"They we were..."

Lol I wonder if anyone can tell I stayed up all night to go black friday shopping. I finally caught a cat nap on the couch and the postman woke me up. So I posted real fast, half heartedly, then crashed. Lol oops!!

HAh! Shows how much I noticed! I didn't even see that until you pointed it out! I too stayed up all night and shopped! Left at 11 pm and back home at 8:30 the next morning! Couldn't go another drop! My sister and niece kept at it until 2:30 in the afternoon! Boy, I was tired, but lots of fun!

I'm packing, labeling and mail as fast as I can! I will be sending everything out tomorrow (20 packets for the swap and 20plus for newbies/extras)I thought I had cut back on the seed saving this year, but when I started packaging it seems I've got as much or more than last year....

Should get to you by mid-week. Sorry for being tardy.

Great fun, Ilovefarac!! I do say it is a good thing it only happens once a year. That gives us plenty of time to forget how tired we were, lol. I got up at 8:00 thursday morning, then stayed up all day left about 1:30 am then we got back around 12:00 pm. I came home did some laundry and as the 2nd load was drying I feel out, lol. 30 mins later the mailman was knocking at my door. My eye liner and makeup was every where but where it was suppose to be, and he wanted to talk, lol. Shoot I posted right after that then I climbed in bed and I didn't wake up till the next morning. When I woke up I felt like I had a hangover, lol.

Nan, you are not alone so no worries here.

We received 4 more packages today!! They are from esiuol, shanta_5, amybeth82 and a package I am not sure who it came from. If it is yours please let me know, sharon from missouri?? If I had to take a wild guess I would say it is sundog2010, though I am not really sure. If you posted your gardenweb name on here and I have overlooked it I do apologize.

Thank you esiuol for the extra seeds!!

Looks as if we have 47 packages here, wonderful!!

A lot are telling me thank you for hosting this swap but really you all should be thanking each other, you are the ones that have turned this into a great swap. I also want to say thank you to all of you that joined in. Almost time for me to bury my head in seeds. Someone requested me to take some pictures and I will be more than happy to do that.

Sounds good to me!!

I just spent the last three hours seperating seeds and putting everyones labels on their packages. I still have to finish organizing everything, but I have started. I took some pictures and to be honest it is a little surreal, lol. My mail runs about 3:00 cst, I will post in a little while with the pictures and of any news the mail man brings.

7" deep at least 2' wide, SEEDS!!!!!

Well we didn't get any packages today. As I promised here are a few pictures of all the wonderful packages and seeds.

The first picture was taken today before I emptied all of the packages. I flipped them on the back side just so no ones address would be shown, including my own.

The second picture is all of the seeds that we have received so far. There is nothing to scale in the picture but I did measure with my ruler that didn't want to stand up to be photographed. The highest part of the stack is 7 inches. The round bowl is at least 1.5 foot in diameter. The square container is another foot. The seeds on the left are private trades. I did let a few names be shown I hope that doesn't offend anyone.

It is not a real good show of it all but I was asked to show a picture and I said I would. I will say this now though, if token is unable to host next year, there is MANY things I will do different already. LOL

Carolyn, I meant to post earlier. Between long work hours and the few hours I get to sleep, I completely forgot that I signed up for this swap. I am jumping ship for now, but will definitely take part next year. HAVE FUN!!!

We received 5 more packages today!! They are from edie_h, palmetto_gardener, nan-6161, sundog2010 and velsgarden.

Velsgarden, I have to say I have never seen anything like that and it is extremely sweet!! I will not mention what it is because that will be a pleasant surprise for everyone. Very thoughtful and extremely unique, thank you!!

I have been busy getting everything ready to start in this seed frenzy we all have ventured into. I hope everyone is as excited as I am. I hope to get started as soon as possible, I won't start the actual swap part till all packages are received that are in transit right now. I know several more have mentioned that they sent them off so I am only waiting on them. I am very happy all of you all decided to join in, and I believe a lot of wishes are going to be filled.

If you didn't get to join us this year hopefully you will be able to join us next year.

Well we got 2 packages today, they were from erika_ct and Ellen from illinois. Ellen I didn't see your gardenweb id on the package if you put it on there and I overlooked it I do apologize.

Thank you erika_ct for the extra seeds for newbies!!

Well I was only expecting one package today but instead we got 2, which is great. I am assuming that is the last of the packages that are in transit. If you have a package in transit please let me know, otherwise I plan to start tonight actually here in a few minutes. I will check this thread throughout the evening, and of course I will be checking my email. Thank you EVERYONE for joining in!!

Ellen drop me a line and let me know what your garden web name is, either here or in email which ever you prefer.

Thank you, manda!

I just wanted to check in and let you all know that the swap is well on its way!!! I plan to have everything wrapped up by the end of the week. You all were so generous in this swap, that we may have to offer some sasbe's when it is all said and done. I hope that is alright. A lot of wishes have been filled. Only 2 have me pretty stumped, but I will work it out.

2 more weeks till winter solstice!!! I am excited!!!

I did like it, that was really sweet. I think the others will like it also.

Well you guys I hope not to give any false hopes but I think we are on the final rounds. I am shooting to be at the post office by friday, so far I am on track maybe a little ahead of schedule. I have a few finishing touches make sure all my i's are dotted and t's are crossed (I am not only ocd, but I am anal also, LOL). Looks unless I find a major mistake (cause I can sure pull some whopers now) you guys should have your packages back by mid next week. Plenty of time for you to do your search quests to find out what your new items are before december 21st.

I hope everyone is excited!!

I just popped by to apologise for not getting my package in. I forgot and there is no excuse except that the month just slipped away from me.

I wish you all a very happy holiday season and much productive WinterSowing!
I hope that I will be more organized next year. It was one of the best swaps last year and it looks like this year will not disappoint either!

All the best

So sorry for not watching this post. I am Ellen from Illinois and I am buturfliis_mom. Unless there is another Ellen from Illinois? I am so sorry for not putting my gweb name on my mail and seeds. I am getting very excited to try some new seeds, and I love wintersowing, so this was a perfect swap. Thanks for all your energy and work to arrange this. I wait for the solstice to start sowing so I am on the edge..... I have not finished holiday decorating either so I need to stop playing with my seed stash... hahaha.... I would rather play with the seeds.

Thanks again,

Hi! I received my package today. But I am missing some things.

I did 4 side swaps with people and only received 2 baggies in return.

I checked the list and it said there bubblie was received. Were my sideswap baggies not in there? And were all my baggies forwarded?

So sorry for the confusion Carolyn, other than that...I'm very happy with the seeds you chose for my bubblie. And need to look a couple of them up! :)

And velsgarden you did a fantastic job on those gift tags. Did they take long to do? They look like a fun winter project :)

Flowergirl, I think I was confused about that part. I guess I should of emailed you. I thought you were just giving those seeds to them. Cause the only seeds I got for you were the ones you got. I was curious about that though. I am so sorry I should of emailed you to ask!! That is my fault!!

Awesome Molanic!!! Few of the rarer seeds to go around but I did try to get them to go around as much as I could!!

So not counting the tag you got 13, send me an email, or I will send you one.

If anyone else has problems contact me!! Seriously, cause I don't want hard feelings about this swap at all!!

I had to use almost everyones garden web wish list. If it wasn't filled out I did my best, though I will say if I didn't have what you were looking for I tried to come close to it.

Nuttnhunee, just sent me an email and she wanted to say thank you to everyone for all of the newbie seeds. She is having trouble logging in but wanted to send her thanks and a happy holiday wishes to everyone!!

Lisa I sent you an email.

There may be a few others that got less than 20, I will be honest and the only reason for it is because matching up your list with the seeds I had was difficult. For those that did get less than 20 the seeds you did get were as close to your wish list as I could get. In my mind I figured giving quality instead of quantity was the best route. I hope I wasn't wrong in that regard!!

Carolyn, I got my seeds today - very nice! Thank you so much! This was your first hosting, wasn't it? It's a lot more difficult than most people who haven't hosted realize - I know I will be spending many, many hours sorting TGS.

I love the selection you sent me, although it was totally unnecessary to send the extra postage back. I'll use it in TGS, I'm sure.

Hope you are having nice cups of tea these days, and putting your feet up a little. Happy holidays!

It was extremely difficult!! Way harder than what I imagined, but at the same time I did learn a lot, so I won't dare complain.

Though to be honest I am not looking to be in any swaps no time soon, lol.

Good luck on your theme garden swap, I thought about joining it, but I just don't see it happening I even dropped out of alana's. :(

Hi Carolyn,

There's no need for an email...As I said I'm fine with it, I just wanted to let you know for future swaps. I have more seeds than I could ever plant right now!

I have done several swaps and there is always a few that have a tough wishlist, I feel your pain!

No Worries here

I guess my disadvantage was starting it so late and having such a short deadline to get everything back, whew. That was crazy!!

Oh and by the way, the gag gift was found for anyone wondering about it. All about it is posted on the other thread on the discussion side. LOL It was in edie_h's.

Hi all! Just thought I'd repost and let everyone know my side swaps are all worked out.

And I agree with everyone else, hosting these swaps can be a killer! But they are just too much fun to pass up.

And I'm thrilled with the seeds that you chose for me. I even have a new achillea to try! :) That baggie was worth a happy dance all by itself! :)

Happy Sowing everyone!

Hi, I was not a part of this swap but have been in contact with Ellie. She has not been able to log on to Gardenweb for several days and wanted me to post this for you guys.

I received my seeds and was delighted by the assortment. Lots of different
seeds that I am anxious to start in the greenhouse this spring. Thank you so very much. Have a great Christmas Season!
