Participating in a swap is rather fascinating and challenging too. Especially when you are assigned to someone you don't even know. The excitement could be compared to a blind date or better yet, walking into a room filled with unfamiliar faces. You find yourself scanning the room and getting a feel of the air to see if you "belong". You've felt this way once or twice before, right? Well, that was me a couple of days ago...
With a click of a mouse, that feeling of uncertainty disappeared as I entered into Kelley's world. Blog land is like walking through the front door of someone's life. Oh, I know that sounds so surreal, but I really feel that way. I hope you have a good feeling when you walk through my door. It is always open and you are always welcome. If you have followed me for any amount of time, you know that I love everything vintage. I love to travel. I love to create. And I just LOVE to live life. So when I "travel" to other blogs, I'm always looking to be inspired, to be impressed and to be challenged. I want to learn more and get to know that person better. I want to find someone like me, who sees things the way I do...whether it be through a camera lens, through art, or just finding something extraordinary out of the ordinary. Someone that I can call a Friend.
So to sum up this post, I have done my homework. I walked into someone's life that I did not know. I liked what I saw. I was impressed. I was inspired. Most of all I was challenged. My swap partner and I have more in common than not. Today, I put together an extraordinary pink and green box that will delight her and I so enjoyed doing it. Extraordinary...I like that word.
Being in my studio today was good. It felt right. It was fun.
Above are just a couple of sneak peaks of the Pink & Green Swap that are ready to be mailed to Kelley of Teacup Mosaics . I will post a few more later, hopefully without giving all of the surprises away!
