This was so much fun this past year! An entire month of happy mail. As an adult it made me again remember all the excitement that would lead up to my Birthday party. Come and join us, we would love to have you.

Please remember by signing up you are making a 12 MONTH COMMITTMENT!!!

*****REQUIRED CHECK IN, EVERY 2 WEEKS ON THIS THREAD****Please join me in 2012 sending out birthday cards to our fellow scrappers!All skill levels are welcome.

Please have at least 500 postings, or have swapped with me before. I will not have my friends flaked on. If you sign up and then quit sending cards after your Birthday then I WILL put you on my flaker list and I WILL share that list with my friends on here.

The point is to make and send a birthday card to the members on or around their birthday, (you will get a bunch of cards sent to you on your birthday as well). You can also include a little handmade something or sb embellishment if you wish but that is optional.

If you are interested in signing up please pm me your name, address, and birthdate. I will compile a list and pm that info to everyone. Please remember your information will be shared with fellow neighbors so they are able to send you a card. Just think of how much fun it will be to get a bunch of cute cards on your birthday from people who share a passion for crafting.

I will be keeping up with those that do and do not send out cards. I understand that things do come up and you might miss a month of sending out cards and that is okay as long as you pick back up the next month and send out cards. It is not fair for an individual to send out cards every month to each birthday ladies and then in return only receive one card on her birthday. I hope everyone can understand this and participate fairly!

***There was a question asked from a prior round from someone who signed up, asking if it's OK to send a store bought card. That is okay! Not everyone makes cards and it will still be nice to get these cards whether handmade or store bought. It may be nice to include a little handmade sb item if you choose to, but again, this is optional. This should be fun and not stressful.***

This past year running this swap has taught me many things about organizing and follow up. Things will be run alittle different this time around. I have found a way to track better and I will only be sending out the addresses for the month we are sending to. By the 20th of every month except January I will send out the new list of whose birthday it is.

Yes basicilly the way it works is in January to send to all the ladies that have birthdays in January and the same for every month. Its a great way to see other ppls styles and to recieve birthday cards during your birthday month.

Even though late in the year birthdays usually get less cards, I'm in again. I have already started to make my 2012 cards! Yeah. My goal is to have all the cards made early so I don't have to post the embarrassing 'I'm sorry these are late' messages. hehe. Happy card making!

I'm gearing up for the holidays already. It's time to get the Christmas card picture printed already! Time sure does fly. This year I'm sending out last years card, a baby announcement for my now 1 year old and this years cards. haha. I guess it will at least save a stamp.

This year I will be sending out the address for each month. So Febuary Birthdays addresses will be sent by January 20 and so on. Means more work but easier to track because I can record dates sent and recd. I will exactly who is sending when!

Morning...I couldn't help but read your topic and I'd love to join but I don't have 500 posts. Is that truly mandatory? I make beautiful cards but I just don't post them as often as I should. I'm extremely shy about people seeing my work, but I've never participated in a swap before and I feel up to a challenge that will tap into my skills. And I saw all the postings too...you have quite the following!!! Please let me know if I can participate as I can make very pretty cards and have TONS of great "toys" to make them with. PM me if I can participate and I'll send you my info too...until soon I hope...

Sincerely, Laura Gonzalez, Feeding Hills, MA

Is it possible to still sign up for this? I was in this swap a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it. Couldn't join last year because we were trying to sell our house and move. Finally, everything worked out and I just got my scraproom set up and can't wait to start using it again!
I would love to join if the card swap is still open.

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!
