Voting Time!!

Best Kits Voting Has Begun!

Hello Everyone! The time has come for all HSKS6 students to cast their votes for who have made the best kits!

Here are the guidelines and instructions.

1- Go house by house. You will vote for one kit per house.

2- Visit all the links listed on the left hand side of this blog by house. The links go directly to the blog post about the spoilers kit. For example, if you go to my name, Bevin Rae Mooney, it will link directly to my spoilee and the blog she wrote about the kit I made for her.

3- Choose which kit you think is the best in each house by the name on the link.

4- Email me: bevinraemooney(at)gmail(dot)com with your four selections. Optionally, you can add WHY you chose the ones you did... this will benefit those you vote for in the end.

If your kit is not listed and you know it has arrived, email me ASAP and I will take it up with the Head Girl of your spoilers house.

If you are listing your kit from your spoiler, email me ASAP as well so I can add it.

DEADLINE: All votes must be cast by 9:00 p.m. Hogwarts Time (a.k.a. Pacific Standard Time) on Tuesday, December 2nd.

Mistress Wartbobble will be announcing all awards the following day.

Good Luck Everyone!

Everyone has been so giving and considerate in their spoilee kits. The great advantage of being the Best Kit Coordinator is that I get to see, firsthand, the TLC you all have put forth for one another! But, all good things must come to an end...
Today is the last day to mail your kits out!!

Updates on received kits will continue in the coming days and a schedule will be set up with Mistress Wartbobble for the Best Kits contest!!

Stay tuned in via the HSKS6 blog, the Ravelry group, or just simply looking here.

Please post pics of sent/rec'd packages

With the early deadline having just passed, many of you may be a wee bit worn out knitting, crocheting and sewing your spoilees' goodies.... but please make sure to post on the HSKS6 site that your package has been received.

Also, please show us your awesome kit with a blog post on your own blog.

There are several kits that have already been received that do not have pictures or blog posts to go with them. I've sent comments to those I've heard about, but I am sure there are more that need to be accounted for.

Owl me with any questions.
Thank you!

Tracking USPS Packages

Since I just spoke about this on our Ravelry HSKS group, I figured it should be here as well.

For packages being mailed from the United States-- weather leaving the country or staying within the U.S., you can track them easily via the USPS Track and Confirm web page.

Main USPS page

Track & Confirm Page

The site is slow, updated nightly, but it works!

For a package with a destination within the U.S.

  • You will pay $0.65 for this service and will be given a 20 digit Delivery Confirmation Number like this: 0307 0080 0505 2123 4853
  • Example of the form you will fill out. You will be given the detachable receipt on the left side of the form when dropping off your package.
  • This number is also printed on the receipt given to you if you lose the receipt they give you.
For a package with a destination outside the U.S.
  • You will fill out a Customs Declaration Form
  • example one is for smaller items like an envelope bubble mailer. A detachable receipt is given when you drop off the package.
  • example two is for larger items like a box - You will receive a copy of the entire form with this type of Customs form.
  • The number on both of these forms starts with two letters, then eight numbers, then ends with US, i.e. CP18439578US
  • This number is also printed on the receipt given to you if you lose your copy of the form.

Please leave any questions or comments and I will get back to you ASAP.

Happy Shipping!!
