Swaps and a tussie

Today started with a trip to the eye doctor. I ripped one of my contacts and without them I'm as blind as a bat. Seriously. I drove there myself this morning (not such a bright idea, I know) and everything was a big grey blur. I had an eye exam and I'm happy to report that as bad as my vision is, it hasn't gotten any worse. They hooked me up with some new contacts and I can see again! I was driving home in awe of all the bright colors outside! lol I plan on getting Lasik one day. Or whatever it is that'll make my eyes good again.

I've been joining quite a few swaps lately. So much fun! I shipped off a finished tussie mussie to Heather Bluhm (yes, THE talented Heather Bluhm!) today. I can't wait to see what she has made for me...I'm sure it'll be gorgeous! I think my package is filled with fun stuff so I hope she likes it. Once she receives it I'll post a pic on here but for now I'll just give a little sneek peek...



I'm in a couple of swaps on swap-bot, too. I shipped one off today and have another one that's not due til mid September. It's a fabric swap so it should be lots of fun! I love getting mail. As a matter of fact, I got a piece of mail art the other day from Tia (Miz Smoochie Lips). That was a fun surprise! Check this thing out:



Oh how i wish i had legs like that Hawaiin chick! lol I love this...it definitely makes me want to alter a bingo card. Maybe I'll do that today. Here's another little thing I did the other day. I was bored and I needed a pink and aqua fix so I threw this together. It's just a painted canvas topped with a giant accordian fold flower.



Hey, have any of you seen this person? http://www.flickr.com/photos/7636984@N03/ She goes by pinklemonadeboutique and she makes fabulous purses. I love them! I really enjoy sewing and would love to make some bags like these but I have no clue where to begin. Here are a few bags she's made that I absolutely adore. One day I'll figure out how to make these! lol
