I opened it tonight...It's a DVD for an indie flick called The Fly Room that I ordered for my boss! I didn't realize it was being shipped from Paris! I'm glad you made that comment Jess, otherwise i would have given my boss her gift late!

MattHas was my secret Santa this year! I received my package last night!

There was a nice note, and 4 wrapped gifts! I wish I had stalked my Santee better, but hopefully he likes what I sent him. :)



Matt sent me a FashionABLE scarf (Jewel's tweeted/promoted their products http://www.livefashionable.com), a rainbow ornament from a local artisan, test tube shot glasses (since he knows I'm working on a biomedical sciences PhD), and these tiny Forest Spirit figurines from the anime Princess Mononoke (I already spread these around my desk in lab). See the attached pictures! :D

Very nice! But I don't see any pics?

I tried to cyberstalk my Santee but didn't find out much about them other than what I already knew. I hoped to make it a bit more personalized. Hope they kinda like the stuff anyways. Being the only Canadian on the board (I think) I put a bit of a Canadian twist on some of the gifts.  :)

Donna, when I originally posted, the pictures were too large as attachments so I embedded with Imgur. I re-attached them in case the Imgur images aren't showing up. :)

Chris was my Secret Santa and he sent me some guitar strings, a nifty chord book, some delicious bark (that my guests all ate on Christmas :( ) and a candy bar. :wub:

I forgot to take pics, though. :lolsad:

Speaking of.... So Donna Sue was my santee this year! I probably won't get around to actually posting pics, but I'll vividly describe everything she got me, haha!

I got a package of Canadian Smarties (kinda like M&Ms from what my taste buds can tell...) I've been rationing them as snacks at work. I got a book of "Quotes That Every Man Should Live By," I got a box of Mexican-inspired push pins.. they're little sombreros, avocados, and tacos. Some have been put to good use, but the sombreros will probably just end up being tacked on top of people's pictures on my corkboard, haha! I got a Tim Hortons (Canadian starbucks, I'm guessing?) mug-ornament. A 4-in-1 Pen tool that includes! A pen, a ruler, a Level (For all the important things I need to hang) and a screwdriver. And lastly, some seeds so I can grow my own spinach. What a haul!

Thanks Donna!  :wub:

You're very welcome Matt! Glad you liked the stuff!

Yes, Smarties are similar to M&Ms although we have those in Canada as well. Smarties rock!!! And Timmies is kinda like Starbucks but not quite as fancy... lol. Maybe more like your Dunkin Donuts?  :) Canadians love their Timmies, in fact I was just there this morning... lol.

I had smarties many times growing up.  I think they're better than M & M's, but that's just mho.

Donna Sue, I love Tim Horton's as well, got my morning coffee every day over the last week while in central Ohio for Christmas. Meeting spot for annual reunion with one of my dearest friends. We spent about three hours this year.  :wub:

My Santa was Jess,  :angel: will include photo of my surprises soon, need a little time setting up the picture, there is a definite Arizona theme. Wonderful place to visit and see the sights. I haven't been back since the mid-80's, need to go again.  :tumbleweed:

New Year's resolution: board more!  :)

My Secret Santa was Robby! He sent me a sweet card saying that I was one of his first EDA friends (which made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Haha). And it had a thumb drive full of angelfood attached (thsat I'm currently listening to). He even drew a sharpie angel wing on it (sadly, it wore off shortly after I opened it. :(). He also sent me Terri Sabol's children's book, which is so cute.

Thanks, Robby; I love them!!! :D

My Secret Santa was Sandy!  :santa:

I received a funny Christmas card, a Blessings Jar (which are all the rage I hear) and a lovely homemade banana bread! I love my gifts, thank you so much Sandy!!   :hug:

I've been neglectful and absent for too long! I'm baaack.

Thanks to Anna for the lovely makeup kit! Definitely comes in use for my nights out. Since I started working form home, I am always in pj's and workout clothes, so when I get the chance to actually put on adult clothes, wash my hair, wear big girl shoes and do make up, it's a treat!

Your welcome, Donna. I received one last year and I loved the idea! I hope you make good use of it!
