Just a reminder that Friday is the 12th...which means that if you are mailing Saturday because that is when you get a day off and can get to the post office, no problem, but if you are mailing after that for some reason, could you let me know so I won`t be wondering if it got lost in transit...

Seven people have gotten packages in already...

T -

I`ve got 4 "items" done and two (or three?) that are prepared (i.e. half done). Keeping fingers crossed would slow me down - but I`m hoping for a Thursday finish. I`m more than a bit chagrined to be so late...

You know, Theresa, I don`t know if this is the right place to put this message for you, BUT...for days I have felt the need to say this!

I wasn`t able to play in HUGe this year, but I still feel that it`s important that you know how much I appreciate what you do for all of us. Because of your Christmas spirit, HUGe is becoming a wonderful tradition that Elann, and Ann, and ALL OF US can look upon with feelings of what the holiday is about...friendship, giving from the heart, and knowing that the world will be a better place when we jointly make the effort to make others happy. Even if we`ve never been in on HUGe (or have had to take a year off!), you have ensured that we can rely on this special event from year to year. You are good, T. And your heart should swell with pride for what you give to us.

Kudos and a hug!

T, Billie has said it eloquently. I don`t know how you manage to manage HUGe when you have so many other things going on. It`s so much fun to read all the posts about HUGe and the planning that goes on with it. Many thanks for adding to the feelings of community we have here at the Elann Chat Group.

Hear! Hear!

This year`s HUGe is particularly nice for me. Several items in the package are perfect for what HUGe was intended to be (providing handy and lovely gifts for people on my gift list), and several really nice gifts that are just right for ME. This year I don`t have as much time as usual to pull it all together. How wonderful that my elann buddies can all pitch in on this.

Way too nice for a poop-pen, that`s for sure, but it`s fun to threaten you guys.

I think it`s amazing that T can get 30-some-odd places filled with women who want to craft and swap. And every year it works. And gets better. I think it says a lot about T and y`all.

Awe, you guys...(Blushes and scuffs toe in dirt while looking down modestly)

I really love doing it and I am so glad it means to much to people! And thanks especially for letting me know that even people who aren`t participating in a given year enjoy it. This is a wonderful boost for me on a day when I really really needed one!

Now, everyone go post the pics!!!!

T, smiling at her friends.

Yeah... and not only did I not participate this year (due to my I-hate-my-house-self-pity), I didn`t even go help T and we`re practically neighbors now. Yeesh. You`re awesome, T. If I live here next year you can count on me to help you pack it all up one Saturday afternoon!

Peace,
Jean
