Sending Swaps and Q&A

I finally got my official swaps sent out & thought I'd share some quick pics. I love how these bird boxes came out for The Speckled Egg's Petite Inspiration Box Swap. It was actually a little hard to send them all away. I might have to make one to keep. When I get all my boxes I will share pictures of the goodness with you.

These were the tags I made for the tag swap hosted by Karla's Cottage. I call this On the Wings of Love. I like how it turned out but I wish I had taken about 1 more day to play with it. I actually like the way I packaged it better than the actual tag! How crazy is that? I just love a pretty package.

Lately I have gotten quite a few comments with questions and I have not been the best about answering them. I was inspired by Kasey at Lola B Boutique who hosted a Q&A, to do one of my own. So ask away. Whatever burning question you might have for me that I have rudely ignored in the past or something you always wondered. Silly or serious, I care not. I will post the answers on Monday.


  1. Your little boxes are super sweet. I missed participating in this swap...just a day late, bummer, because everyone's little boxes look totally adorable!
