Three items of business!

To all of you out there, who might have tried to comment here and could not, I have fixed the problem.  And to all of you who have decided to participate in my Fall Intrigues Basket Swap, the deadline for notifying me will be SEPT. 8th and the shipping date to your partner will be Oct. 7th.  This should give us all plenty of time to think about and collect items for our baskets.  Little bit of a tip:  Keep in light weight! 

Some ideas for your baskets:

1.  candy corn or chocolate is always good!
2.  scrapbook embellishments (this could cover a lot)
3.  halloween paper or
4.  Salt and pepper shakers
5.  Recipes
6.  potpouri or scentsy wax
7.  small scented candles
8.  doilies or other small vintage pieces.
9.  buttons
10. patterns or iron ons
Just some ideas for you.
