Hi everyone! Welcome to the birthday-gram thread!
Birthday grams are like happy-grams but are especially for birthdays. On CO+K everyone is friendly and likes to share the love and whats a better way than sending someone a birthday card?
This is an on-going swap. The idea is that I will compile a list of everyone who is participating, with their addresses and birthdays. When someones birthday is coming up I'll e-mail round everyone (apart from the person whose birthday it is) 4 weeks beforehand and everyone will send out a card and a small present. That way the birthday-girl will get a cascade of cards and gifts from all her friends on CO+K.
Sound cool? If you want to take part send me a private message with you name, address and birthday (plus any other info you think I should know). To start with I'll give it a week and then, I'll put up a list of people that are particpating. Since you can join this thread at anytime the list will change as we go on. If you need to opt out at anytime let me know.****EDIT JAN 2013: Since we are now almost at the end of the birthdays for this year (there are 3 left), I am no longer allowing people to join the board fo this round.
*I expect people to send at least one birthday gram, if you quit after your birthday without sending out I will post your name on the incomplete swap list!*
I will consider newbies for this swap but I would prefer if you had at least done happygrams first and I expect you to have a well filled out profile, with at least one favourite and one project.
Ask away if you have any questions!
Happy crafting everyone!
Here's the participant list (August 2012):
The incredible Suzy Lee (U.S only)
Great idea. Messaging you now
oh this is a fantastic idea!! we missed my birthday though awwwh
Gonna message you right away =D
@Brook: Has your birthday just been? Feel free to still join if you want to because I'm hoping this will be a long running swap like happy grams and so we will eventually get round your birthday again next year. 2 of the birthday's I have already are for next year.
I just thought, if its a big birthday (like your 18th or 21st etc) let me know, then people can send the appropriately numbered card (if they wish).
Im in! Messaging you now I love making birthday presents!

I had a message from Mary to say she recieved birthday cards and messages but is currently on holiday and will respond properly when she gets back. The other birthday I sent an alert for hasn't actually been yet so ...watch this space.
