I know *I* didn't get any, but I sent a few out. Did anybody get my cards? Mimi, I know you did. Anyone else? Did anybody actually MAIL any? I still think it's not too late, especially since I love to see all the theme cards you people usually send. Maybe we should send them out for Valentines day!

Or maybe...you can scan them here? Hmmm? Or describe them?

I am still going to send them, I swear!
tomorrow, they go.

Mine are small, but vintage late 40s, early 50s. It's hard to tell. I found a whole box.

Bygone Knits and Lindydiva got special 1930s ones, because they are the Deco Divas I know...

Kitten, yours was a treat!

Thanks!

I got one a few years ago that was a vintage snapshot of two well dressed but slightly rumpled ladies having a smoke and a perturbed little girl next to them. Inside it reads, "Monica dear, there is no santa. Now, be a sweetheart and fix mommy another martini."

I saved it! I still have it on my bookshelf. I wonder whatever happened to Jim "big Tiki" Woods?

The card Mimi sent me was GORGEOUS! (Again, thank you SO much!) I had a lovely hand-painted 1920s one from my Beau, enclosed in my Christmas Box. In his I sent two from the 20s -- a Christmas one with a Jack Russell terrier on it (his boyhood dog), and another one for New Year's, also handpainted...the new year's HP ones actually came in a lot of three similar ones -- I'll have to scan one....they're so pretty.

Heh. As I grow older, I've noticed there is something about the holidays which makes one desperately need to toss back a good, stiff drink...or seven....on a regular basis.

I will have to go through my stack of cards. I have them from 2006 also. I sent out cards to everyone on the list I think. I didn't go reto this year but I saw the Mr. Winkle cards and had buy them.

Never got around to it, but I received some lovely ones. Put it this way: I never even sent a card to my mother. (Though I did get the presents out.)

Christmas was Madness this year.

Next year I will do better, I swear.

I bailed on the cards this year as well. But thank you to those folks who sent me some anyway! Embarassed I ran out of cards, then stamps, then time...

That's funny SQT.....great line!

I think the time loss has something to do with all the missing socks from the dryer.

Shocked

Hopefully, you guys will still let me in? I've been a heel, not posting much, but will still like to exchange cards if that's ok?

Just realised the date!

So what do we do? Does one person collects the addresses and then exchanges them with everyone in the card exchange? I'm happy to volunteer. Very Happy

I think that's how it's done....at least in the past....but seems unfair to have one person do it all though.....maybe you could talk LS into helping! santa

What I always did was gather all the info, make a spreadsheet of it, and then just email it to everyone playing.

That way, each person can send to whomever they choose! If I still have it, Miss R, I'll send it out to you and then you work it from there...it would be Fab if you have time to take it on!!

Just PM me your address!

Mimi if you do have the spreadsheet that would be good and hopefully I can get it all done before the last Christmas posting date Very Happy

I can't believe it's December tomorrow.

Sorry!

I have only had bits and pieces of minutes online this past week/weekend!

Hopefully tonight I can sit down and get some things done, will locate the spreadsheet and forward to Miss R!!

I know we are all busy....could we do something to make it easier? Say just draw our site names out of a hat and then we could pm each other....make it easier for you????? Just a thought....

Well if everyone wants to PM me their addresses I will do a quick exchange.

But we have to be quick! Shall I give a deadline of Thursday 11, that way everyone has the weekend to get their cards sorted.

I think our last posting date might have gone so it may be a New Years card from us!
