J in MI
K in CA ---- which one of you sent the pebble beads and which one of you sent the green beads? both beads fell out of the envelopes while I was going through the list of people. My luck. lol
Ok thanks Cristeen :D & Thank you Sky for your kind words!
No beads today from any one just so you all know.
I came home to an unpleasant surprise - my package was returned for insufficient postage :( I weighed the envelope and put on even more postage than I needed to. I've never had this problem before.
I'm going to go to the post office tomorrow and do flat rate priority and hope it gets to you by Saturday. the package doesn't have that far to travel, so fingers crossed.
No problem Maryam...No stress. I know shipping can sometimes be a PITA so that's why we started organizing this exchange earlier in our pregnancies rather than later cause there are always some kind of delays that creep up with these kinds of things. We all have lives, we all understand! :)
Ok grand update for everyone :
We have received in the mail a total of: 14 pkgs - 1 of which had to be resent due to a machine getting extra hungry and eating part of the envelope containing the beads. :( Mama was contacted and is resending beads. That will be here sometime this week - possibly by tomorrow or wednesday.
I am sponsoring one mama's beads and then my own = so add two to the 14 = 16 pks total.
I should have 4 more packages from my calculation. One of you smarties double check me on my math. Remember that GoddessMommy had to drop out.
I was thinking
I will wait until Friday and then send out unless some one contacts me. Does that sound just to you all?
I don't want to be unfair or make any one angry, cause I know things come up - so let me know what you all think :D
If you haven't sent it out yet - please PM me or post here so I know to wait just a little bit longer.
No stressing from me or any one else, just want to be as communicative as possible :)
Two more lovely women have contacted me and will be shipping their beads by Monday....:)
Totally understand things coming up and thankful for the communication ladies!
I decided that WEDNESDAY FEB. 29th is the last day to have your beads to me by, so if you are one of the other two women I haven't spoke with please ship no later than Monday the 27th of Feb so we can include you too! <3
March 2nd is the day I will ship every one's beads out to them. I hope no one minds the delay. I don't want to see any one excluded!
There is a gift exchange sign up happening in another thread. Sign up is until the end of the first week of March. You will ship a gift to a random mama by April 1st and another random mama will ship a gift to you. If you want to sign up for that while you are waiting for this to wrap up - please do. It will be fun :)
ugh, I will let you know if I get mine out! hope to be able to go tomorrow... but my new work schedule has totally thrown me off... I have about an hour where I only have one kid and am not working during the day... I am going to skip out early tomorrow though! I am one of the slacker moms ;)
