2019 Birthday Card Swap - Sign Up ASAP
I thought of this entirely too late in the year. Maybe we can somehow generate enough interest before the end of the year to still make this happen. If you would be interested in exchanging birthday cards with the forum in 2019, the same rules apply as the Holiday Card Swap. You must send to everyone on the list and strive to have the cards arrive on or before everyone's birthday. If no one receives a card from you, you may not be allowed to participate in the future.

Please reply to this thread if you are interested. Please private message me with your full name, address, and birthday. The year is not required. Your address will be copied, pasted, and sent to everyone EXACTLY as you send it to me. So, make sure that it is correct. Do not forget your full street address and zip code.

**EDIT**
We have a birthday in early January, so signups are closed. If you would like to exchange cards with me privately, we can do so. Just PM me directly. My birthday is in March.


If I had thought of this earlier, the ideal deadline would be 5:00AM EST on December 31st. If there are no birthdays in early January, we can extend the signup deadline to 5:00AM EST on January 15th.

I will update this list with user names as people sign up for the swap. Your name will turn red after people start receiving your cards. If your name is in the list, presume I received your name, birthday, and address.

If you don't see your name on the list within 2 days, you probably forgot to send me your address.

The list you receive will be in order by date, not the order in which you messaged me.

We have a birthday in early January. So, I will be closing the signups already. I will start an interest thread more in advance next year.

Okay. I confused myself too. YOURS is the only card I received actually. I edited my post. I'm sorry about that. Your card was beautiful. Thank you. I think I wrote karenanne because I was thinking that I hoped she received the one I sent to her on March 1st.

Thank you all for the lovely birthday cards. I got them when I got home from visiting my grandson in Atlanta. He is doing a lot better.


He was in a car accident around the beginning of March and was in ICU for a while. He I'd staying at the Ronald McDonald house and is doing physical therapy now. They said he might come home in two weeks for good.

Again thank you all for the wonderful cards, loved them. Going to celebrate my birthday later

I'm so sorry to hear about the bad news, but I'm so glad that it seems like he's going to make a full recovery. We all wish your family the best.

I do the same. I open Christmas cards throughout December, but my birthday is just one day. I'm happy you received the card.
