Well, all the names have sent by PM! Please let me know if you did not get a name, or got more than one, because then I will be in trouble :unsure:

Please remember that they should be mailed by November 14 2012.

Please post on this thread when you have sent yours off, and when you have received one.

It would be lovely to see pictures of the ornaments you received if you can :yes:

Thanks everyone!! :D

Thank you so much Wendy! :hug2: My lovely package has just arrived, I got a gorgeous sparkly 2012 WDW ornament and one of my favourite Jim Shore Mickey ornaments, some candy canes, a Lindt Father Christmas, an aero mint Christmas tree, a very cute smarties chocolate penguin and some Cadbury snow bites! I have been very, very spoilt and I love it all, thank you again Wendy :hug2: I will put a photo up later when DH comes home as I can never work out how to do it on here although I can't promise all the choccies will be available to be photographed! :whistle:

Merry Christmas Lozzy!

I am so glad it got there. Sorry about not getting around to posting a response in a timely fashion. Things have been a bit crazy here at the planetarium. I had a big holiday show to program. Done! Phew!!!

I hope this new year brings you and yours comfort, happiness, health and joy.

The 'Skips got there package last week. DD Alex was home from the university for Thanksgiving. She thought it would be cool to be involved in the exchange so she went with me a few weeks ago to pick up the ornament and I wanted her to open the package from our own Dawn.

Dawn it was lovely. She was thrilled. We love the British touch to our tree thanks to the exchange. We have so many ornaments that have become a part of our tree decoration each year and love to remember our friends across the pond.

Dawn we loved the fantastic Mickey tissue paper that you used in the packaging. We got this lovely green (looks like British racing green) from Harrod's as well as the cute little Beefeater Bear. They are not on the tree yet. DD Alex will be putting them on when she gets back after final exams. We saved all of her special ornaments. She had to get back to school before the tree was completed.

Thank you again Dawn, and Merry Christmas.

Thank you John and Donna for my gorgeous ornament and the very scrummy chocolates. For some reason I haven't been able to get on to write anything.

My father-in-law is visiting at the moment and he keeps eyeing it up. If after Monday it has gone missing off the tree I'll know that it's been kidnapped and taken to South Wales.

Once again thank you so much it is gorgeous and we are keen to collect some more.
