Happy Spring!

Cherry blossoms, tulip bulbs, and mosquitos are all springing back into life!
It is a beautiful time to exist where ever you are thriving right now. To celebrate one of the most beautiful seasons, Veggieboards is throwing a postcard exchange!




Please PM this account your Name, mailing address, and how many postcards you are willing to send
.

SIGN UPS ARE OVER, MATCHES HAVE BEEN MADE.

I would love it if everyone could get a whole bunch, I think it would be more fun, but that's only possible if you are willing to send several. Make note if you are able to send internationally, and if there is any user(s) you do not want to receive your address. 
If you have any comments, questions, concerns please PM this account, or any of the mods and we will work through it.
Homemade post cards are wonderful, fun, creative, and highly encouraged. The best (or most fun) postcards are those which convey the feeling/themes of your town or city. 
Important Dates:

Sign ups stretch from March 2, 2014 to March 14th, 2014. Matches will be made March 15th and 16th. All postcards should be mailed by March 25, 2014.

Okay so I'm totally rubbish at this sort of thing but I think it sounds like a lovely idea :)  I am a total airhead so I miss posting deadlines every single time :(

 

Count me in (but don't expect to receive anything until Christmas!)

 

I promise to try my best :o

I would like to sign up for the postcard exchange too. Is this there where I sign up? I prefer to mail in the USA only as postage rates are too costly elsewhere.

Hi vegangal55 :)

 

If you send a PM (private message) to the thread starter (Santa Helper) then you can sign up.

 

In the PM you need to give your name, address, the fact you want to send in the USA only and let them know how many postcards you are willing to send.

Just a gentle reminder, today and tomorrow are the last days to signed up. Matches will be made promptly March 15th and 16th, so be aware. 

 

I am thrilled with how many people are opting to take part in this, and would like to thank everyone wholeheartedly.

As it happens, the very tired elf is being drug of on some personal business. She has finished sending out just over half the messages and will finish the second half tomorrow morning... stayed tuned folks, and sorry for the inconvenience!

Santa informed me laziness won't be tolerated, not even on spring break!

All matches have been sent out, if you did not receive yours or there is a mistake* please PM this account.





*Some international addresses look different, but I checked everything very thoroughly lest santa beat me more.

Thanks Elf!

 

I just realised I forgot to put my country in my address so if you are writing to Joy M then I'm in the UK :)

Handwriting? What's that? Surely you mean mass-produced and typed, yes?

Tomorrow it's going to be a warm 56 degrees in Chicago, so I'll pop out and get my postcards then. They'll be mailed by this weekend most likely.

Just posted mine. It took me ages to think of things to actually write on them, so apologies if they're really dull!

I have addressed mine, so I'll just get them to the post office and stamped. My recipients should be receiving theirs in the next few days.
