Hi there to all my blog friends. I know it is just the middle of August, and I know you are all busy with other swaps, giveaways and just keeping up with your blog, but I would love to host another little swap for the fall. Why am I doing it? Well, it is just that I am tired of the heat, and yes, I am rushing the fall season, because it is truly my favorite of all the seasons. I live where it is very hot hot, and by golly I am already dreaming of Halloween and Thanksgiving cause I know it is wonderful cool weather then.
Therefore, I am introducing a brand new swap. We will call it the Fall Intrigues Basket Swap. And the only rules are that it needs to be sent in a basket. Let's keep it simple and just put anything into the basket that you wish that has to do with fall. And let's put it all into the basket! So be creative. This is not a vintage persay swap, but you could certainly put in vintage any thing, scrapbook supplies, trinkets, treasures, candy, recipes, or whatever you wish, as long as it has to do with Fall.
When I think of Autumn, I think of bushel baskets of peaches or apples. I think of the changes in the leaves, my granchildren treak-or-treating and I will get plenty of photos of that to scrapbook,gathering of family and being thankful for all of that, and certainly new recipes to try and looking forward to Christmas time. So be creative! Just comment on this post, Email me at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org and put the words fall basket swap in the subject line, and include your NAME MAILING ADDRESS EMAIL ADDRESS BLOG LINK (most important) If you don't have a blog that is Okay, but it is always helpful getting to know your partner through their blog. Make sure you let me know first through this post. Then I will be checking my emial for you. You will have until September 8th to let me know. I will give the ship date to you all later.
One more thing, could I ask a small favor? Could you save as. . the collage picture above and post it on your blog somewhere, to advertise this swap. Thanks a bunch!!!!!
I am a Mother of 8, grandmother of almost 27 wonderful little people. Married to a wonderful man for 38 years. I am a published scrapbooker, have decorated wedding cakes, made wedding dresses, had a wedding business, taught baton twirling lessons to girls for almost 40 years, and love to decorate my home inexpensively. I have always been a 'make-due' sort of person. I love dishes, teacups, teapots, and have to be creating something everyday. I love to listen to beautiful uplifting music and watch Masterpiece Theatre and Jane Austen movies while I scrap, craft or sew. I have become addicted to quilting, and dream about quilt blocks now. I am still working on getting better at this art form. I believe that Creating things with your hands is a good outlet and keeps your mind alert, and has a way of helping one lose all the cares of the day and world, right in my own little studio. Therefore I will never become a digital scrapbooker. I think that those who do digital turn out some beautiful pieces of art and lovely layouts, but for me I need to cut and paste by hand!
