      In the past, we’ve had a holiday swap: an exchange of cards, tags and ATCs.
      They’ve been a huge success; I and all of the others who have participated treasure the gorgeous handmade creations that we’ve received in our mailboxes.
      We skipped it last year because a certain person had a damaged wing. I'd like to revive it this year if enough of you are interested.

      For those who’ve never participated, here’s how it works:

      If you want to join in, please let me know in this thread.

      As soon as you’ve signed up, PM me with your email and your full mailing address.

      We’ll take signups through November 11. This will give you all plenty of time to make your cards/tags/ATCs.

      As I receive your information, I’ll put it all together and email each participant a full list of names and addresses.

      You will be expected to make and send a card to everyone who signs up. I can’t give you a mailing deadline, but please remember that we do want to make sure that our cards make to the recipients in time for the holidays.

      A few of you (and one DH) have expressed conces in the past about the number of cards that you're committing to.

      While it's impossible to tell how many will sign up here, judging from the past three swaps, we're looking at around 12 – 15. Now, that is NOT a firm number; IF hoards of you end up deciding to join, I can always randomly assign a limited number to everyone. (I'd love feedback on that, please.)
      BTW, I did make a lot of cards for the past several years to send out to family and friends along with those that I sent out for the swap. I discovered very early on that the trick is assembly line: come up with 4 – 5 designs and make lots of each. I ended up with some really nice cards and did it all in under a week.

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

        Sign me up! And, as far as it goes, I would like a limit if we get a huge response. 12-15 sounds doable but more would make me wanna quit!

          Jan, 12 – 15 is all that anyone can handle, lol. No, if we get more signups than that, I'll make sure that we all give and get a dozen or so.

          BTW, I mentioned tags and ATCs. These count as well. Basically, it's whatever you feel like making and sending.

            Sign me up, Pegs! I'm hoping for around 15 too, but we can work it out if it gets big.

                Last year I mass-produced cards for my knitting group and swore never again, BUT…I can't resist the temptation of getting a bunch of beautiful cards/tags,ATCs in my mailbox. I'm in!

                  Peggy is is just cards like you said here:

                  You will be expected to make and send a card to everyone who signs up. I can’t give you a mailing deadline, but please remember that we do want to make sure that our cards make to the recipients in time for the holidays.

                    Kimberly, Peggy said we can make whichever we feel like making 🙂

                    I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do yet – cards or ATCs

                      Hmmmm don't know if I can make 15 cards or tags etc.????? Hmmmmmm I have to ponder this for a while. Oh hell, sign me up, I have tons of Christmas paper I need to use up. Assembly line sounds like the way to go.

                        I so want to do this, but I think 15 maybe too rich for my blood. Shit, what the hell, I'm in.

                          Yes, Kimberly, you make your choice of cards, tags OR atc's; I'm sorry that I wasn't clear!!!!

                          Okay, counting me, we have 10 signups; Kimberly did you want to play along?
