The Swap is DUE Friday August 25th

*I will PM each of you with my mailing/contact information. I am excited to be hosting this swap and look forward to seeing all the wonderful creations.

*If you have not already done so, please PM with your mailing address so I can pre-address envelopes and boxes.

*Post your weekly status on this Progress thread, like every Friday (or which ever day of the week works best for you). Communication is very important in a swap so please make sure you check in to the Progress thread EVERY week.

*Packing Instructions - use a Ziploc for each person and put everything for that person into their bag; put all of your Ziploc bags into a large Ziploc bag - be sure to include your name, your DIS name and your address on your big bag (this step is important); include $4.05 for postage (or stamps if you don't want to send cash) to return your items. If you do more than one Swap please include $ 8.10 for a priority box. Please also mark your large Ziploc baggie with the swap group # (this will make sorting so much easier than last time.)

*PM me if you have problems and need to drop out or if an emergency happens (we all know things happen beyond our control sometimes), let me know so we can make arrangements for an angel or other help if needed.

* original thread can be found here: http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?p=12824942#post12824942

Just saying hello. I will not be working on this until I finish my July swaps, so there won't be much progress for awhile, but I do have some ideas in my head (and sketched out on paper) so when I do sit down to work on them it shouldn't be hard.

KatDisney
06-09-2006, 11:39 PM

Do I have to make the embelished squares for Splash Mountain in a square shape or could I do them in more of a splash shape to go with the shaker box? I would make them the same size as a square.

Do I have to make the embelished squares for Splash Mountain in a square shape or could I do them in more of a splash shape to go with the shaker box? I would make them the same size as a square.

I've done circles for squares, etc, so personally, I wouldn't limit them to just square shapes. Sounds creative to me!

Also checking in...........I will be ordering my supplies early, but won't be putting them together either until my June and July swaps are done.

potterphreak
06-15-2006, 02:13 PM
Checking-in and asking a question:

For my matted song lyrics for the Parade of Dreams (group 1), are there size guidelines or anything? *** to do it on the computer, it's going to come out like, 5"x7". Is this ok?! I have never made one of these before and I have never received one either, LOL.

Thanks in advance!

KatDisney
06-15-2006, 08:23 PM

ladies, We had a late addition to group 2 & 3 :) Those 2 group each have a full 12 in them. How is everyone doing? I have semi started I am finishing my cruise swap this week and then I am off and running on the next swap that is due.

I am completely done with the 50th one. I ran out of supplies so I am one photo mat away from being done with my Ned stuff, and one set of my tags needs ribbon so I am basically done with my group 2 stuff. So all I need to really do is my Alice stuff, and there I am done with my slide mounts, so I only need to do my borders! Although those are giving me fits, cause I am having that "get idea out of head and have it actually look good" problem.

MyLittlePiglet
06-29-2006, 07:01 PM
Kat I sent my address did you get it? The first page has not been updated. I take some tink supplies for group 2 and all but 1 sticker sheet for group 3 (darn store not having enough sticker packs :) So have to go back to pick that up. Finishing 2 other swaps and then this one is all I have to do until ABC swap :rotfl2:

Checking in again now that I am back from Denver. I have strated the shaker boxes but I have been having a few issues with my craftrobob that the company is working on. I plan on working on things this week and hope to have at least the shaker boxes done by the end of the week.

Ok I have just PM'd everyone with my contact information and Mailing information. If you did not get it please let me know. How is everyone doing?

ksjayhawks
07-25-2006, 09:15 PM
Mine are done and on the way, at least part of them. I finished them last night and hurried to package them and get them mailed today before picking up boys from tennis camp; came home and while cleaning up, found the 4th deco square hiding under my swap lists sheets. :blush: So will send them tomorrow in an envelope.

My package will have topper and 3 deco squares in it and a saran wrapped deco square taped on it.

I told our host that I was so proud of being able to be a month early for once, and see what happens! Oh well . . .

07-29-2006, 01:18 PM
If possible, can I change something of mine in group 3? Instead of a matted song, journaling box and a tag, can I please change to 1 journaling box, 1 tag and 1 topper for Tiki Room?

Please advise!! I cannot get my song to look right and it's bugging me! LOL

KatDisney

Hey, good timing. I just came to post that after running out of paper, going to Seattle, getting over a cold I am done!

And this means I am finally down to my one post-it-note. So sometime in the next couple weeks we need to get together for lunch or a visit to a LSS or something.

I'm here, still working. I have 2 of my 3 groups done and plan to finish up by early next week.

Ohana 4
08-08-2006, 03:02 PM
I'm almost done too. I have 2 sets completely done. Working on Monsters, Inc now and then the Character meal one. Then I think I'll send you this set with the next CJ I have, if that's okay with you. I currently have The Little Things. You haven't done that one yet, have you?

KatDisney
08-09-2006, 12:59 PM
Ohana, that works for me and nope I've not done that CJ yet.

hope I would love to meet somewhere ;)

Does everyone have my address?

MyLittlePiglet
08-15-2006, 07:33 PM
FYI for group 3 Heigh Ho Heigh Ho..... I made 12 inch vertical borders, but designed in such a way that if you are doing a 8 1/2 by 11 book you could just trim off the end without loosing any of the design, but those that do 12 x 12 could have a border than went over the whole page too.

Does that make sense? :)

KatDisney
08-17-2006, 01:18 PM
New England Eeyore & hopemax I have recieved yours :)

I must say you ladies are just simply AMAZING! your pieces are awesome!

Question: How do y'all line your stuff up straight to double mat? I am having the hardest time getting my stuff straight!! Even went and bought a T-square yesterday, but it's not helping 100%. GRRR! LOL

RealMickeysGirl
08-22-2006, 08:55 AM
Ok - I didn't get to mail today. I have done one of my elements twice and still don't like the way it came out so I scrapped it again. Tonight, I am going to come up with another version/idea and just go with it even if it isn't the way I envisioned it in my mind.

Maybe that is my problem. I had an idea in my head of how I wanted it to look and I can't seem to make it look that way.

Hopefully, I can get them in the mail in the morning.

potterphreak
08-22-2006, 04:40 PM
I finished today, and packed them all up (oh boy, did I join a lot of groups! LOL) but ran out of baggies (need 5 more!) so it will go postal tomorrow. I am sooooo tired and rundown and getting the runaround from my ob's office for a blood test and BAH!! Today feels like a Monday! LOL <whine> I just need to know if I am tired because I am finally pregnant or do I need to see the doc??? LOL Whatevah! Hopefully they will get their act together so I can get the test tomorrow. Called at 8am this morning and 6 hrs., 45 minutes later-they don't know anything. GRRRR!!! :furious:


LOL!! I need a little faith, trust and OF COURSE some :wizard: dust; would love to not have to track my crazy cycle any more! LOL

YodasMom
08-22-2006, 05:29 PM
I mailed mine this afternoon via priority mail.

Just a note for everyone.....I had planned to do the Disney Railroad spiel for my quote / lyric element for the railroad theme. But, I recently found the perfect quote from Walt about his dream for the parks and the railroad was a part of that quote. I had never seen this quote before. So, I thought it was perfect considering the 50th celebration and considering parts of this swap have some elements related to the 50th anniv. Hope this is OK.

Thanks again for hosting, Kat! :goodvibes

Only 9 more swaps to go............ :crazy:

potterphreak
08-23-2006, 07:34 PM
Well, after taking 8 hours yesterday for my ob to approve the blood work, I went and had it drawn today. But of course my doc is out of the office today so who knows when I will find out, LOL! I am really hoping I am and will be sure to let you guys know as soon as I know!!!

Doc's office called my cell at 5:42, I called back at 5:44 and got the exchange because apparently, their offices were closed and I didn't have an extension, blah blah blah. So, I call this morning at 7:10 and have to call after 7:30am. LOL Oh the drama!!! :-D

I was thinking I'd swap it out this weekend and mail on Monday.

Hi Kat,
I think you need to do what's good for you in regards to sending out the swaps. If this weekend is a good time, go for it!

Just curious.......Did any of them respond to PM's? If not, I would go ahead and send them out this weekend.

Thanks for all your hard work!!

potterphreak
09-13-2006, 10:24 AM
I agree-swap them out this weekend and mail on Monday. Sounds good to me. If people choose to be slackers, then we just know to not swap with them in the future. I am so sad, I LOOOVED the topics the slackers were doing. Too bad they can't be team players, but onward and upward, no? LOL



**I forgot to ask-did you get the stamps I mailed you?

Ohana 4
09-13-2006, 01:59 PM
Yep, go ahead and send them.

KatDisney
09-13-2006, 04:17 PM
Hi ladies,

Thanks for the feedback, I will swap them all out this weekend and mail on monday.

As for the MIA's nope not a word from two of them. Apprenetly one was mailed but I haven't recieved it yet.

Potter, yup, I got your stamps Thanks! I thought I posted that I recieved them

This swap was a blast to do ;) I had fun with my items and I KNOW you will all just squeal with delight at the pieces your getting back they are simply AMAZING!

I'm fine with whatever you do. I'm a little curious though. I think Tink93 is Bigsis1970s daughter and she's going through some tough times right now. I wouldn't expect to get thouse. But no word from Disneyland Emily? She was an "oldtimer" and a fixture on these boards - I hope everything is okay.

KatDisney
09-13-2006, 08:09 PM
yes she is her daughter and I've heard she is having a rough patch. I've not heard this from her just others. As for Em I am not sure whats up with her. she might have just forgotten about it since she recently moved to florida. Im sending her an email.

Em, I got yours yesterday.

I will get this swapped out by Friday. I have a nasty cold right now so I want to make sure I have a clear head when Im sorting. Everyone should have them by early next week.

Hi Everyone!

I spent the afternoon over at KatDisney's helping her package everything up. All of them are ready to be mailed, except 2, due to a minor miscounting error on one of KatDisney's pieces. I have 2 of the boxes (since I have to go to the post office Mon/Tues), but unfortunately I don't know real names/screen names. I have the "Maine" boxes (Joan and Suzanne); KatDisney will be mailing out everyone else's.

I am also taking the photos, which I will do tomorrow and get them online. So stay tuned!

Just checking - do you mean Massachusetts, which is MA? Maine is ME. Just checking! Wouldn't want the boxes to get lost!

Sorry, yes Massachusetts! The boxes say MA on them, and KatDisney addressed them, so they should end up in the right place even if I can't keep my abbreviations straight.

So is everyone ready for the pictures?

Everyone did an awesome job. I think this "summer of swaps" has been great for our skills, and we had many, many changes to play with ideas. A few other notes. KatDisney never received a package from Tink93 and PixieDust32's package never arrived. KatDisney's step-daughter filled in for groups 2 & 4, but in Group 3 everyone will be getting 2 extra of their pieces back, since there were only 10 swappers and not 12.

On to the pictures...

Ok I was delayed the last packages went out today. I a have been working so much I havent been able to even do anything but i found this handy post office that has a mail meter so I dont have to go up to the postal window if that makes any sense. I was pretty excitied about it.

Kat - still nothing here - was mine in the last group? Just wanting to be sure it doesn't end up on the front poarch and get rained on.

Not trying to rush you or anything - just excited to see everyone's work in person.

Thanks, Sandy

Didn't get mine today either. Were they sent priority mail? I'm grumpy, my postman is grumpy now, my boss is grumpy (*** I keep hounding him daily-did the mail come yet? did i get anything? LOL). This swap is taking a really long time and I guess that's just frustrating.


:guilty:

Thanks for the update - lucky for me my DH is home today and can keep an eye out :magnify: for the postal carrier and check the front porch for it. I wish they would put packages at the side door like we asked but they just can't seem to remember - guess they have to many houses on their routes to worry about a request from one.

It's rainy and yucky here today :crazy:

Received my package today, 10/16. Was mailed out 10/13. Everything looks beautiful ladies; I am just disappointed it took so long to get mailed out especially after being told they were shipped on Oct. 7th.

Glad the final wave is arriving.

Potter, sorry you were disappointed. Things happen and there were a couple packages that got left behind and apparently one was yours. I've mailed alot of things the last couple of weeks. I am not perfect.

This was a fun swap to host, I thank you all for your patience and hope to swap with you all again.

Will check when I get home tonight. I really haven't had time to look at what is in the package - I just know it arrived. It could very well have an extra group 3 in it. Will post tomorrow and let you know.

It is in my package. I will mail it directly to you Ohana. I think I have your address but just in case I can't find it, Please send it to me in a pm.

Sandy

Edited to add - I forgot that I have your address in my calendar at work for mailing circle journals. No need to pm it to me. I have it ready to mail - just need to get a stamp for it.

Oh, thank you RealMickeysGirl
If you want, you can hold onto it until you send the next CJ. That'll save on postage.

Kathy,
Thank you so much. If it wasn't found I would NOT have let you send me your set!
