Sewing Swap

Since I'm such a crap ass blogger...only two people wanted to swap with me and one of them is my sister (who only said she would, because she is my sister).  So I'll have to join a swap and I got the notice for this one.  There are still spots (hint to Terri and Wendy).   :)

I was looking at the calendar and thinking, "Holy crap" .....it has been almost two years since we arrived in Germany.  My shop has been shut down for that long.  No, I'm not re-opening anytime soon....I'm enjoying our time here in Germany.  My Sister and our Father have been hard at work getting their shop up and running.  They've had a few setbacks.....health issues, a butt load of travel, work and enjoying retirement.  The shop is fully stocked now...they have a little bit of everything....handmade, vintage and craft supplies.  If you could pop in and take a look around we would all appreciate it.  Thanks.

I Was A Busy Bee

Boy...the life of an army wife is crazy sometimes.  Right after my last post.....life got crazy and didn't slow down until Monday.  There was a potluck, a very special lunch, DFAC meals, a unit Holiday party, cookies to bake for soldiers, many visits to Christmas Markets (wee one's first one), a Coffee, an Open House, a Craft Day, visits to Staff Duty/CQs to drop off baked goods, Thanksgiving, Christmas. and New Year's fireworks.  Add to that two different work schedules that didn't always sync up and a way too long Christmas break.  I was busy...but it was a good busy.  I made ornaments for my Husband's Christmas tree and then they got moved over to Squadron...their tree was naked.  I made a garland to cover his naked tree.  I made Silver Bella houses for ornaments and as gifts.  It was nice making things again.

So I was thinking....because I'm so excited to be all happy and creative again (long, dry spell....sucked) I thought I would put out feelers.  How would some of you like to join a swap??  I was thinking of a charm swap......I haven't done one of those in a long time.  I was thinking a bee theme, maybe??  What do you think??  No more than 20 swappers.....I'll be lucky to get two people (due to the long drought of blog posts).  I thought I'd throw it out there and see if anybody is still out there and wants to create fun shit.  Happy New Year!

P.S.  Yes, I used that picture before...I needed one with a bee.  :)  I'm not perfect.
