The First Annual DWOD Christmas Card Exchange!

Care to listen to one of my favorite instrumental Christmas tracks while you read? ?


Have you wondered why I bought some craft supplies at the store a couple of weeks ago? ? Ellie tried to find out and many of you made guesses, too. ? Well, I’m here to present to you…

Wait, what? What title? What featured image?! What are you talking ab-

Oh. I see. You know all of my surprises already, huh? ?

Wrong! Hehehe! ? I still have one more surprise coming tomorrow. I’ll give you a hint… someone totally, amazingly, awesomely incredible is doing it, too! Someone I’m very proud to call my friend. In fact, if you follow her blog, you probably already know. But if you don’t… Stick around until Saturday to find out! ?

Until then, what was I doing?

Oh, yes, of course. I didn’t really forget. I just needed a good line to direct back to it. ?

ANYWAY! ?

Today I am proud to present…

christmascardexchange2016-realThe First Annual Delightful World of Dolls Christmas Card Exchange

I am super, duper excited about this! I hope you are, too, because many of you guessed this in the Detective Work photostory comments! Maddie, Lucky, Kiki, and Lea each guessed correctly. Great detective work, guys! ?

Would you like to participate? Here is how it works!

 •If you send me a Christmas card, I will send you one back! I’m going to make you an exclusive Christmas card in response to yours, and I’m super excited! Christmas cards are so fun to make! You can send any kind of Christmas card (store-bought or handmade) to my P.O. box address:

poboxaddress2016withstamp


Delightful World of Dolls
P.O. Box 1917
Valrico, FL 33595


Be sure to get a parent or guardian’s permission to send a card. ?

Please remember to put your return address on your envelope so I will know where to send a card to you. And I can send cards anywhere, so even if you live internationally, I would love for you to participate! You can send your card anytime in December, so even if I get your card after Christmas, I’ll still send you one back! ?

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask them below! For a more private way to contact me, visit my contact page.

I can’t WAIT to send cards out! ?

Merry Christmas!

Love,

madisonsignature
P.S. If your dolls want to send cards to my dolls, you’re more than welcome to do that! 😀

P.P.S. If you aren’t allowed to participate, don’t you worry! There are plenty of other fun things coming up this month. Stay tuned for what’s coming tomorrow!

    OHMYGOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t believe it – great idea!!!!! I love it! I’m TOTALLY going to try to send you one if I get permission! Can I send you, and each of my dolls choose one of yours to send one to?!? And cut it out with all the scrolling by now!!! 😀 😉 Thankfully, yesterday I was using my sister’s swipe thingy laptop so I just kept swiping while watching something else until I reached the bottom. 🙂

    does the card have to be x-mas themed

      Madison December 2, 2016 at 10:51 am - Reply

      YAY! 😀
      Well, it is a Christmas card exchange, so it would make sense for the card to be Christmas-themed. But you can send me a card any time at all that doesn’t have to be Christmas-themed! 😀

    I’m totally sending you a card! This is so fun! I’m guessing you got the idea from AG Fan?

      Thanks! I hope you do! 😀 Hmm, I didn’t think about that. Good question. 😉

      I suppose that if people prefer, they could say “happy holidays” on their card, but I’m going to say “Merry Christmas” ’cause that just what I do. 😛 If people really don’t want to send a Christmas card, they just won’t. XD I do have either a Valentine’s Day card exchange or a Valentine’s Day doll photo contest coming up in January/February that they can participate in! 😀
