Snail mail will prevail!

Sunday, October 12, 2008

Every day, Christopher (who failed to blog yesterday, and is totally in trouble for it) comes into the house with at least 2 packages for me. He gets this look on his face, as if the world doesn't know he exists (yet, again I mention how he failed to shine in his Saturday morning blogger spotlight). Yesterday I brought in 3 or 4 packages from the mailbox, and announced "I think that's the last of the things from my stationery swap", as I tore into them. And after a big grin came to his face, he yells "Thank God!". Somebody swap something with Christopher please (?), hes really being a baby about it, hehe. The swap really was a success though. I put out an open call to swap handmade note cards, and y'all totally came through. So thank you to parallelbotany, persimmonsgal, sydneydesigns, ElegantSnobbery, poppyseedart, LaurieRyan, jessicajane, french panic, and sweetpetula (because I won a set of postcards off of her blog). If I forgot your name, its because I'm not very organized and rather than doing the swap through one user name, I did it through two, and my email. Just slap me in the face and I'll give you your proper credit like a good swapper. And if you don't see your cards pictured up at the top, (I apologize) its because I've probably already sent them out! I'm impatient and had to send the first bunch of them out immediately. I hope all of you enjoyed the cards that you recieved from me too, because I had a lot of fun putting them together and getting them sent out. I'm thinking about organizing a larger stationery swap this spring, that will involve a lot more card making and a lot more of you. What do you think?
