Birth bead swap, anyone! - Page 5

Thread Starter 

I'll be mailing mine tomorrow - excited to see what everyone comes up with. I think putting together the necklace will be a nice meditative task to focus on preparing for labor and all of our journeys.

They'll be coming through a snow storm. But I have a cozy mailbox.

I finally sent mine today!!

How should we do the messages? I was thinking on index cards with holes punched in them. But do I have to attach them?

 

If I send them without messages, they'll get out sooner for sure.

Other mother, index cards would be great. You could tie them to the beads. A message isn't necessary though. Still waiting on plenty of people's beads though. So do what you want.

Got mine in the mail finally, so printing my message and getting those shipped out by Monday, yay!  I am a bit of a brat... I picked out two types of beads to order from Etsy and figured I'd decide which one to use when they got here, but I love them both so I'm sending both!  I figure ya'll can either use both or pick the one YOU like best.  Hopefully no one's upset I cheated a bit and was so indecisive!

Okeydoke. I will aim to do messages, but if I end up too overwhelmed with everything, I may just send them out as is.

Yeah, don't feel bad if it is too much, I at least didn't include messages. I figure I might post something in the thread for people once the beads get sent out.

That's a good idea Quinalla.

 

 

I tied mine with sewing thread, it was tricky since I lose my dexterity when my hands are in a flare from the RA.  I am so glad I did mine already.  Such a relief that I don't have to stress about that too!  I can't imagine have this moving catastrophe and wanting to do the beads too.  I'm really looking forward to receiving them!  So exciting!

Just wanted to bump this up to remind folks to send their beads soon if they haven't yet. Let's try to shoot for sending them by the end of this week if possible? Thanks ladies!

I'm going to send mine out tomorrow. They will not have messages on them but they are beautiful  :)

post #98 of 130

I am getting so excited!!  I can't wait to have a completed reminder that we are all in this together.  What a bond, ladies.  So special, and I know it'll give me a boost during labor.

 

I tied mine together with thread too, since I couldn't decide which of the two I ordered I liked better.  I figure people can choose for themselves or use both :)

Hi all, I went on vacation. I will be back on the first or second. Let's have all the beads by then and I can send them out. I will have to set up pay pal too for those of you that didn't send stamped envelopes. Back to relaxation. Peace out.
