Hi @Erica McPhee ,

I've recieved 1 from the list 5, it is from @wfung. The envelope is so pretty. :)

Hi!

I was on list 5 and sent mine out about December 9, I believe. I received 3 from the list, but not yours @suwarni   Our mail delivery has not been very good during the holidays, hope to receive more

I checked list 5 and almost all of the list members are frequent exchangers and so I'm certain this is purely a mail issue. Also, several of my recipients in the North and in other countries have already received their cards well over a week ago so again, a mail issue.

I've been trying to think of ways to prevent this but unfortunately, I don't think it is because of the participants in this case, so it is out of our control.

Hi there, everyone!!

I am sorry for this late message, but I was in Japan for holidays until yesterday!! When coming back all your beautiful mail was there waiting for me.

I was in list 5 and have letters from: @suwarni @tintenfuchs @theochrebelly @vickiefinley @Ashleysellars @wfung and Lisa Holtzman (who was not in my list, I will be sending something to you shortly, Lisa  ;) ).

I cannot tell you when exactly your cards arrived, but all of them are here now!! thank you so much, they are sooo pretty!

My cards will be late... [bows head in shame]. Hopefully will go in the mail by Friday.  :-[

I have received yours this Thursday Erica.
Totally Iíve gotten 7 wonderful holiday exchange cards, but one was not on my list and signed themselves ĎSamií, which means I seem to not have gotten one from @Calligal

Iíd love to send a card to Sami in exchange for the one I received, Erica could you facilitate an address as there was none on the card?

Well, it's taken a bit but after receiving a message from @Calligal I finally figured out what the problem was ... for some unknown reason, @Calligal Lisa went onto the email distribution list for List 5 even though her name was on List 4. And @Mrssamiali Sami went onto List 2 & 4 distribution lists even though she was only on List 2.

So unfortunately, Sami sent exchanges to TWO lists but only received back from one. And Lisa sent all of her exchanges - but to the list she received in her email (List 5). She received from List 4.

My apologies to everyone as this was not either of their fault. I have no idea how it happened because the email distribution lists are automatically generated from a mail merge. However, this is why it is important to check your list when you receive it and make sure your name is on the list.  :-\

Hi All,
Iím the Sami who sent out the mail everyone was receiving. It was my first exchange so I Didnít notice until too late that I should have documented better that it was for the flourish forum. And I did receive some mail which were all so beautiful so I didnít mind not getting the others. Just figured it was something on my part. But thanks Erica for figuring it out. Looking forward to the next exchange!
