I have mailed mine and Alysia's ornaments out to their people. And because I am awesome :tongue: I have included Christmas cards!

Also, because Dawn was kind enough to give me my calendar exchange name early, I have mailed that as well :yes:

I haven't seen anything as nice as required yet but I'm going to a christmas craft fair on saturday so hopefully will pick up an ornament there.

And I'm sorting out the calendar exchange names this week when I get a chance.

Don't worry yet Tracy. My PO told me it takes 7-10 days to reach across the pond plus we had a holiday on Nov 11th so that probably delayed it a bit.

I mailed 3 packages on the same day. 2 have been received, the other no news :unsure: so I hope it's there soon.

This was my first time - is it meant to be for the tree??? Oh no, I didn't realise I just thought it was any ornament - gosh John, if you hung that on your tree the branch would snap :yes:

I loved it though so I hope you liked it
