Have you mailed out your cards yet? If not, shame on you.
I know USPS allows you to print out your own labels at home.
There are no excuses, only holiday cheer.
Dear CA anon, V from NH here, I got your package today!
I opened it and saw that the gift box was wrapped, so I put it under my tree (picture to come).
I'm sorry my wishlist gave you such trouble, its rare that I find characters I like, and when I do, they are usually fairly obscure.
I'm super excited to see the chocolate you were talking about!!
The box is super fucking heavy, its no wonder you paid out the ass for shipping.
I cant wait to see what everything other than the chocolate you mentioned are!
I got your package in the mail. I have no idea who it was from, or what it was. I thought it was a poster I was waiting a month on from Japan for. I hope this was you, just because the context fit (And it was delivered today by FedEx). I didn't wake up until 3PM today and I regularly check my doorstop.
The universe huh?Seems big enough.
JZ of Australia BN of Canada
Please let me know if the post cards have reached you yet, I sent them out earlier this month, and was hoping they would get to you within 2 weeks, but i'm worried since I haven't heard anything from you guys on here.
Got this card today and I forgot to post it in the other thread. I love it, thanks anon. Expect a thank you card from me sometime soon.
V from NH again, I got this card in the other day, but lost my camera.
So now that its found again, thank you MN anon, this card is the most clever and relevant to my holiday season as anything I have ever received.
I'd be interested in knowing what fan fictions you have read.
I love the thought behind the card, and her exposed pantsu.
She can steal my bread any day.
I got tendonitis of the shoulders/back from work and I still haven't shipped the gifts yet. I come home from work with incredible pain and the little strength I have left goes into preparing food and doing chores around the house. I don't know what to do anymore at this point.
Sorry I didn't make this post until just now, but I got busy, then as soon as I was uploading this in the last thread, it got archived.
But oh man, this card is beautiful. Killua looks great in a shrine maiden outfit. I don't know what to say, just, this card is amazingly done, I love the watercolors, the effort put into it, the extra touches of stuff on the envelope, the everything. I could keep going on and on about how great it is, but I'll try to keep it this brief. Just, thank you so much, you drew and watercolored my hasubando beautifully, it looks amazing. (Also the Gon-san with the Santa hat on the back is hilarious)
And thanks for the Ghiradellis too, I'll be sure to eat them while I think about Killua in a shrine maiden outfit (just maybe not today, I had some sweets earlier so I don't wanna overdo it)!
So, SW from CA, d-do you accept thank you cards?
Wow this is cringe worthy and reddit tier. What the fuck happened to you /a/? God dammit i guess its time to finally leave my this site. My addiction to this board was starting to get out of hand.. Im at a crossroads at my life where i have to finally get a job and get my shit together. Thanks for this thread. If it wasn't for this i would probably be homeless within the next few months. Thanks for the motivation. Was good while it lasted.
I really like the card, it makes me wanna take part in the card exchange next year
Don't you fagets derrail this thread, too.
Wait, we're opening things now?
I was under the impression that we would wait until Christmas, or at least Christmas Eve.
I got a card today, but I don't want to open it until the right time.
>mfw the guy at the post office said Chile's postal system is a shit and
MHmight not get his card brfore Christmas
Alright, just let me know when it does. Some non-murricans got theirs already so it should just be a matter of time.
I received a small package that looks like it could have a card inside. I'll know come Christmas
I live in Texas, but that shouldn't be the case. It should come by Monday.
If it was from
MWfrom ONthen it is my card to you.
Your confirmation is appreciated. I hate the idea that a card would get lost and my anon would suspect grinchery. I hope you enjoy the card notwithstanding my complete lack of talent.
just got this, thanks its the first thing to come in the mail for me so far, I'm not sure what's on it but I be sure to play it in the car on full blast, windows open, down the freeway
going 10 miles an hour
Oh, is that who I think it is? Yeah. It was me. What are the odds getting me for Christmas, huh?
I guess you opened it already. I set it for blind shipping so I don't think it would have mentioned anything about being a gift. But it's not like I even mind you opening it before Christmas. I went through two sleepless nights and many really bad ideas getting it to look right. I don't know if it's good enough for you to hang on a wall or anything but I hope you enjoy it!
I'm going to officially hang it on Christmas day. I thought it was a poster I ordered like ages ago from Japan (Since I'm still in the process of trying to get Kanon posters). Since there was no marking on it, the idea for secret s/a/nta completely slipped my mind.
You have no idea how hard my heart melted this afternoon. Of course from all people, knowing it's from you makes it even all the better, Blue. I love it, and I want to properly give it a spot on my wall on the day of Christmas morning.
Sorry for the lengthy life story you probably read in email.Amazingly, you did exactly was I was hoping for. A gift from the heart.
I backtracked the shipping # on it, but it didn't pull up your address so I had doubts it was you. Also, it helped that your post was up on the last s/a/nta thread right after I had just opened it. So that solved an international crisis right there.
I just found out who my secret s/a/nta was right now because he never posted my initials and states at all.
Can you OP guys please don't do this? It's really not cool at all to miss a /ss/ thread on the archives because every new OP uses 10 different variants of "secret santa".
old school /ss/ you just waited for your shit to show up on the door, there was like two guys doing it so no one could be bothered to giving status updates on the one thread they'd have before Christams
Thank you so much, anon! This beautiful card will sit proudly upon my dresser for the weeks to come, and I will treasure it dearly.
Kinda makes me think my cards are a bit shitty since I didn't color them. I'll try not to procrastinate so hard next year, I swear.
you can ask not to but it will happen all the same, first rule of searching is that you can't change what the topic will be called, it makes unique names heaven and unclear ones hell
I do like how that one came out. The way that the light illuminates from the body was literally a last second thing that was an absolute eureka moment. I was shouting SHIP IT right after it happened, and then it was sent out immediately. It's still a foreign concept to me hearing anyone hanging up my work on a wall, but I'm glad you enjoy it.
and i'm the last person you'll ever hear complaining about someone's blog
How does it look, by the way? I specifically asked for a matte lamination instead of a glossy one because I thought matte would probably be better, but it's hard to judge such a thing without actually seeing it.
Hi Vira, sorry for the gift wrapping, I don't have a lot of experience wrapping gifts. It should be safe to wait until Christmas to open it, the chocolates should be well insulated. If not, then I can blame that for how they turned out. I think it's fairly easy to guess what I got you though. There's a P.S if you flip the page, thought it won't make sense until you open the box. I really did run out of packing material...
And with that, all of my cards and presents have been received!
Someone sent me a lindt truffle last year and it got all smushy in the mail. It's probably best to send the small flat ones that are really sealed like Ghirardelli and Lindt Excellence, or whole candy bars.
It's relatively clean and smooth feeling. Although, there's two smudges of fingerprints on the upper right hand corner that seem to be on the art before the lamination so there's not much I can do about that ;(
Aside from that, it was actually pretty damn clean looking. That whole lighting from the body was pretty damn brilliant.
Funny enough, and I don't want to be too specific just wanted to let you know you drew Apollo (Kanon) and not Kanon (Kanon) Yes, there's a difference, although they are technically the same person. That and I'm more like Apollo IRL then my own waifu so that's cool too. Use google-fu
Be proud, it's about the internet equivalent of having your drawing on the fridge. I fucking love it. Handmade gifts will always beat everything else.
Now if only you could have came here and give me that hug I asked for.
Just remember that somewhere out there, your drawing is being loved every day.
Pic related, what my old setup was, I'll update during Xmas what the final placement will look like.
I just went and delivered my gift, and what I presume was my anon's father answered the door, took the parcel and said goodbye before closing the door.
LA from NSWI hope you like it anyway.
JFfrom NYand Afrom CA
Your cards should have arrived on the 15th (There's no tracking but I assumed since another one of my assignments received and posted his card already on said date). Please tell me in one of these threads if you've received them so that I can stop worrying.
I don't have the ability to travel out and send hugs right now. But you'll definitely see me a lot more now that I've lost my job and gotten my truNEET license reinstated.
And I definitely I questioned whether or not I should have gone with the goddess features. It felt like I was drawing Apollo rather than Kanon. But once I went fully involved into the space and stars theme, it fit so well that it just couldn't be helped. Your waifu comes prepackaged with a goddess, it's a sweet fucking deal if you ask me.
Ehhh... She IS "technically" topless in the image, but I don't know if it's the kind of thing that I would call lewd. What anon does with his poster is totally up to him though...
Thank you guys so much I got home after a 15 hour shift to these and it really made me smile.
The cookies were delicious the card was awesome and the bluray was of one of my all time favorite shows and your card made me laugh <3.
>My gift and 2 out of 3 of my cards were already delivered.
>not pic or mentions of them.
>Haven't receive anything yet.
>Haven't been mentioned once.
Step it up /ss/, although I don know there is still some days left.
MHof TXI hope you got your gift. They should have been there this week but its the holidays so hopefully it makes it in time. Merry christmas
Looks like we're both in the same position, per say.
Fair. I was automatically assuming maybe you haven't watched/read it so I didn't know if you knew the differences between the two. Like you said though, it's a two for one deal regardless. Apollo is so adorable on so many levels. Makes me glad that I'm more like my own waifu's inner goddess.
I-It makes me feel more inter-connected.
This actually marks the first thing I've ever gotten from you too! Considering it's been about two years right?
I think I responded to you in the last thread.
This is J
If you are
Dor LI have your card, but I am waiting til Christmas to open it. I like the suspense
I've been in the TWGOK game back when we only had a oneshot. And yes, it's been about two years since the day you were worried about giving your info to a complete stranger on the internet. Those were good times.
Oneshot brothers assemble.
I hope you still have that moderately qt postcard I sent you a while back.
I think I sent one with your waifu on it?Although I don't remember honestly, it's been way too long.
You need to do more Kanon transparencies. I been looking to stuff my collection full of them.
Also which one was your favorite kami nomi?
My favorite goddess was Apollo, favorite goddess girl was Kanon and Yui. I liked their straight-forwardness.
Elsie was my favorite girl and I'm glad she won in the end. As far as transparencies go, I will have more time to do that stuff soon after Christmas... maybe. I've got V/a/l to plan and extreme connect the dots is always a struggle. I haven't had a full night for bluing in a while so look forward to it
Such fond memories of such awful taste
I almost miss it. Almost.
>No friends or family
>Bought a tree and decorated it just to put my santa's gifts under it
>Still haven't even seen my initials once
Did you perhaps suffer taser-induced brain damage?
You wouldn't happen to be my Santa from last year would you? He posted a lot with that girl.
Ichiko/Poplar ring a bell?
JDof WA JLof WA MNof TX MKof KS JSof MA
Received their cards from
I went inside the post office and dropped them off in the slot that said "Stamped Letters" on December 5th.
Have faith anon. I didn't think I'd see anything about my secret s/a/nta until maybe after or on Christmas day. Hilariously enough I find out today that my gitfer posted that the stuff "Just delivered" today and I found a giant tube of
rapeoutside my door. You have my blessings though. If it makes you feel any better, I'll sing you one of my waifu's holiday songs before the season to keep your spirits up.
That daki doe
That popura nendo set was pretty funny to find. Sorry about how disorganized everything went last year. It was my first Secret S/a/nta and well, things got out of hand. Don't hold it against me kay'?
I like the cut of your jib. I'm going to send you an email about V/a/lentines day, hope to have another good year. (Unlike this years, some things went wrong on both me and my gifters end I think. I got grinched, but I was able to get one of my cards.
She sent me cake pops)I don't even know if the gift I sent made it to it's destination or not. I really wish I had checked that shit back then. Fuck having a full-time job back then. Elsie was best girl though. Kanon best aidoru.
I miss the old days. My heart breaks.
It's okay, I was a bit disappointed since you said there was a second half but I still really liked what I got, so I got over it quickly.
I was actually planning to send you some stuff this year to make up for that slow second half.
Things aren't going according to plan.
I already confirmed your address and I wanted to surprise you.
There's still hope-per say.
The second half was just going to be the pillow so that way you can hug and squeeze your waifu.Although considering the time-frame since then you probably already got one anyway. So it kinda make the idea of sending one a bit meh. Link me your steam profile, at the least we should be friends. That and I want to make up for the lost time.
Actually I havent, I have the pillow case inside another pillow case tucked away neatly in a draw all by itself. You don't have to do that, I appreciate the thought though
I'm surprised you liked it that much, thought I did a pretty bad job.
Y-you don't have to get me anything. It's the thought that counts.
Not him but it makes me cringe when we get avatarfags and spoiler tag abusers who just basically turn the thread into their own chat room where they blabber about things not related anymore to /ss/.
The gift giving is fun but fucking hell, these threads can be shit sometimes.
D from TX. Sorry to make you worry. A Merry Christmas to you as well!
This is /a/ after all. Also, some anons will naturally feel angry when they see posting behaviors uncommon to /a/ and frowned upon in the board be suddenly okay in /ss/.
>anons get mad at shitposting and faggotry
>others get mad at the mad anons "Where's your Christmas spirit?"
>"Get out crossboarders and newfags"
>"No, you get out cancerous fags"
surely anon sent it out.... right? itll be here any day right?
also i hope you enjoyed your gift/cards
PW from TX
JL from MD
TW from KY
AR from CA
Thank you so, so very much for the card anon. The warmth I felt from it has warmed me from this "tundra".
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas as well; look forward to unboxing pics in the 25th.
Misread it as you'd received cards, not sent them out. Don't post them.And there's nothing to be ashamed about, receiving shitty cards that have effort put into them is better than not receiving anything at all.
I have not seen my gift & cards being posted so reposting status.
Nani, NW from Switzerland- You should have your gift by now. RI in Australia- Card might be a bit late due to shipping to the other side of the globe AF in Germany- you should have your card by now. MCS in Spain- you should have your card by now.
Just in case if you don't know how to use the archive, here's a message for some special anons!
https://archive.moe/a/thread/118590655 SKfrom OR RTfrom VA BCfrom MA DMfrom CA FDfrom CA ASfrom OR FEfrom NJ EFfrom MN RMfrom AL Mfrom UT
Your cards have been sent out! You guys should certainly be able to expect your cards to arrive well before Christmas or on Christmas at the latest, so don't worry!
LLCfrom T, New Zealand JZfrom M, Australia MNfrom M, Australia PGfrom V, Sweden
Foreignfriends, I'm running a little behind schedule getting your cards done to send out. Rather than throw together something messy to make sure it gets in sooner, I'd rather work on them a little bit more to make sure they're decent and worth your attention. If pricing for priority mail isn't too steep internationally, I'll definitely look into it. Just figured I'd keep you updated!
Vfrom NH, I will have your card mailed out by Monday alongside the foreignfriends! So if it gets to you by Christmas, awesome, and if it gets to you by New Years, all according to keikaku!
They ask you about it generally.
Yeah, I do hope so. The last time I'll post it is Monday probably, to let everyone know for certain that their stuff's getting sent out. To be honest, I forgot about the archive until /ss/ started up since I thought it was closed down for whatever reason.
SKhere, I got your card the other day, thank you! But why 2 fags?
It's this one, right? The Saitama doodle is so cute!
Okay, yeah, yeah, that's it! You were the first person to post their card, I almost forgot. Still glad you liked it! Expect a card for V/a/lentine's Day too! I'm saving up all my addresses until I explode with letters.
LAfrom NSWyou can go ahead and open the box, everything is wrapped.
MCS here. My card didn't arrive yet. Don't worry anon, I'm sure it will be here tomorrow.
AB from BC, Canada. Have you received your card?
And to the anon who sent me the gift, it's here. Just letting you know.
>missed the whole event because of finals
Oh well, maybe next year
retarded me forgot to check archive. glad you got it. the top white cardboard is just a card you can open now underneath is the gift.
Holy fucking shit I'm so sorry I couldn't meet you in person /a/non. Thankyou so much for the gifts, they have absolutely made my year. If possible in the new year I'd like to try meet up again.
Your gift akari figure will sit proudly at the centre of my collection.
>opening it early
It would seem /a/non and I are /a/usfags from the same area.
Sorry, I'm going away over the christmas break. Also I didn't realise, last time I only participated in cards. Still not the shittiest thing I did today, which was going out instead of waiting for /a/non.
It's okay, and no problems. Glad you liked them, making your year has made mine.
You can get my email through the /ss/ organisers, we shall have a beer some time and discuss buyfagging!
Yes sir, of course sir. Shitty phone cam quality plus my excitement over the gifts.
Also that mugi is fucking spot on even the kyo ani hands. I'd gladly get a beer sent info to ss already.
EF from MNhere. I got your cards PM of ALand CY of GAand posted images in previous threads. I don't wanna spam these threads, so I'm not gonna repost them again until the Christmas day thread, but I just want you to know I got them in case you don't check the archive for your initials.
Not him, but here in the Philippines the postal service is so bad that I sent 6 freakin' letters locally and only 2 arrived. There's also no tracking unless you use expensive courier services like Fedex.
Are you a germanfriend?
JZhere, I've got it but overseas right now so can't post it. Definitely made me smile, it was really cute. No return address? I want to send you something back for valentines.
That's it /ss/. I don't care if I get grinched anymore because santa just gave me the best gift ever:
Having the message hidden at the back like that was a nice touch, I appropriated it for some of my cards. Email email@example.com with where you'll be at valentines, maybe your waifu so I can come up with ideas early.
Thanks again for the card! Will post early January.
VPof CAI received your wonderful Suiseiseki card earlier this week. I was truly delighted at your wonderful art.
To the second /a/non that sent me a card from Germany, thank you very much for the heartfelt sentiments.
P.S. I respect your choice, but I must adhere to Suiseiseki being the best doll
To the third anon (from presumably Britain, judging by the postage) that went to great lengths to create an entire felt Suiseiseki card, you have literally made my year. I wish I had as much talent as you, but I am not versed in the arts.
JDof NJ: Your card and present is in the mail.
JS of AUS, GC of CA, JR of AZ, ERT of MEX, MN of TX, and MD of POL, your cards were sent out a few days ago and shoud be receiving them soon.
Had to find my camera, but here you go.
More Desu ~ for me then
He called her "glopping slut" in the letter, so it was a piqued response to that.
God damn, those are cute as fuck. I really love marker drawn cards.
JS of AUShere, assuming there isn't more than one JS from AUS, just letting you know that I'm going overseas in a couple of day's time. So if you don't see your card posted that's why. Sorry. ;_;
NSW. It'll be waiting for you you when you return if you don't get it in time. ;_;
>already got all my cards and gifts
>still keep checking spoilers for my name
Why am I doing this
Thank you anon! Is your return address correct? I would really like to send you a thank you card!
and I thought you meant the garbage bags you used to pack in the present when I read your P.S. it should be interesting to see what you used inside as cushion.
Though if you really did melt and re-melt the chocolate, I think I will probably keep them as a memento instead of eating them, since chocolate starts to taste like ass after its been melted and hardened more than a few times. I'm still really excited to see how they came out though!
Thank you for the heads up! I'll be looking forward to your card.
Chilefag here: Now you know our pain.
Root in hell, Correos and Aduana.
Does buying first Class stamps makes a difference on speed? i sent mines out yesterday.
I'm way in the frozen north of Hesse, though.
Probably can't manage it on such short notice, but it certainly seems like there could be a meetup at Connichi some time.
Not many Cons here to visit either way.
Are you the Chilebro who sent the gift to
OPfrom Colombia? Your gift arrived to my cousin's apartment earlier this week and she made me buy her a box of chocolates in exchange of the packageso I'm going to pick it today. I didn't want to post anything until I was sure the package was in my hands, but seeing as this thread won't last until night, I'm notifying you now. I know you're always lurking these threads since you tend to post pics from Hoozuki no Reitetsu, probably waiting for notification on what you sent, so I'm really sorry I took so much time to notify you. I sent an email to the Santas with a notification, but I don't know if they send it to you. Thanks for everything you did, and I'm looking forward to what is on the package. Funny thing, my cousin opened the package by accident thinking it was a package for one of her friends, and she said something like "I didn't read absolutely ANYTHING" after reading supposedly the card. I wonder what's in there.I hope there's some kind of return address so I can send you something back. Merry Christmas!
Yes, I am.
I'm glad! The tracking code said it arrived, so I thought you were going to post the presents on Christmas. And do not worry, I didn't put nothing lewl on the card... unless you count that I deleted the ~ on the N so it reads "New anus" instead "New year".
Hope you like your presents :)
A Narutard would be more troublesome, I think.
Meme spewing is only strictly bad if it involves people not understanding them, and if he's fat with a Goku shirt, well, at least you won't become gay.
If he is a Narutard however...
Official ones on 24/25.
Now I'm curious how the attendance would be split.
There would be classy gentlemen
tipping, weebs you can spot from a thousand paces, people with peculiar fashion sense and also some people managing some degree of normality in their appearance.
How would they be divided? What would an /a/ Con look like?
It's interesting how nobody seems to assume that there are normal, power-level hiding people on /a/.
So you are also either a tipping gentleman, a weeb or someone with peculiar fashion sense?
I don't hide my power level but I don't wear weeb clothes either, I'm entirely normal and a fairly big extrovert. There would be all kinds of people just I'd assume most would be too nervous to talk to randoms
Hah, that seems appropriate.
Ah, well, I'm actually assuming a fair portion here fall into the latter two groups. Inconspicuous.
until you enter their room/house
But I'm sure we have others, as well.
The fun part is they might not really be aware of it.
How else come they to be what they are?
>b-better wear a suit to that /a/ con
>and muh fedora
>most would be too nervous to talk to randoms
I just want to befriend a shy anon, but I guess they would never go to a meetup
nor would I.
Anyway, let's stop with this /soc/ shit. This is a Secret Santa thread after all.
>No mention of my initials in any thread in the catalog
>No mention of my state
>my /ss/ had to open his gift early because he's going out of town for Christmas and as he attempted to post pictures of it on a thread everyone called him a faggot for opening it early and he stopped
"Some people" made it sound as if you assumed you were part of some obscure minority.
But I can see how some people might be unaware.
I just want to make friends.
But you are right this has nothing to do with secret santa. So let's stop it.
I've had a few people call me scene/emo, but I think it's just the way I like to style my hair and that I tend to wear black.
Thanks for the card and gift anon (haven't opened gift yet of course) And don't worry, your drawings of Yotsuba and Tomoko weren't shitty at all. they were pretty good. Anyway i have a guess at what my gift is, but I won't open it until Christmas!
I still think it looks great and I love it though. The last time I tried to use watercolor was as a freshman in highschool and I remember whatever scene I was painting came out really shitty, I was really unskilled with it so some areas were too dark and indistinguishable from normal paint and it all just look really bad. But even if I did have watercolor-skills, I'd still think the same of it, I love it.
Aw, I would've liked to, but I understand! It's no problem. Thank you so much once again for giving my hasubando and I the great artwork he deserves.
ZRfrom Australia, I sent your card on friday so it should arrive the first days of January. ZMfrom Ireland, tomorrow I'll send your card and it should arrive on 31st Demember.
To both of you:
I'm so sorry for not sending your cards before, I've been working on these even before december, then I got injured and I only could use one arm. That's why I was so slow.
This isn't how blogging works, buddy.
I'd have to write a comment to his blog entry or something.
But there isn't one.
I also don't read blogs.
You see, there's all kinds of problems with it.
I could write a blog entry about what 'blogging' means, though.
>are you me?
>I just want to be invisible or something.
It doesn't help that I'm dandere as fuck and listen to death metal.
Fuck, maybe I really am emo.
>falling for the bait
You shut up.
Other Chilefag here, have you received anything yet? Not sure if I should go bitch Aduana or something.
Funny is my international shippings via cheap SAL correos were actually extremely efficient and fast.
Nothing yet. My /ss/ had an awful problem
(Their father passed away), so I know their gift will have a huge delay. And (I think) most of my cards assignments sent their cards on December, so it might take a while.
I sent the cards and gift on November-first week of December, tracking code incluided, so that's why it was extremely efficent and fast.
Correos funciona solo para enviar weas, no para recibirlas.
Yes indeed, I sent my stuff about that date and they already arrived, pretty neat, but yeah, they really can't into receiving stuff, although I blame aduana for that. I had already assumed we would receive our stuff quite late, but it's reassuring knowing I'm not the only one.
also I got assigned a chileanfag for one of my cards, how many weones can there be on this thing?
Aduana only bothers you if they see you spend hundreds of
pesosin your packages. I have read horror stories about Aduana and I'm glad and sad DHL is expensive, it works pretty well. I bet they're either: Hidden on Jaidefinishon or somewhere else.
I think Chile is the second country of South America with most people on 4chan followed by Argentina.
Playing euro truck sim 2 with christmas music is maximum comfy
I've gotten all but 1 card but only seen 1 person post my card hopefully I didn't just fuck up on the addresses.
Hope everyone is having a great christmas
>JD I can only pray for you being wrong.
Oh shit, I figured I wouldn't get any cards since it was so close to Christmas and I still didn't have one and then I got this card.
Thank you for the card DG in MA, USA. I'm trusting you on these cookies, if they have semen in them you'll be getting a dragon dildo sent to you.
All of my card-anons were international. Despite having my shit together, the mailing times from my country were beyond unreasonable (yes, mailing by December 2 is unreasonable) unless I wanted to pay $65 per letter.
So, while 3 of my anons got their cards before Christmas by good luck, 2 definitely will not.
You could be one of them, or have similar luck.
For what it's worth, I've only received one card thus far.
yours made it to me >>118658657
you never gave me an address to send a card to though, i'd still like to send you a new years card since it wouldn't make it in time for new years
Oh, you're one of the keystrap folks. At least those made it there okay. I've seen a few people post them now.
If you want to send me a card back, the address on the envelope is good.
Does this look at least half-decent? I really tried my best. ;_;
Got my card a few days ago now, but not been on /a/ to post.
Thank you both for these. Made my weekend.
It's cute. I think your main problem is probably either brush control or a brush that's too large, or maybe not watering down your paint. That's just for future reference though. I think it looks pretty good as is, I'd certainly be happy to get something like that.
>tfw I keep seeing you post this
>tfw I'm the guy who photoshopped that
Feels absolutely wonderful.
The Josip group, right? I got tired of people being of the yaoi spam and rude people.Also I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, Anon!
First time I've gotten to see you post my card, hooray! There's a funny story for when I was printing that picture out by the way: In order to make sure I beat the postman, I was in a mad rush the morning of to get it printed and didn't have ink, so I rushed to the store to get colored ink just to print your card out. Hooray for heart-attack inducing panic!
The figure itself is really small (4cm x 4cm x 2m), so it's really hard to do for someone with no artistic ability. Also I didn't manage to completely smooth out the wood, so the texture itself sometimes makes it hard to paint properly. Thanks for the feedback though.
I know how you feel. I signed up to send out 10 cards and was only assigned 4 people. I sent them out and I don't think anyone was even assigned to me for whatever reason. That or all four of my /ss/ haven't sent their cards yet or are late with them. Not that I mind but it's just a smidgeon disappointing.
If you signed up for the late card-sending, did that exempt you from even receiving any cards?
As a note to DG in MA if you see this. I'd like to try to get you a gift as an I'm sorry for not sending a card. If you reply with an idea that would be appreciated, it is likely it will be after Christmas as I have an imouto and my parents to still get gifts for.
Thank you for the drawing, wonderful words and snacks
I got this earlier in the week, but it's been a crazy one for me.
If you mean the yellow line near the head, that's actually the saddle. It's hard to see on the picture, but it does not belong to the sash.
>sent six cards
>only one has posted a pic
>no cards yet
>no present yet
It's a shame that I have to leave tomorrow to visit family and if there's nothing in the mail tomorrow either I'll see everything only several days after christmas.
So in case my gift and card recievers are worrying.
MS of CA your gift was sent awhile ago I hope you got it in the mail by now.
D of KY
CS of TX
AH of WA
WH of Canada
I have mailed out my cards to all of you! Hope you enjoyed them!
>sent 5 cards and gift
>2 cards have been posted
>not a single fucking card or gift received
I've never been held up this late. Usually people send cards out earlier, I don't know why people waited this fucking long this year.
You honestly don't need to go to that much trouble. If you really feel a need, New Year's cards are nice if that's something you'd like to do. Good luck with your Christmas prep anon.
I hope the cookies weren't too bad.
You're welcome! I probably should have made Kyouko's face even wider, to take up more of the cover.
Jake the Tripfag I just got your letter, and cookies. Thanks!
I despise tripfags, but that cards is really damn cute.
oh wow I was just starting to accept I might have to look forward to next year
I'll be sure to post a pic as soon as I get it to make sure you know it got here fine!,
MRof Finland. I know I said I'd post your present last week. I lied. I'll send it out tomorrow via DHL, it should still make it in time for Christmas.
Oh shit, I'm >>118662695 so I won't be able to get it before christmas, I'm sorry.
Glad to hear from you though, and merry christmas!
Don't feel bad, anon.
I would send all of you cards and presents every single year if I could, but since I cannot, all I can do is try to send my well wishes and love to you all. I hope all of you can feel it. You are my friends and my family.
I think the late card exchange was a separate mini-secret santa event. You should get your cards eventually, but consider that even people that had 2 months for cards are only sending them now, so expect them to be late.
I can't wait for New Year's to get all lovey-dovey with /a/ while listening to the streams.
Did someone say wish?
You too, anon.
The Agiri is not for lewding.
This is the only time of the year where I read anon's blogs and sappy life stories while listening to r/a/dio. I understand anon. Completely.
Ayy this thread is going in the right direction now.
Did you get your card yet? You'll know it's me because I wrote my address on the back.
time to wait for them to hate my presents and post about it
T-thanks anon, I'll be looking forward to it.
hopefully it arrives soon
There was a great KLK card last year so I wouldn't worry about humbugs.
I did. Yours was really well made.
I was already overdrawn when I made my four cards, and yours really puts mine to shame.
>I think my name was mentioned.
Uh, at least its reassuring I'll receive a card
On other topic, I just sent out my gift with fastest delivery method possible but I don't think it'll arrive to him before Christmas.
Sorry Chileananon, I had some life issues and couldn't do it earlier even when I had the presents ready since Nov. I hope you like what I sent you.
I'll look forward to it. I'd have zoomed out in that photo, but you'd be able to see the appalling state of my living room. I don't get any guests.
Next year, I'll be able to spend more on these, provided I manage my money better.
Here's Kyouko without the hat fixed in post, by the way.
>tfw no decent post service so you cant participate in this
where can I get some hot new memes around these parts?
pic related mfw new hot memes.
AHof ORyour gifts will be coming in rather late. My apologies. I'm sending out your card tomorrow and your gift when it arrives. Please wait patiently as you do have a gift coming. My sincerest apologies.
Feelio when you haven't participated in /ss/ for two (or maybe three?) years now since you wrote some stupid shit on your cards whilst fucked up on shitty RCs.
Feelio when you acted like a dick because you thought you got bootlegs but they weren't.
Feelio when no matter how much you give away for free, you'll never shake off the shame and guilt.
Feelio when you religiously take care of your gifts and will treasure them for as long as you live.
I'm so sorry.
