Well, I pray you all had an awesome and safe 4th of July weekend. As for me and my family, we had a typical quiet weekend. Today actually was the busies, with groceries and Michael's (20% everything) and I also went to the post office to mail out my latest swaps. The first swap was for A Lil Scrap of Heaven, I participated in Kimberly's Image Tag Swap, my first swap of this kind, had soooo much fun with it. You just stamp ten tags with your first image and ten more with your second image, put them in a plastic baggie, and your done...so easy and fun. My second swap from A Lil Scrap of Heaven was Cynthia's Flower Swap, this was also my first time doing a flower swap, I was nervous because, even though this flower is made with your personal taste, you want to make sure you also consider other peoples. Well, anyways, these flowers took me a few days to complete, but I love them. My third and final swap mailed out was for My Scrap Room, hosted by Gina/Scrapinology, this was a one on one Junque Journal Swap. I received my partners journal within 10 day of the partner's name posted, so I was in a time crunch, even though I still had plenty of time to mail out, I wanted to do it as soon as possible, I pray my partner will like it, based on the one she sent me, this was more of a writing journal, but I did embellish each page by using my homemade glimmer spray. I did my best with what I had, I didn't purchase anything for it, as I understood it a Junque Journal allows you to use those old scraps of papers you have, maybe some mismatched trims and stickers, old chipboard pieces that you don't necessary would use otherwise in other projects....everything and anything goes, I love that concept, I definitely will be making another full size one for myself.
Wow I think this is the longest post ever !!! I hope I didn't loose anyone, Tee Hee.
Well let me let you go to your next blog, enjoy the coming week, may it be blessed by the Lord's hand.
