Change

Change is all around us. Most of it we can't control. Some we can. I have had a lot of both in my life lately and I'm learning to embrace it. As my life is taking a new direction I decided it was time to take the blog down a new path as well. I will be posting a travel journal of sorts to document our simple journeys and I would love to share it with you. Welcome!

Pennant Swap!

Let's do another pennant swap, shall we?

First we had the Dream Pennant Challenge.
Then we had the Spring Pennant Challenge.
In March, we had the Hats, Handbags & Heels Pennant Swap.






I think it's past time for another, how about you?

When I tell you the theme, you may laugh or furrow a puzzled brow--but hear me out.

Take a look around your house at the fragrance names for your shower gel, body lotion, even dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent and fabric softener. Have you ever noticed how lovely the words are that are used to describe them?

Dancing waters
Moonlight path
Rain-kissed Leaves
Ocean Breeze
Pure Rain
Tahitian Renewal
White Rose
Renewing Rain
Mountain Spring
Meadows & Rain
Amethyst Mist
Moonlight Garden
White Tea & Pearls
Summertime Showers

Don't those sound positively inspiring? Because that will be the inspiration for our pennant swap! Look around your house or the supermarket aisles and choose a fragrance phrase for your pennants' theme. This is to be from the products mentioned, not perfume, but everyday household items.

Here's how it will work:

Everyone that wants to participate will create 5 coordinating pennants in the fragrance phrase theme of your choice When your pennants are finished, you will mail 4 of them to me and keep one for yourself. Get them in the mail by September 2. After I've received all the pennants, I will randomly select 4 new ones to return to you. We will each have work from 4 different artists with which to create a unique banner!

To keep the size uniform, I have prepared a template that I will email to you. Let me know via comment or email if you want to participate. In the same email with the template I will also send you my mailing address.
My email address is: elsie_lisa(at)hotmail(dot)com

I am very excited about the swap and hope you decide to play along. Please consider this post your personal invitation!

This just sounds too cool for school! I def want to join in the fun! Our minds run in similar venues...just today I was looking at nail polishes and thinking how thought provoking some of the names were. I must go to the grocery store Monday morning and peruse all the aisles for fragrance descriptions!

I like this idea! I'll try to do it but I didn't bring most of my supplies to camp. I knew I was just going to be doing the journal so have mostly paints and no embellishments. So, my pennants will be a bit different, that's for sure.

I'm kicking myself for not checking your blog before I went up for that funeral yesterday because I could have picked up a few things.

Have you seen the header on my blog? I love it! Thanks, again!

Ooooh, I LOVE banners, and this is right up my alley! (I need to go look at my household things; I'm thinking some of those room sprays will have cool names!) Please count me in! :)
