Back in June my friend Lori did a bird swap! I was on vacation and tried to sign up through email stealing wifi from behind a coffee house. Well, me and computers, mainly me do not work well together, so I sent it to cyberspace, one again. When I got back I resent an email to Lori that she actually got. The swap was already assigned, but Lori has the biggest loving, caring heart, and said she would swap with me. I really love crows. She does not!! But she sent me some cool things. I wanted to share them with you. One I am saving to show with my Fall decorations. Lori knows I am planning a new craft/studio. So, she sent me this awesome burlap holder with black birds on it and she tied all of these ribbons on it. I have decided on these colors for the room. And of course my favorite brown and orange.
I've put my Where Women Create magazines in it. They fit perfect and I only get them with my 40% off coupon from Joann's. Most of the time I go to Borders, have my chai tea, warmed chocolate chip cookie, and look at all the magazines!! I am always writing things down. One of my favorite dates with Sim.
Lori made this awesome sign for my new room!! I put some of my favorite things with it!! The birds nest is a real Robins nest that Sim's Mom gave him for his birthday if he came over and got it!! He got two of them!! Those robins build some awesome nest!! I love my coffee and this coffee cup! This special sign will be going right over my desk area where I can see it!! The weather is finally starting to break alittle here in Michigan and that means we can start painting real soon!! I can't wait!! Thank you my friend Lori for letting me put alittle bit of our friendship in a room that will mean so much to me.
