Crafty Swap

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!

They look great. And everybody loves coffee. At least in this house they do.
