    Wow, I have 14 people on my list so far!

    My tip:

    I make a pile of seeds I want to share on my desk.
    Then I use the find feature (Ctrl F on a PC) to search the whole post for any matches. Then I can quickly find anyone that wants what I have to give.

    It's time for another guessing game! What would Christmas be without carols? Well, I was going to pass out a list of carols for you all to sing, but I tripped and the list got scrambled up, so you're gonna have to figure out what it is that we're all going to be singing and hearing on the radio for the next couple of months! Here's the list!

    heolnettrsif
    wynngaiaemara
    hghndrhvhwslgnaeeeaeeaoi
    cktdhhllsaee
    fottenwanmoshysr
    rnmgtuoeyridegaadonrvrabener
    hecosaclremestansau
    llllhooyyjmristsahc
    ingesblllej
    oooejttwyhdlr
    thginylohho
    murderymlobeltit

    The first person to post all of the song titles correctly will win a prize, so go for it!

    Bonnie WINS!!! I should've made it harder I guess, eh? Bonnie, could you send me an e-mail, and I'll get your prize out into the mail? Since I'm playing "Santa" at the moment, I'm gonna make you wait until you get your prize in the mail to find out what you've won...muhahahaha, or should I say... muhohohoho??? (having a "nightmare before christmas" moment there...) And, if you would, once you receive it, would you please post it here on the swap thread so everyone can "watch" you open your gift?

    Even though I do not have a large selection of seeds I can grant 15 wishes so far.

    I love this swap!!

    I also found a neat picture for a card.

    I may even make seed paper for my cards. Anyone done that before? I am going to give it a try. This way everyone on my list will get a plantable card.

    Karen or Margaret could either of you share how you make seed tape? I would like to give that a try.

    Keiki,

    I am making seed paper which is not the same as seed tape.

    If you send me an e-mail I will be happy to give you information about some websites that have very good instructions.

    Keiki I tried seed paper today...not sure how the tape works.

    I blended some paper and water in my blender, poured the mix into a sink with a frame that had a screen stretched over.

    then I sprinkled seeds and flower leaves on top. I removed from water. then flipped over on towel then pressed with a sponge to get more water out.

    Seems easy but I am not doing the best job. We will see how the paper looks when dry.

    Hi everyone. I have not checked this thread since I first signed up for the swap. Sadly, I lost a family member. Things are finally getting back to normal, if there is such a thing as normal. I will update my page and post my wish list sometime this weekend. Looks like I missed out on alot of fun, but I'm sure there is more to come. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Got to get started on my list.

    This is probably gonna earn me some coal in my stocking, but I'll risk it. This game is open to everyone. Here are 30 song titles, and your job is to be the first person to correctly post all 30 titles. Each day I will post an update with 1 letter of the alphabet in its correct place within the titles, so be checking back here daily! The first person to correctly post all 30 titles in their correct order will win a music CD with all of the songs on it. There will be no second prize. Anyone involved with this swap, excluding only myself, may try to win. So, get out your thinking caps, play yourself some Christmas music, and have fun!!! I'll be back with the letter "w" tomorrow! MUHOHOHOHOHOHOHOHO!!!!!
