Hello, mine went in the mail tonight. It sent by surface mail, as it's too expensive otherwise. It should take no longer than 2 wks. I didn't put a note in mine, however my name and return address are on the envelopes.

So long as you have at least one magnet of $5 minimum value anything extra after that is entirely up to you. I had 3 to go out also and I added something extra in, not as much as I would like as all mine are International.

It is going international, so the post office said 4-6 days. Hopefully, it will get there in the 4 and not the 6. LOL

Hi,
Sabrina Received her packege today. Maybe she's the foirst to receive. She's 4, so she loves mail. It was from Meriweather, AKA Nancy. Thanks so much. When I told her that you were the Mommy to Lilly, Wally, Buster and Bianca, she was even more excited as she always has to look at the photo of your animals. Sabrina received a Washington State Magnet, a Mt. St. Helen's Magnet, a magnet of Alaska, and her favorite a Duck magnet made from a peach seed, pom pom and corn kernel. She also received 4 really neat Monster's Inc. noisy zippered pouch books. ( Nancy, help me out. What are they called?) She's already repeating the jokes in one of the books. She was also playing with the magnets earlier and making pictures to put underthem on the fridge. Thanks again Nancy. You sure made little Sabrina Happy.

The duck magnet is actually an almond :)
Not exactly sure what those thing are called :rotfl: Zippered joke character backbag clip things :rotfl: Interesting though, aren't they? ;)

I was reading through the diary last night and when I came to the Holidays I just had to laugh, I guess I didn't realize that they wouldn't be American Holidays. It was interesting to see the different holidays.
What are Public Holidays?

Nutsy

I can answer that one for you Carrie. A public holiday is a day when businessess are closed, schools etc.

Like Labour Day and your American Independance, Queens Birthday etc.

Can see Auriel has answered that for you Carrie :sunny:

'Public Holidays' are also called 'Bank Holidays', we have 8 per year. We don't have as many of these as you have American Holidays but I understand that in general people get more paid holiday from work, the average amount is 20 working days per year with extra days added for the amount of time you're worked at a company. Some people get more than that though, lucky things! :wave:

One of yours is offline at the moment.. she has just moved to college and is not sure just when she will be able to accesss the internet. But the addy you had was for her parents. So they may well have arrived, just we haven't heard as yet.

As soon as she gets internet access, she will jump on and let us know. I sent to her also and I do know that mine had arrived. She was moving to college the following day and I happened to be in touch just in time.

-post card
-2 magnets of Newforest UK
Thank you Annie so much they are very nice.

Hi - yes, the bear is depicting the Royal Palace Guard - a Beefeater! The men who guard the Tower of London (where the Queen's jewels are held) really do wear a frock uniform that looks very much like that :confused3 Beats me, but we're full of old worldy traditions over here!

Glad you liked them :thumbsup2

I know that one lady in the Uk sent by surface (Post Office never even mentioned air and she wasn't aware there was more than one way).. but as for the rest.. they should all have arrived by now.

Will wait a few more days and then we'll see.

I think mine not arriving to my exchangees might be my fault :guilty: . When I went to the PO the clerk was chatting up a storm with me and just rang up the postage without asking how I wanted to send it. I asked when they would arrive, he said Wed. so I just assumed he sent everything first class.

I'll resend if they don't arrive by Sat. 9/24.

if a package is sent ground to another country it can take 2 months.....depends on when the ship is leaving in relation to when the package reaches the shipyard.

Im willing to help out if I can and be an ELF.This was my first exchange and I just found out what you were all talking about (ELF).

Hope all those who are waiting get their packages soon. :wizard:

The postcards are lovely too and so a really big THANK YOU to Margie, Crazyme5kids for all the goodies. It took ages to get here but it was well worth it :thumbsup2 :sunny:

Glad it arrived safe and sound
the Banner magnets were what i was worried about breaking
I got them in a little "adirondack" type store and went straight to the PO and
forgot to bring packing material
so I scrounged at the PO and found a little scrap of bubble wrap and a plastic bag
glad that was enough to keep them safe :teeth:

Wow!! Carys received another package through the post yesterday from crazyme5kids!! :cheer2: :cheer2: :cheer2:

Can you believe the first package took a month to arrive and the second one only 4 days - the postal system is completely weird! :confused3

Anyway, Margie, thank you so much .... again! :love: Carys was at her Dad's yesterday so only opened the package this afternoon and was thrilled once more! You have so spoilt her. She loves all the pencils and she now has magnets everywhere (but I have snaffled the New York skyline one and it's now stuck right by my computer for me to look at every day :) )

The stickers are fab and she's going to take them to school near Halloween and give all her friends one!

You have been so kind and it is so appreciated, a big huge thank you and also a big hug from Carys is being sent to you over the ocean. Carys has asked that I arrange to send you a little something as thanks - and hopefully it won't take a month to arrive! :Pinkbounc

glad you got it! I didn't realize til I mailed it that I forgot to put the note in. Hectic everywhere I guess!

Were you headed to NYC? I was there Sat, too! I know--HUGE place!:rotfl2:

It was the first time I saw a play--had a blast walking around, too.


Glad you had fun in NYC! What play did you see? I saw Beauty and the Beast the Sun. before this past weekend. This weekend I went in to see where my husband's new office is (right on 42nd St.) and went to see the Eric Clapton concert.

I really have to get back to checking the boards more often!

We saw The Producers. It was really good--love Mel Brooks. I had wanted to see Beauty and the Beast...Donny Osmond! Sorry, I'm old!...but my friend didn't seem too interested in it at first. Later, we wished we had gone! Plan on going back in Dec since we had a blast!

Donny Osmond was so good, very funny. you'll love it, the sets and costumes are fantastic. I didn't think I would like it as much as I did.

Auriel do you need another elf package sent?

Not as of yesterday Marilynn


ETA... If they were sent surface, then it will be another couple of weeks at least before there is news of their arrival.. Surface or Sea Mail takes at least 8 weeks out of the busy season... can take up to 3 months.

Yeah, I was thinking that last night.. I do know though that that person recently lost her Mum very suddenly and was in a real muddle as her DS lives in Mexico and she was trying to get him home to the UK.

I might pop an e-mail her way to see how she's going and ask about the magnets at the same time.:goodvibes

This is not looking good....all elf packages were sent about 2 weeks ago and should have arrived by now. The last one went out 2 weeks ago today..

I GOT MY MAGNETS! THEY HAVE ARRIVED! :cool1: :dance3:

Thank you Auriel for the great Australia magnets, pins and postcards.

It was a long wait but completely worth it! :cheer2: :cheer2:

Also thank you very much Nutsy for hosting this exchange. I know that it must have been frustrating at times but it was great fun!

Excellent!!! So glad they arrived... 2 weeks, but finally they got there, glad you liked your goodies too::yes:: ::yes::

Something definately is not right here:sad1:

So, if mine took 2 weeks from Australia to Canada (and I know the mail into Canada can be a tad slow).. where are the others that were sent before then??? They were only going from the US to the UK... half as far.:confused3

One of those still waiting has been offline due to the sudden loss of her Mum... but the other two have been online and have not received either their original exchange or their second:confused3

Something weird going on here, how can 4 packages just not arrive????????:confused: :sad2:

Mine still haven't arrived, naughty postman. Wonder where the heck they are :confused3 :confused3

And poor Nutsy, all this extra hassle.

It's most unusual for so many packages to have gone astray, and to be taking so long.

Hope it doesn't put anyone off in the future.

Hope my second package arrives soon:hourglass ; it seems ages since I sent both of mine overseas :moped:

Hi

Today dd recieved a package from Marilynn coombs from Ontario Canada, it was posted on 23rd Aug 06, so it took a while to get here, but it contained some lovely magnets and a pack of playing cards so a big thank you to Marilynn :goodvibes


Cabmom... your magnets have finally landed in Spain:)

Jan - "Janskin" - thank you, thank you. I had a lovely package arrive this morning from Jan containing a Texas magnet (very nice), some beautiful Bluebonnet seeds and some sweeties (how did you know I was on a low sugar diet :teeth: ).

Poor Jan, she must have been really worried that her package was never going to get here - it was posted on 1st September!! Naughty post people indeed.

Jan - thanks again, I am so going to enjoy planting my bluebonnet seeds, can't think of anyone else around here that will have those in their gardens next Spring :sunny: :sunny:

Regards
Annie :wave2:

That is so excellent Annie::yes:: ::yes:: ::yes::

So, glad they finally landed... it's been a long wait.

And on that note.. it seems we can finally call it a wrap... still have one person offline, but it's just a matter of waiting till she is back online and posts that she has received.

Thanks everyone and especially the elfs, without whom the end would never have come.:thumbsup2

Been there myself.
