Katie... so glad you changed your mind... Krista’s suggestion of purchased cards works great... especially when there is so much on our plates some months.
We’re glad you’re joining in the fun.

Another quick and simple idea is to buy inexpensive Christmas tags and put one in the
middle of a plain white card. You could even add a grouping of 3 sequins somewhere or use
foam dimensionals to give the tag a 3D look but you don't even really need to use them, just
tape or glue it to the card. I've seen some really pretty Christmas gift tags in the stores for
maybe a dollar or two at the most. One package would probably be plenty. I made some of
these a few years back at a craft gathering and they were so cute. The tags we used did not
have "To or From" on the front, they opened up and we just cut the back off of them. It was
so easy and such great results!

As a child, we always cut out old Christmas cards (which we saved for years) and used them as tags. It was a fun and memorable experience. These days there are so many uses for old cards!

Some organizations like nursing homes collect cards for their resident to repurpose for giving. So many great things to do with these...Keep the ideas coming!

Welcome back Christa! You have a wonderful name! Lol!

I have started digging through my craft paper and supplies and started getting ideas on what I would like to make. I'm getting excited for the list of names!

I am finally finished! But I will not mail out until the first. Someone got my debit card info and played neck with my checking account. I had to get a new debit card and not use the account until this clears up, around the first.
Have a great day girls. We have sunshine!

I don't have everyone's address yet...but the names are on the envelopes waiting.

Today is the last day for sign ups. Any friends of friends interested? We’d love to have them join us!

I will send the list out very soon. Many people enjoy participating each month, so you may already have their names and addresses from last month.

Have a good week, safe travels to all who went somewhere for Thanksgiving.
Hugs...Mary

Hi Farmsisters,
I have had so much trouble with my computer. Currently I am using a friends computer. I have had 3 computers in this past year. Now it turns out my last one was a real dud. Company is suppose to have a new one to me be Wednesday. Please pray for success on this new one coming. The last 5 or 6 weeks have been torture without one.

Please sign me up for Christmas Card Swap.
I have loved loved all my cards the last couple of months. Wish I could have posted pictures. I do want to let each of you know I love your talent and creativity and all the cards mean so much to me. God Bless each one of you. Hope to get back on real soon.

Hugs and Giggles to all !
Love ya!

So glad that you’re with us Deborah... just in time#128149;

I think we all have endured the pains of technology...My favorite experience was when my cat chased a little mouse, who slipped in the back fan area of my desk top.He managed to execute himself on the electrical inside the computer. The sad part is that he also killed my mother boards. Dead computer.. I got a cheap,rebuilt system from my neighbor. Works, but a bit slow.

Don’t you love technology?

Sunshine thoughts and Hugs.
Mary

Mary, do you know if anyone, who knows about computers, can get the photos off the mother board from a dead computer? I have one somewhere that the guys at Staples removed from our computer that was killed by lightening several years ago.

Dang.. not personally... Might try Best Buy or see if there is a Geek Squad in your home town... might contact a local college that has a computer department..
Or be able to tell you someone who could.

Swap officially closed.

I’m compiling the lists as we speak, and hope to have them emailed very soon.

If anyone fails to receive a list, or sees a problem, please let me know as soon as possible. Maybe I can get this list out this month without three updates.LOL
Thank you all for joining in......

Hugs to all,
Mary
