First off I want to thank all of you who filled out the Google doc and who have contacted your pal. We're coming in to the last two weeks - remember your package should be in the mail by October 15th (earlier if you're shipping internationally) to arrive on your pal's doorstep no later than October 31st. Also, after you've sent your package, check back in at swap bot and click that you've sent your package.
And now for the no fun part: I have to admit I'm disappointed at the number of you who haven't contacted your pal or filled in the Google doc or replied to my nagging. Unfortunately you're probably not reading this either. I'm hoping it's because this is getting lost in a spam filter, but that doesn't explain why you're not checking the blog regularly. I'm sending this out via the blog, your blogger email, your blog (if you have one) and swap bot because those are the only forms of communication I have. If you flake on this swap you will of course be banned from future swaps, bad ranking on swap bot, etc., etc. And none of us want that. I'm fully aware life gets the better of us sometimes, but all it takes is a quick (anonymous) email to your pal to set things straight.
On that note, if you would like to volunteer to be an angel (hopefully just in case and not actually necessary) please let me know!
And finally, what you've all been waiting for! The winner of the secret prize: Emily at Vegan Knitting... and then some! Watch your mailbox and be sure to show us all what you've won!
