3911  Craft Swaps / ARCHIVE OF SWAPS THAT ARE TOTALLY FINISHED / Re: Jim Henson Swap round??? sign ups -2/april/09 til 12/april/09 send out 18/May/09 on: May 19, 2009 06:14:41 PM
I wish you all had my postmaster! She is the bomb. I have gone in there with my items loose and she has helped me make strange sized boxes and has answered odd questions and prices and measurements and box issues. She knows it all and is just the best. I am very honest with her and she understands now about swapping - she comments and asks when the nest ship out is and what it all is. She knows about card swaps, etc. I can always count on her to let me know if I'm doing something wrong - she adds extra tape and writes on my boxes. It has made mailing for swaps a minor inconvenience. She no longer gulps when I say international! WE have the labels and DC's and customs forms down pat! I know which boxes are free and which I must pay for. She says my swapping is good for business!

Good luck all and let the swap anxiety begin!!!:)

I want your postmaster!!!!!!!!!!  she sounds awesome!!!!!!!!!

oh, and I found out that I did buy black ink.  so I started working on the stuff again.  Grin

well, a project that has nothing to do with the theme but is a nice little touch to my package has been put on hold until tomorrow.  I thought I had black ink, but I only have red.  I swore I had black.  oh well.  I hope it'll still be on sale tomorrow.  that would be nice.  Smiley

I just _____ part of the small I had started a while back and I was so afraid the _______ was going to ____ because it's white, and white gets dirty easily (well, it'll be ok once I ____ it) and because it's a lighter color AND the thing's tiny!  I was afraid that __________ was going to be too long and it would get ruined!  but it didn't!  and it's a good thing because I don't think I could make another one.  I've been so lucky with my ________ items.  my first tie making something with it and it turns out great.  so happy!!!

all of my other smalls are done.  just looking at maybe another large or medium.  and I'm thinking of making ^^that^^ a medium because all-in-all, it did take me a while to make.

ooooooooooooo...that looks so cool.  I am getting goosebumps just thinking about it.  I'm not saying I didn't like Twilight (because I did.  I loved it very much) but their acting left something to be desired.  now they should all be much more comfortable with each other and their characters so I'm thinking it will be awesome.  November is too freaking far away!!!!!!!!   Sad

good news!!!!!!!!!  lgd got her earrings today!!!!!!!!!!!!

and I just found out today that I can at least check to see if international orders have left the country (the guy that has been waiting on me normally at the post office is a JERK or I would have known this sooner).  I had to mail some other stuff today and I was telling this other guy (he is SO much nicer...and cute) and he said I can look to see if it even left the US.  so, Saor, I'm not sure about yours.  yours says the exact same thing as lgd's, and she got hers.  so I guess we can just hope that they are on their way.  Smiley

OK, come on people... Sendouts are now the 26th. Ok? Ok Smiley

that's the bad thing about both of my large swaps.  the last day to send is a holiday.  and most post offices in the US close at noon or 1 on Saturday.  reguardless, I have to send no later than Saturday or be late and not send till Wednesday/Thursday (Monday, PO is closed, Tuesday I have a doctor's appointment in Ohio...and I live in PA).  so...yeah.  Tongue

lgd...Saor...when did your other partners send???  if it was after me, do you see why I'm so worried now?!?   Cry

though if I understand correctly...even if the customs form came off, they will still attempt to deliver them...though that also may mean that they opened the package and your earrings (hopefully) aren't broken.  god I hope they didn't have to open them.  there was so much tape and they were packaged so nicely.  they'll never get it back together right.   Cry

ok I lied.  I didn't send out yet. Tongue

and today's little trip to the PO makes me worry about sending this out, though this mail out would probably be easier.  it sucks that we have to fill out those stupid customs forms, but I guess they do have a good reason for it.
