Flying Charm Packs Everywhere!

head-full-of-squares2 thinking of swapsWe now have 984 little packets of PSQ charms ready to mail, or in the mail. This is the moment I enjoy the most. Once the matches are all made and sent out, I envision all the participants sending their little parcels out into the world. I see the postal workers sorting them, the parcels being put on to airplanes, and I imagine all the swappers and Newbies opening and sorting through their new treasures.

Getting to this moment I always hit a wall somewhere and say “never again.” But then I see the happiness that this little packets give, and I remained HOOKED!

If you do not hear from your partners instantly, give it a little time. People have lives, catch colds, and just plain get busy. Feel free to nudge them after a few days. If you email me with a problem to resolve, I will, but not until after work that day.

Next round: Sign up will be September 16-23, 2015. Find a friend to join! And start cutting.

P.S.: People ask if they can send me something for my efforts, and the answer is decidedly NO, please! I am trying to purge 35 years of stuff from my house, I am dieting, and I BADLY need to downsize my stash by a ton! The best thing YOU can do is get a friend to join next round, and find more Newbies! – Mary
