Post Card / Christmas Card Exchange

Post card / Christmas card exchange

A thread to discuss same.

Fairly simple really, we exchange addresses and send each other a post card or Christmas card. Either is fine. They can be anything you desire to send, something from the Hallmark aisle or printed on your computer or handmade or delivered by angels with curly wings.

If you do want to make your card I suggest keeping them fairly small so the postage is not excessive.

Each person will send me their mailing address via PM on c.com and I will send the complete list to all participants Then we will each send a card to each participant. So far there are 4 signed up so that makes, wait for it, wait, almost. Yes, 4 cards to send out! But they can all 4 be the same card, they don't have to be individual designs.

The main goal is to keep the US postal service in bussiness as they have been hemoraging a few billion dollars each year lately. OK, not the main goal really. Really it is just for fun.

We are getting started a little late on this but hopefully it will work out that people will get a card before Christmas.

If you are ambitious and want to try making your own cards there are lots of options for that.

Here is a short tutorial on foam plate prints that might be fun to try.

http://www.artforsma...ray-prints.html

You can buy pre-made blank cards at many art and craft stores. They are usually just watercolor paper cut and folded to fit an envelope.

So far we have these people signed up:

GFinDC

Mushroom

KarenG

Jerseyangel

Please don't post your address or contact info in this thread!

We need a cutoff to keep it from getting too expensive postage wise, so lets say no more than 10 total participants.

OK, any questions are welcome.

Thanks for signing up and I hope you enjoy the card exchange project!

The excellent suggestion was made that we use the option of email cards vs snail mail cards. We will assume that cards will be emailed via the celiac.com PM system instead. If you would like to use snail mail, I can send your address to members per your direction also. Or you can PM it yourself instead. Either way works fine.

Since postage for me (both to and from) is too expensive, I vote for electronic cards

Cool, Shroomie is for the electric shock therapy, er electronic delivery option. GFLover signed up too but for the postal support system.

I'll mark the names with a super secret code so we don't have to reveal our druthers.

GFLover P or E

GFinDC P or E

Mushroom E

KarenG P or E ?

Jerseyangel P or E ?

hint on the secret codes

P could refer to a horse or pony delivery method once used in the American West.

E could refer to the transmission of information via the ether so often found in various cosmic locales.

I assume everyone is ok with the E option by default, but some have indicated a strange willingness to accept the P option.

Bah Humbu...Oh wait, I mean Merry Christmas. :lol:

Actually though, I need to opt out. I don't even send Christmas cards to my close friends back in Connecticut. I call them instead. And I'm not even good enough on a computer to send group emails.

So if it's OK with you guys, I'll just wait until it gets closer and post on the Merry Christmas thread that will no doubt show up here on the forum. :)

Hey, I would like to join in, but I am travelling, and therefore I can't do P, because it would be intercontinental postage for me.

We are doing email Xmas with Shroomie. Could you do that?

I got a Pm from Paul with addresses but no email.

I got addresses for: gluten-free LOver, GFinDC(Paul), Lisa Ski, & NC Dave. He didn't give me Patti or Shroomie. He might think I already had them?

PAUL!

This card exchange is a smell-oiled machine Crayon! :) Updated list sent out, Yahoo changed their mail client on me and they picked the wrong time to do that. Other conundrums of utmost importance also impinged on the submission of the official, unalterable and most fluid list.

Lisa, please check again, you are on the message for surely and purely.

ButterflyChaser has been added for a final count of 8, yes 8 participants that's 2 less than 10 if you are the counting sort.

Patti, You are on the message also, and the updated listing tonight.

I still need email for a couple people, who will remain anonymous until I type their names, Shroomster and GFLuvinlover. Gee, that didn't take long!

I printed cards yesterday but they are still drying so twill be a little longer before they can be sent out.

Sorry, for slow response, my internet connection was down all day yesterday and all morning. Then I bought anew keyboard and had to return it later today. Was flaky. Then the cat started meowing and the sweet taters in the crock pot started calling all at once.

GFLover P or E

GFinDC P or E

GotterSki (Lessuer) P or E

Mushroom E

KarenG P or E ?

Jerseyangel P or E ?

NCDave P or E

ButterflyChaser P or E

Ok, update numero Tres has been sent out with top most important information in secret code. Please read and burn the email after writing your Christmas gift list on it.

And Crayon, I heard u already, y all the shouting? :) You acting like we are heading over a cliff or sumthin... Just kidding. :)

    • Help understanding test results??
      I forgot to add this...I only had one positive on the complete celiac panel.  I had a positive on the DGP IgA test, my visual endoscopy "looked fine" but my biopsies revealed a Marsh Stage IIIB (moderate to severe villi damage).  My symptom at the time was anemia.   Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  This is really important!   Hang in there!    
    • SO HUNGRY. All. The. Time.
      Over my 6 gluten-free years, I have endured this "Starving Syndrome" several times.  Actually, I have lost count.  I am 5'4" and frequently eat more than my 6'4" husband.  My weight has gone from a low of 93 lbs. to my current high of 105 lbs.  I eat as much as I possibly can.   I agree about the fats helping me to feel full.  I'm beginning to test out the "grain hypothesis" as mentioned above. It seems (feels) to me that when I go through a major healing spurt, my body just wants more food!  No idea if this is actually what is happening.  Still, I have come to look at it as a "good thing" when my body wants lots of food.  I just relax and try to give my SMART body what it wants.
    • I got WELL!!
      Update on my progress: 1.  By thorough and consistent evaluation of my food diary (every item ingested for 6 years); I've finally figured out that both dairy and nightshades cause me PAIN!  I had tried eliminating these previously; but it was no help.  I tried again anyway...and IT WORKED!!  Maybe because I'm healthier now?  Never was lactose intolerant; but BOTH these items cause me PAIN!  All over, wish-I-were-dead PAIN! 2.  Just completed 2 courses of Xifaxin.  One in November and one in February.  The first course helped some with the Buddha Belly.  This second course helped a lot!  Fingers crossed that things will only continue to improve.  (I actually think it may be helping reduce the fatigue!  But I won't mention it as I don't want to jinx it!) 3.  Added back rice.  Had been grain-free for 3 years.  Seems fine and maybe even beneficial.  I'm pursuing adding more variety to my diet.  Looking at amaranth and buckwheat.  Plan to discuss diet with nutritionist after my next GI appt.  to get tips on this.  (Had to postpone this appt. due to bad headcold--first in many years!) 4.  Plan to discuss changing levothyroxine brand at next internist appt. in a couple weeks.  Currently taking Tirosint--and love it.  But...investigating other options like Levoxyl since I may have felt better on that.  Sadly, Pfizer was NOT helpful the last 2 times I called them to discuss gluten content/contamination.  Mylan generic was VERY helpful!  Choice to be determined.  Goal is to reduce fatigue. 5.  Continuing with exercise, meditation, drawing, etc.  Paying attention to mindset and emotional calm.  Optimism is my friend. 6.  On a humorous note, my hairline continues to advance!  I always had the highest of foreheads.  Ha!  Now my hairline is moving, from all directions, closer to my eyes!  i actually have developed a widow's peak!  This is too funny.  Sixty-six years old and my hairline keeps getting thicker and more extensive!  Mother Nature toys with me! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY to everyone!!   Remember to love yourself!
    • I got WELL!!
      Posterboy, Many, many thanks for providing such complete information.  Your efforts won't go to waste.  I will look into each item you mentioned. Not sure the iodine is an issue as I no longer have a thyroid.  And too much iodine can aggravate my intermittent rashes.  (Never was tested for DH.  Didn't see the point as I was already diagnosed with Celiac.) Thanks again!
    • Celiac in 10 month old?
      Thanks all for the information! Still waiting to hear back on what sort of follow up the doctor wants to do, but this information has been very helpful in the meantime.
