I love numbers. When dates land on sequenced numbers like this you will find many people get married on these days because it feels special (or easy to remember an anniversary!)

Let's send 1 postcard to 3 swappers on this very special day. If you can get them postmarked on the actual date, all the better, but not required. Be sure and put the swap name and your username on your postcard so your partner can rate you.

Homemade or store bought cards.

Swappers with 5 completed swaps welcome. No recent or unexplained no-sends. I reserve the right to ban. Thoughtful, reliable swappers who have the courtesy & time to follow thru sending & rating please. Please be kind and include your swapbot username and the name of the swap on your postcard.

Flakers will be listed in the forums and unwelcome in future swaps. If you need an angel, please go rate your partner a 1- no send then come to me. I will no longer angel swaps that aren't rated appropriately in a timely manner. Thanks for your understanding.

Important points

Come join the fun! Be my guest! Become a swap friend! Have fun!

Homemade or store bought cards.

No freebie or advertising cards please. Thanks!

camelsamba 04/16/2009 #

ooh, and how about 12:34:56, although I guess that doesn't have the zeroes in it...

IngridRijnen 04/17/2009 #

Really last night I was thinking about this. I will be in..... 20.09.2009 is also a nice one :-)

Cadfael57 05/ 3/2009 #

From France, it won't be in order, we write the date like that 08/07/09 (D/M/Y) !!!

myrrhmaid 05/ 6/2009 #

That's fine, Cadfael! We won't hold it against you! :)P

tsireldi 06/ 2/2009 #

Cadfael57 and anyone else from abroad, you can do a similar swap on 07/08/09 International date! i.e. August 7 :D (so in a way, we will have this occurrence twice this year!)

estromberg 06/ 3/2009 #

I like my cards store bought or tear out, written and stamped. Thanks!!

itsbettertoknit 06/10/2009 #

Also in australia it would be postmarked 8/7/9 would that matter?

myrrhmaid 06/10/2009 #

That's fine, itsbettertoknit! :))

I can't tell you how many times I thought of creating this very swap--without ever getting a round to it! LOL Thanks myrrhmaid!


myrrhmaid 06/21/2009 #

Hi, If you are willing to receive postcards out of an envelope that are written on, please feel free to stay in my 07/08/09 postcard swap. Otherwise, it might be best for you to drop the swap. I can't have specifications outside of the swap description. It makes me and the swappers nervous. This is just a postcard friend to friend written on, posted naked. Thanks for your understanding. Laura

GabiesMom 06/22/2009 #

I hope my partners mail on that date (07/08/09) if at all possible. Thanks in advance = )

CWarner 06/22/2009 #

I will try my darndest to mail on 07/08/09 and will ask at the post office that they hand-cancel my cards with a nice postmark that's very legible. So many of the cards go thru the machines and you can't even read the postmark dates. Hoping my partners can do the same!

robotlove 06/23/2009 #

Thanks for the head's up on that @CWarner I'll be sure to ask my post office to do the same.

myrrhmaid 07/ 1/2009 #

My apologies for the delay in assigning partners. I had connectivity issues. We are now on though! Thanks for your understanding! L

Tia 07/ 6/2009 #

I will post that I sent my postcards since they are addressed and ready to go but I am planning on taking them to the post office on Wed. so that the postcard will have the actual 07-08-09 date on it! Another great swap, Myrrhmaid! :) Tia

itsbettertoknit 07/ 8/2009 #

Sent first thing this morning before the post office opened. So should be post stamped 8.7.9 if they do there job right. Taking 5 children into a postoffice is like a bull in a china shop. Except instead if breaking its the I wanting.

Lori 07/ 8/2009 #

Sent mine earlier today as well. Keeping my fingers crossed that it has today's postmark!

carol 07/ 8/2009 #

Sent out this afternoon! So close to 4:59, I almost waited, but they close too close to 5!

Tia 07/ 8/2009 #

I was disappointred that the handstamp actually says July 8, 2009. I wanted to see 07-08-09! Oh well!

ArtsOnFire 07/ 9/2009 #

my sent date i n SB is 7.9.9, but they were stamped at the post "7.8.9"

enchantability 07/ 9/2009 #

I sent yesterday on 7/8 but forgot to mark as sent!

camelsamba 07/11/2009 #

Same here @Tia one of mine says "JUL 8 2009" and the other says "08 JUL 2009" [European style :^]. No 7 to be seen. Oh well!

guiswapbot 07/15/2009 #

Oh, my! This is kind of date mass! Here in Brazil, we use day/month/year date format. So, I was waiting until 7/August/2009 to send my postcards! Sorry my partners! I will send them today.

myrrhmaid 07/16/2009 #

It's o.k. Guiswapbot. Accidents and oversights happen. That is why I said it wasn't required to send on 7/8/9. We all need some leeway every once in a while! Thanks for your communication and honesty! oxo L
