One Ebay group that I belong to is just jam-packed with talented ladies that love to swap. Now I have to be real honest with you - I would much rather swap with a sister than sell on ebay any old day!
And these girls over at TDIPT really know how to put on the dog -
it seems we finish one swap and the mob starts begging for another to start. Its like a wonderful fabulous frenzy and believe you me... I'm right there in the middle of the fist shakers screaming out "GIVE US ANOTHER SWAP!"
I've gotten so many treasures over the years from so many artists -every single one is something I hold close to my heart and keep in high regard.
I dont know how I got so lucky but Deb / Bittersweet Pastimes is my swappin' buddy and I knew I had to come up with something she would like - especially since this is her first TDIPT swap!
The deadline is fast approaching for our Spring Swap and scarey as it sounds, I was actually ahead of the game this time round (don't even ask me how - I'm clueless)! Anyway, last week I shipped this little girl to Debbie so she would hopefully have it before the weekend. She emailed me yesterday, telling me how everything will fit perfectly in her home. But if you know Debbie - you know what a gracious and kind lady she is! :)
I'll let you know when I receive mine. I'm sure I will be the talk of the town showing off my basket... wooohoooo :)

Just adorable! I know I'd love for her to come live at my house. Aren't these swaps so fun?

What a fabulous DOLLIE. I bet Debbie loves her dollie...anyone would be proud to have her.

I still have to work on mine for our Jan.

Time is ticking away fast...
And yes, the swaps are addicting.

Have a great weekend!
