Whoop whoop, heading to the post office in a mo to post my package to sorbetsurprise Grin

EDIT:  Cancel that, I took so long packaging and labelling the darned package that I only had 10 mins to get there and park and go in so it was closed Sad  They're open tomorrow morning though apparently so I'll mail then instead Smiley

I had had plans to make an item before sending last week, but since the deadline was coming up fast (and I forgot to buy the main part of the item), I decided not to do it.  but when life got in the way and I ended up needing a little more time to craft, I felt bad for not being able to get Rae's stuff out on time.  I've never sent late and I really do feel bad about it (but everything WILL be ready to go on Thursday), so since I already had to go to the craft store today to get something for none of my swaps, I figured I'd get the stuff for the "forgotten" project.  I went to the store (it wasn't a craft store, mind you.  Wink  now it really makes you wonder I bet) and they were sold out!!!  I was about to give up when I noticed a sale (who doesn't love a sale?) in another store.  I went in and got exactly what I needed (and it was BETTER than the original one I was going to get), then got the rest at the craft store.  about 3 hours after getting home and eating, I had finished an item that made me laugh maniacally every freaking time I look at it.  if I couldn't make more of these for myself (actually, I can, just not right now.  I need more ___________ and _______), Rae would NOT be getting this.  lol.  but since all I need is more of those 2 things, she can have this one I suppose.  Wink

I am seriously excited for you to get this stuff Rae!

imagine, if you will, the first 30 yards of a football field.  now, imagine that it's tape.  that's nearly how much is on that box.  that's also where a good deal of its weight is.  have a sharp object (but not too sharp.  you don't want to cut anything) and possibly some Goo Gone to clean said object ready.  it will be in the mail tomorrow.  I can't wait till you get it!  and I'm so happy you were patient with me!

*EDIT*
ok.  it's a full 30 yards of tape on that box.  I realized about an hour later that I hadn't taken pictures.  damn.  so I cut it open, took pictures and finished off the last of the roll of tape.  it's not that I don't trust you Rae (or any of my partners) it's just one of those things about me.  I have to have pictures of everything before I send it.  what if it gets lost in the mail?  what if no matter how hard you try, you can't get a good picture of something?  I'm grateful for my partners when that happens to me (though I haven't really had that problem with my nifty new camera).

so now it's probably going to cost a fortune to send it since most of the weight will probably come from the tape, plus the ________ weigh a little much.  let's put it this way, it's something that I will probably only do for US partners as doing even one would put me too close to the 4 pound international weight limit (anything over 4 pounds gets this very special, very scary customs form).  I'd do variations of it, but not these actual items.

I sent, I sent.

Rae, could you take a picture of the outside of the box just to show everyone how anal I am?  I really wanted everyone at the post office to understand that the box is fragile.  once you open everything, I think you'll understand why I'm so worried about it.  Wink

That is...a butt ton of tape. I will most definately take pictures of the box when it gets here, no worries. And I did the same thing! I packed up R0ckwithme's package, then had to take it apart because I had forgotten to take pictures. *sigh* I always do that. But I have them, just in case. And because I'm proud of one of the items I gave her. Smiley
