On your question about getting a item, and saying, "Cute, but not going to use that." For me it is a stiletto. They are adorable and cute but I use an old (1900s?) wodden knitting needle. It is perfect.

a cute little rooster kit. It requires a tool I don’t have and don’t know where to get.

Ive wondered if anyone has ever gotten something back that they sent off in a sp package? With every package I’ve gotten, there has been a note encouraging me to feel free to regift anything I won’t use. I wonder if anything has been regifted enough to eventually make it back to its original gifter.

Anna, I have huge feet, too, so I feel ya, girl! No worries. As long as they still make shoes my size I'm okay LOL

Pamela, good question! I have always stated if you don't like something to please regift. I personally haven't received anything back that I've regifted, but I always worry that someone will receive an original item back. But then I started thinking....it's kind of like a "white elephant" gift exchange then, and hopefully they'll see the humor in it rather than being irritated!

Now that I'm thinking about it, it would be kind of fun to be requested to make sure you regift one thing. It could be something you like, or something you won't use, but it would be fun to see the same item go from place to place and see where it landed after 3 regifts. But then, I'm kinda into dorky stuff like that!!

I'm hoping whomever I get this time around is a chatty Cathy on the boards. It makes it so much fun to stalk them and come up with cool ideas for their package!
