Christmas Card Exchange

Someone on my birth board brought up the idea of a Christmas Card exchange. I thought it might be a fun idea for the Scrapbooking board too. You know, where everyone sends a Christmas card to everyone else who is participating?

What do you all think?

Obviously we wouldn't need to send them out now, but I was just wanting to get opinions on this. Smile

I personally think it's a great idea. I love sending out cards.

Great! I will start a sign-up in November for those who want to participate.

We did this on the TTC for the 1st Time board last year. Would it be the same card we're sending out to the rest of our families/friends?

Eh, what's a few more cards to make....and I love getting mail. I'm in!

Are we going to sign them, or send them with a personalized insert sheet that allows the individual to get a card in the mail and then reuse the card again if they'd like?

Ashley, yes I think we'd just send the same card we send out to family and friends.

So MommyMish, yes that would be a regular signed card.

Does that sound good?

sounds good to me. Maybe I'll take a drive and cross the border and mail them within the States so it's not as much money LOL

So are we going to exchange with everyone who signs up or one person only and who decides who gets who?

No offense ladies. I want you all to know that I'd like to participate, but I'm not sure it would be a good idea. We already send out about a hundred cards each year. I can't imagine sending more. I'll think about it though.

No problem! I can see how that would get very expensive, not to mention time consuming. We may have to see how many are participating and go from there after I get the sign-up in november. Even if everyone got 5-10 random cards?? Ideas anyone?

I like the idea of doing 5 or so random cards. That wouldn't be too much extra!

Yep, 5 would be managable for me. At least then I could sign up without worrying that I would be adding 20 or more cards to my huge list.

I love the idea of 5 cards too. Then we would just do it similar to the card exchange, only these cards would be signed and given just like a regular Christmas card. Everyone could send the cards to me and I would divide them out. We'll get all the details worked out closer to November. Thanks for the ideas!!!!!!!!
