Card Forum Check-In 2017

Hello friends.

This is the thread where all CVs can chat about mail ideas, creative things we send our pals, any general info we would like to share with one another.

We can post about what's happening on our side of the globe. Anything important you would like to share or perhaps even, something funny that happened, which may bring a laugh to your fellow CVs!

This is where we update one another & are available for support.

Thank you all for all you do for inmates

Wow, you can almost hear a pin drop it's sooooooo quiet in here, and this Aussie Card Fairy doesn't like it when it's quiet!!! Where's everyone at? It's been a while since we had any special requests come through....I might post one today...and see if anyone responds.....I sure hope so.

Is there anything we can do in here to get your interest back into the card forum? Just speak up....the moderators etc won't know if you don't say something.

I hate to think of the card forum being the quiet section it is right now, when it was a thriving metropolis of PTO not so long ago...I wear deodorant, honest, so it's safe to come stand near me!!!

I'm looking forward to reading what you're all up to, and why you're all so quiet...I'm still chasing up some of the old timers.....that seem to have fallen back, just to make sure they're okay...will update as I find out....here's a list of names....not to single anyone out, but just people we haven't seen or heard much of lately. If I know what's up with them, I'll say, otherwise, if you speak to any of the others, can you perhaps update the list?

TxAngel
Luvtorun
MsRose (taking a break for health matters - could probably do with some card love if you have her address!)
Sdev
Gallega1211 (although she has been here the last few days)
delones24
RodMc
Sassycat80 (taking an extended site break, but I can get messages to her if anyone needs me to)
Janche
choochamy (hubby and son are both home now, YAY)
Mommybear
liebevoll

I'm sure there's others, but the above list is who came to mind...cause ya know as soon as ya want to remember something, (well mine does!) ya brain shuts off!

Okay....roll call time, who's still around and what you up to?

Hugs
Naomi

Hi just checking in, I participated in the Christmas and New Years swap and wanted to do Valentines day but have been "sidelined" by a few health issues. I hope everyone is doing well!!

Hi there and I hope you are feeling better. We will be organising more swaps and there are a couple of special requests on the board if you have cards available. We are really looking forward to having you back with us.

I just wanted to send my apologies that some of my valentines cards have been delayed going out. I have had some health issues and families issues which have mean't I havent been out of the house for a while.I guess a belated good wish for valentines is better than no wish.
Apologies everyone.

It's supposed to be the bride (me) not the bridesmaid (you) that gets nervous etc before the big day....lol...but on a serious note, I do hope everything is okay for you my friend. Let me know if you need me to have your back for any swap cards hunni.

Big hugs

I am ok now and all remaining cards are posted
We have had another family bereavement and I have a dose of flu that wont go away. Its a good job we arent on video chat no one would be enjoying my runny nose and watery eyes.

I have lost track where we are with the swaps I will check it out today.

If I dont get better you may need another flower girl for the wedding. I wouldnt want to sneeze on your lace frock.

Hi everyone, I have also been lazy and not accessing the web site much here lately but I continue to write to 8-10 inmates that have responded to me through this card swap. I feel like it is such a good source of comfort to the inmates. They need someone to write to, and look forward to getting a letter, a card. It also gives them an insight into what is going on in the world. Their world is very limited. It uplifts them to receive mail. I enjoy it, I feel like it is a ministry in a way. I am glad I got involved in the card swap. It is well worth my time. Kathyradellvn
