Yay! I signed up.

Somehow I thought they were virtual cards all this time.

Thanks for the glitter warning.

Thank you everyone for your wisdom and healing.

Embrace the glitter! Learn to love the glitter! That way you can giggle when you see sparkles between the floorboards six months later.

I was rearranging some furniture a couple weeks ago and found some of my dick-shaped glitter from 2020 under my couch laugh laugh laugh

Well all, this is definitely a bittersweet year. You all know how involved HT and I have been in the card exchange over the years. It is an event that means a lot to the both of us. It was 10 years ago that we first did the card exchange and became friends with MangledHeart and DeeplyScared. Since her passing, it is a tradition that I have held dear to my heart in honor of her.

Sadly, this year we will not be able to participate. We will be elves, but many of you will notice the change of address. HT and I are taking a huge leap this year and selling our home to begin living the dream of traveling. We are putting our house up for sell next week. It could sell in a day or it could sell in months. Right now we just can’t take on any extra.

I have been honored to host the card exchange for the past several years. I have glitter in nooks and crannies everywhere. The new owners will probably be finding it for years (hopefully not dick shaped ones!)

I am not sure where the road will take us, but maybe we will be able to participate again next year.

That all said, we will enjoy being an elf this year and the festivities that go with it!

The card exchange is such a fun tradition. I encourage you to participate.

Inconnu! So good seeing you - big huge happy smiling seeing your name on this thread. Hope you do put on that wee elven hat again this year.

Woez: You guys have been incredible troopers in keeping this tradition going all these years. The exchange has meant so much to me and others here I know. 1000 best wishes and three cheers for your new beginnings.

MH and anyone else taking the reigns this year: hit me up if'n I can do anything to help from my neck of the woods.

And to anyone considering signing up - it really is something to get that big stack of holiday cheer every year.

WOES, you have done so much all these years. I'm so glad you are taking the leap and traveling.

Ok so I have kept my glitter supply in a Tupperware on the top of a cabinet in the kitchen. The other day it "magically" leapt from its spot onto the kitchen floor....thank goodness for a secure top!

Yes. All participants should be able to see the list here.

I apologize! The form is available again. Either way, you will be added because you spoke up before the deadline.

Thanks so much for fixing the form! I signed up and am excited to participate again!

Just wanted to double-check the postage - mine is showing up as $1.40, but I'm in the U.S. - is that right?

Thanks again!

Woez: thanks for the confirming I'm signed up.

I got this access denied message from the secret door keeper elves when I clicked on the hideout link:

Sorry. This list is only available to participants, Santa and the elves.

As long as I have the listy by the time I put cards together, I'm good.

Thank you everyone for your wisdom and healing.

That was probably due to me not yet updating the postage when you viewed the list. They should all be accurate now.

Chili, please try logging out/in again and let me know if you still have a problem.
