Vintage Swap

Things are much less grim feeling. Refocused…
Yesterday, in particular, was a good day. We had some extra kids over for some extra craziness and we had a really fun time crafting paper bag puppets. What a simple & fun craft. what can’t you use to add a little character? Plus, then the girls performed a silly little puppet show from behind the couch. There was an awful lot of giggling involved!

And then I got a package, which is always exciting, but it’s even better when you don’t know what’s inside and opening it is like meeting a new friend. I used to send letters and packages to friends from camp all the time and it was SO exciting to check the mail & read a little about their lives. There’s just something so personal about a packages that’s obviously been handled with care. I hope my swap partner is as happy with her goodies as I am. Take a look!

doll cloths, cute hankies, play colander, adorable blue apron, carrot art, and a cookbook with lots of vintage-style goodies. THANKS JENNIFER!
the carrots have already settled into their new home comfortably. Yay for the vintage swap!

    Glad you hit a stride.
    It's funny, Tuesday was such a fun day for me and the boys…we went to a mommy playdate and had tons of fun…
    Then, Yesterday, I was so tired and unfocused..
    You want to know what we did?…
    Read books in bed, took a nap, and made mud pies…
    I guess we just need down days every once in a while…
    Today, i am feeling great again… brainstorming about different project, cleaning, and organizing everything in sight… Strange….
    Lots of love.. Love the vintage swap thing….what is that??
