November already?

Wow October just flew by!
I just don't know where it went.  I did get a little crafting in for some swaps at
First was a swap for Artist Trading Cards with the theme of sharing what we are thankful for.  I went with a general fall theme as I love the sesason with all it's rich colors and beauty.

Next was a mini "quilt" wall hanging and I chose to make one from scrapbook paper using the pattern of Hula Twist.  I'm hoping it brings the warmth of friendship to it's reciepient who should recieve it today.

The last swap was for an altered item: It could be anything that we altered. I did something I have been planning to do for so long.  I used a plastic case from an older sizzix die and made a mini fall album to go inside.

I think this is all the pages...but I might have missed a few.  I have  a few more of the cases and know I'll be making more for different events.


  1. Hello, ladybug, I love all of your swaps!! Thanks for the idea of using the plastic case from the smaller Sizzix dies to house a mini accordion book. Neat idea!
    hugs, Patty
