NEW: Hippity hop....time to do a bunny swap!

debbya_gw(z4IL)February 28, 2006

Hippity Hop... I'm ready to host my first ~BUNNY SWAP !

Sign up on this thread, but send me your private info. by email----DA1763@aol.com.

For the next few weeks I'll be taking names/addresses.

March 25th will be the LAST day to sign up for the ~BUNNY SWAP~.

On March 27th~ I'll email you with your ~Bunny Swap~ Pal's name/address. You will have plenty of time to prepare your SPECIAL ~Bunny Swap~ box! All Bunny boxes should be mailed by *PRIORITY*. Delivery confirmation is up to you!

All ~Bunny Swap~ boxes should be mailed to your Pal on *APRIL 7th*. That way the box has PLENTY of time to reach its destination. Also, so your Pal has some time to enjoy/display any bunny items!

We don't want any sad/disgruntled bunnies in this swap! If you don't intend to send, please don't sign up! Communication is the key to a successful swap!

Please post here with any wants/dislikes/allergies, so your Pal has a basic idea of what items to include in your swap box!

Also, PLEASE post when your box is sent/received! No one enjoys worrying about if the box arrived. Also, it takes just a minute to write a quick "Thanks".

Let's make this a successful swap! Please post here if you have to drop out for any reason. If I'm forgetting anything, please let me know!

Boxes should contain a themed item or two (it's really up to you), bulbs/seeds/garden related items/crafts-- I'm sure are all welcome! This is why posting your 'wants' helps so much! Maybe you have enough seeds, don't want any bulbs, etc.

Just a thought.. April usually has warmer weather in most areas. A few might want to send plants/cuttings, along in the box. Please post if you don't want any "LIVE" plant material sent. Or if you are looking for a few special plants/starts and its OK to receive in April, feel free to post a few 'plant wants'.

Let's start the fun!

Thanks!

Me too!!! Me Too!! I'll be going back to MD for Easter so I can have my package sent to my daughters house and can plant stuff at my own house. Hope that's not too confusing for my pal but I'll send just the "right" address for this swap.
Deb, you have been a super pal and I'm sure you will be a wonderful hostess too. Have fun. BB

Julie,
Yes, post a brief "wish" list here. It gives your Pal a basic idea what your interested in, and what you don't want. Also, please list any allergies-chocolate/nuts or if your on a diet or diabetic. I'm sure a few Chocolate bunnies/cadbury eggs will be added in a few boxes! ;)

I laugh when I say this but.... "Nobody sticks to the price limits". They are generally treated as "suggestions" certainly not rules.
For anybody new to these swaps I'd like to say, shop with the size and shape of the flatrate Priority mail box in mind. There are two shapes. Both seem to contain about the same volume but one is flat and the other is deeper. Pick them up at the PO(free) and use them. With any other type box, if you go ONE ounce over..... you pay the rate for the next whole pound. You can go to the USPS website and calculate what the postage will be before you mail though the scale at the PO always has the last word.
Shirley.... It is good to see you back in here with the gang. I'm trying to talk my daughter into joining too. This should be a ton of fun. BB

I received a great suggestion by email. Close the swap a little earlier so everyone will have a little more time to shop/prepare the box. It really is a good idea, there is still plenty of time to sign up!

**NEW** Cutoff date to sign up for the ~Bunny Swap~
March 18.
Your ~Bunny Swap~ Pal's Name/address will be sent on March 19, by email.
April 7, will still be the date to mail the boxes out by priority.

I do agree, its so hard to stick to a limit on a swap! Everyone is going to spend different amounts (some more/some less) and that's fine. Plus, if someone is sending plants, bulbs, seeds, crafts. You can't really put a price on them. But, try not to spend more than $20. Sound good?

Here In the North our Plants & bulbs are covered yet
but a few might get thawed by easter never know :))
as for the cost It should be what you are able to
afford to give even if it might be hand made is nice.

the main thing in these swaps is to take the time
& put thought into a box try to give a theme as to what
your friend might can use for their gardens .
besides the chocolates :)))) just my 2cents.

now my list seeds or plant( NO HOUSE PLANTS PLEASE)
Japanese irises
louisiana Irises I have gamecock
Japanese toad lilies
dahlia blue bell
candy lilies
bunny grass
Hardy Glads
red butterfly bush
Veronica white
named daylily seed's
canna :))
lily of Nepal *****
Asiatic lily *** Centerfold
Turk Cap LIlies Any

I like windchimes, birdhouses, peanut butter cups :))
mallow cups, rice crisppies squares so do my BIRDS:))
I Have at this time 15 Cockatiels , 11 up for adoption,
3 baby kittens 4 adult cats NEighbors cats but live here 24/7 rent free .
into pilates ?? exercise need videos please :))
girls these are not as easy as they make then look
when you have my weight on you :))
well guess I better get my day going .
as i say we can put our dreams on paper & even if we recieve 1 that is a great start :)))
DOING THE BUNNY HOP :))

Hello all,

Glad to be in this swap:) A little about me, I am a stay at home mom to a 2 and half yr old and 7 month old. We love being outside and playing in the dirt. My older DD found some seeds and wanted to go outside and plant them, she mimiced planting the seeds. We are putting in a fairy garden for the girls too, with lots of bunny and frog houses. What I would like is for the package to be geared to my 2 girls, Rhiannon and Peyton, I have gotten 2 packages from swaps in the last weeks and Rhiannon has claimed some of the things in them, so would love to have a package themself. They love any and all seeds, candy, garden stuff, anything. Keep in mind that Rhiannon can make hours of fun out of old spools and clip on earings:) We have no alergies and lots of room to plant and grow.

Time to post my wish list. I'm working on what is essentially a "New" garden back East where I plan to retire (soon I hope) so I can find a space for anything.
I like daylillies, anything blue or purple or white, most any perennial or herb. I'd love some forsythia and or lilac cuttings This is my #1 choice but if it is something you don't have, don't fuss about it. They do not need to be rooted. Plant labels or small plastic pots, most anything really.
Non garden things like chocolate with nuts, dark chocolate or chocolate with caramel.
Smallish ear rings.
Chap sticks
smelly candles
I have not even decided on colors yet for my new house but green is always safe. It's my favorite color.
I drink coffee and tea, Love Earl Gray.
Any surprise you choose will be welcome and appreciated.

That's one hard question to answer! Well, some *might* want to display a few of the bunny items for a couple of days before packing all the Easter/bunny stuff away. Hey, that sounds very logical! ;) And some *might* want to take the chocolate out of the box so it doesn't melt. It really gets hot in those boxes! Hmmm? Still thinkin'.. some *might* want to plant seeds/bulbs ASAP! After all, we only have a limited amount of time before it's just too late to plant anything! LOL!

Hi all!

Is it the 19th yet? *giggles*

Hope everyone is having a great week! Storms seemed to be raging everywhere over the weekend. Hope everyone is well and safe!

Yes, sweetkitten51, I am in the NW corner of Iowa. We had about 7 inches of snow but a lot has melted in the last two days. The weatherman says more is on the way....c'monnnnnnnn Spring!!! I am going to a perennial workshop on Saturday and hope the weather doesn't interfere.

Named daylilies or named daylily seeds
Seed starting supplies like cell paks or trays (no peat pellets or pots - don't work for me)
Birdhouses (small)
Windchimes
Incense ("house" smells like vanilla, cinammon, patchouli, etc.)
Garden decor like angels, cherubs, frogs, gnomes, etc.
Neat rocks (small of course!)

Diane,
I didn't have a chance to go through my emails yet, I will tonight. I've been sooo busy doing yardwork/housework and everything else in between! My Husband can't help at all with his broken toes. He's been going back and fourth to the Dr's. Finally, the stitches came out yesterday. He was transfered to a specialist, because the toe wasn't really looking too much better. We found out that his toe (bones) were shattered in a bunch of pieces (new x-rays were taken) . That night at the emergency room they never mentioned anything like that. They only said he broke two toes. I hope he gets better soon! He's a carpenter, and has to be on his feet all day. Anyways, I'm really feeling the effects of doing everything, Calgon take me away! ;)

Hello,
I wanted to post a "wishlist" to make it a little easier for my Bunny Swap "Pal".

*** THINGS I LIKE ***

Any kind of animal figurines for my flower beds. Concrete, Resin, or Plastic if it looks like Concrete or Resin.

Dragonflies.

Hummingbirds.

Metal Things for Outside Decorating.

Chickens.

Butterfinger and Zero Candy Bars.

Hanging Baskets.

Cast Iron.

Peeps.

Gazing Balls.

Scrapbooking.

Wildflowers.

Metal Signs related to gardening or the outdoors.

Black Jelly Beans.

Birdbaths and Birdfeeders.

Dogs.

Peanut Butter.

Candles that smell like Blueberries, Peaches, or Cookies.

Fish and Fishing.

Garden Gadgets.

And the one thing that would really make my day if my Bunny Swap Pal has access to one. A pill counting tray, the kind used by pharmacists. It would make counting and bagging those little bitty seeds so much easier!

*** SEEDS I CAN STILL USE THIS YEAR ***

Ornamental Peppers.

Eggplant.

*** THINGS I DON'T LIKE ***

Angels.

Trolls or Gnomes.

Squirrels.

My Ex-Wife.

Candles that smell like Perfume.

Cats.

Statues of People or Naked Babies.

Snickers or any other Candy Bars with Peanuts.

************

I hope this makes the task a little easier.

"MikeyJoe"
Michael

Wish list.... I do have one posted on the page. It was small so I guess it blended in. ") I have a 4 year old little girl. So anything child friendly for the garden. We have a small pond, and of course bulbs and perennials. Anything locally based...food or knick-nack wise. Anything for the birds or butterflies. Were open.
Thanks,
Monica

Yes, send the box out when your ready! More time to display all those bunny goodies! Plus, any bulbs, seeds get planted sooner.

I just hope no one will be gone (on vacation) when the boxes start arriving. If so, please let your Pal know in advance!
