Where Have I Been?

I have been working on a few scrappy things, but mostly playing online and working. I did set up a message board, Swap Addicts Anonymous. A board focused on swaps of all kinds, but also just a chatty place. It is a bit slow right now, but I hope it will pick up with more members. Please check it out and make yourself at home, even if you aren't a swapper!
I finally got this swap done, it was pretty labor intensive. This ATC was made for AMR/SCF's Let The Sunshine ATC Swap.
I used Basic Grey Urban Prairie pp, Bazzill cs for the back, Autumn Leaves Stamp, Technique Tuesday alpha stamps, and Yellow Stickles. I also used SU Scallop border punch, Fiskars Threading Water border punch, and 2 different sizes scalloped scissors.
These Christmas Inchies are for a swap over at Split Coast Stampers. Aren't they just adorable? I used Basic Grey Figgy Pudding, Wassail, and Mistletoe & Pear pp, and some Cosmo Cricket (unknown but is a Christmas line) pp, Bazzill cs, Studio G and Inkadinkado stamps, Stickles, chalk, rhinesones, brads, and chalking "poofs".
I also got the My Favorite Shoe swap back.
Split Coast's A-Z Food Swap....AWESOME!
LittleMissSparkle, the hostess of the coffee swap I did a while back send me a replacement for the one that was missing. I love it!
I got this Summer Themed ATC for AMR's July crop from grettasgranddaughter.
Scrappy Girl sent me her NSD ATC from May's AMR crop, a card, and a handmade bookmark.
A hostess gift from Emma, a card and this cute rhinetone cherry brad!
cpmemories sent me this adorable cupcake stamp set as a hostess gift, and it's BG!!
Scrappy Girl also sent me a RAK I earned for winning a challenge during the NSD AMR online crop in May.
On SAA, I am hosting a Kids Only ATC Swap. My nephew wanted to sign up and made this ATC. Everything was his idea, the only thing I did was cut the ATC, and show him how to stamp. He is 11 and really enjoyed making his ATCs.
I am still trying to get back into the groove, I am sorry if my blog has been disappointing lately. I have to do some layouts this weekend for challenges I have to do, plus, the AMR crop is this weekend! You really should check it out!

Hey girlie! You have really been getting good mail! Love your nephews ATC. I haven't been online much because I had to take Wild Child for a yucky dental procedure today (3 hours from our home.) She is fine and back into mischief.

I am having a giveaway to celebrate 500 posts...check it out and leave your 2 posts to enter!

That's some serious swapping! I am totally in love with that cherry brad! Cherries are my thing so much that I have a tattoo on my back of a pair of heart shaped cherries.
