Where do I start? No, really.... WHERE???

Just this morning I sent out a box to a swap partner, completing TWO back-to-back swaps in the past week and a half. This past two weeks have also seen me on three freelance projects--two of which had drop-dead deadlines yesterday--and down with a nasty sinus infection. Needless to say, I'm POOPED!

But the swaps were too much fun!

For one, the theme was "spring." I sent a box of springy, flowery, pink and blue goodies--some handmade and some vintage.

For the second swap, the theme was "Marie Antoinette: Let them Eat Cake!"
I wish I had had more time and felt better when creating the box for this swap; after seeing what other swap members have made, I'm feeling that my box was a bit "un frou-frou"! But I still had fun making it. Plus, I decorated the top of the box with a giant glittery MA, and my swap partner's name? Mary Ann! (Mary Ann--if you're reading this: STOP! I've posted a spoiler pic below of the goodies inside the box!)

I filled this box with so many goodies with a French toile theme. I LOVE toile, so I went to town making tags, a pincusion, and a rose pin, among other things.

So now that they'e done, what's next?

Oh, yeah.

Now I have to CLEAN MY ROOM! When I started, there was a table in here somewhere.

I seriously don't know where to start.

Puts a whole new spin on the term "spring cleaning," doesn't it?

OMG, you and me both... plus now I also feel guilty for neglecting my blog for A WHOLE MONTH! :P

Plus MILs serger is on the kitchen table downstairs and I have been receiving "pointed looks" from DH, ha!

Wow, I love the pretties inside your box. Your box is just lovely. Mary Ann will love it!

I'm a huge toile junkie.
Our kitchen counter looks like a fabric store barfed all over it at the moment. ;)

LMBO!!! What a mess girl, but that means you have been creative and having fun :)

Ooohhh I wish I'd been your swap partner...she's going to be very happy with this!!

And seeing your work area -- mine isn't far off that -- my oldest just came home for the summer from Uni and his room has been my "studio" -- so now we're sharing and it's a double mess. I've got to get in there this week and fix it!!
