Hello ladies :)
I've been updating my post from March 18th, where I wrote the list with all info about our sent/received exchange parcels.
Please, check the list and let me know if I missed something, ok?
There are many parcels travelling around the globe but I'm still missing posting confirmation from 2 friends... Easter is next weekend already!! I hope they posted and just forget to let me know..
I really wish our exchanges could go fully on time!! There's always someone who missed the deadline, someone who didn't receive a gift on time.. those who post on time, should also receive on time. If this would work, everyone would have their gifts for Easter!!! I've asked for this so many times, once again, please, fulfill your commitment.
I have something else to share with you, something that makes me a bit sad..
As you all know, on our Summer exchange, there was a problem with Lu's parcel to Eleana. It started badly because at first Lu took too long to post her parcel. When she finally did it, mail was lost, no one knew where it was.. and this was already by the end of 2012. Yes, I did mention it was a Summer Exchange.. from June.
2013 started, Lu had sent a second package to Eleana, again no one knew where the mail was..
Many of us got together and sent Pixie Parcels to Eleana :) To everyone who did it, I thank you for your kindness and friendship ♥ Eleana has received a few parcels but hasn't posted here, I hope she at least has written to you! Meanwhile, Lu's package also arrived to Eleana. Again, Eleana didn't post anything here, Lu hasn't received any email back..
Also from our last Christamas exchange, I sent a package to Tracey, on behalf of Brenda (who couldn't do it because she was having health problems). Tracey should send to Gislene and guess what? My package arrived and I never heard anything back from Tracey, Gislene also never received anything from Tracey...
I think I don't need to say much more.. we can all see this is not very nice, this is not how I would like our exchanges to go. The only reason I'm sharing this, it's because I'm going to be more restricted with who signs up for our exchanges and I wanted you to know why I'll do it.
One last request...
Be nice. You have received your friends package? I bet it made you smile :) So write to her, let her know her package has arrived safely, let your friend know that the gift she made with love won your smile =) Write back, say thank you, be nice. You don't have her email? You do have mine, ask, I will send. Takes 2 minutes of your day to return a smile to another freind :)
Let me clarify that this isn't a post to everyone, almost everyone has been awesome on our exchanges and I'm truly happy for it :D thank you ladies, you are amazing stitchers and friends :D But for those same people who make an effort and put their heart on our exchanges, I feel that it is my duty to "pull some ears" to those who haven't been there for them too. Try to make better, please. Thank you!!!!
