I have been asked to explain how the prizes work.So here goes
If you are donating a prize that has to be shipped,please let me (or whoever the hostess is that month) know if you would like the postage and I will post "Winner pays shipping" after the prize.Don't be embarrassed to do this.With rising shipping costs and the cost of the prize it can really add up.
If you win a prize that requires shipping costs,please make sure your donor receives it.
The hostess will contact the prize donor and let them know who won their prize.The donor will then contact the winner to make arrangements.Please allow plenty of time for plants and leaves.They will be shipped when weather permits or the donor's collection permits.
It is perfectly fine for 2 or more people to pitch in together on a prize.
Prizes can be pretty much anything except probably edibles.Gift certificates,cash,plant related prizes,gardening supplies,homemade items.
Some of the treasured items myself and others have received include candles,stationary, hand-painted pots,knitted and crocheted items,bowls for plants,painted cups or saucers.Labels,little twists of plant food,tools,pre-cut wicks,labeling pencils or pens,little 1 or 2 ounce containers,starter pots and the like are something we can all use.
Use your imagination! Prizes don't need to cost much to be fun ^_^.
Number one on the list...please thank the person who took the time and trouble to send you a prize!
Does anyone have any questions or suggestions to add?
Thanks for the offer Jan. No problem for this month. I will have to bow out of cardholder for April and May. I might play then if someone could watch my card if needed...not sure.
Internet is S L O W right now. I will get the cards coming in confirmed but please know confirmation might come in a little slow too lol.
Here is what we are dealing with...Over 12" of snow yesterday and it was so wet and heavy everyone was flagging down the first tractor or 4-wheeler with a blade on it to help dig out of this mess. First pic is yesterday morning and the next one was late afternoon. Drifts are over 2ft. We got another inch over night and...YEP!!!...It's coming down quite heavy now :(((( On a good note, sweet hubby gradually collected over 10 5-gal buckets of packed snow to melt and use on the plants. This is off of our small COVERED front porch and half is still left to get lol. It is so pure and clear they will love it (wink) Hey, gotta think positive here ::)))) Anyone else get this mess?? Lynn?? If y'all want any for your plants, come and get it (hee, hee)
