2010 Color of the Month Swaps - organizing thread
This is an organizing thread for the 2010 edition of the Color of the Month swaps.
The color of the month swaps began last year when carroteggs posted the Purple Seed Swap thread in March. Other color swaps expanded from there.
Last year we held these swaps:
A few swaps that were scheduled were missed. The missed swaps were the white, pink and chocolate swaps.
I think these swaps were quite fun so it's time to organize a new round of Color of the Month Swaps for 2010.
PLEASE READ! Here are some guideline for hosting the Color of the Month Swaps:
*** Each Swap should be posted by the host/hostess during the first week of the designated month. The absolute latest a swap should be posted by is the 10th of the month so as to not get in the way of the next month's swap.
*** If you find that you can't host the swap that you were scheduled for, you need to find another volunteer to host that swap. We will try to provide a list of alternate volunteer hosts who might be willing to host your swap if you can't. You will receive an email reminder about a week before you are to post your swap. If the swap hasn't been posted by the 10th of the Month, then we will have to assume that you won't be hosting that swap and another host will be found. Three scheduled swaps didn't happen last year, so this is all just to make sure that the swaps happen.
*** Each Color of the Month Swap can include flowers, ornamentals, veggies, herbs and other edibles as long as they are the designated color or if the color is in the name of the variety.
If anyone has any comments, suggestions, opinions, or additions to make to the Guidelines, Lets hear them....
Okay, so let's organize a Color of the Month Swap schedule for 2010!!!!
Brandy is hosting the Green Seed Swap as I write this. Here is a link to join the Green Seed Swap : Green Seed Swap
Bonnie has requested to host the Red Seed Swap in July.
A few people have specifically requested Chocolate for the month of February (Valentine's Day!!!) This could include any flowers/edibles with Chocolate in the name and also anything with a darker maroon/brown color. We just need someone to volunteer to host this one.
There are 2 other color swaps that we missed last year (White and Pink) so I have tentatively scheduled those for the beginning of the year (as long as someone wants to host them).
So here is a tentative schedule for 2010:
January -- GREEN - Hosted by Brandy (brandymulvaine) Join swap here : Green Seed Swap
February -- CHOCOLATE - Needs a host/hostess
March -- PINK - Needs a host/hostess
April -- WHITE - Needs a host/hostess
May -- YELLOW (yellow)- Needs a host/hostess
June -- BLUE - Needs a host/hostess
July -- RED - Will be hosted by Bonnie (highalttransplant)
August -- PURPLE - Needs a host/hostess
September -- BLACK - Needs a host/hostess
October -- ORANGE - Needs a host/hostess
November -- BIG RAINBOW year end swap - Will be hosted by Penny (cybermeowz)
December -- open
This is just a tentative schedule. If we need to switch some things around to accommodate a host, then we can try to do that. If you can think of a different color you would like to host that would be good too.
So, if you would like to host one of the Color of the Month Swaps that doesn't have a host listed next to it, please let me know which color you would like to host in the comments.
Also, let me know if you would be willing to be a substitute host. This is in case anyone can't host the swap that they are scheduled for. If you are willing to be a substitute host, your name and email will be put on a list of people to contact if a host is unable to do their scheduled swap. I will send out an email after we have a final schedule, so that everyone has the list of substitute hosts.
