To the ladies who participated in the bead exchange

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 

Sorry for the update here, but my Gmail isn't working and I wanted to let you all know that the packages went out this morning.  Each bead is in an individual baggie with the note from the sender stapled to the baggie (except for AfricanQueen, who tied the labels to her beads).  I also included a baggie with a clear elastic, so you can make your bracelet.  To tie the knot with the elastic, make 3-4 knots (one on top of the other) and then pull the ends very tightly (the elastic won't break and the knots will then be secure).

 

Unfortunately, while I was calculating postage and sealing up packages at the post office this morning, three bead baggies fell out (two amber and one purple) and it was impossible to tell from which envelopes they originated.  If you find that your package is missing:

 

a) a very small oval-shaped amber-colored bead (from Sarah) AND/OR

b) a round purple bead with white specks (from Milly_P)

 

please e-mail me ASAP to the mothering group address with your mailing address and I will send out your bead(s) immediately.  I'm sorry about this!

 

Happy beading, everyone!

Oh, and my bead was also an amber/orangish oval carnelian.  The and/or may indicate a missing bead from me....

That's why I specified that the sender of the little amber bead was Sarah, so that people wouldn't confuse that with yours (I made sure each label had the sender's name on it so people would know who they were from).  Everyone got a bead from you, so hopefully they'll double-check to make sure who the sender was before they contact me.  It's only two beads, so I'm not too worried about mass confusion.  :)

Yes, thank you so much MontessoriMama and Cedarwoman!!!  I can't wait to get my beads!!

post #10 of 36

Oh... I missed that!  I thought the AND/OR referred to the fact that the first missing bead may have been from Sarah or.....   another person you couldn't remember.

ANYWAY.... it's obvious now!  Sorry, I have congested cold head. 

 

Thanks again!  I'm so excited to get my beads!

You guys did an amazing job with the beads... I loved every single one of them and I couldn't wait to be done sorting so I could make my own bracelet.  :)  I proudly wore it out to lunch and kept thinking how incredible it was that we are all sharing in this experience of birth.

I got mine this afternoon! Thanks to everyone! It was so much fun looking at them and reading everyone's comments!

Mine showed up yesterday and they're gorgeous and every one of them just has such sweet inspiration.  Thank you all so much.  I can't wait to string them up and wear them.

post #20 of 36

I just received my beads and they are beautiful.... just beautiful!  Thank you so much everyone!  I will be so honored to string them and wear them....

 

 

Pilar, on a side note......

I am missing a bead and it actually isn't one from Milly or Sarah.... it is the one from Angela (African Queen).  I got the message without bead attached.  Did you end up with an extra from her?
