11 days to christmas folks.

Haven't seen your initials? Check the archives. Not in there? Don't worry.

Domestic US shipping deadlines (should be postmarked and received before end of day on these dates):
- 15th : USPS Standard Postage
- 19th : First Class Mail Service
- 21st : Priority Mail
- 23rd : Express Priority Mail

Reminder, you don't need to fill customs forms for any international mail through the postal service. Only packages need customs claims.

And opening your gifts before christmas is absolutely haram.
>>
HM of PA and Andy of NC yours are in the mail.
>>
Reposting this with a reminder that request signups will be open for a few more days.
These ones should go out today, once I pick up some more envelopes.

Do you make them yourself? How can I sing up for one of those?

Also, can someone post the photobucket of all the cards this year?
>>
>>134759240
Yes, I make them every year.

>>134759531
Any /ss/ is fine
Basically, /a/ does a cards exchange and gifting program. people send quick explanations of themselves, and anons will be assigned them to make gifts for them. in return people send em to you
>>
This is my first time doing /ss/, is the person who I'm sending my card and gifts to the same person who is going to send me presents?
>>
>>134759806
No.
The assignment system is random; your giftee gifts to random people and you get gifted by random people as well.
Although supposedly it's not uncommon for giftees to give back to their santas.

BB from IL your present should be there today.

AW from OR your gift should have arrived earlier.

6 hours or so, usually distributed over a few days? The ones with fancy embroidery take a bit longer. The Horo one took me like 4 hours just to do the embroidery because I kept fucking it up.

GA of NJ last I checked your package was at your local PO. Should be there today.

TF of TN your package was scheduled to be there today as well Mr. Alias. Though I didn't see it in your area before I left for work this afternoon. Hopefully it will get to your PO Box fine.

Just so you know everything's wrapped inside so you can open the boxes though I forget if either of your gifts were near the top so be careful. I kind of want you guys to open the top gift now since there is an awful card but feel they may be spoilery. Especially yours TF Each has a miniscule gift though I would like you to possibly have and maybe even use while it's in season. Should have wrapped them separately. ;_;

I think you lost your name at the time, but it's fine. I was just curious what the person was going to use it for.

I don't consider myself much of an artist either. I found a set of the lovelives in their school uniforms and edited them to what you saw. Here are several other lovelive patterns I made.

So in other words the post office returned the package after 1 day because I put a vacation hold on my mail.

Please kill me. If I ask to get it shipped again I'd be out another 5,000 yen shipping (10,000 for both attempts). Should I just ask a refund? I already got my anon's other gifts no problem. I could add some merch I already have plus candy or something. Shipping combined would more than contents of the package and I'm getting tight on cash. What do?

I'll have to ship everything out Wednesday.

>15th : USPS Standard Postage

Does that mean I can't send mail out after tomorrow?
>>
>>134769529
No, it just gets more expensive.
>>
>>134769529
no, thats the last date for guaranteed arrival before Christmas.

>>134769529
It means anything you send out after tomorrow with that service isn't guaranteed to reach your recipient before Christmas.

Did...one of you send me some crocs?
>>
>>134769529
After tomorrow mail through the regular post won't arrive on time for christmas, most likely.
You'll need to use first class, which is like a buck or two.

Some other shipping dates:
> Dec 18th - Cutoff for UPS 3 Day
> Dec 21st - All UPS 2nd Day shipments will arrive before 24th
> Dec 22nd - Last day to ship for UPS 2nd Day

The cards need to go through as parcels, rather than envelopes. I'm not too worried about them arriving in time as a result.

how does the post office take payment on packages? I dont usually carry cash so I dont want to get there and then drive 20 min to the closest atm then drive back. Who puts post offices way out in the middle of nowhere anyway?

Standard shit. Cards, paper. You can buy postage online through paypal.

>Who puts post offices way out in the middle of nowhere anyway?
What >>134770609 said. The USPS has a legal obligation to provide mail service to all Americans at equal costs. As a result they need to have an extremely reliable service, and provide accurate and reliable service at the fastest rate possible.
USPS is pretty crazy actually.
The Postal Service is explicitly mandated in the fucking constitution. The post goes out rain or shine. The USPIS, the law enforcement branch of the post office, is the most effective law enforcement agency in the country. They have a 100% conviction rate of people they file charges against.

I really don't like taking money for them. It makes it feel like work, when it's fun because it's just a hobby of mine. Normally, I request art of some form. I've gotten drawings, small clay figures, crocheted dolls, and in one case a song. If you're artistically challenged, I can supply a gift wishlist sort of thing. Also, if I feel particularly inspired the idea that you want, or you have particularly good taste, I'll just do them for free.

>>134771008
I'm probably going to keep accepting emails until Wednesday or so, then maybe open them up again around Valentines.
I'll be fully addressing them once I've had a chance to sit down for a while and really look at them all.

Cards are ok to open before christmas.

They aren't a present really, they just wish you a merry christmas. If you open them *on* christmas then the wish doesn't have time to take affect.

NC from AL, your gift arrived December 7. If you did not receiving it, there is a problem - please let me know.

RPH from QC, your gift also arrived December 7. If you do not have it there is a problem.

MP from NM, your gift has shipped and is scheduled to arrive Friday.
It is crossing an international border, so I had to put a value. I chose $120, and apologize if you have to pay customs on it. The items cost more. Please do not look at the custom slip because it may spoil the surprise!

Would helping you with pixel art be a valid proposal for a scarf? I had an idea for one that'd be cute but I really don't know what I could offer for something so on-a-whim. I've been trying to think for a few weeks of something that'd represent the husbando but there's no particular colour or symbols.

If you're going to do that, look up things related to perler beads. Since they lead themselves to being pixel-like in the first place, I'd imagine it'd be easy to transition over.
>>
>>134775663
There's also perler/hama bead pattern generators so you can turn any art into a pattern (and edit how many colors to use, etc)

I'm still thinking about the scarf for my fumos. I don't know what to give you in return. What fumos do you have now?
>>
>>134775428
I would probably be open for it, though from the number of signups I've gotten so far, it may take a while to get to.
The issue with that particular image is that its too wide. The scarves I've been making are 18 rows wide, with two rows on either side that need to be clear due or it will curl far worse than they already do, which brings the with to 14, give or take about 2 pixels, which is why the Horo one fit so well.

>>134776127
I have Kaguya, Patchy, Remi, Flan, Tewi, Satori, and Koishi. Though honestly, a fumo scarf would probably take me like 10 min, tops to make, so I'd just request you post pictures with it.
>>
>>134776282
I tend to post in the /fumo/ thread regularly when I have pictures to post, just like the last one with China and Mokou. I'll try to send my details later when I'm free. If you're gonna make a fumo scarf, would you make one for a specific fumo or one that fits them all?

They were all the Madoka Magica girls excluding cheese, which is perfect for my own figure collection because my collection is magical girl themed. They'll be a nice present to myself.

You're welcome! I'm glad you and your waifu liked it so much.
Also, the site I ordered from lists the max size as 5' 8" and 160lbs, but you'd be amazed at how much nylon/spandex stuff can actually stretch. Unless you're very fit or fat, you should at least try them on.
I-it's not like I'm trying to spread the joy of crossdressing, or anything.

I feel so bad about all my cards, I know I'm not the best artist in the world but I've been in an art slump recently and I know I can do much better, but right now I can't so I'm not pleased with any of my cards. I'm sorry everyone, I will send you replacements when I'm better.

Tripfag from M, TX your card came, thanks in advance but I'm saving it for christmas. My package should have gotten to you last thursday

A tip I believe makes sense: don't apologise for a bad drawing/card. How would you feel if you got a card that says "Sorry your card is shit"? Believe in yourself and give anon the best you can. Anyone who hates it isn't worth it to begin with.

Are there anons participating from china? I think I fugged up and if no one is participating from china I may be a little scared.

today in the mail I got a small package from china. I was confused because I didn't order anything from there lately. Strangely enough the package was addressed to me with the name I used to sign up for ss. So I was really confused. I opened that bitch up and inside were 2 mini tippy plushies (unwrapped). The value of these doesn't cover the bracket I'm in ($50-$75), but they're cute as fuck. I did mention I liked GochiUsa in my sign up email. Inside was also a small card asking for a 5 star rating. So it looks like it was sent straight from a shop.

what could this mean? If it really was from my santa I'm sorry for opening. I won't post anything until Christmas, but if not am I fugged?

[spoi spoiler]I do remember ordering a cheap plush from china more than a month ago and forgot to leave ebay feedback until today, but the strange part it was addressed to me with the name on my PayPal. What I got today was addressed using the name I used to sign up for ss. Am I fugged?

The package was definitely just sent from the store. Maybe your santa is running late on the main gift(s) and gave you that to tide you over until the main comes.
>>
>>134785960
Just sounds like your Santa got an item sent directly to you from the seller.

I did this my first year and am forever ashamed. To be fair, I lived in a very rural place and getting stuff to me and then to my anon would probably have taken too long.

I think you're looking at it all wrong. Don't think of it as getting fugged. You should be happy you didn't get grinched like a fifth of the anons here will. Your santa probably accounted for shipping as part of the bracket when they shouldn't have. This is the problem when a gift gets opened early.

The first time in 3 years my gifts were posted. Now everyone can see my shameful wrapping.

I sent 7 presents, did customs unwrap one, or worse yet seize it?
>>
It's been a year and I still won't open my present from my anon because I accidentally grinched my guy and never got to send anything. I don't even know if I'm black listed, I'm self-black listing myself by not signing up. I deserve it, fuck me. I hope he still lives there when I send something.

>>
>>134786806
Well fucking send the present.
I'm 99% sure that anon will be happy to get something after being grinched.
The organizers seem to okay with checking if people are still at the same address. I wanted to send something back to my santa from last year, and I was able to confirm that they hadn't moved.

That's fine, I was just a bit worried.
I'd heard horror stories about your customs, I'm sure 99% was bullshit, but still.

Anyways, hope you like them, Merry Christmas.

>>134786806
Can't stop you blaming yourself, but there's no need to keep wailing around for a year. If you really want to fix things up, do it.

Sent out your cards a week ago, still no word. Hope they've not gotten lost in the mail.
>>
I've seen some people make up full names for anons who only gave an initial for the mailing address. Is this necessary? Or can I mail it out with just the initial for the last name?
>>
>>134788090
I'd just go with the initial.
An entirely different last name might cause problems when your giftee's trying to claim his package and the ID doesn't really match up.

>I open it, there are a good amount of fresh cookies, I am impressed on how they look like they are made with tons of effort… all of them evenly sized and with equal amounts of choco chips.
>I hesitate to put one in my mouth and even though they look very good and made with “love” I also fear of food poisoning while also getting /k/ brownie flashbacks.

>I mention that even though they look amazing I also fear to eat them and I link them to the /k/ post, while at it I then ask anon why he thought that cookies was a good idea to send cookies to strangers.

>he says yes, he sounds serious, he then deeply apologizes and explains that he made the cookies with his mother who helped him follow his grandmother’s recipe, she has long hair and are most likely hers, I begin to question anon, while laughing and teasing, but he sounds legit sorry.
>I begin to feel bad for nitpicking, I inspect the cookies one more time and look how seriously well-made they are.
>anon keeps apologizing and seems like a “good” person.
>I decide to bite the bullet and take one for good faith as I hate wasting food that was made with honest effort…
>inspect cockies, it now feels like 1999, it’s mine sweeper time.
>I take a bite while carefully inspecting cookie.
>my eyes open in surprise, the cookie had the perfect balance of crunchiness and flavor the choco chips were chilled and slowly melted in my mouth, I ponder the experience…
the cookie was actually yummy.
>I tell anon that her mom has some delicious hair and that even though it could be a joke, I did those cookies good justice.
he had another package inside of the box in which the cookies came in, I haven’t opened the package get but it also came with a card with a doodle of Marseille from Dungeon Meshi. I look forward to Christmas, I wonder what he got me aside from the protein cockies… welp at least now I know how she feels now about eating monster cookies. Poor girl.

I'll update in Christmas time.
>>
At last, the cards are now safely sealed in their envelopes and ready to be mailed out tomorrow. Yay to procrastination.

MP here, thank you very much, I received the gift, I am pretty sure I know what it is, probably one of two books I have wanted and I'm excited if it is. Also sorry, I just realized I sounded like a complete fuckwit in my wishlist, please excuse the newness. Guess that explains why one santa said he was grinching me

The /k/um brownies was just a joke, by the way. It was just condensed milk or something.

How does anyone trust people around here? This isn't 10 years ago, there are tens of thousands, maybe more, of all different sorts of people from all sorts of different places. I wouldn't have done it even in 2010, I seriously don't know how you people can now with all the retards, underage fucks and just plain questionable people.
Well whatever, good on you if you send something nice and brighten up someone's Christmas.

>>134788814
I see it's ripped, don't peek. Hopefully the stuffing protected the corners.

Maybe they didn't like the last thing in your message.
Also, you should finish Gankutsuou.
>>
>>134789040
Okay Reddit, how's that working out for you? Being trusting and optimistic? Did it get you a nice girlfriend?
Let me guess, you'd do SS with /b/ too. Incredible.
>>
>>134789012
This isn't /b/. Christmas is sacred, everything went relatively fine last year and things aren't too different this year. Daijobu.
>>
>>134789048
I did my best to resist peeking
Don't remind me, what the hell was I thinking? That was so fucking cringey

About Gankutsuou, it's one of those shows you really enjoy when watching but just keep dragging on for some reason, it was the same for me with Eureka Seven. I think it's a good show so I want to watch at least 3 episodes at once to get into the atmosphere but never take my time for that

What would be best, getting it to delivery on a weekend or something? People stay in on the weekends, right?

Your cards are taking a bit longer than expected. They'll probably arrive at around New Years.

Same goes with you. I think you'll like what I got for you.
I'm also unironically looking forward to getting your CD. Your cover of Snow Halation was beautiful ;_;

I'm curious, are there any Jews and/or Muslims participating in this thing?
>>
>>134786806
Just chill out and send the gift. Ask the santas if they still live at the same place, or post their initials.
I'm sure anon will forgive you if you had a reason for it.

Welp.

Dear JC of OH,

Potential gift spoilers here, so turn back now if you don't want to be spoiled.

TL;DR It's going to be sometime in febuary at the earliest before your gift gets in.

Long version: That fucking fig got pushed back to a Jan release date and I'm still on the SAL train. Please wait warmly.
