Maybe they had a machine malfunction or something. Weird though!

yes, and kinda sad too. but they there are addresses on the back of those cards so someone should be getting those back if the PO does their job.

Yesterday the front (& back flap) of my envelope showed up, along with a postcard inside and it was in one of their bags for damaged mail.

Don't think it is just orange envelopes the postal system does not like as I also received an envelope from CastleQueen5 in sort of bad shape. Mine was blue.

It did not have as much damage as the ones who had no contents. Mine has a couple of smaller rips in the bottom and the edge with the stamps was messed up.

There are 2 completed cards needing iTraders and a set to add to and send on.

I'm glad John is safe Nancy. I am going over Betty's tomorrow . I'm going to show her the photos. I dropped off one letter and 2 postcards at Betty's PO today. Kinda had second thoughts but it is closer to my sons school.

I got mine, Heather, a turqouise one - it looked a bit chewed off at one side and was torn half-way down that side, but I believe everything was in there that you put in. :3
Thank you!

I went to Bettys house today. Really nothing is wrong with her envelopes nor their contents. But I really cant imagine that all of my mail got sent through the machine about the same time and got all jammed, so that leads me back to thinking something is wrong with the envelopes. How do so many envelopes get ruined. Betty said she is sending her mother a card in one of those to see what happens. I have used these before, so I think the Mail carrier either thought lets mess with this ladies mail or the machine just got really hungry right when my mail was going through.

I received a jam from Castlequeen last week and it came just fine. I did get an envelope that I mailed two weeks ago to someone else come back to me in one of the postoffice's damaged mail envelopes and the envelope was totally ripped up. All that was left of the front was my return address and with luck the jam was also returned. It was totally flat, no bumps. So I think something is wrong with the machines in general.

A big welcome to Silky1150 and ThouArtDelyrias!

I sent out all new lists (address, pm's and linked).

Chardonnay1965, DeepDarkHana, JAD, kattieaaron and Sarnie didn't get them.

BekaH
04-23-2015, 07:06 PM
I would go ahead and remove JAD. poor thing has not been well since sometime last year, I don't think :(

What's going on with sarnie? Anyone know?

xstitcher
04-24-2015, 01:52 PM
I know that no time limit thing gets me in trouble ALOT. :jiggy::twitcy:

Maybe that is why no one is sending me cards now! :cry:

I have one set CastleQuees5 started and sent me that I have the stuff stitched. This weekend I am going to attach them and send them on to player #3.

I might even find time for some starters for our new players.

Hey Castle ... maybe take Allegrae's stance. Her's never get damaged. She writes

PHOTOS ENCLOSED DO NOT BEND (on bottom left) and on the bottom right
NON-MACHINEABLE

p.s. just got your envelope Allegrae :)

I got the bia lateral mastectomy thursday, I finally went home Saturday about 6 pm, I was back up at the ER TUESDAY with a blood clot in my leg, and nice surprise: just a huge mass of Pulmonary Embolisms in my lungs, I am lucky to be alive, but a lot of people are praying for me. I cant type too well I have a oxygen monitor taped to my right hand. I am sleeping a lot and throwing up a lot. I was doing better at home, but I need a bunch of blood thinning meds. Prayers that the clots dissolve and and dont kill me. I will be on a bunch of meds for 6 months. I am getting good care, and I am surrounded by family and friends who are helping.

BekaH
04-30-2015, 03:13 AM
Oh dearest Heather, how blessed it is that you were led back to that hospital! That was surely frightening for you, bless your heart... I will definitely keep remembering you in my thoughts and prayers... please keep us updated Hon! Love you gal! Let us know if you need anything!

04-30-2015, 03:22 PM
I needed to post this for DeniseMDupree. This was started by her and worked on by Allegrae and I.

I think it turned out really cute :) I wasn't sure what to add to it to start with, as I didn't really have anything native american themed... But when in doubt, always add postage stamps, LOL!

Also, note that a little color was lost in the scan... The glitter tape along the bottom is teal in color, and the girl has a subtle sparkle to her, as do the leaves.

xstitcher
04-30-2015, 08:51 PM
Heather you are in my thoughts and prayers.

I sent a 3rd player set out yesterday.

I have a set I received yesterday from ThouArtDelyrias to work on. Already have some ideas going through my head.

ThouArtDelyrias
05-02-2015, 08:24 PM
I received two sets today! :jiggy: One set from Xsticher - already! and the other from myrubyjean. :) Done with both...fun! fun! fun! Sending each their card back now to Castlequeen and Katelnorth as well! I hope it brings smiles to all four faces :wub: (OK, my posts are starting to resemble Dellas!!:huh:)

xstitcher

Opinions please............

I have several sets of 6 monochromatic cards in the rainbow colors and I thought it would be fun to have a set of round robin cards for it.

I need to figure out how to keep the cards monochromatic and not upset or stifle anyone's creative juices.

First thing… do I

ask 2 players to work on all 6 cards so they also have set as well

or

open it up and try and get as close to 12 players as possible meaning I am the only one with a full set. (I can make more than one set of 6 to get more players involved if they want a full set)

or

not get the group involved here and make some personal trades on plans via pm’s?


I thought if I have a list of multiple players I would send a stamped addressed envelope to player 2 for player 3 so no one but me has to keep track of who wants and gets what.


I really want to know what the rest of you think. Replies here or pm will be appreciated.

I also have some more farfetched ideas to come later so stay tuned. :jiggy::biglaugh:

Silky1150
05-16-2015, 10:04 AM
have done this before but slightly different. How many sets do you have? For example if you have 6, send one color group to 1 of each of the 6 people. Blue to one, red to another. Each person does something to the cards they have then send on to the next in line. There has to be a specific number order for this to work. Re: Jane sends to Mary, Mary sends to Lois, etc. when everyone finishes thier group of cards that they are the last to send to, all the cards get sent to the other players. Usually our group picks a theme, each player starts a background card, sends to the next player, they do something to the card, etc. We have been a group for over 10 years. We have done some really awesome work on RR's. There are 7 of us in the group but we always do 9 cards to fill a sheet. 2 players volunteer to stsrt 2 cards. I would be happy to be included.

kentuckydakota
05-16-2015, 10:23 AM
My brain won't wrap around that one for some reason.

But I'd be happy to work on monochromes Xstitcher. I'm working through a couple PATS right now. When those are finished I'm gonna sit down and do a marathon RR session-lol.

Silky1150
05-16-2015, 10:31 AM
Lindageise, 2nds are on the way to you.

MACE
05-16-2015, 05:40 PM
what is monochrome

katelnorth
05-16-2015, 06:44 PM
MACE, monochrome would be cards all in one colour - e.g. all blue, all red, and so on.

I'm not sure what the best way to approach it is, xstitcher - probably I'd be likely to spread it around a bit, just so as not to put the onus on a small group of people to finish them off, but if people were willing, there's no reason not to do it that way...

Silky1150
05-16-2015, 07:39 PM
mrubyjean and Elena, new sets in the mail to you.

MACE
05-16-2015, 08:18 PM
That sounds cool! :)

Today I finished a card Ceejay Nancy and I worked on, and then I did the second on a starter from Ceejay and sent it to Nancy! So we 3 worked on 2 sets :)

ThouArtDelyrias
05-17-2015, 11:05 AM
Really awesome Prayer at night! Lots of work there!!! LOVE the Enjoy the journey ones! too cool if they were places that the participants lived....

xsticher, I would be thrilled to add something to monochromatic cards and am cool with whatever direction you go with it but a full set would be fun. you would have to guide me through the whole process if it remains complicated sounding... :)

xstitcher
05-17-2015, 12:39 PM
Thanks for all the input on my question!

Still trying to decide what to do. Leaning toward spreading the love with a request to keep it monochromatic please.

I am going to be sending out another update in the next few days so if anyone wants to make any changes please let me know.

MACE
05-17-2015, 12:55 PM
Yeah if you send detailed instructions I'll work on a set. Can you use paint or markers on them? or...

Prayer those sets are awesome! Glad 2 are mine ;)

I did go check it out Della. It looked mighty cool! I'm just not too chatty right now as I have 2 boys graduating- 1 this week, 1 the following. One from college and the other high school. Can you all believe that I still need to get their grad announcements in the mail? Oh gee, can't keep up with life. But as soon as the dust settles I'll be back to working on RR's and joining swaps again. Yay! Time for some ME time!

I just wanted to let everyone know that I still have cards and will work on them soon...If I cannot work on them with in the next month or so...I will send them on to someone else...But would like to keep them and try to get them out...

They are from the following:

Vicky-3
Sarah's Mom -2
Deep Dark Hanna

Allegrae
CastleQueen5

Sarnie

These will be going out towards the end of June-first of July...Just wanted everyone to know where they had some cards! :) <3

MACE
05-18-2015, 06:53 PM
OH big P.S. everyone. Don't send anything to me after the 23rd or there abouts. I'll be going to Ohio for most of the summer. My son is getting married and then I'll be staying w my daughter and then my mom. I gave Xstitcher an address to use while I'm there. Make sure you put the c/o on it or they will forward it back to South Dakota! I'll probably have to hand draw mostly or markers ... I won't have my big bin with me, so keep that in mind if you send me stuff :)

MACE
05-19-2015, 12:09 AM
Okay I guess this is my 4th post in a row . . . someone write something!

I made starters for Allegrae, and sent her cards that Nancy started and I was the 2nd on. They will go postal tomorrow.

CastleQueen5
05-19-2015, 10:16 PM
I worked on some sets of cards that I got from many of you. I am mailing off tomorrow. Right now I am on my computer away from the cards cause my mother called. Talking on the phone is very hard on my breathing. I guess that means I should just talk less. It is just that everyone ones to know how I am doing. So talking to my mom for 22 minutes blew me up. I had to rest.


SO HEY take me off HOMERS. I can do all kinds of art, I just need to not talk on the phone. Going back to take some photos and finalize the envelopes in about 20 minutes.

I'd like to join in. At this stage, I don't want really creepy, gory, or nude themes.

Since this is the first round robin group I've been part of, I'd like to get some thoughts on this situation: I really love using Dylusions ink sprays to start cards, but they can be quite tricky because they will react to any wet medium placed on top of them. Should I avoid using them in a round robin because of that or should I just include a note with the cards, so that the next player/s know how the inks will react?

What do other people use to start their cards?

Silky1150
05-23-2015, 02:33 PM
Thank you, ladies, for acknowledging receipt of the starter sets I mailed out. I have mailed 13 starter sets since the beginning of April and this is the first time anyone let me know they got where they are supposed to go. I have not received any of them back yet. Enjoy the challenge everyone!

Silky1150
05-23-2015, 02:36 PM
Mesektet, I would include a note. People use all types of things to start cards. I will be very happy to work on yours.

re:Dylusions sprays...I agree with Silky...a note would be great with dylusions backgrounds. That way people would have a heads up for additions! Welcome aboard and just jump right in. It is a wonderful group!

I have been doing itrader and putting my cards in my Round Robin 3 ring binder. I have made some progress. I have noticed that I tend to get cards from many of the same players, so the itraders can take some time. Either I only send to a few faves or those 10 players tend to finish them up and send them home to me more often. I am not not sure. I wish I would keep better track but I kinda dont want the extra work. Like the CR random continuous aspect. Nice surprises in the mail all the time.

BTW mailing a few envies on Tuesday.

Hey good to know about that kind of stuff. I had no idea. Welcome new players

I have been doing itrader and putting my cards in my Round Robin 3 ring binder. I have made some progress. I have noticed that I tend to get cards from many of the same players, so the itraders can take some time. Either I only send to a few faves or those 10 players tend to finish them up and send them home to me more often. I am not not sure. I wish I would keep better track but I kinda dont want the extra work. Like the CR random continuous aspect. Nice surprises in the mail all the time.

BTW mailing a few envies on Tuesday.

I used to send cards on to lots and lots of different people, but I don't spread them around quite so much any more - partly this may be because I'm returning things to people, so I tend to send new stuff to them as well - and partly I think it's because I tend to send to the folks who appear to be most active in the thread. I don't really mind if cards go missing and never come back to me or take a long time (stuff happens and these are just little cards, after all) but of course it is more fun to get things back!

Me again. My armpit feels like a rodent is trying to gnaw its way out of my body. Hence the constant up doing stuff on the computer.

But I am please to announce, I am closer and closer to leaving you all your well deserved Itraders.

I have
2 left for Mace
6 left for Hey maggie
2 left for BEka
and one for Kentucky Dakota.

Now what should I do. Oh that is right I have to go get my INR blood test, but things are looking good in the Pulmonary Embolism area. I can breath better. Now if that hamster would stop gnawing on my armpit.

CastleQueen5
05-24-2015, 03:17 PM

Hey since you are my main group of swapping buddies, I will post here. I am feeling pretty good 2 days in a row. I am no longer an SOB patient. Shortness of Breath. Yesterday it feel as if a rodent of some small nature was trying to burrow its way out of my chest via my armpit, but I think it was cause I was lifting all my heave 3 ring binders and putting atc cards into the slotted 9 protectors.

But I just wanted to say, thanks for all the prayers and well wishes. I am really feeling so much better. I can talk on the phone without SOB. My INR, if you know all about that is at the good level, so the blood clots seems to have mainly been corrected in my lungs.

CastleQueen5
05-26-2015, 02:17 AM
Yep that was what they put on my ER paperwork SOB. Nice discharge paperwork. I got my INR number and it is too low. Dang it. I have to give myself a shot in the tummy to see if I can raise the level. I would be fine if they would just find the right place or whatever. Meaning, To maintain a healthy level we need one shot a day and 2 pills, but we keep needing to adjust the levels. I guess I just thought I was out of the woods.

I received a homer from CastleQueen5 and Tandy. iTraders to be left later because I can't give them to both of them now and my brain gets mixed up if I only leave half.

I received a set to work on today from CastleQueen5. It might go out tomorrow as I have some extra things stitched I didn't use yet.

I have 4 sets to send home or to 3rd player.

And I have the 6 I want to keep with the rainbow theme made. Now I need to see who to send them to. I am going to go back and see who offered to work on them. If anyone else wants them let me know in the next couple of days. Here is the 1st post (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showpost.php?p=1698799&postcount=567) about it if anyone wants to look at it. I think I am going to get, hopefully, 12 players to work on them with me. If anyone else wants a full set of 6 send me a pm and we can work out something.

Shades, you are always welcome to do hand drawn/painted stuff. I have RR cards that are all hand drawn/painted and cards that are both hand drawn and collage. Some of my favorite have hand drawn elements, so if that's your favorite thing to do, go for it. I've been known to draw on a separate sheet of paper and cut it out to "collage" my art-lol.

I was going to say the same thing. Anyone can add whatever they want however they want. Collage, hand drawn/painted, embossing, stitching like I do or whatever you can make work. I have to be careful and not ruin cards with heat because I cross stitch, finish the backs with heat n bond and attach them to the cards. Has happened a couple of times. When it does I keep the mistake and send the good ones on.

05-31-2015, 11:07 PM
I write MINE on the back of the card I am keeping so I dont get confused later and think I need to mail it. I also put a check mark near the name of to other players when I have given them itrader points.

I am not much of a hand draw kind of artist, I do find myself in awe of some the art work the Hand drawn players post to this website. I am only a collage and rubber stamp artist mainly. I own drawers of stuff I may never use. The CRRRR is great way to start out with stuff I am not sure what else to do with it. This group comes up with some great ideas.

This month I will begin making and stocking little pillows for our babies and tots for their baptisms and hopefully 30 Dotee doll angels for another of our parish groups.

What do you guys think about the use of stickers on your ATCs? I"ve noticed a lot more people using them & curious as to what everyone thinks about that practice?

kentuckydakota
06-01-2015, 03:41 AM
I don't mind a nice sticker- it's not any different than something printed that's cut out except it's already sticky. My only reservation is I don't like the white edging left on. There are some gorgeous dimensional stickers like Jolee's that can make something really lovely.

mrubyjean
06-01-2015, 09:20 AM
Yes, what kentuckydakota said...stickers are fine by me.
Like any other collage piece, they can be used thoughtfully and attractively.

vick302000
06-01-2015, 09:39 AM
I personally do not mind stickers when used creatively. There are alot of "stickers" out there that have been labeled embellishments and there isn't much difference. I used to collect stickers and I have thousands so you are going to see a sticker or two on mine. If that bothers anyone just pass the rr on. I usually put the sticker on card stock and cut them out. I cut off the white boarder so they do not look so much like a sticker. Even if I don't put them on card stock I still cut around them. I know some people are dead set against stickers of any kind but I do not judge anyone who uses stickers because they may be using what they have. There could be financial, physical or mental issues they deal with and using a sticker now and then can be helpful for them. I must say that of all the rr I received with stickers I don't think anyone is using them to just slap on and not use any thought. So that is my opinion
.

Silky1150
06-01-2015, 10:56 AM
I agree on the sticker issue. There are some lovely ones out there like butterflies and dragonfies and such. Sometimes an attractive, thoughtfully placed sticker can make the card.

BekaH
06-01-2015, 12:04 PM
I love stickers! If they are used right... I agree with what vick says, if you use stickers with white borders, I like to cut around those... but.most craft stores have some excellent inexpensive stickers that are very nice! :-) I've even collected several cards that have other collage elements, but a sticker is the main focus and they are gorgeous. They just have to be used right. To me, they are, also just another collage element :-)

kentuckydakota
06-01-2015, 10:27 PM
I stack them up and do them all at once between swaps, so depending on when they come in it could be a long while or a short while. Some people are way quicker at keeping them moving. Everyone's different.

I declared this me day and worked on ATCs so my rainbow cards and several others are finally went out today.

I needed 12 players and only had 9 volunteers so I "volunteered" 3 of you. If you don't want to work on them send them back to me and I will find someone.

Also sent out some homers and 3rd players.

This means I am all caught up so if someone wants to take a chance on me I am ready!

CastleQueen5
06-04-2015, 03:39 PM
There was the question about when you do your cards. I did have a Tuesday set aside. I would do my cards with my Friend Betty every Tuesday. I would go to her house, and then of course I would forget to mail them. The one time I mailed them right from her house the PO machine ate up all my orange envelopes. Well Betty has RA since she was 4. She had elbow surgery May 20 so we have not been getting together. I try to make every day a ME day but well reality sets in.

The last few days I have been reading books, for swaps on paperbackswap.com, It was all I had the energy to do. TODAY I am in my craft room, I have the Bizarre June swap due out in the mail. I also have a bunch of postcard like swaps due on swap bot. Now I just realized I need to eat something. Crud, it is easy to get distracted by a growling tummy. I May not make it back in here...HELP!@

06-04-2015, 04:05 PM
With what you have going on I think you are doing great!

I try and stitch what I am going to put on them any evening Jerry and I have a chance to just sit and watch TV, as I am waiting to pick my grandson up from school or waiting for anything else when the light is good (I never go anywhere without some kind of stitching project). I iron Jerry's shirts once a week on laundry day and if I have time I iron what I have stitched on the cards. The hardest part for me is deciding who to send them to and finding the time to do it.

Angelmuz just finished up a pile she had and I am set to work on a pile I have as soon as I finish my current PAT obligation, so don't give up hope, those of you who wonder if things you mailed to us will ever get moving again. :)

Also, xstitcher, I have a homer headed to you but I put a starter in the envie and angelmuz saw it and wanted to be 2nd on it, so we'll get that to ya soon. :) Either I'll get her to work on it this week end or I'll send you a different starter while she is dithering.

I'm so excited about the monochromes! Yay! I have some of my supplies divided by color, just waiting for that to come. :)

xstitcher
06-05-2015, 04:16 PM
BekaH I have some starters that have been gone for a long time, too.

As kentuckydakota said, don't give up hope. I had one come back to me after about a year! So there is hope.

If you have any particular ones in mind you might ask if anyone has seen them. Sometimes someone remembers them and says something. Of course if they were person 2 it doesn't mean much except you know someone had it at some time.

My way of thinking now is... I never make and send anything out as a round robin if I don't want to lose it forever. Came up with the after I apparently lost something I really liked. Still don't know what happened and can't ask because I didn't make of note of who I sent it to back then. Now I do if I remember although as I said above that does not make much difference since you don't know what the 2nd person is going to do with it.


A starter from you worked on my angelmuz sounds fun, but no hurry.

Since I have no round robins to work on this weekend I am either going to organize my entire ATC collection because parts of it have become quite muddle together, find some swaps to join and work on the cards or I am going to make things I can use on round robins (I hope) or as starters.

My set has been passed on. I also finished a set and sent it home to you. Sometimes I get quite busy and put things off for awhile. Then I put it on my to do list and finish everything in my atc round robin box. Right now my palette is clean. Not looking just yet...I'm off to Japan soon, so I won't even see my mail until July. Maybe I'll bring home some neat papers for new atc round robins before my next trip to Peru in August. Happy trails!

Just so you know, I am not really behind on swaps. I have one I just got in the mail recently. So I am not hoarding any cards or sets.

Not that this was a cry out for more mail. I am kinda tired anyway all the time. I can read and sit at my computer, but I struggle to get some art done on some days. I have been getting in my pool and just using the skimmer to get some mild exercise. And I hate swimming, and I hate the pool. Not a water person. But I can move so much better in the pool. So I guess that is where I will be daily cause walking/shopping wears me out.

I am slow & I admit it. I am very particular about what I put on the RRR ATCs that I receive. I have hundreds & hundreds of images & rubber stamps that i use & I like to peruse the lists looking for just the right image. Also, when I send them out to the third person I always try to include at least one or two starter sets. If we had to put the dates that we worked on things; I'd probably be bounced out on my head..... And on that note.....

I am sending two sets to CeeJay & Cindy (cinlin)

xstitcher
06-06-2015, 11:15 AM
When I get a set to work on I get an idea of what I want to add then start looking for a pattern.

Sometimes I find what I think is the perfect thing but once I get it stitched it just doesn't work so it goes into my "maybe someday I will use it" bag.

Silky, maybe while you are waiting for RR's to come home you'd like to join a swap or two (she shamelessly plugs her swaps) I have a couple fun ones in my signature ;)
Those are a perfect way to keep mail coming on a regular basis.

CastleQueen5
06-06-2015, 04:35 PM
I often just put the year on most of my cards. Since sometimes the swap is due in June but I made the cards in say May and mailed them off. BUT that is for a swap. I have never thought to put a date on the CRRR, that is a good idea. I think if I have room I will add the date.

katelnorth
06-06-2015, 06:03 PM
Ok, I've got two homers in the mail and on their way (the same two I mentioned above). Wheee!

Out of curiosity... how long do you guys tend to hold on to a set before passing them along? Is there any sort of convention most of the group will try to follow?

For me, it just depends on how busy I am - at the moment I have a couple of sets waiting - one of which just came in the post from Maggie a few days ago. I try not to let anything sit longer than 2-3 weeks, but there are times it takes longer than that. In June my eldest daughter and I are away part of every weekend visiting universities, so I imagine I'll have less time for arting than usual!

My way of thinking now is... I never make and send anything out as a round robin if I don't want to lose it forever. Came up with the after I apparently lost something I really liked. Still don't know what happened and can't ask because I didn't make of note of who I sent it to back then. Now I do if I remember although as I said above that does not make much difference since you don't know what the 2nd person is going to do with it.


Because I am the kind of person I am (organised, tend to overthink!) I do keep track of who I pass stuff on to, and when, so I know how long stuff has been out there, but I also operate under this same rule xstitcher mentions - once I make something and it's gone, I don't worry about it any more. If it comes back, that's great, but I know some won't, and that's ok. We all know life gets in the way of art sometimes and after all, it's just a card... :) That said, if I want to use a item I really adore on a card, I probably won't do it on a round robin, just in case (unless I'm number 3!)

I have these cute colored bins that I put all my incoming need to work on CRRR into. They go in the White one. White stands for a blank canvas. I have pink in and green, In the pink and green ready to go. Black needs some work.

When I get the set I put it away and work on it when I feel it. But I have a lot of time and I work as I get them. Currently I don't have any sets, but I send some out. I don't keep track of my sets I just let them go and don't think about them. :)

Things have been a bit hectic here, but I've been mailing homers, seconds and starters over the last few weeks. Almost caught up with my cards, so feel free to keep 'em coming. Be sure to note my new address! Mailing homers/starters to CQ5 and SweetGypsy today. Sent an envelope to mrubyjean last week.

I, too, have lots of homers that are still "out there," but I don't stress about it. I know the majority will ultimately show up. I try not to keep cards more than a few weeks, but schedules -- especially with a cross-country move -- can get the best of me. I haven't been scanning finished cards of late, but I plan to return to doing so.

An update has been sent. The 1st group has an incorrect date in the title line as I forgot to change it till I hit the sent button. I will correct it next time.

Seascape131 is coming back to play and Nancy is going to homers.

All the usual players did not get it.

Also StoneFX I could not get it to you. I think it said your mail box is full.

Sorry about that - it should be cleared out now. I regularly clean out my inbox, but I didn't realize that sent messages were piling up and clogging the mailbox.

Lots of stuff done today - finished this set from vick/maggie, worked on two sets of starters from gumbek (finally!), starters from maggie, and starters from lisa (thouartdelyrias). Got another set of starters from mesektet which I haven't quite thought what to do with but might have a go at later today. And perhaps make some starters of my own - and then, lots of things into the mail! Whew.

I got return to sender mail from FAITH. I mailed these in Feb according to the postmark.
It took a long time to get returned to me. BECAUSE the address labels someone made me had 2 numbers transposed in the zip code, but they finally found their way back to me.

This set is a starter from VICKY and I wanted her to know they are NOT lost and I will mail them on to a third. No photo but a green background with a shamrock on it.
