NEW: Be Ye Thankful
Pretend the OBF Logo is inserted here:)
Let me begin by saying that Our Bloomin Friends requires you to be member before you can join in on one of the swaps. If you are interested in membership, please contact Shirley or Carol.
This is the first time I have ever been host for a swap and I hope I do not mess it up to much :)
the holidays already on us I thought something sweet and simple for November would be great.
Remembering the real reason for Thanksgiving should be giving thanks for everyone and everything you have in life.
November is to show what "BE YE THANKFUL" from ones garden to another.
To our swap partner we will be mailing in a small Flat Rate Box (Cost is $5.35) Four things will be required, but you can send more if you like. Just don't feel like you have to spend a lot of money. This swap is going to be sweet and simple and shows what we are giving thanks for.
1. Include a card. You can make the card yourself or embellish a store bought card by adding stickers, ribbons, beads or anything you want. Remember it needs to show how thankful you are for being able to garden and have friends that garden. LetÃ¯Â¿Â½s get creative!
2. Include at least one gift item that is garden related, your choice. Look at your swap partners want list for some ideas on what they might like. And remember it needs to fit into a small flat rate box. Maybe a sprout off your favorite houseplant.
3. Chocolate candy. Everybody loves chocolate and I hope everyone is thankful for giving and receiving Chocolate. And being thankful for living in a country where we all can get chocolate.
4. Three packs of seeds from your garden that you are blessed with, thankful for and would like to share.
You must use Delivery Confirmation.
Please post here when you mail and when you receive your box. We all want to enjoy the surprises.
After sign-ups I will post at least one game with a prize.
Sign-ups are until November 10th
Partners will post on November 11th
Please mail by November 26th
I hope you'll join in! I'm looking forward to it.
Be ye thankful ALWAYS!
