Exciting times :) I just participated in my first swap –
B E A U T I F U L U S E – which was organized by Kelly over at "hoping for happy accidents". We were asked to send any three objects that were utilitarian, simple + beautiful. This swap was right up my alley. I had so much fun putting stuff together for my partner, Chakriya. She collects elephants and likes the colour violet so that gave me plenty to work with. I'm not sure if she reads my blog, so I'll wait to hear from her before I post what I sent. I'll definitely post what I receive.
I just happen to stumble upon Kelly's site and read about the swap... does anyone know how to find other swaps? Just curious for the future. Let me know!
I had fun with the packaging. Instead of using my Taylor Made designs packaging, I decided to make my own wrapping paper. I silkscreened some ribbon, using my trusty Gocco. Overall, I'm really pleased with how everything turned out :)
I am pretty swamped with work, the kids are on holiday + my in-laws are dropping by on Thursday. We haven't seen them since their trip to Norway to visit Neal's sister's family. The weather is going to be pretty crummy, so I decided to make homemade turkey chili with black beans + corn bread for lunch. yummy.
Can you believe it's already Thursday? Have a good one!
