That is funny  Grin The ones that really crack me up is the postal system "Sorry we f-ed up your envelope" ones. But they so far have cared enough to get everything repackaged and on it's way for me.
I have toured the postal system routing plants...and the envies there travel fast! Those machines are amazing.
But the missing ones? You are right...probably somehow stolen. Because the post office has a special department to fix things that get goofed...so they should not go missing entirely.

Anyway...I got my first set of pieces today  Grin This is going to prove to be a challenging swap, but I am up for the task.

All sent. I had an amazingly busy week...work does get in the way of crafting! Lots of travel, early rises and late homecomings. But all are in the mail and should be there soon!

And in the lull before the puzzle storm, I have 3 ATC's and a private swap to catch up on. When will I ever learn?

Thought I might share a Journal page here...puzzle themed. It is hard to see, but I added a flat back jewel on her necklace, a foil paper crown to her head. The background is a Burger King crown  Grin And some playing cards. The puzzle is a large cardboard floor puzzle for children. The pieces measure about 8" x 8". Now aren't you glad I didn't send those around!  Grin

Sorry...the only way I could get it to load. Craftster does not like my formatting, either.

I finished my first puzzle piece today...only 19 to go! And I am loving some kid crafting supplies! 3-D glitter glue. Oh, and micro beads. My test is working great for my idea of water/mermaid piece. Who knew artists could go back to kindergarten  Roll Eyes

Happy crafting!

Today's modify, so as not to double post. I got three more packages.
So far I have gotten:

vincentvanbuck
seeuudee
hazzelly
sushipanda

I will PM the members when I get time later. Just wanted to share, and post the crazy names so I can find them later  Grin

I have asked Miss Jill in a PM for permission to change my theme.
And have PM'ed the group members for a screetch of the brakes until I find out if this theme change is OK to do.

My pieces are so small...sorry, first official puzzle swap. I don't think members could find Nature things small enough to put on them.

I am awaiting an answer from her...but new theme would be just 'color and texture'. I think that will make it easier on everyone. But if you wanted to include some ladybug spots, or a flower or two...I would not mind.  Grin

My next puzzle swap, I will be sure to get the bigger style pieces. Live and learn. Cheesy

Thanks. I will be sure to let all of my member groups know when I get directions/permissions for this.

Modify: Three more arrived today!

< cmarion3..Miss Rainbow.
And two from my double swappie partner
< IsikkahJai. With the two opposite super girl puzzle peoples  Grin

IsikkahJai and stillatthetop, I'm sorry I double partnered you.
I thought I had made sure I hadn't done that to anyone, but for some reason, I keep getting IsikkahJai and zigg13pra mixed up in my head, so maybe that had something to do with it. 
Sorry about that.
