Okay...prepare yourself for the awesomeness.
First of all, I'm not sure how many of you are familiar with "The Most Interesting Man in the World", but Missing Willow is his female counterpart.
She has quite the resume of unusual and - well - INTERESTING past jobs and of course presently lives a life that I can only dream of. Seems we have quite a few things in common though and I am just tickled pink to have her as my partner for this swap. Okay, on with the show!
Here's the shot of the whole she-bang. TWO boxes full to the brim!!
Notice all the cute handmade bags that all my goodies came packaged in!!
Here's "something from her favorite store - CafePress. A mug with her farm logo on it!
And something she thinks smells good - beeswax candles - from her very own bees!
Now comes something she carries in her purse which is really four somethings and came with a funny story about her and cackle - another awesome craftster! A Notebook for great ideas and recipes, index cards to write down gift ideas for family and friends throughout the year, Dr.Pepper Lip Smackers and an adorable business card holder!!
A kitchen essential is a shiny new ladle and something edible is two glorious , blue ribbon winning jars of homemade jam. You may notice that one jar is missing...I wonder where it went....
Something for organization - some handy dandy little containers - I love little boxes of any kind so these were a thrill - lol!
A summer essentioal is this beautiful beach towel - can't imagine why she chose birds!
Check out these Bride of Frankenstein earrings - representing her favorite holiday - HALLOWEEN! I will, however, be sporting these year round.
I didn't get an individual shot of the "essential to your favorite craft" butterfly fabric - but you can see it in the group shot - and something with her favorite animal on it was a sheep (she raises them) on a punch needle kit. I've never tried this before but I will soon!! And something drinkable is this delicious looking tea - yum!
I also got a bonus of a packet of heirloom tomato seeds - so exciting especially because tomatoes seem to be the only thing I can grow with any sort of success around here!
PHEW! I told you this was awesome - thanks a million MissingWillow - this was just too great!!!!
