    the one I sent was small because postage was so expensive. I appologise before hand because I had a large heavy box packed until I went to the PO and saw how much it would cost to mail. I just hope you will understand and still enjoy what I did send.

    I used the large flat rate box and just packed until it was crammed full. No problem with the weight, just one price and mail. Sent mine awhile ago and it was delivered but she hasn't said she got one, haven't seen her post either. I don't post very often either but when I get mine you'll all know. I've really been in the corner of that naughty room for a very long time and have been hiding. What happens in there.... must stay there! Just sayin'.....promise I won't tell

    It is the thought that counts. Big, small, over $20 below $20 does not matter. It is given with love and that is all that matters to me, and I am sure most will agree with me.

    it was going out of the country and so the price was extreme when I did that, over $50.00 and I just can't do that.

    Thank you, but I am a giver and I felt bad not sending more, but I like what I sent so hopefully she will.

    My package is off to the west. We have a 24 kiosk in our post office. It sure makes life easier.
    Happy Quilting.

    On another note, I'm confused......I got a package in the mail on Friday and I looked it over really really REALLY good and there was nothing on it except my name, address and the senders address, so I assumed it was from the ornament exchange......so I went ahead and opened it, inside was a beautiful wreath but no note no card, no nothing, I sure hope I didn't ruin my "surprise" by opening SS box instead of the ornament box........that would really be disappointing.
    Hi Happy Tails,

    That was your ornament from me. I am sorry about the lack of note. I went to the post office at lunch time to send it and when I got back to work the note was on my desk.

    I know it is not a tree ornament, but there should be some re-purposed tree ornaments in the box wrapped in batting too.

    the beautiful wreath !!!oh grrrrrrrrrr I can't seem to get it to upload the pics....I'll keep trying....anyway, thank you soo much

    Yes totally agree, that out of the country shipping is very expensive. Quite often 2 or 3 things are absolutely amazing and I'm sure your package is. It's often not how much is in it. I'm sure whoever she is, she will love it!!

    I know your box isn't for me as I have mine (wish I knew if mine arrived safely!).
    I used to fret about this too as I do the Secret Pal swap, but everyone knows that you have to limit the weight/contents. I always put a reminder at the end of my swap info to be careful of the weight - a little costs a lot! Don't worry - your gift will be delightful and much appreciated as it is the spirit of giving that is important.

    Marcialee they will love your present I am also sure. I couldn't pay that much either if it were me. I am like you, and I am a giver too. It will be fun.

    Just finished packing my box. Going south of me with lots of handmade and homemade goodies. Not too much was listed for info so I just kept adding as I went along. Hope she likes everything. Had to hide my package out of site so I wouldn't be tempted. My SS box will go out on Tuesday,on my way to doctor, no mail tomorrow. It has been a lot of fun and were not done yet........

    So okay, hummm; well I can say that I'm working on my box for my SS but the more I look at this thread, I feel like mine might be a bit small in comparsion. LOL. So trying to come up with some quick ideas using what I got on hand... to you know kind of fluff it up a tad.... boy is that a challenge to a newbie. And I just realized I don't have any wrapping paper!!! Good Grief Charlie Brown!!! I even passed up the chance to sign up for the Nov. SP. so that I can concertate on this one package. I still have a couple more days to ponder on so .... I'm off and running.

    Toodles,

    Your dogs are waiting to see if Tink sent them another package??? They will be disappointed...Tink is over her spending allowance and will not be shipping anything to anyone for a while. Had to take my credit card away from that stinker...she was shopping on ebay.

    Some advice-my first year I received a package w/ my name and a regular name and return address but not SS swap or any other hint that it was SS and I was in the monthly swap too, so I sent Terry a pm and asked if the name on the return addy was my ss package-she replied Yes don't open it.

    Love snickerdoodles that coconut rum with coke sound really good, glad we have a designated reindeer.

    I my past if a "attempt to deliver" notice was left it wasn't the next day but a few days later, I think it stated when the next attempt would be, but there would be 3 attempts before the 15 day to return. Hopefully the receiver will see it, but you can have Terri notify them to check with a mail person.
    I'll have to catch up on the rest of the pages I haven't read tomorrow. That might be a good day to wrap and pack too.

    Ok I saw someone post about cost of international ship. It doesn't have to be a big heavy box the rule is 4 fqs and a gift or gifts that are $20 value.
    One thing to keep in mind if you have an Interna'l the US postoffice does have flat rate for International for the small and medium boxes-the rate is slightly more than domestic rate-I think it is $14 and 18, approx. But if you have something that is lighter weight send it first class parcel or regular Parcel, and if it will travel ok in a padded envelope that will be fine too. And when you fill out the Internationl custom form be sure to check that it is a gift. I think Terri had something in the instruction about not putting the cost or value at more than $20-I think it has to do with duty tax. And again if you have any question about any part pm Terri, she is very good about helping you too. good night all.

    That's just fine, SusieT. Gus and Heidi are over the "weight limit" anyway. I have had to cut back their goodies, because they are "fluffing up for winter". I think Heidi will need her coat this winter to keep warm, and can't have any girth added to her body, or she won't fit in it. I will hit the reuse-it shops for stuffed toys for them. Heidi needs a new "baby".

    I can't believe all you guys waiting till the last minute to stuff your boxes. It drives me nuts to procrastinate, my mother was a "don't do it today, if you can put it off to tomorrow" person. I say, if you know it needs to be done, do it and get it over with. I had my box sitting here for weeks all ready to go to the post office, before I mailed it. Nothing else would fit in the flat rate box, so close it up and get it outta here. See, that's why I am out here waiting to make snickerdoodles, and you guys are panicking because the deadline is staring you in the face.

    Nancia, you need to come out and sew with Sunnie and me, on quilts for the "Sandy Relief effort". We sewed all day yesterday, and are going to do another day this week. PM me.
