Hi mamas,<br><br>
It seems as though some, though definitely not all of the swaps have been received by their anxious recipients. I will be trying to send out individual reminders over the next 24 hours, but in the mean time please could anyone still waiting (and anyone who has been unable to send something)please contact me via PM here; I would really like this swap to be a complete success, so nobody's left disappointed <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/loveeyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Loveeyes">:<br><br>
TIA!

I sent a package out on June 30th, so it definitely should have been received by now, but I haven't heard anything from the mama I sent it to. . .<br><br>
So, if the mama from Redding, CA hasn't gotten her package yet, PLEASE let me know. I haven't been able to figure out the username yet, or I would have sent a PM.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

To my swap mama (the one I am sending to) I am so sorry! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">: It is in the mail now though. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Let me know when you get it... I don't know what your username is though. But you will know it's me... the delinquent Emily from New Mexico.

It's the end of july & i've never gotten any pkg. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/disappointed.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="disappointed"> Weren't we (all the moms who agreed to the swap) supposed to send by July 1st..at the latest?<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nono.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nono"><br>
I feel like a big chump for sending out a pkg. I'd really like the email address and/or the MDC name of my swap buddy. Babybumblebee I think it's only fair that you list all of those involved. This is just the pits. It's not right that people havent sent out their pkgs (it was only $10<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: ) And everybody in the swap is pregnant (and possible has other kids to take care or), so excuses just don't cut. I've felt crappy, overwhelmed,and had my ups and downs during this pregnancy & managed to go to the po.<br><br>
This really rots.

I'm really sorry that you feel this way Mihelinka <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Trust me, I'm as disappointed as you are - it seems that almost everyone else was happy with the experience, but I can understand where you're coming from.<br><br>
PM'ing you.

I think I joined the November Club a little later than several so I haven't a clue what the swap was about. Is this something that will be done again?<br><br>
And Mihelinka, I'm sorry you got the raw end of the deal <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> That is poopy.

We should do a third trimester swap, sooner rather than later (maybe Sept?) - things tend to get hectic as the birthing time approaches!

I'm hoping your buddy sent it and it may have been lost in the mail...has happened in the past! I know, we are all busy and HOT with our pregnancies, but try and be patient. I don't think anyone would've purposely left you out or anything...hopefully it will all get straightened out.<br>
I had a great swap experience...I had fun trying to figure out something around $10 that would be 1. unique, 2. useable, 3. fun Wasn't easy...especially since we don't know eachother that well. I had Paxye and I think she liked her things I sent...and even if it wasn't something she would've bought herself, I hope she knows that it was a gift sent from my heart--from one SISTER to another!<br>
I also know Miamimami put some thought, effort, and love into her gift choice for me...and I'm so thankful!<br>
I just can't believe anyone would just 'not' send something--I'm thinking it got lost in the mail etc.<br>
I do hope it works out! And I would LOVE to do this again in Sept... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Thanks to BabyBumblebee for putting this together!<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Waiting a month is pretty patient. It's also really easy to say "try and be Patient" when you've had a good swap experience kwim?

I waited a good couple of weeks past when the send deadline was. I was getting worried myself until the package came with a return address in Canada. Another thing I hope you will take into consideration is that your swap partner may be in another country. Even just US to Canada can cause all hosts of problems with the border... I know this from sending baby gifts to friends in Canada. I made a baby blanket for a friend and sent it the week before her baby was due. It arrived when her son was 6 or 7 weeks old.<br><br>
I'm not saying that's the case, but really, I don't think anyone is trying to rip you off for $10.

I would love to do another swap, if everyone's willing.<br><br>
Maybe we could consider this thread closed...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/duck.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Duck">:
