This will be a point based swap, with each participant needed to craft a minimum of FIVE (5) points. Note: No more than 3 of your points can be from small items.
   Large = 3 points
   Medium = 2 points
   Small =1 point
If you and your partner want to increase or decrease this, then you can discuss it between then two of you.


Please PM me with any issues, concerns, problems, sending issues, etc, and post in the forum regularly. Also, let me and your partner know if you will be out of contact for any extended period of time. Make sure you have a DC number and you contact both myself and your partner when you RECEIVE and SEND.

I promise to check PMs at least once a day, but due to jobs and such, cannot guarantee being able to respond multiple times a day.  Not that I don't want to, its much more interesting that work Smiley  And I probably will check multiple times a day.  But I'm just throwing this in so no one gets upset if a PM goes unanswered for 12 hours.

Ok, now see, here's another fine swap that I have to consider. 

I just received my seeds from Seed Savers yesterday, and today I'm wishing it was warm enough to turn soil in the garden.

I've never done a point swap before.  It seems pretty self explanatory.  But I gotta decide if I'll have time with getting ready for my wedding in a few months ...

I just thought I'd give you all a teaser.  This was my garden beds from last year.  I've added a few more beds, and my garlic is up about six inches for this year.

Either you are quick or I'm a bad counter Cheesy  Only saw four in progesses so I added you.

I've never done a point swap before.  It seems pretty self explanatory.  But I gotta decide if I'll have time with getting ready for my wedding in a few months ...
Me neither Cheesy  But when I was looking at other swaps to get an idea of size, it seemed like a cool idea.  It was originally going to be two mediums and two smalls, so its almost the same.  Just added the extra point for seeds or b/c some people end up with a large out of something that should have been a medium (I would be that!  Oh, this will take me 3 hours.... 8 hours later I am still working on it)

I just thought I'd give you all a teaser.  This was my garden beds from last year.  I've added a few more beds, and my garlic is up about six inches for this year.
Oooh!  I just surveyed my garden bed yesterday and notice my garlic is starting to come up Cheesy  Only about 3-4 inches, but still, its there!!  And I noticed buds on the forcythia, which means I can plants my peas and lettuce soon.  Of course, this morning mother nature stuck her tongue out at me and left 1/2" of snow!
