I've signed up. I can't believe how quickly this has come around again! At the start of the year I started searching for supplies to make my cards, and I had grand plans to buy a certain amount of postage stamps each month to spread out the cost. And now here we are in OCTOBER for crying out loud, and I've done NOTHING! Oh, I did buy one lot of postage stamps but of course I have no idea where I put them. And I ordered some Aussie Christmas themed return address stickers but again, I have no idea where I put them!
This sounds like a lot fun! I have already started making my cards. When does everyone typically send them out? I should be done by the middle of November with all mine.
I send my international cards right before Thanksgiving and my state cards from Thanksgiving weekend on. My plan last year and was almost executed was to mail all my state cards Thanksgiving weekend....but gave my cards to hubby to mail and a stack of them got left in his patrol car. So half went out after Thanksgiving and the others went out the first week of December.
Thank you for putting this together! I loved the year I participated, didn't have time last year, but this year I am in!! My whole family was excited to check out the mail each day, can't wait for that again!!
I did this in one of the earlier years and really enjoyed it. I haven't done it since, but I just signed up. I am looking forward to it. Now I just have to get to making cards. I can't promise that they will all be hand made, but I will send to everyone.
If anyone is looking for holiday address labels, Colorful Images currently has a sale for 10% off AND $1.99 shipping. That means you can get one of the $8.99 sets for about $10.09. If you get two sets, it's about $17 (you get an extra dollar off per set if you buy two or more sets).
The coupon code is ERPL7H.
They're not my favorite company in terms of tracking/shipping/ease of use--I've had some bumps with them-- but I've always liked their labels and they've always been printed correctly.
ETA: sale is good til October 8, 2017 at 11:59 pm MT.
