I have four to go. Mine should send by Friday. The 14th {Monday} is Passover...I don't know if they close the post office for that.

So here is the Tina School of Hard Knocks 101, and what I have learned in this process. For anyone interested in knowing.

#1 Never bite off more than you can chew. I joined a double. And this is my first puzzle swap. What was I thinking??? But I have kept good track of everything.

#2 Expect to learn things that you never imagined. Some of the themes are really interesting. And have stretched me beyond my normal comfort zone.

#3 Keep good records, and everything all together. You guys packaged are on a cookie sheet on top of my fridge!
The followups...still to do... are in a separate box on my counter. And I have two lists that I am keeping track of things for. I had all the envelopes done ahead of time. As the addresses and pieces came in. And I made sure that all stayed in order.

This certainly has been a fun whirlwind. I have two silly monsters, and two mermaids to go. So, now I am down to the fun part. I grabbed the challenging ones first. Loteria...I caught the gallery, Mr. Buck. Your puzzle will be sweet!

My pieces are coming in...and so far they seem like they will match my idea for my puzzle.

So, happy puzzling...off to make some silly monster pieces. Oh, and I was actually dreaming puzzles when I woke up this morning. Let's say it together "obsession"!  Grin

I found gala_apples the easiest...just popped into my head and her pieces were done before all the others...and then I shipped them last. So sad. It's fun when the muse hits and so hard when she hides from us. good luck.

Loteria! LA SIRENA! I love mermaids. Still trying to figure this one out for sure.
And I had to get my original mermaid shrunk at the copy place {printer died...new one to install soon}
But then I had to go back today...as they did not give me back my original newdie girl  Huh
Left on the copy machine  Roll Eyes But that is OK, as I also had her blown up to an 8 x 10 size for another project, in the mean time.

Got your stick bug ready...little cute monster girl. Just some dry time. And your sleepy panda to go for tomorrow.
And one more mermaid set. That member sent a combined pair, and said I could make it all into one. So she shall be floating on the beach. Over two pieces. A bit larger than Mr. Buck.

Did I mention that I love mermaids  Grin Yahha. I guess I did.

This certainly has been a happy challenge. I am using materials that I haven't played with in a while.
Mine will go out Saturday...I forgot that Friday is the Good Friday thing. Darn holidays. But post office should be open Saturday.

I want them all weighed and measured...so they get there well. And I have some internationals, too. They will be done and dried for the weekend.  Grin

Yeah! I am glad somebody adores me. I am weird, but it a kindly way.
So sad that my postal mailbox was empty today.
I wanted to see more pieces...
My send outs will go this weekend.
I wish to remind members, that I can't post pictures.
Computer still giving me issues I can't afford to fix right now.
So any help I can get with this is truly appreciated.  Grin
I will be Johnny On The Spot with letting members know when I receive.
Then your prescious wonderworks can be placed in the gallery.
For other members to enjoy!  Tongue

I plan to craft this weekend, after a trip to rent a longarm.  I have my ideas all written down - I just need to execute.

I received from sushipanda today....and ooooo pretty.
She of course included a panda for my nature theme, and also a really pretty butterfly piece.
She incorporated both of my themes of nature and texture.
They are brilliant. Off to PM her to see if she can post pics to the gallery  Grin

The gallery is looking great. Can't wait to see more. Very happy that the pieces I sent back are being received.  Cheesy

Also, if anyone wants to do a private trade, I have two more pieces for my puzzle that I was going to decorate myself but would be happy to send to someone else who has extra pieces in their puzzle they would like decorated. My theme is Kawaii so if your interested, PM me.  Grin
