Thanks MH and Woez. I'm good to go now. Got my Santa list now after logging out and a few clicks.

So exciter-ated.

So, ummm, I'm going to apologize now. I got covered in glitter just writing out the cards from the cards themselves.... blush

Does anyone else get extreme anxiety doing this and yet totally enjoy it?

God I am so anal. Like stressing whether the name on the envelope is exactly In The Middle (which I didn't measure out this time so I know they're not), to suddenly forgetting how to spell my own name and thrn habibg to cross my name off the list so i didnt write myself a card lol.

Of course the beautiful gold pen I bought is more yellow than gold and decided a few times to just NOT write. I was tempted to do everyone's card over with silver but I didn't have enough cards and I couldnt find the same card when I went out again.

At least they are done and will be shipped out this week. Yay.

(Again sorry for the coming glitter lol)

Mine are in the mail and should arrive later this week. Enjoy the glitterfest. Also look at the bottom of the padded envelope for some goodies for the elves smile .

I would rather adjust my life to your absence than adjust my boundaries to accommodate your disrespect.

MangledHeart,can you post a link to the Rules page where the address to send the cards is listed?

I think that's what still2suspicious needs.

Of course. Here are the rules. I read that right the first time, but got distracted and forgot what I was doing. laugh

My cards are ready to go. I have enough glitter to participate for the next two decades. grin

Thank you.

I have a stash of glitter and just topped up what I wanted to the glitter container. Went with larger glitter but added two packages of very fine stuff which just didn't show up in the spooning into the cards part. 🤔

I also glued my cards instead of taping them in the hopes less falls out in transport. grin

Well shit. I'm having the same issue as Chili. Hopefully it can get fixed...


ETA. Finally got it working. The log out, log in, log back out, log back in trick fixed it. Should of tried that first...now I'm going to have to explain what happened to the chicken.

This has not been uncommon through the years. (P.S.: Let me know if you come up with a good chicken explanation. I can always use one of those).

Just finished with my stack here. I should have been working, but card fun is a much sweeter gig.

Sent my cards off today.

It's my first year and I mailed my cards priority mail a few days ago and they should arrive Friday.

My goal was to follow the rules and get the cards out, which I did, and I feel great. I hope nobody misses the glitter.

Baby steps.

Dear lord, I almost messed this up!
I had planned to write and send my cards this sunday but I forgot they have to be received by the 1st of December and since I'm in Europe, it's going to take longer.
Writing them tonight and sending them first thing tomorrow morning.

I have already sent the postage through 'donating'

Part of me is relieved it's only 26 people because less stress laugh

In 2020 I wrote elaborate messages, I won't be able to do that this time but I'll make up for it in glitter! XD

OK, I am the scumbag who has signed a couple of times, but "life" has in one way or another contributed to my letting the deadline get behind me.

Can someone tell me how I get the lists of the people to whom I am sending my cards?

I still can’t figure out how it all works, but, by God, I will be participating this year!
