It doesn't say anything about how EXCITING it is to be the recipient of said swaps. Nothing at all about the happy dance that occurs when you open your box and find that large envelope containing said lovelies - no matter how it embarrasses your children.

How could they miss that? ;)
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by tomorrow - I'll show you part of the latest batch of dance inspiring swaps from the spectacular stampers at Stampin' Addicts.

  1. *giggle* I love this! I know exactly how you feel, because I do the same's like opening a Christmas present!

  2. Yay for swaps!! Can't wait to see yours!

  3. When that little package arrives in the mail, it is such a happy moment! Can't wait to see!

  4. Too funny! We addicts totally get that it is sooo much more than an exchange of goods :) It is building lasting friendships!

  5. Agreed! Finding your swaps in the mail is so fun!

  6. I feel the same way, Adriana! Wishing I had the time to make some for the regional tomorrow. I love the in-person swapping, too! Hope to see you there!
