    @FrictionPin, that photo is adorable!

    I wanted to send a shoutout to @SirKevbags who sent me some MMBs out of his own generosity. Original lot got lost and he resent them. As if that wasn't amazing enough they arrived tonight today on Christmas Eve.

    @margot, that's my youngest and his best friend. Both of which blatantly break the rules right in front of me, then I get that look....and it's all forgiven. :)

    I agree with @ACWWgal2011. I was hoping for a Baton Rouge or New Orleans store :(

    Why in Louisiana?..it would be better just over the border in Mississippi....Only reason for us to really buy from [email protected] is that there is no sales tax.

    Any interest in a Secret St. Valentine exchange in February '14?

    @Carlq Wow, you've struck gold! Looks better than an official set doesn't it? Lucky you :-)

    @rancorbait, I feel the same....and so does Mrs Q. She's so impressed, it's now proudly on display in the lounge, which she always swore would be a Lego-free zone! Mrs Q also claims to be worried that, after this, all my other gifts will be a letdown...she forgets how much I love Christmas morning! ;-)

    Just opened my secret Santa gift, the friends calendar. I love it so much - thank you to whoever sent it to me. Off to build it now whilst lunch is cooking.

    Thanks SS! Three polybags and a bag of 61 Black 1x1 modified with 4 studs. I'll be doing some MOCing with those.
    image and image. This was great! Looking forward to next year already!

    Funny thing is that now I know my Secret Santa's real name and address but not their Brickset name. :-)
  • SirKevbagsSirKevbags Fairy Land Member Posts: 4,030
    Thank you Secret Santa :-) I unwrapped a #60012 and a #70400 No building attempts have been made and being rather squiffy right now I know following instructions would be to big of a challenge.

    Please excuse my late posting. I actually received my Secret Santa package on 12/16, but being rather traditional, I held out until today to open it. Thank you @sandtherapy. #79001 nearly completes the series for me, and series 10 MF and Darth Maul clock are an added bonus. What a great experience!

    After seeing what others have done, I feel I could have done better for my secret giftee. Maybe this was practice for future years??

    So did the organizers hear from everyone? Did we get 100% received?

    Thank you to the organizers who put this together and to all of the Santas!

    Well everybody in the UK has now confirmed that they have received their gifts.

    Everyone in Canada (which wasn't a lot unfortunately) has received theirs.

    @rocao?

    Here is what I got. I do not know if it was from Brickset or Bricklink. If it was from Brickset, thank you! If not, then I have not gotten mine yet.

    So, when do we find out the identities of our Secret Santas? Or is that going to remain a secret? :D

    Nobody has contacted me about not receiving a gift, so I assume everything was received.

    I confess, I had @Sandtherapy. And I am still trying to find a Valentine Heart box from her wish list because I know I have some extras somewhere.

    I had @EKSam - it was quite challenging being told she didn't like Star Wars.

    At first, I was like, "there's non Star Wars Lego?". :O

    LOL.... this is like Secret Santas Anonymous ....

    Hi, I'm Legogeek, and I had @oansun as my recipient. I spilled the beans with him by contacting him when the package I sent wasn't delivered when it should have been (thank you USPS)...

    My recipient was @khmellymel, and I am delighted she is pleased with her gift. It is very rewarding to give a gift to someone you do not know. I will definitely take part in this again.

    @littletoki
    Thank you for all your thoughtful gifts. :-)) i loved it all. My 8 yr old's dentist was dressed up as Jack sparrow for Halloween, for the entire week, complete with eye makeup and evrything so my lo was super excited to get the pirates set. :-))

    Regarding Star wars, I LOVE the original trilogy, its the new 3 that I don't like. :-) (I just need Princess Leia and Jabba to complete the cast of main characters then I'm done, yeah I'm slow) :-))

    My receipient was @mrbradford and he was tough to buy for, not much posting history to go by either so I sincerely hope he loved his gift. :-))

    Apologies for my procrastination!

    Many thanks to my Secret Santa- @frictionpin!

    Love it all, especially the Christmas set. I built it on Christmas day and put it on display near the Christmas tree.

    Definitely looking forward to this next year. Sharing LEGO is fun :o) In addition, I'm up for a Valentines Switch, Easter Exchange, Summer Swap, and Thanksgiving Transfer!

    My recipient was @slovakiasteph who I have to apologize to...

    I posted mine yesterday and got mine last week! It came in a padded envelope (and I've had some bricklink orders in recently), so I didn't even realize until after I opened it that it was from my SS!

    ..especially with my lack of imagination regarding wrapping...

    Which made it so plain as to look like a simple BL package...

    And putting my name directly on the "return to" line to ruin any type of secrecy....

    ... and also for simply sticking CMFs into a ziploc baggie.

    I am sorry for my grinch/scrooge actions everyone.

    Apparently I'm still learning the true meaning of Christmas... I'll be better next time! :o)

    It's not "how" you do it, it the "why" that counts.... so you feel good inside. :-)

    I received #41051 and my daughter helped me build it and then proceeded to confiscate it. She informed me that since I don't use minifigures in my building that she will store it in her room. Little snot... That's ok... I have been sneaking out pieces she doesn't use.

    My giftee was @rocao

    I was going to post a pic of my minifigs, but I forgot to take one before I left on my travels! (@samiam391, I figured out that you sent them from your username and previous forum comments. Didn't think I would ever get the statue of liberty one! because I didn't want to pay six bucks for a minifig) :)

    Haven't seen any posts from my giftee.

    @flowerpotgirl, thanks SO much for the Creator set, I do really love it (perhaps more so because my boyfriend's reaction when I received it was... "where are we going to put that!? We don't have room for more Lego!" Teehee...).

    And my giftee was @Try001, I'm glad that you enjoyed your gift, I was nervous sending it that you wouldn't like it. I loved your wanted list, allowed me to do something fun (ie, not studying) for a bit!

    A belated thank you to my Secret Santa, who sent me #70501. The set has in fact inspired me to have a look at some other Ninjago models with a view to making a couple of purchases, which I never quite got around to buying while they were available!

    I cracked and opened mine last night. Whoever it was that sent me "Heroica: Caverns of Nathuz" thank you. That was the last Heroica set I needed. I'm a very happy AFOL right about now.

    @DanGP, So a little birdie told me you forgot you sent that to yourself (I would so do that..... :-)). So what did you really get?

    @romanticwarrior I took it back from her last night. I wanted the cookies and bear cubs. They are way too cute. I threw her a few poly bags for it. Can you believe I have to trade my lego for my lego?! Thank you btw.
