Choo Chooo!! The Train Rolls again!

Here is the order for the next train.

catwmn00079-Aja
spottedjagiwar-Zene
~Mel~-Mel
avalon321-Shannon
tialee-Tialee
K9Trainer-Carrie
mommymish-Michelle
jd6405-Jess
wiltedrose314-Beckie
LMCH-Lauren
mommy2007-Brittany
heathera212-Heather
madisonsmom07-Lisa
MinaAriel-Nancy
mnbarmy-Meg
sadieruth-Sadie
mujul79-name?
mommyCB-Charys

I will mail it first thing in the morning to Aja. Smile

Some rules to remember:

Do not send train Media Mail or Book rate. This will just delay the train from arriving to the next participant and thereby delay the train for everyone. Thank you!

Please do not include paper scraps or paper in this train. A paper train has been started for this purpose and this will help keep shipping costs down.

Try to have it out within 3 business days of receiving the package, so it moves along at a good pace. Smile If you wish to be removed from the train at any time, please PM me and I will do so ASAP. I will be PM'ing everyone the addresses to the next person in line after them.

In order to participate, you must stay an active member of this board (atleast one post/week, have 50 total posts on this board and have atleast 300 overall posts on PO.)

THANKS and let's have fun! We can gain some great items, as well as help clear out those we don't need/haven't used in a while.

I just reorganized my scrap/craft space, so hopefully next I can sort through and find what I want to put in the train. I kind of was checking stuff out as I reorganized and keeping the train in mind...I am excited!

when it came in! look at all that stuff!

what I took.

the san francisco goodies were perfect!!! I've yet to scrap any of those pics, but can't wait to use them!

what I added

I wish i could've added more, but my supplies are getting slim. Esp. since I mainly use my Cricut for everything and haven't bought anything in a long time.

Its funny Charys cause we each took something from each other Lol

DH mailed the train today and complained about how much it cost Wink He said "DO you know how much paper you could have gotten for that much!" And I said ITS FUN that's the point! Lol I showed him Wink

I think I got the train today. Didn't notice the box sitting by the front door until I was leaving for work, so didn't get a chance to take a look at it. Will let you know for sure tonight.

Oh, I found more stuff that I can contribute to the train (of course, after I've already got the train). Now that I'm settled in and scrapping away again, I'm finding some good stuff, that I just won't use. Looking forward to the next train already. LMAO!

I did get the train yesterday! It's already sent off to the next person so Shannon, you should have by tues (wed at the absolute latest). I didn't take pictures of the mountain of loot, but I did take pics of what I took and what I added. I'll get them posted here as soon as I remember how to work my camera!

Figured it out!

Well, whoever gets the train after me is going score. Cleaning out a new space I found so much stuff. It's crazy. I could probably stock the train AND give out gifts for the next crop, and have it all be new stuff. LOL

Thanks for the update Mel!

I'm ready! I cleaned out my whole space yesterday and sorted through it. So my stuff is ready to be put in.

Question, I have some fleece squares leftover from a project. They are about 4x4. I use them to wipe finger prints off my pages before I put sleeves on. Is this anything people would be interested in? If so, I'll add a few, if not, I won't:)

I feel bad cause I definitely took out more than I put in, I hope that's okay. Sad

So what I took:

And what I added:

If I didn't participate right, I will not be offended if someone says and I won't play next time. I wasnt' sure the rules about taking and adding. I thought I had more than I did. Sorry!!

I think its just fine Carrie! I put in more than I took and I think alot of us did. If someone didnt take some of it, it would get too heavy! Im glad you got some good stuff!

ETA: Some of that stuff has been in there a LONG while so we're glad you took it Wink

yeah Carrie, you did fine! It gets so weighted down, because a lot don't take as much as they add, so it all evens out. Glad you found some stuff.
