  1. 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 exper
  2. ...and two more cards arrived today! BIG thank yous to; illumination70 - thanks for the recipe...I can't cook to save myself, but I've a friend who fancies himself as a bit of a MasterChef, so I think I'll challenge him to make some for me for St Paddy's Day. redandwhitepebble - thank you my love...I always look forward to seeing how you stage your U2 dolls for your cards, and is that your Zoo Name namesake I see in there too?!?
  3. Three more cards arrived! They actually arrived yesterday, but my internet was broken, so I had to to wait for it to get fixed before I could post these additional thank yous... lailaketo - Glædelig Jul, and hugs from Australia right back atcha! What are the chances that I would get 2 pieces of mail from Denmark yesterday?!? (the other was from Billund...given my avi picture, can you guess who from, haha!) TerriB. - love the super cheerful picture and matching sentiment on your card, thanks! U2FanInVT - was really lovely to be able to read a little bit about you and where you live...
  4. Figured I'd wait until after New Year's before posting my thank yous, as I seemed to get more cards after Xmas than before (the joys of living a bazillion miles away from most other people on the list)! So...a very BIG thank you to those who made the effort (and braved the international postage costs) to send your cards to this far flung corner of the world; Angela - love the 'Sparkling Candle' picture on your card, and the cute bear on your return address label too! BonosBeagle - I'm glad the tea I sent last year warmed you up during the cold and snowy weather! electricco - Meilleurs v
  5. Monica; my query referred to the discrepancy between the thread (a few days, as you pointed out), and the PM I received (a couple of weeks, which is significantly later than the end of the month mentioned in the thread). In the end, the list will take as long as it takes, and arrive when it does, but I was concerned that if it was to really be a couple of weeks, then I wont have time to get mine done and in the mail before Xmas.
  6. Zhivvy; Thanks for posting an update on how many people, but I'm hoping for some clarification on when we can expect the list to be emailed out, please? Your post says "Going to wait till the end of the month and then will sort out the list and email them all out to you as soon as possible after that", but I've now received a PM from you saying "Will be sending all out within the next couple of weeks". Did you really mean it will take that long to compile and send the list out?
  7. Just sent you my info...thanks for sorting it this year :-) Would you able to please post an update of how many people are already on the list, as I need to start placing orders a.s.a.p. for everything to arrive in time for me to then send them to everyone (postage takes ages from Aus)? Also, I don't mean to sound bossy, but it might be good to suggest that at the very least, people send a card to the next person on the list (after their own name), so that everyone gets at least one card. :-) Thanks again
  8. Oh good, it's always reassuring to know that the cards are arriving safe and sound, and I'm glad you liked the little goodies. TBH, I don't drink tea, so it could be downright awful and I wouldn't know ...if it is, don't hold it against the country, lol...I was just looking for something small I could enclose, and that seemed to fit the theme and size restrictions nicely. I got your card today too, and also one from Ana, and my first one was a couple of days ago, from Electricco...thank you very much; the card exchange is one of my favourite things about this time of year!
  9. All done and mailed yesterday and today...just waiting on details of the last minute addition so I can send that one too
  10. Love the card exchange...count me in too! If I may be so bold as to request that the list please be compiled and sent out by the end of November? Some of us live a long way away from the majority of participants, so we need time to be able to place orders for the right number of cards/stamps, etc. to have any hope of them arriving in time for Xmas.

    @Nikaliptus

    Wow, it's been 3 months since I lodged my entry, and there's a sudden resurgence of people Tweeting and PMing me about my bracelets! Not sure how they're suddenly finding my picture (which was actually just a competition entry, never intended to advertise a product), but it's awesome to hear from people all over the world who like my bracelets and are asking if I sell them. No, I don't sell them (not even to cover my costs); it's simply a hobby and labour of love to connect with fellow U2 fans from around the world. I'd love to say 'yes' to every request to make one, but as I mentioned

    @Nikaliptus

    Thanks for your kind comments on my FTGU entry. I hope it's acceptable to post a comment on my own entry, but I just thought I'd add a little background story... I've been making friendship bracelets for years, just experimenting with different colours and patterns, but never really making pictures or words in them, then when I joined the Zoo back in 2008, I signed up for the Xmas card exchange and wanted to make a little 'something' to include with my cards, so figured friendship bracelets would be the obvious choice as they are small and light for posting and can double as bookmarks

  16. Just sent, so check your PM box spicy...
  17. Good pick up, thanks Monica; I wondered about that one yesterday. According to Royal Mail's website on how to correctly address mail for various countries, the format for «17»'s country is First Name followed by Last Name Street Name followed by street number (30) zip code (3550) followed by TOWN COUNTRY So it looks like as well as the postcode being listed wrongly (i.e. should be 3550, not 3350), the line break was put in the wrong place on the list, and should be inserted between the 30 and the 3550 (i.e. not before the 30). I only bring this up because countries like the US, C
  18. I asked him to send out an amendment email with my correct address and he replied; "I'll send your correction as well as a few others tonight.", but that was over 24 hours ago now. I'm printing my envelopes now, so I hope everyone else's address is correct, and I have added Joshua84, Suee, Ingrida and Izzy (all using last year's addresses) as they appear to be the ones that were left off, but if anyone is aware of any other missing people or address corrections, please make them known here (obviously don't publicly post people's addresses), so that those of us already working on their card

  21. [quote name='utwothefly wrote: Kristaps']It’s that time of the year again when Christmas ads appear, and when we get annoyed by the same Christmas songs over and over again. It’s also the time of the year when we usually hold the annual ZOOTOPIA CHRISTMAS CARDS EXCHANGE! And this year is no different. How does it work you may ask? Easy! You sign up and then in early December I send everyone who has signed up a list of all participants. Then you send nice Christmas Cards to each other. To sign up you need to either send me an e-mail (ZooKristaps@gmail.com) or PM*
  22. Sorry for the very late post, but I just wanted tosay that I have finally finished sending my cards (to everyone on thelist). I'm sorry they were so late this year, but as you have seen/will see, Iplaced an order with a certain fan club shop (who shall remain nameless, butrhymes with 'van-hire', LOL) way back in November - before the list even came out- and they decided to split up my order into smaller shipments that onlystarted arriving in early January, with the last lot arriving only a weekago(!), so I had to delay my cards, and split them into smaller batches aswell. Anyway, all done
  23. Congratulations Nadoo! Well that makes at least 2 sets that went to Zootops, coz I got the Melbourne set! Another HUGE thank you to G (and photo contributors Selena, Jets and Queen Leonie) for organising such a great fundraising idea! You all rock!
  24. Thank you Angel Eyes! Love the picture (then again, I always do) and greeting, and thanks for your personal message.
  25. Woot...and another card has arrived... Thank You Bieke2be...cool pic, and I love the text inside (and thanks for the personal message; yup, the second show was the best EVERRRRRRR!).
