I received more cards today...I am a tad behind on getting mine assembled and sent out in the mail, I have a lot of pen pals that I am trying to get too, but have had a lot happen and will be happening too. A friend of mine's DH(who is also my DH best friend) is leaving for Iraq soon, so we are trying to spend as much time with them as possible. Thank you for understanding. Cause next month it will be my DH's turn to leave for Iraq.

I will get as many cards out as possible this week.

Happy Stampin
Tammy

Tammy, of course your family comes first!! Please say a heartfelt "THANK YOU" to your hubby and his friend from the Smith family for guarding and protecting this country! I am sure they don't hear it enough! And thank you the family for your support of them! I know it must be heart wrenching to watch them leave... My prayers are with you all...
May God bless and keep..

I get the feeling alot of people are feeling pressure about this pen pal stuff--It was originally started by Lana to be able to send and recieve cards and meet new people, and to not be pressured into having to make "x" amount of cards by "x" day. Do not feel like you HAVE to make cards for EVERYONE on the list just pick out as many as you think you can handle. Remember this is supposed to be fun and not stressful and you shouldn't be having concerns about not making cards for EVERYONE. We all have lives outside of stamping and sometimes things come up when we don't have any time to make cards and then there will be times when you have plenty of extra time to make cards. So just do what you can handle.

I've been out of town this week end and just looked at the site. Thanks so much Tara for you comment, I couldn't have said it better. Please to feel pressured, this was meant to be fun and I'm sure everyone will understand if they don't get a card from everyone. I really wasn't expecting so may replys to my first post, but I am loving it. I still have ladies that want to join. I'm not sure if I should stop at a certain point or just keep adding. What do you all think about that? I so hate to turn anyone away but let me know how you all feel about. Thanks again Tara.

Take care and enjoy your day.

I had a thought...... could you divide the list up into groups maybe with so many in a group and that group could send to each other? That way maybe it wouldn't be so hard to come up with lots of cards and everyone would still get cards...
just a thought....
God bless

I figure too once it really gets going everyone will write at different times and it will stagger itself out.
And thanks to Debi for your card today - loved the colors!

With the list growing so large I don't know if I will be able to send to a card to everyone so I started sending out cards randomly, some from the beginning of the list, some from the middle and a few at the end.

Maybe something that could be done with the list growing so fast is that people could send a card to the 3 people above their name on the list and to the 3 people below their name on the list. That's only 6 cards and everyone will at least get a few cards that way...plus you can send additional cards to others if you want. Its just a thought

Just another opinion...

I really like how unstructured this is right now...I enjoyed looking through the list and selecting a penpal who lives in my hometown (of many years ago) and one whose birthday is coming up. I don't think I would enjoy "assigned" pen pals nearly as much.

I am really pressed for time (gotta get to work and can't access this at work) but just wanted to say thanks for the cards. I have gotten 4 so far and I made 5 this weekend which I will send out tomorrow. I am just checking them off my list and will get around to sending out to everyone eventually. I love the randomness of it tho. Thanks everyone, and I feel better now and no more pressure because I'm sure everyone understands!

I like the way it is too, but I understand some don't have the time to send to everyone. So please do what your comfortable with, I know we all will understand. I will keep sending to everyone, but it's really ok if I don't get a card back from you. I just love sending cards. So I'll also keep letting any one join, they'll just know some don't have the time to send to everyone. The one's that want to keep getting an update please pm me.

Have a good one,

Lana aka Kota48

I don't think the rules should change either!!
I really enjoy that there are no set rules and it is more carefree!
We all understand that not everyone is going to get 30 plus cards every week--but just to get a few now and again is so nice. and of course it
seems like a lot right now because everyone is trying to get a card to everyone right away--but in the next month or so things will spread out and maybe you will only send 1 or 2 cards a week, or whatever fits into your life at the time. I know for myself I will be able to send more cards after the summer when both DS's are back in school--right now I am busy keeping them busy and running them to their fun things-- so right now I am just doing what I can when I can.

Tammy, I am sorry to hear that your DH and your best friends hubby is leaving. I can't imagine sending my DH away to another country. My father was in Desert Storm and it was hard when he was gone. God Bless your family and your friends family, you both will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks Carrie & Michelle for the cards today they were beautiful!!!!

I also would like to comment on the stamping pen pals. I really like the way it is set up already. I will totally understand if everyone can't send me a card each month. At the present time I have extra time on my hands to send out cards so I will continue to send cards to everyone. But, when soccer season starts I might not be able to send as many. I hope everyone has a great day!

Crystal

We are still in a holding pattern. Waiting for the surgeon to set a date. DH is still in hospital but in feeling better and in good spirits. They don't want to do the bypass if his heart is too week, but they don't want to wait too long either. Hoping to hear by tomorrow..........
