It is with regret that I have to write this post. I am getting more and more emails alerting me to the fact that Swappers have not heard from their Angels or received anything. I know there are many valid reasons why this may be so but as I have said before a quick email is all it takes to let me or your secret partner know.
So, I want anyone who has not yet received from their partner to email me in the next two days. I know many of you have but I need a refreshed list so I can finalise this and get you all a goody bag before Christmas. I will also do a bulk email to all participants from my database in the hope we catch everyone here.
Sorry to have to be harsh but all Angel swappers joined this swap in good faith and committed to the rules and obligations of the swap before I let you join in. Again I know there are many and varied valid reasons and some not so valid for defaulting but think how you would feel if you did not receive anything after doing your part perfectly. Please keep this commitment in mind when joining swaps and if you think you may not be able to follow through, choose not to join, just read along and enjoy the fun instead.
Once I have my refreshed list I shall contact all fallen angels and possibly list them here if I cannot get a response. I shall also be keeping a list of defaulters for next years swap and for other swap mamas.
On another slant please keep in mind Christmas mail is clogging up the system and one parcel just took 6 weeks from Australia to Holland.... so if you have sent your goodies but haven't heard from your partner or seen that they have received them on their blog also email me so I can keep a track of them.
frustrated swap mama hugs, Helen
