Wynter Blahs Swap! Come sign up!

I've decided to host a Wynter Blah's Swap. Outside, the snow is swirling & drifting, it's bitter cold, I just want to nap but my baby won't let me...LOL So I am creating a swap and I hope you'll join in the fun!


~We'll be swapping random things that you already own or have the supplies to make.
~Everyone will submit a list of their likes and dislikes, hobbies, etc.
~I don't want anyone to go out & buy something new for the swap, unless it would be supplies to go with the supplies you already own to make something with. (For example, if you decide to make some notecards, but don't have a certain color ink pad, it's fine to buy one).
~This swap does not have a particular'll be matched up with a swapper & will pull from the list they submit.
~Let's get those creative juices flowing!

To get things started & to give you an idea of things to list, I'll post my list here so that you can get a feel for the swap.

What about a price limit of $10-$15?

Michelle's list:

Hot chocolate mixes
cookies (someone send me some homemade cookies! LOL)
Prim/Seasonal note cards & stationery
Food scented candles
Christian fiction (say you have a Christian fiction book you've already read, pass it on in this swap!)
stickers (sheets or cut stickers...doesn't matter)
Bath stuff (anything but florals!)
Christian & country music (have a CD you bought & don't care for it? Pass it on here!)
Crystal Light drink mixes

Floral scented candles
Dark chocolate
Rock music
Don't need any boy-themed scrapbooking stuff

Writing letters
scrapbooking (esp. for baby girl)
making addy labels
shopping you get the idea!

Sign-up's will go until Sat. Jan. 16 & the swaps will need to be mailed by Jan. 30 WITH Delivery Confirmation number emailed to me by Jan. 31!

I'm baaack! lol

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year Celebration! Our holidays were nice but I'm so ready for the fresh start of the new year!

We moved! Our beautiful home on 5.5 acres sold in 12 DAYS. Seven weeks later, we closed on it and we had to be out on Christmas Day! We frantically searched for a new home to buy in Indianapolis (an hour from our old home) but it didn't work out. The first house we made an offer on...someone else's offer was accepted first. The second house we loved, we were scheduled to see it a second time and had plans to make an offer on it, but the morning of the showing, my hubby checked on Indiana's Sex Offender Registry and found out a convicted child molester lived 2 doors down from the house we wanted to buy!!!!!

SO....we are in a short term lease apartment. Having a terrible time adjusting...Ryleigh is 18 months old and the noise from the upstairs apartment causes her a lot of anxiety. We run 2 fans and a CD player constantly, but it's still a problem. Management is trying to help us though.

Ryleigh isn't sleeping much, which means we aren't either and that's a real problem! lol

Anyhoo...I hope to get back into the swing of things and start reading blogs and posting again. I miss everyone!

Our new temporary home! See the brick arch w/ the #'s on it? Our place is the bricked area to the right of the arch, on the first floor.

My nephew Nathan, niece Hannah & my daughter Ryleigh
We had this pic taken for my's her 3 grandchildren. =)

Silly face! LOL

Happy New Year!!
