Summer is Here!

School's out for summer!

Need I say more? I have two very happy kids. And one fearful Mother am I! :)

Will I survive it? It's only day one tomorrow and I am dreading the fights, the demands, the imminent boredom. Ah well... I am going to try to combat that - but alas, I am only one woman! Wish me luck!

So here's some pictures of swap stuff - finally! I have been a very bad blogger lately - but so much stuff has been going on, so I do have valid excuses!

The first pic is a lovely bunch of goodies that I received from a trim swap I did, and these came from Abby Powell Thompson of "Abbytrysagin" ( They were fabulous and I haven't used them yet but I will! Thank you Abby! I especially love the little tags she made which were extra goodies she sent that she didn't have to! Love it when people throw in extras.
The other picture is a bunch of swap items I sent for a "Pretty Bird" swap, which I had so much fun gathering and sending - but alas, the package I should have received from my swap partner never came. Oh well.... My rolodex card swap also got lost in the mail. Whaaaa! If I cry like a baby will the postman bring them??? HA.
I get enough in the mail, I don't know what I'm complaining about!

Trying to get back into the swing of things - and using swaps and other goals to get me creating again after a brief lull. Here's my "Americana themed tag book" that I'm doing for one swap - it's blank without pics or journaling so that I can give it to someone else to fill, and then the other thing is my June calendar. I can't believe it's June already and so hot! I'm already wiping the condensation off of my drinks as I sit at the computer and using the fan. It seems that summer has come so quickly.
