The time has finally come.
The exchange will be over at the end of the month,
but with some of the concerns about packages taking so long to mail,
I decided it was time to put my beads in the mail to Irene.
Since the beads I made were hollow beads.
They also had fins and tails,
all of which could be broken without good packing,
I had to be very careful.
I lined the bottom of the box with bubble wrap,
then I wrapped each bead.
One bead is going to be sent to Beads of Courage.
I found a small box for each bead.
I lined each box with bubble wrap.
I added a business card,
then I wrapped each package with more bubble wrap.
I added one more layer of bubble wrap to the top of the box.
Now if those beads don't get there safely and unbroken, I don't know what I'll do!
The box you see is the box that will be returned to me.
I have to go to the post office and have postage put on the inside box and the outside envelope!
I don't mind! It's all part of the exchange!
This is the box that will be mailed back to me with my trade beads.
It's a beach theme!
I'm anxious to see them.
I'm mailing the box and the beads in an envelope!
I can hardly wait!
