update: ghouls just wanna have fun - 2nd edition - part 2

vic_zn5October 4, 2008

This promises to be a spirited swap! Old ghoulfriends and new ghoulfriends are welcome to sign up. I promise to include lot's of corny Halloween jokes and bad puns, and the group will supply the camaraderie.

Don't be afraid to don your best pointy hat and join in, even if you have never participated in a plant swap before.

I would love to get this one back to basics with plants and a Halloween theme as the centerpiece. Remember that in this group sending plants is supposed to be fun! Send what you like and what you would be happy to receive and don't stress about having the newest and greatest. This is still a good time of year for most of us to plant daylilies and German iris and many perennials, and fall bulbs would be absolutely wonderful to send! If your zone limits the fall bulbs that can be grown in your area, please let me know-I will try to match you with someone who can accommodate you.

The rules:

1. You must be at least 18 to join this swap.

2. You must send at least 4 plants. With bulbs, each variety will be considered 1 plant. For example, if you send 8 tulip bulbs and 5 are Orange Emperor tulips and 3 are Queen of Night tulips, each different variety will counts as 1 plant, so that would be a total of 2 plants for purposes of the swap. Please try to send plants that relate to Halloween in some way. It could be that the name includes a Halloweeny word like witch or moon or magic or midnight; or ones that are a Halloweeny color like orange, black or purple.

3. In addition to the plants, include something scary! That could be a scary Halloween decoration, the horror paperback you just finished reading, a picture of my third grade teacher (she terrified me, and still does decades later) or anything else that conveys the spirit of the season. The trick is not to spend a lot of money on your treat, but express what you love about the season!

4. All boxes should be sent priority with delivery confirmation unless it is all fall bulbs, which will probably be fine going parcel post with delivery confirmation, which adds just 18 cents to parcel post rate.

5. Once you receive your box, please share the contents with the group. We want to share each others fun!

6. Sign ups start now and will close October 4th. We will assign partners on the 5th and we will make October 18 the absolutely last day to send your partner's box. We want to be sure that everyone has time to enjoy their scary Halloween surprise.

7. And most important, lets have FUN!!

Ah VIC, I see you were teasing the little goblins and ghoulies with the list. Be careful! You've angered Mother Nature and Dan the Mailman. He might go postal on you. After all the rumor is that he is the Serial Gardener....

A GIRL! But, they won't know for sure until the end.
"slapping proudgms hand away from her @$$" ROFL

Tracy, they seem to be getting a little devilish don't they?

Linda, yes, that looks like it! BUT, seems there is snail slime all over it and it has smeared the ink and I can't read it. Darn! I'll have to have Zack draw names again......

Those two are getting pretty devilish! I think they need a time out. Maybe you should just give partners early to some people and make the ornery ones wait?

GM, we get them from photobucket, you didn't see a lot? They have millions of pics! Use the search box and search for what you want "halloween" "happy" "proud grandma" etc

Linda, I was just wanting to see how many times everyone would check their email! ROFL
If you would like, we could do a secret swap, that might take a little longer for me to get partners out! LOL j/k

Are we too late to sign up for this one? We took the last week off to get our long list of things done... Guess we should have added 'check for October's mnf round robin sign-up' to our list!! Bulbs and/or seeds work for us if we're not too late! Got a 30x60' flower garden tilled and 1/4 of it planted so have plenty space for either!! Enjoy the day! (our last of 9 off - UGH!) Jay & Rhonda

Thanks Linda, they are still quite sore.

Proudgm, are you talking about saving the pics you find? I thought you might get lost looking at pics! lol
You can set yourself up a free photobucket acct and save pics to there. That is where a lot of us put pics of our gardens and other things we want to share. Also, when you find a pic you like you can click "save to my album" that lets you make it smaller if you want (what I should have done to that GIGANTIC pic I posted!)
Yes, the pic of you in your thong! I did see that one and thought the same thing you did, so I didn't post it LOL I believe you were at the beach.....

Jay and Rhonda, well, yes you are too late, BUT, since I didn't cave to all the treatening snails that were being thrown at me, I just have to do a quick redraw with your name in it : )

Also, I have had a couple emails asking if we are going to keep partners a secret, what would everyone like to do on that?

Thanks,
Vic

Vic, one thing I would like to add about setting up your own photobucket account is that you can create your own folders for it too. I have several different sub albums in my account for family pics, garden shots, then sub albums for each of my individual gardens, clematis, lilies, daylilies and then keep a separate album for all web art I find that I want to use again or edit/personalize. I like keeping them separated so if I do a search I can find what I'm looking for pretty quickly. It is a pretty neat site and they just recently expanded some of their editing tools so you can add comments and funny designs to the pictures too.

it doesn't matter to me whether we get the list posted here, or get sent individual e-mails, but it would be nice to get it today sometime. my box is sealed already, and although there are air-holes in it, the food and water won't last forever, and I'd hate for what it is I'm feeding/sending to arrive dead.
so, Vic, where's the list???
will you post it if I promise to behave and not make such a long posting again? hmmmm??? you can trust me to behave, I'll even keep my shorts on for awhile if you'll give us our partners. how's THAT for a bribe??? rofl

Yea Vic that's the one! That was during my skinny summer. I've put a little weight on since then. I figured it was just too sexy for this forum. I figure Dan is in good shape but that's definitely a heart stopper there!

I have my flowers saved on photobucket. I was just wondering if there was some way to store the graphics that you liked until you needed them.

Proudgm, you can save any pics to there, if it's in PB already then there is a link that says "copy to my album" and it will put it there. As far as other sites, I know there is a way to upload them to PB from your album, I think you would just put the web address in it, I've never done it before. Also as Tracy pointed out above:
