    that is strange as i used the same pm list i always do.

    this is just a quick look at things so i will be back later today to make a change or two. tellurien has a new address so everyone will get a new homers list and i will send out an active list to those that need it.

    if anyone else didn't get an active or homers list list let me know.

    thanks all

    OK, so I finally figured out why you guys have been so quiet lately - you haven't, I just missed the move. Which is funny, because round about 960 messages I noticed we'd be moving soon, so you'd think I'd have worked it out.

    Too late to the party to comment, really, but I do look at the likes - not all the time, but if I have a lot of seconds and starters to go out, I'll try to match them to what people like. Sometimes, if I don't have a lot of stuff waiting and I want to send homers to someone, I don't really worry about the likes, just the dislikes, but it's handy to have the likes. Some of you have been here so long I know what you like (like I know what I can do with something which has sports, food or sewing on it... can anyone say "allegrae"? lol)

    Anyway, having the mailing list in two parts is fine - I just leave it in my inbox, and I don't have to look at the homers very often anyway... I keep a printout of a fairly current one next to my workspace (short version, with no addresses, just the likes and dislikes of the active players) just so I can check stuff. Sometimes I forget to do it before I make a card, but usually I remember. I wouldn't mind having a likes/dislikes list as the second post, as then I could just print that out when I needed an update, but it's not a game changer!

    It's totally fine for me - I have a couple of sets going with various themes, and other random APCs, so I don't mind having ones which don't make a complete set, if that makes sense. If I get one which happens to fit one of my themes, great, but otherwise, doesn't matter!

    I sent out Aces to AngelJoy, then I sent out 2s and 3s to Katelnorth. In other word, going backwards from what we usually do. If I keep this up (sending them to various random people) I'll be the only one with a complete set at the end. Am I doing this all wrong or can I do it any way I want to? Was that confusing?

    And of course, if you have a personal APC ad in the thread (eg click my link below, if you don't know what I mean), you can list which ones you need in a set there. And do individual trades. I've got a few going on with Karr3ll at the moment, for instance...

    Going to do a bit more more on ATCs today - it's been so hot the past few days I haven't felt like moving much [34 or 35C - which isn't so bad in the US, as you guys have a/c, but it's darn hot here - that's like 95 or so. I know Heather is laughing it me, as I've seen the temperatures in Phoenix, but you gotta remember a) very humid here and b) no air con]

    Anyway, going to have a go at a few today - I don't have a lot of stuff hanging over me, but there's a bit. Plus, some new envelopes in yesterday and today which I haven't looked at yet - from thouartdelyrias, bluskyhare, plumhill, karr3ll and heymaggie. I'm sure they are full of awesome goodies too!

    Yay, Kate - glad to have you back with the pack!

    Now, guys, I know lots of you like to use used postage stamps in your cards (as do I).
    Can anyone tell me how the *peeeeeeep* you can seperate US stamps from their envelope and glue???
    'Cause with stamps from literally anywhere alse, I dump them in a pot of hot water with a drop of dish soap, and after like 10 minutes they glide off their envelope paper. Sometimes they are still a bit glue-y, but I can rub the backs gently and they are clean.
    Then I dry and press them and can put them in my albums. Done.

    With almost all US stamps, I lose half the ones I saved in the first bath because they tear when I try to peel the paper off. The rest aren't clean, but at least still alive, so I dry them, but they are still so sticky I can't put them in my albums because they'd destroy the album and the stamps nearby. So, I bathe them again, lose another half because they disintegrate, and the rest are still, STILL sticky!!!

    So you see, I'm desperate. Any tips?
    Hugs, Sarah

    I have read that you can spritz the front and the back of the stamps with rubbing alcohol, give it a chance to soak in, and the stamps will separate from the paper. I have not tried this yet. Maybe I will get an old common stamp and try it out. Some US stamps will actually soak off with warm water, but I have ruined so many, that I am hesitant to try it! I’ve resorted to leaving them on the paper, which is not ideal either!

    Thanks for the tip, Suzi, I tried it immediately!
    It helps with getting rid of the excess paper (I could rub these little paper crumbs off without destroying the stamp, that's a plus!)
    It doesn't really affect the stickiness, though. :S
    Hugs, Sarah
