    CastleQueen5,

    I'm putting my cards in the mail Friday. I thought it would be a little sooner but I got sidetracked. Anyway, they'll be sent from Illinois no later than Friday. Great swap!

    CastleQueen5,

    I just now saw the message about your husband being ill. Please do not worry about swapping on time. That should be the last thing on your mind. I will keep you and your husband in my prayers and pray for a full recovery. Hang in there.

    minibee1010 - if you are interested in this type of swap, there is another round running - see the link in my signature for details. It's an international swap, so it's a bit more expensive to play, and it's not quite as trashy (ha ha) but it's very similar. Check it out if you like!

    I have know my husband had cancer since July of 2017. I really dont plan to let this sidetrack me. I will swap on time. I just might not get on the computer as much. BUT I took the ipad to chemo today and it worked fine. So I gather, you might not even notice. He will be in the hospital for about 4 weeks. He will still be in there when the swap is due. I really can fit this into my life no problem. I really can. Honest. Crafting has been my sanity saver for all these years raising these 8 kids, some with special needs.

    Wow, Prex! You really know how to use trash! Your cards are beautiful! I would like to strongly hint to our hostess that I love your still life with pears... LOL

    I just wanted to say that another reason I love these T2T swaps is because of the people - I love it that everyone seems to get really into sharing their cards and how they used their trash, and that we also share what's going on in our lives, from the mundane to the really serious events we sometimes have to deal with. And all the wonderful hostesses who have hoarded trash on our behalf and cheered us on while we try to figure out how to use it. Thanks, everyone, I'm Nancy, and I'm addicted to trash...

    I would be thrilled to receive ANY of them, but those pears really knocked me out!

    I think what amazes me the most is the creative uses of the coconuts, and the bread ties. Oh and the produce labels. I mean that is some trash! and you really all of the folks found some super uses for some very bland items.

    I need to finish up some swaps I owe before I get trashy.
