    Lucy, I've been waiting ages for a swap from Donnacr in Australia. Everyone else received their cards weeks ago. Today she PMd that they came back to her! Apparently, they made it all the way here and then the PO sent them back! That's crazy! I hope yours do better than that!

    yikes. That stinks plum.

    I'm waiting to see what comes in today's mail. I know at least 3 sets should be on their way, but I'm skeptical they will all arrive. I'm going to need to swap out the bulk of the cards I have. Im thinking I won't trade mine out and have at least a little to swap out. Fingers crossed all of them arrive.

    Well, none arrived. I am torn, I want to swap the bulk of the cards out this weekend, but it is a strange year and things are moving much slower through the post right now. Plus these sets were mailed with enough time.

    So what I'm thinking is to see if anyone would want to volunteer to wait a little while longer, up to a week at most (that puts me right on the edge to lend out). I wouldn't want more than 5 people I think, so I'd just take the first 5. There is a little danger here that if the cards don't ever show up you've waited for no reason. There is also the likelihood that people will be getting cards while yours are still being held. But, I think with 5 people we can still swap around enough even if other sets don't show.

    Any volunteers?

    And if not enough people volunteer, then I will swap out everything this weekend.

    Great. That gives me 5. I will swap out everybody else this weekend. Thanks for everyone being understanding about this and for those willing to wait just a little longer

    Thanks for coming up with a fair solution. No one could have anticipated that mail would become so slow in the U.S. that cards would be this late. Since mail to and from Canada to the U.S. has always been slower, I'm used to waiting. LOL!

    Thanks Prex, appreciate the offer. All of the cards other than the volunteers have been sorted and are ready to go in the mail tomorrow. I have a superstition that I don't like to change the color of the swap participants until they are actually in the mailbox.

    BTW, I do wants to give a shout out to my daughter Natalie, who likes to help prepare the envelops and organize cards with me. She did lots of putting stamps and address labels on to get everything ready to go out. She's supposed to go back to college in a little over a week, and it was fun to have her help.

    Ok. With the exception of the volunteers, all of the cards are in the mail.

    Please let me know when they arrive. You will leave reputation for me as your host and click on the You Rock for each individual you got a card from. I included a link "Rep" for you to easily get to a post so you can click the You Rock button.

    Hopefully, everyone gets their cards and likes them. Lots and lots of strong cards, so I think everyone should like what they get. (But I always get nervous about that)

    Just, nothing yet. I'm waiting on 3 sets for sure from this swap, one from within the US. Another swap I'm waiting on 2 sets, both from within the US. I'm hoping something will be in the mail today. Just frustrating.
