    Hi Rosa! Enjoy your lurk. I actually got the idea for this swap from one of your swaps last year! One of the Bizarre Holidays was Frugal Fun day! I hope you decide to play!

    I was thinking reading. Going to the library is another, since you can borrow dvds and audio books, and even get free seeds to plant in your garden.

    I like hiking. Right here in my area of town, we have a mountain preserve area. (honestly we call it a mountain, you folks call them rocky hills). We give them name , Lookout Mountain, North Mountain, Shaw butte, Moon Mountain, etc, but they are still hills.

    I am on paperbackswap.com and I pay $20 a year as part of my perks. And that is part of my entertainment budget, and well worth it. Because we have virtual online book swap games, and we chat and we do book reviews.

    Postcards are another frugal activity. They are cheap to buy and cheap to send, and easy to collect because they are not too big.

    I know what I want to do for my last two I just don’t quite know if I am going to be able to do them. Technically, you know?

    Marie, we need to be friends on PBS so you can order all my books, so I can get them out of my house.

    Hhahaha I am azmom875 on PBS, I will go look for you over there. I live there it seems. Well here too.

    I could never get a house of cards to work, when I tried. It was a frugal and frustrating activity. Remember the Brady bunch doing the house of cards challenge? I loved that show. I like that you added a charm bracelet to the girl doing the house of cards.

    I agree about the charm bracelet- it is just a charming little detail, (no pun intended) and so natural-looking. The whole drawing is so well-done. Various hand positions are always a challenge for me!

    CQi just added you to my friends list on PBS. What do you do there? I usually just stop by to look for books?

    The charm bracelet is actually a nod to the Brady Bunch episode. Remember Marsha had a heart charm bracelet that made building the card house so hard for the girls team? That’s what inspired me to add the bracelet.

    Marie I will send you a PM, but there is a discussion and games section. We swap Wishlisted books. A tea swap, and even an audio book swapping group. We do it in a similar style of a white elephant/ Yankee swap you see around Christmas time.

    letter writing is frugal fun. Pen pals and the like. One of my cards is about letter writing.
