It seems to take longer to certain countries than others...

It depends on custom service... mostly.
I sent to Sweden last year, which took about 1 1/2 week, I can drive there myself in 1 day!
And I sent to Norway, the parcel stayed at custom service for about 1 week! (I sent that one with delivery conformation, I checked it constantly) So that took more than 2 weeks.
I also sent to the USA and it took about 2 weeks...

It takes a lot of patience to send abroad, doesn't it? Don't give up yet, don't give up!  Wink

I know this is weird but I noticed that when I started writing "Happy Birthday" on the packages, they seemed to be delivered faster! Grin

Maybe the post person did not want the gifts to be late!

I sent early - and still had to wait! I don't think anything reduces the swap anxiety.

Tomorrow it will be a month since I sent to Italy, and still no word. Do I start making the swap items again? I figure if I do, the first package will arrive just about the time I mail the second one...

Sorry I've been missing out on this thread. Don't worry about it. I'm still waiting patiently for it. It does take an awful amount of time for mail to come 'round sometimes. Don't really know what that depends on 'cos I do get mail from US from time to time and some get here alot faster than expected. Since this is the holiday season and stuff, I'd give it some more time. I'm confident that it's not lost. Will definitely keep you posted. Smiley

My camera seems to be taken over by a spirit...it keeps taking flash pictures over and over and won't stop!  I can't download pics, so I am taking the sim card to the store and having them put on a disk so I can recover them while they repair my camera!

Sorry for not posting this weekend, but I should have the CD after work and will post my lovelies tonight...well, except for the candy....we ate all of them before I could get a picture, but I saved the bag... Cheesy

No worries, hope your camera will be OK!

I hope you don't mind that I went ahead and gave your little treasure box its own thread. I'm sure I can find a pic of your mug rug for the gallery if the CD doesn't work out, just let me know. Smiley

And the Jaffas are awfully addictive, aren't they?
