INSPIRATIONAL LINKS

Remember to think "miniature" when looking at these completed projects. Everything I'm posting I'm thinking could easily make for a smaller version, or inspire another idea. Half of this swap is being crafty enough to create awesome crafts small enough to fit in the Pringles can Wink

Aw, geez. I was really trying to cut down on swaps (honest!) but I'm caving in and signing up for this one. My husband and I are closing on our first house in May, which means I'm getting my very own first garden. I can't stop daydreaming about it, so this will hold me over until we actually have it.  Smiley

Congratulations on your first house! That's got to be really exciting Smiley

On the signups/sendouts dates, I was thinking last night after I made this post...do you guys think we should move everything up a week? Say, signups end a week earlier as well as sendouts? The only reason I'm thinking this is because spring is almost here and by the time we all receive it will be early to mid May, really close to summer. Just let me know what you guys think, I'm happy either way!

Thank you! Yes, I'm unbelievably excited and am having a hard time thinking about anything else. I figure a swap will help me pass the time productively rather than doodling garden layouts all day.  Cheesy

Sorry you keep missing them, but I hope you can join this one! Smiley

For Canada Post, are you referring to sending within Canada? If so, let me know and I can PM some ladies from Canada who participated in the last round and ask them as they all sent to each other (they were my Canadian Circle Cheesy).
