Hi Everyone - I'm back from WDW. Whew, and thank goodness too! :earseek:

Anyway, Here are the final details of the swap. I hope to PM all the participants my addy by the end of today. Hopefully, my Dd's will cooperate! :) ETA: PM's have all been sent!

1. First and foremost, this swap is due on Jan 15th. So, please have your items shipped out to me by the 15th.

2. Since communication is so important, please PM me after you’ve shipped out your package so I know to look out for it. I’ll do the same once I ship out your package.

3. For shipping, please separate your items from different groups into separate baggies/envelopes. Also make sure you put your Group # on the baggies/envelopes. If you’ve made separate colors for people, separate those too and mark which items go to which people. Since it’s winter and there’s a chance everything could get wet, put all individual baggies into a larger bag.

4. Since postage is going up on the 1st, please include $5 or a $5 stamp. I'll have to mail out the packages in boxes or extra large envelopes b/c the 12" borders don't fit in regular priority mail envelopes. So keep that in mind when heading to the post office. If there is any left over $$ I will mail it back to you in your package.

5. Make sure you include your return address and your username somewhere in your package, so I can get everything back to you.

6. If you have anything comes up and cannot complete your swap items, please let me know ASAP. That way, we can hopefully get a swap angel or at least get everyone’s items back in a timely matter.


Please make a 4x6 photo mat and 2 more elements of your choosing for your page kit:

Topper – 8 ˝ inches
Set of 2 borders – 11 inches
Frame (4x6)
Tag (at least 2x3) – including fiber and/or eyelet
Journal box with at least 2x2 space

okay ... forgive the newbie ... Are you guys just really early, or am I missing something. If it's due Jan 15th, we have to get it to the host by the 15th of January, right? This is my first swap. I see a few of you mentioning you are ready to ship ... do I understand correctly?

nicurn
12-12-2005, 06:33 AM
yes, it's got to be AT the host's house BY the 15th of january. So really you should have it done and in the mail by jan 10th at the latest. Sometimes people get stuff done early because they are inspired, nothing to panic about though. maggie

calanniebu
12-12-2005, 08:26 AM
ahh ... thanks for clarifying. I was starting to panic thinking it was due the 15th of December so that the host could ship by the 15th of January.

just a bump up so y'all can find it. I'm completely done and will mail out probably monday. maggie

hey girls don't forget postage is going up on the 1st of the year...you may want to mail before the increase if you can....and remember to enclose more than the 3.85 you usually use, it will cost more now.....

Does anyone know what Priority will be next year? (I of course already bought my stamps - not remembering that things were going up!)

Ahh, thanks for bumping this for me. The search function is still not working for me. Is there anyway we can add this to the Swap Sticky?

As for postage, I had no idea that it was going up, but I have to run to the post office today or tomorrow so I will ask then.

hey all, just bumping this up again as the deadline is fast approaching. I really (really) am mailing mine out next week, I didn't want it to get lost in all the christmas mail. apparently priority mail is going up to 4.05 as well. maggie

I have my Valentine's items all done and now I have to get the back to school things done. I need to get to the lss to get paper for them. They should be done by the end of next week and mailed in plenty of time. I can't wait to get the things back from this swap!

PBLM: Will you be getting flat-rate envelopes from the PO or do you need us to send you an envelope for the return mail??

I'm done and will be postal on Tuesday. Please let me know if you need me to enclose an envelope. Thanks!!

Mine went postal today.

I put a $3.85 return stamp, plus some extra stamps since the postage is going up on 1/8/06.

Okay, I'll be looking for them! :)

Anyone know how much return postage we are suppose to put in?

nicurn

4.05 I think, maggie

PBLM are you looking for an angel for the groups that MaryPoppinsLives is in? Since she is MIA, I highly doubt she'll send her stuff in for this swap either and I think it might be better to know that now rather than later...

I was getting concerned about her. She hasn't posted anything since Nov. 30th or so and she hasn't even checked the PM I sent with my addy. I think I will look for a swap angel. Thanks for reminding me.

I put mine in the mail today. I'm really looking forward to getting this swap back-it was fun to do!

I just got back from the PO too so mine are on their way. The long line of folks waiting in line to buy the new stamps was not happy as I was mailing off 6 swaps! :confused3

Just checking in ... I was trying to go postal today but was sick all week and am just getting my second one finished. Just sent the DBF to the post office with our christmas rebates. I'll go postal on Monday!

OH, one quick question, and my apologies if it's a stupid one. :confused3 Should I include 6 of each or 5 of each b/c I'm the sixth person in the group ... or does the sixth one go to the host for hosting? or ???

Let me know! TIA!

I can answer this in case PBLM doesn't get on today. You make 6 and 1 of the 6 comes back to you. I guess it's just easier to make the packets up if there's one for everyone in the group including you. Make sense? Probably not, I tried though! :rotfl:

Nope, makes perfect sense. :-) Thanks for getting back to me ...

Yup, what she said. I think it would be easier to have all 6 sets. That way when I double check everything, I can just look for 6 sets per person/group. :)

Don't worry about it. I might have said that and just don't remember. :rotfl: I'll be able to figure it out though.
