Although, bijaydi, you are not alone: my little houses have been in transit for a week, and still have not showed up...I'm bummed. Carol, I'm totally ok if you don't want to wait for mine; maybe they could be entered into your next house swap...which I hope will be soon??!

Bijaydi
04-01-2008, 10:16 PM
frogwings - thank you so much for offering to share! That means a lot to me. But it wasn't my returns that were lost, it was my contributions! I'm mostly sad that I didn't get to share my art with any of you lovely people.

All I can figure is that some greedy sheister thought they'd see what goodies were in my nice thick envelope, and they helped themselves. The envelope was obviously intentionally ripped open all the way across, in addition to the stamp corner being ripped off.

Has this ever happened to anyone here before?

I'm going to buy insurance for swap packages from now on.

BOO. :(

Jean
04-01-2008, 11:29 PM
Bijaydi, did you leave your mail for pickup by your mail carrier?

I used to do that, till all my mail was stolen for the stamps. I had no clue till the gardener for an empty lot down the road came by with my mail, all the envelopes torn as yours was, the contents rifled. It caused endless trouble for me as many of the envelopes had contained bill payments, argh.

Your envelope looked like mine, but my envies were never put into a postbox or made it to the post office at all. It sure wasn't a post office machine that did that!

princess06
04-01-2008, 11:46 PM
Oh my gosh....Bijaydi, I'm sorry this happened to you.

I can remember a very long time ago, I had sent a card out in the mail, only to find out that it had been returned to me, indicating that it was the wrong address, but it had been torn/opened....I was frustrated.

Just wanted to let you know that you're not alone....and I'm thinkin' about ya.

Bijaydi
04-02-2008, 01:52 AM
Thanks for empathizing with me - kind of feels like a sock in the gut, doesn't it? :eek: At least I learned my lesson early.

From now on I'll be hand delivering my swap cards to your doorsteps. :P

Jean - I took it to the post office to be mailed. I'm going to call the Santa Ana P.O. tomorrow to see if they have any possible explanation for me. It's interesting that it was obviously in tact before it left my local P.O. (they wouldn't have sent it in that condition, right?), but by the time it arrived at the other one (via a mail carrier) it was empty.

Tanya
04-02-2008, 06:05 AM
That is terrible - like being ransacked. I'd be so cross Bijaydi!

Luckily I've received some wonderful houses this morning, big thanx go out to Carol firstly for hosting yet another fun swap.

Trini 70 - love the starry sky and cute moon on this!
Stellacometa - now I have an Italian Casa all of my own - thank you!
Dooda - A very cleverly constructed pagoda - really nice!
Jean - I adore my happy homemaker, I wonder will she wash my dishes too!

Bijaydi
04-02-2008, 11:56 AM
Potentially good news: I called the P.O. this morning and they said the machine had opened the envelope - they asked me for a description of the contents so that they can see if anything was salvaged! It's a relief that somebody didn't steal or intentionally deface them, and I still could get them back!

:spinny: My faith in humanity has been restored. lol

julietbowers
04-02-2008, 02:38 PM
File under the category of "next time I'll know better":

I almost always take anything precious or bulky to the post office and ask them to hand stamp it. That way it doesn't have to run through the postmarking machine. I'm sure there are other ways I haven't thought of to mangle and envelope en route but this is the one I feel like I have some control over. . . .

Hoping you get your art back,
julie

Gezza
04-02-2008, 03:22 PM
Oh Bijaydi I'm sorry about your lost art, you have missed out and so have we!!!! I hope it turns up.

Well on a happier note I got great cards today, I am a happy bunny:)So thank you Carol for hosting and to my own wee Tanya, Kahed,cars4cows,purplecat,Jean and Nomnom. I am delighted with them all!!!!

coffeelatte
04-03-2008, 09:23 AM
Bijaydi - I'm glad to hear that's the reason...it kind of looked like the machine tears I've seen. Sometimes that happens not just because of how we pack our stuff, but if an envelope before us bursts as it goes through the equipment then those contents could conceivably jam up against our envies...It's bad luck or fate. But I have started to re-inforce more of my envelopes around the edges with extra tape. And I just stopped dropping mail at one location here in town -- I think it was their internal mail sorting practices, but I lost several envelopes when I sent there. Or the mail took FOREVER to get to where it was sent.

Anyway, I hope they find your cards!
