Default Third Annual Christmas Card Swap! 2013

Yes, its that time of year again for those who remember. I know that it isn't even Thanksgiving yet, but we have decided to start now getting a list going so that it can be sent out the beginning of Dec. That way, there is plenty of time to send out the cards.

Last year, I had some hangups with being sick and personal issues coming up. So this year I have a co host, blehmannwa has offered to help me keep everything on track so that it doesn't happen late like last year.

For those who are new, let me explain.

If you wish to receive a Christmas card from people, you will PM myself AND blehmannwa (that way we can cross reference the list and one of us can send it out.) We will need a name and address to put on this list. There will be a cut off date where we will stop taking information, then send out the list to everyone the next day.

The only people who will see your information will be other people on this list. I will keep the list for a few days then I delete it, I do not keep it. I do not have the lists from previous years. You don't have to post here, you can just PM. You don't *have* to send to everyone on this list, (but its always nice lol)

I think, this year I am going to ask for an email also. This will NOT be on the list at all. On here you can only PM five people at a time. Last year there were about 20 people and the year before that I had about 27....that takes awhile to send, lol. I can just send it all at once via email. Again, this will NOT be included in the list. If you want to get the list that way, please send it, if not, then it can be sent on here, no biggy.

So, let this be the official start up date, and the end date will be Nov. 30th, 2013 at midnight US Eastern time. PM myself and blehmannwa with a name, address and email if you want to receive it that way. The list will get sent Dec. 1st 2013.

Happy Holidays! Any questions, just ask.

It is a lot of fun! It makes the mail more exciting and you get an awful lot of interesting cards. I'm really pleased to help GSDolch out.
Best

blehmannwa, I'm really glad you are helping me. I felt bad for getting the list out late last year and decided then I would have someone help me this year.

I think I got my love for Christmas cards from my mamaw. She would keep them every year and tap them around the door into the kitchen. Eventually she got to having to take them down the hallway, lol. She had some cards from 10/15 years prior!

Pinterest

I found a lot of neat ways to display Christmas Cards on Pinterest. I like the idea of painting some cloths pins and using them.

My Aunt was an church deacon and schoolteacher. Her Christmas card list was probably at least 75 folk. In her later years, I would help her address them. It doesn't seem like I know many people who still do the card exchange so this is kind of a nice way to remember her,
