As the person who envisioned such a 'cheap' swap and had done a few, I INTENTIONALLY went over. Getting so much stuff under 1 once is a challenge, but I did get a postal scale free and then cancelled my membership. I promise to be good on the next one.

LOL Bring on the wet noodles.  I'm so BBBBAAADDDDD!

ETA: Yes, I'm the queen of cheap.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

My husband just took my envies to the post office. I went way over, seriously...I hope I'm not in trouble. I knew they would be a little over because I didn't trust the envelopes (everything fit in regular envies, but they seemed too thin, and weren't sticking good), so I used the small bubble ones. I was so scared they would tear and everything would fall out.

I used a bubble envelope too. I will be beaten too, lol. My items definitely were not going to fit in a regular envie plus some are delicate. I know how the PO can be. They better not hurt my envie. I will be mad and send mini_mum after them, ROFL!

The day my DH sent my swaps out our new scale came in the mail, ROFL! I didn't get my scale free though. I bought one off of Ebay for only $4. WalMart had the same scale for $24.

This is my second envie swap. I don't think any of us have ever behaved and sent the right postage rate envie, lol.

I'm confused about the colors on our names that should show who has received, sent, etc. I could have swore they were there the other day, and now they aren't. I'm hoping my other partner received. I sent out a week ago.

no worries - I was going to keep both threads upto date, but too much like hard work  Undecided Kiss

Well, we're just about wrapping this one up - out of 58 envies (plus all the extras and personal swaps going on) only waiting on 19 to be delivered.

Unfortunately I haven't had notification of 3 of those being sent yet Sad

If anyone would like to voluteer to be an angel, if needed, please PM me Smiley you get a years 'friend of craftster' for doing this.

I'm getting so worried about the package I sent to my partner... How long do we wait in international swaps before we give up and send again?

PS- Are you still looking for swap angels, mini_mum?
