Postby PhoenixRising » Wed Nov 08, 2017 8:51 pm

I apologize for being so far behind! I've given up my idea of grandeur thinking I was going to make a google doc... Maybe next year... :roll:
Here is what you need to know! This is our annual Christmas gift exchange. To participate please fill out the form below and email it to DDBBKringle@gmail.com . Since we're on a tight time frame this year, please try to get them to me as soon as possible! I'll get your Kringle assignment emailed back to you by the 22nd of November (two weeks from today). You'll go shopping for your Kringle, find that perfect gift and stick it in the mail! This year instead of giving you a time frame in which to do that, we'll just say "ASAP" on that as well! :lol:

Happy Kringling!

I'm working filling out the questionnaire. Been crazy here; have had my grandkids (ages 3 & 5) 24/7 for over a week now so my brain is a little fried. :shock:

No, it hasn’t :oops:

I completely forgot/didn’t think about the fact that I was traveling yesterday, and then all day today spending time with family. I should have down time sometime tomorrow to get it done!

Kringle assignments were sent out last Friday. I could add you in if we get another person wanting to join in as well, or if there is someone who hasn't shopped who'd like to swap people... I'd hate not to include someone but I've already shopped for my person.

My package went Priority Mail this morning. Yesterday I received a package and I think it's from my Kringle. I'm trying to wait til Christmas Day to open it, but I may cave! Cuz I'm the kid who used to unwrap her presents, then wrap them again....

LindaJ, thank you so much for the great Kringle gifts!

I received a giant bag of Reese's cups, an Amazon gift card, and the new Mary Wanless book. I am so excited to have the book; I had borrowed it from the library but ran out of time to read it. So much in it to digest, I definitely needed a copy of my own.

Plus, the book came in the neatest fabric gift bag. I love it!

I'm sure the bag of Smarties will improve my riding ability by leaps and bounds, and there is a lovely blizzard today so I can snuggle up tonight and read my Tana French book.

Even though I've been on this board and the old UDBB this is the first time I've participated in this exchange. It was fun shopping for someone I don't know and hoping I picked the right things!

I got my package from Sunshine2me yesterday, I didn't wait to open it. I was excited to see what was in that box from another horse lover.

I got horse treats (can never have too many of those), a pretty pinkish purple/gray scarf; which I can't wait to wear, a super soft cuddle duds top which I can definitely use, a lighted candle warmer and tarts for it, and a pretty card ! Sunshine picked just the right things for me.

Many Thanks to Sunshine2me

Merry Christmas

Thank you so much Hayburner! I got a beautiful fleece throw with seahorses on it, some boot socks, some bath bombs that smell wonderful, some equally wonderful smelling wax tarts, a beautiful scarf, and a chocolate horse candy. It was all very thoughtful and made my day special! Thank you again!

I got it today immediately sat and Opened it. I love it. Love the Cadbury milk chocolate, the riding diary, and a lovely cushion and throw.

Did I say how I love throws. This one is especially poignant as the horse on it reminds me of Beccot, who I recently had to say goodbye to.

Thank you so much.

PS it was delivered to a neighbor who only recently found time to bring it over
