    2020 is a dumpster fire but we can still spread a little cheer.

    PM me your name and address and specify if you want just the card list or to participate in gifting.

    For “secret” Santa if you want to claim a person, that’s cool (I’ll confirm you are the only one), or I’ll randomly give you someone (tell me if you want someone domestic or international). I’ll try to figure out Elfster so you can upload your wishlist.

    Cards: I will send out the list. Send one to all or none or some. I want to see cute animals and kids.

    Gifts: You do you, don’t overthink it. Just make someone smile. Try to shop soon as shipping is atrocious, or leave it to Bezos to drop ship it.

    Mine was still there from last year, lol. I keep it semi updated (and pretty sure Grandma just bought a few things).

    This is harder than I thought it would be. I’m having a hard time thinking of things I want. My wishlist is sparse. :sad:

    That’s why I keep one all the time, I see stuff I want and add it right away, otherwise come gift giving occasions I’m all “uh... I dunno.”

    ETA I’m just saying, a giant bag of gummies is rarely a miss.

    Dude I forgot gummies!

    Okay, to my santa - my list is crazy and overfull of random stuff. It isn't meant to be totally literal and especially is not when you get to books and fabrics. Things are more representations of my aesthetic, authors I've enjoyed a lot, general ideas of stuff I might want to try, etc.

    I cannot participate this year but I'm watching intently! The present reveals are the best!

    I need to update mine but like others, I have no effing clue. I did just find a local brewery beer club I want to join so if anyone had a spare $390 :eek:, I’m your girl. lol I do want a Grinch holiday tshirt, that’s the only thing I’m currently looking for!

    My last item is coming today so hopefully I can wrap and ship by tomorrow. That should be cutting it close to get it by Christmas but it will probably be late. :oops:

    Jan 7 2021 is considered the last day of Christmas this year, no worries. I’m going to get a bunch of local stuff this weekend but shipping will no doubt take forever. Oh

    If that’s the case, I might keep shopping :yes: I usually try to buy gifts at craft/makers markets every year and so many are canceled this year it’s much harder to find gifts. I usually just buy whatever strikes me vs thinking ahead and looking for something specific.

    Wow, @virgo spoiled me! Got me the things on my wishlist (some cute pouches and sun catchers), plus burp cloths and wooden shape blocks for Fry. He has really enjoyed making designs with them.

    Thank you!

    You’re welcome! I’m glad he likes the blocks! I was going to get something car related but just couldn’t find the right thing.

    @virgo this was perfect. He has so many car things and is really good with spatial toys, but didn’t have anything quite like this.

    Dear Chicken Santa,
    The gummy bears came today! IDK if you meant for there to be a note, but there was no note. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
