Just a reminder of the plan:

Each participant will send just one card, and will receive one card. Toffeeapple will draw the names of the senders and recipients.

A query, TA: will it be one pair of forumites exchanging cards, or will each recipient not know who will be sending them a card?

I think it would be extra special to not know from whom you will receive a card, but if you'd prefer to do it the other way, please let me know.

I'll try that again!

Bumping up to remind anyone who has not yet joined in this exchange, to get a move on if you want to be included.  We are hurtling into the middle of October and I don't want anyone left out.

BTW, anyone seen Mutley?  He was the first to sign up but has since disappeared, not even posted on his blog the last time I looked...

I'll try that again!

TA, why not try sending him an email. As a Mod, I think you can see peoples' email addresses. If not, I will do it. I think Nige sent me his phone number many months ago. I must check my emails.

I sent him an e-mail a week or so ago, but have had no response.  It's possible that he's having computer problems.  Danny, if you do have his phone number I'd appreciate it if you could find time to call him.

I'll try that again!

For the record, TA and I both did try calling Mutley but his number was "not available".

Also, TA has written to him by snail mail.

Hope all is well with him and Jade.

Roll up, everybody, and join in the fun Christmas Card Exchange brightsparklystuff

[Image Can Not Be Found]  As Michelle has just reminded me, this will be the last call for anyone wanting to join in this little game.  I will be drawing names from the 'hat' on Saturday 30th October 2010 so, if you want to be included, send me a Personal Message with your postal address before then.  Newbies are welcome to sign up too, don't be shy - PM me!

I'll try that again!
