A bit of swap news and links

Hello all. We are wrapping up the swap soon. I will be posting some new photos tomorrow on our flickr site and would like for two lost swap buddies to contact me-(cdetroyes at yahoo dot com) so we can finish up except for a few photos. Would Pamela M who is partnered with Tracy G please e-mail me and e-mail Tracy, and would Lindsey, who is partnered with Lisa (the tin house) e-mail me and Lisa. I will leave you with an interesting link that give ideas and a few tutorials for handmade holiday gifts. There are some really great ideas there!

  1. Sharon, I'm not sure if my comment last night might have arrived too late - but I still have not received my swap, nor heard if my parcel (posted to the UK airmail in August) ever arrived. My swap partner was Lindsey, and I am Lisa (the tin house). Anyway, I've emailed Lindsey a few times without reply so I'm hoping she's ok and that something will arrive for me sometime soon.

  3. I live in San Francisco. A world away from you. But I want to tell you that I think you are amazing: you write beautifully (and from the heart), you share valuable information, and you encourage a lifestyle that could benefit us all. I wish I knew you.

    Please keep up your wonderful blog.

  5. Sharon, I have emailed you several times about my missing swap partner but maybe they have got lost in the ether.
    I have not heard from her and as she lives in Houston wondered if you had as I am worried due to the hurricane that hit over there.I am Jo and her name is Melanie. Thanks.

  6. Sharon - I still haven't heard from my swap partner, Maggie - and the emails I have sent have come back as undeliverable. Not sure if it's my server or hers.
    Thanks
