Important February Swap Update!

February's Parisian Beauty swap
has been unavoidably delayed.

Three swap packages
(which were all mailed by the deadline)
have yet to reach me.
Dear Liz mailed her beautiful ATCs
from England 3 1/2 weeks ago,
my heart breaks for Susanne's
gorgeous ATCs
(she shared a photo of them with me)
this was to be her first swap,
I am always so happy when Amy
finds the time to join one of my swaps,
her work never disappoints.

If any of you happened to have tracking on your package,
please check it and let me know
anything you find out.

I have been thinking long and hard 
about how to proceed with the swap returns.
I have decided to
swap out everything I have
tomorrow afternoon,
and they will go out Tuesday morning.

I am hoping that the 3 missing swaps will show up soon,
and I will be able to swap them out among each other,
or with some of the extras I have received.

In the 3 or 4 years that I have been hosting swaps,
this is a first,
nothing has ever gotten lost before,
let alone 3 at the same time.
I can only assume that it is weather related,
shame, shame shame USPS.

I am so very sorry that this happened,
I would be happy to entertain different solutions
from our swappers,
please just leave a comment here.

My little giveaway ends tomorrow
(click the button at the top right),
sign-ups are open for 
March's Swap
(right sidebar too)

Kim Dear I am happy to wait longer to receive Parisian Beauty ATCs. Whatever you need to do is quite fine with me. So sad for Liz, Amy and Susanne and for everyone swapping. I hope this new crazy normal is not going to continue. Blessings dear...

Unknown said...!!! i just tracked mine and it says that it left Baton Rouge, LA Feb 12....."STILL IN TRANSIT TO ITS DESTINATION" i am so sorry this happened!! my brother lives in Virginia and his kids have been out of school for nearly 2 weeks and he has a hard time getting to work in D.C. guess the weather 'won' this round!! But i was honored to be included anyway!

Thanks for keeping us posted. I can totally understand, no doubt most could be weather related because of all the storms etc. Our Post Office has issues, revamped our distribution area and things haven't been the same since.
I don't mind waiting, but hope they at least arrive in your mailbox !

I'm happy to wait a little longer, if you want to give the three (wow!) missing packages a little extra time. Fingers crossed they're not lost forever.

Unknown said...

I would be happy to wait too!

I'd totally blame it on the postal service. I mailed something a couple weeks ago, that was traveling 6 blocks, and it took 4 days to get there. I do hope they get to you soon.

The thought of a swap being lost is always my first thought when I drop it into the box --- I hate that they are going through that right now.
I'm sure you'll come up with a great plan. Feel free to hold onto mine if that helps the swapping go easier.

Oh dear, so I am not the only one. It is such a shame, but it is just one of those things we have no control over. Go ahead with swapping out the ones that made it to you. Maybe, just maybe the three missing ones will turn up one of these days and can then be swapped. It won't put me off entering Kim's wonderful swaps in the future. Having said that, I don't think I can take part in the current one, too many health issues right now preventing me to do much crafting. But there is always the next one :-).
Don't fret, Kimberly, you are such a wonderful swap hostess! Hugs xxx
