I'm wondering if I'll be able to do this... Since I'm in Canada my 'postage paid' envelope that I will include with my beads will have Canadian postage on it... Not sure if that will fly with USPS! I'll try to look into it... Does anyone have any insight into how that would work?

You could just include whatever it costs to send it back to you in Canada inside the envelope and then the person putting the beads together could just buy the postage and send it back to ya! I don't even know how much a stamp costs these days!

This is the list of everyone who said they will be for sure participating. If I left anyone off the list please let me know ASAP.

As it's looking right now, we have 14 people participating. That means that we will all need to buy 14 identical beads and mail them to Sarah:Marie:IVF:Mommy with an additional self addressed and postage paid envelope included.
I would think that the return envelope will need the same amount of postage on it as the one you initially send (14 beads will be sent, and 14 beads will be returned to you) But you might want to include a little extra postage - just in case. If your envelope doesn't have enough postage on it, Sarah will not be responsible for paying any extra.

Sarah:Marie:IVF:Mommy - Its up to you how you want to get your address to everyone participating. I would think that private messaging them would be the most secure.

Once Sarah gets the beads from all 14 of us, she will sort them, and mail them back out to everyone so that we will all have 1 bead from everyone. It will be up to you to make what you want with your beads.(keychain, necklace, bracelet, lanyard....) Please make sure that the 14 beads you send to Sarah are all the same, so that everyone gets the same bead from you.

I just wanted to say a Big, Big thank you to Sarah for volunteering to organize and mail out the beads!!

Also, did you all want to put a deadline on getting your beads to Sarah?
Any other suggestions?

Yay! I'm so excited! I hope this all works out! Up to you all about the deadline, just keep in mind how busy this month is for all of us. I don't want to stress out Sarah

I just want to note that since my package will be coming from Japan it may take a while to get there. It may take 3-4 weeks even, especially since it's the Christmas season. I'll get mine out ASAP, just please be patient.

I think we need to pick a mail-out deadline so they all get to her in a timely manner, especially if we have some coming from far off like Japan. I think if she recieves everything by say the middle of January then she everyone can have their beads back by the middle of February - which is enough time for even some of our ladies due at the very begining of March to make their bracelets.

Its the 2nd of December, I don't think it should take more then 2 weeks for everyone to get a hold of some beads - even if you don't live in a city. So maybe everyone should have their beads mailed before the 17th?

No, nothing specific. Just pick out any bead you decide is cute


I agree that getting all the beads to Sarah by the middle of Jan. sounds like a good idea. That should give everyone plenty of time.

I'll go shopping today! I noticed on one of the other boards, awhile back, the ladies shared a reason as to why they chose each bead (blue beads because they're having a boy, a bead with a bear because their from California, one with a fake birthstone for the month the babies are due and so on).

If any of you have a reason close to your heart for your bead choice, I'd love to hear it! Makes the connection across the world a little bit closer

Ladies, I'm very sorry to do this but I'm gonna have to opt out of this. I asked about costs etc at the post office yesterday and its going to be pretty expensive for me to send out the beads and pay for return postage etc. Then theres the nightmare with customs in both the UK and US. I'm very sorry.. I wouldve loved to participate

Unfortunately I am going to have to back out. Money is very tight around here, especially since I will be out of work till who knows when. I'm so sorry. This seemed like so much fun

Here is the most recently updated list of who is participating.

Sarah: are you still up for volunteering to receive and sort the beads? If so, can you please get your address to the ladies on this list? Thanks so much!! (and if not, no biggie. Just let us know either way!)
