Halloween Swap Happenings...
This is the assortment of Halloween goodies I mailed to my swap partner Wendy of The Frog Palace. This was the final swap this year for A Swap For All Seasons. I have really enjoyed the months I was able to participate in this unique swap. We send to one person and receive from another person.
Here is the package I received from Pam of Virginia Retro. How much fun is this to open the box and find a cute orange skeleton wrapped with some vintage crochet and tissue?! Thank you Pam. I adore everything you sent me.
With the Halloween theme, the color was orange. De-stash items included in the box of goodies. Such great vintage pieces.
Here is some more orange de-stash and I adore them all.
Along with the de-stash we are to create and include one card and one tag. These are adorable and just what I like. Nothing super scarey or gorey. Thank you very much Pam. Well done.
While I was working on my swap package I also created some items to swap one-on-one with my blogging friend Ana of Scrappy Pink Corner. Ana and I usually do at least one swap per year and this year we made it Halloween. I thought these orange and black scissors looked Halloween so I attached black polka dot grosgrain ribbon with some orange buttons. Very handy to hang around the neck while creating.
This bracelet will be fun for Ana to wear on her upcoming cruise.
These are some bubble wands I created and included in my swap packages. I really love the relaxing way blowing bubbles calms down even the most hectic of days. Sitting by the pond and blowing bubbles is where you may find me.
Last but not least I sent this to Linda of A Swap For All Seasons as a thank you for being a wonderful hostess for all of these monthly swaps. I do hope I surprised her. Fabulous Fun was had by all!!!
September has arrived and our weather continues to be Falling into Autumn. Leaves are turning and acorns are dropping.
I am happy to say I have completed my ribbon sorting and love how they are displayed for me to see and use. The colors are so inspiring as are the textures and sizes of ribbon. Of course I did have the odd ones that had to stay in a container. Thankfully it is much smaller and now resides in the sewing room. I see lots of ribbons being used in future projects.
Mr. C and I are very busy this month so I should have lots to share. I still haven't shared so much of our trip we took over the summer. I better get caught up.
May you be enjoying your days and creating something beautiful you love. Bliss to all...
