Hopefully she will send out the tickets as promised this week.


JCI-Have a good day!

I believe she checked into her swap yesterday and apologized for the hold up. Hopefully all is well

we are getting down to the wire here and I need you all to check in and update me on your progress. Mailing DD is only 11 days away. That gives you still enough time to make one thing each day and still have 1 day left to pack and mail!

The following need to check in by Monday please:

Thanks for checking in you two.

NGGG is only one who has not posted on the MB recently. I'm beginning to wonder if maybe she's having issues logging in this past week as I read where a few were having issues again. And in the anything swap box hosted by sherriestevens, I see that she rcvd the box, but never posted that she received it or that she sent it back out to next person on the list. But yet the box arrived in a timely manner to COB. So obviously she is okay, just not communicating on the MB, for whatever reason.

Unfortunately, she did not give me an alternative email addy or phone number, so I have no other way of contacting her. (now do you see why we ask for alternative contact info)

So we will have to sit tight and hope we hear from her soon. Though on second thought, you would think that if she couldn't get on the MB, that she would have put a note inside the box to COB stating such. So let's just hope she thinks to check in today. (and once again, take this as a learning lesson that these little hiccups are what make a hostess's job all the harder and stressful. 2 minutes of your time to check in regularly make for a much smoother swap and saves the hostess hours of concern)

Also, now is a good time to make sure you have the mailing address for your partner's box! Print it out or write it down just in case your computer breaks down this next week! lol

As a hostess in these types of partner swaps, I normally wouldn't be so vocal publicly keeping track of your progress with the DD only a week away. But as you are all first timers, I'm just trying to keep you all informed of each other so you will have a better understanding of how this all plays out in the end for the entire group and the hostess.

Okay, here is what I have on status report from each of you:


PennyDigioia has completed everything and will be ready to mail by the DD


OHscrappylady01855145 Has not given a status report. I have advised the SS mailing to her to hold off until we get a working DC from ohscrappy showing she's mailed out to her own partner. Fair is fair.


STW has completed and is ready to mail out

Lauraa has completed and is ready to mail out

NotGoingGreyGracefully Gave an update 10 days ago, that she is just over half done, and going to a scrapping event in hopes of finishing up and inspiration. I have suggested to the SS mailing to her to hold off in hopes that NGGG will check in this week just to be sure she's home and ready to receive mail. I'm truly not worried about her not mailing out on time, but would like to hear from her first this week before the DD

kazalah has completed and is ready to mail out

Here is your chance to grab another surprise from me!

(btw, I will not be sending these out until after the DD and I've had a chance to organize the prizes)

First to post a sneak peek of what they made in Group 3!

3. Please be aware that it is important to check in at least every 10 days but especially more often in the beginning of the swap (may need to answer questions) and toward the end of the swap so that we are assured you are still around and involved and completing the swap.

Please be aware that if you go MIA for days and days, especially if you are not that familiar to me or you are new to swapping here on this MB, then we go into panic mode and think you’ve walked away and have dropped us with no explanation. And no one wants to discover the week after the DD that a swap box is not arriving to them after all. It is such a downer! It’s just so unfair and such a cruel trick to play on any fellow crafter/swapper.

So, if life events happen that keep you away from the MB for days, please find time to PM me and keep me updated. It saves on a lot of stress for all hostesses and those participating in the swap.

But also remember, we all have events in our lives that take us away from crafting and mess with our schedules – so accept that fact and deal with it and acknowledge that you will make an honest effort to follow the rules of this swap accordingly.

In the post above, I cut and paste from the Rules on the first page.

The Due Date for this swap is 2 days away and we have 2 ladies ignoring us. If you are lurking....just know that no packages are being mailed to you unless you PM me with a working DC# by Tuesday evening, my bedtime.

If no communication, then fine....you will be removed and we will move on, do some rearranging of partners and finish up.

Just know that a little courtesy goes a long ways in these swaps. A simple check in to update us this past week or a simple PM to let me know you've decided to drop out would have been nice and would have lessened the chaos going on right now.

This swap will go down as the perfect example of why we have the rules we have about weekly check ins, and experience required to join these more involved partner swaps, and why we ask for an alternative way to contact you, cell phone for texting, email addy, phone number, etc.

To you other 4 that have communicated and followed the rules, I thank you for your courtesy and show of respect - it will be rewarded in future swaps, I promise!

We will see what happens this next couple of days and move on from there come Wednesday.

And gosh, I think we might have one box delivered by then too! So that will life spirits and get the excitement going again!

Plus boxes will be arriving in the other partner swap I'm hosting, so you all will enjoy checking out that thread and seeing all the ideas the ladies have come up with. It's always fun!

Hi, all. Gwen, just wanted u to know I pm'd you my tracking number. I had hoped to get it mailed out last week, but after it was packaged up, realized I had an OLD box - not the newer flat rate box - so I had to run by and get a new box and repackage everything up - so now it's all sealed, labeled and will be picked up tomorrow morning!

Thanks again for hostessing the swap!

S.

Well, not looking too good that we shall receive DC#s from either NGGG or Ohscrappylady.

So that is being dealt with.

The good news is that 2 boxes are in the mail and will be received probably one on Thursday and one on Friday!

So stay tuned for those reveals!

Change of plans afterall!

I just found NGGG's cell number and as soon as I texted her she responded, happy to hear from me! She's been very sick since returning from her crop. She feels just awful about all this and has asked for a few days to finish up and mail on Monday.

She will definitely mail what she already had completed and is going to try to finish up the rest this next few days.

So I am going to trust her quickness to respond to my text and be patient a few more days.

I'm hoping for a happy ending here! lol

ohscrappylady is officially removed from this swap and the person that was suppose to mail to her is now mailing to ohscrappylady's SS instead and there shouldn't be too much of a delay as she and I were pretty proactive on this situation starting last week.

I don't think we'll see any boxes delivered for a couple days yet. I'll keep an eye on their progress thru the DC#s and keep you posted on when to get excited for someone's delivery!

And I'll keep you posted on NGGG too. She's to check in with me via text this week or here on this thread.

This swap will definitely go down as a learning experience for all but I think we'll have happy solutions for all in the next couple of weeks as it winds down.

Just checked the 2 DC#s but neither is showing out for delivery as of yet.

So hopefully tomorrow we will have both delivered!

How exciting!

She went back to work unexpectedly during this swap but still managed to make some truly beautiful things for me . Thank you Sharon Smile I appreciate everything you put into that box!



Now without further ado... a few pics! ( I'll post more later)
