21  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Happy Mail Swap (SU Aug 17-26; SO Sept 14) on: August 31, 2016 11:32:02 AM
Just finished!  I'm very please with my crafting.  I had to use strategies for 3 days of naps but I got there.  I'll hold off from sending until after the weekend just to make sure this is what I'm sending. You never know when 11th hour inspiration will strike. 

Speaking of strikes... Canada Post is up and running! Yay.

I'm still in. I'll find alternate means of sending if required.

I'm Canadian too.

For handmade envelopes, I've been using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. I got it for Christmas a few years ago and made all of my wedding invitation envelopes and a bunch of gelli printed envelopes for several swaps with it. You don't have to trace anything...just cut it out to the size specified on the board, score some and make some punches and you have whatever size envelope you desire! It's super fast. With a JoAnn or Michaels 40% off coupon, they're pretty cheap.


I have one too and its what I plan on using.  I have had so much use out of it.

My experience with Canada Post is there wouldn't be tracking unless I paid (a lot) more for it specifically.

If it is helpful - I think the next strike deadline is August 25th, plenty of time to know and figure out alternatives before send outs - and before sign ups end.  But the union has the option of either going on strike, or extending the talks.  The union has to issue 72 hours notice if they are going to strike or not.  I guess if worse comes to worse, we Canadians can drop out (wahhhhhhhh!) - or have alternative forms of shipping - like UPS, or some other small carrier.

Or it could be a tempest in a teapot.  If there is a strike, I can see the government stepping in within a few days to a week, and legislating workers back to work, and possibly forcing arbitration on both parties.

With those dates maybe it would be over before Sept 12.  I imagine there would be a backlog of mail but it would get out.

Sending in my q momentarily. Hopefully the Canada Post strike (potential) doesn't interfere with sending times.

I like this swap so much it inspired me to get my mom on Craftster!  She won't be eligible for this round because you need your account for a month but I'm hoping there will be a round 2 that she can join.  She's the one who has inspired me to papercraft and she is so talented.

When are we doing this?  I think this could be a regular swap.  Love the idea so much.  I'll just sign up for one partner this time, but this could be a great swap to send to multiple people if you wanted.
