Awesome Swaps

Are you all enjoying your weekend? I've been keeping busy the past several days making mini magnetic 2012 calendars which I'll enclose with my Christmas cards. Hmmm, but I'm contemplating whether I should post them before or after I mail my Christmas cards. :-)

Are you like me.....love space and having things organized (though that's not always how things are)? Well, this morning, I attempted to put this huge container of Whey (a protein powder) away into my kitchen cabinet that my son left on the counter. Well, I definitely needed more space in the cabinet, and wouldn't you know......the next thing I knew, just about everything came out of the cabinets such as some unused pots and pans that were boxed, and I ended up doing a major reorganization. It wasn't on my "to do" list but it sure feels GOOD to have things organized. YAY!!!!!

I want to share pix of some totally awesome swaps I received recently. First up is a "watermelon" themed card, tag, and envelope from Grace who was my C.A.T.S. (Card and Tag Swap) partner for August. Don't you think they're "yummily" cute? Makes me wish I bought a watermelon at the market yesterday.

And she was sooooo generous and enclosed these awesome RAKS. Thanks Grace. :-)



Next up is a pretty card and matching tag from Denise who was my C.A.T.S. partner for this month. I have that flower stamp set from Stampin' Up too. I love how stamped them on various colored CS and accented them with pearls. You know, I've seen this punch at Ben Franklin several times but really wanted to see something created with it first. Now, I must definitely add it to my wish list. Pretty huh?


She also included a Happy Birthday cupcake clear stamp set. I was really thrilled because I sold my Hero Arts set at the last Island Scrapbooking garage sale then thought, hmmmm, maybe I should've hung on to it a bit longer. So this made my day. Thanks Denise. :-)



If you'd like to join in the fun, click here to see the deets on Joy's blog. Thru the end of September, you can sign up for October, November, and December.



Lastly, Shirl was my Secret Sister for September coordinated by Kris. She sent me a checkbook cover and matching tag. Super sweet!!!




I love the mini stamp sets she so generously included too. Check them out.....aren't they cool?



Thank you Shirl. :-) If you'd like to sign up for this fun swap, click here to see the deets on Kris' blog.




Hope to get some major craft production accomplished today. Crossing my fingers.



Thank you for stopping by and hope you all HAVE A SCRAP HAPPY DAY!!!



Hugs,



Karen
