Goodies and Giveaway

I have more memory. Not for my brain but for my camera. Got time to delete several photos, so that I could add more to it.
Here are some of the mail goodies I received while I was gone. The great tag kits from Michelle’s swap.

My song quote chunky book. Already has a spot on my shelf.
So here is the stack of trades I got from: Mindy, Hitomi, Jan R, Gloria A, Linda H, Jacki K, Nancy Lynn, Julie A, Ruth A, Judy H, Kathy L, Marvadell Z, Michelle R, Andrea F, Debbie W, Bridget L, Susie G, DJ, Kathy E, Janie S, Angie M, Debi B, Stephanie, Margo and any one I may have missed Thank you for trading with me. I enjoyed the whole experience.

Coming up is a three day weekend. Got to love those holidays. I need it. Heehee. The short work week is good. The evenings I've spent doing laundry, working on keeping up with my swaps and making up for time spent away from my two kitty cats, Jasper and Tiger.
Though I’m sure my new friend Charlene from Chicago will need even more time, she has 9 cats to give extra attention to since she was away. We had got to talking while on the cruise and she told me that there are not many people who get her when she tells them she has 9 cats. I totally did. We connected shared stories and pictures. Her and her husband own a couple bead stores in Chicago, Briolette Beads and more and Caravan beads. They have been going strong for 13 years.
So that extra day this weekend I will spend mowing my lawn and pulling weeds. Hope the weather holds out. Though I do get to have a fun day on Saturday taking a Stephanie Lee class at innerstandings.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Holiday weekend.

On my trip while we were in Skagway I was suppose to have an excursion to do some flight seeing and Dog sledding. Though with the weather the way it was, pretty much cloudy with rain, snow and showers all day and the low hanging fog. It was cancelled. Very disappointed, so looking forward to that. Since I did not get to see the doggies at the camp I went into town and brought one home with me. I named her Cruiser.

So on to my giveaway. I have this lovely 8 x 8 album kit.

As to the stash needing organizing, you are not alone. I could not see the doggie's picture-could you post again?
