    If you really had to use bricks for packing, I sure hope you used a flat rate mailing box!! If it fit's, it ship's!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    My box is all wrapped up and label is printed. I couldn't stuff anymore into it. Will be stopping by the PO after work today to send it on its way east of here. I wrapped some of the items but not if it made them take up more room. So it will be a mixed bag.

    I patiently await a pkg on to arrive on my doorstep. That's okay, at least it is won't get lost in the chaos so far. And I will be out of the house for awhile at my Mom's for Thanksgiving so it will not tempt me too much until next month.

    Had to fight the postmaster to get my ss package but I have it. She said she left a notice, But thinking she was triing to get my goodies. She had put it back and was waiting for me to come in she thought I was on a hunting trip and had it saved for me. Hope this doesn't happen with the 500 hatching eggs I've got coming. Sent my package on its way the confirmation number has a lot of 0s a couple 0f 1s,0ne 2, two 3s and one each of 4, 6, 7, 8, and 9

    Just letting my Secret Santa know to keep her eyes open for her parcel!!! I mailed it out today! It is in a package that will make it very difficult to peek! Plus I added some of the ever popular bells to help the mood!!! I hope you like what I picked! I had to stop adding things the 'box' was packed! Could not even fit one more little bell!!!

    Well my package is ready to close up and will be on its way first thing in the morning. I waited till the mailing date because I love to add little extras and fun things to my packages and I wanted everything to be as fresh as possible. . . . . but when I re-read my SS's wish list I decided that she really was very specific about what she didn't want so I decided to stick to the basics. I hope she likes everything!
    . . . .hmmm. . . .would it be bad to slip into the naughty corner for a quick little sip of something yummy???

    Me and my husband got our SS packages out to the post office today, so they are on their way. Mine is headed NE. His is head N and a little bit W. The man at the post office wasn't too happy to see us coming with our goodies. We had to figure out which box would hold everything for each of us. We kept taking out and rearranging, but finally got it done. Whew!

    Yep peanut brittle will be heading out to KS tomorrow along with the rest of the goodies! Hope my SS like the stuff-she didn't give me a whole lot to go on, but I managed . Can't wait til the 9th. Leota hope and pray that your hubby is feeling better soon.

    Hope DH is okay and is back on the mend soon.

    I heard the jingle of bells in my driveway today and there was my SS package waiting for me. No rattles or jingles from inside. Nothing seems to be moving or breathing in there so guess it will be OK until Dec 9. Good thing I'll be gone for almost a week and won't have to look at it. Thanks to Santa, whoever you are.

    Got my package today! My husband took it away from me because I kept shaking it. He seems to think I might break something if I keep shaking it! Can't wait til Christmas......December 9. I might have to have a drink with Dreamer in the naughty corner!! I haven't looked forward to something so much as I have this. I am so glad I joined this board and the SS. You all keep me laughing and excited about quilting.
