Not sure which forum to post this....

Is anyone intersted in a Christmas card exchange?


More and more of our family and friends are opting out of sending snail mail Christmas cards for the Hallmark email cards. I miss being able to display cards.

If there is enough interest, I would break the list into groups of 10. That way you wouldn't have to purchase boxes and boxes of cards or go broke on postage.

10 stamps x 41cents =$4.10

Store bought or homemade...either would bring a smile when I send my littles to collect & open the mail.


Interested?

PM me with your address and I'll assemble a list.
Also, please post here that your family would like to participate.

You all are the BEST!    The compiled list hasn't even been sent yet, but the anticipation of receiving Christmas cards from so many 4Real friends is exciting.


If you've posted here that you'd like to participate, please don't forget the most important part....PM me with your snail mail address.

Thank you all for signing up! Check you PM box.   

I've sent the list of the families who have signed up ...with their snail mail address.
If you have not received it by now or have any questions, please let me know.

We are heading out the door for a class, but I'll check back to ensure everyone who signed up received the final list.

I can't express how thankful I am.    
We are very excited about this!

Thanks, Michaela!

I only had Mary Chris and Robynn on my list.....so I get lots of new folks

I figured since you mentioned in the pm that you were sending yours out about the 7th.......I should give everyone a heads up about the Bryans......while I usually get them out by Christmas.....last year, they definitely went out during the two weeks after Christmas

so........please do not wonder where my card is..........I plan to get it to you by Saint Valentine's Day (which, is when I got the LAST card out.......having misplaced a few ).....notice I did not make any promises?

Oh, .......and my Christmas card always includes a missal........be forewarned!

Blessings!

Thanks Michaela for setting this up. I usually don't send out Christmas cards till the end of December -- that way I get the kids in their Christmas finery. Is that a problem for anyone? And I think it's very cool to send one to Wales, (btw, the classical station just mentioned that "Christmas in Wales" by Dylan Thomas will be performed in December -- how cool is that!).

This is going to be the start of a renewed interest in sending out cards, at least around here. What's $.41 between friends?????

Just to let you ladies know, I think that you will have to purchase a different stamp for Wales ... I am not certain of this. However, I seem to remember going to the post office and getting a special stamp to write to my friend in Grimsby, England.

In the middle of packing ... here come the movers. Thanks!
