Bits and Pieces Swap

Hello everyone - What a crazy week I've had. Today we had people over all day - celebrating my son and my nephew's birthdays. It was lots of fun and we did a lot of chatting. Yesterday I went on an all-day field trip to the coast to explore tide pools. Very fun but exhausting with lots of second and first-graders! I am so looking forward to summer so I can do absolutely nothing! But I had to just log on now and post some pictures of a super fun swap I did, called the "Bits and Pieces Swap." It was hosted by my dear friend Joyce, and I'd do anything for her! :) She matched me up with a partner named, Jo and below you can see the wonderful art board she sent me. Isn't it awesome! I told her that I loved birds and bird watching and she designed this for me.
As you can see I've already hung it up in my studio. Every time my daughter walks by she touches the little owl pendant! She loves it too!
Here is the one I made for Jo, below. She said that she liked dogs and flowers. I used vintage dog images that I thought were so pretty! I also got a little carried away with the glitter!....
Thank you Jo and Joyce for this fun opportunity. :) Also - want to give a shout out to my son who is turning the big FOURTEEN this week! He is wonderful and makes me proud. Growing up before my eyes and over six feet tall - I am blessed. :) Have a great week everyone! :)
