Thanks Tinka! I'll let you know when they arrive.

I will be out of town from Feb 27 to March 3. My mail will be held at the post office during that time, so it will be safe and dry. :) I will have e-mail access while I am gone, but if you think you will need my address during that time, it might be best to PM me now.

You are totally right! My bad, I apologize! That's really amusing.
I guess I was just thinking of prior swaps where both was the rule.

Hey OY! Open mouth, insert foot! :eek:

Sorry 'bout that. I'm a nerd. (runs off to the corner with dunce hat on head).

Elena
03-03-2008, 03:35 PM
It is confusing because of the title of the swap. I had to read it a couple of times first to make sure I got it :)

Katxena
03-04-2008, 12:03 AM
Ooops! Sorry for the confusion. I was trying to make it flexible enough that anyone could participate.

I'm back in town, catching up on everything. I had my mail held while I was gone, and I'll be picking it up tomorrow night. I'll let y'all know if any cards have arrived after I sort through it!!!

Katxena

Just a reminder to all: Don't forget to send me an address label (everyone) and loose stamps totaling 58-cents (US-only). Please don't send an envelope. I prefer to provide all envelopes for returns.

Hi everyone! I know that some cards arrived yesterday for this swap, but I haven't had time to open the envies. It's holy week, and I've been at church almost constantly since Wednesday evening. I'm busy at church again today, so I most likely will not update receipts until tomorrow.

I'm sorry for the delay.

I went to a play last night and got home very late -- I know some cards for this swap were in yesterday's mail, because I saw them in the mail spot on the table before I went straight to bed. They are nice and safe and dry inside, and I'll check them in tonight after work.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Thanks for letting me know! I'll let you know when your cards have arrived safely.

Several envelopes arrived yesterday, but I did not have time to open them. They are safe in my inbox at home, next to my laptop, waiting to be opened tonight. I left home at 7am yesterday and didn't get home until after 11pm -- it was a very long day.

I will be dropping the returns off tomorrow morning -- I would have done it today, but then I remembered it was tax day! (for those of you not in the US: tax day is the deadline by which our federal and most state taxes must be mailed. It's a crazy day at the post office, with long, long lines). I'll confirm here when they are postal!

Katxena
