Lovely Weekend

Thats what i have had, saturday was spent with all my great friends at the crop, my little baby jake came home with me and spent the night with his grandma to let his mum and dad get some unbroken sleep lol, then today his mum came and they are still here so it has been lovely spending the day with them both, he has slept through most of it mind you

At the crop yesterday the wonderful maz gave us the most gorgeous pressie, a hand made milk carrier thingy, you know the kind the milk man used to carry round when delivering to the doorstep, all made from card and each carton had a little somethig inside, bibs, socks,a teddy and some booties, its just gorgeous, thank you maz

i did work on my christmas album while at the crop but i hav'nt actualy finished a page yet although several are almost there so i will soon have some pics to show you although not a crafty thing has been achieved today too much baby cuddling going on lol

well off to have a tidy up this place looks like a tornado has passed through.

ok so i love taking part in exchanges, i am thinking of setting up a blog devoted to exchanging, one exchange a month, you don't have to take part in all of them, just as many as you feel want to, we could do many different exchanges....
just an ornie,
and many more.....

the blog would be devoted entirely to exchanging,
the way i see it working is,
you get a whole month to decide if you want to join, at the end of the month you are given your partner, you then have the following month to make and post your exchange item, you could start making as soon as you have signed up to give yourself more time!

to make this work you would need to spread the word and get as many members as possible.

so what do you think?
and are you interested?
