002Here is tag of the month swap I received from Carol (no blog). Tee over at The Altered Paper hosted the swap. are few things that Carol sent along with her tag. Love getting goodies!!! And also love swapping!005I also got started on my family recipe mini paper bag albums. Here is some of the paper I have been cutting. And in the pic above is  my ATG gun I got last year 40% off at Joanne's. I try not to get anything with out coupons.004I have also decided that I want to start next year and do a couple of craft show. Make some extra money for my camping and travel trips. I am hoping that the paper craft thing will go over good. Like the mini paper bag albums, for starters. Got a few other ideas for selling. Will play it by ear. Still will be swapping!
Waiting for Friday to come along to pic up my rig. I think friend Pearl is going to come along with a pad and pen taking notes to help me remember everything! Dad thought it might be to long a day for him.
Thanks for looking and come back soon.
blessing to all

001Here is my letter C ATC card for the swap the Tee is holding over at The Altterd Paper. She holds great swaps go and join in. C is for cat, since it is fall, Oct, I decided to keep in with that theme and do a holloween cat. I used some scrap book paper, torn hand made paper and scrabble tiles,and a vintage orange cat that was  for a cake topper. Love those old vintage things. My partner was Janet  of Janet's Art Play. I will post what she sent me soon.
And here are a few things that went along for the ride with this swap. Love swaps!! I will have more swaps to show you as soon as I get them.
Well ….and now for my news!!! I am in the process of fulfilling a life long dream…… traveling in an RV. Sooo by some miracle I was able to get a Class C motor home! I will take delivery  on it Oct 19. I am so excited , I can't stand my self. lol   Please go to my other blog and read all about it. And see pic’s that I have so far.

015This is the inside of the coffin swap over at Tee’s . Painted it black and cut paper to fit inside.

001Painted outside top with orange and black, glittered the black. Stamped some cobwebs then glittered them also. Fancy cut some bats from scrapbook paper.003Here it is all filled. Sure was hard finding small things to fill it with. 004And a few things that went along for the ride. I had fun making this swap. Just what I needed. After a long dry spell.005I think my partner Abby should have received it by now. I mailed out my last 3 swaps today Sad smile Tee sure hope you get some more going! I am back in the groove. Got room organized so I can work. I have more to show you but will have to wait a few days till partners get them.

All for now thanks for looking and come back soon
