I'm still gathering goodies for my jar, but I will be sending out on time.

All I have to find is a box to send the jar in.

Hi everyone! Just want to let you guys know that while I know that DC#s are a MUST, I understand that some post offices have difficult employees- I've dealt with some myself. As some crafters have suggested, try using padded bubble mailers to mail out your stars.

If you are still unable to get a DC# due to difficult post office policies (i.e. employees), please obtain a receipt. The post office by my home gives receipts with the destinations of the package(s).

Of course, the receipt should be your last resort, short of putting a gun to a postal employee's head and demanding a DC# when they refuse to give you one.

My DH mailed out my packages for me today. I have to get the DC#s matched up the the receipt and send them to each of my partners.

Wow, just logged on to a swarm of questionnaires in my inbox!  Cheesy

I'm so excited that so many people want to join this swap. I will be posting new applicants tomorrow and adding the info to your profiles, too.

Badpuppy, I'm making you co-organizer as of now. Grin

I'm in - but when I mailed my hearts, the package size was considered large letter, or light small package and therefore did not get a tracking number or a confirmation - instead what I got was just the post office receipt for the domestic packages, and for the ones that were mailed to the US, the stamped copy of the customs declaration form. 

You can get by this by putting it in a manilla envelope with a bit of newspaper or tissue paper in it.  Or using a bubble envelope.  We had this same problem with the altered puzzle piece swap since they are small too.

Yes, but for me to have a tracking number, the package has to be actually rather significantly larger.  I have sent packages larger than the hearts that still did not get a tracking number because it was still too small.  Also, the postage is tripled or more, and I want to keep the postage cost down if possible.  The budget is a bit tighter than usual as DH has not been working that much and we have the house renovations, and I want to keep swapping, but smaller swaps.  For those packages I was not able to get tracking on, the organizers seemed fine with visual confirmation with receipts and pictures.  But if the DC number issue is non-negotiable, then I will pass this up.

Don't worry too much about DC# if you can't get it. A receipt is fine.

I sent mine in!  Super excited! My 11 year old is jealous.  She wants to get on craftster just so she can swap this one too!  Cheesy 
I'm thinking it would be a neat thing for her to do with her friends!

I'm going to be making one for my cousin who just moved into her own place- it'll be a house-warming present of sorts.

I missed the jar of hearts, hope I'm able to join this. Will have to see if I have time, but signing up for 2x2 shouldn't be that difficult. Great that you changed the title Tongue

I had actually typed Jar of Stars, but my computer has that dumb "auto-fill" crap on and it changed it to Jar of Hearts. When I saw that, I screamed! lol Undecided
