7:24 a.m.

No baby yet! Beautiful Groom had called me at 6:40 last night to tell me her water had broke and they were admitting beautiful bride...Almost 13 hours now...oh my goodness! He said they've been up all night and little Alexander just is not ready to come out yet! I'll keep you posted. By the way, all of these beautiful pictures of them were taken about two weeks ago....she is just a little pint size beauty and all baby belly!

Circus Swap...Well, Cup Cake DD sent me the most adorable package and she's received mine! So now I can give you a peek of what I sent her... A grungy primitive clown girl.
A circus trunk that copied her swap button to use for both sides on transparency.
(By the way, my new favorite thing!!! So cool! You know the transparency material that is clear and people place on an overhead projector for presentations? I have made so many cool things using this as copy material!!! You should give it a try, you will love it as much as I do, I promise!)
A resin clown that I found at Micheals Crafts. Blank resin that I painted and added the sign "Balance" all glittered and pretty...the picture really doesn't do it justice, but they never do...

A little duck pond. When I was little, I remember this was my favorite game, every ones always a winner!!! When you pick up the ducks they are each numbered for a prize...I wanted to hang a few miniature prizes from the duck pond banner, but I just ran out of time! Julie you could still add this element if you wanted, I think it would be so cute!
And then of course, lots of other goodies...clown glasses and nose (absolute necessity for a circus swap)
A miniature ring toss game, and a man on a tall tricycle that you can't see..A circus banner that I couldn't get a good pic of, and a colorful clown hat that was adorned with polka dots and crepe paper... This was the funnest swap ever! Thanks so much Julie!!!
Tomorrow hopefully I can post what I received from my partners... But for now, have a blessed day good citizens, its mad hatter time...

Hey Keke. I hope that sweet baby has arrived. This swap looks like it was a lot of fun. You just go all out! You should do a tutorial on the transparency. And the pick up duck booth you created is just so cute and creative.

I know you think I'm starting to make this stuff up but pick up ducks was my favorite too. We had a small town country fair that I loved and I always would drag my mom (and Dad too)straight to that game. I still remember her saying aren't you to big for that game. We're so much alike.
Love, Tracy
