Holiday Card Exchange '19

The time has come to think about the Card Exchange. I'd like to do this again since it's so much fun for the GRF family members who want to participate.



This is how it works...
Send a Private Message with your information to me, Ivyacres.

I'll let you know I have your info by sending you a PM message saying 'Got It'.
I will then add each name to the requested list(s).
Then everyone who has signed up will get a PM from me on November 30th with the list(s) you requested.



The initial PM should include your name and address, e-mail if necessary AND the member's name use here so folks would know that
Jane Doe at 1 Golden Way, Anywhere, USA is 'love_my_golden' (fake name).

Also include your pet's name(s) and which lists you want to be on, US, Canada, International, e-mail, all.


There are usually a few lists, one for US Members exchange,
another for Canadian Members Exchange, another for International Members Exchange and one for members doing e-mail exchanges.
Each member has to specify the list they want to be on and please commit to exchanging cards with everyone on that list.

I am all signed up and looking forward to seeing others sign up. It is so much fun and I love having all the cards on display on the wall in my entry way for all who come to see. Below is my cards from the last 4 years. Probably not in order, but the one of Great Pyrenees Sir Moose and golden Retriever in differnt snaps is the first one. We lost Sophie the following Oct. but I so loved this picture I had of her and Sir Moose I used it for my cards. The net year, different shots of Sir Moose. Then the one of him laying with his stocking in the back ground is fromlast year. I had the cards made up and already had them---and we lost him Dec. 5. I sent the cads anyway.

I’m so excited to join in again this year! My teenager was just asking over the weekend if we’d be having the exchange. It’s such a boost to the crazy holiday season.

Yes, it makes checking the mail extra special.

The postage rate in the US is $0.55 for a card, international cards are $1.15.


I'll try to get the postal rates for Canada and other countries....
