    thank you for participating.

    without participants, this would be in vain

    kinda like running 25,000 lights in a tree, yard, etc only to find out there is no electricity - kinda pointless

    1 To help international locations get cards in the mail because it often takes longer to get mail to the USA, and through the system then sending mail out of the USA. This was a Great idea supplied by Kirk1701.
    2 verification emails go out to make sure all your information is correct, including email address, and to make sure that the automated process works correctly. Your help with this is GREATLY appreciated.
    3 If everything goes well, those that have supplied emails should receive their emails with lists attached by 1300 (1:00pm) CST
    4 This is an automated process and should be complete by 1300 (1:00PM) CST. Those that have requested the FULL list will be sent first, followed by verified participants, then those remaining.

    Happy Blinky-Flashy

    The 12th annual DIYC Christmas Card Swap is
    open
    .
    There has already been a quite an interest. SO, it looks like this might be a another pretty good year . If you PM’d or emailed me BEFORE October 1st, Please do so again as my inboxes have been cleaned out.

    So what’s a Christmas Card Swap? You submit your name and address, your details are then given to other people in the swap and you’re given 10 other names and addresses. You then send those 10 people a Christmas Card and you’ll also receive Christmas Cards from other people. Easy.

    I haven’t kept any names from previous years, so if you would like to participate again you will have to resubmit your details. Cost is a pack of cards – this can be as cheap or as expensive as you like, there’s nothing wrong with a pack of $2 cards – and the cost of postage to some local and some international destinations. There is no guarantee on the final cost of postage - you could end up with a lot of international post, especially if there aren't a lot of participants from your neck of the woods. Hopefully your postal service offers discounted postage for seasonal mail.

    To participate in the Card Swap PM me your NAME, SCREEN NAME (if you would like it included – if you don’t type your screen name it will not be revealed to other participants), POSTAL ADDRESS and EMAIL ADDRESS (so your list can be emailed to you – if you do not supply an email address, your list will be sent here via PM), and a preference as to how you would like your address to appear to others (If you do not supply a choice then family will be used). In the past people have included their spouse's name or specified "The Smith Family", this is quite alright to do. So if you would like cards addressed specifically to you and a partner or your family, please mention it in your PM. Please see below for some examples.


    Because of the positive replies, like last year, there will be a special email address to email your 2019 Christmas Card Swap details to. This will be the same email address where your lists will come from as well as an email confirmation if requested. Email confirmations will typically be faster as they are automated and do not involve logging in this server. For those wanting use email, here is the email address. DIYCards@keeblerchristmas.com with the subject line: JOIN 2019. When using this method, you should receive a confirmation within seconds.

    Due date will be SUNDAY 17TH NOVEMBER at 12:00 noon CST, and names will be handed out by FRIDAY 22ND NOVEMBER. Names will not be kept and your details will be deleted at the end of December. Each year I get one or two people who swear black and blue they got their name in before the due date but if I don't have a record of their PM or email. I won't be accepting any late comers it's just too hard to include. I always send a PM (OR EMAIL) confirming I have received your details, if you don't receive a PM from me confirming receipt of your details within 2 days assume I didn't get your original PM and send it again. If you emailed your details, and you did not receive a confirmation email within a 2 hours, please check your junk folder first, and if the confirmation is not there, please try again. If I don't have you in my inbox or a confirmation PM in my sent items, sorry you missed the boat and you'll have to wait for next year.

    I'm always asked if it's possible to get the whole list to send cards to everyone not just 10 people. That's not a problem, 10 has been chosen to make it easy for lots of people to participate (you already know how expensive Christmas lights as a hobby can be!), be aware that some years the full list was over 50 participants. If you'd like to send everyone on the list a card, just let me know in your PM that you'd like the entire list.

    Hope as many people as possible participate, it's becoming more popular each year – guaranteed to make you look windswept and interesting as you receive cards from across the world!!

    Here are examples of some of the most common examples for addressing

    if you select then your address will look like
    both NCmas1225
    Nick Christmas
    101 Present Ln
    North Pole AK 00001
