Yay! I received from donniesgirl and she sent an amazing package. It's all so spiffy. It came packed with pages from a magazine as stuffing. I'm still debating whether I want to take the time to flatten them out to use for paper beads or not. But it's a very frugal way to do packing!
First up is a great dish towel and trivet/potholder made with a great batiked-feel fabric with turtles! These are the best colors ever. The towel is what everything is sitting on in the above picture and it has that line of colored fabric across one end.
She sent me some lovely cloth napkins that I have already started using. The brightly colored ones are now sitting at my desk at work. They are awesome.
Here are the great utensil rolls she made for my son and I. The lizard one is going to be mine and the red is my sons. Wonderful and just want I wanted. My son loves his too. Each has a napkin with it as well.
Donniesgirl also sent some great food items. There is homemade granola, onion soup mix (which I think is going to be dinner tomorrow), and dried sage. And they are all marked with Gnome labels!
Last but not least is this great candle. I've made them with glass jars before, but never thought about using a wineglass. I think I'm going to have to copy this idea. It will give me a reason to indulge in shopping for them.
She also sent a sewing book since I am truly in awe of people with those skills. I've glanced through it in the brief time I have free and it looks awesome. Also included was a CD with a David Ramsey program, a cookbook and a craft book she made from another swap. Excellent!
Thank you so much for a great swap!
