Jo and Lucie

Hi everyone...just checking in!

02-21-2008, 11:46 PM
My daughter Babybluish would love to join this one. Please sign us up.

02-22-2008, 12:23 PM
My daughter Babybluish would love to join this one. Please sign us up.

No problem, how old is she?

02-22-2008, 03:04 PM
My daughter Amelia who is 9 would like to join in..

02-22-2008, 03:08 PM
She is 10. Would you like to know my age? I have worked very hard to reach this age gracefully. Why does everyone want to hide their age.:twitcy:

02-22-2008, 03:47 PM
ok so I'm new to this site. Sign my kids up please!

james 6

Ashley 9

Jillian 3

so that means I will be sending 9 cards total to dina54-Creature of the Night & then she sends them out to everyone? Thanks

02-22-2008, 05:49 PM

Yes, just follow the directions (SASE, names on cards etc) Send the whole thing to the address I will PM you, and about one week after the due date, everybody gets 3 cards (each) from 3 different artists for their collection!
If you want each child to get their own mail, make sure and send 3 SASEs!
Oh and FYI, my 10 year old grand-daughter Faith, is the un-official hostess of this swap :D

02-23-2008, 09:20 AM
I have received a request from SpiritFingers. She has a class with 20 kids who each want to make one card and get one in return, welcome kids!!!!

02-23-2008, 09:59 AM
FANTASTIC! welcome all!

02-23-2008, 02:20 PM
What do all of you think of my dividing the cards into rough age groups like maybe 10 and over, and under 10? Just an idea. (It would make it easier for your gracious hostess to swap out :unsure:)

Spirit Fingers
02-23-2008, 04:44 PM
I think that sounds like a great idea! If that is decided I will bundle my cards in 2 lots to make it easy for you!

02-24-2008, 09:12 AM
Welcome Mouse and Sweet Pea!

02-28-2008, 05:40 AM

Im sending them today. If they are to late please dont wait. Thanks

Normally I don't wait too long for late cards, but since we are dealing with children here, I don't want to disappoint anyone! i am willing to wait a few more days for stragglers. Hope that's OK with everyone.

04-02-2008, 10:50 PM
Thanks your not to far from me. So you should get them in a day.

04-03-2008, 09:45 AM

Arteeztmom, Grace's cards are here. Thanks for the extra!
Still waiting for Liverson, CherryBomb, Zippy and jckay.
I will wait to see what Monday's mail brings then I HAVE to swap these out, sorry.
I do not know if SwampGirl is a member here. I could not find that user name listed.

04-05-2008, 06:19 PM
jckay67, Lucie's cards are here (and they were worth the wait!)
I will swap these Monday after I see if anyone else's cards come in the mail that day.

04-07-2008, 02:36 PM
Liverson's daughter's cards are here. That's all folks! I am swapping these out (THAT should take a while!!!!!!:wacko: ) Wish me luck.

04-08-2008, 09:23 AM
Good Luck. Have fun.

Cody is so excited, he can't wait to see the returns.

04-09-2008, 12:50 PM
Thanks for playing everyone. I HOPE I didn't send anyone back their own cards but in case I did, let me know and Faith will make a replacement. This was a really complicated swap! (Mine always are it seems...:goofy:)
