coffee + cre8tive {aug 16 '06}

I skipped a day of blogging yesterday since I'm on bed rest trying to heal this injury - I need to be up and running by the time we leave for Germany in 4 weeks. It's so hard to rest right now when I have so much to do. It's driving me crazy to be in bed! You know how it is right before vacation.

Speaking of far off places, I'm having a lot of fun organizing the international magazine swap, and I hope to have more in the future, which I'll post on the blog later this year. I started off thinking I'd have two sets of 10, 10 domestic and 10 international. Little did I know that decor8 has a lot of international readers! I thank each and every one of you for writing to me and for signing up. I have 21 domestic and 20 international, so we need ONE more international swapper if anyone would like to participate, please email me. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm regarding this swap!

Back soon with fresh finds!
