    mailing your envelopes

    This is how I send my sweet candy squares. They are layered in 5 rows with 10 in each row. I put them on a card stock type paper and put them in an envelope (size Christmas pictures come in). I do wrap them in saran wrap. This way only cost me 1 stamp.

    It is the "fatness" of envelope where the biggest concern is. They do not weigh too much.

    Hello everyone
    I sent a PM tonight to everyone with March birthday babies. IF YOU DID NOT receive a this please let me know right away.

    Please send your 50 unique squares to the birthday person in time for their birthday.

    Also it would be great to hear from everyone at least 1 time a month just so I know you are still around and participating in the swap. So please post a hello from time to time.

    Barb

I have my second braid almost completed and one of our cheerleaders was so impressed she wants to learn how!!

    I am cutting squares like a mad woman over here! I've got March all ready to mail plus 20 more bags. I still need to finish squares for the May Day swap, too. And I suppose I should just keep cutting so when Sheri comes up with the next swap I'll be good to go.

    Oh, Barb, I am impressed in you can cut in the car. It is hard enough for me to do it on a steady table.

    Does any one know if you leave the 'candy' in the Pess'n'Seal wrap for 6 months to a year, will the stick residue transfer to the fabric? I hate to get it all packaged and then find ithe wrap has ruined it.

    Cut in the car!!!! Good grief. I'm lucky to cut on the table and not create a wonky mess.
