This thread is for questions and discussions regarding Secret Santa. Don't post your signup here, do that in the other thread.

Please remember that there should be no discussing anything revealing, such as who your recipient is! Santas will stay secret until the event is over :P

AH I had forgotten to say, but I really loved my secret santa gift whoever gave me it! I got a lovely edit complete with Dark Cyan & a Madeline L'Engle quote. :) Thank you to whoever gave it!
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

I already said I would tell you guys when it’s time. I’m on vacation so please give me some time.

Hey @Iggy I understand you may still be on vacation, but I never received a Secret Santa, but it seems as if others have.

All presents have been sent out! You may now reveal yourself if you wish to. Thanks for participating and coming through, everyone! I’m very glad no backup gifts had to be made. :)

Thanks so much @Elinor - I was so excited by how many of my interests you got in there, and it was just the perfect quote from L'Engle. Thank you! I'll post below in case others were interested in seeing it (notice the dark cyan border - a clever touch!)

Spoiler! :

I was @TheBlueCat's Secret Santa and made some blue cat banners, which featured cats I found from the internet and edited to the appropriate hue -also the far left picture features my own cat Esther - who enjoyed posing for the gift.
