June Coloriffic Swap ~ Sent

Here's my June Coloriffic Swap-O-Rama package, getting ready to go out

All wrapped up

The colors this month were black, white, and a third mystery color determined by the giver or the receiver. My partner didn't voice a preference, so I went with aqua. The handmade items include the little polka dot purse (with the tied handle) and the French memo board. I also made a cheesy little beaded bookmark with my swap partner's name on it, but I may not include that after all, as it is a little too basic (think Girl Scouts).

Speaking of mail, I've been on a bit of an online shopping kick recently. Well, "obsession" may be a more appropriate word, really. I think I've gone too long saying that I'll buy something "next month," but then the next month comes, and I still don't buy it. So...I've kind of been making up for my months of deprivation plus a little extra to make sure I'm super saturated. Most everything is still in transit, but I did receive a heavenly
little package from snapcrafty. I don't know how I'll ever bring myself to use any of it, as it is really just a lot of fun to pour everything out and just imagine the possibilities.

Warm palette bead set

2 charm lots

Vintage flowers

and some extras thrown in!

I also ordered the featured necklace from Fred Flare
(sheepish grin). Really, I should have been good with just one of these wonderful things, but sometimes in life you have to indulge.
