I have been so thrilled with my experiences
with the Art Charm swap the past two years.
It's really getting to me not knowing if
I can participate this year.
Yep still no word on when our stuff will arrive from Oki.
Though all the stuff they stored for us for 4 years arrives tomorrow.
I know my neighbors will be thrilled because the lawn mower is in that shipment.
Please join in if you have the time.

Click the buttons on the sides here for Art Charm 2012 and Art Charm 2013 for my previous reveal posts. I introduced my connection to the charity in the 2012 post. Jennifer let me use one her photos to make the 2013 button image. I know it's trivial, but I was so glad to help her out. She puts in a ton of work to make this annual charity auction and swap a success as well as a smashing good time.
I really feel like I'm missing the annual family Thanksgiving dinner or something.
