Raise your hand if, in your collection, you have some (ahem) "unattractive" notecards? Or, if you prefer, "hideous"?! Let's face it, if you're like me and a card lover, you have probably collected some cards over the years that you find, well, disgusting. Or dull. Or you used to like them. But that was 1989 and creepy pantomime clowns were all the rage then. You know what I mean--maybe there's SOMEONE out there who might like this card, but who knows when you'll ever run into her? Or him. Or whoever has been living in a cave and doesn't know better. I don't know about you, but guilt causes me to hang onto these things, thinking one day I'll have a purpose for them.

Today's the day! I've found their special purpose! A swap!

So, pick out that ugly card, write a message in it, slap a stamp on it, and wave it "buh-bye!" Perfect solution. It's gone. It fulfilled it's purpose in life, someone else can throw it out if they so chose, and everyone's happy!

As a special gift, I'll make this swap with 5 partners, so you can really clean house. I know everyone's tastes are different, so don't be surprised if you get a card you don't think is that bad. Also, don't admit to it. (You never know if it's you with bad taste.)

Finally, DON'T SEND ANY EXTRA UGLY CARDS! WE DON'T WANT ANY MORE--WE JUST GOT RID OF FIVE! (Other, cuter extras are welcome.)

Ok people, we don't have enough to send five cards to, so we'll have three partners. Looking forward to it!
