ANOTHER Mystery Box and Weekend Swarm pix

Sorry no cards today. I've been busy creating, but of course I have to wait to post. I sure wish I could get caught up enough to do some things just for the heck of it (I say that every week LOL) but as usual I'm running behind. I was very excited to find another Mystery Box from Custom Crops on my doorstep. Obviously Jezzie is too. I can't reveal the contents yet, but if you remember our last Mystery Box challenge, there are 7 items, both craft and non-craft, and we must use all of the items in some way in our project. Stay tuned. If you missed my last Mystery box challenge project click HERE.

I thought it also would be fun to post the pix from our weekend SWARM the weekend of Oct. 24th. A neighbor of Leah's parents was kind enough to let us use her second home in Discovery Bay so off we went. We had a big slumber party! Here we are hard at work.
Lakisha gave Sandy, Jen and I a BIA demo.
Cody was more interested in his two thumbs. LOL
Happy hour on the back deck.
Happy Mom and her sweet boy! Thanks so much Leah for setting this all up and to Colleen for generously donating her home.

  9. Donna, that looks fantastic, what an amazing location to have a swarm!! I'm so jealous, it's a bit different to the usual church hall type venues you usually get. Thanks for sharing the pics.
