About Me

My Photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

For The Love of Birds Swap

   UPDATE!  The swap is NOW CLOSED.  I have so many lovely ladies signed up (yippee!) but we have reached the magic number!  I will start matching people up with partners today, so be watching for my e-mail!:)  I am SO excited!

   Oh, I love birdies!  Birds, bird houses, bird nests, bird cages, etc.  

   It's almost that time of year again when the birds start building nests and preparing for their new little ones.:)  (Below is the darling tassel my friend, Elise, made for me.)

   Look at the hummingbird below!  Isn't she is a cutie patootie?!  What's your favorite bird?  I love black capped chickadees and goldfinches... oh, and BLUEBIRDS!


  My dear friend, Jes, makes the little angel birdies below...  I am in LOVE with them!  


   This little ball of love was in my front yard.  Isn't he the SWEETEST baby?:0)

   Well, I was thinking that I should spread some of this bird love around.  Who's in??

   I am hosting a FOR THE LOVE OF BIRDS SWAP!

   I will assign each person a partner and you must purchase and/or create items that have to do with birds for them.  Think birds, bird houses, bird nests, bird cages, bird fabric, etc.  Please spend no more than $25 (not including shipping).  Plan on mailing your package no later than March 25th!

   **To sign-up you must leave a comment on this post AND send me an e-mail (Lori at toosillysisters@cox.net) with the following information:

1)blog name
2)e-mail address
3)mailing address
4)things that you love 
5)anything that you don't want to receive, any allergies, etc.

   *If I do not receive an e-mail from you, then you will not be included in my swap.*

   Please read.....
Due to a few ladies that did not follow through with their swap partners in my last swap, I must mention this.  Please do not sign up unless you plan on sending your partner a lovely and thoughtful package.  I will be posting the names of any people that do not follow through on my swap.  

   I will be limiting the number of participants, so sign up quick like a bunny!:)

Enjoy your swapping!!!

Angie said...

I just saw your button on Kim's blog so I thought I would come over to check it out. I am too late to sign up but wanted to say 'hi' anyway! I suppose it's just as well since the last swap I did, my partner never sent me a package. I had fun making hers anyway. That little bird on the button really made me smile! Have fun!
