Swap Updates and A Giveaway

~SWAP UPDATES ~ For St. Patrick's Day I participated in a little swap that Karla (Karla's Cottage) hosted, in which we each exchanged two tags with a St. Pat's Day theme. These are the tags I received in the swap. The one above is from Kathy (Country Chintz) and the tag below is from Karla herself! Aren't they lovely?
And as an added bonus, Karla tucked in all these wonderful wallpapers! How sweet is that?
To see my contribution to the swap, click here.

I also participated in this darling springtime swap hosted by Sarah (Gypsy Mermaid Life)

We each were to make specific items to hang on a springtime clothesline - hat, gloves, dress, bloomers, bird and butterfly.
Here are the beauties I received in the swap:
Gloves ~ Sandy (Quill Cottage); Butterfly ~ Sarah (Gypsy Mermaid Life)
Dress ~ Catieann (Catiean's Corner); Bird Tag ~ Sadie (Craftily Everafter) Hat ~ Tammie (My Art Soul Wings); Bloomers ~ Tricia (Tricia Stirling).

This is a beautifully illustrated cookbook from the Among Friends series of books. Authors Shelly Reeves-Smith and Rosie Kelley have combined the most delectible recipes with sweet drawings to create a keepsake cookbook. To enter, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post and I will draw the winning name on Tuesday, April 1st (no foolin').

Even if I don't win this book I am going to buy it. It looks gorgeous...and delicious...and what more could you ask for from a book...well, I guess maybe a hunky man who will cook all of the recipes for you!

Cute swaps! It looks like it was fun. I love the cookbook. It makes me smile as I don't necessarily by a cookbook because of the recipes. Sometimes it's the layouts! This is a definite one that I like the layout of!
