just thinking about swaps

I had nothing to put on this tree at the moment.. so I hung the miniature bear "of the month" set that I made years ago. I had them stuck in a cupboard where I couldnt see them. This works for now. cute arent they?
And it got me thinking, the empty tree that is. That I should host a patriotic ornie swap! so I think I will. trying to decide just how I want to do it. I guess first I want to see if theres anyone interested. I'm going to keep it very small.

The other thing Ive been thinking about for months and months.. is a dollhouse tag swap. this could be so fun.. but again.. i want to see if anyones interested. another small swap.. maybe 10 girls. that way were not all making 20 tags. OK.. I really need to get ready for work.. I have to find something to wear... I have nothing!! (how many times do we say that in our lifetime I wonder.. "I dont have anythign to wear!!") I know I say it all the time with a closet full of clothes!

God blessed us with nice weather the last few days.. I am sooo grateful.. though I feel soooo terrible for all the people suffering the aftermath of the tornado in joplin mo. My sister lives in MO. but in st louis. I cant begin to imagine what these people are going through. Pray for them. the loss and destruction must be so devastating .

well, on that sad note.. I must move on.. and get my self in gear.

I hope the sun is shinning where you are today!!

see yas later!

The weather has certainly been scary. I've been having to filter the news from Josie because it's so devastating. Prayers to the poor town of Joplin.

I would love to participate in a patriotic ornament swap. As you can imagine, I decorate our sunroom tree with all kinds of patriotic items. Looking forward to more details.

Hi, Vivian!
Darling bears!!! Is that needlepoint? Wow!
Would LOVE to join the doll house tag swap if not due before late June - in a few right now so have to watch my deadlines:) Also have a couple of big church projects going at the moment.

Hey Viv! Depending on what kind of ornie you'd want, I might be able to join your patriotic swappage!

I would love to do the patriotic swap. Can you believe that I have never done a swap before? You'll have to help me through the process! I love your monthly bears. And your pink bike is so cute.

Cute bears Vivian!

LOL, I never have anything to wear, either. Even though our walk in wardrobe has only my clothes. Hubby's have been relegated to the play room wardrobe, hehehe!

Hey Viv, I'm catching up on blog posts today and I just came across your's where you showed your work area. It looks great, you should submit it to that magazine "Where Women Create". Take care and have a great week.

Hi Viv,
I am so touched. You barely know me, and yet you are going out of your way to look out for me. Thank you so much.
Now I'll tell you what happened. I am SO EMBARRASSED! I found a cute blog and posted a comment on the blog. I think I was just telling them I liked the blog and was going to follow, can't even remember, but somehow, DON'T ASK HOW!! somehow I must have clicked on something and posted it. I was shutting down the computer and took one last look at my blog to see if anyone else commented, and on my dashboard page it showed I posted a new comment. I almost fell off my chair. It was my comment that I had posted to another blog. Nothing wrong with the comment, just not something I wanted to have as my first or should I say next post! I immediately deleted it, but felt so embarrassed. I think everyone is going to think I am an idiot. I really am not sure how I did it, but I did! I can promise you I will be much more careful from here on in. I am just now working on the project for my next post. I am having such a hard time deciding which thing, so I am making up three different things, then I'll take pics and decide. I hope you like it!!
Thank you so much for being such a good friend. Like the song says "You find out who your friends are" and obviously you are one of mine! I'm so lucky!

So sad to see parts of Joplin just leveled. It could happen to any of us at any time, I guess.

Just another reason to savor every day!
