    I am down.
    We would need to get a comprensive list of current Vegas knotties and their dates. Perhaps one of the old marrieds would care to contribute a thing or 2 so the first recipient doesnt receive just an empty box...

    VG- any insight?

    I'm down; I can see it getting pretty interesting with some of the random stuff people could find on Vegas post cards lol.

    I'm on the DW board and I can say that the KK is one of the best traditions!  I can't wait to get mine.  I think it's a wonderful tradition and really bonds us

    My mom's into scrapbooking and all that good stuff; if no one is feeling motivated to create it to get things started I could possibly ask her to throw something together.

    I was thinking about that too but postcards are probably the only thing you can easily find in every hotel gift shop in vegas that can also be written on and attached to something.

    I say VG's mom should make it! I ike the postcards idea the best just because they are so easy to write on, and, like VG said, they are sold everywhere.

    I know!!! We could write on those Hooker cards they flick at you on the strip!!!

    I like this idea! I do have a question though, when it gets to heavy or full does a new one get created? Just in the DW post there seemed to be 3 different KKs in the pictures.

    But those are the only kind I get... lol

    I think that the one on the DW board has had to be replaced a few times due to loss- not positive though.

    Do we have a master list of current knotties and their dates? I am on the DW board as well, and I had to email my date/address/leave date to a person who runs the list.

    I love the poker chips idea!  You can usually get them at the gift shops, too.  I actually have a Mandalay Bay one that I carry with me all the time.  It could be glued to ribbon!


    Just a thought :)

    What?!!?? I'll get right on that!
  • edited December 2011
    What about this:

    VG (or I can, too) creates a list of people who want to participate and then puts them in order of their wedding dates. Then VG can make it a sticky and it can be updated by him when more people want to participate. That way you can just PM your address to the person before you on the list (or have them send it to your hotel room?).

    I also think Sara, Direy, and Smokey (and all the other hags) should send some postcards to VG and he can give those to his mama to make it. That way the first person has some expert advice and the hags don't feel left out ;)
  • edited December 2011
    I can design the first one if VG's mom is not up for it. I happen to be a scrapbooker/crafty person and have more than a fair share (meaning expensive and too much) of scrapbooking items to create it. I have been even thinking about how to make the sign water/spill proof. I can send it to VG or whoever is going to add the first post cards.

    Could you laminate the sign?? :)

    Also, CJ, I think Sara said something about certain hotels charging fees to have packages delivered there :S  Even though it'd be one more thing to haul to Vegas... :)

    Laminating the initial sign would be a good idea.

    I think that starting a thread for people who want to participate would get a little out of hand, even if turned into a sticky. My suggestion would be to have someone who wants to coordinate the whole thing start a post stating to PM them or email them with their dates and then the coordinator can keep a running list. This post can be made sticky. Otherwise we will constantly have to look at the sticky at the top of the page and sort through it to find who is next. Or VG will have to stay on top of the list to edit the sticky post.

    Should probably start another post calling out for the old marrieds who want to participate to contact the coordinator for an address to mail their item to. Whoever is putting together the initial sign (nataliet02 or VG's mom) can be the address or the coordinator can mail it all to them, whichever.

    Yeah definitely laminating would be good.  I don't mind either way on who makes it; my mom's old and bored so she has free time if everyone else is busy LOL.

    TK does have some random glitches.

    So CJ- do you want to start getting a list together of those who would be interested? I am kind of miming the one of the DW board since they seem to have it down pretty seamlessly with how it is managed.

    I would be up for this! I will have to be the english influence on the KK, as I only have one Vegas postcard and it is on our fridge! I do have some poker chips and a few cute bits and pieces that could be attached to it. Whoever wants to take ownership of it, let me know!

    If I do make the first KK I would want to send it to someone. I am still far away from my wedding date and would not want to read any of the postcards until my day. If they are sent to me I will read them and then I think it will defeat the purpose for me. Just a thought.

    VG-ask your mom and if she says no then I can do it. Christmas is kinda busy and all.
