Time to Swap!

This last week I've been trying to finish up the birthday presents I've been making for my cousin before I meet her in New York.  I'll have to post those pictures after her birthday so you'll have to wait until February for that ;-) Now many of you might know that my sister, Scrapbook and Crafter Extraordinaire has been doing craft swaps for quite a few years now.  I've never had the time or guts to sign up for one.  Don't ask me why but it seemed intimidating.  However I just signed up for my first one and my sister, being the amazing girl she is, signed up with me so I don't have to do it alone.  Though we are in different groups we will still each be sending each other one of what we made.  We have to put our screen name in each item so the person knows who made it and it was just easier to put in my business card, which got me thinking... I've completely slacked on my Etsy shop.  The shop and the blog address is on the cards!  SO I've decided I need to make a few projects to get on my shop so if anyone looks at it I'm not the most pathetic person alive.  I'll post pictures of these projects as I go and let you know when they are in the shop.  I'm also still doing the 52 Weeks art journal project.  I'm already behind of course but I got week two done and will post those pics here too.  Here's to more art and crafting...I'm thinking another swap...

My sister did a wine cork swap and sent me one!

  1. You got a nice picture of the cork keychain. Thanks for giving me a shout out. Love this weeks Art Journal pages. More subtle in colors to your previous ones but lovely.
