Woot woot! I got packages from Renee, Meleah, Lisa, Jodi, Shilo and Rosy! Thanks ladies! I just set everything out. If any groups are all here, I am going to start swapping.

Shilo, thank you for the super sweet Christmas chipboard! I LOVE IT! I looked at that line and never got it. I love the owls. Thank you!

Renee, thank you for the Amy Tan yes please paper pad! I LOVE IT! I have not gotten around to getting any of the Yes please line and this is ADORABLE! Thank you!!!

Tomorrow, I will track the remaining packages and check in with you gals on how the swapping is going.

****UPDATE: All packages are here except for Creativekiki, and hers are scheduled to arrive Monday. We have been pmailing back and forth. She had a family emergency, but was able to get someone to mail her spots for her. That is the last package remaining, so I will start swapping and when that last package arrives, I will slip the last spots into your packages and take them straight to the PO! Check back in tomorrow. Anyone owing me postage, I will post it to the board. Thanks for making this an easy pea-sy swap!

Andrea did my books make it ok? I was worried about the glue on the modern group with the chevron envelopes and buttons. I worried I might have packed that box to tight.

I can do that Renee! I giggled when I saw the box. That box has been all over the place. They seem to be fine. My daughter and I are sorting it now and are noting postage amounts, etc. After I get it all sorted, I will post again to the board.

Ok, everything is sorted and swapped. Just waiting on the last package which is scheduled, according to the tracking, to arrive here on Monday. When it arrives, I will stick the last card in everyone's packages who are in those two groups.

I show that the following did not send me postage:
Missy
Renee/Meleah
Liortega
Kerrie
Joescrapper

Either I can get an exact amount from the PO on Monday to give you guys to paypal me, or I can give you the amount on your package that it cost you to send me. Just let me know. I may go and mail the packages that are not waiting for anything, who have postage, in the morning on Monday. That way I can have the ones that do not have postage weighed, then I can come back in the afternoon and let you know the exact amount if that is what you prefer.

I will take and post pics tomorrow!!!

Thank you everyone for the hostess gifts!!! If I goofed up big time and did not thank you personally on the board, I apologize! I loved each and everyone and appreciate them all.

Just give me an estimate and I'll send it via paypal in the morning. Then if I owe more I can send Monday but I'd rather try for sending them that morning. I'm excited to see all of these. I believe this is one of my favorite swaps so far.
You have been a fabulous hostess.

Now it's just finding something to put these in. Maybe I'll find some time to look around for something when the kids start back to school.

All right ladies...are you ready for pics???

These are no particular order. Also, I packed everyone's cards and forgot to take pictures of each individual group. So, I pulled out my cards to take pictures of, but all of my modern ones are jumbled up. So, I just posted pics of all the modern cards. Going out in the mail to you all tomorrow!!! If you still owe me postage, contact me. I am holding a couple packages for a couple who requested me to do so. Everyone who has sent me postage, yours is going out tomorrow!

Pictures:

Vintage group 2

Halloween tag side

Kids birthday tag side

Modern cards pic 1

Modern cards pic 2

I made a modern card with polaroid and slide frames. I did not glue those down, rather I clipped them to the top so you could adhere over your pictures. It has a little viewfinder too.

This was lots of fun. I will post tracking numbers tomorrow. Questions? Pmail me! Thanks!

Christine, I have 4 sets of that last modern set! I will send you one back with your other 2 sets when you send some postage my way.

Thanks everyone. When my hubby gets home in a minute, I'm going to head to the po.

Christine/Liortega: I have yours packaged just waiting on postage.

Joescrapper I'm holding yours as promised.

Everyone else: BOLO for happy mail!

OK, please see op re packages that went out today and your tracking numbers.

Kristol, the PO would not take something with a metered strip that was dated over a month ago (7-15-13) due to homeland security and blah blah. So, I have your package. Do you want me to paypal me? I will send you back the postage strip.

Christine, I mailed a package today with 3 spots in it and it cost $8.75. If you want to paypal me, awarren1802 at gmail.com

Renee/Meleah, I was able to mail yours for what you sent!! YAY!!! I was excited about that.

Some of the vintage cards were decked out (including mine) and I think that may be the difference in return postage, they may be a little heavier on return.

Ok, so, every time I go to mail swap items, I pick late morning because it is dead at the downtown post office. BUT, inevitably, I have someone come in and get impatient and stand shoulder to shoulder with me while I mail. I giggled when it happened again. Check out the lady below. She kept getting closer and close to the counter til she was almost touching shoulders. I had to ask her to please move so I could swipe my debit card at the end...lol

Swapping BTS:

Headed to the PO


Impatient lady


Let me know when the packages start arriving. If you had less than $1 change owed to you, I did not put it in your package to rattle around. Most people sent $ right on or stamps. I think I gave one or two change because it was a large amount, so be careful checking your packages.

WOOT WOOT! I can't wait.

That is to funny about the impatient lady. Some people just don't get the whole "personal" space issue.

Once again thanks for hosting.

Hi Andrea. Sorry about that. I thought you'd just drop it in the mail, not at the counter. In the mail they'd process it. Please PM your email for PayPal and the amount. Thanks a bunch.

There is no place to drop it in the mail here. We have letter slots, but any boxes, have to be brought in and received by the counter. My mailman won't pick up metered mail from my house. Sorry! I guess they are all super rule followers here....lol

Julie, I tracked your package and noticed it didn't have the priority mail deal on it, so I looked at my receipt and it appears that I was not too good about checking after the clerk. She sent it standard post. So sorry! I asked for all of them to go priority because I had enough for all. She sent all of my packages out priority and flat priority EXCEPT yours! How strange. Maybe they will put it on a faster pony and it will get to you before Monday.

Julie, that made me LOL Even the postal clerk told me that usually there is only a few cents difference between standard and priority. I told her to send them all priorit then!! she must have had a brain freeze...I had so many packages, plus a few personal parcels to mail...not to mention the stalker lady leaning up on the counter all in our business asking questions...

I received mine yesterday! WooHoo! My favorites are ALL of them I did both sets of modern and had fun doing something a little different this time. I thought the vintage group I was in were all gorgeous.

Andrea thanks for the stamps!

I have the same problem with prepaid postage. I HAVE to take it to the counter here we don't have anyplace to drop packages only letters. One time I had one I needed to send and I took it to a little bitty rural post office about 25 minutes from where I live and it really confused the postmaster. She was like "you already paid for this right?" She didn't even check the date she was so puzzled... Small towns, you gotta love em!

Bahahaha...Renee! that sounds like us over here in Lousy-Ana...hehe. I was waiting for the lady here to whip out her magnifying glass! She was scrutinizing every package and made me write my return address on the packages because of homeland security and blah blah
It can be an adventure!
