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.
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.
oh hohoho. weekday thread.
too close to call senpai
you'll get regifted either way
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
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.
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.
I got my card today! Thank you, I love it. And thanks for including the Meme X Kaiki story. It was interesting to say the least.
>Only heard someone say to get comfy to my initials 6 weeks ago ;_;
Got this in, thank you anon from IL.
I should be shipping out my stuff tomorrow:
Anon in Berk, CA
RQ in CA
A in WA
Anon in HI
Enjoy your present nicofag
Creative idea for a stumped anon:
>Make a book out of 5-10 pages
>Draw or print faces of girls on them taking up about the same space and position as eachother
>Cut 3 lines into book, making E-shape
>Flip through book and match different hair with different eyes and different mouths
GAof NJlast I checked your package was at your local PO. Should be there today. TFof TNyour 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
TFEach 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. ;_;
>finally finished everything and sent my package
I hope he likes it!
CC of NY, KM of FL, and M of NHyour cards are on their way with varying degrees of fever rambling.
My local post office is all out of Christmas international stamps already and they've got one more day for US and Australia bound post from what they were saying.
finally got my first card and what's more it's from a girl! and from my own country
it's a beautiful big ass A4 drawing of my waifu so i thought it was a gift actually
MGi really like it, i promise to send you something in return
These emotions, I know of them
Went to check my mail today and saw a package. Went to open it up and see what was inside (I signed up for cards). I didn't get a card or anything, it was just a pair of small, white tights. Holy shit,
AH, I'm laughing so hard right now. Thanks for the gift.
NHSof PAwouldn't happen to be around by any chance, would they? The Santas said you didn't sign up this year, but I wanted to send something with regards to last year, and I want to know if your address is the same.
Same. I bet most people are in crunchtime right now because they waited so fucking long, so most are shipping out their stuff this week.
I sent mine out first week of December
Ooh baby, check out that line width variation.
I got two initials only recently and nothing here yet - I'm getting a jittery feeling like one day this week several will turn up at once. Maybe they were all on the same flight over.
If pic related is your waifu, that's pretty good
as long as they were clean.
I got my package from
AC of Portugal. The package is very soft and the inside of envelope have a very strong smell of strawberry!
That is brilliant. I wonder who your santa could have been?
MKof Polandyour package is on its way. RSof England. Something is on its way as a thank for last v/a/lentine.
CGof USAon its way. JMof Canadaon its way.
Put them on and show us.
I'm almost 100% certain they won't fit me, so...
i love you
>not following it up within a reasonable time frame and instead wait until its too late to shitpost about it
>Attempted delivery. Notice card left indicating where item can be picked up.
This was supposed to be shipped to anons PO box, should I panic? Or is this normal?
Congratulations, you've won this Christmas.
Very well done, santa.
That was fast! Sent it on the 10th.
>strong smell of strawberry
I didn't spray it with anything and I'm out of perfume, but if its smells nice that's good.
DP from France, I received your package today.
>Depends on the size
Okay that's a relief. It's a pretty big box so it probably just didn't fit. In that case;
MSfrom Canada, your gifts are waiting for you!
For a PO Box yes. Domestic (USA) for my PO Box leaves a yellow slip to bring to the counter and get your box. But for EMS with buyfagging its a different slip I bring up to sign for. Pretty sure it's normal.
>11/27/2015 Dispatch from outward office of exchange TOKYO INT
I'm STILL waiting on SAL for your gift to arrive.
Sent out cards today to:
HP, Italy JH, UK LPRV, Brazil SN, LA-US MB, Germany SY, Australia
Well, I just wanted to complain I guess. I haven't seen any Santa threads until today since the start because of working.
But I also was told to wait until I was given an email about it.
Bitter Anon-chan just trying to vent before putting a happy face on at store I work at
>Also, can someone post the photobucket of all the cards this year?
>finally brazil mentioned

i-its gonna be daijobu r-right
DG of BC
Got my package from you today good and safe. Have refrained from opening it because I don't know if the contents are wrapped, but might peek in the top to see if there's a card!
Awesome. Just popped it open, already loving the abstract envelope. Thanks for the
>One of my gifts shipped with a tear in the wrapping paper
The desire to peek is overwhelming
MS from PA
Got your gift today.
I don't mind the hint in the card, it got a good laugh out of me. You're an awesome artist by the way. Merry Christmas!
It's most appreciated, but it's okay!
JSfrom Netherlands, your present is sent.
It took me a while to think up and get together, so I hope you'll enjoy it !
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.
Are there any characters you would like made?
>had to travel to mexico on the 4th
>mfw when tv I bought off amazon and package containing some doujins for my assignment were supposed to arrive on the 3rd
>because of what happened in san bernardino package was delayed, so place vacation mail hold from 4th to 10th with note that I'm expecting 2 packages and to hold them too if possible.
>post office holds all mail including tv
>on 5th check package status
>says note left on door because no one was home.
>try to schedule redelivery, but can't because "package was sent back"
>send back date was on the 9th
>Get back almost a day late because shitty airline didn't have plans on how to deal with people because of cancelled flight
>tv box on front porch
>thank god it didn't get stolen
>mail in mailbox including slip.
>try to schedule redelivery again, still get "package was sent back"
>Next day get notice in mail box that package was sent back
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?
>TFW drawing real people is easy, but drawing moe anime girls is hard, because you try to stay anatomically correct
Being an artist is suffering sometimes
I just received and open my card ! Thanks for everyone and Jebus for the awesome content. Nice drawing and creativity from my S/a/nta. I'll make sure to send a card back Jebus. Only one left and my gift and my chistm/a/s will be done !
>Sent everything out a few days ago
>PO says it will take 7-11 days
>Keep checking threads in hope of Anons receiving them
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
> Dec 23rd - Last day to ship for UPS Overnight/Next Day
>Still have 2/5 cards left to finish, and the gift to complete
Good thing I live in a small country and something sent 1st Class made it there for the 24th last time I did this.
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?
>I'm not even going to post any cards that arrive after Christmas.
wow what a fag
>how does the post office take payment on packages
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 absolutely love this card.
Thanks for the card and chocolate!
CJ from MA
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.
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.
Pic related, what I'm working on right now.
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.
NCfrom AL, your gift arrived December 7. If you did not receiving it, there is a problem - please let me know. RPHfrom QC, your gift also arrived December 7. If you do not have it there is a problem. MPfrom 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!
>I'm almost 100% certain they won't fit me, so...
Not with that attitude they won't
Cool, what email address do I send a message to and do I just say I would like a Holo scarf? I'm not the best artist, but I could possibly make a funny video. Or just get you a gift from a wishlist you provide
RPHhere. I do have it, it arrived last week so it's all good. I even posted a picture of the box a few threads ago and you replied to it unless you're not MW
Whoever sent me this, thank you! The box had no name on it so I can't say your initials, but it arrived safe and sound.
Kind of curious if I'm actually getting a gift this year. Didn't sign up for /ss/, but previous year one mentioned wanting to send a gift months ago in a thread, but I haven't heard anything else yet.
I'm wrapping stuff right now, dammit.
Debating whether or not to add something from my library that would take things way over bracket because part of the gift is lost in customs hell, but I don't have anything extra that fits for the other giftee who also has some stuff stuck in customs.
>Wants to participate
>The one pattern that knows is Harry Potter's scarf.
SCof KY, I just mailed out most of your presents earlier today, they should be there in two or three days. There is also another gift, which I thought might come early enough to get to you by Christmas, but which I fucked up on the order slightly so it might take a bit longer than I expected to get there. Don't worry, I'm not short-changing you.
MW I have a couple last minute questions if you're still kicking around and not passed out like you probably should be if you're that tired
what size are you I was going to assume you're a medium mexican but then I realized you might also be a particularly husky mexican to be living in the far north like this
BCfrom TXhere Afrom WA JSfrom OR HBfrom CA
I'm sorry. Nothing has gone right. Nothing works. Everything I try ends in failure. It was an insult to you're animus. I don't know what I was thinking.
Don't send me anything. I don't deserve anything. I'm just going to send you all a wad of money. I'm sorry for getting your hopes up. Please forgive me someday. I'm sorry.
Just finished my last card, all of them are going out tomorrow (Right at the deadline, I know...)
Worth it though, making the cards was fun as hell. I got to draw so many waifus
>I'm just going to send you all a wad of money.
Reminder that /ss/ 2015 is year of the nendos
JLof ON CDof ON
Finally got your stuff wrapped. Still waiting on more stuff to get in but will send that out if it ever arrives, this stuff is going out tomorrow.
CPof ON, I know you backed out for reasons but you're getting something anyway.
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.
Main or late exchange?
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.
From my experience, those tend to be a huge pain in the ass and don't come out looking right 95% of the time.
I could just be really fucking awful at them, though.
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.
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.
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?

I didnt open them, so I'm not sure. It was obvious they were nendos and it was confirmed in a thread
ES, you said the flat gift wasnt nendo related so I am keeping that one under my tree. Just letting you know before you get surprised one is missing. I did add some baked goods to the box for you, so dig around the paper if they arent right on top
>mfw too shy to participate for the last few years but still feel left out of all the fun
GM of GAI received your awesome card in the mail today, your package also arrived a while earlier but I wanted to wait to post until the card appeared. The Christmas hype is real right now. If I can make it before Christmas I'd like to send you and my giftee an ornament too, I thought that was a really nice extra to add in.
The ornament isn't in the photo because it's a little higher in the tree. I can't wait until Christmas now!
>Mfw my two cards have been delivered but not posted
>Mfw my giftee's gift (for which I ordered 2 day shipping) is already 5 days late
>Mfw I've received no cards
>Mfw Christmas is ruined
I feel you. The stress is killing me. But let's not give up hope.
>Anon gave me 2 gifts, then 2 more just arrived
What the heck anon, you are too generous, this is the 10-25 bracket you know!
It's n-not like i appreciate it or anything, idiot..
Thank you so much JS of WA, really brightened a stressful time.
You can do it, I just finished the immensly time consuming artwork for my 4 cards
one is yours Jebusand still have the cards themselves to do. But we can finish and get them mailed out tomorrow before the deadline. Right?
no initials pertaining to gift, no delivery
when should I start getting nervous?
Oh! Deadlines to make sure your card makes it on time. I thought we had a deadline to get cards sent period. I was about to freak out.
I'll have my cards made by tomorrow.
>anon gave me a cute Danbooru phone strap
>2 weeks later it fell off my phone and didn't realize
>mfw I have to now buy myself a replacement
I ain't even mad
I also sent out your gift today, you should have received an email from santa loli but expect it within the next three days.
I also added baked goods so feel free to enjoy those right away.
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.
That's perfect, the gift was made especially for you.
I'm glad everything made it safely. I had a lot of fun making that card. It's my favorite of all of the ones I made this year. I hope you enjoy the gifts too.
sorry for STRAYACUNTing the shit out of the inside sketch I also see the strawberry mochi didn't survive long enough to get in the photo
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.
Glad to hear it was a new experience for you. I wanted to keep the melon one for myself but that makes it all worth it. I live like 5 miles from a tiny Japanese grocery store so I knew I had to get you something from there.
Tripfagfrom M, TXyour card came, thanks in advance but I'm saving it for christmas. My package should have gotten to you last thursday SDfrom FLand MSfrom NJI have no idea how long it takes for cards to ship, they will get to you whenever but it should be this week
I'm gonna kill some mother fuckers if I don't receive a card this week.
Get off your fucking ass, stop being a broke mother fucker and next day ship that shit.
Nothing pisses me off worst this time of year than procrastinators and broke ass faggots that think the post office is magic and don't save up to make sure they can express send their shit.
If you didn't send your cards last Friday, you should die.
If you didn't send your present today, you should die.
And if you don't post the cards you receive, you should burn in hell.
>was using fanwikis and things to research people's waifu
>they were pretty in-depth with reasonable layouts
>never occurred to me 'til now that there's ones on mine
>everything looks and reads like a Geocities page made by a 12-year-old
This is physically painful to read. I am so sorry if anyone put themselves through this for my sake. You have my infinite gratitude.
Wish I could participate in these, but I'm a chronic procrastinator and I don't have the mental bandwidth to handle additional obligations.
And if you send your shit without wrapping them, your a piece of shit.
And if you just directly ship them from the site, your a total fag.
And if you pick an item that doesn't come out in time, but still don't send anything for your /ss/ to have for Christmas, you're crappy.
Oh snap, I'll go there after work tomorrow.
Now I won't be able to sleep tonight. Can I safely open the main box?
Also I am shocked at how well you using Osaka pictures had made me find basically every one of your posts. I guess she really is special to me
All in the name of Christmas spirit
>both my gifts have been delivered
>no response from either anon
Have a lovely Christmas and a great 2016 anon! I'm glad you liked it!
Something I bought for my anon arrived in terrible condition but I won another this morning. It might not arrive in time so I think I'll send them a package with their other presents and some snacks, and then mail the other gift as soon as it gets here.
Sent my cards out 3 weeks ago and have only gotten confirmation in-thread from:
KJC from France NG from Netherlands
If you're either:
JC from CA ST from KS
please tell me whether or not you have received your cards as I'm getting really worried about them being lost in the mail.
FUCK. I tried to draw Guts and I gave him fucking Donald Trump hair.
It's my last card stock.. Should I apologize in my card?
Dude that's nice.
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.
Thanks for the advice. I think I'll put christmas lights behind them and make it festive. I'm not an artist at all, I really gain a respect for people who can draw while doing these cards.
Just to update quick
TFyours is local now so my guess is tomorrow you'll get it delivered. GAyours was delivered so I hope you got it.
Does anyone know when the major "Anon and His Waifu" photo threads will be? Is it on the 25th itself or what. I honestly cannot remember from previous years. I want to make sure I don't miss it.
EXPECT YOUR LETTERS SOON, I'LL BE SENDING TRACKING NUMBERS VIA SANTA LOLI.
I was able to send all letters except for this one. er, turns out it was headed to a prison and they told me that the address was not set properly so I will be keeping this one.
for those who were wondering what was inside the 11 letters I made, I got one to open.
should I open it and show you?

Put some glitter on it anon, it always works. Just go nuts.
>mfw no one will hire me during the holidays so I can move out and be alone and do what I want.
got your package K W from Beaverton Oregon! I'll "patiently" wait for Christmas! thank you very very much!
I went to the post office and gave the postal service dude all the cards, and he said. "you ah... sending this to a prison? that's what this number on the address says, also can't send this one, the address is posted in two locations on my screen at two different states and they won't let your recipient accept packages in jail anyway, you will get this shipped back if you do"
not much I can do...
I've never participated and now i want to so how do i get started? or am i late for the party?
the special gift that comes since valentines is a bit far
Here's a prototype, since I'm basically out of yarn in the colors/sizes for any of the scarves that have been requested so far. This one took a lot longer than I expected, since I switched to needles that were a bit too small.
>want to request a scarf
>see a scarf that might actually be for me
Hmm well the envelope, the two packages, and the Niboshi strap is 4 but if you say so. I also opened the strap by accident because it was a suspicious cylinder of bubble wrap.
FB of CAand JH of NC: you should have gotten mail from organizers, I'm unable to send out my stuff for you for a bit due to injury. I'll try to get them out by the end of this week, but they'll probably get to you late.
Correction the envelope was a card anon who gave a complementary gift. Thank you although I'm unsure how to display the Homu Hologram thing without a LED.
Not for those who need to buy merch that needs to be shipped across the world and then shipped again halfway across the world. Dealing with international shipping twice in the busiest shipping months of the year can take a while.
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?
Did you sign up for cards?
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.
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.
The triads are coming after you nigger. Better pack up your shit and run NOW.
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.
I didn't sign up for cards. I don't mind if it's sent straight from the shop or late. I appreciate that I'm getting something. It'd be nice to know for sure, but I'm sure there's an explanation. Still I wont post anything until Christmas to keep with the spirit of things.
I didn't mean fugged because of the gift. I meant it because I thought that someone unknown got my address. Especially if it wasn't from my santa or anyone I know. If this is from my santa I'm grateful and glad I didn't get grinched.
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.
I forgot to take a picture of the seventh gift. Sorry
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.
>Finally see my initials posted
>It's not about any of my anons getting their gifts or my santas telling me they sent it.
At least your Strenght card was great. Love it.
>in hospital for weeks
>apologize to my /ss/ and cardanons
>weeks worth of homework to finish in the next 3 days because of my absence
>full time work in the meantime
I feel like a piece of shit for potentially ruining a few anons' Christmases. I'm really trying my best here, anons. I just wanted you all to be happy.

>we all laugh and make sperm jokes, we all laugh, I question how I will get my baby out after 9 months, I am not piccolo.
>mentioned the time when I saw an episode of Scooby do and friends where batman eats poisoned bat snacks, and prevents getting poisoned by drinking milk.
>bring a glass of milk to my desk, I inspect cookies carefully one by one, I find blonde hairs
>I ask anon if hes blonde.
>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.
AGfrom Portugal MPhere, 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
I'll make it less blog for you
>met his santa in some stream
>santa mentioned he should eat the cookies
>anon is skeptical that cookies might have semen in them
>notices blonde hairs as well
>santa apologizes sincerely
>anon eats the cookies anyways and they are delicious, also he got a nice card
>tfw you write the envelope upside down
i'm not retarded i swear
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.
I see it's ripped, don't peek. Hopefully the stuffing protected the corners.
>explains why one santa said he was grinching me
Maybe they didn't like the last thing in your message.
Also, you should finish
This isn't /b/. Christmas is sacred, everything went relatively fine last year and things aren't too different this year. Daijobu.
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
>send package overseas through courier
>didn't know recipient's e-mail so I just pout my own
>now getting delivery times of when it's going to get there, but my anon won't
Shit, I didn't think this through. I hope he's in when it gets there today.
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 ;_;
it's me again,
i love you
>arrive at around New Years
nothing wrong with that, at least i'll have something to look forward to after Kurisumasu
Jews we're all Jews here anon
Potential gift spoilers here, so turn back now if you don't want to be spoiled.
It's going to be sometime in febuary at the earliest before your gift gets in.
That fucking fig got pushed back to a Jan release date and I'm still on the SAL train. Please wait warmly.
KJCfrom FranceI posted your package this morning, but I wrote your name as JCK, so I hope that works out. It's EU shipping, I have no idea how long it'll take to get there. JMin CanadaYour card is gonna be late, I've just really procrastinated on it, but it should go out this week. >tfw never see Ireland in these threads
Kiss-Shot, isn't it?
>not expecting delays
that was either a troll assignment, or there is someone shitposting on /a/ from jail
V from NH Sorry it took so long to get back at you. It's been crazy ever since you popped into that thread when I was asking for card advice.
Everything is A-OK.
Thanks for being so patient,
MK. I wanted to design the card from scratch, but I procrastinated a lot, so it took way longer than expected.
Anyway, I think you'll like the card.
I hope you like Rabu Raibu!
So are any of you guys going to
leave milk and cookies for Santa-kun?
You...still haven't got it?
try making the message and the sketch in the card upside down
