Hi, Cauldronites.

As has been suggested by a couple of members in the Holidays thread, The Cauldron will be doing a Winter Holiday Card Exchange for the first time this year.

Here's how it works:

Anyone interested in participating should PM or email me by midnight (US Eastern Time), November 30.

Include your mailing address, and tell me if you are willing to be paired with someone in a different country (which will mean you'll have to spend more in postage).


Then I'll take all the names and do a random draw to set each participant up with a recipient.  Nobody would receive a card from the same person they're assigned to send to.  I will PM the name and address of your recipient to you by December 6.

Cards can be handmade or store bought.  They must be sent in time to arrive at their destination by December 18.

If anyone wants to include a small, inexpensive, handmade gift, that is OK, but not required.  Enclosures must be something that could fit inside the card and it's normal envelope, and not require any extra packaging.  Nothing breakable or perishable.  (I'm envisioning something along the lines of origami, pipe cleaner decorations, drawings, poetry, a postcard, a photo, a pressed flower, or something like that.  It's important that nobody feels pressured to spend more than a few dollars on this exchange.)

Participation in the card exchange is strictly voluntary.  By contacting me with your address, you are acknowledging that The Cauldron is not responsible for any problems that might result from participation in the exchange.


If you're interested, PM or email me by midnight (US Eastern Time), November 30.

Any questions?  Post them here.

~ Aster

I modified this part of the message to use the forum's email system rather than give an email address as doing it this way will limit participation to actual members of the forum.

I've received a couple of questions about what name to use for the card exchange -- that is, whether participants should provide their TC screen names or their real names (i.e., legal names).

Answer:  Whichever you prefer.   Cheesy

If you are not comfortable providing your real name, AND you are confident that a card sent to your screen name will be properly delivered, you may simply give me your TC screen name and your real ("snail mail") address.

So, f'ex, that would be something like:
Aster Breo
123 Anyplace Road
Somecity, STATE 12345
USA


OR, if you prefer to provide your real name -- perhaps because you aren't sure whether a card would be delivered to your screen name, that would be something like:
Jane Doe
123 Anyplace Road
Somecity, STATE 12345
USA


OR, you can cover all the bases, and provide both:
Jane Doe (Aster Breo)
123 Anyplace Road
Somecity, STATE 12345
USA


If you have any questions about this or any other aspect of the card exchange, please post them here.   Smiley

I'm going to bump this thread every now and then until the deadline, just to make sure as many people as possible see it.

So far, we have about a dozen participants, from a variety of countries.  This is going to be fun!

That's great! I'm going to work on my card this weekend. Time to brainstorm creative ideas.
