My New Friend! It's official, my Friends Swap partner Leona, who resides in Hawaii, received the FRIENDS package that I put together for her. I had such a great time shopping and gathering goodies for my new blogger friend. Leona and I have emailed several times since Khris, the swap hostess, announced that Leona and I were partners. I am thrilled that we have gotten to know each other and have become friends via the web/blog!
I took photos of the packaging; Leona loves chickens, so the wrapping paper and gift tags were all about chickens and a lil' bit country - It was such great fun to have a theme to go by! I look forward to our continued communication and friendship and cannot wait for another similar FRIENDS swap down the road.
I have been MIA for the last couple of weeks....glued down inside my craft and sewing rooms that is!!! I have been working away on several craft projects and loving every busy moment of it. I am finishing up my gifts for the Friendship Swap that Khris at Sew Prim Khris is hosting; SO MUCH FUN!! I am also working on making pincushions for the Secret Sister Pincushion Swap that Kim at Creating by the Lake is hosting, I love pincushions such a cute added decoration and notion for the sewing room and so many patterns/ideas to choose from.
I have been also working on several papercrafing swaps and so enjoy the various themes and categories (cards, altered items, 6x6 recipe cards, scrapbook cards etc.). My collection of stamps and papercrafting supplies is HUMUNGUS!!! I have over 200 stamp sets.... just cannot get enough! Kind of like my fabric stash, I just never know when I MUST have or want that one specific print, color, pattern or tool! I keep my stash full with a large selection and variety, it's ready at all times - LOL. Bottom line is I am hooked, addicted and loving it!!
