Coming Up For Air

I've been busy... very busy!. It's so nice to be able to take a little break and share some things with you.






Shannon's swap was really fun to participate in, my partner was Linda. And how generous she is!. Look at all the pretty and fun things she sent me, even the kids got some goodies from her. Thank you so much, Linda.







And for the kids:



My kids loved everything, Linda. Those koalas are just too cute!



And these are the parasol items I sent her:


This parasol is double-sided, so all she has to do is turn it over for a different look!




And a wall hanging, isn't this just darling! ( I know, self praise stinks!! lol)






Like I mentioned on a previous post, I think these are the prettiest items I've created so far. i hope Linda enjoys them for a very long time!
I also sent her gift wrap from the Simply Shabby Chic line, and a pearl beaded "L". I didn't take pictures of those.


*****************************


June 19th was the last day of school. You could hear the excited screaming all the way to the moon!



Ah, those school days!



I wish all kids and parents a very happy and safe Summer vacation!



In The Pool



I made two last banners for Jeremy's teacher:






They look a lot nicer in real life!. These were my way of thanking his teacher for a wonderful 2nd grade experience! (If you'd like to see the other banners, they're in my Flickr).

This is it for now, time to get busy again. It's all for a good cause!

Big hugs to all!
