    actually, after reading this thread, I would love to buy another clear starfish - and because I'm not getting married until 05/05/2012, it will have plenty of travel time before my date. hockymom, I am amazed at the coincidence between us both wanting to purchase a starfish and our dates. is there any way I could convince you to be the first to carry the new starfish? I can order it from the vendor today and have it shipped directly to you so it would still be something borrowed. please let me know. 

     

    karla (or past brides), what did the original notebook look like? I want to choose one that's similar to it. thank you.

Just wanted to let you all know in case someone else wants to buy a new one to keep the dc22173 list going. I still think this is a great idea and hopefully someone will keep the starfish traveling :)

      kellygrrrl, if you don't send your starfish to hockeymom, I would love to be the first bride to use your starfish. Maybe we could even set up an online blog to track it's travels. Our wedding is April 22nd, and our travel dates are April 16 to April 27.

       

      Thanks!

        awesome!! thanks, mochamakes3!! it sounds like hockeymom already has a plan in place, so if you would, please PM me your address, and I'll order the starfish to be directly shipped to you unless hockeymom wants it instead. I'll wait to hear back from her before ordering.

         

        any ideas what this notebook of well-wishes looks like?

            ok, sorry for the quick back and forth here. it doesn't appear the previous vendor http://www.bouquetjewels.com/ is still carrying the same 'star of the sea' jewel, though they do have a sale on the remaining sand colored starfish if anyone is interested: http://www.bouquetje... of the sea.htm. they are also carrying a skinnier hawaiian beach collection starfish - again if anyone is interested http://www.bouquetje..._p/starfish.htm.  

             

            because the thread originated around the 'star of the sea,' I found it on another site http://store.thebrid...bjstarfish.html. in the meantime, mochamakes3 PMed me her address, which was in canada (I'm in texas). the store not only offered to ship directly to canada for only $6 US but when I mentioned that her wedding was only a few weeks away, they dug through their supply and found a clear one in stock (they had previously thought they'd be waiting on a shipment until mid-next week). I figured it was a sign that mochamakes3 was due to have a sparkly starfish in time for her wedding and put through the order ASAP. hockeymom, I do apologize, but it sounds as though you had other plans. I really hope it's ok.

             

            SO now picking up where dc22173, the CLEAR starfish thread will be continued as below. ChristieAnn, sorry, but your dates are too close to other ceremonies to be added, and NurseM you have been added. I think you mentioned someone else had been left off - please let me know. also, if upcoming brides can please be sure to update with their current city and state (so we can plan for sending across borders), that would be great.

             

            please keep us up-to-date with the condition of the starfish, as that seems to be an issue after numerous voyages. ; ) finally, mochamakes3 will be adding a travel journal and will send with the starfish to NurseM after her wedding.
