Okay, so I am going to do a swap and a giveaway!
First the swap. Since I've never run a swap before, this will be an education in the process. ;)
The swap theme is "Mother's Day" so anything feminine that you would give as a gift on Mother's Day would be appropriate. Mother's Day here in the USA is on May 8th, this year.
If you would like to be in the Swap, comment on this post and leave a preference for color and I will match peeps up and have names listed on this Sunday. So, time is of the essence for this one! It would be great if everyone could get their swap items made, sent and received by May 8th so we can all do a reveal on that day. Feel free to share this with your followers if you have a blog, the more the merrier! :)
Now, on to the giveaway. :)
The last time I had a giveaway was last year on Mother's Day, so, I think that will be the day I announce the winner. Only, the winner won't have to wait as long as the last one did, since life is much calmer here now. :)
There are many ways to increase your chances of winning the giveaway. :)

Give here and you will get two extra chances to win, it's such a good cause. You only have until March 31st to do this. For privacy concerns, you can just email me the reference number, don't tell me how much, it will all add up. :)
So, you can have seven entries to win. :)
Now, do you want to know what the giveaway is or would you like to be surprised?
I hope this doesn't get too crazy! lol
So, you are probably wondering what these pictures are of, aren't you?
Last year, I had a client in need of some bird of paradise plants. I put the word out of my need and very graciously Cecilia Colo sent me one she had made. She thought I could make them myself, but one look, I knew it was out of my realm, they are made from clay. Isn't it lovely though? I've been enjoying it on my work table for quite a while now.
The urns were filled by my friend Cath of Golden Unicorn Minis. I love them. :)
I've been seeing a lot of birdhouses on peoples blogs lately and I wanted to share with you the one my dear friend Sandi of WhimsyCottageMinis gave me. She doesn't have any in her shop right now, as she is preparing for a miniature show, but, she said if you convo her on etsy, she'll reserve them for you. :)
Look how it comes packaged, isn't this the cutest thing?
Need a prescription for your addiction? ;)
Oh, just a bit of shopping....
more to come on that later. :)
