When I talk to the postal folks, they say the weather has been an issue with things getting to where they belong.  Floods, twisters, fires....I was complaining last month to a postal person about a Christmas prezzy not getting to me from back east, and she said they were just starting to get Christmas stuff from New York area the week before....so there are some reasons things could be taking awhile.

WOW!!!  That long??

Anyone remember the Volcano last year? (I put it in caps because it became a person to me)  It ate a package I sent away and 3 months later the parcel shows up right where it was supposed to be.  Silly natural disasters....

I think we're going to go ahead and post for angels for our three members whose packages have gone astray.  If the originals show up later...that will be a nice surprise!  Some of the packages have been out two months already.

So I'll give our Crafty Detective gals first dibs on our three ladies.  PM me if you want to angel for one of them please - we have:

honeyd - in the US, top 5 wishes - Animal stuffie, purse, serveware/tableware, wall art or note cards, mug/mug rug.  No knitted items please.

S is for Summer - in the US, top 5 wishes - goddess dolls, subtle pagan, cloth pads, bento, kuspuk; allergic to dogs/cigarette smoke/lanolin; no bath stuff please.

suereal - in Canada, no wheat please, top 5 wishes - tee's, small stuffies, odd Japanese stuff, odd clothes for Barbie sized dolls, sleep masks, ATC's, armwarmers, pillowcases.

I have found the good to way outweigh the bad. I had been bummed to find out my partner had flaked, but I ended up with an amazingly talented, thoughtful and generous angel. I don't think I have mentioned enough times how grateful I am that Goktrose stepped forward to be an angel!

I seem to have a 50% go with craftsters at this point.  And I simple don't get it.....I understand this site has a random factor, but really?  Does everyone have this kinda luck?

I feel like swapping kind of goes in cycles-- sometimes you get a couple partners in a row where you just don't quite get each others' styles, or things get lost or break in the mail or whatever, and it can be really frustrating and disappointing.  And then you get a fantastic partner or a great angel package, and suddenly you remember why you started doing this again.  (either that, or the people who don't have that re-inspiration moment stop swapping entirely, so you only have the people who are happy about it on the boards...)

Anyway, various postal systems have been pretty crazy lately, as other people have pointed out, and particularly if you're in the minority of non-US swappers, things are going to end up delayed from time to time. Here's hoping someone will make you an angel package that makes up for it!  Smiley

I do have to say, that I have had some compleatly lovely partners...even in the span of this disturbing issue.  And logic speeks to several thing being involved in the delay.  It is just how my brain workes.  It's been a bit of a ruff month and I'm trying to not take it personaly Grin

I just wanted to show you all what I made for "S is for summer"
I really loved working on this and still hold out hope that it will turn up where it is suppose to be going.
I went with a wicca/pagan theme for the whole parcel.

I made a set of flags,

some goddess dolls and pencil case to fit a smart pen

I keep hoping it is just held up with the postal strike in Canada but alas my gut is telling me that it is long gone.....
