Please forgive this flighty brain,
who sent your package with the wrong address.
It came back undeliverable,
Oh, good grief, what a mess!
It's on it's way, I checked it twice,
no more mistakes, actually I checked it thrice.
Dear Recipient,
please fret no longer,
your package will arrive,
no matter *ell or high water.


A second attempt all the way East to..................New York!


I've been sweating that exact scenario! :rotfl: But I know my recipient is on a trip and I won't know if she got it until....later. I'm sure your bookmark is worth the wait! It happens to the best of us. :flower:

Oh, Nina! You can't imagine how mortified I felt to have the package come back. And here I was watching the posts in expectation of an acknowledgement that the package arrived. But so far, so good.

I got a wonderful handmade bookmark in the mail from MaggieM today. It has been in my mailbox but I have been out of the country for 10 days so I just got it. I will post a pic tomorrow but wanted to say THANK YOU! It is lovely and I love it!

All I can say is...WOW! :teehee: I received my bookmark today and was so touched by the lovely card and very thoughtful gift from none other than my West coast OBC friend, Yolie. Thanks a bunch Yolie! I love how you used the DIA theme and the bookmark is a beautiful amber color. The card was one of those pretty specialty-types with glitter and very beautiful dragonflies on the cover. Inside was a very nice sentiment and lovely words (great handwriting, I might add!). It was well worth the wait!
Here are my pics of the great gift:

Thanks all for your kind words about the bookmark I made.
But really.. I think the one I received is beautiful. Thank you Laura.. not sure of your screen name. I should have grabbed a camera before I tore into my packages... everything was wrapped seperately! I had curious onlookers peering over my shoulder wondering what sort of treasures I had mailed to me. 3 little packages with curly ribbon!! Fun Fun Fun!
It even came with two soaps made by Nina- one is a lemongrass scent and the other is cinnamon/orange. So I should say thanks to you both. I had to wait to use them until I snapped the photo... but tomorrow they are mine!

Heres the photo. :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:


p.s. Anyone else already thinking about what they are going to do for the next one?? I am!

Maggie, we will come up with something fun, I'm sure! And I am always open to suggestions so if there is something you want to see or have a thought on a swap, pm me!

Just so you know Laura's screen name is Laura - she is the founder of this great site, and a very good friend of mine too!
