Bluevioletz, I think you missed me. I asked if I could be part of the group right before CiCiCreates showed her lovely ladies. I think you were starstruck! Anyway after seeing your lovely ladies I definitely didn’t want to be overlooked!! Would you please sign me up.:jiggy:

Bluevioletz

Bluevioletz, I mailed my cards today and forgot to stick a note in the envelope. The note would have clarified that of the three I sent, one is for you and two are for swapping.

I don't know why but I can't upload my pictures anymore. Maybe my format isn't accepted anymore. I don't know. I'm on a Mac.

Bluevioletz

Hi Smidgen, are you able to upload to you gallery?

art_junkie
12-14-2020, 01:23 PM
Is the file too big?

Smidgen
12-14-2020, 03:29 PM
I went to Manage Attachments, then to Add File, then to Choose File and nothing would come up so I could get my pictures from my home page/dashboard.

Are my girls there yet? I mailed them with the florists which you have received.

Bluevioletz
01-04-2021, 10:48 PM
Hi Fandanie, unfortunately, I have not gotten them yet. I even checked back on the florist envelope but only the florist set is in there. Im crossing my fingers it's not lost!

Smidgen
01-05-2021, 11:48 AM
Wow! I just looked back and I posted that I sent my cards 2 weeks ago! The post office is not looking to good. Fandanie and I are not that far from you. If they are not there by your withdraw date I will have to bow out. Hopefully, that won’t happen. :unsure:

Bluevioletz
01-05-2021, 10:05 PM
Hi Smidgen, understood. Hopefully the post office catches up! It could definitely be due to the holidays so just wishing they show up soon so we don't have to worry!

Mail Call! Seascape131, your fabulous girls with flowers have arrived!

Please let me know when my girls arrive. I'm worried.

Bluevioletz
01-13-2021, 10:41 AM
Hi Fandanie, I know, i'm worried too but still staying hopeful!

Fandanie
01-18-2021, 04:11 PM
