I didn't get your PM.
Make sure you get my board name right.
it's .... t l (small L) r n h i
no spaces.
Sometimes I have to "spell" it out like that because some think the "l" is a capital i.

AprilM to send someone a pm let click on their boardname. It show a box with view profile & private message on the left side. Click on private message and it will take you to the message page and you don't have to worry about mistyping anybody name.

Thank you, Queenbarbiej! I actually tried it two different ways last night. The first way was as you suggested (and in the help area of the board) and the second was as tlrnhi suggested.

I did actually get an auto-reply email last night, although i canít be positive which pm actually did the trick! My guess is the one tlrnhi offered because of the timing of the email but i am only assuming.

From what i can see, both ways make perfect sense and either one of them should have worked... but what do i know - iím the one who cant seem to accomplish this one simple thing! Although i am not new to computers, i am a newbie on the board (any board - this is my first experience with one). I am determined to get this figured out!

I was wondering... do most of you access the board by a windows-based pc? Are any of you using an iPhone or iPad? I have been using my iPhone and i am wondering if that might be part of the problem? I think i may have joined here in June or July and since i have learned a lot of things! I have found that not only do i need to login (duh) but i also need to select the option of using the full site to have fewer problems. However, using the full site option has one drawback - teeny tiny print!

My guess is that all of my detours are necessitated by using an Apple-based product. While i do have a windows-based laptop, i avoid using that like the plague - bought it in 2007 so its old and slow... i swear i could walk a letter to your house by the time it boots up! My husband hates computers so for home we went the Apple route as it seems to be a little more intuitive as far as he is concerned (which means that i have to respond less to ďflat tires on the information super highwayĒ at home - and hey, i guess as they say itís all about me???).

Thank you all... for being so very kind and patient with me! I promise i am gonna get this one way or another. I realized last month that just because i post a photo - and it looks right side up to me - that may not be exactly what you see when i put it out there! So now i gotta work on pmís... but i promise you all i will get it, just hope you dont have to help me much more or i am really gonna feel like a burden.

I am very excited to participate in this years Secret Santa! I very sincerely hope you all survive my efforts to get there!!! From the auto-reply email i got last night i think things got to the right place!

Thank you, thank you, thank you (did i say thank you?)!!!

I got it!
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask. There's always someone on here that can help you out if I'm not around. This is alot of fun and everyone looks forward to it every year.
I will tell you, if you see anything on sale that you think someone might like, go ahead and pick it up. Those fat quarters that you see that are on sale, go ahead and buy them, you never know ... your person that you get might like them. Check out the dollar store for fun little things to stick in the package. If you do a search on years past, you will see pictures of what has been sent. Mind you, you will see packages that you might say...that's more than $20. Yep, tons of those packages, but those are sent by people who shop year round for this. I have actually found some cute quilt patterns for $1 at some shops. I buy them up when I find them.
But, don't be afraid to ask questions
