Hi mama bead mamas,
Im sooo sorry for the delay in my responses to you all. We are currently without phone or internet and stupid me I didnt think to check on the boards/pm box. I was reminded of the swap when the first set of beads arrived today. YEAH! If you havent sent them yet, dont worry, Im not one for being on time myself so if you are a little late...no biggie, just try and get them out by the end of the week and just let me know when to expect them. If you want to paypal me the money, thats fine too, just paypal me at seekermage @ hotmail . com

Also, if you havent sent the beads yet try and send all of the same bead, size shape etc. I just recieved two wonderful assortments of beads that Im ga-ga over, it will just make the sorting harder having them different. It all works though so no worries....they will be wild and wonderful necklaces thats for sure!

Thanks again to everyone for joining. I will try and be much better about getting on top of things and updating everyone. Everything is going good with the baby thus far. Other then horrible tailbone issues and pregnancy induced carpal tunnel....ugg the numb hands, please excuse any mistakes! THanks again, you all are a wonderful bunch of ladies and I wish you all the best. I hope to check in again soon as time allows...my parents computer is sooooo sloooowwww but I will try my best. Please pm me if you have questions, I will check it sooner then later. Thanks so much

30 was the magic number, I believe.

I found the design I liked last week -- woohoo! -- and will be mailing them out tomorrow or Tuesday, depending on how long it takes to dig my van out of 2 feet of snow!

I sent mine out this morning. They're all the same size (well, as much as beads get ) and shape, but the swirls on them are a few different colors. Hope that doesn't make things any more difficult for you. Speaking of difficult, is all this beading going to be too much for you with the carpal tunnel?

For the prayer/blessing thing you wanted us to write - Do we send 30 of those or just one? I mean 1 blessing copied on different sheets?

~tsume mailing tomorrow!

I'm sorry I'm so late, but I just got mine in the mail to you today. I hope that's ok. We actually went out last night (dh and I) w/o our 2 yr. old and 'concentrated' on this new baby.

I am going to have to withdraw from this I didn't know life was about to get hairy but it has and I haven't had time to get out to buy beads. My grammy is showing her true spirit and hanging on longer then anyone could have imagined. I'm sorry to let you gals down

Hi mamas!

I have received most of the beads but Im still waiting on a few of them. What a yummy collection of beads! Im soo excited and cant wait to see them all together. A reminder though, a few mamas sent beads but no return address info/username/blessing etc. I havent gotten to the sorting part yet so I will post a reminder again later....but if you know who you are, please let me know. Hopefully I can get started by the end of the week and have them out sooner then later. Kids and hands willing that is

I will update more when I get the chance. Thanks again for joining all! Oh...and if you still wanted to join but didnt get the chance, as long as Im still waiting on the mail and you can get them out by the end of the week I dont mind, just let me know

The beads are in the mail today. I'll paypal the $5 to you. I'm sending sending two types of beads (30 of each). I"m not sure of the size of one since it is oblong. If you can use both please do. If not, please mail the others back to me. Thanks.

Kathryn - another of the procrastinators here, who finally sent her beads in!!!

I mailed them 2 days ago - so you should get them today I bet, or tomorrow at the latest I think. I also sent oblong ones - glad to see someone else did too, I wasn't sure if that was OK or if they had to be round. I hope mine are the right size & I hope the hole is big enough....

They are very special to me - I was planning to go buy some, but then I remembered, I had bought a bunch of beads on one of my last trips to West Africa (I worked in international development in Ghana and Nigeria in my previous life before mommyhood ) - I was saving them to do something unique with and I couldn't remember where I put them!! Part of the reason it took me so long to send them to you! But I found them, they're soooo pretty (clear glass with shades of purple/pink/green handpainted on them in kind of an abstract way, each one has a unique pattern!) I sent more than 30 just in case - I loved this bead so much I bought like 100 of them so I sent probably had 40-45 or so.

Glad I finally got to use them for something special, and sorry again that they're so late!! Thanks for doing this for us!!

Any word on when the beads will go out? I'm not being impatient, just wondering. Although, I am excited about stringing my lovely beads from MDC mamas onto my Blessingway necklace!

I was just coming here to ask the same thing. Mostly 'cause I'm stringing my own, too, and want to make sure I have enough time to do it. No pressure though!

Hello all,
Im sorry its taken me so long to get back to you all. Its been a crazy week with my daughters b-day and us all now being under the weather. Im 99% sure that I have all the beads (I still have to go through all the names) But I do know there are some people who didnt send all their information. I know of atleast two people who only sent beads. I need username, blessing (if you care to send one) and return address as I would hate to send it to the wrong place! I also think one or two people werre going to send paypal after the beads were sent and may not have. please send that to seekermage@hotmail.com
Im going to try and get everything together this weekend and will hopefully have things sent out this week. Sooo if you dont have your info sent in please do so! I will make an updated list of everything I do have and know for sure when I get it finished up. Hoepfully no one else gets sicker around here so I can get it all done. Thanks all for your patience....I didnt realize what a big chore this would be....atleast its fun! Thanks again

Would it be easier on you if you just sent them loose instead of stringing them?

Count me in, too - I've never strung jewelry in my life, but with all the stress you've been having lately, hardly seems fair to make you do it all...just let us know!!!

If nothing else, I'd have a pile of really pretty beads in a jar and all your good thoughts to inspire me!!
