Ribbon, eyelet, brads and fiber swap sign ups closed!!


OKay this is my first time hosting something so please bare with me. Any of you more expierenced hostesses have any suggestions please let me know. This is what I am thinking. We will have 4 groups one for each category and you can sign up for as many groups as you want. I think we limit it to 10 in each group. YOu can usually by brads ect.. in groups of 100. You can put in your post what groups you want and what colors. For brads and eyelets I think shapes would be okay to. For example I have small pastel flower brads. Ribbon shoud have some kind of pattern. Not just plain. I think we will have sign ups until MoN a.m. Packages should be mailed out by Feb 24th. If someone doesn't follow through that person will just not recieve something. I think that covers it. Like I said let me know if you have any suggestions.

I mailed mine out on Saturday. Now, if only the mail trucks get through... There's enough snow that my own mail box has beenplowed over twice in the past week.

01-25-2006, 08:38 AM
My color for group 2 is black (all items). I have everything ready to go and will be mailed this weekend.

What type of envie is everyone using to mail? Priority, bubble, etc?

I also wonder what people are using for envelopes? And how are you handling the return envelope - mailing one size larger than you need and including a smaller return envelope?

And I don't mail much stuff - what kind of postage are you including - the amount in stamps or will the Post Office print out a "stamp" or label for an odd amount? I'm planning on mailing this Saturday but I'm kind of stumped on these points?


01-25-2006, 04:40 PM
Mine went postal today!

01-25-2006, 06:19 PM
Mine is all in a manilla mailing envelope, since none of it is fragile. I had the post office weigh the envelope, then put that much postage plus one more stamp on a second envelope adressed to me and put that in the main envelope. Unless someone found REALLY heavy ribbon, it should work out fine.

I'm a little worried though, mailing Saturday, I would have hoped that my package had reached our wonderful hostess by now but I guess not.

01-26-2006, 08:20 PM
I went postal today!

Here's what my DD and I sent - and hopefully this will make sense:

I signed up for primary and jewel toned star brads in group1. We got them from an ebay auction...they were soooo teeny tiny that my DD and I decided to send those 10 each, but we also added some silver stars and some primary colored squares.

Then, we were equally conflcted with the eyelets also group 1. I signed up for blue...so you each will get 10 blue brads. DD was extremely disappointed with my choice. (Apparently pretty boring from the eyes of an 11 YO.) So, she convinced me to get some really fun eyelets too. We decided on some baby eyelets, since I have a niece expecting triplets in a few weeks. So...you'll be getting the (boring) blue eyelets as well as some green, blue and pink baby-shaped eyelets.

I have purchased the fiber my Group 2 spot--it is green (kinda olive) with multi-color flecks--very Easter/summery. But, I am having trouble finding eyelets. Where do you usually buy these? Jo-Anns has a very limited selection and my LSS didn't have a lot, either.

Also, does it matter on the ribbon whether it is "made for scrapbooking" or not? Lots of pretty stuff out there, but scrapping with these things is new to me, so I am a bit unsure what is acceptable? :confused:


01-30-2006, 02:11 PM
bcarson- my package went out today. Also, could you add my color (black) to the list? Thanks! Can't wait for everything to come back! :woohoo:

Okay I have recieved lewdyan's and Paula S. also. I believe I have heard from everyone also! If I don't get them all by this weekend. I probably won't get them out until the Mon after the next weekend. I have been switching shifts the last couple of weeks because they still have not filled my old job yet. It really stinks. :headache: So they should be there by the second week in Mar. YEAH! :thumbsup2
