Our Bloomin Friends January Fruitcake Swap
Ok, ladies. This is my first time hosting a swap so go easy on me! I am so grateful for being allowed to join this group earlier this year and have enjoyed giving and receiving. I may not always be available to post on here, but know that Im thinking of each of you during this holiday season.
The rules for this monthÂs swap are as follows: As you know, a fruitcake is something given at Christmastime and is generally not too well-received (with a few yummy exceptions!). Since we have all probably exchanged a few gifts over the month there is a chance that something you unwrapped has no room in your home or garden. If so, that is your personal fruitcake this month. Re-wrap it and send it along to your swap partner with your trades. Alternatively, you can send a real fruitcake! Imagine thatÂ a real fruitcake in a fruitcake swap! The rest of the swap goes along the lines of past trades with plants/seeds/bulbsÂ whatever you want.
I hope the explanation is easy enough to follow. ItÂs basically a fun way to put to good use a gift or fruitcake you cannot keep or return.
The only deadline for sending is for your package to be shipped out in the month of January. Please post your delivery confirmation numbers here in the thread so your partner knows to expect a package. Sign-ups will be taken up until New YearÂs Day and the swap list will be posted by January 3rd.
Please post as to whether or not you will be participating to make it easier to identify whoÂs playing and who isnÂt.
