Happy Friday!

I have a few errands to do this morning as we have our annual Christmas Party tomorrow night for friends--22 are coming. I have some grocery shopping to do and then a couple of things to make--mini cheesecakes and put a roast in the slow cooker for shredded beef sandwiches. I also hope to spend some time in the craft room.

Have a great day!

Where are you headed? I'm reading SA as South America. Hope that's correct! I took student to Peru in June 2011. That was my first trip to SA and Peru. I wanted to go to Ecuador this coming summer with students, but the cost was too prohibitive. We're heading to Costa Rica for two weeks (my 3rd trip there). I'm jealous of your travels! Have a great time!

You got it--thanks!

Jackie--since you are new to swapping, I might offer a suggestion--It is cheaper for you to use a Priority Flat Rate envie to send these to me since you have 20 some cards being sent. These envies are free at your post office and the rate right now is $5.15--not sure if it is going up in January. Then, for the return, just send me the flat rate stamp, a label that you have addressed to you--I will get the envie here to mail the cards back to you. Easy Peasy..................................

My postal lady is notorious for *smashing* envelopes in our box so I'd rather send them in a box to keep them safe. I'm in a monthly swap with 10 other ladies & I found this out the hard way so it's boxes for me from now on

I don't mind paying a lil' extra for piece of mind if that's ok with you

That is fine--whatever works for you. I have found that the Priority flat rate envies seem to hold up pretty well though--but a box is sure much stronger!

Good Morning--hope you are having a great Sunday.

Our party last night was very nice--lots of laughs, good food and friends! Everything is already back in its place. I am working on sending out our Christmas Cards today--they will be postal tomorrow. It is a bit of a short week for me as I am headed to San Antonio on Friday for the National AD Convention and will not be back until the 19th. I love that city as the Riverwalk is so nice and the temps are usually good too. I am looking forward to the trip and the convention--I am going to start a term on a new committee that was formed, so that will be interesting.

I will take my laptop along, but if some of you can keep this thread bumped and answer any questions, that would be great! If any cards come during the time I am gone, I will post when I get back. I will also add any new swappers whenever I get online. Thanks!

I has been kind of quiet in the threads the past week or so as everyone gets ready for Christmas. I want to post a link to a thread about a Ronald McDonald House swap that was just started. Here is the link: New and Open--Ronald McDonald House Of the Month Swap 2013. The way this swap works is that each month, someone who has a RMH in their area that they have adopted, is a hostess and will receive 12 cards of various themes from each swapper. The swapper is donating all cards and will not get any in return. The hostess is then going to take all of the donated cards to their local RMH for the families and staff to use. We would love to have you join us--pick a month or two or even try to commit for the entire year. The cards do not all have to be the same, so if you want to use some of your "stash", that works great too. Each month the hostess has some suggested themes of cards she would like to take to her house.

Please feel free to check out the thread and if you have any cards you might want to donate, please send them to that hostess in a month you choose. Thanks for helping us out! You can PM me if you have any questions or you could ask Linda, as she started the thread.

Hello Ladies--hope your Thursday is going well. I have had a great day--went to breakfast with the "boys" this morning, got a haircut, stopped at the LSS to pick up our winter swap of 18 cards and then I went to my demos house for a holiday open house--a couple of make and takes, some great soups and a cute hostess gift of special hot chocolate! I finished packing for my trip to San Antonio and I am sure I will be in bed early tonight as we need to leave the house by 4:30 tomorrow morning. I am taking my laptop along, so I will check in when I can.

If any cards come while I am gone, I will update the end of next week. If anyone wants to join, I will add next time I am online. If anyone has a question, I am sure someone here will help. Please keep this bumped as needed. Thanks!
