Just A Bit on Our New Friends...

My sweet sister Donna asked me to do a post on the new girls in our Fall Swap. Sorry to call you new girls, "NEW GIRLS," but we are excited about having some newbies to our bit Fall fun.

Okay, so I will just give you a little bit of info, still trying to keep their privacy intact.

Amy--she is a friend of both Dolly and Hannah. According to Dolly, "Amy is a gem and if she lived near us girls she would just fit right in." Dolly has only the best things to say about Amy and her sweet parents. And, I found out today that in Amy's recent past, she lived not too far from us! Amy has a blog if you want to learn more about her. Click on her name in the comment section of the Sept. 23 post for the link to her blog.

Noelle--she is a friend of Caroline's. I don't know a whole lot about Noelle. I believe she is a graduate of LU, which me likie and, Hello...let's just say she lives in a very cool place!

Karin--she is my friend. I met Karin about a year ago on the football field. Our son's were on the same team. Karin went to LU also. Karin is a photographer and has taken many of my families pictures. Her website is

Laura--she is a friend of Inger. From what I can tell Laura and Inger are like two peas in a pod. She appears to be very crafty. She told me via email that just recently she moved from where she had lived for the past 38 years and is now in a new state. Wow, that's a good wife!

This swap has been fun. There have been so many questions going back and forth from so many of you, wanting to get to know your person. That is sweet! Anyway, I think I sent all the correct information to each of you. If there is something else you need, just let me know.

So the first gift has been sent. Donna sent Laura her gift today. That Donna--always on the ball. Alllllways on the ball!
