Yes.... Seriously.

Another Swap!!! :D

This one is being put together by Sarah, the sweetheart of My So Called Junky Life. She makes the most gorgeous jewelry, so be sure to check out her blog and Etsy page!

Please click on the image above if you'd like to join!!

I have finally started on my P&P swaps! Well, at least I know what I'm going to make up... Now I just have to get all the pieces together. No matter how many supplies I seem to have, I never have quite the right thing to complete my projects!! This time, I had to order more little pastel posies- from Andrea at Popalicioustoo! She just sent me something on Monday... I feel bad for making her go to the post office again!! (like I'm her only customer... I'm sure she has to go all the time!! She should just make the mailman pick everything up at her house! Well- maybe she does!)

And my gosh, have you seen the new Primas??? They are just gorgeous!! Michelle, from A Million Memories, just sent out an email the other day with all the new ones she stocked her store with.... I really need to win the lottery!! Ok, so first would be pay off my mom's house and car, plan a wedding, then figure out where to move and buy a house... maybe a nice vacation... and then Crafting supplies shopping spree!! lol :) haha- maybe not in that order! Oh, dreams...!

Also- DO NOT MISS your chance to win this gorgeous gorgeous bedding set!!!!

If you win and don't want it- I do!!! lol :) The Creative Connection has a brand new blog and their first giveaway is of this gorgeous blue Summer Sky comforter set, complete with the comforter, shams, bedskirt, and 3 decorative pillows!! I am loving just looking at this :)

I have also started in on my first swap that's due- Rhea's Easter Basket Swap. So far, my cups are painted. Lol- I'm hoping tomorrow I can finish them up, and then I just need to find 3 more things for each of my partners. I always wonder about making something for swaps- instead of buying things... I worry that my partners might not like what I make them- we don't always have the same styles... and I think that at least with embellishing supplies like glitter and ribbons and things, they'll be able to use them to make something they like... Well, I guess the point of making something for someone is so they don't have to do it themselves. :) Ok, well I will think on that a little more.

I gotta say- I am so glad this week is over... Even though it was a good week. (I mean work week.) I am really slacking on writing my Master's project... I think it's because I feel like I should move on, get a better high paying job after I get my Master's- after all, isn't that why I'm paying all this money for school?? But I feel like I'm not ready to go... so I'm stalling. Well, I think my advisor is ready to kick my butt into gear- so I'm glad that the week is over so I can just deal with it next week!! lol :) Did I mention I am a huge procrastinator?? :)

Thank you for stopping by to visit!! If I don't post between now and then, I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Julie Ann,

I LOVE the comforter set!! Oh ma gosh, it is gorgeous! I may just have to outright buy one. Haha!

Your swap sounds intriguing. I've got a swap going on myself, we are doing a Marie Antoinette matchbox swap. Fun!

Be gentle with yourself on writing your Master's Piece. (tee hee ;) Lil play on words there. I couldn't resist. I have found that everything gets done in its own time.

Enjoy the weekend! :)

i can not imagine you as a procrastinator! What with all of your projects... unless that is a decoy.. OH maybe you are a perfectionist?
WELL , I would say that you are a VERY GIVING PERSON and you must be great fun for your friends! It is a pleasure and honor to call you a friend via the blogging world :)

With Kindness,
ps.s i am going to sign up for that give away bedding!!! even though I just made a duvet cover for our bed! Like you said, I can always give it to you!

Wow, great list of dreams! I'm with you on that procrastination thingy, I'm the same way. I mentally list the things I know I'm procrastinating on and I rotate through the list giving a little attention/action to each one. Eventually you work your way through the piece that's causing the procrastination and soon they all get done.

That bedding set is gorgeous, I so hope YOU win it!!!
Have a beautiful weekend!! WOW, your masters project, what an amazing accomplishment that will be!! You must be so proud :)
