April Peach Swap...
I joined A Swap For All Seasons and participated in the April Peach Swap. This is an extra fun swap because Linda our wonderful leader compiles the list each month of who wants to join in the fun. The actual swap is not with the same person. I send to one person and an entirely different person sends to me. How fun is this! Thank you Linda.
Here are the workings of gathering my de-stash (part of the swap) to send along. I did not take detailed photos of the package as I am certain my recipient will share what she received. Hopefully I did okay. This is only my second time to participate and I am still learning from what others post.
This is the package I received. It came from Debbie of Kitten Creates blog. Click on her link to see what she is up to. So far I adore the packaging. And as I am opening it Mr. C does not understand why I keep saying, "Wow, Wow, Wow!" I feel like a very lucky girl!
Debbie really spoiled me with each and every treasure she included. Her attention to detail and packaging is amazing. I absolutely adore each and every item. Thank you so very much Debbie.
As I have also shared I am participating in National Letter Writing Month in April. Today I hand wrote and mailed 19 postcards. They depict California and I sent them to participants in other states. This is only the second day and I have mailed 32 pieces of mail to 22 different states. I also must get busy with mail for Italy, the UK and lots of Canada's. Follow us on Lindsay's blog to see the fun. Lindsay is our wonderful Cheerleader and keeps us on track. How could this not be fun. When it becomes exhausting or stressful I merely take a break and do other things...like laundry or cleaning or cooking...Oh let me get back to NLWM instead! My desk is a disaster and it drives Mr. C crazy for its messiness however I feel it is organized and ready to write or color or mail something at any moment. For me it is Creative Bliss!
Our snow continued on April Fool. Then some more rain and now sunshine. The snow is melting. It got to a high of 48 degrees F today. I prefer 80's myself. Time to get busy...the days are rolling downhill very quickly. What are you creating? What would you like to be creating? If not now...when? That is my mantra. It reminds me to stop and enjoy and be happy. As Pharrell Williams sings, "Happy, Clap Along".

Snowing here! I think I need to try and get some letters written myself this month. I did find a prepaid postcard at the local PO and because I knew the gal's address I wrote it out and mailed it then and there. One down and about 30 to go! ;)ReplyDelete
