JanisElain

Just checkin in! Will look forward to receiving the packets in the mail. :D

Question for our hostess: I don't believe I received feedback for the packets. Are you waiting until the end of the swap for feedback? (Totally understandable if that's the case).

jonquil

kat
05-30-2008, 07:21 PM
Okay, I was inspired by the packets....

My favorite was the hardest, and I still have a part left over. But I have plans if I hear from hogarth soon. So far ....

KatieV
05-31-2008, 11:27 AM

Ria

I had very inspirational baggies! I only had to add a little bit to make them perfect! I hope the recipients like them! Here they are:

mrubyjean
06-01-2008, 05:01 PM
This recipient likes hers alot ~ very cool what you did with my stuff and I love the "crowned" bird you added, Katilady!
Wow ~ now I'm really looking forward to receiving "baggies" to work with!

Asena
06-02-2008, 04:22 PM
Mine arrived Saturday! We were out the door right after the mail came, so I haven't even really had a chance to *really* look at the contents. ;)

HHC
06-02-2008, 04:29 PM
Ooohhh, I hope mine come today! :)

Pippin
06-02-2008, 04:55 PM
Nice to see more are arriving! I am going to check with the Mods to see if this can be treated as a PAT with regard to itrader!

Colorfuldayz
06-02-2008, 06:44 PM

My baggies have arrived - boy, that was quick !!! Just have to put my thinking cap on and get creating. Now, where did I put my thinking cap :twitcy:

Pippin
06-03-2008, 10:55 PM
Wow they are in Australia already and yet there are places just over the border that are still waiting!! Oh the vagaries of the Post Office!!

jonquil

mrubyjean
06-04-2008, 01:14 AM

jonquil
06-04-2008, 05:33 AM
I think it's really quite funny that Chardonnay got one of Sue's baggies (they live almost down the road from each other) and it got there via Canada. Hmmmmm wonder who got mine??? I got baggies from knesi07, Kandm17 & PamPie - stay tuned

knesi07
06-04-2008, 07:49 AM
well, now i'm getting anxious! how do baggies get to australia, but not NYC! the post office is just AMAZING!!! maybe my baggies are on a vacation in, oh i don't know, japan?

Pippin
06-04-2008, 09:05 AM
Indeed, I can get stuff home to the UK faster than I can get stuff to Jean in Niagara on the lake-a 45 minute drive from here!!!!

katilady

NYJunkie

Yesterday I got my baggies from Janiselain, Kat and asena!!! I hope to get them started next week -- I'm not as quick as Janiselain.

Sue W
06-04-2008, 04:20 PM
You're right Lisa, it is quite funny. Lorraine only lives about three or four suburbs away from me ...

knesi07
06-04-2008, 09:02 PM

knesi07
06-04-2008, 10:13 PM

Pippin
06-05-2008, 09:10 AM
Hurrah, more baggies are arriving! The postal service is an enigma, last Tuesday I posted a number of fabric postcards to British Columbia, Ontario, Louisiana and Arizona, on Friday I posted one to the Isle of Wight in the UK. Guess which one got there first?? Yep the one to the Isle of Wight!!

WendyK
06-05-2008, 02:04 PM

PamPie
06-08-2008, 01:51 PM
I was excited when I heard the mailbox flap open yesterday, but it was just a neighborhood newspaper coming through - we didn't get any mail at all yesterday, so I look forward to tomorrow!

upwiththesun
06-08-2008, 04:29 PM
Finally my baggies have arrived... I think they came by stagecoach!!:wacko: I am just thrilled to have them since my boys are gone and I can make as many messes as I want to until next Saturday!!!:jiggy:

Pippin
06-08-2008, 04:31 PM

Sue W
06-09-2008, 01:52 AM
I've finished 'lovingly creating' my three cards for Kandin17, WendyK and Wulfcwen ... this required a little more thought that I first imagined. An excellent way to stretch the mind and the creativity, I loved doing this swap!! :cool: :)

Sue W
06-09-2008, 01:57 AM
Ooops ... forgot to mention I will post them tomorrow lunchtime.

Chardonnay1965
06-09-2008, 02:08 AM

My cards are finished and drying. I would scan them but my regular computer is virus laden and waiting technical assistance so I will just get them in the mail tomorrow when they (and my rained on mailbox) get dry. Fun swap!!

Pippin
06-11-2008, 04:07 PM
no arrivals yet. tomorrow i am going to question my mailman...:policeman:

That worrying as they were posted a good while ago and it seems mst people have got theirs. I will be PMing those who have not posted yet too just to check.

knesi07
06-11-2008, 10:44 PM
ok, my mailman told me to check my magazines and grocery fliers. sometimes he tucks the mail in there. so, i'll check through the mags, recycling and what not. i usually do that, but my kids may have picked up the mail and not done that. this is my morning project. he is on alert, so he'll ring my bell when he delivers the mail.

Colorfuldayz
06-12-2008, 10:13 AM
Still waiting on mine to arrive ... any plans on what to do if they are permanently missing in action?

Colorfuldayz
06-12-2008, 07:55 PM
Wooohooo, my baggies arrrived today! Now I just need to figure out what to do with them. I got baggies from jonquil, asena, and dustyspiral.

Pippin
06-12-2008, 08:44 PM
Hurrah for the postie, finger crossed for the others!

knesi07
06-12-2008, 09:41 PM
ok, well mine haven't arrived yet. i checked through all the recycling, all the mail on the counter, all the mags in the house, questioned my girls, my husband, even the dog! no one has them. (big breath and sigh) maybe tomorrow, tomorrow, there's always tomorrow...it's only a day a.............way................................. ...

06-13-2008, 09:09 PM
yay! my baggies arrived today!!!! FINALLY!!! I don't know where they've been, but what's important is that they've found their way! hip hip horray! my mailman was laughing, he said i was never so happy to receive mail (since it's always bills)! anyway, rec'd baggies from
chardonnay1965
wudwooda and

Colorfuldayz
06-16-2008, 10:24 PM
OK, got my cards ready (don't have pics up yet) ... this was more difficult than I thought it would be.

I do have a question and didn't see the answer anywhere (but I am known to overlook the obvious at times!). When we mail the completed cards back to you do we include another SASE for you to return the cards to us? I assume we do, but just wanted to double check before they go into the mail.

Pippin
06-16-2008, 10:30 PM
Yes please Colourful! That way I have your address for your cards to come back to you!

KatieV
06-17-2008, 02:35 AM
I finished my cards today - and ended up with enough goodies leftover to make a card for Pippin :D They'll go out tomorrow.

Ria
06-18-2008, 09:35 AM
I will have to resend, my envie of cards have come back to me ??????? No notice to say why, will pop back in post tomorrow. I double checked your addy - everything is OK !
Just thought I would let you know so you can be on look out for them! At least you should still get them on time (fingers crossed)!

Pippin
06-18-2008, 10:24 AM
Very Strange!!!

Ria
06-18-2008, 11:49 AM
That's what I thought, they hadn't been opened or damaged in any way, the only thing I can think of - is my return address was on a largish label on back of envie, that this was mistook for forward address ?????
Anyway, in new envie - with small sender address stamped on back.
The ways of the Postal Service are very wierd - I'm sure things go into a ' mail post' triangle and appear at a later date. Maybe it's Aliens!!!!!!!!!!


Very Strange!!!

Pippin

All in the mail today!

Wow - great card for me mrubyjean! I hardly recognized the ingredients -- you did such a great design.

I have two of my cards done and as soon as I get the third done I'll post them -- should be sometime this week.

Bluebelle235
07-01-2008, 03:17 AM
My cards are done and went postal today. I really struggled with no. 3 - sorry, I forgot to write down the name of the victim, I mean recipient. :embarrassed:
(keep your fingers crossed that they arrive in time, the last thing I posted to Canada has still not arrived after 19 days, should take a week to 10 days at the most :wacko: )

Bluebelle235, I totally feel your pain ... I had struggled a little with one of mine and a LOT with another. Which reminds me that I still have not posted pics to my gallery. I will try to get that done in the next day or so ... life is just a little scattered right now.

Pippin ~ Did my collages arrive? I notice my name is in red, but I didn't see a post saying you'd received it. Pardon my slight recent paranoia about the mail ~ it has seemed a bit less dependable lately ~ thanks!

Pippin
07-02-2008, 03:18 PM
Hi mrj! if your name is in red then that means you have your packages but I have not received the final cards back yet. I will double check tonight for you though. I do know what you mean about the mail!

Pippin
07-02-2008, 10:06 PM
Hey mrj, they arrived today! Gorgeous cards too! katilady will go nuts for hers!!!! Thanks for the extra one too!

I will be mailing my cards tomorrow. Hope they arrive in time. I am having to deal with the unexpected death of my brother, so a bit distracted at the moment.
I have to admit I struggled with 2 of mine, very strange items to put together. I did my best with them

Pippin

So sorry to hear that Wendy, I am sure they will be here in time!

I am very distressed to report that I have not heard anything from DustySpiral at all despite emails. I will have to check and see whose stuff she got and then work out a plan. Almost all of the cards are in and that means I had best get my butt in gear and get mine done LOL!!! I have to say there are some awesome cards, you would never think that you had no control over the content!!

JanisElain
07-15-2008, 04:05 AM
Pippin - I have an email address for her, and also a mailing address. Would you like me to send her a reminder via snail mail, since I'm in the USA (and it would get there within a few days)? I'll PM you her email address, so you can try reaching her that way, if you'd like.

Bluebelle235

Oh, Pippin! I'm so sorry to hear about your fall. I hope that it wasn't your 'primary' wrist that was broken; and I hope that the pain isn't too great! Wishing you a really speedy recovery.

ksj1717
07-21-2008, 10:22 PM
Ow! That sounds so painful, Pippin! I hope you'll feel better soon. I can wait on the returns...I know they'll be awesome!

JanisElain
07-23-2008, 08:22 PM
Pippin - sorry about the broken wrist! Heal quickly, my friend!!

In the meanwhile, I have some good news for you. I sent DustySpiral a letter on the 15th, and she phoned me today to explain her situation. She apologized profusely for not sending her baggies back in. Her mother had a major health crisis, and so she (DustySpiral) is now providing care for her 24/7.

I encouraged her to locate her baggies and send them to me or to you (Pippin), whether or not she's had time to assemble them into cards. She is going to look for them and will phone me back in a few days with an update. I'll keep you posted when I hear from her.

Pippin
07-23-2008, 09:02 PM
thanks Janis! I do hope her Mum gets better

Hello again! Pippin, I heard back from DustySpiral and she sent her cards on Tuesday (7/29/08). She's sending them to me, and I'll forward them on to you right away (I'll make a special trip to the airport post office, so they'll get to you fastest).

Pippin

Pippin
08-09-2008, 05:42 PM
They have not been mailed yet Inkadink. not sure if you saw the post but i broke my wrist so the process of sorting and mailing is somewhat difficult and delayed. i am still waiting for a few sets of cards too. one of which i know is on the way.

i am now on cast 3.1 ( modification of the 3rd cast) and am hoping that this one is ok for the duration. also now on diuretics to see if that alleviates the swelling issues!

mrubyjean
08-09-2008, 09:12 PM
Oh, gosh, Pippin...so sorry to hear that healing your wrist has been such an ordeal!

Pippin
08-13-2008, 01:00 PM
hi peeps, i am now on cast number 4 but this seems to be much better. i am going to start sorting this weekend and these cards will start arriving next week i hope. I may not be able to do them all at once as i still have to rest and elevate the left arm!

Thanks for your patience everyone, i feel bad that i kept you waiting for three more weeks.

Ria
08-13-2008, 01:04 PM
Hey! I'm sure we can all be a little patient, considering the circumstances, sorry to hear of your problems, it all sounds very painfull!!!!!! (OUCH!) Hope you recoer soon!

no pressure about the returns, just concerned about ya!

Pippin
08-28-2008, 02:11 PM
Well the pesky cast is due for removal on Tuesday!! I am prepared for the possibility of pain as i then try to move bits that have not moved for 6 weeks!!!! But then at least i can do physio and hold things! Thanks!

jonquil
08-28-2008, 05:58 PM
hope it all goes well and is not too painful

knesi07
08-28-2008, 09:36 PM

Pippin
08-29-2008, 02:09 PM
Mooney your cards finally made it!!!! There is no postmark at all so have no idea where they have been!

katilady
08-29-2008, 02:15 PM
No pressure at all, but how close are we to sending out? And how's your wrist?

Pippin
08-30-2008, 02:52 PM
I am part way through sorting, i have to do it in fits and starts and then cool the arm off!!! it gets so hot in this cast, I wouldn't normally have the air on today but had to to keep the hand cool!!! Can't wait for tuesday when it can have a wash!!!!

knesi07
08-30-2008, 04:54 PM
oh poor pippin! tuesday will be a good day! :yes:

Pippin
09-01-2008, 11:06 PM
ta da!!!!! All but 5 envelopes have been sorted, swapped double checked and stuffed!! they will be mailed on wednesday . I have put a few little goodies in the envelopes to thank you all for your patience, paper sequins and some punchinella etc. The remainder will be done by the weekend as i have to finish my cards!!!!

Thanks again for your patience with the wrist etc!

katilady
09-01-2008, 11:13 PM
Oh yay! You are a sweetheart Pippin! I hope the wrist is feeling spiffy ASAP!

Pippin
09-02-2008, 07:58 PM
Well the cast is off, but where the muscles have gone I do not know. They have vanished and the wrist is not cooperating!! I know the cast has not even been off 12 hours and I am expecting miracles!!! For art and sewing I have limitless patience, for my own infirmity NONE!!!!!

katilady
09-02-2008, 07:59 PM
Tell that wrist to behave! LOL! I am sure it will be back to itself soon!

altermyworld
09-02-2008, 08:58 PM

i know you are just dying to do something, soon girl soon.

09-03-2008, 09:38 AM
so happy to hear the cast is off. remember not to over do! it will soon be back to its old self! don't worry about the swap...in due time....

Asena
09-03-2008, 03:15 PM
Well, even if your wrist is misbehaving, at least the clunky ol' cast is gone!

Pippin
09-04-2008, 09:18 PM
Indeed Asena!!! Today I managed most of the day at work sans brace!!! by 4.30 i have to admit the wrist was aching!!And I have done my physio excercises three times today, if i gain one additional degree of mobility per day that is an improvement!!!

I can indeed confirm that all but 5 envies are on their way, most were over the standard thickness but hey I knew that would happen after the last swap like this! I do hope you like all the returns there are some great cards on their way!!!
Please let me know when they arrive and if you have time to leave rep points I am sure the creators of the cards will appreciate this!

NYJunkie
09-05-2008, 08:47 PM
Pippin -- remember you haven't used your wrist in a long time and it takes therapy for weeks to get back to normal. In the meantime, don't overdo and have a set-back.

I look forward to getting the swap cards.

Pippin
09-10-2008, 09:42 AM

kat
09-11-2008, 11:26 AM
Pippin -- I hope you are feeling better everyday. My youngest daughter shattered her wrist a few years ago, so I know how hard it is to deal with. She faithful performed her rehab exercises and recovered nicely. (No easy task, but well worth the effort.) I hope the same for you -- and soon!

This was a wonderful swap! Thank you for hosting and to Katie V, NY Junkie, & Asena. My materials included a stamp of my granddaughters. Everyone created beautiful art, but Wendy outdid herself by making a card for each of my granddaughters as well as me!! They'll love it!

Pippin
09-11-2008, 11:45 AM
Hurrah!!! The first ones have arrived! I remember those cards too, they are adorable!

NYJunkie

My cards arrived today! Thanks, Pippin for soldiering on; I hope you didn't overdo it getting the returns out to us. As before, this was a fun, fun swap. And as before, I'd forgotten what I even sent, so it was such a nice surprise when I saw the art I received from NYJunkie, KatieV and Colorfuldayz! Always a pleasure to receive such unique pieces of art from very talented artists. :D

Pippin

yeah it's crazy pippin. i am sure the cards will make it over eventually to me. were you the one who made me that crown? the paper leaf faerie one? i'm pretty sure it took awhile to come but it was so worth it when i ripped that box open and saw how beautiful it is.

Arggggggggggg Four envies are back here, Janis, Curbside, katilady and Buffalos. They are now deemed to be too thick, well they were fine when they were mailed!!! Temper tantrums aside I think the cards must have slipped together, anyway they are now all in small envelopes so that they are as fat as they will ever get and they will be back in the mail tomorrow even if they are classed a small parcel now! Grrr
Sorry for the delay ladies, hopefully these will be with you very shortly
