NEW: Christmas Stocking Swap 2010

dirt_under_my_nailsOctober 30, 2010

Hope you join Christmas Stocking Swap 2010!! We had a blast last year!!

~~~~~~Info~~~~~~

Each player sends me

~ A stocking - at least 12" long I want to be able to

stuff them, you can make them or buy them

(make it one you would be happy to recieve!)

~ seeds to swap ~ you will get back the same amount

(or more) that you send, no more than

2 packs of each on mixed seeds(unknown

variety, ie zinnias mix) and 3 on

named cultivars(zinnias:canary yellow)

It's helpful if you GW name & year is on the seed packet

~small gifts ~to be sorted among the players stockings,

try to stay away from the very fragile it takes up alot of room in someones stocking to use bubble wrap.Hand made/store bought ornaments, pens, note pads, candles,small calenders,seed baggies,plant markers,trial size beauty products,candy,stuff YOU would like to get!!

~Just TRY to keep everything a size that will fit in a stocking.

Please DO NOT send any plants!! Bulbs for indoor winter blooming would be GREAT ie.. paper whites or amaryllis.

~Please,PLEASE, please put your full name, address and GW name in your box!!

~Stocking will be sent back in the priorty box that measures 13-5/8" x 11-7/8" x 3-3/8". Please include 10.70 or prepaid label to have stocking mailed back to you.

Sign ups start NOW through Nov 7th.Boxes should @ my house NO later than Dec 3rd. I should have them sorted & mailed out to ya'll the week of Dec 6th!!

later...April/dirt_under_my-nails

What a dreary day today!! Cold & drippy. Makes me want a roaring fire,cocoa,& a good book.

Just a few more days to sign up. Might have to cancel it. First time in 4 years that a stocking swap won't happen. Only my 2nd year hosting it. micyrey/michelle was the orginal mastermind behind this swap. I think maybe the price of the return postage might be a hang up for alot.It is a bit pricey,but the small box won't work. Plus since the boxes are flat rate we can REALLY load them up!!!

Hoping for more elves.....

would we get our own stockings back? my family never does a very good job with my stocking so i am tempted to send mine in and get it filled myself! LOL i would love to join in :)

i think with the flat rate boxes, they can come in under the 10.70 if they don't reach a certain weight. i've had the small boxes weigh in lower so they charged me less. would be a pita to keep track of change though.

please send me an email with details!

thanks for hosting such a cool swap :)

Rose, the rates on the flat rate boxes don't change. You can ship up to 70 pounds of stuff for one flat price. And, like the commercial says, if it fits, it ships. Packing a lighter flat rate box won't make the price any cheaper. If the cost of shipping is a concern for you, use a different type of priority box, or tell the window clerk you want your package shipped priority when you take it to the post office.
And, everyone please remember... If you are sending anything over 12 ounces and it has stamps for postage (meaning it's not metered or online postage) you MUST take it to your local post office for mailing. We carriers are NOT allowed to pick up anything over 12 ounces that uses stamps because of heightened security measures. So, leaving your box on top of, or next to, your mailbox wouldn't get it picked up. In fact, your mailperson may just avoid your mailbox completely until the package is removed. You wouldn't believe how scary those unknown packages can be.

Welcome to the swap carrlinesue!!

Rose~ sent ya an email.

Dan~ Thanks for the shipping info!! I found out the hard way about the stamps. I put some on a (heavy)small flat rate box & the mail carrier took it,but brought it back the next day with a note.I just print out my own label now!!

Thanks April! I can't wait to go shopping for those stocking stuffers. There are lots of bargains out there now in my neck of the woods (NE Ohio). The "Black Friday" sales are underway early this year too.

There are probably a few folks sitting on the fence about this one. In these challenging economic times it can be difficult to garner participation, but I am keeping the faith.

I am participating because I find that it is so rewarding to share in the spirit of Christmas. I joined in on a couple of swaps this past summer and they were great! It was like Christmas in July! We are fortunate to have so many generous gardening friends. I hope that we get some more sign ups before the deadline. This is going to be so much fun!!!

Gotta run, it will be daylight out there before you know it. Let the shopping begin!

I am almost done shopping for stocking stuffers and I am now working on finding a stocking. I wish I had the time and talent to make a stocking. Maybe someday I will take up sewing. I always wanted to but never found the time. I do crochet a little during the winter. I am making an afghan for my grandson that is due any day now. Talk to you guys later.

I am mailing my stocking in the morning...in a few hours. It's the holidays, no time to sleep, can't believe it's 2:30 a.m. Wow, way past my bedtime!

Speaking of live trees, many moons ago when my children were small, my husband and I decided to purchase a live Christmas tree. Well, being inexperienced in letting the tree sit overnight etc. I decided to string the lights and place the ornaments just right the same day we brought it home. Well, the next morning, much to my surprise, it had toppled over during the night. I have learned much since that time, but I still get a chuckle every time I think about this huge 8 ft tall, 4 ft wide tree toppled over taking up half the living room! The kids thought the grinch had visited our house and tried to take our tree...lol!!!

Ah those fond Christmas memories when my children were young and innocent, those were the days!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season!

Later,

Sue

I was so tired back then with the kids being young and working so many hours that I was sound asleep upstairs and didn't hear a thing! I sent my package yesterday, so you should receive it tomorrow.

Hope everyone is staying warm. It has been unseasonably cold and snowy here in NE Ohio. Would anyone like a few inches of lake effect snow...lol?

April - I'm sure the folks that haven't mailed their stockings yet will get them out to you soon. I know the Christmas rush at the post office can be dreadful.

Hi everyone

By now I think everyone has received their stockings, so I wanted to post a few comments here. I really enjoyed this swap. April, you did a phenominal job of hosting. Thanks for all of your hard work, especially during this busy Christmas season. I received a lovely handmade stocking stuffed with a wonderful assortment of goodies that included so many neat gardening accessories, (I especially loved the plant markers) hand sanitizers,candy, a huge variety of seeds, warm socks, wonderful cards with lovely sentiments from the other participants, and various other very useful items that I will enjoy over the coming months. You were all so thoughtful and generous. Thank you to everyone and Merry Christmas to all of you!!!

i wanted to say thanks again to April for hosting this swap-- both filling and receiving stockings was so much fun! i'm sitting here sipping on my cocoa sorting through seeds, trying to figure out where to put what and what i can wintersow :) i can't wait til spring, and i have all of you to thank for that!

kamil, did you get the sweet autumn clematis seeds you were looking for? i have some, but they were too wet to send when i packed up my box. let me know if you still need some and i'll send them off when they are totally dry :)

hey guys! i had no much fun with this swap that i now want to organize one LOL. i was wondering what you guys thought of doing an easter basket swap? i did a search and it doesn't look like anyone has hosted one before, so i wouldn't be intruding on anyone's space, and i all of a sudden want to fill "something" with gardening "stuff" :) what do you guys think? too early to post about it and i wanted some feedback. can't ask the family-- they already think i am nuts!
