past swapping examples including packages I've received can be found here
Deadline for mailing package is November 1 - I do love a sensible deadline ;-)
Contact your recipient to get a mailing address ... any problems just let me know.


  1. Laughing like a drain over here.... "I do love a sensible deadline"...... ho ho. Have fun, anyway!

  2. WOW! Would dearly LOVE to have those hydrangeas in a small vase here at my desk this morning. They are positively scrumptious!
    I am excited for you all participating in the swap and am eager to hear all your reports. Perhaps one day I will be brave and join in! And I just adore your "sensible deadline" remark: completely unheard of in these parts!

  3. Yes You Did!! Thanks!
    Those pics are just STUNNING!!
    How did I miss this exchanging packages? :(

  4. This looks like so much fun! Thanks for including me!

  5. Wait, can't I send squirrel jerky to everyone? I have so much...

  6. Fun fun. Just the other day I pulled out a piece of that coloured tissue (you used to wrap things for our swap) to collage a bit into a mixed media art work. And I have that little abundance rock still sitting here by my computer.

  7. oh goodie~ i am going to enjoy spoiling you! leenda is in for a treat - i received a package from shamu this year and it was TOO FUN. okay, to be clear -the package addresses all 15 things, correct? i am so looking forward to this.

    love the hydrangeas!!!

  8. Very exciting and fabulous deadline :-) means I can really put some thought into it!

  9. Greatings from Portugal. I love your new layout. The larger pictures really stand out beautifully and the banner looks terrific. Oh! I missed the gift exchange ... next time.
    You really are a gifted blogger ... love reading all your notes.
    Have a great weekend.

  10. *Chucks* I was late for this swapping :( Well, hopefully in the next one I can participate. I love to send and receive letters, etc. Love your pics as well :)

  11. Any idea how this has worked out? I was just viewing everyone's blogs and I only see that Art & Tea and Moose's Mom posted about receiving packages. So that means Pamela and I sent packages. And, from knowing Art & Tea I'm sure she sent one too.

    I realize not everyone blogs the same but now I'm wondering if anyone else actually participated.

  12. Just an update that Alice in Paris took it upon herself to put together a 2nd package so that I would receive one. Someone now owes her, instead of me, a 15 Things Swap.

  13. A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. A week ago I played around this site:
    [url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii Live Tournaments[/url]
    They say you can play online Fight Night game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
    Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

  14. PetSmart was founded in 1986 and opened its first [url=http://www.lovelonglong.com][b]dog bed[/b][/url] Warehouse stores in the Phoenix area. Through several mergers and acquisitions, PetSmart expanded in the early- and late-1990s across the U.S. and into Canada, and entered [url=http://www.lovelonglong.com][b]dog bed[/b][/url] online retailing through a partnership with Idealab in 1999.
    In antique 2000, PetSmart remodeled most of its store in a plan they called "Eagle" which changed scads of its stores from a front-half [url=http://www.lovelonglong.com][b]dog bed[/b][/url] storefront, back-half warehouse feel to an all-over standard retail market, in hopes of not intimidating customers.
    In August 2005, the company announced that it was rebranding its name from PETsMART to PetSmart. This move is designed to highlight its evolution from a pet supply store to a solutions-oriented company.
    As of November 2007, PetSmart operated approximately 1,000 stores and about 150 locations with PetsHotels and Doggie Day Camps. Some PetSmarts are [url=http://www.lovelonglong.com][b]dog bed[/b][/url] co-located with Banfield Pet Hospital veterinary offices.

  15. Just wondering if eBay makes it possible for you to sell [url=http://www.ticketchoice.com.au]concert tickets[/url] online? Do you know if you'll find any restrictions depending on what country you're in?

    My parents have just referred to as me and asked if i could "get rid" of their two tickets to some concert as they wont have the ability to make it as a result of an additional family event.

    Apart from asking close friends etc, i thought ebay would be a great place to market them.

    But whats ebay's policy on marketing tickets? Ive heard alot about it around the news but ive forgotten what happened.

    and if it matters, the concert is inside of this coming month

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

  19. Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested
    to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
    destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally
    off topic but I had to share it with someone!
