Ok, I started this post like 3 days ago! My life is chaos right now, ugh!  I’ve started a different shift and position at my job and it’s throwing life into a tailspin.  I’m such a creature of habit and I can’t get back into a routine.  I have done some crafting and I’ve spent a lot of time working in the yard.
Thank you all for the sweet comments and emails about the Spring Bunting Swap, I’m glad you all liked the finished products.  Several of you swappers included some generous gifts and supplies in your packages and they were greatly appreciated.  In fact, I had this great idea.  Since Carolyn’s bunting was lost in the mail, I thought I’d use those supplies to make her a bunting.  I felt so bad that she didn’t get anything in return for her work.  So I put your gifties to good use and added some of my own and made another 5 flags :)  It was fun and I had so much inspiration after seeing everyone’s work.  I mailed it to her last Friday so she should be getting it any day now.  I took pictures of it I swear! However, they have gone missing on my hard drive, or else I took pics without the card in the camera LOL.  Anyway, I hope she’ll share pictures when she gets it, then you can see your items put to use.  I’m so glad I made the decision to make her one too, because just two days after I sent it, her’s arrived!  It took over a month to cross the ocean and her package was really beat up, but the bunting is in perfect condition!  She told me to keep it for myself so I think I will hang it in my daughter’s room, the colors are perfect.
In other news, I’ve been working on some teacher gifts, I will take pictures when they are finished.   I also mailed off the May Blissful ATC to my partner Tina.  The theme was “Let’s go to the Movies” and I chose to make mine Moulin Rouge themed. 

I hope she likes it, we had discussed favorite movies and I didn’t end up using any of her suggestions.  This one just spoke to me :)  I think that about catches me up from my extended absence.  Hopefully I will be back on schedule here soon!
