wave I was wondering if the exchange worked?  Did you all send cards to your recipient and did you receive one from a forumite?  Do tell!

Oh, and shall we do it again this year?

I'll try that again!

I sent mine and received a lovely one in return. I got a bonus card too from another lovely forumite, so I was well carded this year.

Thank-you for organising it 🙂

I sent mine and had a wonderful hand made card well before I posted any of mine. Thanks for organising it, and yes, please for next year!

We got a lovely handmade card in good time - far more interesting than store bought ones I think, although I am not knocking them either!

Late in sending ours but hopefully has arrived.

Yes, let's do it again please, TA.

Could we organise one again for Easter do you think?

I don't mind doing it for Easter or Solstice, or both.  Let me know which you'd like.

Anyone interested in having a birthday list?  I'd keep it updated if you want me to start one, to be an on-line service only I think.

I'll try that again!

Please include me on Easter/solstice list if one is set up.  I like the idea of a birthday list if this can be arranged without it becoming too onerous.

Incidentally, it looks as if some interesting  home made Christmas cards were received.  I was completely lacking in inspiration this  year and had to resort to charity cards, so I'd love to see some examples if they can be photographed.

Gone crazy. Back soon.

Easter is a lovely idea, TA, and so too is a birthday list.

I don't recall evidence of celebrating the summer solstice in a big way in the UK (in terms of sending greetings), although perhaps it is in other countries.

wave I am happy to be included in anything at all. ( well you know what I mean )

 Just as a matter of interest TA how may of us participated in the card exchange?  However many, I am sure the numbers will increase for any further events.

'm late to the party here!

I had a lovely card, and did send one, but post around here was very dodgy, they didn't empty the postbox I put it in for well over a week and at one point I saw evil children posting snowballs aargh

which will not have done the fountain pen ink ANY favours. I apologise most heartily if it never showed up.

'd love to be included on any subsequent lists, as long as it's not snowing when the cards have to be sent, that is.

Intolerance will not be tolerated.

OK, Birthday people, please e-mail me your birthday date, you don't have to include the year if you don't want to:  taalyn(at)tiscali.co.uk (you know that you have to replace the (at) with @ don't you? to save me from the spammers).  Put Birthday List in the subject line.  Greetings for birthdays will be on-line only.


I think we'll go with Easter as the next exchange, there should still be time for hand-making if desired.  Again e-mail me (separately) with Easter Card in the subject line.  

I'll try that again!
