    Was surfing for fat quarters of a CW reproduction and found that The Fat Quarter Shop is selling what they call mini charms ( 2.5")

    MAMAskeeto.... why why why... don't you know I have NO self control.. I joined... You also found where I got my name for the "candy" swap. My LQS has a Moda display for their mini charms that reads "Candy, Oh So Sweet"

    OK Wanna see my process... no critiques, it works for me.

    Pic 1- Candy all laid out, and it's a good thing I count and count again, I left 5 candy packages in my office, so the floor was actually covered more than the picture shows.

    Pic 2- All swapped ready for postage label. And again, a good thing I check and recheck... I found one package with NO label... Had to go through each package as I put them in my tote, which was ok, I could double check that I put in the "Valentine's Candy".

    Pic 3- In tote, in office, waiting for postage... ok ok ok I'm printing postage now. I use USPS online. They made it so easy, and yes, free tracking when you print it online, which is why the cost is less than what I originally posted on the thread in December. They'll even pick up at my house. I had to tell hubby not to worry when our account showed a paypal to USPS. I have the $$ safe. (really hubby, safe...)

    Thanks for the photos and all your hard work. Please let me know if I sent you enough postage and if there is too much, please put it towards tape!

    I visited this site......did I interpret it correctly that 4 (four) squares (2 1/2 inches each) costs $13.98 plus postage?
    Please reassure me there is much more to this.

    No, Mary what they send you if you join the club is 4 packs and the names of each pack are listed next to the month. Each pack has 42 squares in them. I signed up for the club too! It will be a candy fest every Month!

    It's $3.50 per pack plus shipping and tax. My shipping was $4.95 and tax was $2.72, but I ordered January's pack too ($13.99). YEAH ME!!! It sounds like alot but, I think it evens out to just under $5. per pack. I justify it this way..... My hubby moved me to the middle of stinkin NOWHERE..... Any QS is easily over an hour away... My gas is worth the postage. And, Un-Happy Birthday to ME every month. lolol

    You have TB and need popcorn?????

    I applaud your set up in that you can either get down (an Up) from the floor or you can bend over that whole time! You Go Girl!

    Keep any extra money - a hostess deserves it...no matter how much fun she says she's having!

    I have not been on the board for a couple days. I am probably the last to weigh in about the postage. Of course, I wouldn't want you to bother with a refund. That would be silly! I don't think that the free tracking is limited to online printing. When I mailed my candy to you, the lady at the post office told me tracking would be included with the rate hike. We will see..
    Thank you again, Sheri!

    You sure showed us the candy!!! LOL! Wow that was alot of it. That system would never work at my house. I have two boston terriers (AKA the twins of terror) and they would have snatched as many packages of candy as their little mouths could carry.
    Just want to let you know how much we all appreciate the hard work you do for this swap. I know it's a love of labor but it is greatly appreciated!!!

    Yes, the tracking is included...no forms to fill out...it is on the receipt...I believe I paid 5.75? for a flat rate legal sized envelope..same as the padded envelope ..no padding just a couple of inches longer...
