I just told my kids that the cards were from my friends

This would work with my two boys. The girl, however....let me give you an idea of how that convo would go:

DD: Who are all these cards from?
Me: My friends.
DD: What friends?
Me:Friends I met online.
DD: Online? Where online? Can I go to the website? What's the website about? I want to read it! Can I read it? (All said with one breath)
Me:No it's something private for just me.
DD: Why? I want to see! And why do these people have weird names? Why is that person sad and mad? What do they mean Deeply Scared? Was she in some kind of accident? How many tattoos does TCD have? Can I get a tattoo?

She's 11 and exhausting.

But I do love spreading Christmas cheer so I'll think about it.

Tred already signed us up

We had so much fun writing and opening the cards! We laughed with tears in our eyes, not realizing how much the glitter can impact the messages sent!

Our son asked about the cards because we keep them seperate from others, and we told him they were from friends we have in an online community. He was a 14 year old boy so no further questions were asked, lol. This year our 23 yr old daughter will be home and I am sure she will ask more questions as I know she will read them and wonder about the names. But whatever, it is TOTALLY worth it!!!

We had so much fun that we put glitter in our regular cards!! Tred's boss loved that!

Now, to find that good sticky glitter...

...damn auto correct

Anyone have a ballpark guesstimate of how many cards we will need?

I believe there were 63 people/couples to sign up last year. The list has been growing for the last couple of years, though.

She hears it often enough, but rarely accepts it as an answer. I'm still thinking about it though.

I am definitely in. Just ran across the last 3 years of bagged card glitter when reorganizing the storage room

Ok, I have no idea how I have I missed this phenomenon for the past three years. It sounds like way too much fun to miss out on another year!

Just a heads up for everyone who needs to get cards.....I saw an ad for Hallmark. B1G1 on all their boxed sets of cards. I think it goes through Oct. 23, but I'm not 100% on that.

I've noticed that my PM to the Card Exchange is still unread. I hope I wasn't disqualified because I didn't use glitter last year.

My PM is unread too, so you aren't alone. And I didn't participate last year, so rest assured it's not about lack of glitter usage- lol!
