So I bought mine finally. I got 32 of them, since they came in sets of 16. So I've got plenty in case we have a sudden rush of people to sign up.
~Birth Bead Exchange Sign Up~ closes January 27th - Page 3
I'm a slacker! Haven't bought mine, but have gone to our local bead store to look. I have found many awesome ones that are like a million dollars each that I'd NEVER even be able to afford for myself to have just one. I have a few awesome smaller ones that I really like too. Now I just need to go there and pick them out. I think I'll have the 6 year old come with me to help out! She's good with beads!
I mailed my yesterday and am so excited! :-) All of the flat rate envelopes at our PO weren't padded, so I just bought a padded one and put $4 worth of stamps on it. It cost me less than $3 to mail mine, so I really hope that was enough postage.
I felt bad that I didn't include a thank you note or anything, so I'll thank you here instead - thanks so much for organizing this, OneMore! Have fun sorting. :-)
I'm looking forward to hearing about who sent what beads and if they have any significance. Part of me wants to tell about mine now, but another part thinks it would be more fun to wait until everyone has all of theirs. Any preference one way or another?
Aww thanks Ruby! It was no problem - you guys can all thank me when I pull this off right. LOL
I'm hoping to get it done with enough time to organize a mama or mama/baby gift exchange (not sure if there is any interest but we shall see)..I just think it is neat to do real life things with the DDC. Especially since some of us (*cough* ok me for sure) don't have friends or family anywhere near by and things like a baby shower are probably not going to happen. This is great because its all going to be a neat story to tell our babies later on :)
As for telling the bead stories, I think it would be neat to do it when every one gets their bead packages back so they have it in hand.
Sent mine off today it was a busy week...... I told the post woman what I was doing and she added some "fake" weight just to make sure. I hope its enough postage for return PLEASE PLEASE let me know if not I will promptly send the difference even if I wait because I don't want you spending any extra out of your own pocket! Thanks for doing this, Happy sorting :-)
Same here -- If I didn't include enough postage (which I may not have -- my beads were pretty light weight, but others might be heavier) just let me know and I'll send you the difference too.
What is everyone going to do with the beads? Make a bracelet? Necklace? Something else? I'm curious!
