This swap is closed with 10 players

I would like to host a 6x6 Christmas Recipe page swap.

The page needs to be Disney themed or have hidden mickeys, the recipe should to be "Christmasy" but not limited to Disney recipes.

I will close the swap at 16 people but will adjust if less sign up.


Deadlines:
Sign-up: October 15
Due Date: November 23 (in my mailbox)

*****Please Note*******
You are commiting to making pages for everyone who signs up for the SWAP, not just your type of food.

If this swap fills up, you are commiting to 16 pages not 4


Let me know what recipe you will be doing when signing up (or what type of food). I will pick once I see what needs to be filled. I broke the swap up into different types of food so we don't end up with 10 cookies and a goose recipe. :rotfl:


I thought this might make a nice gift once it is all put together.

Drinks

I'd like to participate! Sounds yummy! I'll take a dessert slot - I have a recipe for Cranberry Bars that are to die for! I actually won a dessert contest at work for them... :)

I would like to make chocolate peanut butter balls.. These are simple and just sooo yummy and a great addtional to any "candy" basket

Sounds fun, this is my first day on this site so without sounding too dumb, I just make up a 6x6 page and make up to 20 copies of it and then we'll all get recipe pages in return? Sounds wonderful! If that's all there is to it I'd like to do a drink page of various holiday drinks! What a fun idea, thanks!!

I have 3 friends who would like to join the swap but are not board members. They want do a recipe book for family or friends who like Disney. Does anyone who signed up mind if I add them??


Also, I think I might need to low the count to 16 to get more people. I was thinking of combining appitizers and side dishes. Any objections???

This would make a great christmas gift for my friend that loves recipes. I will do appetizers-crab dip please. I have a ?. we need to make original pages for each person and not make copies......is this correct?

MaryPoppinsLives

I would love to participate, but I am pretty new to the swap thing. Is there anyway you could send me a picture of what a page might look like, so I know what to do. I've never done a 6x6 page, I've only done CM albums, they are 7X7 and I've never done a recipe page. I could do whatever category you need the most, just let me know, I'll find something to fit. Thanks.

I have been watching this thread for a while and and finally decided to join, (I wasn't sure about the 6x6 size). I'll take main dishes - Stuffed Chicken Rolls if that is OK.

I already sent a PM saying that I would like to join and do the recipe for Grapefruit Cake from one of the WDW resorts.

If you go to ww.twopeasinabucket.com and search under "recipe" you will find tons of samples.

Ok, I looked at some on the twopeasinapod site, I think I can do this. The only other swap I've tried is a card swap and I never got my cards, they must have been lost in the mail. So might as well give it another try. Put me down for a side dish, Broccoli Casserole.

MaryPoppinsLives

Sorry I have been MIA -- We had a bit of a family thing nothing major just kept me busy for the last week.

I updated the sign ups and 10 people signed up.

That's great!!!

For those of you who had a question about the 6x6 size, I did that so you can make 4 pages out of one sheet of 12x12 instead of only 1 if it was 8x8. You can use the 6x6 pages in larger album sizes by attaching them to paper the same size as your album. I was planning on giving mine as a gift and thought I would make a cover and bind it with ribbon.

Thanks for signing up

Is this swap finalized yet? I wanted to get started, but would like a final count before I start so I know what I need.

I can make an extra if you need me too. Just let me know what category you need.

Has anyone heard from MaryPoppinsLives? Think everythings ok? Should we continue with our pages? Did anyone get any mailing info? Thanks!

havencruiser

I have all my pages done and am waiting for an address....Can we have somebody else host this if she can't?? I would be happy to fill in as hostess if needed.

havencruiser
11-02-2005, 06:26 PM
Has anybody had any luck hearing back form the hostess about this swap?

Can we get a count on who here is done with their 10 and ready to mail?? I'm in the process of moving and in other swaps and want to go to the post office one time and not misplace anything in our move! Thanks!

PigletsPal
11-04-2005, 07:20 PM
I was so hoping to give this as a Christmas gift....:( We now have power since the Hurricane....YAHOO!!!. If someone else steps up to the plate and if the date is changed to a little later in the month. Since I also haven't started since final details were never posted. I would still like to be in this swap.

cwnhokie
11-04-2005, 08:10 PM
I must be a bad luck swapper. The first swap I signed up for my cards were lost in the mail and I never saw have gotten them. Now the second one I try the host disappears. Maybe it's just me?

havencruiser
11-04-2005, 10:27 PM
Since some folks have already done their pages and some are still interested but waiting for a final count, I wil lbe happy to host this swap since nobody has heard from the origianl host. Let's give folks until 11/7 to express their interest and category and allow for new folks to sign up. We can accomodate up the original 16 giving preference to those folks who were already signed up but anybody else who wishes to join us can until we get to 16 folks. I can also post some slots for this on the other boards where I host some swaps.
So.......post your interest in this and llet me know what recipe you are doing. I will give final count and the mailing details on MOnday.
Happy scrapping!

Sorry I haven't posted the final intrustions. I went on vacation and then my mom got sick I am having to fly back and forth from NJ to CA to keep my job and take care of her and have not been online.

I see that soemone else volunteered to host the swap, I am not sure what where this stands with her If she has sent you all her address etc...

If it is okay I would like to finish out as hostess of the swap and can send you all a PM with my address and final instructions. I will check back this evening to see how everyone feels about this.

Again, I am really sorry ---I am not a flake and really hope that at the end everyone will feel good about swap.

Thank you to all for your concern about my address, I guess I wasn't thinking about this being a public board. I am so used to e-groups etc... anyone who missed my address please let me know.

My mom is doing a lot better and has moved in with my sister so she has someone around her in case she needs help. She had a mini stroke while at the kitchen table and fell under the table and could not get up by herself Plus I think she was disorianted. Fortunatly, she had plans to go out shopping with my aunt that afternoon or it might have been longer until she was found.

Thank you again to everyone for being so understanding.

MaryPoppinsLives
11-18-2005, 02:29 PM
I rec'd a package today in the mail. It was mailed from Gardner,MA and has a note inside saying "Thanks for hosting the swap" and then it has my address. The other stuff is all different, there is a large die cut that says MINNIE, a Thanksgiving tag, Mickey stickers, and four plastic bags with what looks like file folders and tags with a cheerleader's megaphone.

There is no return address inside or return postage and no recipes. :cool1: The return address on the outside doesn't have the name and is hard to read


Anyone care to claim this. I think it got mixed up with a different swap.

Thanks

cwnhokie, I am so sorry I didn't see your previous post and when I read that you didn't get an answer to your question, I went back and looked and saw your post from 11-22. I didn't mean to not answer... I am sure however you sent them will be okay.

I rec'd piglet's pals swap today. PattyT, yours still has not come. Ay idea where you sent them to??? :rotfl2: :rotfl2: I don't think you will live that one down. I forwarded your other swap to WDWMOM.

Piratesmate has asked to angel for KatDisney since she seems to have fallen off the face of the earth, I have been contacted by other hostess that she has failed to complete several swaps. Piratesmate said she could get them to me in couple of days. so hopefully I can get everything out by Saturday.

I am around the rest of the week and will check in daily to update on the status of rec'd swaps.

Have a magical day and a wonderful week.

Hey ladies - quick question! I see that you only have one page in the beverages category & are rather heavy on the desserts. I do have a chocolate peanut butter ball recipe & can simply do what you've been expecting. No problem.

On the other hand, I could do a page on the Frunch recipe from Boma so that the end product will be a little bit more balanced. Doesn't much matter to me - what do you think? I'll be starting after supper.

Sorry Sherry - It was my intention to take them over before the post office closed this afternoon, but I'm not going to make it. :( Everything was all set, but I was having trouble with my blood sugar & I can't drive when it gets this low. They'll get there in the morning for sure & you should still have them by Friday...at least that's how long dizney-cruiser's CJ takes to get here each month. Sorry I couldn't get them out today.

Here's hoping he's wrong and you get it tomorrow...although I didn't get dizney-cruiser's CJ that she mailed yesterday. I think this is the first time that I didn't get it in a single day. :confused3 Sorry for the delay.

ETA: The mail must be getting hreally slow already. I didn't get the CJ again today, so there's little hope that my recipe pages made it to MaryPoppinsLives today or will make it even tomorrow. :( I'm really sorry for the delay.

According to her signature, MaryPoppinsLives is at WDW until today. Hopefully everything has arrived by the time she returns & checks her mail. I have to say - I'm getting really excited to see everything! :goodvibes

I was planning on using it as a gift as well. When I sign up for swaps, I use the deadling...or what I thought was the deadline as a gauge for how I will use the finished items. I assumed that a swap with a 11/15 deadline would be here for Christmas. Most frustrating/annoying is the lack of communication.
Sorry to be grumpy but I take my commitment of time and energy very seriously and it's annoying to have this happen.

I have to agree with you Havencruiser. I haven't done many swaps but this one is taking a long time. I understand things happen but...Hope we get it soon.

Not having any communication from the hostess about the swap is what bugs me. :confused3 :confused3 :confused3

Has anyone emailed her? I've sent a PM, but she hasn't been on since Nov 30th. I hope nothing is seriously wrong. I wonder if she actually went to WDW at the beginning of the month?? She's a nanny isn't she? I can't imagine that she'd be able to be away this long or that the family could change their plans to stay this long if she went with them. :confused3

I hope nothing is seriously wrong as well. It's just that over a month ago Havencruiser offered to take over but then our host came back and now we're still without our pages....It's almost a turn off to exchanges since I haven't been involved in many.... :confused3
On a fun note: Hope you all are getting into the holiday season!!! We went to Disney this past weekend and it was chilly and so nicely decorated that the holiday spirit is finally in me!! Take care!

All swaps aren't like this one. As a matter of fact, I haven't ever been involved in any as frustrating as this one. Don't let this one be the gauge for whether or not you do any more swaps. Most work out pretty well when there is communication and a sense of responsibility and commitment by everybody involved.

:confused3 I'm not stressing over it, and I'm going to give MaryPoppinsLives the benefit of the doubt. This is a crazy time of year, and sometimes life gets in the way. I know everyone spent time on this, but keep it in perspective - it's just a swap. I just hope she's OK.

I agree. I hope her mother hasn't been sick again. I remember something about her living far away and needing a lot of care.

This is the second swap I've been in on this board in the past few months that has had problems. I won't be joining another one. I also hope very much that something hasn't happen. Just wished she would let us know and if it has I'm sure we all would be OK with waiting, but it's the "not communicating" that has me so upset!!!
This was a christmas gift and it was the only reason I join was to give it to a frined. Now it's only 10 days til christmas. Guess I better get my backside off to the mall now to fine another gift...........NOT HAPPY!!

I must have bad luck with swaps. This is only my second one. The first one, a card swap, I never got my cards. I suppose whoever did get them liked them because they were never returned to the hostess either. Now this one is not working out so well either. Oh well! I still have 3 scrapbooks to finish and 14 Tshirts to make. Merry Christmas everyone!

It's a case of "Page-napping". A recipe hijack!

Well... I'd rather see a "your recipe pages are in the mail" post... but at least this is better than a bunch of "bumps", lol!

Hope I get my Priority Mail money back ;) I know it's just a swap, but I too was waiting on this and put time/effort into it, just like the rest of you did. Of course I hope everything is ok, and I know this time of year can get crazy, but then she should have let Havencruiser finish it off like she was about to, then this would have been done a month ago....
Anyway, hope you all are getting your shopping done. Just a few more days!!
Happy Holidays!!

stupid question: what does bumping mean on this site??

piratesmate
12-22-2005, 07:42 PM
It just means that we're posting something to "bump" the thread back to the top rather than let the thread "die a slow & painful death" or just fade into oblivion. ;)

Hi ladies,
MaryPoppinsLives is in one of my swaps as well and has not been heard from. I read on another Yahoo group that she may be having major issues at home -- I have contacted the moderator there to see if I can get her phone# or get a message passed along for her to contact me... I will let you know if I hear anything.

Hmmmm...I was *sure* that Santa would bring me my Christmas Recipe pages but when I got back from my Disney Magic Christmas cruise and checked my presents that Santa and my mailman had delivered while I was gone, they weren't there :-( Poor me! I wasn't able to check the mail often while I was on the cruise and at the parks but did anybody hear anything yet???
