Yikes, I’ve done quite a few swaps in the last couple of months and am WAY behind in posting about them so here goes . . .
September . . . I participated in Sara’s Charmed Heart Swap. I had posted here about the heart I made for my secret partner and then I found out she was my secret partner! I can’t tell you how excited I was to find out that we had been paired. Robin’s heart is one of my most cherished swap pieces.
October . . . Miss Jodie suggested that I come up with a fall-themed swap so I created a fat book called Fall’in for Vintage Gloves. We had 8 participants and each were required to use a vintage glove on their page. I love how the books came together and how each girl’s page was so unique. Yes, that’s me at age 7. I asked each participant to send me a childhood photo so I could personalize each book.

November . . . I had come up with an idea for a Silver Bella swap but was not able to attend this year. I shared my idea with another Bella and she co-hosted it and represented me at this year’s event where the Vintage Bling Charm Swap was born. The bracelets were absolutely FabUlous and have now become popular at other upcoming events.
I’m on break for the holidays, but I’m hosting a FabUlous Vintage Pocket Pillow swap for Moulin Rouge next March and it’s gonna be here before you know it.
