RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

This is My 1st time Hosting a swap Here in PP SO I do Not Know if you are Members or not But I'm sure even if your Not Then You can Be :)

CONNIESC: To answer your ??? Please note that This would enclude any ITEM's You can match to your Partners Letters weather it is seeds but should have one Usable Item to do with gardening If Possible :)
Just try to look over your partners GW page to be sure not to send seeds that they might have already .

I was also going to put in for a few cutting but Like me here in the north I'm not any to sure they would survieve the trip in the cold . So I guess you all would have to use your judgement on them.

again welcome & I will check back later this evening .
so if anyone that has been with PP for long time maybe you can tell the Newbies how or what to do to join us .

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

thanks for all the info.

This sounds like a lot of fun!! I am looking forward to this swap.

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Susie, they usually just post they would like to be in the group. Then they are accepted by the group. THEY have to send their trade first for the first 2 times they are in the group because they are new.
They also need to understand this is a year round group and they need to participate in more then just this month.
They need to send their address and other contact info to someone, I think Annie has that master list not sure.
Rules I remember:
1. Have fun
2. Send by the posted deadline for each swap
3. No bickering, this is meant to be fun for everyone
4. Send things you yourself would want
5. Always include a Delivery Conformation number and post it on the current thread when you send the package
Not sure what else goes here, if anything. This is a pretty laid back group and is meant to be fun. Not a lot of rules other then basic stuff. IF I missed something maybe one of the other seasoned members can list eveything need to join and for this group.
(K, girls how did I do explaining the 'rules' for the group?)

:) Fran


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Thanks Fran for all the information. This sounds like a great group to get involved in and I would love to have something special going on each month. Just let me know where/who I need to send all my address info to. I can understand the rules and that I need to 'prove' myself first :) In my short time swapping I have already encountered the issue with people not fulfilling their end of the swap.


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

SO Conniesc : Guess your in :) We will find out for sure who you will send your info to Before we get started so you have time :) to look over the groups Pages . Connie you will have to send your addy to your partner when you find out who will be sending to you.
Guess I forgot to mention that .

THANK YOU FRAN : For letting us know this . as a newbie to the group I still have lots to learn :).

well i still have my hot flashes & chills from my cold so I need to go crawl under my Blankets .

P.S
Would it be to late to enclude A 2009 Calendar ???? to remind us of our partner :) THIS IS not A have too. But some can also be very colorfull :) .

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Well, I had a nice long post typed out last night and hit submit, then closed my window, hmmmm....I think I was still in the "preview" part! LOL

Susie, thanks for hosting a swap this month! It does sound like a great one. I am so far behind right now on seed sorting and wsing that I am going to ponder for a few days and see what I can get done. Ok? : )

Fran, good job on the rule posting (as if we have many!)

And yes, I believe it would be Annie (raggedyann161420) I know Sassy and Tracy were trying to get a member list together too, but last I thought, Annie had almost everyones addresses.

Welcome to the newcomers! Connie, Mary and Chris! We love to "see" new faces here! Tell us a bit about yourselves.
I just moved from Michigan to Montana (Billings) where I was told the summers are hot and dry, and the winters are mild and little snow. Well, the 1st month I was here we had the most consecutive days of rain ever! Then in Oct. we got 22 inches of snow, another record, and in Dec. we not only broke snowfall records for the last 20 - 30 years, but we also had record cold temps. Yippee!! LOL
I have a son who is 3 yrs old (going on 13) and has recently turned into a little monster! But he loves to garden with me : ) We are going to make him a giant sunflower garden this year which really will be outstanding thanks to all the great GWers that sent me lots of sunflower seeds!!

So girls, lets here about you : )

I just seen Beth pop in on the CB thread, so maybe she will be over here to play!

Vic


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Good Morning/Afternoon!

I'm back home, will be off until next Friday except for running a couple of appointments early Tues morning.

Susie, since seeds are not required I will let you know for sure by Tues/Wed.

Bunny, Congrats on the new arrival;I'm so happy for you.

Connie,Mary, Chris, WELCOME TO THE GROUP! Oh yes, I will e-mail you for names and address to add you to the list. I will then send out a group e-mail to update everyone.

I'm not for sure If I have everyone's address that belongs to this group, so if you don't get an updated e-mail from me please do not feel left out. Just give me a nudge and I will be happy to add you. I would never want to hurt anyone's feelings.

Anita, Sassy, and Tracy, I hope to see you gals around while I'm off this week.

Shirley, I'm sorry I missed your birthday, I hope it was a good one!

Margaret, guess what? I have to send you your Dec/Jan Taste of Home. They sent both to me so I'll will contact them again to see if they can get it right by the next issue. I'm playing hermit this week-end so when I run doctor's appointments I will send it out.

Vic, now you are calling your Zack a "monster". I'm not laughing at you. (well, yes I am) It will get better, really it will. When he gets 20+ you will think back on it, and wish you had this to do all over again.

Fran, waving a hi to you too. I don't want to leave anyone
out.

Theresa how was your trip?

I need to unload the car.
LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Susie, yes, I'm glad to be home I will e-mail the new members for their address and then I will update my list and send out a group e-mail. I was lazy this afternoon and took a nice long nap; I just hope I can sleep tonight. I will check and see if you are in later.

I forgot to pick up bird seed before coming home and although there is some suet and nigher left in the feeders I'm out of black oil and safflower seed. I feel bad when I do that cause the poor little things do need to eat.

I will check back later,
LIFE IS GOOD,

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Thanks for the congrats, everyone. :O) We're happy to finally have her here, it seems like it took forever!

I think I would like to join in this swap. I haven't participated in a PP swap in quite awhile, and this one sounds like fun. It'll be a nice break, and give me something to look forward to, I think. :O)

Melissa


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Look Susie, you are getting a lot of us! And you didn't think you would have much interest...HA! We fooled you and it isn't even April yet...lol.

HEY BUNNY, glad you are gonna do this one.

I am kind of worried, I haven't done one like this but I read the one that was posted maybe for another group and I thought WOW how fun. Hope I can do as good a job as they did on that one which ever group that was.

:) Fran

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Hi All-Susie some of those names are really long.....Can we cut them in half???LOL

Bunny-So happy you are participating.

Nice job with the rules Fran. I've been with PP since it first began and I don't remember the rules.

Welcome to all of the new members. You'll really enjoy yourself here.

Annie I bet it's great to have some time to yourself.

We spent New Years up at my sister's farm. My brother lives near her so it was a family reunion. Did we stay up til midnight? No way.... My sister and her DH had to milk cows at 4:30 am! All I can say is that it was miserably cold and windy up there. It gets cold here in NJ but not like northern PA. Unfortunately the few days seemed very short. We had such a great time. I may go up and stay at my sister's for a week during the summer. This is something I ues to do. That means I have to leave DH in charge of all my plants. Scary!!

Sassy-I miss you.

Have a great day everyone.

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

I am fine with sending things for both the GW name & someone's first name. Like for Galium, Skohler & Vic? All those names are really short, compared to mine. :O) So I would be more than happy to use the first name as well, or maybe even a first & last name?
Susie~ Would that be OK? Or should we just use the GW name, and fill in the rest of the box will "colorful" garden things?

Oh, but WAIT! You said you had a plan to level the field, didn't you??
Never mind, ignore me....not enough caffeine in the mornings. LOL

I think this will be fun, I really hope so. Susie is always a great hostess, no matter what the theme is! :O)

I hope everyone has a great Sunday!

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Hello everyone!

I got a welcome email from Skoler today,Thank you Susie.

She asked that I share some info about myself with the group.I'll answer the questions that she asked and in time you'll all find out the rest!lol

My name is Lisa and I was born on the 31st of January, 1964. I'm married and have been for 24 years. I have two children, hellfire and damnation....just kidding!
Angela is 20, soon to be 21 and a third year college student who lives on her own. Derrick is a senoir in high school,he just turned 18 and is suffering from a severe case of what I call eighteenitis!

I have no pets, I lost my 15 y/o black lab last year the week before xmas. I can't imagine going through that again.

I only read if it has to do with gardening and/or flowers.

I have flower beds in every position possible. I have full sun,part sun,dappled shade and dead shade. I have wet areas and dry areas. I don't have a water feature,yet! I'm working on the hubby for that.

and that's all I've got for now!

Have a great night

Good Morning!

I'm Annie, a transplant from Iowa and someday I will return home. Like Susie, I'm over the middle age line.:O):0 and yes, I was one of the ones that persuaded her into joining the group.

I'm a dog person, but I have cats, and I'm sure you will hear about them from time to time.

I work night shift with the developmental disabled, and like any job it does have its ups and downs.

DH and I will be celebrating our 40th this year, and we have a DS, Shelby Lee, who is married and they live in Green Bay. Shelby is a leukemia survivor, and has been in remission for 6 years 4 months.(I'm one happy mom, and thank god every day for his good health;what more could I ever ask for?)

I think my favorite color is blue, but I also like browns, tans, orange or anything that is earth tone. I love bearded iris, hosta and daylily. I'm not picky and welcome multiplies of what I already have, just nothing invasive.

I have everyone's addresses so this morning all of you will be getting them in a group e-mail, and if you don't receive it please let me know.

Susie, how is your dad? When I chatted with you yesterday you said he was feeling under the weather?

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Hi ladies,

I'm finally back and somewhat settled thought it's back to work tomorrow and all the Christmas deco is still up.

Susie, my parents' internet was down so I couldn't look up the email where you sent me your phone number. I wouldn't have been able to drive anywhere though. Mom's van has been giving her trouble. We arrived just as all the snow was melting but the boys got in a snowball fight and then it snowed a few days later for them to go sledding a few times. So all was well.....I appreciate being back in my warm climate though...It is in the 70's today :)
I had enough winter there to last me a few years.

I can't resist joining this month's swap...I hope I don't get overcomitted like I usually do. It just sounds like so much fun. My favorite colors are pink, light or sage green, and sky blue.

Congrats Melissa! I'm glad she finally arrived and is as beautiful as can be (I saw the pic on the OBF thread). Winter babies help pass the dreary months ahead :)

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Thank you everyone, I never win anything!

Skohler, yes I have been in several round robins. I joined a year long one last year called gardener of the month. I had a lot of fun with it.

I also took part in a couple of the mnf ones and enjoyed them too!

I was actually told about this group by Tracyvine(we did a lot of exchanging this summer) this past summer but was still into the gardener of the month group so I didn't look into joining until that was over.

I'm glad to be here!

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Hi, Ladies-Love this & want to list my favorite colors. Mostly the cool colors-blue, lavender, pink, whites & creamy whites. Like Lisa my least favorite is orange & I really don't care for fall colors at all. I have a hard time decorating for the fall holidays because of that. I am so enjoying this RR & can't wait to see who I send to. Blessings, Margaret


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Ok, back to my post from last night, lol

Margaret, glad you are joining again this month!

Theresa, I'm glad you had a good trip! I bet you were happy to get back to warm weather tho : )
We had a heat wave today! got up to 40! If it hadn't been so windy, it would have been a great day!

Susie, well I thought I had it! But I'm 2 letters short on my guess! lol Hmmm, I take it you like roosters! hehe

I was going to try and call Tracy tonight and see how she is doing, but I forgot about the time difference and it's 10pm her time now. Tracy! We miss you!

Sassy, if your peeking in, we miss you too! : )

I'm so glad the holidays are over and things are starting to settle down a bit at home, now I just need to get my seeds organized and get a list of what I have. I just started really collecting seeds this year and they sure did add up fast! : )
I'm not sure how to "organize" them, so I'm just putting them in baggies by letter A, B, C, etc. That's better than what I got now! How do you guys do it?

I went and found some potting mix at home depot Sunday, of course it was outside and frozen solid! It's been in the mud room all week thawing out so I can do some wsing this weekend!

Has anyone wsed tomatoes? I know I always had them come up from seed the following year after planting so I thought I would give it a try : )

I'm gonna go try and figure out the game now : )

Vic

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

All I got for a guess is: KALANCHOE don't know about a WHO all I have is a WHAT...lol.

HEY VIC :)

:) Fran


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Here is my guess.. but I am sure I am missing something :(

WHO & What am I
onekchaolha

I am an aligator plant called Kalanchoe


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Yup! I got the same thing the minute that she posted but that leaves us short 1 h. hmmmm.

Lisa


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

I'm in, as long as my partner will not be upset that I will not be sending seeds. I'm on the road every other week and didn't have time to collect any. Although I could order something on their wish list and have it sent to them. :O) :O)

Vic, I have done tomatoes, and they did fine. If you have not wintersown before, with all the seedlings be sure to set them in the shade and uncover them when it is expected to get sunny and warm. I remember coming home the first year to about 150 seedlings that had burnt up.

Margaret, I didn't get your magazine out to you but will sometime this week;yesterday was crazy.

Lisa, Congrats on winning! I have no clue what the 2nd game is.

Everyone else have a great day!

Anita, Sassyd and Tracy, MISS YOU GUYS! Come in and see us before I have to go back to work Friday night. :O) :O)

I have to go to the meat market this morning, so I will check back in later.

LIFE IS GOOD,
Annie

Hi Ladies!

I'm sorry that I spoiled the game for everyone, I didn't know that I shouldn't be guessing a game after I won one.

I'll post my colors again, I think you missed them back on the 5th. I like pretty much every color with the exception of orange.

It has been sleeting here all day and it's starting to get below freezing. This is going to make for a nice ride to work at 5ish tomorrow morning. I sooo hate winter!!!

I'm off to cook dinner....

TY Lisa For posting the new games for me :) I have been suffering from this head cold Got a shot & meds & They seem to knock me out .

I should have posted right from the start so no one would get up set with me but with the cold I just didn't think of it . & I Hope You all will understand I just want to give everyone a fair chance .

#1 You can guess the Games weather your in the swap or not Not a problem with me .

#2. Once you win that would be it so we can give others a fair chance to drop by & take a guess.

I only have 6 bags made up & You Gals are all so Quick & Smart & the swap hasn't even started yet so after this #4 is closed I will hold off till after i open the swap :) Before posting any more Games.

we can play games without gifts i guess But Then I feel

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Susie,

a 5 o'clock deadline sounds good to me. I have the weekend of and it will give me a chance to shop around for some special things for my partner. I'm anxious to find out who it will be.

I offered to send to sassy because she got it so fast and I posted a second game. I didn't mean to step on any toes.

Fran,
That was a hard one, I'm surprised that you guessed so quickly. Great job!

Have a good night
Lisa


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Susie, I don't know how you come up with such good games, and I don't know HOW these girls keep guessing so fast! I am clueless on that last one (and the 2 before it lol)

Ok, I can't take it anymore! I'M IN!!! But I think I will change my name to "vic_zn5_in_montana" LOL
And, it does not matter to me if I get seeds or not, I have really accumulated a LOT.

Annie, where are u??? Thanks for the info on the Tomatoes, I have several different kinds that I want to grow this year, I'm going to make some more salsa we are all out : (

I had a really bad day yesterday, I lost one of the puppies. They were doing fine and when I got home from work Tuesday the little boy seemed to have lost weight (or the others got bigger and he didn't) He was still moving around well and eating but then yesterday morning he seemed rather sluggish. I called the vet and she said to get some formula for him that he probably wasn't getting enough from feeding. By the time I got home he was gone. I feel so bad, I should have just taken the day off and took him into the vet. He went down so fast.

Susie, I hope you start feeling better, I'm starting to get the sinus crud again too, and I know how tired it can make me (and cranky)

Mariann, any news yet on your MRI? Hugs while you are waiting!

Well girls, it's getting late and I'm tired, I'll try and post a pic of Zack with one of the pups tomorrow.

Night,
Vic

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Hey, I'm still here, just been too busy packing seeds! Sorry .I'll send this off and think of my favorite colors, can't hardly type, my daughter's feet are tapping to the music of the 'old wild wild west, jammed (her legs) between my laptop which sits over a big cushion onmy lap,so i can see better, and my chest. I love taking care of her, she will be 20 years old tomorrow and a person with multiple disability, she brings us so much joy with just her presence, and I feel priviledged to have served her these many years. When she reacts to her environment like she is tonight, by her just flicking her knees up and down to the music , or trying to kick me on the side or ear or whatever she can reach to get a reaction from,we love it. ...

anyway favorite colors;

Chartreuse (limish green)

Red all shades of red from deepest to hot pink

Yellow all shades to Salmon to meet where we left off in reds.

Blues that go well with above colors going into purple to meet up with the hot pinks

Whites lastly of all shades to meet up with the Chartreuse.

I'll have to tell you about me tomorrow maybe. don't drop me, gosh. Chris


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Gosh Susie! Now you got me looking at everyones names thinking what I can send for the letters LOL
Hmmmmm.........who to pick : )

Annie, sorry your time off was cut up! Yes, the love/hate relationship with work! I had to call my boss today after he was done in surgery to ask him where the hell he was, I needed him to come do some things at the office, sometimes he ignores my voicemails, but that one got his attention! hehe

Ok, thinking, thinking, thinking!

I think I'll take a newbie because I remember how much fun it was getting started on GW and my first RR swaps! So.... I'm going to take Carolina Angle - Connie : )

Vic


 o
Chris

Hey Chris, I didn't see your post when I posted (of course it takes me about an hour to post some days with the little guy : )
I'm glad you are having fun with your DD, do you have any other children?

Connie, what about you? Kids, pets? Inquiring minds.....


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

Geeze who do I choose? How about, GOSH I dunno! It is a toss up between Vic, Bunny, Galium, and maybe Maragret that I THINK I could come up with something to send BUT I will have to choose:
Bunny, hazelnutbunny because I already have a few ideas floating around in my head for her...

Susie you did a great job on the extra names I LOVE:
FLORIDIAN MADAM /Theresa24 poor Theresa, reminds me of those, well let's not GO THERE....lol.
She is the Ma'dam of PLANTS right? lol.

You did do a fine job with those!

:) Fran


 o
RE: NEW: petal pusher ' 1 st 2009 swap'

I am so glad I logged in the check.. I am so sorry, I had a stupid cut and paste error. I actually picked..... IowaMARGARET... not Raggedyann. I am so sorry.. I hope that doesn't mess anything up. I just need one more thing and I will be ready to ship.

Vic, as for me. No kids but I am very close to my 2 nephews and 2 nieces. ages 7,6,5,3. I do have a shiba inu. I am very new to gardening and love container and trailing plants.
