Out With The Old, In With The New

Even though the swap has been over for a month, I never had a chance to post my swap item that I made for my partner Amy for our New Year's Resolutions themed swap with Bee Creative Swaps! One of Amy's goals was to learn to swim to so I made her a set of coasters based on that. Living in Florida, the idea of someone learning to swim was so exciting for me! The water is such a huge part of my life and I just love Amy's goal.

The "keep calm" poster theme is a bit over done, but I thought it was a cute idea that for coasters. I went back and forth with myself for a while one weather or not I should make a 5th coaster for the word "and." I decided I wanted to keep it an even number. Bad choice?

I promise I haven't died! I've been Florida for just under a month now and it has been absolutely INSANE. I started a new job and by new job it's actually the job that I had before I left for Boston, but so much has changed since I was last working here. Which means 12-16 hours a day to re-familiarize myself but also to kick off new projects. I've been really loving it, but I haven't been loving the lack of time I've had to paint or sew or craft or read or do anything really for my own enjoyment. 

Next month I'm doing 2 craft shows and I'm ready to get back into the swing of things!
