Birth bead swap (Sending time!) - Page 5

Bethany, I got yours today! It's beautiful, thank you!

I'm sorry Nicole.

So many of my beads have *barely* made it to me (holes in the envelopes). One was missing the bead as well. Desiree's envelope to me had been completey torn in half and looked like it had been run over. At least the post office had the courtesy to stick the two halves in another envelope and send it that way (and believe it or not the beads stayed put!)

I can't wait to start stringing the beads together.

Oh no! Sorry it came like that! Was there still 3 beads in it?

Yes, Desiree, there were still three beads in it. I don't know how they made it, but they did!

Hi everyone, sorry Im behind in responding, my monitor blew out and I was in withdrawels for days!

Anyway I received beads from Bethany, Melia, Rebecca, Desiree, and Kelly. Thank You!!!

But nothing from: Nicole, Jenny, Erin, or Aubin

I think everyone should have gotten mine by now, I mailed them about a week ago.

I got yours Julie, they are beautiful! Good thing you had them wrapped so well, there was only one layer of tissue left keeping them in the envelope by the time I got it.

That is soooo frustrating, I paid for it to not go through the machine and I thought I put ample tissue paper around them, arrggg. Probably whoever used the bubble wrap had the best idea.

Did anyone else not get theirs? I will go down and get some more to resend.

Sorry Desiree!

No no! No need to resend or apologize, it's not your fault! Some of the ones I sent came ripped open to people too (and I did the hand cancel thing too! I swear they dont care!)

Better late than never?

I apologize mamas, but I just got your birth beads out this weekend. I have had a pretty rough last few weeks thanks to my husband's employer and little games they were trying to play about keeping him out of town until the baby's birth. Now that is finally settled (he's home!), so I finally got the birth beads out that I bought weeks ago.

I really apologize for my tardy participation in this, and I hope you get them without incident this week.

I wouldn't let myself open any of the letters I got until I did my part, so I have that to look forward to tonight.

Ok, so I'm still sitting on this tempting stack of notes and beads. I haven't opened a single one yet. I'm really really waiting until I'm ready. Somehow I feel like the sheer power and love from them all will send me into labor! AND, i'm not QUITE ready yet!

Have you heard all the stories about women going into labor right after their blessingways? I just feel like something similar might happen with me. Silly? Maybe. But, I'm still waiting. I don't quite feel it's the "right" time yet.

At the same time, i'm really ready to post thank yous! Did anyone get theirs from me? I haven't seen. I didn't "Hand Cancel" them. But they were all in thicker cards with some fabric wrapped around.

Oooh! I will do!

I didn't consider that possibility! I could be opening up a bunch of Baby Stay Put letters! Taht might just throw a kink into my "Throw me into labor" idea! :

REally it was SO nice of you to add me to your lists. I really really appreciate it.

SPARK! I got the most beautiful amber colored beads right at the end of last week. !! Thank you thank you thank you!! I LOVE amber. Now open mine. I chose a green bead for life power.

Your beads were the perfect match for the arrangement I had going.

I just had a blessing way and got more beads, too. Now, I have the necklace of my dreams.

What's this about Blessing Ways triggering labor?

All the ladies at the BW were impressed that we had all swapped beads online. There was so much character in our exchange. Thanks to you all.

This chatting has been a blessing in itself to me.

Spark, I got your beads, and I've tied all of mine up in the fabric you sent, to keep them safe until I can string them together.

So I have amber beads, a coconut bead, a pretty green bead, and a kitty bead. Yay!! Thanks, everyone.
