Everyone is invited to join this swap, I hope that everyone has fun and above all receives a special card made from the Heart and that it continues to grow thru out the year with lots of love.

I'm doing this now so you will have time to work on your cards and get your seed packet ready. We need them done so they're received before VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

1. Everyone that is particating must send me an email with your name, address, and GW name so I can get you all divided up and emailed with details
2. Make your own valentine card from whatever craft supplies you have at home.
3.. Include a packet of seed in card- can be flowers, vegetables, herbs, etc. (Check their member page to see what is on their want list you just might have it, but i am sure they will like what you have to send them.)
4. When you send yours to the person you got, post in the forum and email me so I can keep track.
5. When you receive your valentine's be sure to post in the forum and tell about your card and what you got. Be sure to email them and say Thank You!
6. Cards must be finished by Jan 31st. Cards need to be mailed before Feb.7th

Anyone Interested???

Let's get started then!!

Tammy, this sounds like fun. Reminds me of elementary school. My crafting skills never got much beyond that stage either so I'm not promising any great looking card but..... I'll give it a try.
Please sign me up.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

I made some cards last night. Might not be the craftiest things ever, but they look pretty cute. Hopefully they turn out okay when they dry. : )

@mcc371-I emailed you last night through GW, but let me know if it didn't go through and I can resend it outside of GW.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

I haven't crafted since my kids were younger. My oldest is 31 and the youngest 20 so that tells you how long. LOL I would love to join this and hope whoever receives my card will forgive my uncrafty ways.

Question: Are we limited to sending just one packet of seeds, or can it be whatever will fit in the card? Yeah, I know, it's not a fair question really, but I'm asking anyway. ;)


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

You can send more than one packet if you want to, but remember everyone is only required to send a card with a packet of seed. So you may get only one in return.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Tammy...received your email!! Thanks much! Looking forward to sending to ???????.....tiz a secret...LOL!

From what I have read here, most of us claim to be "Not Craft Orientated"......now Shirley is a crafty gal and darn good at it. Shirley, are you going to show us all up???? LOL!!!!!!!!!

Happy Evening!!

Annie


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

That's right!!! It's a secret and when they get their mail from you then they post here ion forum who their surprise came from an what they got!!!

I know, Ms. Shirley will probably out do us all!! Wonder who the lucky person is that she got??? Shhh! Can't tell!

The minds are working overtime in the imagination world- what will those cards look like??? Lol!!

Game Time!

How many seed jokes can you make.

Example: Cantloupe - can I lope with you?

I don't think so, Annie! I'm just hoping to make a decision on which card to make before I miss the deadline or the whole month! One idea leads to another, to another, and on and on! Which is a great way to spend an afternoon, but doesn't do much for finalizing anything.

I sometimes think people don't give themselves enough credit. Creativity comes in so many forms. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone does, mainly so I can get MORE ideas! People who run craft fairs hate me; I go mainly to get ideas and figure out how to do it cheaper!

I also love doing the cards, etc, and have the time to do it. Loving what you're doing is 3/4 of the battle! AND it sure beats dusting the bookshelves!

I'm planning on mailing my card sometime around the end of the month. I can hardly wait to see what everyone does!

Shirley!


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Got your email :) I had an idea bouncing around for a card but hadn't gotten much done with it since I'm worried it won't be crafty enough. Googled a little bit for ideas on how to perk it up a bit and found the perfect piece!!! It's probably gonna be pretty simple card but hopefully itll be as cute as I imagine it!

Have a great day, ALL!

 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

I got my Valentine ready to go in the mail! What a fun idea!


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Shirley - Yes when you get your card you can either post a picture or describe it the best ya can and tell "who" the person was that got you. Prefer pics, but everyone might not be able to.

As i sit here and ponder.... I am so excited i can hardly wait to see all the creativity that has been going on..will they be garden related, just hearts of love or both. What about a card full of blooms with butterflies, or a musical note card with hearts and poems... Wow, the ideas are endless!


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Nevermind - I see I just missed this.

Looks like fun!

Sheri really did a super job here and she managed to combine garden and hearts very nicely. Sure hope my photo show it well.
The heart if filled with pics of seed packets and the envelope was too..
Very nice, very generous and such fun. The seeds will be appreciated and used as I am starting from scratch this year with w new yard/garden and even in a new state. What a fun idea. Many thanks

You're very welcome, Beth. I hope you really enjoy your cottage garden this year. Thank you for posting a pic, too!

I will share some with you!

Happy Valentines Day!

 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Alana- that sounds like a planned weekend of fun. I take it Allie is your granddaughter? Ohh the memories y'all will make and something she will remember from now on.

Panhandle _Seed_Swap - did you make that verse up or did you find it somewhere? That is really a cute saying and is so me when it comes to seeds.....


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

You're too kind, Tammy! I made it up. Only a true seed hoarder could come up with that silly verse. :)


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Sheri, I enjoyed the verse but then, I'm a major seed hoarder too. LOL, I had two shoe boxes full until my daughter decided to move back to our old farm and I gave them to her. ( helped her plant most of them too)
Then last June we bought land and now I have a need for seeds again. OH well, they are better to be used than just kept in boxes.
Thanks again to Sheri and Tammy

Drat, another idea! Ya know, you (or whoever) could use this idea for Christmas cards too.

I'm a little behind in posting this, but I received my Valentine from JayeAnne (pinkiris) this week. It was such a nice card with a sweet verse inside as well. She sent such a nice selection of flower seeds also, all of which I haven't tried yet and am excited to get growing. : ) I've really enjoyed being part of this swap and I hope the recipient of my Valentine will be as pleased as I am with the one I got from JayeAnne.

Good Morning!
My "secret" Valentine arrived yesterday, and Lisa, I have to first tell you that it was an excellent antidote to a thoroughly stupid week at work! Your timing was great!

Secondly, don't worry about the Cupid's Dart, I probably wouldn't have room for it anyway!

And third, what a pretty card! And thank you for all the seeds, most of which will be good for the butterflies and bees! Check this out, Everybody! Inside the card is an old fashioned lace doily type heart with "Happy Valentine's Day" on it. Haven't seen one of those in years!

Lisa sent Red Scabiosa, Red Snaps, Pink Salvia, Apple Blossom Yarrow and Nigella. I think I'm going to do a container planting with these, for this year, anyway.

Thanks, Lisa, you made my weekend!

I'll be mailing my card out this week, sometime, probably as soon as the temps go above freezing!
Have a great weekend, Everyone!
Shirley!


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

My valentine arrived today!! and on a perfect day, when i was getting sleepy from spending all day inside reading my gardening book and watching the snow. Thank you Darrin (cryptid) for such a nice card and poem lol also I would love a butterfly pin if possible! I'm sure my grandmother or mother would love it! As for the contents of my card, you really made my day, all things I had on my want list! I am so excited to winter sow the medium pink columbine and to grow the love in a mist and garden peach tomatoes in a few months! :))))) <3 thank you so much!
~michael

P.S. not gonna lie, I'm glad you got me cuz I was looking at your seed list several times before when I've seen you post on other posts and wanting those seeds. Thank you so much for making my day :)


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Michael,...glad you liked everything and that it brightened an otherwise snowy stuck-indoors kind of day for you! - There will be two butterfly pins winging their way to you for your mother and gran. I'll mail `em Monday. :)


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Shirley, I'm glad that tacky little card made you smile on an otherwise nasty day!

The salvia seeds are Pink Jewel. The nigella seeds are Jekyll blue and the snaps are chime red if my memory serves me. The scabiosa was sold by t&m as red scabiosa. My husband was rushing me to go out, I don't know if I wrote that on the packets.

There are some really cute cards and great seeds being shared.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

I'm stuck inside again tomorrow due to this weather. The owner of the shop I work at said not to bother opening it up. I have been spending the last two days organizing seeds and deciding what to plant this spring. Maybe I can finish up tomorrow.

I have been hanging on to my Valentine so I can send it closer to the day. Will try to get it to the post office on Tuesday. I can't do anything even close to those beautiful cards that have been posted so hopefully, my receiver does not put up a picture. LOL

More snow headed tonight. One to three inches but it is the blowing that is causing the problems. We have to park at the end of our driveway because the drifting has been so bad. My husband just can't keep up. He plows through and the drift is back the next day. We are talking a huge drift. It has been a rough year for snow here.


 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Don't park the car to close to the street the snow plows will take it with them... The way they drive an pile that stuff. Will be thinking about you, one good thing the ground should have plenty of moisture an be replenished come spring.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Michael, I did get your emails and sent the appropriate response. LOL

Poor Michael, I am doing a "have" post under seed swap and have 20 requests coming in for seeds for postage. Michaels was one of 6 I received yesterday and I dumbly thought it was one of the envelopes for a request. Just thought the sender was being nice and sending a card and seeds. I just had a brain fart and totally forgot about the Valentine Swap.

I am so sorry I had such a moment. Michael sent a cute foam card in the shape of a flower pot with hearts coming out instead of flowers. It says live, love, garden. So cute. also included blanketflower and hollyhock seeds. Thank you, thank you, and again, I apologize for my oversight.

 o
RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

I got my card just now! I have misplaced my camera but I will do my best to describe it.
It is made of cleverly cut paper with a woman with flowers for hair on a green background. Skyblue52 made a pocket on the front and on the inside, where she drew a vine adorned with heart flowers. On the outside is written "Sending you daydreams and angels to grow" and on the inside "So take your passion to the sky sending flowers 30 ft high."
Inside the pocket were wonderful seeds:
Cobaea scandens
Datura meteloides, Evening Fragrance
Cosmos, Daydream
Alyssum, Avalanche
Ornamental Kale, Crane Bicolor
Passiflora caerulea

Susan, I enjoyed your unusual card and the great seeds!
It really made my day.

There is no rush to send your cards for those wanting to wait until closer to valentines. It is still two weeks away. I am just posting who has received so I can keep up with it. I must say from the cards I have seen we have some talented and creative gardeners.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Yay! I'm glad the card got to you safe and sound Lisa. : ) There should be 3 packets of seed in there, so double check the bubble envelope because it may be down at the bottom yet.

Enjoy,

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Smitties (Margo) -- I received your valentine card in yesterday's mail. Sounds like it took an extra long route to get to me :) The hand-crafted card was lovely, the shared hearts were priceless and the seeds included are very much appreciated : Ground Cherry, Purple Tomatillo, and Zinnia Will Rogers. Thank you -- Happy Valentine's!

And now the front of the card.......And I failed to mention, all those packets are real seeds!!!! Cracking up on the last two...Easy on the "Champagne" celebration. You could end up a "Pregnant Onion"!!!!!

Thanks so much Alana and Allie.

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Thank goodness, Annie! I was a little worried you might find my seedy "Valentine Story" from first love to pregnant onion a little too much, lol.

Annie! brocade and lace, really a great idea!

Alana, loved the story idea! Good job, Allie!

Pretty cards, Margo and Beth, lots of good ideas on both, simple things I usually forget to use. DUH!!

Emily, great idea for the card and yes, it's on my "gotta try that" list for Christmas cards. What a time saver!

And Darrin, very pretty card!

I sent my card out last Monday, sure hope it arrives soon!

It was a really pretty, sunny day today, still very cold, but the sun seems to make all the difference. Huge piles of snow everywhere, makes ya wonder where it's all going to go when it melts!

Have a great day tomorrow,
Shirley!

And, here's the card, love it. Daisies and sunflowers are high up on my favorites list.
The pocket on the left is stuffed with six packets of seeds. Really excited about the Delphiniums. Have not seen those since I left Alaska and I'm anxious to see how they will do in the Mid West.
Many many thanks and congrats on the nice card

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY Everyone !!!!

Hope everyone has received their cards and goodies! I have so enjoyed seeing all the love and kindness during these last few weeks. Hope today is a sweet day and if you have received your cards I hope you shared it with us all. If you haven't posted yet please do.. so that the one who sent it will feel appreciated I know in our busy lives we tend to let things slide or put them off for another day.
This swap is coming to an end as today has arrived. I hope everyone received something that touched their heart and will enjoy growing.

Have a Sweet Valentine's Day!

RE: NEW: Valentine Swap 2014

Okay,...here's the thing: (1) I received Jessica's (foreverrecyclereuse) totally fab card and seeds precisely on the 14th. (2) The following day, diabetic neuropathy issues kinda slapped me down, although, in the evening, I worked on trying to capture the best photos I could of her card and seeds, using a camera with a non-functioning flash. The results were absolutely dismal. Then, (3) yesterday, when the sun came out for a bit, Elly & I went outside to hopefully achieve better photographic results,...which we did. So now,...

Thank you, Jessica, for your wonderfully creative card (loved the googly-eyed flowers especially,...LOL! - That, and your poetic sentiments inside)! Sorry it's taken me 3 whole days to get this posted, but at least I have some semi-decent photos to post, finally. We're definitely getting a new camera with our tax return, relegating our current 6.0-pixel relic to auxiliary standby status in our car's glove box.
