Thanks Michelle! Fisher is still at home today. Fisher's little eyes were swollen shut this morning! Forest looked better and Briana was feeling better too.

My flowers are finished and you can see them in my gallery. I used to know how to import them to a post, but looks like sb.com changed the directions. If someone can tell me how to go back and embed them, I'll do so.

I'm glad you like them. I just had to package them like store-bought flowers. Lots of fun doing this, but I got to thinking you may have problems sending them back out with the extra bulk and weight. Do you feel it will be a problem?

JCI...Just Kidding... I'VE GONE POSTAL!!! PHEW!! How long did that take??? I've had the flowers addressed a bag and when I went to pack it the bag was too small! I went out bought another one and that one was still too small!! Then I received my rewards goodies from C and saw the box...AHHHHA! Tried it and that one was Perfect! Strange, I vaguely remember a story like this?


Anyway!! It is on it's way and should be there latest Friday no later then Saturday!

The return address label (wait till you see the mess I made at the P.O! ) and the stamps are stapled to the back of your address on the box.

There is 5.75 in stamps to cover return flowers!

Toodle Pip and I will try to check in more often!

OH Big P.S. You need to have another swap because I have two cushion bags here with your address already on them. 8)

Hello ladies! I hope that everyone is having a great Friday! I just got my power back on a few hours ago. We had a tornado come through our little town last night and it messed up some power lines and things. We are all safe, though.

Maryann, I got you flowers today. They are all so pretty! Thanks for the extra little goodies! It was so sweet of you!

I certainly hope that everyone has gotten their packages by now. I'm signing off of this thread. If there are any problems, just send me a PM. Thanks to all of you ladies for making this a successful swap!!
