Thanks Tarnyia. Have replied to your PM.

Am excited to know who my swap partner is and am in the process of gathering and making lots of goodies to her FQ bon bon with. I also have a great plan for the 7" heatmat/potholder.

Tarnyia, I have re-read the previous post and ............... Do you want EVERYONE to post their bon bons by 17 November regardless of if it is going overseas or within Australia?

flower Good question Evelyn.
That date will give the overseas bonbon around 5 weeks to get to their new home... as for the local ones whether it be Aussie or USA they can still or should I say seem to take a few weeks... last year mine to Karen took 3 to 4 weeks?????
Sending them early lets us know they have arrived in time then it is up to the receiver if she wishes to open it then or save it for Christmas.............. but I bet you Miss Linda and Boobie open theirs

I have started collecting for my bon bon too Linda. Wish I knew a little more about my partner, what she likes to do 'craft-wise', favourite colours, any dislikes etc to help with my selections. Oh well, who knows, after she receives her bon bon from me she might have to start a whole new craft she never knew she wanted to try? lol!

Only 24 more sleeps till 17 November/Bon Bon Posting Day everyone!

:flower:Hi Girls... I had an email today that asked some really good questions...
so I have listed them below.so girls let us know if you do and also if you have an allergy as we wouldn't like you to get sick from your bonbon...


Do you have likes/dislikes?

Do you have any favourite colours or favourite smells?

Is there a certain craft that you are into?

This might be of assistance to your secret partners when choosing for you?

Good questions Tarnyia!

Just so my partner knows......................

Allergies:
A perfume called Taboo gives me headaches and makes me feel ill. (Funny! I wore it as a teen with no adverse reaction!!) I am ok with any other scents/oils etc. I also have an instant reaction to dark chocolate, plain potato chips and red wine (merlot to be exact!)! They must be consumed on sight and they are definitely NOT on my diet (what diet?), although I love them!!! Not that I should be too worried about any of these things as non of them can probably can't fit into one of our bon bons any way? But you could try! ha ha But if you do..... Goodness knows what I am going to wear swimming this Summer cause I know my bathers are already too small from the last time they got wet and shrunk!

Colours:
I love buttery cream tone on tones, natural, muted, earthy colours, especially greens. Sage green is my most favourite. I was never partial to fluros and bright in-your-face colours, but after the arrival of grandies I find there is a place in my stash for these too! ha ha

Crafts I am into:

I love anything to do with patchwork and quilting and I am also heavily into paper craft and greeting cards these days too!

Hoping my secret partner will come along soon and put up her list or she will have to take 'pot luck' with my selections.
lol!

Good morning Ladies, I do not have many dislikes, only one that I can think of and it is music, I do not like Wrap. Red wine, pink & white, love all colours, in fabric also, always willing to try something new, and no allergies. Lorna Oh and today is my anniversary 42 years oh my goodness.

my favorite colours are ... green and purple ... not necessarily together tho ... and i am liking yellows too lately ...

i love bright bright bright fabrics .. i don't think i have met the bright i didn't like ..

i would have to say i have a dislike of most perfumes and scents ... but i do like vanilla ... it would have to one of those lovely natural scents that i can cope with ...

i am very partial to vodka .. and try not to drink wine .. cos someone always puts too much alcohol in it and i get screaming drunk ... serious i do ... 2 glasses and i am rolling on the floor ... crissed as a picket ...

and yes .. vodka has the same effect ... but i like it ... lol

i love christmas .. it would have to be one of my most favourite seasons of the year ...

i have only 3 allergies ... an antibiotic called bactrim ... gives me hives ............ morphine ... i stop breathing ................ and ... pain ... can't handle that at all .... it makes my eyes leak and my nose run ..... terrible stuff ...

and lastly ... i love diamonds and gold ... so if you want to throw a handful of each into my bonbon i won't mind at all ...

I am not fussy at all, my favourite colour is blue but I enjoy other colours and the things I hate are....ginger, anything with ginger turns my stomach, even chocolate coated stuff.
In saying that, I looove chocolate, lol.


Happy Anniversary Lorna!

Congratulations to Lorna and her hubby! 42 years! Wow! (This December would have been our 40th.................)

I also do not like that kind of music, or punk or heavy metal etc. Do you think we are (gulp) old? Maybe we are not old enough because we still have our hearing!!

Note to self: Bobbie wants a hand full each of diamonds and gold! Runs quickly to check the email I got to make sure I don't have Bobbie for my swap partner!!!! NOPE!!! Thank goodness for that cause the closest I could come to that request is a lump of coal from off the rail tracks and some pyrite?

I love dark chocolate ginger!!! But..... oh my waist line!!!! ha ha

i would rather be called a relic ... old fashioned ... over the hill ..... Ancient .. Prehistoric .. Antediluvian .. and even an old fart .... than to have to be subjected to that kind of noise .. cos it sure as shit ain't music ...

lease 30, being that I am 60 right now. hugs Lorna

I don't like ginger in any form either only allergies I have is medical, love music of any kind mmm!!!!! maybe draw the line on modern jazz (boring) Love Vodka and Gin, wine sends me silly enjoy a glass of good brewed beer drink but sadly with all these darn meds I am taking I have to stick to Tea water and soft drinks I am open to most coulours its a challenge but my favourites are shabby chic'in all I am happy with anything I am given

Congratulations Lorna well done it would have been our 49th next March mind you I do tell everyone I am only 38 I will have to be careful in future


Hope you are all having a good day

I am confused and befuddled...and no, it wasn't the pear cider...

I must have missed the email that assigned partners. I have been checking in here to see who was my partner. Can it be resent to me?

As to the questions and answers...I am allergic to rude people. But no foodstuffs. Some intolerances, but only if I pig out on them and that will be up to me, to self-disciplinize. Or not. Twisted Evil

I like fresh bright colours, black and whites, and don't particularly like muddy pinks/purples/blues.

All music likings are decided upon on a case by case basis...cos I HAVE found the occasional song i like, in a genre I hate.

I adore chocolate, in its many forms...except for choc coated licorice, that's a nasty trick indeed and a waste of good chocolate. Maltesers are a fave, as are Lindor choc balls and Darryl Lea peanut clusters...something for every price range Very Happy. Jelly snakes and jubes are most welcome.
