What about emails to send them out on line in July as an option? There are many amazing ecard sites that are free.
I love the idea of doing it online, Star! I would participate in this!

Sounds great - I am board if we would do the online or maybe just do a few people. I have my DH and kids birthdays in the summer plus vacations. I can save up for the Christmas one!

Okay, I think this can work. This doesn't have to be a big thing; certainly nothing like the scale of the Christmas one.

What I think I'll do is get the people who are interested to send me both their addresses - snail mail and email. I will then send everyone a list of the email addresses and each person will get one randomly chosen snail mail address. Speaking for myself, I know I always have one or two left over cards and it is WAY easier and cheaper to send just one!!!! You don't have to send a real card but if you choose to, then you only have one person to send it to.

What do you think????

I like that idea and I would love to receive at least one real Christmas card and it would be easier to just send out one.

I am just wondering if those who want to participate should clarify they ONLY want to do e-cards and find out for those who WILL send snail mail. So for those who are sending snail mail can get each others name who plan to participate in that? I think what I am getting at is whoever gets my name I really want snail mail! I just find it more personal and fun to have that card to display in July verses deleting an e-card after it's read. That's just me. =)

For those who have zero interest in mailing out cards will stay strictly on the e-card list? For those who want snail mail can do both?

Am I making any sense? I know what I am trying to say but not sure it makes sense when I type this out. Maybe you meant all this already. Sorry, I have not finished drinking my coffee so I am not quite awake!

I just love this idea! Thanks for coming up with it!

Personally, I love the idea of sending a card out....I would do it! But I would also like to send emails to all....so could we be assigned one person to send a "real" one to and then receive the list of emails so we can send to all?

Exactly! I would like to do both as well. I think my post sounds like I only want to mail out a card only.
