Thank you everyone for responding so quickly in getting your names and addresses to me!!! I still, however, have two friends who have not emailed me their addresses:
Debbie Keady: "My Sparrows Nest" / Victorian Photo Album
Vinette: "emailed " / Runner Up gift!
If anyone knows these ladies, please let them know I would like to get their packages out to them before I go on vacation.
This has been an enjoyable experience! I have really liked making the items but the best part is they will have wonderful homes. (Sorry but I did not make the gift for Sheila E. I found this lovely item and thought she would enjoy it, even though it was not designed by me.)
The packages are all different, as are the gifts. It will be interesting to go to the post office tomorrow. I am wondering what they will think of the Victorian influence of the packaging??
I just pray no one takes them. I had a package stolen by a UPS driver one Christmas and have not been able to send UPS since. It was a signed NASCAR picture of twelve drivers & I paid alot of money for it to give to my son. When the package came it was in a damaged tube. Inside were the collectors car & the expensive poster. Emphasis on were. It had been opened and my hubby asked the driver where the car was that came with the poster that was inside. The UPS driver said "Oh, I must report this, I will be right back" SURE! He went to his truck to make out the report so my hubby said he would take the poster & they could find the car . The driver said he must take it back to the headquarters and would return the poster later in the day. SURE! After we waited all day we called the headquarters and they said there was NO poster or car in the tube. Well, we knew better & argued the point but they never got back with us. UPS paid the original owner for the collectibles & they returned our money but it ruined our Christmas surprise for my son. So you can see why I am always leery of sending anything through the post. Ya' never know.
I will be sending the packages that I can tomorrow by snail mail but it will get there because I will have my angels guiding the way.
Have a great Tuesday! I have so much to do. I gotta' go.....
I am thanking the Lord for each one of you..
