Is anyone interested in participating in another recipe card swap? The theme would be desserts. If people would rather do a different theme we could.

I'm thinking cards would be due October 31st, that would give us enough time to get them back and try the recipes for the holidays if we want.

Post here if you are interested in participating.

Thanks,
Ginny

Ok ladies, how about a sign up deadline of September 27th, is that too late? Cards should be mailed to me by Halloween and then I will send them out. Let me know what recipe you will be doing and I will post it for everyone to see.

Ginny

Ok ladies, we are up to 7, if Gerry still wants to participate. Sorry I haven't been on in awhile; work has been very crazy...

How are we with the deadline? Is it still good for everyone?

I have not heard of a pretzel salad....that sounds interesting....definitely game to try it. Love pretzels.

deadly chocolate......anything chocolate I am in! Chocolate is my downfall.

I should have my cards done by then. Now, just to get myself started......lol.

Deadline sounds good to me since it is a small group. My area has just now started all the festivals and a upcoming scrapbook expo in Ontario, CA, so I will be out and about during the weekends.

Gerry, go to the June recipe swap post, there are some guidelines in how to do a recipe card. JBlaze also has some photos in her gallery to look at.

If you need help, just let us know.

MsGinnyS
10-10-2009, 09:33 AM
Thanks Kray! Sorry Gerry, it seems I never have time to come onto the board unless it's a weekend. :-(

I was thinking the same guideleines as the June swap. 6x6 card with at least 3 embellies etc.

I will PM everyone with my addy so when you are ready to mail you will have it.

I was thinking I would do Chocolate Bliss? I think that's what it's called. I'll get on it this week.

could you send me a pm with your address please, I have my cards done.

kray
10-19-2009, 07:50 PM
Gerry....when you send your cards in, make sure you include the one you are keeping as well. Makes it easier when sorting them out.

Ginny, I should have mine done this week. As we speak, I am printing the recipe, now to place it on the card.

Can't wait to try all of these...yum yum!!!

MsGinnyS
10-19-2009, 08:48 PM
I pm'd everyone my addy, so please let me know if you did not receive it. I can't wait to see everyone's work!

Ginny

LuLu
10-19-2009, 10:45 PM
Got your addy, thanks. I'm doing Chocolate Elegance but I am having a problem with my printer. It seems like it doesn't want to talk to the computer. It's a new printer too. Me and printers do not get along!!!!

ETA on 10/22. I got it printed! I'm going to send in only 6. I'm doing them on some pre-printed 6X6 LO's so they are all going to be different. I'll work on it this weekend and mail on Monday.

kray

Got mine finished. I am putting them in the envelope now. I will mail either Wednesday/Thursday.

Thanks Ginny for hosting the swap!

Got your cards LuLu and Cathy and they are awesome! My neighbor who joined us for this swap did her cards and they are for a soup and I didn't have the heart to tell her they were supposed to be for a dessert. Does anyone care, I can make an extra set if you do.

Ginny

LuLu
10-29-2009, 10:15 PM
I'm glad you got them. I don't care if it's a soup. I could use more soup recipes.

kray

That is definitely ok. Is your neighbor part of the seven of us? If she is the 8th, don't send one of mine back if that is the case. I still have some supplies to make more.

Mine went out Wednesday. I am in California, so hopefully you will receive them by Saturday, or no later than Monday.

I am glad your neighbor participated. It will be fun if she is able to do it again.

MsGinnyS

Got your Kray and they are beautiful! You ladies do wonderful work, and yes my neighbor is one of the 7, she is Karlin.

Great! Glad you got them. I was telling my sister about the swaps. She may be interested the next time we do them. I told her it will likely be after the holidays!

Can't wait to see all of our work!

Thanks Ginny for hosting this swap!

Just to keep everyone posted; we are still waiting on Gerry's cards then I will mail them out.

Ginny

MsGinnyS
11-11-2009, 03:28 PM
Gerry's cards have not arrived yet :-( I will mail tomorrow, should I include your 7th card in with your recipes or hold them incase she sends? Let me know what you think.

Ginny

kray
11-11-2009, 08:37 PM
If you want, you can go ahead and hold it in case she is able to send her cards.

I got mine today. Great job from everyone. Ginny, you sent mine by "priority" but I think I only gave you money for first class. Do I owe you $$?

kray
11-17-2009, 12:32 AM
Got mine today too....whoohoo!!!

Thanks Ginny for hosting the swap

I received mine today, they all are great! Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful swap.

P.S. I am also doing recipe swaps at Two Peas if you guys are interested in recipe swaps. JBlaze referred me to them, and they are very active over there.

LuLu - you don't owe me anything; I couldn't figure out how to reuse the box, sorry.

2Peas is a zoo. Take a tough skin if you go. Not all the ladies are as nice there as all the wonderful members here.

I am considering doing a Valentines-ish recipe swap due mid January if no one else is going to here, and if there is enough interest. I'll post a thread in the next few days.

I would love to see pictures of this Desserts Swap! :)
