Flower Fun Swap! (CLOSED)
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
Thanks!
Questionnaire
1. Your name (KH Screen name,Ravelry name, first name, last name):

2. Your mailing address:
3. Your primary email address:
4. If there are any problems with your questionnaire how would you like me to contact you? (Primary email or KnittingHelp PM)
5. Price category $5, $10, $15, $20 $30:
6. Your preference on possibly sending to someone in another country?
(Donít Mind Sending or Prefer Not To)

7. Is your home smoke &/o pet-free?
(all yarn being given should be kept oderless and kept away for any kind of pets for allergy reasons)

8. Do you have any allergies to pets &/o smoke?
9. Are you allergic or adverse to any types of yarns?
10. Fiber preference?
11. Color preference?
12. Other interest?
13. Would you be willing to be a Back Up Secret Knitter for someone who is unable to send to their assigned Pal? (you would then have 2 people to give to)
14. Favorite flower?

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

I was getting ready to send in my questionnaire and realized that goodies are not suppossed to be included in the price range 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!!!

You can list as many flowers as you like and your partner will choose one.
I hope you can join! Just remember that I give out partners on the 1 of january because of the holiday buzz.
