02-22-2008, 06:08 AM
do you remember the date you sent them Bluebelle?

I have know the mail from Australia to take 2-3 weeks. One took 6 weeks but it did go via France.

02-22-2008, 01:38 PM
Hey! I made it here.

02-22-2008, 02:21 PM
do you remember the date you sent them Bluebelle?

I have know the mail from Australia to take 2-3 weeks. One took 6 weeks but it did go via France.

I posted them on 17th Feb - I have rellies in UK and the mail is always quick to reach them - have had mail get from here to Scotland in 4 days, that's why I thought they should be there by now.

02-23-2008, 08:11 PM
I'm here!!!!!:wub:

02-25-2008, 02:27 AM
Have my Zens still not arrived ???? In panic mode now :sad:

02-25-2008, 05:47 AM
Nice to see you SATT and Artards.

Bluebelle - So far it's 8 days and to be honest that is not long from Australia to the UK. Yes i've had a few take 4 days but most take a week to 10 days and some taking longer. I will let you know as soon as they arrive.

02-25-2008, 07:21 AM
I have just received Bluebelle's amazing Zentangles.

They are all in now so i'll be swapping them around today and tomorrow and hopefully get them in the post on Wednesday.

02-25-2008, 08:59 AM

I've slapped my wrist and won't make any more mistakes....

03-03-2008, 02:32 PM
Yes you need to have these taken off. If you got to the itrader that you left. Click on the report itrader icon and a box will pop up. Just say something like I left itrader that was the wrong use. This will go to a member of admin who will remove it for you.

03-03-2008, 04:59 PM
okay will do. Thanks for help
