Where's everyone at in the process?
Have you ordered or purchased yours?

Anyone having trouble finding beads? If you need help, let us know and we'll try to suggest some sites or stores!

Is anyone getting ready to ship them to me? Please try to remember to send me a message so I know to check my PO box.

I won't post one of these every week, but I know some of you said you're bad at deadlines and since I gave a large window to order and ship, I wanted to give a little reminder. I'll do another before the ship date (September 23rd)

I've ordered mine and I'm just waiting for them to come in the mail!

Mine came in last Thursday, they are much smaller than what I had anticipated though. Not the teeny tiny seed size or anything, just smaller than I was hoping for. Oh well! I will be shipping them to you within the next week or so.

Any sites would be greatly appreciated. I prefer online shopping and will probably have them shipped directly to you. I've been looking at a few sites already, but would love more options.

What size is everyone getting? I tend to shop online, too, and they tell you the size in mm, but I've no idea how big or small this is IRL.

I'm glad you posted this reminder!

Mine are 6mm and they are pretty small. I hope they work because they are just too cute and really have a pretty special meaning.

I ordered from Amazon. I think they had a really nice selection!

The beads that I got are shipwreck. I'm glad someone has heard of them! I paid like $23.00 with shipping and everything. I didn't think it was that bad!

Mine are ordered and are on their way. Hopefully be here by Monday.

Red birds, mine said they are 10mm. It sounds like a good size to me, but we'll see when they get here.

So what size did everyone end up buying and do you think it looks big enough?

OMG!!! I just spent 4 hours scouring through websites for beads and I found one site at the end off of Ebay, no less, that had 4 kinds of beads I liked and could identify with (I found a TON of beautiful beads, but I was on a mission!) JUST as I was about to buy one bead, another bead caught my eye and that was IT! So, I just ordered it and it is supposed to get here by the 18th and I'll ship it off to you right away I am going to read the directions again, but just to clarify, do we need to include 20 copies of little notes as to why the bead was chosen by us, or do we just send you a note and you'll put all the notes together on one sheet and print the sheet out to send to us? I can do either way and want it to be least work for you!

OH, and the beads I ordered are 9x10mm. I think Kendal (can't remember exactly who it was, TBH) posted that she ordered the 6mm and they seemed a *little* small (altough all sizes will look great for a project!) so when I saw the size on this, I thought they should be OK.
