Friendly aliens, Sybil. That's why we need passports to cross our conjoined lands, eh?

And if they make us carry passports, shouldn't they at least have to stamp them for us ... I have this beautifully empty, almost expired, passport ... OK, there might be two stamps in it ... and yet I pretty much cross the border weekly ... seems like we're doing our jobs, but customs aren't doing theirs LOL

Happy Mail Alert!

gottaproduce - your package has arrived safely.

Sandi - You rocked these topics! Blue jeans is adorable, and the "If I only had a" is sooo beautiful! Great job on all of them. Good things do come at the last minute, huh? Thanks for the goodies for me - the animal heads are too funny, and I love the paper lanterns. Thanks a bunch for swapping with us!

Swap Update - 4 more packages will be going to the PO tomorrow.

Suji
gottaproduce
mrslaporte
QueenofInkland

Your packages are packed & ready to go. I'll be visiting the PO tomorrow morning

For the rest of you...If I haven't heard from Jessica or Nicole by Friday, then the packages will go out in Friday's mail. I will swap out their cards between those of you who are due cards from them.

Please let me know when your packages arrive. This has been a great swap ladies - the cards were fabulous!

Afternoon update -

I did make the trip out to the post office, so those packages listed earlier are on their way to their final destinations. I have heard from Jessica, and her package is due to arrive at any time. I will wait until it arrives before mailing the rest of the packages. It shouldn't be to long before everyone gets some happy mail

Good morning

Jen - maybe you should show them - visuals work really well for some folks. Maybe you can get us some new converts. They already have some stamps!

I wonder who will get happy mail today? I bet some of you will. Enjoy!

Yeah, most of them their eyes start to glaze over when I try to explain what I'm mailing ... I find the cookie exchange simile works pretty good if they actually ask you to define a swap

OH THEY ARE WONDERFUL.

I opened the package and started taking them out, and Charlie came over to see what I was so excited about. I let him sniff them, and he looked up and said something like mmmphhh and walked away. I think he thought it was something edible. But he isn't an art critic anyhow.
But they are lovely and everybody hit the nail right on the head with the themes. Thanks, y'all, and thanks to Joyce for taking such good care of us. And sending miss Boo kitty back. She never told me why she decided to run away, but said she had a really good visit!
I JUST LOVE ALL OF YOU!

Default Sorry!

Dear sweet group .... I apologize, I had my box ready to go and failed to get to the post office... Student teaching is putting a large damper in my life.. The cards are complete - so I'd like to send them to you and since Joyce has already swapped them out - I'd appreciate it if you would PM me your address and I will get them out this weekend.

Very sorry.

Nicole

These are really cute. All so different. Love the texture of the white pair.
Great theme Betty.

Happy Mail today!!! Doing the Happy Dance (no, it's NOT the Chicken Dance---that's a reference to a TMI shared over on Joyce's Halloween swap). Thanks to our hostess and my swapmates. I will post pics in my gallery & let you know when I do so you can all see my Russian nesting dolls, my vintage hula girls and ALL the stuff that the cat dragged in.

Nicole
This is one of those moments where I wish the little envelope for PMs came with a buzzer.

Can you see me here waving...you've got mail...you've got mail!!! LOL

(I've sent a message telling Nicole to go ahead & send them to me....the packages aren't sealed yet. I can see she's online, but I can't get her to hit the refresh button on her screen.

This is not the first time I've been in this position. I send out a message and the person I've sent it to logs off without looking at the envelope to see they have mail! Augh!!!!)

Or flashed on and off to catch your attention. Wonder if the SCS garu s could find a way to do that?

So glad to hear that the packages are arriving. It will be a few more days for mine to come, but that is to be expected.

Changing the subject, we are having a garage sale tomorrow. (we think). All the signs are up, the weather has been beautiful for 2-1/2 months with five more days expected.

Happy Mail Alert!

Jcicely - your package has arrived safely.

Jessica, thanks for mailing priority - that made the wait short & sweet! Great cards - I really like the Inspirational for Group #6 and the Buster Keaton card - good stuff!

I'm putting these in their respective packages and they will go out in Monday's mail.

More happy mail coming soon!

I don't know - is there any kind of schedule to how often it's done or how many times a year people want to do it? Like, if people decided they wanted it to be a quarterly swap then it would be easy to pick due dates...

I was thinking about a due date in mid January. This will allow plenty of time to get cards made and avoid the holiday mail rush and holiday craziness that some people experience.

I was thinking similar thoughts about January or end of January to completely finish up all holiday time in each household and still give some muse time and creativity thoughts.
