My swap to Peta has arrived, and lots of things to get done in the next week.....


Well my swap to Peta has finally reached it's destination and hopefully it has all arrived safe and sound, for my something old I brought Peta a shabby little china plate, my something borrowed was a little Paris case from my stash, my something blue was some blue lace and a millinery flower and the piece de la resistance was the Something new which I had fun buying.....
I got Peta a cup and matching plate, a pink lingerie bag that has embroidery on the front, a couple of handkerchiefs ,a fabric image so she can craft something special, a little lace sachet holder and of course my old wedding photo.....
I really enjoyed this swap it was so much fun to go looking for items even though I wanted to keep most of it for myself lol...

Now I haven't been creating that much lately what with hubby away and me having to look after 7 kids on my own I find I'm not getting enough time to do much of anything, by night time when I normally craft I'm too knackered to do anything at all so the mojo is at a simmer at the moment......
And yes have to say miss having him home because guess who forgot to tell the boys to put the rubbish bins out yes it was me, forgot it was trash day the other day and of course went out for the day so going to have a trash overload now....
Things I want to and need to get done are these:

Make my noodle box for my sewing box swap
start creating something for my vintage vacation swap (got my thinking cap on)
Work on my tea party hats
Work on my item for the blogging society party next week I'm going to make a swap album have all of my photos of the swaps I've done this year so it will be nice to start working on that one...
Sort out some papers for Alicia so she can work on her camp album over the school holidays......

Now it's late Friday afternoon here down under and I have to say I'm really looking forward to this weekend I just want to it to be a relaxing one where I can catch up on things around the house and get some crafting done too.... Have a great weekend everyone
