My Colonial Home said...

Hi Amy,
You always have such a wonderfully organized swap and I know the ones that are in it do appreciate that so much.
I have been in too many swaps where I have been burned and I mean burned...so I do not get in them.
Now...If I had the time and the energy to do this I certainly would love to do it but I am not. Sad as that makes me but I get my fix by reading and looking at everyone's wonderful packages they received.
How fun!
Hope you had a fantastic Mother's Day.
