Here is an action shot of my new draft dodger put in place under my computer ( see all the messy cords....) there is a serious draft under there and my feet are always cold.  Not any more!

And here is a shot of my new bags, loaded up with goodies after shopping


I used my sunny yellow dishcloth this morning and hung it to dry next to mr duckie -


Here is a shot of my stamp collection ready to hand over for makin' money:

I love that holder.

Lastly, a silly shot of my scrubbie.  Gabe stole it momentarily to pretend he is a Rastafarian.

Baby is here - at long last!!

Okay, I am finally posting photos of the loot I got from mink_bikini on Monday.  The shopping bags have already been put to use and I've been showing off everything else (I wonder if my family gets annoyed with me showing off all my awesome swap stuff? Wink).  The taggie I got for the baby was going to be set aside to wait for his or her arrival, but I let my youngest play with it a bit and was amazed at how long he stayed entertained with it - and he's 19 months old!

Anyway, here's a group shot with nearly everything:

Top to bottom, left to right: recipe book (something mysteriously spilled on it already!), zipper pouch that I will probably keep my breast pads in when I'm nursing and out of the house, rice sock primarily for soothing myself when I'm breastfeeding - either in the beginning or if I end up getting infections again (which suck!), five sets of reusable breast pads, set of handmade cards, two of the four shopping bags, still folded up, card case, Diva cup bag (I love the triangular shape and the colours!), notebook for keeping track of shopping lists and price comparisons, cloth pad patterns and instructions.

The baby stuff (taggie toy and cute hat) and one of the bags unfolded:


Awkward self-portrait with the sweet hat mink made for me after seeing one like it on my wists.  She had the hat and added the ribbon.  I love it!!


Thanks again for everything, mink_bikini!! This was such a fun swap and you were a fabulous partner!!

Wow!  This gallery just keeps getting better and better. Smiley  I love that hat!

(Also, when I stated earlier that send-outs were Friday ... I was wrong.  Send-outs are on SATURDAY.  Sorry!)

I know - it's a cute one, isn't it?  Dreadlocklove made an adorable crocheted elf hat for me in the random swap and I bet it would be super cute in an adult size.
