It's threatening to storm out, and I needed a break from helping Firstborn with his laundry - yes, he moved out. More on that later...Michelle at Michelle's Little Piece of Heaven is having a craft swap. Count me in! I haven't been so lucky on these "swaps" in the past, but they are fun to do. Perfect day for it.
Some day I'll have a craft room. Until then, I haul everything out into the kitchen. I went through my scraps to find some beautiful color. My plan was to make my "swappee" (that's not a word...) a couple of book marks and a coaster for a mug of coffee or tea. I can't spend a bunch on this and you can tell I'm not a crafter. But it was fun! I even made a couple coasters for The Girl, who has been forgetting to use her Tervis tumbler.
I love the combo of these colors. Sort of antique. In fact, a couple of the prints are Civil War reproductions. The others are from some Pottery Barn napkins and scraps from various projects.
I put them together with some Taste of Austin and Taste of San Antonio coffees, and a Texas postcard. One of my favorite things is putting my feet up in the evenings with a good book and a glass of wine. Maybe she likes to do the same thing.
Hope Donna enjoys her little sussies!
