Zoo Xmas Card Exchange 2015

Recommended Posts

I would love to do it as have done for years but unfortunately cannot afford to do it this year. Will miss it :(

I'm in again too! I love my Zoo Xmas cards!

 

Julie if I may make a suggestion, would it be possible to group the names by country on the list? What I've always done in previous years after getting the list is copied and pasted into a new document by country so that when I go to the post office it's easier to know how much postage is needed for each country. It has saved a lot of time for that part.

 

Thanks for volunteering Julie and please let me know if I can help in any way! :)

 

Can I please put up a counter suggestion to the above?  From the perspective of the rule about 'sending to the person below you on the list', I would prefer to have the countries mixed up (I think it's usually done in order of signing up?), as there's more liklihood of receiving a card from (and sending a card to) another country, which to me, is more exciting than sending/receiving within my own country.  Completely understand the time saving side of the above suggestion when dealing with the post office, but as it's easy enough to re-sort the list for this purpose, I think it's a nicer experience to have the countries mixed up for sharing cards around the world.  Just my two cents... :)

 

Anyway, thank goodness for timezones, as I've managed to see this in the nick of time to join in (just got back from Belfast)!

Got the list eventually, despite a few initial issues with the emails. Thanks Julie for sorting it all out. 

 

I recognise some names from last year and there are others that are new to the list. Next step will be to buy cards and start getting them sent out  :)

Always a great Holiday tradition!  I missed the cut off date as well (I am seeing if I might be able to get a copy of the list anyway to send some cards out)

 

Regardless - I want to wish you all a Happy Holiday Season!  I am on this site regularly but do not post much - There is a great group of fans here and I am glad to be a part of the group!

I'm late :(

 

We can always add you to our lists.

 

You were on last year's list and so were you U2FanInVT. I still have that with both of your details on. Are you both still at the same addresses as last year? If so, I'll add you to my copy of this year's list and I'm sure other Zootops can do the same  :)
