While Truman was away I got to see my cousins who came for a day to attend the University of Arizona kicking camp. I loved having them in my hometown if only for a day. I also am not so secretly hoping that Chandler is recruited by and then attends my most fantastic UofA :-) If it's good enough for Bruschi and Gronk it has to be great, right?!
Also while the hubby was away I was able to craft my heart out! I have signed up for probably too many swaps considering the retreat is in just a couple months and I really want to focus on prepping for that. I received the Winter in July theme pocket letter from my swap sister and it was so pretty! I finished the August pocket letter for my swap partner and have to say it's one of my favorites because I LOVED the theme. I also did a set of vintage style ATCs and fantasy themed ATCs. Then I made some paper beads, 3X5 tags and a vintage homemade embellishment! I still have one more months pocket letter to do for a swap and maybe a set of pockets for another swap (if that goes through) but I'm closer to being able to start prepping for the retreat in October! Oh and in the middle of that crafting I decided to make a special bookmark to send to a friend in her birthday card. I'll share photos below and I'm going to make you wait a few days for the pictures of the pocket letter swap my sister and I did. Enjoy!
