The Credit Crunch Christmas Card Swap

Post by Scrap Monkey on Fri 20 Nov 2009 - 10:12

Okay I was 'missing' last Christmas, so wasn't here to get involved with any swaps, but I see that Lynda organised a 'stress-free' christmas card swap, which seemed like a cracker of an idea . Since I guess Lynda is probably a bit busy unpacking right now Lou has given me to go ahead and organise this year's swap.

So, here's the deal; you make one Christmas Card, which is your card to everyone on the forum. You send it to your 'swapee', who takes a picture or scan of both the card and the greeting inside, and posts it for all to see. Simples!

Sign up by 28th November. SIGN UP NOW CLOSED THANKS.
Cards to be posted by 14th December.



Let's keep this simple; everyone needs to send their card to the next person on the list; i.e. I send to Maria, Maria sends to Steph etc. Any questions, queries etc please shout!

Excellent, I reckon even I can manage one card, and that's two of us Maria!

I think given how near it it I shall cheat and copy Lynda's idea; I'll amend the first post and see if anyone else signs up.

No, I'm not putting my 'to do' list here, that would be far to organised, PLUS I would have to keep it up to date Laughing

Me too - although I have already made my cards for everyone. I was going to send them
when the postal strike looked as if it was going to happen but as it didn't go ahead they are
all sat in a carrier bag waiting to be posted at the right time.

I just cannot afford the postage on 70 odd cards at 70p or 1.40 a go, plus the cost of the card (and no, i am not making 70 cards) so for me this year I am sending everyone an ecard - better for the environment anyway. I will feel less of a misery if I join in this though.

We wouldn't dream of calling you names . Nobody would expect you to behave as though this is a 'normal' Christmas; you need to do what's right for you.

Yes please, although I'd love to send individual cards to everyone I know it's mission impossible for me, still got quite a few B'days to sort before I can get seriously into the Christmas card factory mode.
Last years card that I received was very special.

Is she back before we finish signing up? Shall I just put her name down anyway? She could always say 'no' when she's back!
