Whoever is standing in line behind me tomorrow at the post office is going to be one unhappy camper. I swapped out the puzzle pieces and have them labeled,packed,and in a bag ready to head off in the morning.
Some of you will have an IOU for a puzzle piece from me. I have started working on them today and will ship them off as I finish. I hope that is ok. I didn't want to hold up your other pieces, so I will just ship mine separately.
I found a way to swap out the pieces fairly. First I set aside the swappers who definitely wanted to swap with me. I then swapped one of mine with theirs until I was out. Next I made piles of pieces according to names and turned them upside down. Then I chose 4 pieces from random piles until all were gone. I checked to make sure the pieces tagged for certain people were swapped correctly. Finally, the not so fun part, addressing envelopes and filling out custom forms. I am really sick of writing my name by now, but so happy I am finished.
These will ALL be mailed in the morning. Thanks for your patience, your kind gifts, and for playing along in the Pieces of Friendship swap #1.
I will post info in the Fall for the next round for those interested.
