Just returned from PO mailing my beads. I wrote HAND CANCEL on them all so the beads wouldn't get squashed in the machines. SO, they added an extra .12 to the price and said it would take a few extra days.
So, if you're on the five bead list, mine are coming slow but safely.
Thanks. Hope yall are feelin' good. My babies moving up and down and up and down. Either I can't breathe or I can hardly walk. Pretty funny.
So how are you all mailing your beads, more specifically what kind of packaging? I finally found the bead store near me Saturday and bought them. Wow what a choice of beads! I never realized here were so many out there. I am going to go back sometime and make myself a nursing necklace or two also.
Yipppeeeee....I got my first 2 beads, I already have 3 strung on my bracelet...I"m putting them on as I get them (otherwise I will lose them...I have total placenta brain!) So I have my own and Melia's and Aubin's- its looking good. It made me so happy to get the letters/beads! My beads are out and on the way. I didn't do the hand cancel thing but I wrapped them in a little piece of bubble wrap so hopefully that will be okay.
Melia, I got your envelope and note, but the bead wasn't in there. There was a small hole at the bottom of the envelope so it must have fallen out somewhere in transit. Thank you for the note though, it was very sweet.
OMG!!!! I hope that doesn't keep happening!!! I mailed my beads out before y'all, so I didn't even think about all the bubble wrap, etc, y'all have been talking about! That totally sucks. Please let me know if this keeps happening and I'll see about getting some more beads. Sorry. Melia
The beads I sent out were sent back to me! 5 of them anyway, and I'll bet the other 5 will be back here today. Apparently beads can't be sent in a regular letter envelope. Grrrr. : I'll have to go to the post office and ask the "proper" way to send them.
I sent mine in a regular envelope too, I hope they get there! Let me know. I put them in tissue paper so maybe they wont notice. I told the guy it was beads and he just had me use a special stamp (50 cents) so he could hand cancel them.
uh-oh...hope mine are okay. I didn't hand cancel or anything. they haven't come back yet though and I mailed them on Tuesday. Oh well, even if they do we still have time to get them to each other in time.
