A Little of This and A Little of That


How do you start a blog post when you haven't posted in almost a year?

I have been creating; not as much as I was or as frequently but some here and there. I really wanted to share with you a few swaps that I've recently finished.

First, I'm gathering up items for this swap and if you love shabby and vintage, you should check it out!

The first one was an Altered Matchbox swap hosted by Vintage Dragonfly. The theme was Things with Wings and was so much fun to put together. I created this little treasure for Lorraine at Over the Rainebeau.

I knew Lorraine liked aqua and pink and all sorts of things with wings. I spied that little birdie one day and decided to just focus on birds. Although I had the hardest time getting the bird to stay on the nest! And the little matchbox was filled with all kinds of goodies!

JoAnne, the swap hostess, sent a magical box to me!
It's so darling and I love it! She decorated the outside with tons of embellishments and has that over the top look that I love (but never seem to be able to actually do). So much inspiration packed into a little box. She also sent me this gorgeous tag:

The next swap was a seaside theme and I opted not to participate this round. But I have seen some of the photos in the Flickr group and they are beautiful! If you are interested in a swap like this, check it out - she'll post the next theme soon.
