On Saturday May 3 I went to a shoebox swap in Centerville. For the swap, I had to design a card and bring all the cut pieces and supplies for all the other ladies to make the card too. They would do the same, so when we got together we would all make a bunch of stuff to take home. It was tons of fun, and I got to learn new techniques. We also had a card swap of completed cards, a name tage contest (which I won), and door prizes (if you bring a door prize you get to pick a door prize when your name is drawn). There was a potluck lunch.
It didn't show in the pictures well, but the jack-o-lantern on my name tag lights up thanks to a tiny LED light. The plates are glass etched. I wanted to put them on here because I worked so hard on it all.
I had a great time and am looking forward to the next one that will take place here in Utah county. Since my friend Amy is hosting, I'll even get to help plan!
