Blessings Friday



Swap Opportunities

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.

Ribbon Spools



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!

Art Doll



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.

Wallace



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!

Mrs. Mooney



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.

Your Comments

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!

I've only done one swap myself, but it was really fun. I might just wait until after Christmas to get in on another one though, way too busy.
Isn't Misses Kwitty the best?!

Thanks for sharing. I'd like to get involved in some swaps after the 1st of the year. Until then I'm creating for Christmas for home, family, and friends.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Junie,

You are such a blessing to ME! You are so kind leaving sweet comments for me and answering all my questions and taking on my prayers to add to your flags. I love your creativity, your kind spirit and the personality that shines through your blog. I rarely talk to my husband about the people who's blogs I read, but I told him about you and said I wish you were a friend or relative! Maybe I can adopt you. :-)

P.S. I wanted to swap Halloween cards with you (don't know if you remember this from my blog). If you want, please email your mailing address to me at kristi (at) whiteaker (dot) org, and I will send you a little card I made for Halloween.

Sunny Kristi said...

I can't believe your emails are getting bounced. That might explain why a lot of people "haven't gotten back to me". And I was starting to get a complex.

Hello June!
I got tagged to play the "7 things about me game" and I'm tagging you back! Check out my site for the rules! I hope you'll play!

Another fun and interesting blog post JunieMoon--I always enjoy my stops by here!! I was excited to see Mrs. Mooney make an appearance here, and learn about her new friend Wallace (he is a handsome fella!). Yeah!
Smiles, Karen
