Updated as of 10-10
Here's the scoop:
1. I have sorted everything and have the new swap packages in the envelopes that everyone mailed to me.
2. Tonight--or tomorrow night--I hope to repackage everything in new envelopes, address them and get them ready to mail.
3. My hope is to have everything in the mail by Thursday, Friday at the latest.

I want to thank everyone for being patient with me in getting these sorted. I spent most of last weekend in class, take the MAT for grad school admissions this Thursday night, and go to class again this Saturday.

As soon as they are mailed, I will change the title of this thread to "SENT BACK".

Keep your fingers crossed for no rain this afternoon at 3:30 to 5:30 cdt. It is supposed to be pouring down rain, right during ds football game!

P.S. You are going to love the items that are coming back to you! There is such a variety of really neat colors and textures for ribbons, fibers, and neat brads and eyelets. :thumbsup2

I packaged my 3 groups a few days ago...I didn't wrap the ribbon around anything, but it is still very neatly packaged in the little tiny baggies, which have little labels w/my group name/description and my DIS name. (sorry...I tried to get this all done and now I am the problem child who didn't follow the directions exactly! :blush: :teeth: )

:wave:

ready to mail as soon as I get your address!!! :yay:

Mine will be mailed tomorrow...Friday. I, too, packaged mine up before the directions. The only difference is the sizes of baggies (and I didn't wrap my fiber around anything). It all still fits in the flat-rate envelope.

Can't wait to get all the goodies!

I mailed my package today. You'll probably receive it Saturday or Tuesday. There was so much stuff that I sent it in a small box so you can just reuse the box when you send it back to me. I included too much postage but it's still cheaper than doing a flat rate box.

Thanks for hosting!! :sunny:

Mine will go postal tomorrow morning. I took it with me to mail with another swap today but somehow managed to leave Darlene's address at home. Oops. It hasn't been my day for coordinated postal mailings. I did pick up extra envelopes and mailing lables for the future to hopefully get me a little more coordinated in the future.

The stuff for Piratesmate, MsSocks & VanillaAngel went postal yesterday. I'd forgotten to give DDIL's DIS name when I signed her up. So for those of you getting something from VanillaAngel - that's my DDIL. :teeth:

Mine actually made it to the post office today, addressed and everything this time! It's the start of the school year and I feel like I've been leaving my brain on my desk. It's a good thing the students have been on their best behavior. I don't think I have the energy to stop them if they get off the walls.

Sorry for the delay- I did not make it to the post office yesterday because I spent the day at the doctor's office with my DS who has strep for the second time in three weeks....
Sorry,

just packaged mine tonight...ready for the post office. will stop by monday afternoon to drop it off.

btw...how do you use your ribbons & fibers? ribbons, i use for borders, and fibers for tags. i know, not very exciting, so any other creative ways to use them? since we'd be getting a variety of them soon, i thought i can get some ideas on what others have done w/them. i'm sure you've used it however you did, and i just haven't thought of it. so please share...thanx! :flower:

try heading to 2peas.com and searching by technique for fiber or ribbon, they have some absoluately amazing scrappers over there and I have no doubt that you'll find thousands of examples. They're a great site for inspiration.

How rude is it for the ribbon company to NOT PUT THE FULL AMOUNT ON THE SPOOL?

Now I'm not mailing till tomorrow...sheesh.....

I KNOW!! It is so annoying. I had that happen for my Valentine's ribbon. They were only six feet to begin with and still they short changed me on a roll. So one is short and was marked to send back to me. It was just too much of a hassel for one when it can just be me to not have enough.

:sad2:

I agree totally! What would it hurt to put an extra inch or two, than shorting by that amount?

I have also gotten brads and eyelets that were short, not by one but by two or three. Again, throw one extra in to be safe! :confused3

I am still waiting on a few packages. One I know is mailed, haven't heard from another person.

I just found out Tuesday that I have to go to BIST training Friday night and all day Saturday, so I plan to start sorting Sunday. There are a lot of groups and swappers, so it will take me some time as I can only work on it at night after school. Next week is also the end of the quarter, so I will have grading to do and grades to get done. So, if all goes well, I hope to have them mailed out by the end of next week. :sunny:
