    It will probably only be a small run, but you gotta start somewhere!
    So what’s a Christmas Card Swap? You submit your name and address, your details are then given to other people in the swap and you're given 10 other names and addresses. You then send those 10 people a Christmas Card and you'll also receive Christmas Cards from other people. Easy.

    Cost is a pack of cards – this can be as cheap or as expensive as you like, there's nothing wrong with a pack of $2 cards – and the cost of postage to some local and some international destinations. There is no guarantee on the final cost of postage - you could end up with a lot of international post, especially if there aren't a lot of participants from your neck of the woods. Hopefully your postal service offers discounted postage for seasonal mail.

    To participate in the Card Swap PM me your NAME, SCREEN NAME (if you would like it included – if you don't type your screen name it will not be revealed to other participants), POSTAL ADDRESS and EMAIL ADDRESS (so your list can be emailed to you – if you do not supply an email address, your list will be sent via PM). You can include your significant others name or "The Smith Family", this is quite alright to do and in fact I would encourage you to include your family. So if you would like cards addressed specifically to you and a partner or your family, please mention it in your PM.

    Due date will be FRIDAY 25TH NOVEMBER and names will be handed out by THURSDAY 1ST DECEMBER. Names will not be kept and your details will be deleted at the end of December.

    Hope as many people as possible participate – guaranteed to make you look popular and break the ice at parties. :)

    Cheers,
    Ingrid

    You know these lights things are meant to be fun . . . boy is set up out of that category. :)

    Sorry guys been busy putting up the mega tree this weekend. It's a little late but the card swap is closed. Not a huge list, 12 participants in fact. So shouldn't take long to get your lists out.

    Thanks guys for jumping in at short notice, next year we can see how we go! 8)
