August Swap Completed...
Once again I was able to participate in A Swap For All Seasons. The month of August was themed "Just My Style" and had no color designation. This is the card and tag I created to send out. Summer is my favorite season and this image just said Summer to me.
I contacted Joyce whom I was to send to. Her blog is Scrap for Joy. I found out she likes red and aqua so I gathered a few destash items in those colors and sent them off. The one item in purple was her favorite...a bubble wand. Blowing bubbles is also a very Summer thing to do. Actually for me it is any season. Joyce was very sweet and let me know she really liked her package.
All of this is what I received from May of May's Happy Daze blog. Not only did May mail from the UK she stuffed the envelope ever so full with all of these wonderful goodies! Her card and tag are elegant and I love them. I am "gobsmacked" with all the beautiful and generous paper images, ribbons, buttons, laces, bits and bobs, and even some tea to sip while creating. Thank you very very much May. I am "chuffed to bits".
I truly love this swap Linda has created and facilitated. Thank you Linda. I will be signing up for September! After all Halloween is not far away. My calendar pages are turning faster and faster as I try to keep up. Are you already creating for Halloween? I know my daughter is already purchasing and preparing for her 2nd annual Halloween Epic Party. I missed last year and will probably miss this year too. Actually I don't do scary very well. I attended Knott's Berry Farm Halloween event one year and that was too scary for me. I about died while sitting outdoors having dinner and some sort of unseen Zombie grabbed my ankle under the table. Never! Again! Ever! I get scared just normally and that was too much for me!!!
Wildfires continue in too many places. So far we are safe. Prayers continue for all those affected. We truly need rain...lots of rain. No lightening...just rain!
I have been spending all my spare time and beyond sorting beads. Upcoming post for certain.
What have you been doing as July comes to a close?
Creative Bliss Continues...
