Jennifer, I have a question. Are you going to tell us the address of our partners? Do we pm our partners? How is this done? Sorry for the questions? I'm sure they're posted somewhere, I just can't seem to find it. (Probably on the first page, right?)

No worries! This has been a learning experience for me!! If you can PM your partner, that would be great!

I must apologize for being MIA!!! I left a comment way back on 1/25! I then forgot to add to my favorite topics

Tonight I received a PM from my partner...at first I was confused and then went searching for the swap!! I have no idea how it happened that I totally forgot about this swap or that I didn't even remember that I had signed up for it!!

But no worries...I AM SO IN!! And my partner will love the Mini I make her...I just know it!!!

So from now on I will be checking in regularly and I also will try to catch up as well.

So sorry for being MIA!!

i didn't even realize we had partners already... i just noticed yesterday. I've been sick and having car troubles and working a lot, so i think i missed a few things. Working on my album though, and I am really happy with how it is turning out.

Oh, I got my album from the Pinkster. It is absolutely beautiful and I look forward to adding photos to it. It is so romantic. Mariposa is one of my favorite paper selection. I'll have mine to her by next week, almost done, just need to work on some tags. and decorate the front cover.

Yesterday was DH's and my 8th anniversary and we celebrated today - all day. Much fun. We went to breakfast, lunch, scrapbook shopping, Home Depot shopping and dinner. It was also my oldest son's 41st birthday (he's the one who lives with us.)

We all seem to lose our mojo at one time or another. I just completed a project for another swap and I really hate my work! I'm using colors and prints that I don't normally use and I think it looks terrible! Since I don't like it, I keep adding stuff to it and making it look worse :). I guess we all have "those projects".....

Hi All...

I am so sorry that I have been away. I was hospitalized as I have cancer and acquired a virus from my nephew. It has taken me so long to recover but I am FIGHTING!!! My Mini is all finished and I just have to post pictures!!! I hope to do that tomorrow!!!! Then I will be sending it off to you Ausra on Tuesday...Please just PM me your address so that I am certain to have it!!!!

Ausra...I have NOT received your album but I am certain it is on it's way and will arrive in the next couple of days!!! I will let you know just as soon as it is in my hands!

No worries about ME bailing at ALL...I have NEVER bailed on a single swap...even though I am in a fierce battle!!!

So tomorrow I will be posting your pics Ausra!!!! And remember ladies let's try to be positive March 30th is still 12 days away. I wouldn't want anyone's feelings hurt thinking that you all don't believe in them. There are times that we all have busy, hectic, or troubling lives and a little love and support goes a long way!!!!

Until tomorrow...

Completed my very first mini album and it is on it's way to Darlene. Mailed it yesterday and the postal worker said you should get it on Wednesday, which is tomorrow.

The album is far from perfect but I did try my best.
I hope you like it Darlene....

i got a creative bug last night. So I got the spine done, the 2 pages that needed finished up. Still need to do the front page but its all cut up and laid out, add the ribbon for gathering and walll-A .... Im going to og through maybe emboss something here and there but then its done. It will get out by Tuesday at the latest.

As ive said all along, its not my best work in creativity. But ive spent alot of time binding it, and that type of thing. I just learned a new way to bind called accordion and oh its sooooo cute!! Next book I do Im going to use that

Pal, hows my book coming? Anyway I can get a sneak peek of what it looks like??
