easter partners

Good Morning bloggy peeps!  Happy wednesday!  I think its supposed to be sort of warm out today.. like 30ish!  it snowed, sleeted, and rained yesterday.. its almost spring!  and almost easter!  
So I started my easter decorating.  hopefully will be finished by the weekend.    I have become fat, lazy and tired this winter.   everything seems to take me way longer then it used too! lol !    well seriously not funny.. I really need to make some healthy changes.... now.  but I just ate two brown sugar pop tarts and a glass of carnation instant breakfast.  In about an hour I'll be complaining that I have a tummy ache.   I am my own worst enemy some days  (Most days!)! YIKEs!
Anyways... about the easter basket swap...   I just want to post partners here.  I do think I contacted everyone by email or directly to their blogs last night.  but here is the list:

Kelly  and Catie

There were two others interested.  One I was totally unable to contact and one that does not have a blog.    If anyone else is interested I will hook you up with Anna, who does not blog, but would love to join in.  I feel horrible leaving anyone out, but for those of you that read blogs but dont have one, if youre wanting to join into swaps, you should start a blog.  Or if your active on facebook.. that works too in most cases.  We like to swap with people we can see and get to know through blogging.  Its fun to blog and its fun to go to a new blog and meet someone new and to get a little picture of where they live and what their life is like.  
And its hard to have a partner that you cant access on a blog.    ok.. 
with that said..
have fun.. create something awesome for your partner.  remember its a little basket swap, decorate or make a little basket and fill it with eastery  fun!
You know my rules .. make it special, make it extra cute, make it so you dont want to part with it. 
Think bunnies, chickies and lambs!  
and be ready to mail out by march 25th!
Oh!  and be sure to take pics of what you send and receive and be sure to post them on your blogs so we can all see .
thats all for now girls..  now its hi ho hi ho...
off to work I go!
happy wednesday!

Happy Wednesday! Getting closer to the weekend. Can't wait to see your Easter decorations. I've got lots of swap ideas swirling around in my head. Hugs!

Have a good day at work, Viv. I think I see some TUMS in your morning. lol

I am excited to see what the swap produces. It is too bad that you can't contact someone that wants to do it. Hope you have a great day- xo Diana

I am always missing these great swaps! One of these days I will arrive before the swap starts! Missed the Secret Santa Soiree at ColoradoLady this past 2014. Suzanne had house issues and was unable to host. I will check back to see what you are all up too! If I can get into my overstuffed garage I am going to pull out my Easter decorations and get busy. Two years ago I found a ton of great thrifty items at my local grocer for 50-75 percent off the original price! Easter is my favorite time of year, although bittersweet with the loss of my father on Good Friday 1985 and my unborn child Rachel on Good Friday 1987. But I love those Easter egg wreaths and small lambs and chicks etc. My late Aunt Ang made me some beautiful crocheted eggs that she did over the plastic eggs you buy at the dollar store. I treasure those because I have zero artistic talent for crochet or knitting or even quilting! Happy Hump Day and enjoy the remainderof your week!

Lori said...

Hi, Vivian! Send me details and maybe I could pair up with Anna? Happy Easter decorating!

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

I'm already crafting in my brain and will be at my table! :)

Stephanie said...

Sugar is evil! Why do we love it so? I will eat a vegetable today and dedicate it to you!

Holly Loves Art said...

Such pretty-ness! Just love springtime!

Dorothy Crutchfield said...

YaY! I'm already thinking of things to make for Deb!

E said...

This winter has been a challenge for even the "chipper" people in my life ugh another round headed our way but fear not I got new crafting supplies, a gallon of milk, peanut butter ... and oh yeah and a bucket of choc chip cookie dough ! XO E

Beth said...

I can't wait to see what everyone makes. I was hesitant to join this year because I wasn't sure what to make but if you need someone to fill in let me know. Happy Easter Swapping everyone!

I was sort of nervous when I signed up but now...I'm really getting excited. What to do, what to do is next!! Wow..I've gotta get started. in the world are you, Viv??? :)

P.S. I had a chocolate chip cookie, coffee laced heavy with sweet cream, and later an orange. I'm on a diet after all. :) Don't feel behind is stuck to this chair way too much and I need to lose at least 40 pounds and SOON. Fat Chance!

Lynn said...

Hi Vivian!
Thanks so much for hosting again. I contacted my new partner on her blog. I am dieting and I hate it LOL but I have got to get some of this weight off. Hopefully it will help with the knee pain and my mobility issues. I have lost 32 since Christmas but it is hard. I love sweets so giving them up has been so hard. I can have the sugar free jello pudding so that is not too bad. Take care and have a great weekend ahead!

Patti said...

Thanks Viv, for hosting. It will be a blast! Sugar drives me crazy unless I'm on a reeeeeeally low fat diet, like ketogenic. Then I don't crave it at all!

Sally Annie Magundy said...

Wish I could play along too but way too much going on over here WAH. Adore that you used your own pic in your darling bunny! TGIF!

Peps is making me fat and it's O so loaded with carcinogen. My winter of sloth is catching up to me as well. Spring save me from myself !!!!
