Swapping White & Ivory...


This is only my third time to participate in Linda's A Swap For All Seasons and I am loving it.  She does a unique swap where you send to one person and another person sends to you.  This keeps it very interesting and you always connect with new people.  The theme this month...Wedding and White or Ivory.  Thank you Linda for another wonderful swap.


Here is my package I sent along to May in the UK.  Here is May's blog link.  I still feel like I am learning how this is done.  Thankfully I mailed very early in April and have just learned that May received her package yesterday and likes it.  We make one card which might be used by the recipient.  We also make one tag in the theme.  I happened to make two as I did a bride and a groom each.  Lots of de-stash in the proper colors.  I learned May really likes lace so I included a few pieces of that.


This is the swap package I received from Jayne.  Here is Jayne's blog link.  Here card is over-the-moon gorgeous and the tag as well.  Even the card envelope is stunning in pure white embossed elegance.  Thank you so very much Jayne.


Here are the beautiful and generous contents Jayne shared with me.  I feel so spoiled and blessed.  There is so much wonderful Creative Bliss here and I will be able to utilize it in my projects. Thank you is just too inadequate.  I will be linking to Linda's Linky party so be certain to go and have a look to inspire you.
Extra warm weather here for a few days.  Lots of wind and fire danger so praying for all to be safe.  By the weekend it is said to be 20 degrees colder.  Wow!  I am glad I am not the type to pack away my clothes for each season as I need such a variety all year long.  Prayers and Healing Energy for all suffering horrific tornadoes across our country.  It just seems to keep getting worse and worse for so many.
Goodbye April.  You have been a busy and exciting month.  Now let's see what the month of May holds in store for us.  Creative Bliss and do something you enjoy each and every day...

  1. A good idea to swap with only one person. And interesting that who you sent gifts to is not the one who sent to you. Nice getting to know different people and spreading a little cheer around the world. Lots of new and creative stuff to play with is always good. Best wishes, Tammy
