My Finished bracelet

Hello, I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted. My father was hospitalized and had to have surgery, so I have been busy taking care of my parents, making meals for them and taking my Dad to Doctor appointments, shopping for them. He is doing well, which we are so relieved. I want to share swaps that I have done with the Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group over the past couple of months. The first swap was hosted by Laura, it was an Altered Bottle Swap. My partner was Melanie. The next swap was a Vintage Button Brooch swap hosted by Melanie, my partner was Thespa. The Third was a Perfume Bottle Charm Swap hosted by Rhonda , we made 20 charms and sent them to her and she swapped them out and you receive 20 charms in return and this is the bracelet that I made with mine. Thank you so much for visiting me today and I hope you have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri

Gosh we have missed you! I am sorry to hear about your father's illness. I hope he is doing much better by now. I was wondering how you were doing.
All your swaps are fabulous! The perfume bottle you created is magnificent! Really! Everyone's creations are amazing. These were some awesome swaps!
So good to hear from you!

Christy said...'s so good to hear from you. I hope that your father continues to improve and that your days are once again a little less hectic.

Your swaps are beautiful and I'm in awe of your little perfume bottle braclet. Gorgeous!

Take care of yourself and post when you can.

What a group, Terri. I love to see what the MA women create! You always manage to find some topic that is so fascinating and create gorgeous things. I love it all. That bracelet is terrific. It would be fun to wear. Above all I am so glad that your father is doing fine. It sounds like you are very busy helping and taking care of your parents. I am guessing it is work you are happy to do but it can be hard work, too.
Big hugs,

Hi Terri, I'm glad to hear that your dad is doing better, I didn't know he had to go in the hospital. It's tough taking care of them when they are down. Big hugs to you!
