I fancy doing a matchbox swap and have looked around in blogland but a lot of them seem to be monthly swaps and to begin with I'd just like to do one - so anyone want to join in with me???

Make one matchbox and we'll swap with one partner

The theme is BIRDS as its spring and easter is almost upon us.

Leave your name if you'd like to join in - cut off date for signing up will be 8th April.

I have lots and lots of goodies - after bemoaning the fact that I haven't had new stash in ages I treated myself to some goodies from Emma's Paperie - don't know what it is about this blog and shop but it always inspires me to buy buy buy. Here's the lovely box I received yesterday - all wrapped up in beautiful tissue paper - it was like an early birthday for next month!

Here's a close-up of the papers - can't wait to get my hands on them.

If this lot doesn't inspire me to get scrapbooking again I don't know what will. My daughter is 21 next year, my son is 18 - and I'll be 50 - three excuses for some new scrapbooks!

Check out Julia's blog here to see what everyone else is up to.

Its the first of the month today and I'm going to be giving away a piece of Magickdiva art to one of my followers. My first problem though is how do I find out their blog addresses? Can anyone help? When I click on their name it says I need to sign in or belong to the group. Help!

I've been chuckling away today listening to Radio 2 where they've been playing an April Fools joke with the alternative Ken Bruce - quite amusing. Its hubby's 50th Birthday today - and he loved the Family album I made him - simple things - not hubby you understand!

I've had some lovely post today. This gorgeous bookmark was from a bookmark swap I hosted on UK Stampers. Mine was from Zoe and you check out her blog here . Thanks so much Zoe - I love love it.

I also received some lovely tags from the Craftymess tag swap - its so nice to receive lovely post.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their help with the rubber stamp sticky problem - a quick wipe with a damp cloth did the trick.
