Jeanne was so wonderful to trade with in many ways. First of all the trade was incredible. We both got things we really wanted. She went out of her way to make sure I was happy, which was so wonderful. She has GREAT communication and let me know what was happening every step of the way and was also just plain personable. I really liked dealing with this wonderful woman and wouldn't hesitate to trade with her again. She is highly recommended indeed! Also, everything was labeled and marked well, to help keep me organized. :-)

I received a wonderful box from Jeanne in the October OBF swap. She sent a great selection of plants (from my "wants" list!!) and some fun seeds....even goodies for the kids!
**A super sweet lady & an awesome trader.**

Jeanne hosted the Theme Garden Swap that ended December 2008. I received my instructions in a timely manner; thread was regularly updated; she was flexible as circumstances dictated; she honored my request to not return as many seeds as sent (this was important! :]); and the seeds coming back to me were returned in very good time. Positive experience. :]

Jeanne was a wonderful hostess for the Theme Garden Swap in Dec 08. She sent everything out as promised and I was very happy to participate in her swap! Great seeds and great hostess!

I totally agree!!! The 2008 Theme Garden Swap, hosted by Jeanne, was incredible. She provided complete and understandable instructions, kept us all up to date on the progress of the swap, and managed to pull it all together very timely and without a hitch. If the seed package I received was any indication of the others, Jeanne managed to hostess a very successful and enjoyable large group swap. Congratulations Jeanne, you certainly deserve a big thumbs up!

Jeanne was a fantastic hostess for the Theme Garden Swap. She obviously spent a lot of time trying to make things as special as possible for everyone.
She did a great job!

Jeanne put a LOT of work into the Theme Garden Swap and made it look effortless! Looking at the STUFFED envelope on my desk right now, she certainly put a lot of thought into what would be prefect for each person's themes! I didn't even know about some of these and never would have thought about others for my themes! Thank you so very much, Jeanne!!!!! I am thrilled with what I received! Oh, and let's not forget the wonderful little parcels she put together for the children of the participants who express an interest in gardening. My two boys were tickled with their packages, which not only included seeds for their particular garden beds, but a lovely note and candy cane! That was a wonderful touch, Jeanne, and eased their winter blues a little.

I, too, was very amazed at what a wonderful job Jeanne did organizing such a huge swap with the Theme Garden one like she did that concluded this month. She had a lot going on in her personal life, but still went above and beyond with the swap. She invited me to the round robin, which I was totally intimidated of since I'm a new trader and a new gardener, but she helped me feel right at home.

I can't thank you enough, Jeanne, for inviting me to the round robins to begin with, but particularly in helping me with my first round robin experience!

Blessings,
Angela

Jeanne's 07' garden theme swap was my first experience w/ round robins as a newbie I was anxious but, found instructions easy to follow and totally enjoyed myself. I guess she would be my first "enabler"!! It was wonderful checking out all those seed packs! What a lot of work it must of been to keep it all organised.

Thank you I'm totally hooked

Just finished a wonderful trade with Jeanne, she's a great and dependable person to trade with and I highly recommend her! I traded for seeds for a chocolate garden for my 8-year-old granddaughter, and she very kindly added some adorable chocolate-themed seed packets and some seeds from my Want list for myself. The seeds also arrived very quickly and beautifully packaged.
Thanks so much, Jeanne!

She is my swap partner and the hostess for the GW Round Robin November Seeds N Stitches Swap. She has been a really great hostess and sent me a Norwegian Chicken pincushion and a homemade Thanksgiving card - both are awesome and beautiful. I will treasure them. Will gladly trade with her in the future. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!! :-)

Best to you and many, many thanks,
Sandra

Got some awesome Canadian Columbine, Bright Yellow Dahlia, and Regal Trumpet Lily seeds from sandlapper_rose for the Secret Santa Swap! I have never grown Dahlia or Trumpet Lily seeds so these will definitely be fun! I was also excited to see what Dahlia seeds look like - I tried to find some on my Dahlias and couldn't ever figure out what were the seeds. Now I know! The Canadian Columbine seeds look really interesting - I definitely don't have those kind and they are so pretty! Very generous. She included some adorable Christmas stickers along with a cute card. Thank you!!!

I received a wonderfully packed full box from Jeanne in my 1st FOTESS swap in January where our task was to upcycle something (repurpose with a greater use than the 1st). She sent a card, a sheet sewn into a notebook sized tote bag, a homemade wire hanger for a piece of a butterfly wind chime dangle, a fabric bag of window blind markers tied with raffia & a silk flower, home printed seed envies reusing misprinted computer paper, plus a twix bar. Jeanne welcome me into the group & made sure my 1st swap was over the TOP! Thank you, Jeanne!

Thanks Jeanne- Sincerely, Jen

Jeanne was a wonderful host for the theme garden swap. She did a wonderful job keeping the participants informed and updated. She had amazingly fast turn around to get the seeds back out to us-1,984 packs of seeds. Wow, she has my admiration and respect.

Jeanne did a wonderful job as host to the 2011-12 Theme Garden Swap. She keeps you up to date as how the swap is moving, makes sure all packages are sent back with delivery confirmation #'s. She is very prompt and sticks to deadlines. In this last swap she sent a very nice thank you letter and a yummy little treat. I loved the seeds I received and look forward to joining again next year!

Theme Garden 2014, that was a wonderful experience. She put her delightful spin on things and nothing stops her, not even a wind storm and downed trees knocking out her power/internet.
