Well guys, it looks like all squishies were delivered! I want to thank everyone for participating and for all the 'surprises' I received.

Keep cutting, I'm sure we'll have another swap soon. :-P

And thank you for undertaking this "extra" swap. Good job!

Loved the extra swap. Ready for the next one to start. I have also been cutting neutrals/blenders as I get them. Please let me know when we can start again. So much fun!

i usually cut my stamps a little bit larger than 1.5" to make sure the receivers can have a true 1.5" square. i am aware that we may all use different methods to cut our squares, i am just asking that we take a bit more time to make sure the squares are 1.5". while a couple of "short" squares may make it into the baggies, 20 of 100 squares are too many imho.


I agree with you on this one as well HAv, I went back through mine and had at least 12 that were to short. hen there are the wonky ones that dont square up and to recut them they will only be about 1 1/8 " .. I am getting disappointed with swaps lately, I dont blame the hostess for they are not responsible for packages like these in this swap.

Wish all particiapints would take a little extra time making their swap items. I try to do my best and if I wont use it then I wont pass it along. So let sall try to make it better next ti,e around....

Well, I wasn't going to "complain" because I thought out of 1000 stamps the dozen or so unusable ones weren't too bad. But since you opened the subject: I too found at least a half dozen that didn't measure up, some were cut wonky, and several included the selvedges, which makes them also unusable. I'm pretty sure mine were OK, but if they weren't, please let me know!


If any of mine were cut wrong let me know I cut strips and then cut each square. I try not to send any doubles...

Just curious if there is going to be a winter or spring swap. I have 20 bagged and ready. Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
