WOW ~ what better time to start this than with a NEW exchange board (the first *official* exchange on the new board!!), and Hallmark just having their ornament premiere over the weekend!! (LOTS of very cute Disney ornaments!!)

Sign Up's until Monday July 24
Send By Monday July 31

There is no price limit set on this exchange as ornaments vary so in price ~ but you will have to send at least one ornament to your exchange partner!! These do not have to be Hallmark ornaments ~ but please do not just send one ornament if the price of the ornament you choose to send is under $5.

Being that this is *Christmas in July* please be fun when sending your package and possibly wrap the ornaments!! If you have a specific decorating style ~ be sure to note that when you send me your information!

If you choose to participate ~ please be sure to play fair and send your package out!!

PM me with your name, address, email address and decorating style if that matters to you!!

Have fun and Happy Exchanging!!

Come one, Come all,
This is the most fun exchange of all!!

(well I don't know about that ~ but it sounded fun!)

Hallmark just had their ornament premiere ~ and many stores are getting ornaments out now ~ I know Hobby Lobby has theirs out! This will be the fourth year we have done this exchange, and it has been a fun one!!

I think this sub board is not allowing a lot of new people to be aware of what is going on :(
We're trying to figure out someway to get the word out.

When we have a Chicago Meet, we can't post the whole thread about the Meet on the CB but, in the past, they have allowed a *link* thread. The thread merely contains the basic idea and contains a link to the Meet board/thread. Might that work here? :confused3 I realize the Mods might feel we've done no eliminating of 'space' but, it's just a thought/idea. :confused3

kayla has a PM into a webmaster to see just what we can do.

I'll join this one

PM on the way

and the WM and Mods are still discussing it

I asked for suggestions

someone said a link in our signatures??? :confused3

Meriweather
07-19-2006, 08:42 AM
I don't see how that would help, then people would actually have to read our signatures :rotfl:
I guess if we all linked to Heidi's index it might help a little, but I still can't see getting newbies in that way :(

kaylajr
07-19-2006, 11:03 AM
for now that is the best suggestion they have

so I linked Heidi's sticky in my signature

Meriweather
07-19-2006, 05:28 PM
Hope lost of people read your posts, Kayla :P
All the way through the siggie :rotfl:
We'll see how it goes.
I see small exchanges in our future, with few newbies :(

KimRaye

How many have joined this exchange, under this new system? :confused3

Meriweather
07-19-2006, 10:32 PM
I think we are going to see much smaller exchanges, Kim :(
No way to let the general CB know what is going on.
Kayla said she was told we should just use links in our signatures, but that means people would have to actually read them ;)

That's a shame. This exchange has always been a BIGGIE in the past! And, the YC exchanges, too!

I want to join this one, but I am a little afraid of not being able to find any ornaments. I was just in Yosemite and San Francisco and I saw ornaments all over the place. I wish I was smart enough to think ahead LOL!!!

Oh well I guess I will give it a go!!!!

Okay all ~ sorry I have been quiet....I had a LONG two days of work, yesterday it was from 7:30 a.m. to 11:15 p.m.. :rolleyes: The sun and heat just drained the life out of me yesterday...I was so very ready for my head to hit the pillow!!

On a positive note ~ we do have at least one newbie so far!! I think that this new exchange board will work out....it will just take a little bit! Who next to sign up!!!

Yes, I had a hard time finding the exchanges. But I really had to search to find them. I was going to stay home tonight but now I guess I will run to Kohls 1 day sale. They have a 1 day sale all the time, but you mention the word sale & I'm there. This should be a fun one.

kbmoo
07-22-2006, 10:17 PM
Alright, I just got home about 15 minutes ago from Kohls. I went to the mall too, but by the time I got there Hallmark was closed. I ended up spending $400 and do you think I saw 1 stinkin ornament? NO. But I did get alot of really neat stuff. I got stuff for my husband and son and I will probably remturn 3/4 of it. I'm going to bed, I'm worn out.

Do you like Kohl's? I have only been in one once...but one is opening near here in a few months.

Kohl's is great, and they usually have a big Christmas section, but this year they decided to do a back to school display first. Oh, well I know there are plenty of other stores that have Christmas ornaments. And I am sure I'll have lots of fun finding them.
