I know that there's already a swap in progress but I thought it would be fun to have one for the new year!
Registration by: December 18, 2008 (CLOSED)
Partners will be given by: January 1, 2009
Packages must be mailed by: January 31, 2009
The rules:
1. Every swapper will pick a flower that they like and the whole package for that person will be based around that flower.
2. When I say this is a flower swap I don't mean you have to send flowers, I mean you have to send flower themed items like: Flower notepad, Yarn in the colors of the flower they like, Stitch markers with that persons fav flower on it, Flower scented lotion, body wash, bath soak, perfume, ect.
3. Goodies are optional and are not included in the price range.
4. Have FUN!

The reason I am spacing out the Registration and Giving the partners is because everyone will be busy with the holidays.
I thought it would be a nice New Year Swap!
Please fill out the included Questionnaire and send it to Bonnie@Thelearningdiary.com

I was getting ready to send in my questionnaire and realized that goodies are not suppossed to be included in the price range:eyebrow2: Just to make sure I am clear on the rules than what exactly do you mean by a goodie? Is it hot choc, candy, etc...

Ooo I hope I can do this one, I'm gonna have to wait until closer to the deadline to be sure that nothing will obliterate my "fun stuff" budget. One question, though...
My favorite flowers tend to be a little... untraditional... is it OK if I list a couple of choices and my partner could choose the one that is easiest for them or even combine them?
Thanks!!!

I tried to add it too and a message came up that I can only have four pictures in my signature.. I counted and I only had three but then I realized they count the smiley faces as a picture :) so I had to get rid of one of my old buttons in order to add it hope this helps

Well good thing payday is next weekend I will be off my crutches by then so I can go out and yarn shop. I don't want to venture out on crutches in the deep snow this weekend I love to yarnshop but I like only having a sprained ankle not a broken leg which with my luck I would end up with if I went yarn shopping with crutches. But I will get my stitch markers done this weekend while I sit with my leg up. Hmmmm what color maybe pink, maybe red, maybe yellow, maybe blue. I'm not telling you. Yet. HEE HEE HEE

MAmaDawn
01-09-2009, 11:47 AM

I got my package! Thank you oneyarn! I love it all!

I took pictures, but I can't find my cord so I'll post them as soon as I do find them... we moved a week before Christmas (not a good idea)... so I know it's around here somewhere...

But I got 3 balls of yarn, one Kid Merino in white, this is my FIRST ball of this yarn and I'M IN LOVE!!!! :inlove: It is sooo soft! And 2 balls of Regia sock yarn, the CRAZY thing is I found this yarn on Rav a little over a week ago and I wanted to try it.... Then I got it in the mail... :teehee: It's going to make a wonderful pair of socks... now just have to find the right pattern (thanks for the excuse to look at patterns :teehee:)

I also got a VERY cute bird house that's the shape of a watering can with my flower, daisies on it. And Chocolate in non-melting form... he he he... it's the microwavable cake and it has carmel, yum!

And a pattern to go with the Kid Merino for a scarf, Mist (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mist-lace-scarf), that I LOVE.... And some Daisy seeds...

And it was all packaged so cute! It was wrapped with yellow and white tissue paper and the box had flower all over it.

Thank you so much, you have made my first swap a wonderful one! :woot:

Got my package from Angie (cheekyprincess) today! I got goldfish crackers (I have currently 7 goldfish), a flower journal, several patterns, two skeins of Sensations DreamWeave, which is wool-silk (and very soft and touchable and also distracting for college students who pick up their mail on the way to class and lack the willpower to wait until after class to open the package...:teehee: ) in a lovely pea-green color (my fave color is blue but I know that this color of green goes with my eyes... it will make a wonderful hat, or gloves, or may get incorporated into a sweater...). Also, two skeins of Patons SWS (Soy Wool Stripes) - I've never used anything with any soy whatsoever before, so I am really excited about this! Its kind of navy-rust-purply stripes and is also really, really soft and touchable and distracting. There are a few note card thingers that I'm not really sure yet what I will do with them... but I'm sure I will find something perfect! And a set of stitch markers with flowers and purple beads (the purple is to go with foxgloves, which was my flower choice and virtually impossible to find... sorry Angie... you did an excellent job of getting creative! :cheering: ) that are very beautiful, and everything came in a really nice flower-covered box with a lable thing on the front... which will be a great place for me to put my leftover ends which are currently rolling around my bookcase getting tangled in the airlines for my killifish tanks. cloud9

I got some chocolates which are half gone already, a bubble bar from Lush, a photo album to put pics of my kids in, patterns, pocket calendar, stitch markers with tulips on them(so cute), picture holders in the shape of tulips (the flower I selected), and then the yarn. I got a skein of trendsetter pinot yarn in a multi colored colorway which is bright and beautiful, two skeins of Louise Herdig Kashmir Aran it's 55% Merino Wool-35% microfibre-10% cashmere and I am so excited to try this yarn. I don't know what I want to make outofit but it is so soft my daughter keeps coming over and rubbing it on her cheek it is so soft(she's only three) Oh I should mention one skein is green and the other pink.

As for the one I am sending out I will be a little late getting it out. but I will get it out as soon as possible.

I got 2 patterns....one for the Zinnia Shawl by Sunflower Designs and a Flower Block pattern by Lisa Millian. She sent me 3 skeins of yarn....Baby ULL in a pretty purple, Knitpicks CotLin in a mauve and Plymouth Yarn Sockin' Sox in a greens/blues colorway. These are all new yarns to me and will be fun to knit with. She also sent me the cutest journal with butterflies, bugs and flowers all over it.
MAmaDawn, you are the best...thank you for everything!:muah:

FINALLY!! I got my package mailed off today!! I have actually learned something from doing this swap. First this was my first and last swap. I need more time than one month which I didn't realize until I did a swap. I have felt very guilty because I and my child got sick. I feel guilty because there is more I would have liked to do but due to time and money I could not get everything finished that I wanted to. I'm feeling guilty because even though I spent more than the required amount of money it doesn't look my partner is getting much. I'm sorry in advance if this wasn't what you were expecting. I did have a lot of fun picking out the yarn and patterns.

So imagine my surprise when I got my package in the mail yesterday. It was the package I mailed out. Somehow they screwed up and sent it back to me rather than to my partner. So it will be making its return trip out right away and I will have it clearly labeled and maybe a little note attached to pay attention to the labels on the box. GRRRRR. So please forgive me partner I haven't forgot about you its just the postman that sucks.

Yes and my partner has not got hers yet as the post man brought it back to me and I have not had a chance to get it back out as was laid off from job and just started new one. I will get it out ASAP. I was very surprised when I got a message from my babysitter that I got a package in the mail and I was not expecting one. Then saw it was my own package. Any ways I promise it will be out in mail this week.

I still did not get a package from this swap and it ended like 4 months ago. If anyone would like to be my angel I would really appreciate it as it seems I have been forgotten. I have been through two swaps since then and was an angel in one of them so I know this is standard protocol in a swap when someone cops out

Right now I am so so sad and disappointed in my partner:fingerwag:as I waited so patiently and believed in them and still didnt get a dang thing not even a hi/hello :pout:

:teehee: Thanks to an "angel" I recieved my package a couple of days ago and I was so shocked and surprised to even get one as I had given up so long ago. My theme was Honeysuckle and my pal did an awesome job incorporating that into a package as my pick was so hard to find. Thank You so much Valerie I absolutely :heart: everything you got me and I love the way the package all comes together!

I found a bunch of goodies..My pal bought me some dream in color smooshy sock yarn in the colorway happy forest which is such a lovely color. Included was a beautiful scarf pattern that resembles the vine of honeysuckle. Also I got some fancy tea, some delightful smelling room spray, lotion and a candle in a fragrant honeysuckle scent.A yummy brownie treat and one of my favorites was the cute little hummingbird feeder (my pal did her research and knows me well)

and I was running around saying "my squishy" as I was rubbing the yarn against my cheek LOL My fiance thought I was crazy

Thanks Valerie:hug: :muah: :hug: :muah:

I got a surprise on Tuesday of this week. Nephnie was my angel. She was so sweet! I love everything she got me. I will post pictures as soon as I can figure out how to get the pictures onto this computer. I am sorry about not responding sooner but I had to go to Portland and take a class on how to care for my daughter after she has her transplant. Thank you so much for everything Nephnie!!
