I bought mine last night too, and I will send them out this week.

post #42 of 102

Is it ok for me to post here what beads I bought?  I will put it under a spoiler tag in case someone wants to be surprised.

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I got unakite beads because (if you believe in this stuff) unakite is supposed to be good for pregnancy and childbirth, and for love and calming.  It's a swirly pink and green - really pretty I think.

Ooh, that spoiler tag is neat!

Cyclamen, I was going to quote you, but I saw that when clicked to, it showed the spoiler, and I want to be surprised, so I couldn't. But I don't think it's bad if you post what beads. (But thank you for spoiler tag, just in case.) smile.gif

My beads are in the mail!

post #47 of 102

Mine are also in the mail.

 

I apologize in advance for their small size. I didn't realize, when I ordered them online, just how tiny they were. But they should make great spacer beads, and I sent two for each participant. They're supposedly, vintage Czech glass. But I won't say what color or shape they are, in case people want to be surprised.

 

ETA: Were we supposed to include a self-addressed envelope? I didn't, because I only have Canadian postage. So when the beads get sent back out, please let me know what the postage was and I can paypal it.

Those sound really neat! smile.gif

 

A self addressed envelope wasn't necessary. smile.gif I'm PM-ing you.

Do you have a paypal account? I never seem to have any cash in the house, and am too lazy to go to the bank. Otherwise, I'll borrow from dd's toothfairy money ;)

dizzy.gif I bought my beads over the weekend but I haven't had a chance to print up the cards to go with them. I should be able to get to it tonight and will hopefully get them in the mail tomorrow. Sorry I'm so late!

I just sent mine without notes or anything. I don't have the mental capacity these days to handle that extra step. lol

You're fine. I'm still waiting on a couple of peoples' beads. I got 3 sets, so far, so still waiting on 8, and to be honest, I still have to buy mine. hide.gif So don't feel too bad. I was waiting on my tax check to come to get mine, and it was supposed to be in sometime last week, but didn't get here until yesterday. It's all gravy. smile.gif

So far, I've received about half of the beads, so still waiting on a few more to get here. I'll write here who's beads I've gotten so far, so in case you've sent them, and you're like me, you don't have to freak out about them getting lost in the mail. orngtongue.gif

 

1. Munchkin08

2. Cagnew

3. Cyclamen

4. Stormysky

5. IronMam

6. Bmcneal

7. magpiemind

 

I would like to be able to send them out no later than March 1st, to make sure that all our mama's have them in time. smile.gif

 

I can't believe we're getting so close! There are so many February babies already, I keep expecting to see March exploding with new babes, soon, too. orngtongue.gif

My beads are all ready to go, just need to pop them in the mail tomorrow. We missed the cut off yesterday and I didn't want them sitting in the mailbox all weekend. Should be to you in the next day or two!
