ooops, I was going to come back from dinner and let Pamela know that a box is missing but I see I'm too late. I didn't want to ruin the surprise of a delivery so I was holding off until last minute.

Hopefully the 3rd box will show up soon!

Kimmo texted me a bit ago to say she was on her way to PO to see if they could tell her why her priority box that was to be delivered on the 5th still shows sitting in her state. Will be interesting to see if they can tell her anything.

I know they don't always scan all the packages, like Ali's friend explained...but still when a priority pkg. is 2 days late, with no movement showing, you have to think there is more to it then just the excuse that it wasn't scanned yet.

Anyway....Jen is the winner of this round for fast moving mail! lol She mailed Wed. from east coast and it hits the west coast today! I'm thinking that DH of hers must have slipped a hundred dollar bill to that PO worker on Wed.! lol

Actually, CoyoteKim's box to Jessica moved pretty fast too, but heck..that was only from CA to Utah - not coast to coast!

I look forward to seeing some pics later!

thank you for acknowledging your boxes, Pamela and Kelley.

Still waiting for AmyS and LindaKinkead to acknowledge receipt from yesterday. I always worry about stolen boxes this time of year so hope they pop on soon!

OMG OMG OMG OMG - NO DIBBS. I was truly spoiled by Jen. Love Love Love NO Dibbs Everything was beautiful, well made, thoughtful (you can tell that everything down to the paper and embellies were picked special for me), and just totally awesome.

I have a conference call tonight, but I will get pics posted tomorrow.

Wow Kelley that box got there fast. I checked the status today and it didn't show movement so I thought it might be delayed like some of the other boxes.

I am happy to hear every thing arrived safely. I tried to create items I thought you would like keeping your Q & A's and MQ in mind to make sure you would enjoy the items.

Pamela, your 3rd box will be delivered today.

Candy, your box passed thru Rochester at midnight so I imagine it will be at PO for you to pick up today. I'll confirm that if I see DC update later this morning.

JulieClawser and TiffanyHerrington - you should have had your boxes 2 days ago although it still has not updated to say that box has arrived at PO or anything to that nature. Do you want the DC so that you can go to your PO and inquire about it?

Julie - you are new to swapping with us and Tiffany has a PO box...so not sure if there is something going on with you two that I'm not aware of or what... I mean, Julie - do boxes normally get delivered to your front porch or are you in a complex of some sort where there is a notice lost?

and Tiffany - do you have a notice in your po box waiting on you? You also need to check in with me please about the mailing of your box to your SS. (Tiffany might be busy with finals this week or prep for finals?)

I'm home today changing my house into a Christmas Wonderland! So I will continue to monitor DC#s to see if anything updates.

Thanks for the update Gwynne.

No box for me yet. I don't have any special circumstances with packages being delivered to my house - I've been getting lots of packages delivered to my house every day, just not this one yet :) My mail lady is awesome - I know if it was on her truck, it would end up on my front porch.

Feel free to send me the DC# - I probably won't have time to run to the PO today, but I can on Monday if it hasn't arrived by then.

Now I'm really excited that my box will be coming soon!!!

Have a lovely weekend ladies!

I probably should have also said that there are no other boxes expected to be ready for delivery today. Just hoping Tiffany, Julie and Candy's all update.

atleast four boxes are slated for Monday though!

thanks Julie for the reply. We'll wait and see what happens by Monday.

I just don't understand why the PO can't read our minds and already know and understand that we NEED these boxes yesterday! lol Don't they have any magic noses that can wiggle those boxes right to our front porches quickly??

Well Linda! I was wondering where you disappeared to! So sorry to hear you have had to visit the hospital! As excited as you get with these swap boxes, I surely knew something had you away from your box!

Rest up and look forward to hearing about your swap items!

Well the mail lady came and went, and so did the UPS guy... Still no swap package for me. I feel bad for whoever sent it to me... I know how nerve wracking it is waiting for the recipient to get these boxes in their hands! I'll cross my fingers that it shows up on Monday!

Linda, I hope you are feeling better. Take care of yourself. You made my week w/ all my wonderful goodies. All the ornaments are on the tree and displayed. Thank you so much for the wonderful box. You were an awesome SS. All the extras were wonderful. Our anniversary is in Feb so the glasses will be nice to use.

Beth, I am so glad you enjoyed your box. I really enjoyed working on this swap for you. I had a hard time parting w/ your purse. I definitely stepped out of the box to create for you w/out using such vintage/distressed style like I usually do. I am making 7 of the purses w/ zebra print for gifts for my DD, niece, and SIL's 5 nieces. I loved working on the baby's items. The candle holder and candle came from a wonderful local gift shop. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

Gwen, thank you for a wonderful swap!!!

Hugs, LanaBigGrin BigGrin BigGrin

Beth (noahsarkgirl) - looks like your fav. color combo is red and black! I'd say Lana did a great job personalizing everything to what works for you! You will smile every time you look up and see the items hanging in your craft room or out on your mantle.

The last name monogram with music sheet background was a great idea too!

Good job Lana!

Jen, a wonderful job, as always.

Kelley - a couple pictures aren't showing up. One must be of a banner?

Love the tissue box! Bet that made Kelley smile! Her colors and owls too! That's a great image of the owls too.

Is that purse made out of paper? That's a nice template, if so. And again, Kelley's taste in colors and paper, totally!

The music sheet wreath turned out super too! You did a nice job on that!

Jen, you couldn't have done a nicer job for Kelley!

Enjoy your goodies and put those pearls and ribbons to good use too!

Not that I really expected any update on DC#s on a Sunday morning...but I did check them all and no changes from yesterday afternoon.

I can not wait for tomorrow morning to see what all updates!

Got the decorating done yesterday. Now to do the christmas tree.

THen I need to get my craftroom in order....I tossed a bunch of stuff in there yesterday and what a mess I now have.... I wanted to make a couple things for the grandkids but I may just have to hold off on that idea. Not sure there will be room to move around in there for the rest of the month.

I think I need a bigger house....lol (but must come with a free cleaning lady! lol)

Oh, and a couple of you have asked me if I'm doing another round anytime soon. It will not be until probably mid January or more like the end of January. It will probably be spring themed and/or connected with what all happens in April, May, and June. and all packages would have to be delivered to your SS BEFORE end of April. I really haven't put much thought into directives yet....so all this could change. But that's my initial thoughts right now going thru my head. I guess it kinda also depends on what other swaps open in January.

So that gives everyone 6-8 weeks to get caught up, get rested after the holidays, get healthy, etc. lol

That penguin banner is adorable! It's so nice that you have the time and/or find the time to help her craft!

I just can't seem to find the time and that's one of my 2013 resolutions - to find time to craft with my DGD.

Making a banner is a great idea for kids to do!


SO I checked DC#s a bit ago and 2 out of 10 actually updated today. So I know those two will be delivered tomorrow. Unfortunately, the 2 that updated are not the 2 I've been waiting on for what seems FOREVER! If they don't update tomorrow morning, early, I think I'll be screaming or pulling my hair out! lol

Oh, and scrappinchic let me know that Tiffany has been unable to get on the MB, but her pkg. is in the mail. So I've texted her, but no reply. So guess I'll go email her too. Hopefully, I'll hear back from her one way or the other. She contacted scrappinchic thru FB.

I didn't end up decorating the xmas tree today, but instead decided to go do my xmas shopping. I'd say I'm a good 90% done so that is a load off my shoulders. Now I can concentrate on baking and stuff next weekend instead of having to go out shopping. I may survive the holiday preparations yet!

A warning to you that have not charged your camera batteries.....GO DO IT NOW!! I/we will be ready to drool and see pics tomorrow. It seems like it's taking forever to see pics posted in this swap!

Thanks!

Rebecca I am sorry I didn't get the last box yet. That is why I haven't posted pictures. I waited as late as I could for the mailman on Saturday but had to leave or I was going to be late. Of course he came after I was gone and left a notice. So I will pick it up tomorrow after I take Isadora to school and am done at the gym. I will post pictures as soon as I get home!

So patiently waiting to see my box get delivered. You know I get nervous every time I mail but it usually starts with hoping my partner likes what I sent. This time when I mailed, I had a couple fragile items which were wrapped well and one item in the box my jingle when moved and so with all this waiting there are more nerves... please don't break, please don't break, please don't break and please deliver please deliver along with the usual I hope she likes it, I hope she likes it.
