I’ve had a lot of fun and have been wonderfully blessed by participating in various swaps: learning new skills, trying new ideas, sharing my imagination, receiving wonderful creations, and making new friends.
If you’re looking for swap opportunities, here’s a blog devoted to indexing swaps called SwapDex.
I’ve just signed up for what will be my last swap for the year due to travel and other upcoming holiday adventures. The Deck the Halls Ornament Swap is hosted at the Home is Where Your Heart Is blog. Sign-up deadline is Oct. 15 so hurry over to read the rules and requirements.
These lovely ribbon spools are a gift from my friend Carol. I read about and admired them on her blog WIP but couldn’t find them here in Tucson. She generously bought some and sent them to me—and refused reimbursement. What a gracious thing to do!
I already showed you the Amphitrite doll I made for my swap partner. Here’s the beautiful art doll I received from my swap partner Betsy. I love anything ocean related so she thoughtfully took that into consideration.
This gorgeous bear was made by Saucy. His name is Wallace and I became his adopted mother in Saucy’s 200th post give-away! You can read Wallace’s adorable story here. Can you see his sweet little face? Oh, what a character he is!
This is the fabulous Mrs. Mooney. She made her way to my house via Karen at Mrs. Kwitty’s Cottage. There’s a wonderful story about Mrs. Mooney you can read here.
Wallace and Mrs. Mooney (she’s single again lest you think she’s being naughty) have become romantically involved; they’re going on a date tonight—what a cute couple!
The “Prayers for Our World” Project
This Sunday afternoon will be spent working with Kristie to finish the prayer flags and sew them into the final banner. What a blessing this will be and a perfect activity on a beautiful day here in Tucson.
Every day has become extra special because of the great comments you leave on my blog—what a joy to be able to share our creative lives with each other. Thank you so much!
I hope your weekend is chock-full of many blessings!
