2016 holiday CARD SWAP!!

Postby Waylah » Mon Oct 31, 2016 5:40 pm

Who wants to send and receive some beautiful cards in the mail?? :D

How the swap works (largely copied from previous years):

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 and you send a card to everyone on your list (minus your own of course). 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 (I mean, you could put a teeny tiny card in with a regular sized card, but just don't send only a tiny card to anyone); 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, just let me know.
--Once the sign up deadline has passed and addresses have been exchanged, you may not back out of the swap! So just make sure you will be able to meet the deadlines before you sign up. If you are not sure that you can, it is best not to sign up as a participant.
--If your circumstances mean you can't send cards this year, but you are interested in receiving cards, you can private pm me your interest as a card-receiver only. If participants express an interest in sending out extra cards, I can then give them your postal address.
--There is no obligation for participants to send cards to anyone not on the participation list. However, if you would like to send out extra cards, just let me know.
--Most important rule: Have fun!!


To sign up:
post in this thread your holiday of preference, and your favorite thing(s) about the season/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!

Who's excited?! :D

I'm in!

I celebrate a religious christmas. I love getting any kind of card though!

I love reindeer, snow, animals in santa hats, horse drawn sleighs, winter scenes, song birds, cats, woodland creatures, winter animals, anything fun and cheerful. I'm pretty easy to please. :)

Hey everyone! I don't post here much, but I have my own 90s toy-themed message board for Puppy in my Pocket. Joey is a member of both and he invited us to join you guys for the card swap! I swapped cards with you guys last year and had a lot of fun, so I thought I'd do it again!

I celebrate non-religious Christmas, but am open to all cards. I love animals (especially dogs) and art/being creative. Not a huge fan of snow or cold, but 'tis the season!

I love getting cards! and making them too. This forum makes this time of year really fun.

I celebrate a non-religious Christmas, and also the Summer solstice. In the Summer I like sitting in nature in the sun, and watching insects. I love all the festiveness of season! Anything fun :)

I bought my cards from Target! I found a really cut design. This month is going to be crazy for me so I'm opting with store bought this year.

Hi everyone,
I sent out addresses on Nov 21, but it has just been brought to my attention that you may not all have received the message! Just let me know if you haven't and I'll send it to you directly.

I got mine from twincheckers too! I mailed mine out. Unfortunately had to go with store bought cards this year. With work and being sick I couldn't make the custom idea I had a reality. Definitely will start earlier next year! Happy Holidays everyone!
