    Most times when I do the Trash to treasure swaps. the player adds an extra forever to cover my sent out trash. Except this swap most players forgot.

    Hubby seems to get more annoyed that I do, I mean 55 cents to 80 cents is a small price to play for my entertainment.

    I guess it tends to add up after a while.

    I'll try to remember to enclose some extra postage with my cards when I send them in. Probably owe you a couple of extras?

    CQ5 - I've got some forever stamps that can only be used when mailing FROM the US - I'll add those when I send in my T2T houses.

    My coins went out this morning
    On the left, I used the winter house card as background, words from the book page, coffee pot from CQs return label and share the joy from my own stash. Blue and green pastels were used on the coffee pot.
    On the right, I used the floral card as background, quote from CQs stash, 3 dots with lines from the envelope and red dots from my stash. I used metallic rose ink for outline and dots.

    On the left, I used the black & white card as background, cassette tape from CQs stash, orange heart from my stash. I used orange ball point for writing and filling in some circles.
    On the right, I used the gold swirled card for background, words from the book page and numbers from CQs stash, added red striped paper from my stash. I used burgundy pastels on the edge and behind the numbers.

    I am slowly giving itrader, doing you rocks for hostess coins, adding links to each name so players can easily give you rocks. and changing players from red to Purple when I get each person done.

    Great us of my trash including the image from my return address label. I sure like coffee themed cards.

I took them to the post office this morning and sent them priority mail. They should be delivered on Saturday the 27th.

    Great coins. I wonder if there is anyone who really really love OWL coins, cause that one is well done. I like the words about being conscious of others.

    Hey Maggie, your coins arrived. I do have to admit, I was more interested in the items you used to "PAD" your package.

    I am working on some envelopes for an OLD< outdated, Old-fashioned overstock swap. I am going to use the 10 vintage repro black and white bags. I will cut them in 1/2 to make 20. I hope that is ok with you.

    AND now back to our regularly programed swap. I really loved the sweet dream coins, even though the owl was the far superior work of art. I just figure someone is an owl lover and I am hoarding a great coin. Lets see if anyone pipes up about that.

    CQ5, YOU ROCK. I love that you already have a plan for the bags. I get a new one or two a month. Use all that packing material as you please! Theres a ton more where that came from. Hahaha!! Im so glad the guy at the post office was right. Love the T2T swaps! I hope to be able to catch more of them later on. Although I was sorely tempted with the house-shaped one. I may host a house shaped swap too when I can commit again. What is it about the T2T swaps that are so hard to resist? Its gotta be that unknown collection of bits and bobs coming in the mail.

    The owl was the best one.
