Okay, I just went and checked out the Flat Rate boxes and all they say is "one price regardless of weight for delivery anywhere in the US" and "any amount of mailable material may be enclosed, as long as the box is not modified, and the contents fit inside."

So they shouldn't charge you any more money as long as your stuff all fit inside without modifying the box!  Sometimes mine are tight, but I just tape them up and never have been questioned yet.  If they charge extra, I would be tempted to complain. Wink

Shocked You know, I think you're right...  I looked at it online when I was trying to decide UPS or USPS.  I was really surprised when kiggy said they didn't want to take it... (I'm not sure, but I think she gave him that sad-eyed look like Puss-in-Boots in Shrek2.  LOL)  I still haven't heard from PinkDreams21 so I have no way of knowing.  But, this box was NOT modified...  bulging, yes but not modified in any way.  Grin

I recieved from mcorwin and I am so friggin happy! I love everything! It all came in this very roomy felted wool bag. Sorry the pic is a bit blurry.

Inside was all kinds of goodies! Some Burts soap and cream, a make a wish necklace, photo cards, a tea pot charm bracelet, a knitted phone cozy, and (i think) a shower mit.

Some cinnamon teas, hand tied teas that I can't wait to try, lavender seeds, and altoids.

And a Cherry lemonade candle on a very cute tea pot holder.

I love everything so much! Mcorwin rocks my world!!!!! Grin

Damn the man, Save the Empire!


I wanna personal swap!

OK, I recieved from halblingefrau today!!!  Shocked Holy amazing loot, Batman! Shocked  Check it out:

(I have a ton of pics to put up but I'm only doing three tonight because I'm wicked tired and I still have to resize all of the pics on photobucket.  I've already done these three)

I asked for a black purse with a pink skull.  I don't usually request something that specific, but I really, really wanted one.  Here's what she sent me:

This purse ROCKS.  There's a bunch of pockets and a key fob on the inside, which is lined with the coolest pink polkadot fabric!  The outside is black corderoy (sp?).

The inside:

Everything in it:

WOW....she post stalks so well. Grin  There are Aqua Teen mirrors, a Slytherin box with a pic of Snape and a Slytherin crest decoupaged in it, and a bracelet inside with a key on it.  The tag on the bracelet said "The key to Snape's heart?"  lol    There was another box with a pic of Audrey Hepburn decoupaged on it, and it says "Tara's treasures".  And then inside there was a toothpick knitting pin from my wists (original made by ax174 for the one tiny thing round 4 swap), and a BEAUTIFUL kanzashi flower button, made out of mesh type fabric.  There's a knitted alien dishcloth, which my husband thought was pretty cool (not the normal "Huh? Oh, nice.  My golf swing isn't working..."  lol )  A couple of pouches, one made out of the same fabric as the bag, and the other is knitted with a skull and crossbones.
There were toys for my furbabies - catnip eggroll and fortune cookie for my kitties, and a bone for Snuffles - I tried getting pics of them in action, but Snuffy turned away, and my kitty Lucius kept trying to lick the camera.  Sigh...  There was also a very cool babysitter's info pad, which has a space for them to rate your kids and put down whether they'd ever babysit again.  lol  A complaint memo pad, a kitty mousepad calendar, a couple of magnets, a grow your own flamingo, cool pink sparkly yarn, some sweet shoelaces, and a box of Bertie Botts Every Flavor Beans, which I am so tempted to give to my kids, just to laugh at their faces, but I think that would probably be bad parenting...  lol  If I eat one too, it's not, though. Right? Grin

Thanks so much, halblingefrau!!!  You rock!  And thanks, hardcoremothball, for organizing!!

Oh my gosh! It looks like everyone received some GREAT stuff while I was away! Since I was in the middle-of-no-where Vermont and did not have my sewing machine with me, I plan on finishing Kmac's purse tonight (all the innards are all set to go, and the only thing that needs to be sewn is the handle of the purse!). I realize that it's late, and I'm very sorry about that.. everything will be going out first thing Monday, though!  Cheesy
