Fall Mini Swap and A Few New Things in My Etsy Shop

I participated in Emilie's Fall Mini Swap and my partner was Judy. Judy sent me some really nice fall things. She sent me a pumpkin jar, a candle, some fat quarters in fall colors and 2 gorgeous dish cloths. I love fall stuff and Judy definitely out did herself!
This is what I sent Judy. I sent her some homemade potpourri in apple/orange spice and cedar, some scrapbooking stuff, ribbon, fibers and 2 stuffed "grunged" pumpkins that smell like a baked cinnamon mixture. I learned how to make them from Sarah's blog. Thanks for the great idea Sarah! I loved making these.
Thanks Judy for a fun Mini Fall Swap!

Okay, now I'm shamelessly going to plug my Etsy Shop
I made some extra grunge pumpkins for my Etsy Shop and for the Etsy for Charity Shop.
I am selling them for $7.50 a set.
They smell really good!

Earl took me craft shopping on Saturday (which was so nice to get out of the house with Earl!) and we both liked this variegated fall color cotton crochet thread.

I couldn't wait to make a hat out of it.

This is for sell in my Etsy Shop for $6.00.

It fits adults too!

I have been so busy doing swaps that I haven't had time to put anything in my Etsy Shop so it felt good to finally get something new in there. I have a couple of other swaps ready to mail out as soon as Earl can get to the post office for me and a few more things almost done to put in my shop.

Hi Sherry, just wanted to ask you where you find out about most of your swaps? We are prior swap partners and I have not been blogging in almost a month. I think I have forgotten how to look for good swaps. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving!

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
