Carmen-What a great idea. I didn't know what to send but thought cash would be utilized to buy what was needed. So I donated cash a couple of days ago. I would hope everyone would take the oportunity to donate if they are able:) The people of Haiti are in a desperate situation and need all the help they can get.

Picked up a few more surprises for this months exchanges. Once I get a name, I will create the box just for them.

Glad to see an additional member joining. I hope we can get a few more to join up. If not, we will still have fun.

Weather here was warmer today but sprinkles fell on and off and the air is damp. Mud everywhere and it is so ugly. I can't wait til the spring flowers begin to bloom. I have different varieties that will bloom in progression through the spring into the summer. Can't wait.

Hope everyone had a great weekend, Margo

Hi
Glad to see a couple more have signed up ~~ I can hardly wait -- this should be so much fun!! I have already picked up some things that I think will be perfect to send.
flowersareforme ~ I picked up some boxes today at the PO --there is a small priority that is about 9" x 6" x 2" -- or there is a small flat rate that is about 8.5 x 5 x 1.75 - were either of these what you were suggesting for the swap?

Hope some more of the "Lurkers" get signed up ~~ the more the merrier!!

Cold and windy here today. We are having flurries but the snow just blows around and doesn't cover up the ugly mud. It is supposed to get even colder this weekend. Hurry up spring.

The close of the swap I changed the time,to 7 am on the 29th of Jan.(tommorrow)
Reason being is I have to be gone all day.And I will be in location to do my shopping.Instead of returning to save gas.
So if there are any more takers-lurkers you have time to join.

My box is wrapped, packed, addressed and ready to go. I am going to send it tomorrow since I have to be in town anyway and work on Monday. I have some stuff that was supposed to go out today but the weather was so bad, I did not venture out so that has to go out tomorrow as well.

I hope Tracy enjoys everything. I will post the DC on the 8th.

I just got a wonderful package from Briel (hyenas). She sent me lovely gifts, that she made... and that I love. Included were a beautiful beaded braclet, a corn husk doll, a mini basket, a table cloth(with hand stitched hearts on it) AND a lovely mini tea cup and saucer from her niece, Jena. A hand made valentine card with a bag of lavender seeds ( one of my favorites, by the way). All was lovingly put together and made a really nice Valentines surprise for me... So Nice!! A big Thank-you!! deb

Hi,

Looks like the boxes are arriving -- I recieved mine today from our host, flowersareforme. Wow ~~ it contained:

~~ gardening gloves -- can always use new gloves!
~~ hershey's kisses -- yummy
~~ seed baggies -- perfect, just used my last one the other day
~~ a heart shaped wind twister -- cute!
~~ craft sticks -- I think they will make colorful plant labels -- if I can keep them away from my BF's daughter!
~~ 3 packs of stickers -- I heart scrapbooking!!
~~ a "green" memo pad -- very cool
~~ jar of calendula salve -- can't wait to try it!
~~ LOTS of seeds -- wow
~~ and a very nice card!!

everything was all wrapped up and covered with stickers and hearts! :)

I had a tough day today -- my grandma recently was diagnosed with breast cancer -- today we met with the cancer doctor to discuss the chemo and radiation, she'll start chemo next week. Then to top it off, it had to start snowing -- so I drove the 45 miles home on slippery, slushy roads -- uuuggh, so tired of snow.

Anyway -- after such a trying day, I ABSOLUTELY LOVED coming home and finding my valentine's package in the mailbox -- it was just the "pick me up" I needed!!

I can't thank you enough, Robin(flowersareforme), for your lovely gifts and your generosity!!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

Hope you all have a great evening!!
Crystal (crisann)

My number is correct. It just wasn't showing up for some reason. I don't know if the weather held it up or what. It is definitely on the way.

Crystal, I hope everything works out for your grandmother. I know this is a trying time so be sure to take care of yourself. Margo

Wow, Thanks! Everyone on gardenweb is so caring! I really appreciate it! My Grandma is 75, still works part-time and is a very active, strong woman. She is also very strong willed ~~ she says she will beat this cancer ~~ and I believe her!! Thanks for your kind thoughts and prayers!

Crystal

So, I was commenting to my husband about why the heck the box had not arrived and when all was said and done, he tells me he did not send it priority. I am so sorry if the package did not arrive in time today. I will use parcel post if the packages I send are not time constricted and not so far away. A trip across the country should have meant priority. The DC number has not updated since the 11th so not sure where the box really is. I mailed it last Sunday and even PP would possibly get it there today but with the assortment of weather the country has been getting, my guess it will be late.

I hope the box is worth the wait. Next time, I will take it. Margo

Sorry I didn't post the contents of my box sooner. It was one of those weekends.

In my box from Jenny, I found
A dark chocolate candybar, the kind with chilis in it
Baileys chocolate candies
Flower shaped photo frame magnet
Pomegranate hand lotion, smells yummy
A wooden knic knack with the word "garden"
A hand made dish rag which she explained she knits with her grandmother. My dil has made a few of these for me and they are great. She has told me they make great face cloths too so I am going to use this for that purpose so it can be just for me. :)
A neat magnetic bookmark which is going to be quite handy.
Homemade seed envelopes with pretty little paper clips attached to each one along with a pretty pen.
Several great packages of seeds.

Thank you Jenny for the great box of goodies. I am enjoying candy as I type.

Purpleacres has not posted because she hasn't received her box yet. I hang my head in shame and keep kicking myself in the butt for not taking care of shipping it myself since it was so time sensitive. I am truly sorry it was not there on time. Since there is no mail delivery today, she should have it tomorrow.

Margo

Yesterday was a holiday but I got my packages today! That's right, lucky me I got two! :)

A lovely box from our host with some wonderful lavender soap, salve, COOKIES and other goodies. :)

And a box from bigmama FULL of succulents. :)

She says that her computer has a virus and she can't get online. She says to thank Crystal for the lights, they were just what she needed and thanks to flowersareforme for setting up the exchange.

I also got a thank you card from Deb. Very sweet and I can't tell you how thrilled Jena was to get her own letter!

This was a great swap, and it all because of awesome gardenweb members!

*HUGS*
