems to be true of Damien. We have completely stopped traveling somewhere far since we got cats. There are three of them now. We made a special backyard house for them - https://thepetsmaster.com/best-outdoor-cat-houses/ They can live there for several days if we leave for a short while. However, one of us always stays at home during the holidays. This is our price as the owner of wonderful cats.
