    After some tooling issues I am finally working on the last little bit. I am soooo excited. Also since I have a bit of free time now and I know a kit is coming I will be opening right away and getting started on putting it together. I’m even more excited and I can hardly wait!

    Received a couple of comic books from the Amazon Prime elves today, so the early opening wasn’t my fault! (Because, clearly, I would have had SO much self discipline if I'd known it was from the RPF...)

    Thanks, Secret Santa!

    mine is shipped, tracking shows delivered, but nothing posted as far as received. I hope my person got it!
    Some people don't post unfortunately. Others are just busy or might have given a family member's address and not found out yet.

    Another year of successfully making a gift I was tempted to keep for myself! In the end, I finished up playing with my gift and sent it off this morning. I think I managed to hit a good range of my recipient’s fandoms.

    All this to say, I’m “Sent” and “Received!” Looking forward to more openings (Stop waiting!) Happy Holidays!

    After spending hours Hand Drawing/painting (Following a Tracing Pattern) a Stormtrooper on a Mug I finally finished. It looked amazing. I turned to get the Camera for Pics and knocked the Mug to the ground shattering it into a million Pieces. Quite a few tears were shed and a day was taken off of work as I am not much of a builder/painter. though sometimes that is the name of the game. :-) I think I have made a total of 4 props my whole life. I am still well ahead of my deadline and I fortunately have one back up. Looks like Santa will be using Amazon this year.

    I'm finishing up my last semester at college, but today my family let me know I received something back home so I gave my brother the ok to open it for me and take some pics!
    What I discovered was very creepy and equally awesome!
    I'll try and post some pics soon, but you can mark me down as received. 👍🏻
    Thank you Santa!

    Just got my first ever RPF Secret Santa Gift in the mail and it's taking all my willpower to resist opening it. I'm gonna try to savor it though and wait until Christmas... they say if you make it past the first day of waiting it gets easier!

    My own package is progressing nicely after a few setbacks and it should be out by next week. It'll cut it close, but should make it in the nick of time. On the upside, the recipient won't be tempted for long!

    You can wait if you want, but I'm excited to know how you like it so feel free to open it now! It's a custom made thing just for you.

    Treat this like a Christmas party. Unless it says to wait until Christmas you should open your gift now. At least that is my view.

    Personally this SS feels like the run up to Christmas and seriously gets me in the mood so I like to see prezzies opened as A.S.A.P. We then tend to get 3 or 4 great gifts to look at every day till the big day. And a few during the wind down after the 25th which keeps me going for a few weeks. (Unless Michael fancies a summer exchange....I'll keep asking every year....hehe).

    SO IF YOU'VE GOT EM........ OPEN EM!!

    PLEEEEEEEAAAAAAAASSSSSSE.
