This Winter brought the most snow I've ever seen since I moved here to the South and too cold weather. I am so ready for Spring! This weekend we got a wonderful teaser but yesterday and today it's been cold and rainy. Maybe this is the beginning of the end? Dear Spring, please hurry....

Spring = Spring cleaning. I saw this article (I believe it was in BHG magazine) where it suggested hosting a swap party for your unwanted things. I thought it was brilliant! Essentially, you take all the things you want out of your house (things that you'd normally sell, maybe) and put them out on a table and have all of your friends do the same. Then, instead of buying things or throwing things out, everyone has a turn taking something they want from the table. The article showed household things but I thought that it might be fun to do with all the scrappy stuff I want to get rid of! Or maybe a combination of household stuff and scrappy stuff. I've been thinking about it recently because I'm sure I can't be the only one Spring cleaning already. Gonna have to run it by my local girls and see who's in. I'll let you know how it goes, if we do it. Perhaps some of you VA girls can stop by :)

I got my February LP kits in the mail on Saturday and ripped into the card kit right away. The SEI paper are gorgeous! I haven't quite killed the kit yet but I am working on it. I want to get into the featured kit too...but I have to clean up this mess first.

I'll leave you with my February kit creations so far. As always, you can find them in my Etsy shop. Oh and ps...all of my scrapbook albums in my shop are on sale! Check it out :)
