Swap Goodies and it’s 521 Lake Street’s birthday!


First and foremost…..on this the 13th anniversary of a terrible day for our country…


We need to be vigilant and not let this ever happen again!  We need to pray for guidance and strength for the leaders of this United States of America, and their ability to keep us a strong nation!



I was lucky enough to join Linda’s last Swap for All Seasons 2014 monthly swap. 

I had a wonderful partner named Lorraine and she spoiled me rotten!

We were to send a card, a tag and some orange bling….she went way overboard!  Thank you Lorraine!  See what I mean….

The retro feel and the wonderful cherry colors are perfect! 

And look at all of this wonderful bling!

Brand new Epson Work Force 3640!  My HP died after 7 years, I thought it had a good run.  I asked quite a few paper crafters what their choice was for a good all around color printer and this Epson won the vote!  I even set this up with the help of my buddy Marci…all by ourselves, and wireless even! lol  Proud of both of us…

I am sorry I have not been around much, it has been a rough summer for me….but I can see the end in sight….take care, and thanks for stopping by….Joyce your package will be leaving here soon, and the same with yours Erica….thanks for being my swap partners!


OH!  I just realized today is 521 Lake Street’s 5th Birthday!


The time has gone by so fast!  I just love and respect  the people I have met and become friends with via this blog.  The ability to write my what was on my heart whether it was happy or sad, and feeling supported.  And of course, sharing all of our vintage and holiday fun!  THANK YOU ALL!!!!!






Happy 5th Blog Birthday :)
Very sweet card, tag and goodies from Lorraine. It is feeling like fall the 50's...

Happy 5th blogging anniversary, Sandy! (I think I started in 2009 too - I'll have to see when DUH)

I'm so sorry you've been having a tough time! This summer has been a challenge for me too.

Hoping your days become brighter right away!

Lorraine is a wonderful partner...her work is exquisite! I'm glad you joined us in the last month. I will be watching for your package 😊.
I hope you like your Epson as much as I love mine. I was a diehard Canon user but the Epson really has better color for the vintage images we both love!
Happy Anniversary !! Here's to many more years of blogging fun!
