RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

Great job Santa! That is an awesome list! I am going to be at the post office awhile, I think - having the poor guy measure each envelope, tell me how many stamps it takes, and stamp it somehow to keep them out of the machines. All the seeds are wrapped in bubble wrap securely but they are in regular envelopes.
Hope everyone has as much fun as I did packing everything up! Happy Thanksgiving! Nikki


 o
RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

Happy Thanksgiving Eve everyone!

My 10 yr old bought a book of Santa jokes and asked me this one this morning:

"Why does Santa have a garden?"

Bonnie (who's wondering how long it will take for someone to figure it out. He had to tell me the answer because I had just woken up, and hadn't had any coffee yet, LOL)


 o
RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

I know the answer! I never get the answers to riddles like that. I must be getting excellent arterial blood flow today.

Kym, you have done an amazing job! Relax and enjoy the Holiday.

Fran FCOFILL ASKED to be taken off the list, but I wouldnt let her...LOL I asked people to STILL send to her...she is having some problems But this swap is about GIVING, and I think it will help "CHEER" her up this season...

BUT thanks for looking out for me ! I have her address now.


 o
Secret Santa operation under way!

Well now SEE, I wondered why she wanted to completely DROP OUT! When I KNEW you had said SOOOOOO MANY times that you didn't HAVE TO SENT TO PLAY!

I am glad you made her stay, she is sweet and needs to be cheered up for the holidays!!!

:) Fran

RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

hello
I too sent mine today, I didn't want my boys getting in to them(all except the ones I still need address for) I maybe sending some cards with out seeds becouse I didn't have anything of their list and still wanted to say merry christmas to some of my friends, I hope that is ok.

ok my guess for the total sent is 1111, I know it is kinda wierd but I just have a feeling.

happy thanksgiving everyone
michelle


 o
RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

I guess: 1,033.

I sent mine today, too. I had to because when I go back to work Monday, it is craziness until Christmas. I had the poor lady at the po check in each one so I wouldn't make the mistake of not putting enough stamps. She also stamped each envelope "Not Machinable". Although they were wrapped in bubble wrap, I wanted to be sure no one's seeds were smushed.


 o
RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

Guess: I will say 1299 Which with as many ppl that is signed up if each of us just send out 10 cards each that is 1500 so it is possible it is more that 1500!

Hey everyone... I will be working on getting my stuff ready this weekend. I am so excited... I can't wait to see what comes in for everyone!

:) Fran


 o
RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

 o
RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap '150 Wish Lists'

I'm about to leave out of town, but had to check the thread first. Is the guess what number of cards it's at right now or after everyone reports in?... I'm assuming after everyone reports how many they're sending....

My guess is 1150.

It'll be neat to see how we're all smiling running to check our mail. I hope everyone has an awesome Thanksgiving. I better get going as my dad's gonna yell at me for being so late as it is. LOL

Blessings,
Angela
