    Thank you to all that sent cards/postcards/family pics to me!
    It's greatly appreciated!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2005 to all!

    I got 28 cards and 1 from Australia and the UK also. Thanks everyone! This was really fun. What about a nursing gift exchange next year? $10 limit ?

    35 cards so far. This was so much fun for my family and the cards look beautiful hanging up around the house.

    Many thanks to all who took the time to send a greeting!

    Well as you can tell by another post, there are a few that haven't gotten their cards out so that means there will be more coming.....I have receieved 25 from my all nurses friends, that you very much....it help make my holiday even better...I am keeping all my cards from the last two years for my own feelings...it was sooooo nice....I am also going to start working on Christmas cards this month so that I will have enough ready to send everyone. I felt bad sending out boughten cards when I make such pretty cards on my own...

    I would like a gift exchange but lets have a limit...i mean if you have a 10$ limit and you send to 80 people that is a lot of money for gifts....maybe a couple of bucks. JMO

    i received 40 cards so far, and they are all lovely. and the friendship and caring they represent are even lovlier. i would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to all the people who took the time to send me a card this year. i really appreciate them, and they look so pretty hanging in my entry way

    regarding the idea of a gift exchange. how about each person wanting to take part, take one name. that way you can concentrate on one gift, instead of 90 gifts. and at even $2. each that would really add up, especially with the postage. just my 2 cents.

    I haven't actually counted the cards I received (and I probaby won't), which are kind of all over the house, depending on where I was when the mail came in and Brian brought them to me.

    I got enough to pull me out of the dumps several times over. This was my only real Christmas activity. It was great. I wanna do it again next year.

    As to gifts, it's an interesting idea, there is no way I could begin to do more than one, and I think someone would have to be an organizer and keep track of who signed up, then would have to make assignments (would they be secret?). Or, one could make a list like the one I did with the understanding that #1 would give to #2, #2 would give to #3, etc. until # last would give to #1.

    Too complicated, IMHO. (sounds like scrooge, doesn't it? sorry)

    But I'd do cards again in a snap. Only next year, I am writing them out and stamping them as the names come in, not waiting until the "right," time, which apparently was the "right" time for a lot of other stuff to happen too.

    I havent counted how many I have recieved........ but I have enjoyed sending them to places I have only seen or heard of in films... sending one to the bronx... and one to chatanooga (have I spelt that right?) makes me want to sing the song from the series 'casey Jones'!!!

    I will admit I didnt sent to all 90- rang out money at about 60!! so sorry if I didnt send you one... might send post cards through the year to make up for it!!

    I too haven't counted how many cards I have received from everyone. I just enjoyed the receiving and looking at where they have come from. I will definately be taking part next year again if we do it

    30 cards so far and I have really enjoyed each and every one.

    Each evening, my husband and I have opened the cards, read each one and noted where the cards have come from! (I particularly enjoy the ones with letters or notes.)

    I have gotten cards from all over the US, 1 from Canada, 1 from England, and 1 from Scotland!

    Thanks y'all for helping make my Christmas Merry and Bright!
