Sticker Train 7 is all shiny clean and ready for passengers! Every Bunny is welcome :D So hop to it and sign up to come aboard the happiest train around. Please sign up by Monday, March 28th To those of you, coming aboard for your first ride, thank you for joining us and please PM me your full name and mailing address. I promise this info will only be shared amongst fellow riders.

For any new bunnies just hopping aboard :D, our sticker trains travel down the tracks from one friend to another. We do plan and agree on a route once sign ups have been concluded and we know who is aboard (want to be sure our train is not hopping in all directions but on a clear, smooth route to the card recepient--aka final stop).  Kim was so kind to offer to begin this train and the card. Thank you, Kim, so our Train 7 will begin in OH. Where it will end and who with will be determined once sign ups are over.

For a fuller story on our trains please check out my first post in this older thread: http://www.paperbackswap.com/Sticker-Train-5-Completed/topic/306101/ Quick Re-Cap: when you receive the train have fun with the stickers! :) Feel free to choose however many sheets both half and full you would like to keep. We do ask that you contribute some new stickers aboard so there is always cargo and something new. # of stickers you take does not need to = exactly the # of stickers you put back in, this is all for fun. Please do remember to write a hello inside the card that will accompany the stickers. Who the card is for (train's last stop) will again be determined once sign ups are over. I want to be sure everyone who has participated gets to receive a card :)

That all said, everyone hop in with any suggestions or questions. These trains are not at all about me, but all of us, coming together as friends. I want everyone to feel included. Hugs and my sincere apology for the very quick turnaround on the last train in terms of deadline to sign up. I did feel badly about that and pray all of you know the last thing I'd ever want is for anyone to be left out :(  Holy Week starts this Palm Sunday and I will be a busier bunny at Church through Easter. I know some of you may be also, that is another reason for a longer sign up period this train around. Monday, March 28th again is the deadline to sign up. Thank you and All Aboard!

God Bless, Sweet Dreams, and a Hug to all! Thank you with all my heart for your friendships! :)

I was the one who spearheaded the last Sticker Train and I apologize for the lack of time given to those who may have wanted to join. I'm sorry,

A rousing welcome to Sophia and Cheryl!

Sophia, no need to apologize. I just jumped on getting sticker train 6 going because it seemed like not many sign ups and I thought a delay might cause folks to forget about it type thing.

Anyway, starting over and with much cheer for train 7 :)

ETA: I forgot to say in my original post a post-card reminder. Sandy T had the fun and great idea a few trains ago for anyone who wanted to also (in additition to signing the group card) include a postcard from your hometown for the card receipeint. If your town is too small for post cards maybe find a Google image or even just share a tale about where you live that you think the card recipient would enjoy. I picked up a few LA post cards today and that reminded me! :)

Welcome Sarah! Thank you for your PM. I just added you to our train docket! LOL, I am sitting here thinking how fun it would be to look through your sticker shoebox with you :)

Our passenger list is now: Sarah and Kim in OH, Cheryl and I in CA, and our friend Sophia in the middle in NE :) Who else? :)

I wish everyone a Blessed Palm Sunday

thanks!

i just dug out my shoebox... and started looking at all my stickers!

i have new stickers and "back in the day" stickers... im talking about old school 90's lisa frank and sandylion! those were my favorite! (i loved to collect them when i was little, but never wanted to "commit" to putting them all on things - so i still have full sheets! and now that im older [33 in april] its hard to find an excuse to use them! lol)

and i have stickers for every holiday, so i can't wait for future trains!

so glad i happened to stumble upon this thread :)

I'm glad you found this thread also. wow!!! You did save a lot of stickers! I do remember Sandylion! Do you have Mrs. Grossman, too? I use most of my stickers decorating cards. I have also found that every so often a scan (printed out) or an actual printed photo of a full sheet makes a neat home made card cover. So many sticker uses! If ever you come out here let me know and I will take you to a sticker store :) Also and this is an FYI for everyone, if you have a Lakeshore Learning store near you and sign up to receive emails, they will send you a free $5 tol use in store. Hooray for stickers and also trains :d

LOL, sorry Sarah for the Mrs. Grossman reminder. :d That is cool you sell Avon. My Grandma loved the skin so soft for so many years and different reaons, it even helped our doggie's dry fur :) ETA: Someone on here once told me Mrs. Grossman has an actual sticker factory in NorCal that you are able to (for a fee) tour. I've never done this but lol would be a great place for a Sticker Train meet up some day :)

Sticker Train 7 sign ups are closed. I will post more info once this train's card recipent has been chosen. I pray everyone had a very Happy and Blessed Easter, I sure did :)

Tuesday Update to say this train will carry a card for our friend Jeanne :) Jeanne thank you again for all you do on here in RAOK and I sure hope you will enjoy your card.

Train Route (I think, please let me know if this sounds right) will be:

Kim mailing to Sarah (both in OH)

Sarah mailing to Sophia in NE

Sophia mailing to Cheryl in NorCal

Cheryl mailing to me here in LA

I will mail to Jeanne in FL

I will PM each of you the name and mailing info for the person you are to (thank you :) send the packet off to. Okay? :)

When each of you gets the train please have fun with it! When you are able let us know you got it and if you want share what stickers you choose. I would also appreciate you posting when you mailed off the train just so everyone is kept in the loop and this thread remains more active.

Get ready for the train whistle!
