I am making mine.
Overachiever.

No way in hell I was going to HAND MAKE 60-some-odd cards.
Word. Although I was looking at the craft store the other day and they had like basic cards that you can just embellish. You hit that sucker on a sale day and you'll save a mini fortune on cards. Course then you're screwed on time, glue, scrapbook paper, glitter, stamps, etc.

Honestly, jrc - I'm not sure. They had a pretty big variety of cards. I was looking for general Seasons Greetings/Happy Holidays type cards, and found LOTS of options right away, so I didn't look through everything.

I'm in too.

It's my first time.
So, the postage has to match the country it's going to right?
I'm in Canada.
I think the lion's share will be going to the continental USA so I have a few others that I send there as well.

I just don't know what I'm getting into with the "glitter".
A little wary there.

Also, will we be given a list of participants?

The postage will be in Canadian stamps so they can be mailed in the US?

I'm probably making this harder than it really is.
I have some lovely cards that I get free from various charities and I would like to send them out to some of the most helpful people I have ever had the good fortune to "meet".

Lola2kids...

For our international friends, once the list is posted of members participating, just calculate how much postage you'll need, include it with your package and I'll purchase the stamps and put them on your cards for you

I sometimes feel like I do that all by myself, so this will just be *another* trip to the PO to send out my package of cards.

ahh. ok. Thanks DS.
Personal cheque for postage made out to SI?

My 2 biggest fears...
not getting a response to posts on SI and...
not receiving any cards in the card exchange.

Bring on the glitter!!!

Is postage more for us in the US to send to international SIers? I will bring extra postage with me since I'm an elf , but how will people ensure their card get to everyone?

Knight...

When DS posts the list of who is participating, she will post how much postage you need of each card for the international folks.

You just put the right number of stamps on each envelope.

I can't remember from last year, but would those who celebrate Hanukkah let us know so that we can send Hanukkah cards to them if we'd like? I know jrc, but anyone else?

Another question from a newbie in the card exchange:

Approximately how much time do we have to work on the cards before sending the package to SI?

Thanks in advance!

Lemony,

The signups will close this Friday Nov. 8. DS typically has the list posted by the end of the signup weekend. So you will have from about Nov 11 until whenever you need to ship your package of all cards to Texas so that is arrives by Dec 5.
