Karmax3 said she will remake the letters for the groups she's in, she just needs addresses. So if that's the route you want to go then PM her. (I will probably just go ahead and make my own-might be less of a headache for some). Heather has been overwhelmed with letters while trying to recover from surgery so I believe she is turning the swapping over to Toni. I apologize for all the troubles this swap has had. I think the end result is to have less # of words in the future and to be cautious when co-hosting.

Please pray for quick healing for Heather. I feel bad that she had to deal with all these packages, letters and everything while trying to recuperate after surgery. She is NOT by any means a flaker, and is still a great hostess. Toni will get these swapped out and have them out to you soon. I think Karma's package is MIA, she was only in a few groups. I apologize for all the confusion but I think right now the main objective is to get the letters that arrived swapped out. If there are any missing, I don't mind having to make a few of my own if it means getting this swapped wrapped up for the benefit of everyone. Hopefully most of you won't mind either. And in the Winter/Holiday round there will be some changes so that things don't get too overwhelming for us all. Hopefully most of you will still be willing to swap with me and Toni!

I've swapped with Heather many times and I know she's always very prompt and on-the-ball...I know she's not a flaker. I'm willing to wait a bit longer...these lotw swaps are worth it.

And I'll still be game for the next round.

I've been preaching this in every LOTW swap...LOTWs are SO hard. It is very important to know what you are getting your self into and who you are dealing with in your swaps.

From my personal experience as a hostess, the more words, the harder the swapping process (that is a given) Also, the more words, the more people = the more flakers/problems.

I have done so many of these and even though it is exciting and folks are signing up and eager to get to work...it NEVER fails, something happens and it causes MAJOR stress on the hostess.

In addition to limiting and having a set amount of words (I recommend no more than maybe 20 MAX), you can also shorten the turn around time (to lets say 4 weeks) If you have TOO much time to disappear, then that is exactly what will happen. Also, if folks don't send then, as a hostess, I would either make the letters (a nice, neat generic version) or just send what you have back. I would rather have to make one letter than to wait on someone who probably didn't send or won't send.

You can also have folks check in and if they disappear, then reassign their letters.

This is going to be my last one this year. Probably last swap for the year as well. I wish you all good luck in all the upcoming swaps! Can't wait to get these back...I have a mini album that is imcomplete without these so I will be anxiously waiting!

Erin dont worry.. its just a shame that people sign up for stuff and dont follow through.. thats why we all have to warn each other if a "flaker" signs up for the swap.

Im not worried.. I asked heather to hold my letters to send back with 2 other swaps.

Ladies they are all postal some went out yesterday the rest just went out. Now ladies there were some missing letters I was going to make them but it was just to many and I did not want to hold this up any more.

This was hard because it went through 3 hands the next one will only go thorough one set of hands. I hope you all will join in the next one with us. I really love this swap!! It will be better next time round. Any one have an issue please let me know.

I have been swapping with Heather for a year and never had a problem. I am amazed she tried to do this swap so close to her surgery. She needs more time to heal. The surgery she had was very hard on her mentally and physically. She is a wonderful hostess!!! I for one will continue to swap with her!!!!!!!!!! She is in NO WAY A FLAKER!!!!!!!

Toni... I had asked Heather to send my with a DC and let me know if I needed to send more money.
By any chance, did you include a DC on my package.
If so, Do I owe you more money?

Were the extra letters sent back to us as well?

Whewwwww Ladies they are all in the MAIL!!!!! You ladies did some beautiful work!! I enjoyed looking at all the letters. The photos do not do the letters justice. Next time I have to have a letter in each word just so I can keep a set they were so pretty. I know you will enjoy them when you receive them. The Bridal were so beautiful. Love the work put into each letter.

YAY! Thank you Toni and Heather for helping through this. I'm taking Henva's, Marsha's and Heather's advice for the next round= less words! I will wait until next week to open the other round. Hopefully packages will start to come in by then. The next round won't be due until mid January so the holidays won't get in the way too much. Thanks again for everyone who helped and was patient throughout the whole process!!

No one that I know of said she was, but she felt bad having to pass the letters to Toni because of her health. But we all know that a person's health, well-being, life and family come before any of the swapping. Heather just mentioned to Toni and I that she didn't want anyone to think of her as flaking and we are just confirming and want others to know that she is not considered a flaker in any of this.

U - Autumn

F & A - Football
P & I - Pumpkin (2 I's)
W - Halloween
I & D - Hayride

Thanks for the great letters ladies

Yay. Glad words are being received. Thanks for letting us know of extra letters Squirmy'sMom. That may be helpful. I know it was difficult for Heather and Toni to keep track of some due to not having some full words, and I think some letters were duplicated and some bags weren't labelled properly. All which are things that make the swapping confusing. If I have extras, I will be willing to mail those to anyone that may need them too. I'm just happy that you ladies are starting to receive your items

I also got 2 sets of School group 1 and none of group 2. If anyone got group 2 instead of their group and wants to trade it with me, let me know...otherwise I'm fine with these two as I was giving them to a friend who makes duplicate books for her young girls, so them being the same wouldn't matter.

I sent back extra letters to you of words that were missing letters. I thnik everyone will end up with extra letters. Some one asked if I was sending back the extras so I made sure to send them back.

I will msg both of you I got 4 of the same group so if anyone has 2 of the same and wants a different one I will have another one that I will swap, I also got somethings that were wrong on mine but I don't have the list with me I got themon sat but just finally had time to go threw them this is what I know for sure I have

I have 2 words that I have a whole extra set, I think it was pumpkin and spooky

boo-I got someone elses instead of mine I didn't make any of the letters in the set but if someone don't want to mess with switching it is fine I have 2 different sets so I am fine either way

boo- I have 2 b's (one I made and one someone else made) and no o so if someone has 3 o's and no b I have it, if not I will make a o

haunted-I have an extra n I have the whole word so either someone is missing it or I made an extra

I am missing g-groom and n-thankful( I made this one so I can make another no problem)

I think there is others but I don't have the list with me right now

I am fine with what I have if noone wants to hassle with it but will send extras and/or switch 2.....I am just happy to get them back, I really like these swaps tyvm for hosting

I was in 2 school groups, but got back the same letters. However, one group is incomplete, so I don't know if that will help.

Got my letters...they look great! I, too, got back incomplete words or extra letters, but I can fix that easily!

I will be posting some of the completed groups on my blog. If you aren't already following me and wouldn't mind, please do! I am currently running a "contest" where all you have to do is comment to be entered. The more comments, the more RAKs I will give out.

See you ladies around...taking a break to plan my wedding. Its been a pleasure swapping with everyone!

Ok, glad these are being received. Thanks everyone for hanging with us through all this. I think I have the first page updated for who has received letters back. I think just Penny, Linda, Marmalene, Susie J and myself are the only ones left waiting. So I will see what sets I have and let you know if I can swap a letter or set with anyone.

*** I will get the new LOTW round up either tonight or tomorrow***

Ok ladies. Since this swap is wrapping up, I have opened the new swap. I updated the lists/rules so that hopefully it's more clear to new comers. I also made a SIZE REQUIREMENT CHANGE for longer words (I hope it will help some of the longer words fit onto layouts better). So take a look at that if you join. Hope to see you over there.

Awesome Susie and Penny. Glad you got them. The other swap is open if you want more LOTW. I think this one will go smoother and it's not due until after the Holidays.

I'm still waiting on mine but hopefully they will arrive soon. I haven't gotten the mail yet today so maybe they're in my mailbox.

Off to update the front......

Well I've PMed Linda and Marmalene, they never got back to me. I hope they received their letters. I assume that if they didn't, they would have contacted me. I'm still waiting on mine but Toni did mail them, so they will either show up or be MIA. Anyway, I'm going to close this out next week. So if anyone has anything else to post or ask, now would be the time
