CLOSED: Thanksgiving Swap

Ocean Springs, MS

Anyone interested in having a Thanksgiving Swap. I could open it now and have sign-ups until October 25. I would like to suggest some ideas for the swap:
1. No more than $20.00 plus postage
2. Include 2 or 3 recipes that you traditionally cook for Thanksgiving (you could even include the ingredients and a baking pan for one of the recipes)
3. If your buddy says its okay, send plates, napkins, tablecloth, etc. for their dinner
4. Send at least one small plant that is fall-themed (orange, red, yellow,etc.) or some bulbs that will bloom next spring
5. Send an explanation of a tradition that your family does every year
6. Send 2 or 3 packs of seeds that are fall-colored
7. Send a box of chocolates or some other sweet treat that your buddy may like
8. send a small harvest wreath or a craft idea with supplies to make the Thanksgiving/harvest craft
9. a fall/harvest scented candle or potpourri
10. send gourds or other natural decorations

Please let me know what you think. If you would like to sign up, go ahead and let me know. Also, when you sign up, please list things you would like to receive if your partner can get them. Also, list anything you would not like to receive (such as candles, sweets, etc.)

Hope to make this swap a fun one. love, julie

My wants and likes: paper and plastic wear for thanksgiving dinner, hyacinth bulbs, fall or Christmas scented candles, dark chocolate, recipes, seeds (foxglove, columbine, delphinium, or any other early blooming flowers), lily of the valley, paperwhite bulbs, any kind of fall picks to make a centerpiece, and I'd love an explanation of a thanksgiving tradition your family does. Well, I think I've said enough. Love, Julieanne

Thanks Julie!

Sign me up please?

Sand Springs (Tulsa), OK(Zone 7a)

Sounds great Julie but I am going to have to pass on this one. I need to finish up the ones I am in now and be very selective of the ones I join, if any, since I am now unemployed. I will however be lurking on your thread to see all the goodies!!! ^_^

Have fun!

Ocean Springs, MS

Great! Got you down, irisluvr0252 and taters55!

Crit, sorry about your unemployment, but glad to see you "lurking."

love, julie

Ocean Springs, MS

Morning, everyone! Hope all of you are doing well. Spread the word about this swap. I'd like to have at least 8-10 people play. love, julie

Cocoa Beach, FL(Zone 10a)

I'd like to join but will be moving mid swap so person mailing to me will have to check with hostess for address. Love handmade items. Full aprons, decorative pot holders, quilted placemats, dishtowels and dishrags. Outdoor decorative flags. No candles. Homemade cookies or breads, love recipes and home canned goodies. Small decorative wreath or door decoration suitable for condo. Bulbs and seeds ok but no living plants (in case post office screws up yet again).

Ocean Springs, MS

Great Mittsy! i'll make sure your buddy gets it to the right address. So glad all of you joined!
love, julie

Julie, I've been putting the link out on threads I go to. Hope you get some more partakers of this great swap!

Ocean Springs, MS

Sorry you can't join us deejay! Miss you.
Crit, Thanks for the help.
Hope everyone has a great Saturday. Love, Julieanne

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

I'd love to join, Julie. It'll probably be too late for me to send plants but I can share fresh Spring blooming bulbs along with other goodies.
I prefer dark chocolates and can always use a new recipe or wreath / kit. No food allergies and love homemade goodies. Jarred candles are great too and I have a Scentsy warmer if anyone wants to send a pack of cubes. Clean scents like beach, linen, vanilla & citrus and Earthly scents like apple, cinnamon, pachouli, peach, vanilla, and coffee are some of my favs. Not much of a fan of sweet sugary scents and can't stand the smell of Gardenias. It's just hubby and me so we don't need plates, silverware, etc. I don't sew or should say I can't, but am pretty handy with a glue gun. If I get a Buddy who hasn't sent me a decorated rock yet, that would be fun too.

Happy Fall, ya'll!
