Track 4 3D swap

My Track 4 friends are having a swap!



This is a magnetic picture frame. It's about 5x7. I ended up putting sticky notes on it, because it just looked too empty without a photo! The frames came from the Target Dollar spot a year or two ago. They are covered with various DSP (Spring Fling for this one). I punched holes with a Cropadile for the ribbons, and made magnets to match!

Stack O' Swaps


These are my swaps for Convention. LOL The bottom case is all my 3D stuff. I can't believe I'm taking so much stuff! Most of them are for organized Splitcoast swaps, but there are some for just-for-fun general swapping! It's a good thing we're driving, not flying, eh?

There will be a swap posted every day while I'm gone!

Splitcoast Dinner Swap Box

I need a swap container for the SCS dinner swap, and this is what I came up with. At least it's distinctive! I'll upload my actual card for the SCS dinner swap on Wednesday.



I used Bella Rose paper (of course) and the scallop punch. Then I made medallions with Lovely Letters, Chocolate Chip ink, Ridinghood Red cs, Kiwi Kiss cs, and Chocolate Chip cs. You can't really see in this photo, but I put a couple medallions on the top, too! Just in case I "flip my lid" and it gets mixed up somewhere.

Luggage Tags

I'm getting so excited for Convention!!! Because every demo there will have the same bag, I needed a luggage tag.



I used the beautiful new Designer Paper Bella Rose, the new scallop punch, Flower Fusion, Vintage brads, Kiwi Kiss cardstock, and my computer to print my name. :-)

Duck , Duck, What???

Several of you asked for an update on the ducklings, so here they are in all their glory!



They are playing along the ditchbank near the daylilies. :-) We flood irrigate our land once every 10 days, so this little ditch has water about 4 out of every 10 days. This makes the duckies *very* happy! The formerly yellow ducklings are now these "fawn and white" Runner ducks. The little brown ducklings are still brown, but feathered now, not fuzzy. Yes, that's a little red sandbox toy floating in the ditch. If I were better at Photoshop, I would have edited it out!

Today we acquired a new duck from one of my daughter's co-workers. It is a Pekin duck, and *much* larger (about twice as big!) as our little ducks! We have named her "Eileen," because she does this funny Border Collie thing when she looks at something: she cocks her head to one side!




So far, the little ducks aren't liking Eileen too much. Which is hilarious, because they are *so* much smaller! We'll see how that goes.
