Lost in translation...........



........or to be more specific in the Royal Mail postal system.................I can't believe that my package of 20 samples to Stamp Addicts for the new shows on C&C at 10am and 1pm tomorrow has not been delivered more than a week after it was sent by Special Delivery................and RM's records can't even tell me where it was last tracked in their system. And to add insult to injury, they can't................or should that be their intransigent system won't investigate until fifteen days after the "expected" delivery date.



And as I said the other day, I really loved making these ones and spend hours and hours on them and could have gone on forever with those gorgeous tree stamps. So the best I can do is share a few more pictures of some of those samples.




Another of the new stamp stamp is this one with arched windows and curtains which were fun to work with.



And the On the Water stamp set.



Another of the trees.

Have a good day everyone, the weathers non too bright here so it looks like some crafting will be in order after work.

  2. Same bad service here in Finland with post office. The fees get up every year (it is even cheaper to send something from Asia to Finland than from Finland to Finland!) and things get lost in their way. Crap!
    Love these cards. The blue(ish) peace-card is my definite favourite, could use it with christmas-themed text also ^^
    Hugs, Eemeli

  6. OMG how awful that your cards are somewhere en route, you must be really upset. Your samples are stunning and I am always in awe of your work. Those trees are just gorgeous aren't they, very easy to work with and so many things to make with them.
    Hope they turn up soon

  8. Your cards are beautiful!!!
    I'm sorry your cards haven't made it to their destination, I can't believe how slow the mail system is!!
    I ordered something from the US to Canada and it took 42 days!! I just about gave up on it too!
    hugs to you!

  25. Hello Brenda!

    Thanks for calling by the other day, it was lovely to have you visit!

    I do hope your package arrives in time (although I wont hold my breathe!). Its always the things you really really need to be somewhere that seems to go awry.

    I do love your beautiful blue snowy wintry tree card. Its is just perfect imo!

Living it has got to be better then writing about it?? Need a quiet month to stay in the warm and make stuff and heal my creative soul!! xx

  27. Lovely samples but what a pain the post office is. Recently my husband took a very small parcel to the PO, had it weighed and measured, paid the postage and when it got to it's destination there was an extra 22p to pay on it and then a pound to go and pick it up as they wouldn't redeliver it!! What pathetically appalling service!

    Hugs
    Brenda

  29. It seems all countries have problems with the post service. We here, in Ukraine, meet the same not pleasant situations/ You've created reaally beautiful and PEACEFUL cards - when I'm looking at them I want to get to such calm and picturesque place...

  30. Oh Brenda, Im so sorry to hear that all your samples have gone walkabouts. I really dont understand how they can "misplace" orders. Is there a big warehouse somewhere in a secret location that the parcels suddenly decide would be a better place to go?? Its completely baffling. Its got much worse too over the last couple of years. And after watching that panorama programme on bbc last year, I have lost a great deal of faith and trust in the postal service. You know its bad when special delivery items are vanishing to the parcel heaven in the skies. So sorry that its happened to you. And your cards are so stunning too. Im a very big fan of your beautiful cards. Its a shame and disgrace that they havent reached their destination. Lee x

  31. Sounds like a nightmare you must be worried for your art as well as them not getting them on time. I love the soft looks. It has been too long since we visited lol I am happy to see you and your work again missed the doggy talk too ;0)

    Love Dawn xx

  38. Your cards are stunning! Trust the post office to mess things up. I swear it was a better service when it was taken by horse and there were highway men around!

  41. OMG you must be so upset its time the royal mail sorted itself out one minute it takes a day then a week but at least you have your photos so you can show them and fab they all are Luv Sue x

  42. Oh my god Brenda that is disgusting. You pay extra to send special delivery and then you have to wait 15 days because they have been stupid and lost your parcel. You must be fuming!

    I love your cards, the second one is my favourite!! Love the look of this, the snow and the tree. All gorgeous!

  43. What a nightmare, all those samples disappearing after all your hard work. You've made me rush off and check the progress of the ones I sent off yesterday!!!
    They are all really beautiful, Brenda. I love the birds on the wires. Were these inspired by the wonderful Barbara Gray I wonder. We had a go at them too.
    Hugs Lisax

  44. The whole point of sending it special delivery is that they're supposed to know WHERE it is!!! Makes you want to strangle somebody...I had a package sent to me from the UK to the US 2 years ago...it's never gotten here. Lets hope that yours isn't with mine someplace! At least you had the fun of creating them and, thank heaven, have some lovely photos! Not that that helps out in the current situation.
    Hugs,

  48. Beautiful cards! I love the window. Those curtains are so cute.
    Hope your stamps arrive soon. It is difficult enough to wait for a parcel of stamps to arrive but then to have them lost...that's really difficult!
    Thanks for sharing! :)

  50. these are all stunning Brenda, love them x

  51. The Peace one is my favourite here. Speechless but not surprised - if only parcels could send out SOS messages or be like MACs with their own inbuilt tracing system. Hope this is resolved for you - satisfactorily is improbably but at least in compensatory terms in some measure.
