new-mnf november swap-i am thankful
MNF-November thankful swap begins.
Throughout the years, many of us have made wonderful friendships here on GW. Even though we have never met our friends in person, (although on occasion, some of us have actually met), we all share our gardens, thoughts, family antics, challenges, losses and so much more. I thought November would be a good month to show our thanks to the friends we have made. I am thankful for all the friends I have made over the years.
For this swap, I am asking that we send one or two items to our friend that they can use on Thanksgiving day as a reminder of this friendship. Something that can be used while preparing the big meal, dishtowel, potholder, food item etc. or placed on the table as you gather with your family and friends, napkins, figurine, utensil, anything, use your imagination. Something that when used or looked at, your friend will think of you that day.
In addition, I would like those of you who sign up to let me know if you would be willing to use a recipe from another Gardenweb friend during your Thanksgiving meal. I then ask you to email me a recipe to share with someone else. If you agree to sharing a recipe, I will be randomly assigning recipes to be used in the meal. After Thanksgiving, you can review the recipe here with us.
We will be posting recipes during the month but please don't post the one you will be emailing to me.
I also would like you to send seeds for plants that would be used in a meal such as vegies, herbs, etc. Maybe something that would actually be in the recipe you send.
So in review for this swap.
1. Send a friend something to be used during their Thanksgiving swap. (one or two items)
2. Would you like to use a recipe for your meal? If so, be sure to email me one you want to share.
3. Seeds for something that would be used in a Thanksgiving meal.
Sign ups will be until November 14th.
Partners assigned November 15th.
Packages mailed by November 20th. Please be prompt so the item intended will be used on Thanksgiving day, November 28th.
I will be posting a couple games so be sure to watch for those as well.
I am keeping this swap small since the holidays are coming and finances can become a burden. Send something nice that you would like to have on your table or use in your kitchen. You can send priority or regular mail just as long as the package arrives in time. Please use delivery confirmation no matter how you send the package.
I hope many of you can join in the sharing of our friendship. I thank all of you who have made the past year a time of enjoyment with our interactions here on Gardenweb.
