Kristin -- no criticism of you was meant by my statement.  Just a bit of frustration since I'm trying to get Wendy's package together and I found three Wendys!  I gave up yesterday and put one together since today is her birthday.  I'll PM you for the Feb. user names. 

Kristin:

Hey Brigit-Carol. . .

I agree with you 150%.  The problem this year was that I didn't take over admin on the group until mid December so I did what I could with the limited time.

If there's a way for me to share a Friend with you let me know and I'll do so with all the Mailbox Surprise members.

Thanks.

Belfrybat:
Perhaps next year, sign ups would be better done in Nov/ early Dec. so January folks can receive their gifts on time?  Just a suggestion, not a criticism.

Good Monday Morning Everyone!

 

I just updated my name to include my user name, which is Modern_Mosaic_Mom.  :)  Sorry for the delay in response.  Life has been tumultuous as of late and I haven't sewn one single stitch since the New Year started.  I think I may have a hang over from completing a full quilt in the last 62 hours of last year.  :\  

I'm also re-organizing my apartment to better suit my life.  My small group has started meeting at my place and, until last weekend, I had a distinct lack of seating.  A friend gave me two HUGE couches so I had a mini-melt down this last weekend and moved it around, tearing apart my sewing area in the process.  Still getting the sewing area together, but the small group area is set up and functional (just in time for small group tomorrow night!!).  

Anyone who would like to add me, please do!  

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Aw, man.  I had already purchased fabric for Pat, since her birthday is coming up soon.  Oh well.  It happened to be fabric that I *really* liked myself, so now I get to keep it for myself.  :)

Kristin, please send me your likes/dislikes, etc when you get a chance. You joined group 1 as a replacement for someone else who dropped out, so I don't think we ever got your likes/dislikes.  Or, if we did, I appear to have missed them.

Hi Kristin,

This group #5 is different from the one you sent via PM. Brigit-Carol is new to this group and I have no info on her. Is it possible to send me an update with her info on a PM? Thanks. I just want to make sure it is correct. The original listed you in Brigit-Carol's place. Again, Thanks.

I am getting totally and completely confused with all these changes. I'm in Groups 4 & 5, so please re-send that info to me again as at this point I don't know what end is up. Also, it looks like another February birthday has been added to group 5? If so, that means 4 birthdays in the same week between the two groups.  I was already struggling with three, and at this late date, I really can't add a 4th until either very late in the month or early March. Sorry, but that is the way it has to be due both to my time and finances. 

And, Kristin - have you dropped out of all groups yourself?  You were in both of my groups (4 & 5) and now I can't find you anywhere.  And I'd already decided on what I was going to make/ send you as our tastes are similar.  Pits.

I totally understand and apologize for all the changes.  As I said in my last post, these are THE last and FINAL changes . . . unless somebody drops out all together.

Brigit-Carol -- Please disregard my PM to you.

 

I am still in a spot on Group #5 . . . and filling in where there might be drop outs throughout the year or as needed.

Alright, I'm disregarding your PMs, but I did respond, so I guess you disregard my response as well.

This is what I have for groups 4 and 5.  Who did  you replace in group 5 so I can take that person off?  Thanks.

Attention All --

I am really done with restructuring groups in here to keep everybody happy.  I've recently received some PM's expressing to me disappointment in the way I am managing the group.  I was doing my very best to keep the groups inside Mailbox Surprises equally weighted among the birthdays and also respected some members wishes for group assignments.  But it's become obvious to me that I can't make everybody happy.  I guess I am just too naive to understand people.

I have recently been contacted by a couple of Mailbox Surprise 2013 members have resurfaced after being dropped from the group.  Don't get me wrong . . . I think it's great that people want to participate . . . the more, the merrier is what I always say.

The point is, I am going to leave it up to the group to decide what to do from here.  I am done trying to keep everybody happy . . . as I said, I thought what I did to arrange the main group into sub groups was the fair way to organize the group but it's obvious not everybody likes it.

To that end, as it stands right now, the groups look like this ..........

Let me know what ya'll want to do.

I intend to still send something to everybody who signed up . . . that's just who I am . . . even if it is as simple as a card, sometimes it's the thought that counts.  

I have always held firmly to the thought that each one of us can do a little something to bring some sunshine and smiles to somebody's day.

Cheers
