Wow! I can tell that the school year has started because it has been 12 days since my last post... after a full day of dealing with Kindergarten and Special Ed children, my brain and body are totally exhausted when I get home. Most days, I have neither the energy nor the inspiration to create much of anything. If, by chance, I do feel a bit of a creative burst, I immediately head to the Sunshine Room... but quite frankly, most times my projects get put aside because I hit a mental creative block.
The good news is that this exhaustion only last a few weeks; until I get back in the full swing of things and life goes back to "normal." At times I will get quite anxious when I glance at my swap logbook and realize how many due dates are creeping up... let's see... between now and October 31st I have fifteen swaps; most of them requiring multiple items. Yikes!
Halloween season will mark my 2nd anniversary of swappping... I've come a long way from my very first swap; worrying about every detail, was it good enough, would she like it, did I include enough "extra" goodies, etc... Oh wait! Those are all the same things I STILL think about every time! lol Seriously though, I absolutely love my swaps and all the creativity that changes hands. My creative and artistic horizons have greatly expanded during the past two years and I can't imagine my life without swaps.
Okay, enough of that.
Time to share some wonderful art that has recently reached my doorstep.
This is the autumn-themed tag she made for me...
...she is the most lovely autumn fairy... with gorgeous colors.
(Note the little fall leaf she's holding?)
I also received this sweet little fairy book ... along with some delicious fall tea and the loveliest of pink stationery.
...and this is the tag I sent Karla. It is titled "leaves a-tumbling."
Remember the fairy mermaid wand swap I posted about here? Well, this is the fairy wand I received today from my swap partner, Susan.
She also made this divine tag...
I have lots of other photos to share with you shortly... just need to get organized and caught up (2 more out the door by Friday).
Hope you are having a wonderful week! ,,,,
