It's Christmas Card exchange sign up time!

tami_ohioOctober 8, 2012

It's that time again! Fall has arrived. It's been pretty chilly around here, the leaves are changing and falling. It's time for me to start the sign up for the Christmas Card exchange again. If you would like to sign up, please email me thru my page with your real name, screen name, and snail mail address (P O Box if you want). Please use the email that you want to receive the list at. For those who have not participated before, here is how it works. You email me with the above information. You have until about a week before Thanksgiving to sign up. I will then divide the list of those who sign up into approx. 10 people. I will email the list of everyone who signs up sometime Thanksgiving weekend. I will ONLY give the addresses to those who sign up. NO ONE ELSE. You will send to those in the group in which your name appears. After you have sent to those people, you may send to anyone or everyone else on the list, but please make sure you mail to everyone in your group first. I would like to see everyone have thier cards sent out by the end of the first week of December, as those outside of the USA take 1-2 weeks for thier mail to arrive. And many like to use the cards to decorate with in the weeks before Christmas.

I am looking forward to all the beautiful cards I receive each year! It always puts a smile on my face when I go to the Post Office Box and find a handful of cards!

Yes, Minnie, please do email me with your info again this year. That way I can copy and paste knowing I have it right. You too, Phyllis! As of a minute ago, I don't have an email from you.

I am sending a reply email to each of you who sign up so you know I have added you to the list. It also will automatically put you in my email contacts so I don't have to manually type your email addys into the email when I send the list out.

Jannie, please email me with your info so I get it correct. If you don't want to click on my page to do it, my email from last year is correct.

Anne, Hope you can join us! Just let me know. You have plenty of time yet.

I love getting lots of Christmas cards, I use them to decorate my front entrance. Just remember postage to Canada is extra. Many of the Christmas card list joiners are from the Great White North.

I hope more sign up. We only have 18 now. Hopefully more will sign up closer to Thanksgiving. I may not make mine this year. I may be lazy and buy them from my DB. If I do, you are all in for a treat! He is a graphic artist with his own studio. Last year the town did a Christmas walk. Each store in town participated. He did a painting of Santa durning the weekend, then turned it into printed cards. He said he hopes to do another one this year. His work is fantastic!

Please make sure when you sign up that you include your KT screen name if you don't use your real name. I have had some new people sign up, and I didn't have all the info. I had to email them back for it. I am sending a reply email anyway, so you know I got your info. Hope more people join us! It's so much fun!

Patti, no need to take you off the list. You do NOT need to make them. Store bought is just fine. Please stay with us.

Oh, what a relief! I just about had a panic attack :-) I truly think a first grader would do a better job at making cards than I would!

Tami, I would love to do the Christmas card exchange but I am having elbow surgery this Fri & I will be in a metal cast from under my armpit to my wrist for at least 2 months. Hope you have this next year & I will not be going in for a 5th surgery.

minnie tx-thank you for saying that. I just hate not to be able to send back but I would love to get the cards.
patti43-it is very uncomfortable as the only time it comes off is when you shower. I can type with one hand, takes a while but the only thing I can't do is the caps. I will send tami my info but I hope everyone understands I can't send a card back
