Who do you think you are? Luis?! ...lawl!! ;P

The deadline was extended, so... you'll be cutting it close, but you should still make it!! :D

It all depends how much postage is for that type of shipping.

Out of curiosity, is there more point in sending the card as registered mail or normal?
The fee for a normal letter should be 0.6 EU while the registered letter costs 1.5EU to send.

Yes. Yes it did. That's what you get for being part of the European Union. Now did you learn your lesson?

joke!

Sent my 3 cards off today - should be there in 3-5 business days... Cutting it really close; maybe I should have paid for priority shipping? o_o Included stamps on the inner envelopes good for 1st class shipping within mainland US. If they are going outside the US, you'll have to add extra postage (sorry Renae)!

Mailed. Postage was 44 cents, I hope.

If not, it's gonna be a drag to ride down to the postage office to pay.


Thanks aplenty to Phobotech for the great user icon.

Hopefully whoever is lucky enough to get yours will be kind enough to take a picture, or even scan it for you and post it in here! :p

Sent my two today!

I made mine with coloured pencils and a black pen! I just drew it all in lead pencil then went over the outlines then coloured it all in. I posted mine for $2.20 AUD. Hopefully I put all the stamps on correctly.

Has everyone finished their cards and sent them off, then?

Wow, Estonia! Yeah, no idea how long that will take. Did your post office give you any kind of time estimate? Everytime I think of Estonia, I think of that Pauly Shore film, "Encino Man" (aka California Man). Uh - it was made in 1992, so the reference might be lost on youngins... Meh

*mumbles and wanders off*

Eh, I never had the thought of asking for a time estimate....Bollocks

Hah, but I got the reference. I remember when the film was first on TV. We have a kid in class whose family name is Link so you can imagine that fun was had...

Won't happen. Renaenae's taken precautions against that by getting a PO Box.

But what if Renaenae is a stalker?

Then she's a genius because she'll have gotten everyone's addresses. Although I think it would be a bit of a pain to stalk people outside of the US, and especially people overseas.

But if she comes to visit, I'll invite her in for a cup of tea

Guess I'm too late even though I had it all planned out.
I need to stop overbooking myself with projects.

Next time, I'll do one.

Quick update:

We ended up with 21 participants, including me ...about what I expected.

I've only sent out cards to those I've received cards from.
So, if I've gotten a card from you, one has been sent to you.
If I haven't received a card from you, nothing has been sent to yet.

If I reword it enough times, maybe I'll understand what I'm trying to say :P

I have NOT gotten cards from:
1381461
1713539
1771440
2295827
2337653
2556449
2642380
2683307
7561500

...guess that extension was a bad idea, huh?

Once you get your card/s, feel free to post pics ...or let the sender know so they can post.

Thanks to everyone that participated or expressed interest. Hopefully the Valentine's Day Exchange will have a bigger turn out! I plan on starting it REALLY EARLY! (lesson learned) lol

Thanks Renae! I think I might actually start on my V-day card pretty soon. Bet you can guess who I'll be sending it to. *cough*

Whoever gets my card, if you don't have a scanner, I've already scanned my card, so I can post it if you cant.
