Christmas Postcard Exchange

Post by TRavine »

So, Fossy and I are sending Christmas postcards to each other, and Pippa is sending some too.

Since we are from all over, I think it's a nice thing to get a card from another Country. That's why I wanted to ask if anyone else would like to send and/or receive a card?

If you're up for it, just let me know. We can exchange addresses via pm. If you don't want to give your address (which I can understand), I can send a card to your email as well. It's not the same as a real one, but better than nothing.

Maybe not all the cards will arrive in time for Christmas (depending on where you live and post services), but you'll get them soon either way.

I've shared my address with everyone in this topic (and anyone else who joins in) but please don't feel you have to send anything just because I sent my address !!

That would be a good wheeze wouldn't it. I could share it with everyone on the whole board and add 'just in case anyone wants to send me anything.....' :rofl

Aw, how wonderful, merry. Can't wait for yours too. 😃 :cuddle

As for me, I had bought postcards with Christmas and one with Latvia, but I want buy one more and maybe two yet with Ogre, but the thing is that that for my work I can't get to the postcard shop again and I need stamps too, so I think that I'll sent them only in January after New Year. Then all will be peaceful and I can to get to the shop and doing what I need yet. Sorry, guys, for this. I hope this will be ok for all (ok, I have only Tom's and Merry's addresses 😁). Just be patiently waiting! :up

My photocards arrived today. I sent off a third of my internationals yesterday...but not in time to go out that night, because the dude that was supposed to pick it up wouldn't pick up the very last minute drop-offs, of which I was one after having to wait super long to buy my stamps (international, US, and Cdn). Anyway, because it is December, they'll go out tonight.

But can you believe it that I don't know where to buy postcards? I'll keep looking. Hopefully I 'll find them soon!

I got my card from Tom! :love

It was so lovely and he has much nicer handwriting than I do! He'll never be able to read mine - none of you will :sob

I even liked the stamp, which featured a pair of boots, which I spend half my life in of course (horses.)
