News to share and this and that :)

 Well, I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday with family and friends, if you celebrate. :)

Isn't this the most darling thing?
I got this from De from De-Lightful Minis.
She and I are doing a little swap after I saw this on her blog.
She made me one with lots more pink (of course) I'm making her some kitchen chair cushions in return.

I thought her use of the one of a hook and eye as scissors to be nothing short of genius, but De always amazes me in more ways than one!

In other news, lol ;) I wanted to share with you what my friend Yuki from Spain has been making. Working TV's and laptops for the dollhouse. See this youtube video.  This is his etsy shop; Amatheria.
My friend Sandi found some of her miniatures in this slide show after attending the Boise, Idaho Miniatures Show. :)  You can find her etsy shop here. She also has a new shop on zibbet.
If you are on facebook, you probably already had a peek at this.

A new color scheme I am creating in for my giveaway next month.
Blue and Yellow.
Some close ups. :)
 Ottoman and pillows.

I'm trying to give the winner of my giveaway some choices. :)

If you are interested in my giveaway, see this post and follow the directions.
I hope your week is off to a fabulous start and that you are busy having fun with minis!
Until next time, my friends. :)

Would you like Pink or Blue? :)

You can't see it too well in the pic, but there is a white faux fur rug there.

I adore the lace trim on these pillows, it's vintage. :)

Can anyone guess what the core of the over-stuffed ottomans are?

Those are things I've been working on for my giveaway. I also have two other color combinations I'm thinking about doing.

I've also been working on my swap items, but, I can't show you that, because it's a Secret! shhhh!!! :)

At the moment, I've got about twenty different projects on my work table in various stages of completion.

Do you do this?
 I find I start one project, which makes me think of another project, which leads to another... and so on and so on and so one. lol I like having a bunch of things going at one time, makes the time pass so quickly.

I was working with some stuff, which led to this.

I know! Wrong season... but, I've had this greenery for a while and was just dying to see it come to life.

How about an alternative color combination?

If they can have a Chanukah bush, why not a wreath too?

If you are having any problems with the swap, just let me know or drop me a line

If you have not signed up to be in my giveaway, please see this post for instructions.

I have many new followers to welcome, I see. :)
So glad to have you all along, I'm behind in my welcoming, but will tend to that shortly.
For now, I say, Welcome All!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I love to hear what you have to say. :)

Swap Details! :)

So sorry for the delay! I had quite the busy day creating yesterday and by the time evening came along, the brain was just misfiring. ;)  So, I had some leisure time and read blogs instead of posting on mine. :)
(naughty girl, I know!)

Okay, so here we go with the swap details.

I had to really rattle my head to think of a  random way to figure out who was going to swap with who.
I know!
 This required brain power on my part.
Which is why it was probably best left for a fresh start on a bright and sunny Monday, as it is here. :)

I alphabetised every one's blog names and that is what determined who would give to whom.

Sonya >>>>> Lyssa

Okay! So, you see your name and >>>>> is who you give to. Does this make sense? I hope so! :)
See this post's comments to find their color preferences.
And, be sure to contact each other for addresses. :)

As soon as you create your item, please take a pic and send it to me here. But, don't share it until the big reveal on May 8th. I'm hoping we all have enough time to create and send and receive by then!
(wipes sweat off brow)

The top pic is a doll that Patricia made me. Isn't she just adorable? We even have matching bracelets, she and I. :)  Patricia makes the most wonderful dolls and has fabulous films and stories on her blog.

The chocolate and cherry crazy cake was made by Deb. Isn't it divine? I love it so much! She's busy celebrating the return of her hubby from Iraq. You can find her blog here.

Since so many people have pink and blue as their colors of choice, I've been making things in pink and blue and thinking about what the giveaway prize will be. I wish I had more to show you this far, but I don't. ;)

If you want to be included in my giveaway, just follow the directions and comment on this blog post here.

I think we have a great crew for the swap and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone makes. :) 

Thanks so much to all of you for participating!

Happy Creating!
until next time.......... :)
