I just wanted to let all the Giveaway prize winners know that your goodies are on the road. The angels are in the air w/ a little help from the U.S.Postal Services as we speak!
Because the angels were long sitting on their dowels, I had a heck of a time finding boxes to send them. Hubby brought home some boxes which was considerate and thoughtful, and they would have fit ....if.... I were sending patio furniture!
Then I went to the local florist thinking the boxes that they send roses in would be perfect, and they were...IF .... I wanted to spend $3.75 per box! for a box WITHOUT the roses!
Then my sweet and very patient spouse literally emptied unopened parts at his job just so Id have the right size...and they would be...IF.... I were sending 3 peas in a pod! Finally he measured them and low and behold...came home with PERFECT size boxes. Thank you Honey.
I looked around thinking Id have the company of a couple, bears in my dining room, some broken furniture.... and a tired blonde goin thru my stuff while complaining ... that this is too small.... too big...ahhhh just right!
So because there were a variety of sizes, costs, and arrival times, I couldnt keep track and at that point just wanted them out of my hands and in the air.... SOOOO with in the next 3-6 days everyone should be very happy. I have the confirmation info so if someone doesnt recieve theirs within that time frame, please email me and Ill be happy to look into it.
I want to thank everyone for their patience. I really didnt think the shipping would be an issue but I had the pillow which was large, the doll, and 5 angels going out.
I had 3 angel winners, but wanted to at the very least send one to my wonderful friend Robin who so generously featured me on her blog. Thank you again so much Robin. after all, if it werent for you, I wouldnt have met most of you, so it was the very least I could do to express my gratitude.
Then I mailed out a couple of goodies to cheer a friend up who is finally on the road to recovery after being very ill, frustrated from being sick, and a little blue...& the dang box came back last week with a statement saying I had inellegible handwritting... OOOHHH..... would Mrs. Patsy my 2nd grade teacher be rippin mad at me if she ever knew that! so back to the post office with O.C.D.Monk like handwritting. Didnt want that to cost me a '3nd' time...geeze Louise....
Then I just found out my sweet buddy "Curds N Whey" Cookie offered to wait for her prize knowing shippping would be...well shipping...am I blessed or what? Not that it would ever be an option but she sho did put a lump in my throat knowing Ive got such understanding friends. Thank you.
Im sorry I wasnt able to mail them out sooner, but thats why I did send all of you a private email alerting you that it might be as late as this week before I could get them out.
I heard patience was a virute!!!! Thanks you guys. I also said a little prayer for them to be delivered perhaps on a day when one of you could really use a surprize or goodie to lift you & land in your life at the perfect time, I sure hope its mine!. I just love it when that happens!
I sure would appreciate it if we could keep another friend of mine...of ours, Peanut from Countryfolk Keepsakes in our prayers. Shes sufferin sumpthin wicked from the flu thats pounded so many of us. Feel better soon Darlin... Thank you in advance...if we dont pray and support eachother...than who????
