Where have i been?

Sorry for not posting in a few days, i've been in my studio busy finishing up my goodies for the easter swap i am in with Heather Bluhm at http://www.boobyfish.blogspot.com/. there are 11 of us in the Gold group, so we make 11 gifts (easter themed) and send them to Heather who will sort them into 11 piles and then send each participant a box containing 11 different gifts. Then we will open our gifts starting 11 days before Easter. My gift is to be opened on Day 6. I had a great time figuring out what i wanted to make and then actually sitting down and making them. i am the early bird on this one as i've got lots of projects and retreats coming up, so i have to make the most of my time. The biggest thing going on being the 52 person valentine charm swap that i am hostessing with The Charmsters group. the deadline is fast approaching and slowly bags of charms have been trickling in. i will do the same thing once all the bags have arrived - sort and divide into 52 different piles! yikes - that doesn't sound like fun only because where am i going to find room to make 52 piles! lol.

here are some sneak peeks at what i made for the easter swap. (final unveiling on day 6 of swap!)
