spring ephemera swap... a pretty mess?

I was chuckling about my friend Elyse's Pretty Messy post today on her blog Cottage. Sometimes I like pretty messes, and sometimes I'm pulling my hair out wishing the messes would just go away.

As I was knee deep organizing the Spring Ephemera Swap packages for the lovely participants, I'll admit I felt overwhelmed:
... but now that it's all said and done, and the packages are happily on their way to the participants' mailboxes, I can look back at the mess...
and call it a pretty one.
It didn't feel like it at the time though!
Dare I wish you what Elyse wished her followers at the end of her post???


...I'll say this- if you have the stamina for it, "happy mess-making!" ;)
