Suspense, well, stinks.

Isn't it lovely?  I know but it's still kinda cool looking.
I'm the world's worst gift giver.  Let me rephrase that - I'm the world's worst gift "hanger-oner until it's the proper time to give it" gift giver.  As soon as I have something that I just know someone else will love, I want to rush over and deliver it.  The joy and appreciation are always worth it... but now, I can't do that because of this whole "Secret Swap" stuff.

I want to share my box of goodies that are going to be headed out the door next Friday, but I can't.  I want to tell you about the treasures and goodies I packed inside, but I can't.  I want so show you the faboulousness and the wonderment of all smooshy, yummy goodnesses, but I can't.

So this is why suspense, well, stinks... don't you agree?


  1. I DEFINITELY agree. The secret part of this swap is killing me. I want to squee to my partner, "OH. MY. GOD. Look what I found for you!" But I can't. I do not do waiting very well at all. If I had my way, I'd be shipping things off separately so that I could get my squeeing in several times. ;)

    1. It's so nice to know that someone else completely gets it! I have the coolest stuff and I can't share... so utterly cruel! And now I want to know what you have so it's doubly cruel... lol.

    2. Well, once it's all delivered, we can meet up here or on Ravelry and share all the goodies. LOL I'm probably going to send mine out next week because it can be mailed out early...just can't be mailed out late and I. Can't. Freaking. Wait.

  2. I send a surprise swap package to my friend Chan yesterday >I got her some awesome pink Carnation Madeline Tosh sock yarn. I almost had to keep it myself. She's a huge PANK fan.
    I love giving gifts right away. They lose their steam somehow when they sit awhile.

  3. Sometimes I'd like to skip Christmas gifts to my friends and have an open "I just saw this and though of you" gift policy. Less stress for the holidays and more fun throughout the year!
