2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Hey everyone!

October is already here and before we know it Christmas will be too. I figured we better start getting our ducks in a row for next year.
This is to set up a tentative schedule for the Make New Friends Trade Group. Everyone and anyone is welcome to take a spot at hosting. Just please try to commit to your month you choose.

You don't have to have a theme for your month before you pick one. You can come up with something later. And if you want to sign up for more than one that's okay too.

January:

February: flowergirl34

March:

April:

May:

June:

July:

August: flowergirl34

September:

October:

November:

December:

If you've never hosted before and thought it would be fun to try...then we are for you!! There is always someone here to help. And we're just a nice bunch of folks :)

Also, thank you to everyone who will take a month!!!! :D You guys are SUPER!

THANKS!

RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

I wouldn't mind taking another month. I will add May to my hosting duty. If someone decides later that they would like to host, I can give one up. At this time, I want to make sure we get the year covered.

Margo


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Could someone please explain what exactly this is? I am very new to this site :)

Thanks!


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Morning!!

Thanks Margo!! May is yours :)

Sure, Midnight, I can try to explain. The Make New Friends (MNF) is a year long swap group. You don't need to sign up for every month to swap or even be a member. We don't have memberships. Everyone is welcome to join. Newbies or veterans. Anyone who wants to make a new friend :)

If you host a month, it is your job to decide the theme for that month and to set your rules for the month. Everyone is welcome to make their own swap rules to fit their swap. Sometimes you can only use a small flat rate box, or, some swaps are for only plants, some for only seeds. You get the idea. :) Totally up to you to decide. You also make sure that everyone sends and receives within the allotted time frame.

Swaps are a lot of fun! And we are always excited to make a new friend :)

I hope this clears things up a little and doesn't confuse you more, lol.

If anyone else has anything to add to help, please do.

I'll take December if it's still open. :) Thanks Vina!


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Looks to me like we only need one more host and that is for June.


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

I am kind of a newbie. I traded a lot a number of years ago, but life takes us different directions and I didn't have as much time for gardening. But, I have moved and have a big yard to fill and trading is a great way to do that. I would like to take June if it is still open and it is ok with you. Kelli

RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

ps. Has anyone heard from Nina about posting Jan? Hope she's okay??


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

I'm am so sorry about not getting back to you about my month! My aunt had brain surgery last week and I have been tied up with helping her out! Hopefully I still have time to start my month! I was hoping to do a winter sow theme for my month. I'm not sure how this works so I guess you'll email me for my Addy?


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

My rules are as follows:
Winter sow theme so any seeds that are good to start indoors or outdoors.
You can send as many seeds as you would like. Try to send no more than 3 of each.
Return postage and labels, bubble envies.
I think it would be neat to send in a card or note that i can put in someone elses envie when i return it, just introducing yourself and to say hi to all the participants.
I hope the rules are ok and since I am late starting I'd like to have the seeds in to me by Feb. 8th and I can have them mailed back by the following Mon.

Thanks!!!!!


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Just wondering if anyone would like to try their hand at hosting in May. I will do it if no one is interested. I have May and November and it happens that we will be visiting our son and daughter in law in Texas in May. Maybe someone who has never hosted would like to give it a try. I would be happy to help you along with the job. Just let me know.

Margo/smitties


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

I hate to do this, but I am also going to have to bow out for the September exchange since I am going to California again this year on vacation. Last year my laptop quite working while on the plane and if I wasn't for Margo taking over for me I don't know what I would have done.

I am attending the National Heirloom Expo again this year. It was just wonderful and learned so much.

RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

I can take may I've never done this but would love to try lol I have only done normal seed trades but this seems like allot of fun:)

RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Shirley, I can do November but hoped someone would pick up May. A couple members have offered to take one month, (Ellie is unable to do April). May is going to be tough for me to do so am waiting for someone to grab that. Thanks though :)

RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

My mistake, in a previous post, I mentioned Ellie could not do April but it was September. My apologies for the mix up and hope I didn't cause a problem.

 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

No problem here. I am a tad confused though :) - but if you need someone to take Sept, I am happy to!


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

TheMidnightGarden, September is yours. Thank you. Ellie had posted a bit ago that she was unable to do September so will appreciate you taking it for her. I made the mistake of putting April as a month she wanted out of instead of September. She is indeed doing April and she started the post today. (You may want to join it, check it out). Hope this helped with your confusion and if you need some help in September, don't hesitate to ask.

I know. It's June, but that thought just came from out of the ether and I don't want to forget. LOLOLOL.

Uh oh, risinsun. I had not noticed that. Our prospective hostess may have forgotten. Hopefully things will settle down with the MNF swaps going forward.

Vina,
I know Karen has ideas for July in mind but she was a little under the weather yesterday so you might not hear back immediately.
Alana


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Thanks, Alana.

Hi Vina - I'll try and have something started late tonight or in wee hours of tomorrow morning and will email you then. Alana has very kindly offered to help, so once I have some ideas firmed up, I'll run them by her and email you too.

Where are those icebergs when we need them?

Karen


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

Hey!

Karen, sorry to hear your under the weather. I agree! It's so hot! I thought I was m~e~l~t~i~n~g today :)
Hope your feeling better!
Can't wait to see what you have in store for us!
vina


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

The July MNF Swap will not take place for a variety of reasons, including the weather and the fact that so many folks take vacation in July. We will be back strong in August with Vina's MNF Iris', Hosta's & Daylilies OH MY! Year 2, which was a great one last year. Be there or be...left out.

Alana


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

It has been a long time since I have done a swap. So,If you don't hear from her, I could probably put together something simple. I'll keep watching to see if she posts.


 o
RE: 2013 MNF (Make New Friends) Schedule In Need Of Hosts

That's great Beth. If she does not post by tomorrow, why don't you go ahead? She indicated that she had problems maintaining internet so she may be unavailable for an unknown amount of time.
Thanks.
