So Behind

I go from having plenty of time to NONE!!!
I'm having a great time with my so called social life...but then it keeps me from replying to emails, doggies need a nail trim, kitties need their routine vet check up, garden/yard, and all of those pesky household chores, and most importantly swaps.  Yikes!!!
So today I will stay in my craft room and get to work on getting all of my swaps done!

The following are cards or altered art I received in the last couple of weeks:
Beautiful Valentine card from my friend Enedelia.  This card was not part of a swap.  It was super unexpected happy mail!!!

Valentine Tag from Jennalee from The Papered Soiree (instagram).

 Gorgeous tags (3) from Andrea R!
 You can go here to see the tags I sent her.

 Valentine Treat holder from Mary B.  Here's the one I sent her.

 Beautiful gate fold card I received from Cookie S.  
I need to mail her mine.

Gorgeous sketch card from Carol F.
I need to mail hers.

The following 5 cards are from a swap where we were to make a set of 5 (same/similar), and you would receive 5 different ones.  Here you will see the ones I made for this swap.


This absolutely stunning Diva card I received from Ti H.
 I'm almost done with Ti's Diva card.

Last but not least...
this very pretty monochromatic pink card is from Laura J.
I need to mail hers.

I feel terrible about not being on time with mailing out my swaps.
I have decided to slow down and learn to say "no" when asked to help out.  I realized I can do so much, and now I'm so stressed out... :-(

Have a wonderful weekend!!!


  1. So many lovely cards! I know you make awesome cards and when you get them to the gals, they will love them.

  2. Hi dear Oliva !! Que lindas tarjetas , usted es una gran artista

  3. Oh my, what a bevy of gorgeous cards you have received. All so pretty, all so unique. Life gets like that doesn't it. I wouldn't be too upset with you being a little late with posting your cards out will happen. Have a lovely week!

  4. Life has a way of getting in the way of our crafting sometimes doesn't it, hope things slow down for you soon!

  5. Lovely cards you have received - such talented crafters! I know it is difficult to keep up with life - No is a beautiful word sometimes :) xx Karen

  6. If things ever settle down here, we will have to get in a swap again! I have been busy with my bff's battle with cancer as well as my own health issues, and I still owe someone a Christmas letter! Yes! I look forward to meeting you in April!
