Saturday Mail...Another Swap Package!!

Atc cards from Vivian and Awtem owl wand by Michele and feather owl from Lili...



Saturday's highlight was a delightful and pretty Halloween package from Michele W. at: http://www.lifeonthisgoodday.blogspot.com/ she was another swap partner.. Her paper doll was so sweet even the back was pretty![ guess she's addicted to making paper dolls..ahhh! my plan is working..many of the ladies in the 'swap' were new to the paper doll crafting and are now 'hooked'!]

Everything was is a crisp cellophane envelope, a very cool ATC card, candy and a Owl Wand with ribbons, guess I gotta 'Hoot' 3 times and make a wish..and a very retro silver owl necklace, hung that over a picture frame...some very pretty papers and was all wrapped with a crepe paper bow that matches my kitchen wallpaper perfectly, so need to do something with that!


So one swap partner left...and time to think up a new Swap for Nov. and yes, it includes making a 'Paper Doll' ...

On Nov. 1st a New Swap will be announced.. and think I will do it alittle differently, everyone will be posted on the blog, so you 'must have a blog' to join in and link to... well I hope everyone was happy with their Swaps and partners and somehow made a connection across the miles as tried to match up everyone with someone far from them. I had 5 partners [the perk of being host to the swap!Heehee!] the Netherlands, Hawaii, New York,Wisconsin and Florida..next time only 3..postage was a killer...gulp!

Your blog is always a wonderful sight to behold.. Looks like you had some wonderful swaps. A lot of great things and talented people involved. I love the paper dolls. I am sure hosting a swap is a lot of work. I am sorry I missed it.. Happy Halloween!
