Springtime in Paris ATCs...
Not only do I love Springtime and I love Paris, I also love Kim of ArtJoyStuff blog and her wonderful ATC swaps. Kim is always so organized and on time. Her participants are always very clever and artistic and follow through on their participation commitments. A win-win for certain.
This is the style ATC I created for swapping.
I always send along four so Kim can have one as well as the three for three swaps. I adore that little Parisian Eiffel Tower charm that I included on my ATCs and on the packaging.
I received this lovely ATC and packaging from Sylvia of littletreasuresylvia.blogspot.com which I cannot link for some unknown computer reason. Thank you Sylvia for this beautiful ATC gift.
This lovely ATC is from Liz and came from across the pond. Visit her blog lululizinlalaland.blogspot.com to see her beautiful sharings. Thank you Liz for your gorgeous ATC.
And this time I actually received one of Kim's stunning ATCs. I love the entire ATC especially the Parisian Eiffel Tower charm and butterfly. So Pretty in its Marie Antoinette style. Thank you Kim for treating me so well.
And part of the JOY of participating in Kim's ATC swaps is that she always adds an amazing gift of her own creation. This is an altered paper clip and it is ever so Tres Chic. I am seriously in love with this and have been wanting to create some altered paper clips for a while now. Here is my inspiration and I am truly smitten. Thank you so very much Kim for your gifts and your friendship through blogging and swapping Creative Bliss. I am swooning!
Our weather had a few lovely Spring days and the grounds were drying nicely. We called our annual property clean up crew to be here Monday. What happened? It rained all of Sunday night and we had to cancel the crew...again! I think this is the fourth time. We are still grateful for the rain however it is playing havoc with landscaping and window cleaning crews.
Alas...no visitors. I realize it only takes one buyer however we cannot get 1 out of zero!!! Come on buyer...PLEASE! I am not above begging. Each of the potential homes we could buy in St. George are sold quickly there. And the prices continue to climb. Here we are stagnated and waiting...
I shall continue to keep cleaning and pimping the house inside...just in case anyone wants to come visit. However you will find me in my studio making wonderful messes so I can be creative and not lose my mind. Today I shall be cutting fabrics. I will share my project soon I hope.
Springtime Bliss to each of you lovelies...
