Whatever wishes/beads/thoughts you want to send it up to each individual! That's what makes it fun and different! I'm sure the bracelets will be very unique and gorgeous when they are done!

Mailing Info for Beads

Hey Mamas,

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.

Mine are all packaged and ready to go! I'm taking them to the post office in the morning (Saturday) so you should all have them soon!

I just bought the beads today, so they'll go out Monday. Sorry if they're late everyone! At least they will get there before anyone gives birth . And I just got my first one today! Thanks Jessica!

Edited to add: Also meant to say that this is really cool. I'm having a blessingway in November and all of the beads will go on my necklace. I'm so excited about it!

I also got my beads today and they'll go out on Monday. I can't wait to see what everyone else chose!

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.

I just wrapped them in tissue paper (like the decorative stuff for inside gift bags) and put them in an envelope.

Melia, I got yours! Thank you so much! It's very pretty! I cant wait to string it on to make the bracelet! Thank you for the well wishes too!!

FYI- I did the hand cancel thing too but they didnt say it would be longer than usual but if it is, then you know why. LOL

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.

Aubin, got your bead! Thank you so much!

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.

Thank you Aubin! I got yours today too! Very pretty! Did they make you add that custom form? They didnt tell me I had to add one to yours so I am hoping there is no problems!

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

Melia, I received mine - there was a hole on the bottom but luckily the bead stayed in!

Thank you!

My beads will be LATE, sorry

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.

Sorry ladies!

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.

Yay! I'm so glad you like it.

I got your card, but there was a hole in the envelope and the bead must have fallen out. Such a sweet card, though!
