2) This was my 100th swap!
Congrats!! It made me wonder how many I've done and turns out 123 completed with 1 more in progress for a total of 124. Cool. Grin


I'm starting to worry that maybe PFD's card got lost amongst my massive piles of junk mail... I'm gonna have another look through them in a bit!
Hrm...hope not! Let me know if I need to resend. Yours was (probably obviously) the most unique mailing address of the lot but I tried to be VERY careful writing it out.  Cheesy

Random question about Craftster Card storage, if no-one minds Cheesy

I am storing mine in 9 pocket card folder inserts - I have them anyway for making pocket letters, it makes them easy to flick through and protects them nicely.

What I can't decide is whether to store all the same Craftsters together or whether to store in sets - Rd 1, Rd 2, etc.

I currently have them stored in rounds, but as each round doesn't completely fill the final insert, it is annoying the OCD side of me  Undecided

Any ideas?

I received from Roler today, yay Cheesy! That is my last card this round, wah  Cry.

I've got mine in the 9 space pages as well. At first I had them in rounds, now I've got cards from each person side by side with the middle pocket empty. That's where I plan to put a card with other info about people, if we've swapped, met, etc. I will have to rearrange for each round I'm sure but I don't mind looking through them all over and over again, they are so special Smiley.

I am also using the 9-pocket sleeves. For Round 1 - they all fit because I didn't add my own card in.
This round, there are empty spaces on/in the last page because I did include my card, several of them. I might just cut pretty paper to fill in the blanks.

Little boxes for me- 1 per round (although, I admit, right now they are in a small plastic tub until the boxes are finished)! I keep each card in a sleeve, and every once in a while I shuffle through the stack.

I'm storing mine in the 9 pocket cards as well.  What I did to separate the sets was start each round with my photo and add in the cards in the order I receive them.  I know.  It sounds vain, but really it is the only way I can tell them apart.  Plus mine was the first card that I received in each round.  LOL.

I had another idea about these cards that I wanted to float around to everyone.  What does everyone think about a custom deck of cards?  jellybean89 made an awesome card that she had printed here: http://www.makeplayingcards.com/design/custom-blank-card-traditional-size.html
The great thing is that you can put a different design on the front and back of ALL of the cards so we could make a deck with 52 different craftsters or maybe 26 if we can't find 52 people to play with us.  We could either make a playable deck and have a common back...maybe with the Craftster logo and ourselves with the various card faces on the other side.  Another nice thing is that we could each order our own deck so maybe this would be more like a personal swap which would keep the logistical nightmare of all that tracking go away.  Any thoughts?

Oh, so like we coordinate to design our own card, when everybody is ready their version gets sent to the company and we all order our own deck to be sent to us? Wow, a lot to coordinate but what a cool idea. Nobody has to pay for postage either, just the cost of the deck. Neat-o!

It looks like they have options to order less than 54 card sets too.

Aaagh, that is awesome!  Shocked I did the Craftster ATC page-a-day calendar a few years back; this would have been much easier and cheaper!

Love the idea of a set of playing cards  Grin

And thank you for all of your ideas, I am going to try grouping them and see what I think
