Hi everyone! The hostesses are working hard on getting everyone matched up, and they should be out by friday the 13th!

I want to mention that we are now requiring that all comments have a name. If they are listed as anonymous, they will be deleted. If you have something to say, please use your name.

Just want to say a big "Thank You" to all the hostess doing all the hard work. This is my first SP and I'm way excited for it to start!

Shelby, just found your site through knits fabulous. I'm obviously late here, but I'd love to sign up for the next one if possible. This is all pretty new to me, but so much fun!

Glad I'm not the only one who's really excited about this secret Pal!! It's my 1st & I also keep checking my e-mail to find out who I'm matched with.

Can anyone tell me how to add buttons to my blogger blog? I've read several "how to's" and really am not "getting it". (I must be more computer illiterate than I thought)

I've already received my match and someone else has already received me as a match! This is going to be so much fun, I'm having a blast planning things out already!

Another "It's-my-first-and-I'm-very-excited" person here! (And I've already made a new friend from the list of participants - I doubt we'll be paired off - but you never know!)

Good plan to disallow anonymous comments too. I'm looking forward to a fun SP!

This is the first Secret Pal in which I've participated and I'd just like to say thanks to the hostesses for all the work that must go into setting up and managing it.

I know. I know. The last thing anyone wants is suggestions of MORE WORK, however, I have an idea, but not the know-how to execute it.

One thing I notice in the various incarnations of SP is there are questions on how to use and put buttons etc on blogs. If there was a technical post that answers to these kinds of questions. Another question that can be answered is the whole ANON email thing. I just thought it would be a nice touch and then the tech section can be moved to the subsequent SP editions.

Just a thought. (BTW, as I post this, I think OH SH*& I wonder if there is already this section and I am just THAT dense)

Polly, there is an earlier post on how to set up an anonymous email address. It's in the archives, though - so maybe a bit of reformmating to make it more easily accessible is in order. The idea of a post on how to set up a button is a also good one. Maybe after we get matches out to everyone we can tackle this - thanks for the suggestion!

Just because I've received who I'm spoiling, does NOT mean that someone has received my name, right? I didn't wantto be expecting something if there wasn't anything to expect yet :-)

I think us hostesses are all doing matches differently. I started with one person, and worked through one until I was done, and then sent out the e-mails. I'm not sure how everyone else is doing it, but I'd expect to get the e-mail from your hostess, before you'll hear anything from your secret pal.

From me too -
good luck and lots of fun to everyone!

Are you guys obsessively checking your email like I am???!! Anxiously awaiting my SP assignment.

Thanks Hostesses for making this round possible.

This will be my second SP. When I shipped off my 3rd box to my pal, I was kind of upset that I didn't hear back that it had arrived since I'd sent it Priority. Not mad at her but mad at the USPS. She lives 800 plus miles away from me.

In my 3rd mailing I revealed who I am and where I live. I later got an email from her and it was such a suprise! The reason she hadn't seen the last box right away is because she was here, 15 minutes from me, on business! But since she was here, she didn't know till she returned home that I was here!

Is that funny or what! We got a good laugh out of the coincidence.

Oh NO!
I left a comment saying I'd really like to join... and it's not THERE!
One more day late.
I've been working on my questionnaire and everything...
am I too late????

Sorry, Helen. You are too late to sign up for this round. If you'd like to serve as an angel, please send us an email. We'll announce sign-ups for SP8 on this blog!

THANK YOU for organising this, I'm so very excited.

I'm also quite chuffed that someone found this through my blog.. :D Yay!!

Blogger Shelby said...

Sorry to those who didn't sign up on time! We voted, and decided to remain strict with our signup date. We will glad to accept Angels to help us when the inevitable happens- a pal is unable to fulfill their committment. E-mail us, and put Angel in the subject and we'll add you to the list if you'd like. For everyone else, we'll announce a calling for SP8 hostesses as SP7 wraps up, and then announce as we know when things are starting up for it.

Understand the 'please use your name' rule but it makes it a bit hard to reply to the Button Winner post and say 'hey, she's my SP!'. :) Anyway, having nosed around her blog and seen her other stuff, you picked a really good winner! And I think I'm going to enjoy spoiling her, thank you for matching us.
