Christmas 2018

Post by lyndaejane on Tue 6 Nov 2018 - 15:55

Having been reminded by Karelyn the other week, I thought that maybe now we could turn our attention to the Christmas swap, not having done any others this year at all.

If no-one has any objections, or any better ideas, it seems best to stick to the previous two years' Christmas swap: either a Christmas card or a Christmas card plus a tree ornament.  Please try to join in with one of the swaps: we're such a small group and it's the one way to express our thanks to one another for the love and support we get on the forum all year.

Just to cover the ground again, the Forum Christmas card is a card which will be sent to one other forum member, but will have inside it a message to everyone on the forum.  You can choose whether you just want to send a card or if you'd like to make a Christmas Tree ornament - however simple and in whatever materials you want - to go with it.  Once we get to the cut-off date, or everyone has signed up - which ever is the sooner, and giving me time to trawl through recent years so you're not always sending to/receiving from the same person - you will receive a PM from me to let you know who your recipient will be.

Sign up by December 2nd, cards/card and ornament to be posted by the Last Posting Date.  These dates are: 18th December - 2nd Class inland and France; 20th December - 1st Class inland.

CARD ONLY

Both for me please, will be a easy peasy ornament, but I have just bought a new mag to use the freebee for all of my cards this year and I'm sure I can manage a ornament from it too. Got to be in it to get one back, :)

Thanks Lynda

LOL, Alison! Will put your name on the list. Think that's all of us now, although will wait, just in case Lorraine feels able to come on and join in.

Have been hanging on in case Lorraine came on, but will now work on the swapees, trying not to give you someone you swapped with in recent years. Watch this space, except for the card only swap which doesn't take an Einstein to guess!

I've now sent a PM to all of you in the card and ornament swap: please get back to me if you don't receive it.

Thanks, everyone.

Ruth - could you very kindly do two things, please?

Amend Maria's surname to Malvestio in the RAKs list - think it has to be done by a Mod, as only Lorraine's name appears as posting the entries.

Set up a gallery for Christmas 2018 so that we can post our pictures of the cards and ornaments.

Thanks a lot.

Lynda

My gorgeous ornament and card arrived today - thankyou so much Karelyn! The ornament alternates between being a Christmas one and an all-year one - you'll see when I post the picture. Most ingenious!
