I'm just concerned about the people who can only make one trip to the PO today. I need to go now, and can only send to three people in my group. I'm probably not going to be able to go again until tomorrow. If I get back home and new people are greenlighted this afternoon, technically I'm sending late if I don't send out to them today. I just want to make sure people aren't penalized in this situation.


I hope that people aren't penalized too.  In the sweat shop swap, it was changed so that there were two dates, one for going green and one for shipping a couple days later.  So that this wouldn't be a problem for people sending on the last day (or not being able to) because their partners turned green on the last day.  Maybe we could do that here?  Make today the green light day and then have a 'send by' date of May 2?

That would be great! Then I could just make ONE trip to the post office on Saturday, May 2nd. Smiley

How about jumping the gun a bit?...I mean, the others in my group have recently posted that they've finished and/or are awaiting dragonmama's green light. I'm thinking I'll just post them all today as I too only have time for one trip to the PO and unfortunately Saturday will not work for me. Sigh...the stresses we put on ourselves. Smiley This has been very fun though. I hope you all like your birdies!!!

Sorry for the problems. I'll move the send date to the 5th of May. Please send pics by the 2nd or be considered late.

Gotta love the color green! All my little birdies have flown the coup. I just got back from the post office. I just walked right up to the counter too. No line or anything! Woot! Tis a good day. I have huge spoilers on my blog and flickr site, so peek at your own risk.

I just received the cutest/funniest little bird from Avesthel!! He is perfect, thank you!
I have to go to work (I think the mailman comes 10 minutes before I leave just to taunt me...) but I will be sure to post pictures tomorrow! I think we're going to be calling him Looey (don't ask me why... DH is being silly).  Tongue

I did manage to make it back to the PO today, so all my birdies are flying off to their new homes now. I hope everyone likes them. Smiley

Yay!  I'm so glad you like him!  Cheesy  I have a mini one just like it because the prototype turned out way too small.

I sent all of mine off this morning, even though two people in my group weren't technically green-lit, and one still isn't. I just kind of hate going to the post office. Tongue Now I just need to PM the organiser and my partners.

I can't wait to get my birds! They'll probably take a while, though. All of mine are going across the pond to America, so I guess that's a two, three week wait. They were sent priority, though.
