WOYWW? Amnesia and Patience

You see before you the last stages of assemblage and mailing of the Holiday Gift Mingle (aka Byhand Artists 12 Days of Christmas Gift Mingle)
I forget every year, as I come up with my brilliant giftie that every step has to be multiplied times 14- 12 for the swap, one to mess up and one for good luck!LOL!!!
Now patience must ensue as I wait for my gifts to arrive, and as I am the hostess, I don't get to share mine till the last day so all can share in the element of surprise.
I love gifts- surprises not so much.

We will now return this desk it's traditional last minute holiday mayhem !

I may find you similarly employed as I desk around this week.

Thanks in advance for visiting.
Comments and questions always welcomed.

  11. I am similarly empolyed, but not with swaps, which I kinda regret now it's too late! I can't see any last minute look to your desk at all...but then, I'm very used to how last minute can actually look on a desk!!

  14. Your gifts must be splendid if the envelopes are anything to go by.... I still don't get the idea, ... will you now receive 12 gifts from other people? Will we get to see what things you have sent (once the recipients have received them of course)?
    Have a great week,
