Christmas Bottle Swap Action....

Girls...I just want to say that this bottle swap has been more than fun...it has been heart warming.  Looking at the joy on your faces and the heart felt thanks to each other has brought tears of joy to my eyes.  You all are so thoughtful and have just gone out of your way to please someone that use to be a stranger and now you have a connection that will hopefully last a lifetime.  That's what it's all about...friendships.
Here is a link to Jennie's blog.  She shares her goodies that I sent to her.  Like I said in an earlier post, we had an odd amount of participants so I had two partners.  Go check her out: http://earthyscrap.blogspot.com/2010/11/blogger-award-and-bottle-swap-with.html.
Here is a video that Kathy made showing her goodies from Carol.  Enjoy!

Christmas Bottle Swap **NOW CLOSED**

Hi Everyone,

I am hosting my first bottle swap. I think it will be so fun. Especially around Christmas.

Here is how it's going to work:
1. Price limit is no less than $10 and no more than $15.
2. The size of the bottle needs to be a 1 liter bottle.
3. U.S. shipping addresses only (so sorry..out of country shipping would be too pricey).
4. I will close the swap on November 15 by 9am Eastern time or when we have 20 participants (whichever comes first).

Please send me your name, email, blog & shipping address and a list of your favorite things, colors, etc. to
ChristmasBottleSwap@yahoo.com so I can get you signed up.

If you go onto youtube.com and type in bottle swap, it will give you ideas on how to fill your bottle and how to ship it. Also, once I gather all the names and pair all of you up, I will be giving more direction.

I'm really excited about this and we'll try as hard as we can to make this run smooth and make it as fun as possible.

Take Care, Susan

My Fall DT Project

Good Morning Everyone,
My sweet friend Michelle over at totally-stamps.blogspot.com has asked me to be on her design team and of course I jumped on the offer. I'm so blessed to have such wonderful scrapbooking sisters in my life.

Michelle asked us to make a Fall/Thanksgiving themed project (cards, tags, layouts, etc.) and this is what I came up with.

We are having Thanksgiving at my house this year and this layout will be perfect for one of the MANY photos I will take. I hope you all enjoy. Have a wonderful day.

Susan
