ive not been a member 30 days Sad and im dying to do this swap >.<!! this sucks

Hey, kool-aid I've been there! I wanted to be part of the blankie square swap! But it closed before I could be a member 30 days. I'll be a member 30 days on July 5th, so I'm counting the days to join this swap! (Okay, it's Wednesday  Shocked )

In the meantime, I found a cool purse pattern, and I found a spiral jewelry tutorial, and I put some stuff on the trading post, and added my vote to things that "rock" then I put some unwanted things on the trading post. To tell you the truth, kool-aid I'm having so much fun, it went by quite quickly.

If you want to have a "mini" swap, look at this post:

Anyway, you only have 19 days to go . . .

That sounds like a fun swap, but it's an organized one, so you'd still have to have your 30 days in. It's so frustrating waiting for that to pass. You could volunteer to be a swap angel, tho. It's a good way to build up your crafty karma! Cheesy

"A delivery confirmation number is required for anything sent within the US. They cost about 55 TO 60 cents at the post office. "

Can someone explain to me what this is? I DO plan on signing up for this, but this is the only thing I don't really understand.

When you ship a swap package within the US & you take the package in to the PO, ask for a delivery confirmation number. It's a green tag with a tracking number on it. It lets you, your partner and the organizer know when the package was shipped and when it arrived. It's proof of shipping.
If you decide to use UPS, you can send the tracking number they give you instead of the PO's DC.
I think you can also print postage and a DC off of your computer if you have a credit card. Cheesy
