if you would like to participate, please read the rules, then sent me a pm with Garden Swap for the subject line, and your address (if I don’t already have it) along with your email address. Phone numbers are nice, but not required. Also the words "i agree to follow the rules" in the body.
here are the rules:

1 - all members must be signed up by Nov 15th (date specified)
2 – post your answers to the questionnaire in the next post.
3 - names will go out by pm on or before Nov 17th
4 - all packages must be mailed out by Dec 2nd(date specified) failure to do so will make you ineligible to participate in future gift swaps and could result in other penalties
5 - in the event of disaster striking you before you can mail out your box, notifying me as soon as possible will preserve your ability to play in the future. don't laugh, it could happen. we had 2 in the last swap. please include the reason, even if it is just "i got snowed under and couldn't do it"
6 - gifts should be mailed with a tracking number when possible (even the post office offers that for only about 50 cents more) BUT...
7 - if you order your gift to be "direct shipped" please pm me when the order is placed, with the company name so i can post "so-and-so's gift has been ordered direct ship".
8 - finally - just like last time, that there is no specific amount, but please be mindful of other's budgets, and please make sure that you would be happy if you got what you sent out. if in doubt, $15-$30 VALUE is always a safe bet. and value is much more important than cost.
9 - post that you received your gift as soon as you get it, but at least within 3 days. pictures are great if you can! if you can't either email or phone one of us.

Copy and paste is the usual way of doing it, most people put the answers in a different color than the question--if you know how to do that then great, if not then that's okay too, it just makes it easier on the eyes. thumbup

BTW, there may be some slight rule changes in the next few days just to let you all know.

It's okay Shirley, I know you wanted to play but I'd hate for you to stretch yourself short.....

More people is a lot of fun, but if it's a small group that's okay too.

I just wanted to add that I LOVE Elvis. I have an Elvis throw that I love, an Elvis glass that I have used so much his face his almost gone, and an Elvis mouse pad that needs to be replaced.

I also need socks. For some reason I can't find the kind I like anymore. I don't like them real short or real tall or real thick (like tube socks). They're the kind that can be turned down at the ankle (like little girls used to wear I guess is a good way to explain them.)I used to get them at Target or WalMart around here but now all I can find are the short footies or knee socks. I like funky or cute patterns on them.

I'm really sad that I cannot participate in this one. tears I expect to see lots of pictures though so that I can vicariously participate. Have fun everyone, and no tripping over anything getting to the fed ex man lol, trust me, it's a bad idea.

Helping the world one seed at a time

When weeding, the best way to make sure you are removing a weed and not a valuable plant is to pull on it. If it comes out of the ground easily, it is a valuable plant. Mary Ann LaPensee
