Postage-Themed Linen

How cute is this linen fabric with a vintage postage print? Sadly it's no longer available, but I did notice other postage-themed items on the same site! Have a look at Stefanie Style on Etsy for more goodness.

Thanks so much to BPS member Karyn for forwarding this to me!

December Mailing

The December mailing addresses were sent out last night, a little early to give everyone time to do something a bit special for this holiday month. If you haven't received your address by Monday, November 30 (not forgetting to check your spam folder first!), please let me know right away.

P.S. Because of the problems we had with the November mailing, some of the postcards for that month will be late arriving to their destinations — mostly because a few members didn't get their addresses for mailing until mid-month. Please note — because we are unable to track which addresses were received by you and which weren't, it's really important that you let us know as soon as possible if you didn't get your address! Just remember that we always mail out the addresses a couple of days or so before the first of the month, so if it's not there by the first, then do follow up.

Thanks as always and happy mailing!

It's Oh So Quiet ...

If you've been wondering where I've been lately, I've been having major computer issues on and off over the last three weeks, which has meant that I've been unable to either post here or check and respond to your emails on a regular basis. The end result is that my old computer finally quit for good and I now have a lovely new iMac (so happy!) and am back in business again. It does mean that I'll be a while catching up on things, though, but rest assured that I'm reading each and every email I receive, even if I'm a little slow getting back to you.

Hope you're all well — and the best to you in the week ahead, too.

What's New

I've finally had the time (and the working computer) to upload new photos to the BPS Flickr pool! Have a look to see what's new here.

Incidentally, if you've emailed me within the last week or so and I haven't yet responded, email me again. I'm still catching up from the computer meltdown last week, and it's quite possible your email has disappeared into the gi-normous backlog of messages that I'm still working through!

Thanks again all. One more thing — a moment of silence for Remembrance Day today, too.

Checking In

Thanks to everyone again for your patience while we've been figuring out what the problem was for the November address mailing — it seems to have been a Gmail issue as far as we can tell. Again, check your spam folder first if you still haven't received your address — if it's not there, let me know (ASAP)!

I'm also still catching up on things after my computer crash last week, so I'll be a little longer getting your lovely photos for the BPS Flickr pool uploaded, too. Soon!

Thanks all!

BPS Café — November 2009

If you've received a November postcard from a sender who prefers to remain tantalizingly mysterious, you can still say thank you! Members can leave a comment here to let other members know how much they appreciate the postcard they've received.

Note: If you've just received your October postcard and would like to thank the sender, you can still leave a comment in the October BPS Café post! For earlier postcards that have finally arrived, please check out the quick links to the appropriate BPS Café in the Related Links section on the right.

November Mailing Update

I've received quite a few emails in the last couple of days about members not receiving their address for the November mailing. We're resending addresses as needed, but in the meantime be sure to check your spam folder in your mail first, as a lot of them seem to have ended up in there! Thanks again, all!

One other thing -- my computer is in the shop at the moment, so I may be slow responding to you over the next couple of days. Thanks for your patience!

Hope you're having a great weekend — and thanks again!
