I was peeking at some of my favorite blogs and I saw that Melissa had made an offer to do a Valentine's Day Swap with others.. I was too late to get in, so I thought I'd ask you, some of my blogger friends, if you are interested in a Valentine's Day Swap.. My birthday is also 20th, (as I mentioned in my last post) and it is always so much fun to get treasures in the mail. :) I can swap NH goodies (Maple candy appeal to anyone?), crafty supplies, pretty sparklies or it could be a surprise gift-ette. Whatever you would like. I could only do a few, perhaps two or three? OR.. if more people are interested then I might be able to figure out a 2 for 2 swap, (send in two bundles of love, get two bundles of love..) Just leave me a comment, or if you would like, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some ideas.. a handmade craft item from your local area.. (we have wonderful locals who make handmade soaps, chocolates (always a perfect choice!), etc..
Crafty art bits that you no longer use and would like to 'swap' them for someone else's goodies.. (such as paper, ephemera, trims, etc..)
Perhaps a 'Tea Party' idea.. maybe a small teacup from a secondhand store filled with tea, natural sugar, and/or a small hand towel..
Most of these ideas can be kept to a few dollars with a little creativity and you'd be getting a similiar 'gift' back from yours truely!
I'll work out the details if anyone is interested.. :) I do have lots goodies looking for wonderful homes, so please let me know!
I hope everyone is enjoying their January.. how are resolutions coming along? For me, I am trying to stretch every evening once the children are in bed to help me sleep better and release some of the tension of the day. I was able to get all of my business and craft supplies up to the bedroom on the third floor yesterday. It took atleast 25 trips of 'down a set of stairs from the garage' and 'up two flights' to the third floor.. but I did it! My legs are on fire today, but I guess I hit two birds with one stone. Moved everything and I got some great exercise at the same time. It also tuckered up my two year old, because she climbed those flights of stairs almost as many times as I did.
The sun is shining and if you have been watching the news, the NH Primary is today, so I am off to vote and take Baby A to the doctors for her 6 month checkup. Z is going to be NINE tomorrow!! My Baby Boy is NINE years old!! Good grief.. where in the !@!@*! did the last nine years go?
