View Full Version : christmas swap due nov 1st (checking in thread) update p 3

10-11-2005, 04:48 PM
hey guys, ok this is now the official checking in thread. :) please pm me for my address because at this point, half of you probably have it from previous swaps anyhow and I have no idea who still needs it. (such organisation, I know). anyhow, please mail enough postage with your swap items so that I can mail it back to you (so if you want it back priority mail, 3.85 would be the amount to send). these are the people I have received swap stuff from so far:

4lil tinks
sweet maxine
jedi librarian
disneyland emily

If anyone has any questions, just let me know. maggie

Should I wait until about Saturday to mail then? Would you rather it arrive when you're there to receive it? I fugure if I mail on Saturday, it should get there by Monday. Just let me know.

10-12-2005, 10:56 AM
dh is home so you can mail it whenever. :) maggie

To all those in my group -storebought grp 2 (I think)

My brads all came in except the Christmas tree ones (backordered-they are expected to ship 10/22) Would you rather me wait until I get back from CKU-A to see if they come in. That would mean I would be shipping out to Maggie on 10/31 she should rec by 11/2. Or would you rather I just ship now and send each of you the tree brads when they come in? Of course there's always the chance they won't actually ship by the date they've given me.
Don't worry- you guys are getting a lot more than 5 brads (more like 20 or 25!) So even if I send the trees out seperatly you'll still have a bunch there!

Let me know

Mine finally went postal today.

10-14-2005, 06:48 PM
Mine isn't ready, but I'm on top of things. You'll have it by the first Maggie. ;)

And Sara.....I have no problem waiting so you can mail it all at the same time if no one else objects, but either way is fine with me for the brads.

10-15-2005, 07:24 AM
sounds like everything is coming along nicely for everyone, that's great! :goodvibes Sara, if you want to wait, that's fine with me, just keep me posted. :goodvibes maggie

10-16-2005, 09:50 AM
I should be going to the post office tomorrow. I have had everything packed up and ready to go, but with all the rain last week I didn't venture out that much.

10-17-2005, 04:19 PM

10-18-2005, 11:22 AM
Well, I bagged up the other brads! So I get back from CKU-A on the 30th. Hopefully the tree brads come by then and I will mail to Maggie on the 31st. I'll keep you posted because I don't want to hold up the swap.

10-19-2005, 03:10 PM

Mine was mailed off today- Stamp is loose in the big baggie so be alert :)


10-24-2005, 03:45 PM
hey emily, your stuff got her today, nice job! maggie

10-24-2005, 05:49 PM
I just finished the abcs, so will finish these up this week and hopefully put them in the mail Friday.

I take my mom to the pain specialist doctor tomorrow, so hope that doesn't mean a slew of other stuff this week. If so, I will be behind! Keep your fingers crossed. :flower:

10-30-2005, 10:14 AM
I am done. I have bagged everything and marked who it is for. Will put it in the mail today or tomorrow. Need to finish the popcorn tally/order sheets and of course, still have 2 people who have not given it to me! (It was due on Monday night!!!!!) :flower:

10-30-2005, 09:20 PM
I don't even know where to begin with this...maybe at the end? Mine wasn't mailed & most likely won't get mailed until Tuesday. I'm really, really sorry!

I was all but finished - and I was just trying to decide about which poem to use of the ones I had printed...hoping for inspiration so I put it off thinking I'd do it Saturday morning & put them in the mail before lunch.

DH started moving furniture around in the living room where I'd been working on Saturday morning. He told me he'd be finished in an hour or two so I figured I'd just mail everything Monday instead - sometimes it's easier not to argue with him. :confused3

If you could see my living room right now :sad2: He decided to completely rearrange everything, which involved moving bookcases from downstairs to upstairs - and packing everything not nailed down into boxes while moving! I didn't know he was packing the bookcases until he was halfway finished with the one where I'd put the swap stuff.

My swap stuff is somewhere in one of the many boxes. :confused3 I could just cry! :sad2: If you're willing to wait, the fastest thing at this point would be for me to just re-do my stuff. Fortunately all of my scrapping supplies were in another room. I think I can get them done by Monday evening & in the mail by Tuesday. Can you wait?

10-31-2005, 12:33 AM
Yes, I can wait.

Husbands! Sometimes their ideas of "helping" creates more troubles than you can imagine! :confused3

10-31-2005, 07:07 AM
not to worry, there are a few others who have pm'd me to let me know that their stuff was going to be late as well. :) maggie

10-31-2005, 07:22 AM
Yes, I can wait.

Husbands! Sometimes their ideas of "helping" creates more troubles than you can imagine! :confused3

If you had any idea how many times I've come home to find the house rearranged! :rolleyes: I know many women would be thrilled to have a husband who was willing to move furniture, but let me tell you! :guilty: He lulled me into a false sense of security this time...I used to find things rearranged about every 6 months - no warning, just as the urge struck! Can we say ADD? (And yes, he does have it, I'm not being fresh.) But this time I think it's been almost a year since he did more than move stuff from one cabinet to another.

The all time worst, though, are the times when I find him in the kitchen rearranging the cabinets! :headache: OMG! He doesn't cook at all and he'll put pots in a new place I can't reach, move the spices to somewhere totally inconvenient...AUGH!!

Thanks for letting me vent. I've learned it isn't worth it to argue over it...totally not worth it! And hey - he does the laundry since I can't use our basement steps! That makes up for an awful lot! :teeth:

10-31-2005, 10:31 AM
my things just went postal! :cool1:

10-31-2005, 10:47 AM
Hi all!! Just back from CKU-A....AWESOME!!! Although the hotel was awful!
Anyways...the tree brads didn't come...so I'm going postal today with the others...like I said...everyone got a lot more than just 5. When the trees come in I will mail to each person in my group!
Thanks for hosting Maggie!!

11-01-2005, 07:17 PM
got pam's today, very cute! maggie

11-02-2005, 09:17 AM
Okay, life has got in the way of scrapbooking again! I have not gotten to the post office yet, but will go today when I drop off my mom to get her hair cut!

11-04-2005, 07:12 AM
sorry, also have disney cruisers stuff, very cute1 I think we are just waiting on 4 people, all of whom I have heard from. So hopefully in a few days I will have everything and will swap out. maggie

11-04-2005, 11:21 AM
Did you get my email? I have the wrong addy for you...could you please email it to me again? Also, I'm including blank envies...could I bug you to address them to the gals in my group and send them back to me so when the tree brads come in I can send them directly to the gals. Thnaks


11-04-2005, 03:49 PM
hey, I did get your email and I sent you my address, guess it got lost in cyberspace. I just emailed you again. (my zip code is 20147 though if that's all you need) maggie

11-04-2005, 04:04 PM
Maggie - Did you get mine yet? I sent it on Tuesday afternoon. I forgot to mention it at the time. Sorry

11-04-2005, 06:04 PM
hey, nope not yet, hopefully tomorrow. :) maggie

11-04-2005, 06:09 PM
This is it. I am off to the post office as soon as I hit submit.

This past week has been nothing but a bed of coals concerning my ds's football team! I would tell you all about it, but the disboards doesn't have enough room! Let's just say that there are some parents that cannot keep their noses out of what is going on and have stirred up trouble all season, cost us a coach and several players, and are now starting to create anomosity (sp?) among the kids! They need to get a life and not their kids!!! I need Calgon and a nice glass of wine (though they seem to thrive on whine!)

Got to go. Hopefully you will get this MOnday or Tuesday. I am so, so sorry for the delay!

11-04-2005, 07:28 PM
It is in the mail! Of course, when I got there, there were no priority flat rate envelopes by the self-serve machine! So I had to run back to the car and get a popcorn sales envelope and part of a box to use as support. UGH!!!!!!!!!

But my good deed of the day was giving a stamp to this young man who needed to mail his mother's bd card and of course, the stamp machine was out as well and the self serve only does debit or credit.

Now I am off to my son's 9 p.m. football game--tournament--that is in a town about 45 minutes away and of course, they have to be there at 7:30!!!

Got mine today! Oh my! These are too cute!

Who made the Christmas cookie envelope, and how did you make the "cookie". I love all the embellishments too! The tree with the "ornaments" is soooo cute too! How are ya'll doing that printing on transparencies?

Love the Christmas Eve & Christmas morning things too!

Thanks everyone! And thank you Maggie for hosting!
