Birthday card list

Hi all
This isn't a swap in the usual sense of the word, but as we are a small group I thought it might be nice to send each other birthday cards  Smile .The idea is that people will sign up before the new year, letting me know their birthday and snail mail address by pm. I will then compile a list and pm it to all taking part. When it is someone's birthday then all those on the list will send them a card.
We can leave it open or each person could choose a theme for their cards?
What do you think?
If interested please pm me and let others know here, but don't post your address here.

Hi all, thanks for the pms, am geting a little list (Jennie I need to know your birthday)
I wasn't planning on pm ing people to remind them but doing a list at the beginning of the year. I could also post a list of birthdays if peopel are happy with this but will not post addresses.Let me know what you think.
Miriam can you ask Sophie if she'd like to go on the list if she isn't able to visit the forum at the moment? Thanks
Mickie

Vonny maybe you could send a pm addressed to everyone, much like the ones we get from UKSN, with the list of birthdays and relevant addresses.

Don't woory guys. it would on be the date not the year of your birth - no-one has told me that anyway  Laughing
I have asked Miriam if there is a way I can pm a group rather than having to do each person.that will make it easier

Thanks jo and Jen - added to the list. 8 so far but still time to sign up for the start of 2011.
Pat

I'm in for this one too.
Pat
Sarah

Great idea I'd like to do this too
vonny

Pat and Sarah - on the list.
Will send it out tomorrow and post a list of the dates on a new thread.
Jennie

Hubbies are going to get very jealous when we get all these cards  :lol
Miriam

Vonny,  have you sent the list out yet?  I don't think I've seen anything....  it is quite exciting though - my husband has been hiding cards away for me that have been arriving over the last week....  my family always send them out really early to me.
vonny

Hi all
I sent the list out a few minutes ago. I pasted it in but the table lines didn't copy. i think it can still be read ok, but any problems let me know. i will start a new thread with the dates listed so they are easy to find.
I may even try to remind you all a month in advance - but can't promise  Laughing
Anyway, Miriam's is first but she is aware that it is too soon for everyone to get cards to her.
Enjoy.
Miriam

Thanks for organising Vonny....
vonny

no problem - hopefully will be worth it to get loads of cards!! Very Happy
Sarah

Birthday cards

Thanks again for organizing this Vonny Will try and get a card to you in time Miriam, but hope it won't matter if it's a day or two late - am in rural Oxfordshire and not sure how good the post will be from here!
Jojo79

Thanks for the list Vonny  Smile
vonny

I'm sure Miriam will understand. Or people could send a "thinking of you" type card if they know they will miss the date.
Miriam

That's very kind of you Sarah.  My post never arrives on time anyway, especially over New Year, so it's like my birthday lasts a week!! Smile
vonny

that's a nice way to think about it miriam.
hope you get a few cards tomorrow though  Very Happy
Mickie

Happy Birthday to you Miriam, hope you are having a really good time Laughing

You bet. I missed my usual handmade cards at Christmas. There were only 2 this year. It seems the years are catching up on everyone and the PC age has taken over.

Nothing like a crafted card in ones hand.

Pat
vonny

I agree Pat. i had quite a few this year, lucky me! Mind you one only arrived yesterday  Sad .
vonny

hi all
Maggie has joined the list and I have pm'd the updated one to you all. Any problems please let me know.

vonny

Jojo79

Thanks Vonny
vonny

Mickie

vonny

Miriam

Thanks Vonny - you are so organised.
Mickie

Thanks Vonny - will endeavour to get cards out by the right dates this month Rolling Eyes

Mickie x
vonny

miriam it seems so but I have a list pinned above my craft table so every time I sit down I see it! pretty worried I will miss someone!
Beckyb

Laughing  Laughing I do that sort of thing as well.

vonny

hi all
just a remionder that we all signed up for this for the year and as people will make cards for you then it is only fair that you make for them too. I know things often happen to get in the way so if you miss someone's birthday I think it would be really nice if you could just send a "hello" card to them when things are easier in your life. This will then be a really nice surprise  Smile
Vonny x
vonny

just a heads up that Jo's birthday is on 10th Dec and mine is 24th - don't forget to post early for Xmas  Laughing also i will be away a couple of days before and will take any that arrive early with me
Beckyb

ok thanks Vonny.

   Becky x
Miriam

Thanks Vonny
Mickie

Right-O - Birthday cards will make a lovely change from Christmas cards Laughing

Mickie x
vonny

gret news - Sophie has now joined this swap. Her birthday is 20 June and you should all have a pm with her address - if not please let me know and I'll send again

Sophie you should have a pm with the list of birthdays and addresses - if not, again please let me know.

thanks for the support for this  Very Happy
vonny

Just noticed in another post that Jo is away from 8th Dec so if you can get cards to her a bit earlier then please do.
Mickie

Thanks for that Vonny  Laughing

With the new year coming up I wanted to check if people wanted to carry on with the birthday card list. As we all know there is a commitment to make a birthday card for EVERYONE on the list - or if time is against you some other sort of card to send greetings at a later date. It is easiest if anyone who wishes to come of the list posts here - otherwise I will assume that you all want to continue next year.
Also anyone wishing to join the list please pm me with your birthday and address and I will add you on.

Thanks for your support for this during 2011 - hoping to reap my reward soon. Laughing
Mickie

Think this is a lovely idea and am happy to carry on  Laughing

Mickie x
Miriam

I'm happy to carry on
vonny

hi all
Just to let you know that Maggie will no longer be part of this swap, at least for the time being. so please remove her from your lists. thanks to her for letting me know.

miriam and Mickie - glad you are still carrying on
margaret rorie

I would like to carry on - it was lovely getting so many hand made cards this year.  Margaret
Sarah

thank you all for the beautiful cards that I received on my birthday - Mike had been secretly gathering them and gave me a large pile along with a cup of tea in bed in the morning. they were alll so different but really helped to make the day special. I have a photo but need to download it then will post - thank you all again.
vonny

REminder- Sarah's birthday is 4th april. i have not had any change of address so use what we have unless I hear from her.
thanks
Sarah

Oh, good point Vonny.  It would be better to give you my parents' address.  Anything that goes there before 30th March will come out with Hannah on 30th, so I would get them in time. My mother will forward anything else on, and I will be very happy whenever I get anything so PLEASE everyone don't feel under pressure to do for 30th especially as I've been so hopeless and not given any warning...
vonny

Have pm'd you all with the address for Sarah -if you haven't received this please let me know.
thanks
Beckyb

Thanks Vonny I have received it

   Becky x
Mickie

Have you pm'd us all Vonny?  Only I had email notification that therewas a message for me but when I went to look there was nothing!

Mickie x
vonny

yes I did -wonder where that went. will send again
