I received from Shannin today! I was so excited to open it! I got some great stuff.





I got this awesome cook book with all recipes that only require four ingredients! How cool. I cant wait to start using them. She sent me this great notebook to keep track of all my stuff. It's actually really cool. I was reading the inside and apparently it is 100% recycled and made in the US. It even has a number on the back cover that you can type into their website to see where the paper your book is made from came from originally. I'm a dork but this is the info on my book http://ecosystemlife.com/ingredients/eco_ingredients/detail/?lk_cat_type_token=a&pin=fm00506bo. I also got some awesome crocheted washcloths. I love the color scheme so much. Shannin even included the pattern she used because she saw I crochet too! You can see in the photo I already started making another one on my own ha ha! And lastly she sent me a hook roll made out of the most incredibly beautiful damask fabric and polka dots on the inside. Wowww! I'm so pleased Smiley

Where did you get that vintage floral material? I remember my Mom having something like that in our kitchen when I was younger.

I found it at a flea market a couple years ago while it was in its former state as a tablecloth. Tongue
Not sure where else you could find fabric like that.  The retro floral is coming back in style though!

I love retro fabrics. Thanks again Cakie  Smiley

I love that pantry organizer thing!  Is it made out of something that's wipeable?

Yup it's made out of an old dry erase board from the looks of it.

No it's not made to my specific pantry, but it does seem to have everything that I normally have. I was reading through the list and kept going "oh I should buy some of that to have on hand, oh I never thought of those yeah I should get those too" lol.

Yay! I am glad you like your package. Cheesy I was getting a little nervous seeing all the huge packages on here. I wish I could have spent more time on it but school keeps me pretty busy. Sad

I LOVE that pantry organizer!!! I have a wipe erase board in our board game closet that barely gets any use so I am so going to make one of these today if I can find enough cute colored sharpies, if not its off to walmart for me later.

omg i so need one of those pantry organizers! what "recipe" did you use to make that? the BF is always buying doubles so i have like 10 cans of tuna 2 boxes of crackers and noodles and not sauce or mix lol

hi!  so glad you (and others who have commented) like it - thank you!! Smiley  

To make the list, I just used what I keep in my own pantry/freezer (I'm a total organization freak).  

I wanted to tailor it to lady4feet's needs but I didn't want to tip her off to what I was making Wink so I just had to hope she could use everything on the list! Smiley   Sounds like it was helpful anyway, eh L4F?  Glad you are thinking of more things from seeing the list! I kept thinking, "I should leave some extra room on here for stuff she may use that I didn't think of" but then my list was just too long!!!

It is made from a dry erase board I had on hand but had never used.  I used different colored sharpies for all the food groups and wrote everything out in permanent ink.  That way, if you make check marks with the dry erase marker you can rub them off but the list still stays on.

I received from imafundork a few days again, but I'm horrible & didn't post pictures right away. Sorry imafundork! I love everything!!

I got: a file folder of frugal tips, a Family Fun magazine with frugal tips, crafts & recipes, a coupon organizer - with coupons!!, a beautiful soap saver & yummy soap, 2 wool dryer balls (in use constantly since I got them!), a peanut sling carrier from a thrift store (it's a small so it doesn't fit me yet, but I'm still losing pregnancy weight so I think it'll be in use lots by summer!), wonderful citrusy "paper" towels (I love this fabric!), and 4 placemats with coordinating napkins & plastic forks!





Thanks so much imafundork! I love it all!! Smiley
I love this swap! Smiley

I love the fabric on those placemats. I think I'll have to make some for picnics this summer.

I also love family fun magazine. I got a free subscription and I'm ALWAYS tearing out craft/game/recipe ideas from it!
