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. :)

    • I eat them with no issues and know several other Celiacs that eat them with no issue.
    • I am sorry that you are sick! i think you need to really adhere to a gluten free diet that consists of ONLY whole foods (no processed gluten-free foods) and do not go out to eat, until you start to see improvement.  Each tiny gluten exposure can set you back.  It sounds like you really became even more ill after the gluten challenge.   I was just anemic when diagnosed.  I waited seven weeks for my endoscopy due to work issues, so i took the time to consume lots of gluten.  Like a loaf of sourdough per day not to mention all the cakes, cookies that I loved.  (Okay, I just ate a few out of each package......)  by the end of seven weeks, I knew I had celiac disease.  I had a bloated stomach visible under my left rib cage, pinching when I bent over, indigestion, etc.  Not to mention some weird Fibro pain my my shoulders, tingly legs, etc.   Most resolved, but it took about two years. If you  ask for thyroid panel, be sure it includes testing for thyroid antibodies.   
    • My daughter, who is almost 21 and has celiac disease, was diagnosed with Epilepsy a year ago. Hindsight being 20/20, we realized she had been having seizure since she was a teenager but the random passing out and feelings of being 'out of it' were attributed to dehydration or poor nutrition and sleep habits during numerous trips to the emergency room. In our reading about Epilepsy, I have found some mention of celiac and gluten issue connections and even where a strict adherence to a gluten-free diet provided a lot of improve the with frequency and severity of seizures.  I would be interested to know if anyone else shares this experience.
    • I have also reacted to various Planters products, believing them to be safe because gluten is not listed in the allergens but have had almost identical reactions to yours.  It did not occur to me that I might be getting zapped from them until just recently when I ate some of their Salt and Vinegar almonds and became really ill and then recognized that I had reacted to them before. I have notice in the past few months that the 'Hermans' brand nuts, which have never mentioned wheat in their allergens now carries the 'processed in a plant that processes wheat' disclaimer.  It makes me wonder if all nuts are processed in the same manner and if all nuts and nut products should be considered unsafe? I know that I will not trust the Planters brand any longer regardless of whether wheat is listed or not.
    • I've heard some people say that they're gluten free, and some say they're not.. I had a container of planter's cashews that I ate a few days ago and I haven't been feeling that great since then. I thought I was fine, but yesterday I woke up with a headache and was feeling really gassy all day. Then since last night, every once in a while I'll have some stomach cramps. They last for a few minutes and then go away.. that has happened 3 or 4 times since last night. It seems weird that I wouldn't have a reaction right away though.. or at least within a few hours of eating them. I ate some on thursday and on friday, and I didn't really start to feel sick until saturday. It's been a while since I last got glutened though, so maybe my reaction has changed? Or maybe I'm being paranoid and I just ate too many cashews haha. But that's the only thing I've eaten in the past like 2 weeks that was different. Has anyone else had a problem with planter's nuts?
