new: bump's mnf mayday, mayday swap
Hello Everyone! And welcome to the MNF May Swap! Dan is busy with the Blue Seed Swap, so I'm going to host this swap for him. Since this is my first time hosting a swap (has an animal ever done this?), he's agreed to look assist me. So, ready for the rules on this one? I'm going to be changing things just a little, but I think you humans will enjoy it!
Sign-ups for this swap will be until midnight Saturday, May 2nd.
Everyone knows that we cats have 9 lives, so I think it would be nice if everyone sent 9 types of seeds, bulbs, or plants in their box. For example, Linda could send Dan 2 varieties of cosmos, 3 of coneflowers, some daffodil bulbs, 2 wisteria plants, some onions, and some basil, and that would equal 9 types. 2+3+1+1+1+1=9 Or, Wendy could send Fran 9 different types of roses, and that would fulfull her requirement!
Also, since this is a Mayday, Mayday swap, it would be nice if everyone would include at least one helpful item in their box. Some examples of this would be plant markers, a garden journal, a wheelbarrow (just kidding on that one!), plastic seed bags, or a nice set of pruners.
Now, here comes the twist. First, obtain a small flat-rate box from your local post office, if you don't keep them in stock at your house. Then, fill it with the 9 seeds, bulbs, and plants, your helpful item, and then anything else you think would be nice to recieve. Put a small card or note in your box, and seal it up. This all needs to be done by midnight of May 2nd. The idea is for you to NOT KNOW who will receive your box while you are filling it up!
Then, once all the boxes are sealed, I will privately e-mail you the name and address of who you are to send your box to. Sometime between May 4th thru the 9th, mail your box out with a delivery confirmation notice. Post the dc# here on this thread, but DO NOT say who you sent to! That way, everyone will be tracking the packages, wondering which one is coming to them!
Once you receive your box, post the contents and sender here on the swap thread, and also post a note on the rate and review forum for your sender.
. MOST IMPORTANTLY... HAVE FUN WITH THIS!!!
Here's a list of dates we'll all need to remember for this swap...
. APRIL 18th to MAY 2nd: Sign-up and fill a small flat-rate box with goodies. Sign-up here, and send an e-mail to me (using Dan's e-mail address) with your name, address, and garden web name.
. MAY 3rd: Receive the name and address of who you are sending your box to. DO NOT TELL ANYONE WHO YOU ARE SENDING TO.
. MAY 4th to MAY 9th: Send box with delivery confirmation number, and post the number here on the thread.
. UPON RECEIPT OF YOUR BOX: Leave a review in the Rate & Review forum, and post here what your received, and from whom.
Dan said I can offer prizes to the first 3 people who get their boxes sent out. So, let the May(hem) begin! Meow!
