Holiday Card Swap Signups!

Postby TequilaMockingbird » Thu Oct 29, 2015 6:02 pm

Hello Everyone! Its that time of year again. I hope its ok that I decided to host the card swap this time. Its already getting a little late so I wanted to open signups now so everyone has a chance to participate.

The card swap is so exciting because you receive so many holiday cards in the mail. And who doesn't love to receive a note of cheer around the holidays?

How the swap works (Thanks to our host last year, I copied the rules below):

When you sign up, you send me your mailing address. When sign ups close, I then send everyone a list of all the participants and their addresses (minus your own of course) and you send a card to everyone on your list. If we get 8 people who sign up, everyone would be sending out 7 cards, make sense? Easy peasy lemon squeezy. International members are most welcome!

Swap Info:

Sign up deadline: November 20th
Mailing deadline: December 10th

Rules:

--Cards may be handmade or store-bought and must be regular greeting card size (no teeny tiny cards, you are welcome to go larger just be aware there may be extra postage). Bonus points for LPS theme!!! ;)
--Cards may be all the same or tailored to each participant (or some of each :) ).
--Cards may be for any winter holiday or general winter. Be prepared to receive cards that may be celebrating a different holiday than you do.
--Be prepared to send cards internationally, which costs more than regular mail.
--All cards must be postmarked by the mailing deadline. If you need to mail your cards out late PM me immediately!
--Once the sign up deadline has passed and addresses have been exchanged, you may not back out of the swap! Negative feedback will be left for anyone who does not send out their cards.
If you are not certain you will be able to meet the deadlines or follow all the rules, do not sign up!
--Most important rule: Have fun!!


To sign up:
post in this thread your holiday of preference, and your favorite thing about winter/the holidays (in case any participant wants to tailor their cards) and then PM me your mailing address. Once I receive your address I will post your username in our list of participants!

So, who's excited?!

I celebrate non religious Christmas but a card for whatever holiday you celebrate however you celebrate it is fine.

I like all things animal, anything sparkly, and I love the color green.

Yay! Pretty cards in the mail!

I celebrate people and gift-giving and fun and good times. :D

My favorite thing about summer is EVERYTHING IS GROWING!! (This house is my first time with my own backyard, and I've been planting everything! I love seeing things sprout.)

Holiday type activities include barbecues and the beach. I sooooo can't wait to go to the beach!

I forgot to say this, but if you are unable to participate but would like to receive a card (I know it might be a lot for some people to send cards to everyone this time of year) please PM me your mailing address. I am happy to send you a holiday greeting as well. I will be making cards this year and am more than happy to send extras to everyone who makes this forum such an amazing place. Happy Holidays!

Yay! Thanks TequilaMockingBird for hosting this! It's always so much fun to get holiday mail!

I celebrate Christmas but am happy to receive any kind of card! I collect stamps for my brother, so I love getting special stamps on the cards too. :D

I'll sign up!

I celebrate non-religious Christmas, but I am happy to send/receive cards of any type. I love animals (especially dogs, but not monkeys!) I live in the American midwest, so I am kind of over snow and cold-- but on a card it would be fine! I also love Disneyland!

(Hope some of you recognize me! I'm more focused on the In My Pocket toys, but I also love LPS and have posted a few times here.)

Me please!
I celebrate Christmas but I love winter in general :)
My favorite part about Christmas is giving gifts, decorating the tree, and having holiday goodies :)

My cards took longer to make than expected and I had some things crop up so they are a little late. I really hope you like them!
