Also a question to all, Morningstar lives in the UK, what means that shipping might be a little more…same when shipping to me (Canada) now 2 years ago I sent to UK and Morningstar sent to me…(and she send lovely gifts) I wouldn’t mind receiving from her again…but that wouldn’t be fun for her if she keeps getting gifts from me…so one of the other girls is ending up with an address to the UK…if that is a problem for one you…please send me a pm. If I don’t receive anything I assume nobody has a problem with either UK or Canada and I mix up all the names.

 

If you bring your gift to postoffice and request over land and not air, it is much cheaper, only downside is it takes a little longer, but if shipped on time it still should be there before Christmas.

Sorry  I am being a pain living so far away I quite understand if no one wants to swop with me as postal is very expensive nowadays. I am more than happy to share with you again Astrid but dont want to hold you back from some one new. This is so much fun as I have participated for two years now, the excitement when that parcel comes with the mail man is so intense you can not wait to rip the parcel open and squeal with delight at the goodies inside. I so hope that a few more people decide to join in, it is such a shame to miss out. It is a good idea to request overland as opposed to air and the wait is well worth it in the end xxx

Ordinarily, I don’t usually mind about postage abroad, but as I am moving and I don’t know what the expense might be. You know how moving pops up unexpected expenses. It isn’t fair to Morningstar or Flatlander to only swap between themselves. I’m sorry but I only budgeted for US postage. I’m sorry to take my name out of swapping with either Morningstar or Flatlander at this swap. I feel so bad about that.

I look forward to this swap every year since I discovered it. I will plan better for next time. Especially if you would pm me with approximate shipping costs so I can keep in mind how much to save for next time. I would so love to send a gift abroad to either of you. I’m just sorry that I can’t do it this year.

No worries Ameryl, to Canada is not that much, but not sure how or what…I make sure you send in US only. No point of taken your name out.

Alright, I have my gift all packed and ready for an address. I’ll be packing up my printer last anyhow since I don’t like how it travels in the moving van. LOL, no hurry or anything, I am just getting things organized. I’m loading a truck today. So I most likely will put the package in the mail tomorrow. I hope that is okay.

 

I’m just so excited! I love swapping.

My swop is also ready all packed and raring to go. You have done well to make a swop gift Amerayl what with moving an all, I hope the move goes smoothly for you it is always a stressfull time. I will be out for most of the day as my Hubby has a precious day off so we do like to get out and do something while the weather is reasonable, so I will have to do the post office run tomorrow as well. Love to you all and a very happy Holiday season xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Thanks Morningstar, I do look forward to this swap and try to make things ahead of time, since I know that November and December are very busy, at least for me.

I’m sorry that I won’t be able to send out my package quite yet as I am leaving today to start my 3 day drive to my new home. hissy-fitBut rest assured, the gift will go out just as soon as I get there. Well just as soon as the Post Office opens anyway.

I hope everyone will have a very good week. Merry Christmas!happy-flower
