Scrabook Train

Starting this thread to get sign ups and explain a few rules about how our train works. It is a fun way to get some "new" stuff and get rid of some of your stuff. The rules are simple and as follows:

1. The box comes to your house through mail...this is the FUN part!! You go through it and take out what may be of interest to you. You then add what scrap supplies you have that you think someone else might like. When you are done, you post on the train thread that you are done and then I PM you the address for the next person. Fun, Fun!!

2. We mail the train through regular mail, or preferrably priority mail. It may even be smart to do delivery confirmation, it's only like .30 cents extra. This way we know who has it and when. Smile We don't mail media mail or a book rate. I think shipping for me last time was around 9 or 10.00 So please consider this before signing up.

3. We put most things we don't want in the box EXCEPT for paper. Paper gets very heavy and causes postage to go way up.

4. We really want to see you only keep the box for 3 business days. This helps to keep it moving along at a nice pace. If you want to be removed from the train, you just have to let me know, no problem.

5. In order to participate, you must be an active member of this board (which means at least one post/week, 50 total posts on board, and have at least 300 posts with PO).

I think that's it. If there's anything I've forgotten, please let me know. Once we are all signed up, I will start another thread with the order box will go out and then get it mailed. Yahoo

also it's geographical order to minimize shipping.

I'm not sure if I'm doing it or not, I'll keep you posted.

I'm in!! I found lots of stuff that I'll never use when I switched my rooms around.

Can I be in the front/middle. If everything goes according to plan we should be moving in late March and everything will be packed.

I'm in, as long as I can be towards the very last. Cohen will be here any week and I'll be dealing with a newborn, so if I'm the last that would work best.

Question - I don't want the box to come to me but I found some of my old scrapping supplies in the closet that I can contribute. They are not 'new' though (ie some letters missing from stickers, etc) - does the stuff have to be new?

No it does not need to be new Trina. You can absolutely contribute.

Bumping for any additional signups.

Okay, I'll give this to the end of the weekend for any additional signups. Then I'll work on it next week to get some kind of geographical order to it. Sounds like more are worried about time of getting it as opposed to order of where you live though yes?

Here is what was in the box!

This is what I took!

And here is what I put in!

I'm so glad to get rid of the scissors! I can't use them to save my life Wink
