Wow, I got Brazil, Australia, and even Croatia-how cool is that. I have quite a few in the US too which is great. This is the first time I'm doing it. I'm off to do them now.

Hey, it's the Card Exchange Hostess. For those of you who miss the deadline, keep in mind next year that it's okay to send me your info anyway, at least up until the weekend that follows. I need a deadline so that I can already have the majority of people posted on a spreadsheet by that point. Then I can just start putting the lists together the following weekend. Some stragglers are expected and it's fine.

We always have a lot more U.S. fans signing up, so I try to have a certain percentage of non-U.S. fans on each list - usually four or five people. There are about nine separate lists when I'm finished.

I'm embarrassed to admit that it wasn't until I had sent out the first five lists this year - individually in separate e-mails to each person on a particular list - that I finally got the bright idea of just sending out one e-mail to all the people on the list at once. Dawn breaks on Marblehead...

this is my first year going the exchange, I am sorry if some of mine get sent out late, I was making a card in the spirit of u2, and it took me a little longer than I anticipated.

They're gone, they're sent (including the one sealed with a kiss  :-*). I do, however, have a confession to make.
I have this sinking feeling that I put a wrong card in the wrong envelope. If your name is Connor and you get a card that begins with "Dear Sally" please, forgive me. Sally will probably open a card and read "Dear Connor". I tried really hard, but the marbles aren't all there I'm afraid. Sorry about that. Merry Christmas!  ;D

I got 3 already and one had a CD with U2 music inside it. How great is that? One was from Elsha Stockseth's friend! You must all know Elsha who designs the cards for the African Well Fund (I believe)! U2 dedicated Miracle Drug to her and always make time to visit with her when she comes to see them. A wheelchair doesn't stop Elsha. She is one of my heroes!!! I am going to send her a message ;D.

Someone sent you a cd??  :o Dang. Wish I had thought of that. All I put in them was festive magnets.  :-X Idea for next year though.

I felt awful because all I sent was a note in the card. I hope I get a pass on that because it was my first year. I'll have to think of something clever for next year. If I had any talent, I would love to draw the band inside the card. That would be cool. 8)
