Our Canada Post is in strike position and talking about locking out the workers on Friday...this could affect how long it takes for my Box to get to me Lana. I'm not worried,,just will take time.

That's a bummer p.a. Hope things will work out and there won't be a lock out.

I'm sure the strike will be over before Christmas. No worry I do not think anyone is in a big hurry.

What is the estimated shipping date? I am going out of town so if it's when I'm gone I want my neighbor to be on the look out for it

Shannon, I am very sorry but do not know. Over the week-end I was messaged that the last box is in the mail to me. I have just packed everything in boxes and waiting for the other box so I can put that package in and ship them out.

Can't wait to see what is in all the pretty packages!!!!

I got the last box today and as I am typing Allen is taping up the boxes for me to mail on my lunch tom..

Any money due to you I will send back in a different envelope. Since I am doing it at a different post office I won't have them wait on me to put it in and tape it up. At my post office I would go and weigh them and then bring them home and tape it up.

Lana- I don't need any money back, please don't worry about that for me. It was a minimal amount to begin with. Thank you for doing this!

All the boxes were mailed out at lunch time. The expected delivery date on them all said Monday July 11th with the exception being Patti in Canada. It gave no expected date for it.

I will be sending refunds out tom.. Everybody but one person will get money back. I try to send everybodys back in about the same size box so the cost is about the same for all. Price goes by location too. If you send a smaller box by the time I put all 9 ornaments together I may have to go bigger at times.

One person sent 1 to many ornaments so will be receiving one of theirs back and another sent 1 short so Michelle will not receive that one. Michelle will be so excited to get an unexpected box!

It was no problem doing it with Allen down, besides I took them to mail and not him! lol

The box that arrived later she was very appreciated that everybody waited on her. Thank you!

Thank you all for joining and can't wait to see what we got! I will open mine after I know you have all received yours!!!!!!!

REMEMBER NO MATTER THE SIZE OF CHECK YOU GET BACK----CASH IT, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
