RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap 'sending, receiving, and game

Thought I answered this a little earlier but maybe I forgot to submit my post! Anyway here it goes:

For Game #1 the Grand Total, my guess is 1627.

For Game #2 the highest # of cards sent by one person, my guess is 50.

For Game #3 I would hope everyone would send you a card Kym! So my guess is one player, you, would receive cards from all the participants.

He is Santa Claus. ( I like this one..LOL)

If athletes get athletes foot, what do astronauts get?

If Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus had a child, what would he be called?

What did Jack Frost say to Frosty the Snowman?

What did one angel say to the other angel?

Booberry and Fran....thank you...But I have to say, I think I have gotten the most out of this swap already..I have made a lot of new friends..and seeing the generosity of you all, has just meant alot to me.

I wish I could share the amount of cards, I feel like I do when I get a gift for someone and cant share what it is...LOL I think you all will be surprised....and I just cant WAIT to hear all the excitment over the cards the next few weeks.

I WANTED TO ADD....PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO GO TO THE RATE AND REVIEW FORUM, AND POST ....ESP for the newbies...we want to thank each other, and help them have a good trading rating.

Dan..we will miss you the next few days...but I hope to see your shining spirit when you return ((hugs))

RE: UPDATE: secret santa seed swap 'sending, receiving, and game

thanks everyone. it's good to know I've got a lot of family here too.

on another note, I happen to know the EXACT amount for question #1. Kym's been bursting to tell someone, and I needed a bit of good news, soooooooo.........
let me just say that it's an awesome amount, and it's good to know that I'm NOT picking up that many cards from my customers!!! I'd have to rent a trailer! Kudos to Kym for getting this thing started, and kudos to everyone for helping to spread that much positive energy in the world!

and now... it's off to sleep on the couch while listening to the wind howling outside. kind of seems appropriate tonight somehow.

g'nite everyone.

I am soo excited! I got my first card today from Jessie! She sent me such a pretty snowman card and marigold seeds, as well as a seed mix! Thanks so much, Jessie! I never receive Christmas cards just for me -- I really don't receive any personalized mail at all!-- but this site is changing that. Thanks to the seed exchange forum, I have gotten a good deal of mail in the last couple of weeks! And this secret santa swap looks to keep it coming for awhile! Thanks again soooo much Jessie! And Kym for starting this thing!

Kym you are most welcome, so glad you are enjoying what I sent and I hope your daughter enjoys what I sent her. I got the rest of my cards/seeds mailed out today. And yippee I received my first card with seeds today from nikkineel. Thank you very much. I'm gonna tape all the cards I get on the cabinet above my computer desk so I can see them constantly. This is really helping get me in the Christmas mood and hopefully before the week is out I will start decorating for Christmas. Feeling all aglow and happy with smiles.

We received a nice mix of flowers seeds and some marigolds from pufftrinket...THANKS SO MUCH!

Our cards were mailed out today. Jordan had to give them to the post office lady one by one and with each card she had to tell everyone "I made them all by myself because I am 4 years old". (She turned 4 on Nov 19 and won't let anyone forget it LOL).

This is really going to add some holiday cheer to a lot of people. Thank you so much Kym for the awesome idea!!!

Hey pufftrinket, I'm planning on giving my PO woman a nice Christmas surprise of some seed packets too! She is always so nice to me and never never overcharges me.
Here are my guesses.
#1- 2653
#2- 145
#3- 38

Kym, I'm really looking forward to winter-sowing together. I think our buddy system will work out perfectly! Together we'll have twice as many plants that we don't know what to do with! LOL ;o)
