Whichwitchami - I love that name! I did not get to organize or finish my swap that I needed to but there were more family things going on that needed my attention so I will get back to it! I know exactly what you mean about the scrapcrap! Ditto exactly on the words for my hubby saying the same thing but he goes further with it! He says his tools make him money! That my scrapcrap can open its own store, and one of these days he's going to rent a dumpster and throw all my scrapcrap in it! Nice!

I'm wishing everyone a great week to my secret sisters!
I'm still on vacation and will return at the end of the week.
I do have my phone and my iPad with me, so I am available although sometimes not on an immediate basis.

|Posted: 7/31/2012 6:08:43 PM|Hello ASecretSister! I think I made my wishlist public now.
Things are going well here. Yesterday was my daughter's 3rd birthday & we are having her princess party so it's going to be a busy week! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by, she's such a big girl now!
Soo... tell me a little about yourself.

Hello Maxsmomma!! I sure hope you are having a great week! I went shopping today, be "scared" be very very scared... NAW, it's all good! Just having a great day working on this swap for you!
Sounds exciting to have your house on a tour, that would be so much pressure for me!
Praying for you this week!

SecretAgentPea! I am having a busy week! Working around the house, trying to get "last minute" stuff done before school starts! Crazy, where did summer go? Anyway, I sent you a pmail with some stuff I was looking at, did you get a pmail from me? If not, I'll try it again. Please tell me something about yourself!

I just returned from a trip to Bed Bath and Beyond, how come you go in there for a wedding gift and come out with so much more? That is a fun store, but I am already for a wedding on Saturday. I love that they even wrap it up, it looks great. I have two more days to work than I am off for 10 days. My sister from Colorado is coming in with her kids, all grown up now. It is getting harder and harder to get them all together for a visit. Should be a fun week, with a big family reunion to end it on the 12th. I went out there last summer, and I will go again next for my nephew's wedding in Aug.
Have a great week,

|Posted: 7/31/2012 11:15:05 PM|Alisha- I checked out your wishlist earlier and I have some ideas brewing. Happy Birthday to your baby! Long gone are the days of my kids being that small. My oldest (son) will be 16 in a month, and my two younger ones (girlies) are 13 and 12. The girls would DIE if I tried to plan them a princess party now, but when they were little, all they ever wanted to be was a princess. LOL. Enjoy every day with your daughter, kids grow up SO fast.

it's been busy in my world, lots of inlaw stuff going on, but all good. People visiting, people leaving on trips, that kind of thing. We got to take a break last week though and spent an afternoon at the beach. I'm hoping do so again in the very near future, and do some fun touristy stuff while we're down there. I've been making time to work on crafts, catching up on scrapping, jewelry projects, and sewing.
|Posted: 8/1/2012 3:54:53 AM|Hi Michelle M!!!
Hope u r having a fun week so far...
I've been having such a great time shopping for u!!! I made a list of all your "likes" and some things I want to especially buy for you...and I keep it with me all the time. Now I am thinking of different ways to package it so it looks cute when u open the box!!!
Are u working on any specific projects right now? What are some things u plan to make during the rest of the summer? Do u enjoy making mini books?
Hope to hear from u soon...

|Posted: 8/1/2012 3:05:45 PM|Vanessa66,
it's your favorite (and only) Fall/Halloween Secret Sister Swap partner Swappie McSwapster! I've been offline on a swap box treasure hunt, looking for all kinds of neat stuff to send you. I'm waiting on a package with something special in it, so in the meantime, the next step is to journey out on a LSS shopping safari. The sacrifice I am making for the swap...
How are things with you now that August is here? Getting ready for back to school? Making plans to do fun Fall activities? Looking forward to the change in the weather?
One question: What do you like about Halloween? Are you a Spooky Sister? Into something more fun and less frightful? Any specific characters you enjoy? Themes? Do you like a more moody gothic style? Or are you less about the scary and more about the sparkle?
I hope this post finds you and your family all well and happy. Until my next update,
Your Secret Swap Sister; Swappie McSwapster!

Mykidsmomma - Your pinterest link does help as I've never seen that type of item. Not much halloween stuff is out yet, but I will be on the look out for this.
On a good side - your first scrapbook order came in. All my "hints" are here and you have nice taste. The stuff is fun!
How is your week going? I hope it's going fantastic!
|Posted: 8/1/2012 6:03:25 PM|Hello About_to_pea! I hope things are going well for you. I haven't seen you post so I hope all is okay.
I would love to know what your favorite fall/halloween activities are. Do you have any special traditions?
We love going to a local family owned pumpkin patch for all kinds of fun. My favorite thing is their Pumpkin Chocolate Chip bread!!!

|Posted: 8/3/2012 10:14:12 AM|Hello Swappie McSwapster:
Yay, you're back. So, what did you find on your swap box treasure hunt??? Inquiry minds wanna know LOL. I love you for your sacrifice you're making for this swap. I know about the sacrifices we make and it's hard, but we somehow muddle through it Can't want to see what your treasure hunt turns up for me. I know it will be awesome.
August so far is good. I will turn ?? this month, oh heck, why don't I just go ahead and say I'll be 25 (bahahahaha) and the kids will go back to school in four weeks so we're in the process of school shopping. And yes, I am so looking forward to cooler weather. It will stay hot, humid and miserable here through September and sometimes it's still hot in October minus the humidity. Fall is my favorite time of the year so I am looking forward to decorating.
What do I like about Halloween? I really like everything about it. I'm a spooky sister, more fun, less fright, not gothic but the more sparkle the better LOL. I'm a blingy witch Hope this helps.
Hope you and your family are well also and you've had a great summer.
Have a wonderful weekend, mine is going to be one of doing absolutely nothing!!!
Looking forward to your next update.

Hi secret swap sister.... :c)
I love anything Tim holtz... my fav. tea is cherry pomegranate, but I like orange as well... not fond of peach or the green teas. I'm not much into home decoration or candles, I like hands on crafts that I can make.
I have cricuts, pazzles, sizzix, and Fuse machines.
As for my cricut cartridge collection it's much easier to say what I don't have ... lol... Still missing the two Pooh carts, love all the new carts (anything in the past year) but haven't had a chance to buy any yet. I have most everything else... about 100+ in the library!! lol

Hey Danielle Happy Monday morning! How was your weekend? Did you get to make those kits for your upcoming crop? I try and do that but somehow always forget to put something in the kit or completely change my mind on what I had planned to do with a layout once I get to the crop! Oh well that just means I get to do a little shopping! I'm heading out to a local scrap store this week to do some shopping for us(oops I mean you). Wish I could enjoy looking at all the fall/halloween stuff out there but it has been just to darn hot for me to think about fall-and I love the fall it can't get here soon enough! Are you kids looking forward to going back to school? When do they start back? I haven't even begun to shop for school supplies, just trying to delay the inevitable a little longer!
Well I hope you had a fun weekend and I'll talk to you soon.
