Bluellen
02-20-2008, 01:02 PM
Is it possible to extend the due date by a week? I will try my gosh darned hardest to get them in by 2/29..I think I'm missing profile info for some people...I printed several out before the crash, so that's good.

I know, I know, I committed to two groups...! Didn't know my creativity would be hosed by the crash.

PamPie
02-20-2008, 01:18 PM
:radar: Bluellen, I'm happy to see your profile here, cuz I still need it for this swap - yikes!

dina54
02-20-2008, 02:10 PM
I would not mind extending the due date to March 10th if no one objects. Please try and get your cards in ASAP though, as quite a few people made a serious effort to get cards in early for this one.
AND EVERYONE: FILL OUT YOUR PROFILE ASAP!

My cards are on the way. My profile has been filled out, in case anyone needs it. I tried to upload pics but it didn't take. Oh well. I shared three over at the other place. I guess musicgal will just have to be surprised.

JoyFlower
02-21-2008, 08:52 PM
Oh, no! I am the only one in my group whose cards aren't in! I better get that taken care of right smart now!!!

My cards are finally done! I'm so glad the date got extended I'll send them tomorrow but mail can be very unpredictable here at times.
Here are my cards if you want to take a peek:
Swirly Lizard for Bratgirl (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=880)
Inner Diva for Poshcot (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/index.php?n=876)

I'm dropping my cards at the post office this morning for Group 2.
They're in my gallery if my group wants to peek. Thanks for hosting, Dina! It was lots of fun.

crazy4homer
02-25-2008, 10:46 PM
I am here Dina!! I think I only have 2 more to make so I should be in good shape. Thanks for the reminder :)

boatbird
02-26-2008, 04:32 AM
WIll have to rush to get these done..... after losing my job at the beginning of Jan and rushing to get a new one, I am waiting for my first pay cheque to come through and slowly getting back in the swing. Hopefully they will be done and posted by the end of the week...... fingers crossed!

dina54
02-27-2008, 03:27 PM
BigKay your cards have arrived :D

crazy4homer

boatbird

Just checking in to let you know I've made the move. Looking forward to getting mycards from this swap!

dina54

crazy4homer, your cool cards have arrived!

Bluellen
03-06-2008, 10:10 PM
Hey everyone, my cards for you all are up in my gallery if you want a sneak peek...except for topacelot becasue hers is all wire and it didn't scan well and maxie23's cause it's not done yet...(embarrassed). I will be sending them priority tomorrow, so they should be there Monday. Thanks, D, for the extra week. I surely needed it!

JoyFlower
03-07-2008, 10:43 AM
Cards are in the mail - pics in my gallery - thanks for the extra time! :) I hope everyone enjoys their cards.

dina54
03-08-2008, 03:39 PM
PamPie and musicgal's cards arrived today. We are almost there!

PamPie
03-08-2008, 04:48 PM
PamPie and musicgal's cards arrived today. We are almost there! There is another envie coming, because as you see in the first, something was omitted - I would think it will be there by Monday ...:jiggy:

Bluellen
03-09-2008, 12:56 PM
Yes, I have to send another envie too. Most of my cards have embellishments, so I want to send extra postage to you Dina. Look for that. It's in the mail today.

dina54
03-09-2008, 02:28 PM
Thanks guys! Sorry I haven't been around much, but I have been sick as You-Know-What since last Wed. with some kind of flu bug, YUK!
Feeling a bit better today though.

crazy4homer
03-09-2008, 03:17 PM
Oh boy.. I forgot these were already mailed and I panicked.. I couldn't find them in my binder! Whew!

dina54
03-09-2008, 05:15 PM
Silly Jami! yes your cards are here.
It looks like everyone has checked in and sent their cards. I'm guessing as soon as jklee's arrive from Guatemala I will swap them out.

boatbird
03-10-2008, 02:51 PM
Have mine arrived then????? :unsure:

dina54
03-10-2008, 04:12 PM
I have bad news.....it seems my cards got missed on the postal trip because I found the envie here.....I am hoping I can just send them to each person so this doesn't hold up the swap. Just let me know what I can do. I understand I may get neg i-traders....but I can handle that.
I only have bluellens addy.....would need maxie23, belaymonkey and paperfairys...so sorry for the bad news.....

Schonafrye, MAIL THEM TO ME NOW! If you get them out today they should be here by wed or thurs. I don't expect jklee's to arrive before then and I wasn't planning on swapping out until the w/e.

Bluellen, and boatbird, your cards are here! They are terrific!
(Rachel is gonna LOVE the wire card, Ellen)
Pampie, I got your extra envie, OMG! Thanks SO MUCH :D

musicgal
03-11-2008, 11:29 AM
Dina,
Did mine get there?
I know that the weather has been awful around here.

dina54
03-11-2008, 12:32 PM
Dina,
Did mine get there?
I know that the weather has been awful around here.

Yes they are here (I switched you to red on the list a while ago.)
I'll go check and make sure I gave you an iTrader rating. Like I said, I have been sick for a week or so and may have missed you. Anyone else I didn't give a rating to? Let me know.

PamPie
03-11-2008, 01:20 PM
. Anyone else I didn't give a rating to? Let me know. Me, but I was thinking you might be doing them as you get everything organized to send back out... :geek:

lyndashobby
03-11-2008, 02:07 PM
I haven't got an iTrader rating from you...

dina54
03-11-2008, 02:54 PM
PamPie & Lyndashobby, I have left iTraders for you. I think I may have missed anyone who's cards arrived while the OS was down and before THIS site was up! Anyone else? Let me know!
Joyflower's cards are here so that means only Schonafrye and jklee are left. (See Schonafreye's posts above for THAT story:D), and jklee warned me that mail from Guatemala is a bit iffy. I am starting to sort out these cards today. I hope to have the missing cards by weekend and mail them off then! It's been fun.
I'm glad we managed to pull this off despite all the upheaval! YAY us!

JoyFlower
03-11-2008, 03:43 PM
Thanks for your work on this, Dina! And I am glad to know my cards arrived.

JAD
03-11-2008, 10:11 PM
Dina, I'm not sure if you gave me a rating or not...Do you remember? :)
Jeannie

JAD
03-11-2008, 10:13 PM
Thanks for your work on this, Dina! And I am glad to know my cards arrived.

Oh Joyflower, I peeked and saw my card..I just love it :) I love the healing hearts Ohhhhh so perfect for me...It might make a trip top work with me and find a home there...
Jeannie

jklee
03-12-2008, 08:34 PM
I hope my cards make it there by the weekend... they usually get there within a week, I sent a trade on the same day and it hasn't arrived yet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

dina54
03-13-2008, 03:22 PM
Schonafrye's cards are here (thanks for extra postage!)
I am hoping jklee's will be here by this w/e. If the cards aren't here by Monday's mail (one week after due date) I will send out what I have and mail jklee's cards to each recipient separately later, OK?
I worked last night, have school tonight, have LOTS of homework to catch up on, and have to work 12 hour night shifts Friday & Saturday, SO, Monday sounds good to me:D

dina54
03-13-2008, 05:23 PM
Believe it or not, I actually sat down and swapped out most of these cards this afternoon.
Note to Topacelot: I am sending Bluellen's card for you in it's own envie' cause it's made of wire and won't fit in your SASE (thickness-wise) You are gonna LOVE IT btw.
I'll try to get to the post office in the AM and mail off as much as I can, whew!

jklee
03-13-2008, 09:25 PM
I'm sorry my cards are taking so long to get there...:embarrassed: mail is usually slowwww coming here, not going... Thanks Dina for all your help.

Bluellen
03-15-2008, 12:48 PM
Dina, your extra postage is in the mail to you to cover for Topacelot's mailing. :) THX.

dina54
03-15-2008, 03:39 PM
Bluellen, thanks so much!
jklee's cards just arrived!!!!!!!
I mailed all the USA participants returns yesterday(except those in jklee's 2 groups)
It's too late for me to make it to the post office today, but first thing Monday morning I will mail out all the rest! Not bad everyone; we made it for one week after the due date!
I really had fun with this one. Hope everyone likes their cards. Don't forget to post iTrader rating for everyone you get a card from (since this is a PAT) and, if so inclined, for your gracious host;)

jklee

dina54
03-17-2008, 08:19 PM
I left all the remaining envies for the mailman to pick-up, but when I got home this evening they were still sitting there and I have no mail....Hmmmm
Maybe my mailman is Irish and he took the day off? I'll have to go to the post office in the morning I guess.
I'm glad the first batch that I mailed is arriving!

JoyFlower
03-17-2008, 09:57 PM
I am delighted with my cards that came today! :jiggy: Thank you to terryart, pschafe1, JAD and Staci. Each card is special!

03-26-2008, 02:38 PM
Well, I knew I wasn't going to get out of this without screwing up somewhere.
I just got a PM from isisjean. Apparently I sent her a card meant for Fantasty Firebird. That means someone has a card meant for HER. Anyone have the wrong card? Please double check and let me know so I can straighten this out, thanks.
