Here's the cards I received the 1st year I participated (2009). It was the year I was going through my divorce, and it was such a wonderful thing to receive so much love and support in the mail, especially at Christmastime.

Last year I also had the privilege of being an elf, and helping DS and MH sort the gazillions of cards. It's really cool to know that I was helping get all that glitter to where it needed to go.

But I'm moving overseas and won't have my address until about the time the cards get sent out.

Full name and mailing address? Or just mailing address?
Just one other note about the name and address - the other participants in the card exchange will address their cards to you by screen name only. The name and address you put in your PM for the card exchange only get used by DS & MH to print the final mailing labels.

I'm going to expose my general christmas card ignorance here...but what's the norm? Warm greetings? Family photo? Glitter, obviously....

Well... I send Hanukkah cards, because I'm Jewish and I get Christmas cards and Hanukkah cards back... and I'm happy with any and all.

Some people write a personal message.

Some people sign their real names and SI names or just SI names.

I do a combo... I sign my real name w/ SI name on cards for people I know well and just my SI name on others.

Some cards I've gotten are "religious" most have not been. Most have cute or funny greetings.

Some very crafty people even make their own cards... my hats are off to them, I could never do it.

Some people put glitter. Some confetti, some nothing (me).

It's really a kinda friendly free for all...

ETA: Apparently I wear more than one hat! but it's funny so I ain't gonna fix it.

Well heck. I can't sign up for this because you people all know that I hate glitter.....which means that I will get 5x the glitter in every card...

I almost posted about this a few weeks ago! Because I. AM. READY.

Life has been very difficult these last few months, and I am so ready for some Xmas cheer! Last years glitter (from the cards I received) have been in a ziplock bag and pinned to my bulletin board all year. That mojo is some good stuff!

So, count me in! Will pm address, etc.


I'm Happy, not Sad!

I put all the glitter from last year in a jar and put it on our accessory shelf in our closet. Every time we walk in there, we see the sparkles of love and friendship from fellow SIers.

For any newbies....

See the size of that "glitter" up there? Do not be fooled. CERTAIN people <ahem>broevil/chicho/and a few others I can't remember at the moment<cough> apparently DELIGHT in sending the teeniest, FINEST, STICKIEST (OMG) glitter you will ever see! It settles on your skin and gives you a nice green/red/blue/purple sheen. It covers your furniture. It sparkles in your nightmares!

Take heed of the warnings to open your envelopes OVER YOUR SINK, or SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES!

I put all my cards up last year on the wall over my couch, in the shape of a heart, and, yep, I still have glitter on the wall. Cannot get it off! But, it makes me happy.

I've been a lurker the last six months or so...too much has been going in my life to coherently talk about. I'm just trying to get through each day. Last year was my first "official" year without XWH (previous few years he was here in body, but not in spirit). I thought it would be devastating. It was not! It was great, actually....just me and my boys. And all the SI love.

If you are a newbie and not sure about this...DO IT. You will not be sorry, and it will give you smiles that last the entire year!

Edited for typos...
