your summer plans and a swap







i am thinking about you, wondering what parts of summer your looking forward too. i am wondering if you pulled your favorite summer clothes from deep within the closet? i was wondering if you will be going somewhere that you never have gone before. i also thought how i wanted to do a swap. a handmade music cd. a postcard or two, and something that makes you happy. would like to join? if so leave a comment and on monday i will close the swap and email you your swapper. I am thinking we should try to put it in the mail around the 15th of june! i will give you more information when i email your partners information! I received music from fellow bloggers last year and playing it made happy- thought the same might make you happy!

* OOPS forgot to tell you to email me too!!! I will send you everything you need to know monday! oh and i love keeping things simple so come on join in!

Summer is very "here" in Florida, so I've put away my cooler weather wardrobe. I love the idea of some new music and always want an excuse to make cards. Count me in!

hi! new to your blog via pia, and would love to join! i'm very much in the mood to get away from technology (ah, such a love-hate relationship!) and share some goodies in the mail.

A swap sounds like fun... For vacation I'm going to Cape cod for the first time... stopping by Province Town and Boston!

Bonbon Oiseau said...

oh and yes--me. swap.

amy said...

Oh, fun, I've never done a swap--count me in!

As for the summer, I'm looking forward to some travel, spending some time with my folks, who I don't get to see often enough and who are getting on in years, and unscheduled days!

My summer plans include trying to find lots of art projects to keep my boys entertained.

I'd love to do a swap since I love sending funny Japanese items back to the states! (Don't worry. I have an american address so it's not hard to mail to me.)

as for summer, we have a trip to chicago on the calendar & a weekend at a mountain house too. leaving by the beach, i like my vacations northward!

Summer plans = none as yet but I like to think they'll happen eventually. Maybe even before the end of summer. :)

i'd love to swap nadia!

love these photos, reminds me of napping in the car on a road trip and opening my eyes, trying to focus. love, love this song. my summer is looking crazy...i am headed to the east coast in august.

Jamie said...

I want to play too! I love making small cards/pieces of art...

Hallie said...

I love that you love Devotchka too(they are so fun live). A swap is a terrific idea. Please count me in.
My summer plan is to escape from a big city to a smallish city. I will ride bike, play with my god daughter, hike through the countyside and maybe eat lots of cheese and frozen custard all with a very dear (and moved away) friend.

Charly said...

I've been admiring your blog from afar for a little while...I would love to participate in a swap!!

Valentina said...

Dearest Nadia, I love that this will be my very first swap! We will be spending a month back home with my parents and my sister's family. I look forward to big family meals under the trees and plenty of board games and movie nights. Since I live half a world away from them this is a commitment to see each other every few years so my kids will know their grandparents and cousins.
Depending on how many players we get for the swap, I would also love to send all of you a postcard from my adopted home of Cyprus. This way we all get to go somewhere exotic even for a few moments...

lana bear said...

yes please! I've pulled out my shorts and tanks, and I'm also booking a trip to xcalak today. remote mexican beach a few miles from the belize border. yummm

fleur_delicious said...

what a great idea! I'd love to play, but can't; I'm booked with two twenty-page papers, an international conference, and a LOT of grading to do before June 15. It'll be fun to read about others' experiences, though!

Erika said...

I'm looking forward to my first summer off since about grade 8. Looking forward to picnics at the beach, riding my bicycle, and sipping iced tea with friends.

Oh - and I'm in for the swap! Sounds like fun!

oni said...

Tammy said...

Your posts about the swap are so inviting, I felt invited! I'd love to do this. My first one! Thank you.

phoebe marie said...

this summer, i'm looking forward to meeting up with my not-husband on tour at least once, and hopefully more. summertime is hard, as he's usually gone more than he is home. but visits make it a little easier.
but anyhow, YES! i want to join your swap. i emailed you as well, as you requested. :)
happy summer!
xxo, phoebe marie

Laurel said...
