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????
Didn't I say that??? I meant to say that.........!!!

We'll thrash out the finer points closer to the time but my intention was that everybody can do email and those that want to can send snail.......

I'm going to have to work on my clarification skills

I guess I thought that you meant everyone gets ONE mailing address regardless if they want to participate in snail mail or not and if they chose NOT to, they can disregard the mailing address they received.

So I just meant those who choose to mail out a real card would sign up just like we did on the ornament exchange. Those who are doing e-cards only do not sign up for that part.

Sorry, I just misread it and that's what you meant all along.

It's all good and it will be fun!

Note to self: No reading or posting before coffee! =)

It's not you and your lack of caffeine; it's me and my lack of clarity!!!!!

From the feedback I've been getting from people, I think everybody is up for sending 1 hardcopy Christmas card anyway so it looks like we've got a goer!!!!

I was MIA for a short time so I am not sure if this idea is still going through? I thought I would bump the thread for anyone who missed it and would like to be a part of it.

This is still very much on the go; I was actually thinking today that sometime within the first couple of weeks in June I'll start getting people to send me their snail mail/email addresses so I can get things ready for later in the month.

I already have 2 people signed up so we're on our way!!!!!!

I am signed up, right? Sorry, couldn't remember because of the family things that were going on with us for a few weeks. If I am not, I will send you my info.

Looking forward to it!
