SSCS Prezzies Final Post...........Farewell til 2008 swap

YES you read it right.......unless something drastic happens I will run another swap for Christmas 2008..........the Santa's have been so wonderful and kind and so appreciative of my organising the swap - that is enough motivation for me to go again (some of you will be very happy to hear that)

............all but 2 presents have been delivered (hopefully still in transpost) and only one bad person who didn't send - Maya. (I did say you would be named in the rules)

If you have been away and you missed the last 10 posts I did about the swap head back to between Christmas and New Year. There are only a couple of presents I didn't get pics of, so most of them are in the previous posts and here...............

USA Raesha was Santa for Netherlands Nicolette

USA San was Santa for Aus Gillian

USA Toni was Santa for UK Jo

Aus Gillian was Santa for Italy Teodo

Canada CJ was Santa for USA Tracey B

USA Carole P was Santa for UK Claudia

USA Linda R was Santa for AUS Carey
