I am feeling totally spoiled by my swap partner Mary, aka angelofmusic! She really outdid herself!
First of all, she wrapped everything in pretty paper and ribbons with stickers for each letter of my name (she even included the "G" since I go by Lori G!). She also included a bunch of yarn and the biggest knitting needles I have ever seen.
PLUS she spelled my name a second time in CANDY! L is for lemon drops (they are sugar free, which is perfect for my pre-diabetic husband), O is for orange slices, R is for Razzles (first it's candy, then it's gum!), I is for Icebreakers Mints, and G is for GIANT lollipop! My son has already claimed it for himself, but he's gonna have to pry it away from me.
Here's a pic of my son opening one of the packages:
L is for LITTLE Green Scrubbie -- crocheted out of cotton yarn and recycled plastic bags for the scrubbie part. Ingenious!
(pic shows cards, magnets and the scrubbie)
O is for OLD-Fashioned Dishcloths -- so pretty!
R is for REALLY Scary Monster Tote for my son -- the cutest thing ever!! The puzzle piece fabric is so adorable, and the mouth has slots for crayons (and the crayons stick out like sharp teeth!). She also filled it with a couple of coloring books.
I is for ITTY-Bitty Magnets to add to my ever-growing magnet collection -- with cute things like frying pans and Legos. Love them!
G is for GIFT Cards -- beautifully decorated with flowers. Gorgeous and handy!
I love everything so much! I only hope angelofmusic is not disappointed by my package. I was encouraged when I saw her return address label:
So I know I was on the right track.
