Sent in my questionnaire! My theme is writing/words/text/languages.

By the way, about the DC - I've previously had a problem sending an envelope with DC.  Apparently, regular envelopes are not supposed to have it.  Most of the time, they go through anyway, but there are occasional problems.  (It got bumped up to priority mail (~$4.30); receiver did not pay additional postage (understandably); it got sent back to me two weeks later.)

Sorry if you can't make it, but I'm sure many of us are up for personal swaps right now, and you can do it that way.  If you're not able to join, I'll PM you in a few days to talk about personal swapping with me.

We've run into this before.  I was going to write about it in the PM with your partners.  I usually use the smallest type of padded envelope, and then crumple a piece of newspaper or junk mail to make it bulky--then it can be mailed with a DC because it's more "package" like.  The rule, as I was told, is that it can have a DC provided it is not bendable.

Losing these pieces can be such a pain to the puzzle owner, so using a DC can be a pain, but is important to make sure pieces don't get lost.

Decided to join the fun!!!  Puzzle purchased put together.  Just need to get it numbered and in those little padded envelopes.  Plan to practice on a few pieces while waiting to get these out and and the ones I need to decorate in.

Tomorrow's pretty busy for me so I'm going to try to close and get out groups tonight. 
Yay.

If you're on the fence, try to get your form in before late this afternoon.

If you miss this sign up, don't be afraid to PM some of the participants and see if they want to do a personal swap.  I'm up for one, and ragstostitches mentioned in her questionnaire that she's up for more pieces.  I know there are others who would be interested, as well.

Excited for partners - have my pieces ready to go, just need to check in with partners before I assign pieces - some are more "challenging" than others!  Wink

THANK YOU JILL HOGAN for hosting this! It's a fantastic idea to craft with  Cheesy
