It's not what you gather, but what you scatter, that tells what kind of a life you have lived.

Swapping and Relief Society

I can't remember, but I think I told you about a web-site I found called You swap different things, like cards and craft items, with other people. It's a lot of fun! I signed up for my first 4 swaps at the beginning of February and sent off what I was supposed to. I've been waiting patiently to get mine back in the mail and I finally got three of them! Such good stuff, too. Here are photos of what I recieved. (I forgot to take pictures of what I sent, darn it!)

I signed up for a Valentine's Day card swap and here is the card I got. Inside was the cute little doily as a bonus.

I don't know if you can tell, but the paper is handmade and the heart is machine embroidered!

I signed up for a Big Fat Stuffed Envelope swap and look at these goodies!

The two clear envies at the bottom of the photo have papers and ribbons and vintage ephemera in them!

I signed up for I {heart} Mail Art - February and I got this cute envelope with hand-drawn pictures on it. I love it! And inside there was some goodies, too.

Now all I'm waiting for is my Whimsey Jar. I can't wait to see what's in it. If you would like to join in the swapping fun, go to and register. Registration is free, and the rewards are plentiful!

Now, I have the promised pictures of the Relief Society party. We had a good turn out, good food and great companionship. Take a look......

We had a make-yourself-a-croissant bar. YUM!
We had displays of sisters' talents and interests. This one was mine.
This is crocheted! Isn't it beautiful?
Beautiful photography.




Jewelry making.


Lovely afghans.

Knitting, baking and reading. She also plays the piano.

She wrote the book on display.

A talented sister who does a lot of different things.

Needlepoint or counted cross-stitch. I can't remember.


Organizational training.

Home remodeling.

This sister grows beautiful orchids, as well as doing needle work.

We had a different hat on each table, along with a program and a little hat favor.

I spent $23 total on the decorations, and it turned out pretty good. Everyone seemed to be pleased and all had a good time.

I will show you how to make those little hat favors another day, but for now, that's all folks! Hope you have a good day and I'll see you tomorrow for Friday Friends!
