In exchange we will have a guest judge award a prize to the person who puts in the best story and shows us their gift --

Prizes for presents:

after you receive your gift, take a photo of it and post it below in the comments

  • the best photo/gift combo will receive a $50 gift certificate from Ann Arbor's excellent Zingerman's Deli from us folks here at AFI (Connie, Jacki, Tina and John)

  • (as I told you before I stole this idea from - this link will show you the Reddit giftees showing off their gifts)

Thanks for playing with me!

Secret Santa Jeff & Judy Goodwin gift came today.  Beautiful porcelain jewelry.  Delicate leaves in shades of greens and plums with a light touch of gold on the edges.  Thank you for the awesome gift.   Nadine Booth

What a nice gift. I could use those too. Thanks for posting, Nadine. Jeff and Judy are early Santas. Good for them. I won't be as good.

I hate to procrastinate!  If I do I often forget!!  So glad you like these, Nadine.  You took a great photo!! 

I received this thoughtful gift from my dear Santa in IL, Ronnis Oher. The box was filled with several flavors of coffee, a few sweet treats, a mug featuring one of Ronnis' zentangle drawings (pretty cool!) and an adorable card with holiday wishes. This coffee-holic is pretty happy! Thank you, Ronnis and Happy Holidays to ALL!!

I just opened a delightful gift from my Secret Santa (a.k.a. Colleen in Chattanooga). Also loved the fun way it was wrapped.


Glad you liked everything, Colleen.  Sorry I didn't see your message.  I hadn't checked this site; was watching for a comment from the Draw Names messages.  Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Hey Ronnis, just saw this reply and wouldn't you know, I just brewed a cup of the salted caramel coffee in the Zentangle mug!

My Super Cool Secret Santa was NADINE BOOTH. I love vases and blue glass so this was perfect. Made my day. Thank you!! --Paulette ,


OMG! Exquisite!

Secret Santa mailed me this beautiful box filled with goodies.  It came from St. Peter FL.  I do not have a name, but would like to thank Santa.


Trudi Van Dyke thank you so much for the handmade note cards.  They are stunning!  I was looking for something to put around my "mother's letter" to my children for Christmas and this is perfect.
