Now I deffinatley am worried that I have not done enough, that is a fab parcel!!! You are have been spoilt!

Don't worry.  My partner and I decided on a set budget and I was lucky enough to find some super deals.  As long as you stuck with what you and your partner agreed to you'll be great!  Smiley

The budget was SUCH a great idea!!!!!!!  Dollar stores, yard sales/flea markets, and coupons are always my best friend, but even more so while keeping to a budget and still trying to spoil someone!   Grin

I still can't get over all the wonderful goodies we got!  It felt like Christmas!  LOL!

Be ready to be jealous everyone.  I recieved from MandyLikesPie today.  It was waiting for me to get home from work tonight.  Wasn't supposed to work but got called in for today and tomorrow.  What a nice suprise to have a package waiting for me when I got home.
First off I open the box and find everything wrapped in this nice piece of material and tied with a bow with a note sitting on top.



The Basket as Mandy and I decided to actually do baskets for each other.  A pink bunny dish scrubber and a pink bunny note pad. 




The bunny scrubber and then egg shaped playing cards, they will sit by my bed as I love to play solitaire while I watch TV, when I get tired of knitting.  and an Easter wreath with little eggs on it and ribbon to hang it with.  Love it Mandy



I think my favorite is the two chocolate easter bunnies but one is not edible.  He is adorable and will sit on my bed.  Thanks Mandy I love him.



Next was a small embroidered table scarf with a rabbit.  Such nice work, one of the things I have no patients for.  This will be used for many years to come. And a crocheted Carrot pouch that is just adorable and an embroidered book mark with my name on it.  That will get alot of use as I love to read.



Everything all together including somemore chocolate, Reeses Peanut Butter eggs actually all gone as I type this,  Starburst jelly bean egg, and my favorite, Cadbury eggs.  Thank you MandyLikesPie you are a great swap partner and I love it all.  You Made my day.

You're very welcome, grahairedoldlady! (I feel bad calling you that even though it's your name.  Cheesy) I'm so glad you like everything and that you can use it! I didn't think you'd receive until today, so what a nice surprise for me to wake up this morning and see photos. I had so much fun making everything (especially the bunny and the carrot pouch) and putting it together. It was a struggle to get it all to fit into the basket, so the presentation wasn't as nice as it could have been. I needed a bigger basket.  Grin I hope you enjoy it all!
