Swappin In The New Year

Hello Fellow Bloggers! I know I have been away for a while but only with my postings. I've been trying to keep up with all of my followers blogs but I just haven't had time to do much with mine. I am going to try and make it a point to start posting more. Everyone has been so faithful with reading what I have to say that I don't want to make you think you made a mistake signing on to follow me and then I fall off the boards.

My first post this year is on the most recent swap I participated in. Tammy over at hosted this swap and we were to send a doll and at least two more thing to our swap partners. I was blessed to have Judy from as my partner. Be sure and check out her blog if you aren't already one of her followers. She is an amazing woman who loves her family to death. You won't be disappointed in what she has to say.

Judy sent me some fabulous hand made goodies. Look at all these wonderful things!!!

I know Judy had a hard time parting with this candle holder she painted. There is an adorable little lamb in the center of it. I find the little ladybug doll to be absolutely precious. My daughter tried to claim her but I put my foot down.

Judy even included a little shamrock for St. Paddy's Day and some Valentine Kleenex. Wasn't that sweet of her!

I am totally loving this crow spring make do. I love crows and this was immediately placed on my mantle.

I think you can see the details of the candle holder a little better in this picture. Click on the picture to enlarge it to see its full detail.

Thank you Judy for being so gracious with your giving and for sharing your talents with me. I am truly blessed each time I participate in a swap. I have made friends with some wonderful and talented ladies.

I'm hoping to do another post this week on a couple of giveaways I have won. I have been so lucky lately with all my wins. It is a fabulous way to get my home decorated.

Blessings to everyone,


  1. Hi Amy adorable swap goodies!!!
    Thanks so much for joining in on the fun.
    Take care,

  2. I am so glad you liked the goodies that I sent to you! You never know if what you like will be the same as what your partner likes. I'm always nervous until I hear from them. I thought you might like the crow!
    I know what you mean about just trying to keep up on reading other blogs. I tend to neglect my blog for that reason too. There's just too many great places to visit.
    I'll be watching for some more posts from you. hehehe
    Have a good day my friend!
