Happy Wednesday everyone! I just spent half an hour or so trying my best to set riders and route that would both mix up crew and order of stops. I think (sure hope, lol) everyone is in a different spot then you were last time. Without further ado, Sticker Train 14 Passengers are: Cheryl (CA), Sara (MI), Lisa (PA), Kim (OH), Renee (NY), Gina (NC), and Melissa (IN)

Melissa shared with me this morning that she would like this train to have a botanical theme: "Flowers, leaves, trees and gardening stickers." Perfect Spring-y choice :D Easter stickers should be easy to find right now, also. Keep in mind that any stickers are welcome, they do not have to fit into the train's theme or season. It would be fun if the majority did along with possibly the card for Melissa :) That way, too, our trains would collect different themes (Last Call Envelopes)

This Train 14 will have a Last call Train 12 envelope aboard. Please, as always, keep those stickers separate from the new cargo. I do ask that total amount of stickers never grow to more than 60 sheets. That could mean 10 last call and up to 50 new and growing. Also, I ask that we stick to half or full sheets, or at least a few rows of stickers on a sheet. No more individual loose stickers, please. I think those have a way of adding quick weight and also get lost more easily. Please let me know should any of this be cause for concern. ALWAYS, know these trains are for YOU, not about me :)

Everyone, please remember to post in this thread or PM me, if you'd prefer and I'll post, when you have both recieved and mailed off the train. This way the journey is kept active for all and we all know where the sticker train is. Thank you so much! P.S. I believe posting tracking info is no longer allowed on here, so if you want to share that with the person you sent to, PM that info to them and that would be wonderful.

Melissa, we do kindly ask that once you get your train, you go ahead and begin one of the next two. We will figure that out down the tracks. Thank you for climbing aboard once more, to, you, and all Train 14 crew, Choo Choo. Love and God Bless You! (See that even rhymed :P :)

Yippers! This last train had only a couple of individual stickers, but those were the best I must say. There were owls on a round sticker, you know those squares that have one sticker on them? Those are great, I hate to not have peeps put those in. Besides there are only ever 3 or 4.

Kimmy, I often order on Oriental Trading and get roll stickers, your example reminded me of that :) Certainly including a small number of those is fine, esepcially if they are still together, for each person to tear off. I meant to save on postage, keeping our packages as flat as possible is the way to go. I more meant a bigger batch of loose stickers of varying sizes and shapes, not all flat. Easier and clearer, to me, anyway, to say 50-60 sheets tops to grow, and know that would always mean under $4 even at the end.

I have talked though with a few of you of trying sometime either a match up or train spin off if anyone wanted to do that for anything sticky, even colored glue sticks, lol. On that type of train, folks would all know it was a package that would grow--not needing to be kept envelope rate and lower in cost. So could definitely include more foamies, puffies, google eyes, etc. For this train, I do ask that we as much as possible stick to flat. Should anyone want to do this, please go right ahead and start a new thread. I would aprpeciate keeping this thread to this train for clarity for me, lol :)

Hey guys, I recieved the sticker train on Sauturday. I hope you'll pardon my tardiness but I had to travel out of town Monday to have some teeth pulled and I'm feeling very under the weather. So, it will probably be Thursday or Friday before I can get to the post office. I promise to add some cute puffy bunny stickers to make up for the late arrival to the next person on the train. I'll post the tracking # as soon as I get it. :)

The sticker train has arrived at my door. I will go over the package and get back in the mail soon.

Happy Easter!

 

ETA:  I had a chance to go through the package. A wonderful selection of stickers. I chose butterflies, flowers, and fairies.  I added some flowers, animals, hearts, teddy bears. The package will be sent out tomorrow. Be on the look-out, Kim. It's coming your way.

Hello, the sticker train arrived today, hand delivered by my neighbor.  She had received my mail the other day and just saw me outside.  So....I have been contacted by Gina, who asked me to skip her this time.  I will forward to the final destination by Tuesday.  Lots of cute stuff.

Gina, hope all is well!

Melissa, your train is coming! :)

Just checking in.  The train was at my station in mid-April. I miss it already.

Hello, dear Lisa! :)

To all: Melissa PM-ed me that the train has yet (as of this morning) to reach her. She will let us know when it does. 

I said this on the Train 15 thread but am truly considering once this train 14 is finished merging the two trains back into one. I miss one bigger train and know some of you, do, too. What do you all think?

YEP, I think its easier for you to keep up with. It seems tough having to seperate the trains Mona and I do miss everyone being a part of the same train. Hope others agree?

Update: I have heard from Renee.  Hooray she is well :) She is mailing off sticker train to you, Melissa, asap. 

To all: Once Melissa does get her train, we will figure out about combining both trains back into one. Of course, if Amy has not received her train by then, it will be for her. I have yet to hear from Sarah H. Praying for her! One train  is so much easier for me to keep track of! Thanks, Kimmy. II also don't like two threads, too confusing! It's also easier to figure out the route  with one train because I don't need to try and swap riders so folks will get to ride with some new friends :) 

:) Lisa
