Some Swap Goodies!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day weekend! Mine is going pretty good. I have done something to my right foot and it is killing me so I haven't been able to do much shopping or go to any of the awesome yard sales that are prevalent around here on this holiday weekend. Oh well, at least I haven't been able to overspend, right?? See, there's good in everything if we only will look to find it!

I did an Autumn Swap with my friends over at Prim Pals Forum. Holli from Where the Rooster Crows was my partner for this swap and she spoiled me rotten!! She sent me some awesome grungy pumpkins, crow, and rooster along with a wheelbarrow, some gorgeous kitchen towels, a primitive dammit doll (which I've already used!), a travel mug and matching purse notepad with my initial on it, four cute little hot pads/pot holders with roosters on them, a cute little figurine of a turkey sitting on top of a pumpkin, a rooster plaque that says "I'm still a hot chick, it just comes in flashes now", a magnet that says "Lead me not into temptation, I can find the way myself", a beautiful fall themed hand embroidered towel, and as a joke, she also sent me a pair of unmentionables with the word "diva" stitched on them! It's a running joke with those girls over there that I am the diva of the forum! So it was a funny and cute little joke. Thanks for everything Holli, I love it all!

I have been pretty productive this weekend. Since I'm not able to do much on my feet, I've been busy crafting. I have finished up another rag garland, made some rag balls, I've done some more faux caramel apples which I will be doing a tutorial on on Tuesday since some of you have asked for one. I'm also planning on making some fall dough fillers and I'm going to be working some more on an fall afghan I'm crocheting. The weather has been a bit cooler this weekend and I think that helps me get more in the mood to craft. Fall is my favorite season and I am excited to pull out the sweaters and warm socks!

Until next time. . .
