I GOT MY BOX!!!!!
well I know you are all excited to see my lovely new things so I will get started.
My partner is Miss Barbara and she has totally spoiled me. I will warn you that reading this post may cause everyone swap anxiety but you should all know that Miss Barbara and I had agreed ahead of time to do more then the required three items so Nobody Freak Out!!
So here is my daughter Sofia and I getting our first peak It the box and yes it is really that full!!
Ok we very carfully laid everything out.
The two big brown boxes are like mini swap boxes for my daughters. That's right you heard me there are two extra swap boxes inside my big swap box. I let Sofia go first
In Sofias box she got some princess stickers, a blue angel bell, a strawberry pen a crocheted pouch with candy (more on that later) a birthday card (her birthday is the 9th) and a cute picture that one of Barbara's daughters made and a crocheted pink and white scarf with butterflies on the ends.
I got to go next, first two paper bookmarks and two crocheted ones. Then some crochet flowers they are on pins so I can use them where ever.
Next some seed starter pots, (I love gardening) some cute notepads, and these cute magnets that are just like the ones on my Wist.
Now these are really interesting, they are little crocheted envelopes that have candy inside them. I got one and Sofia got one so you can see the front and back in this picture. They fold close with a little button.
Some more flowers and some material for my sewing. And these nifty fingerless gloves. I could be a hand model
and a lovely green hat.
The first is two potholders in my kitchen colors. They are already hanging on my hooks. And some postcard and pictures from NY. Also a collection of shells and things from the coast. What Barbara didn't know is that I also collect sea glass.
Thank you Barbara!!
And my Favorite of all!!
This Big Green Soft Scarf, hmmmmm. Its perfect.
I will give you one guess as too what my favorite color is!
But wait there is more. We have to wait for Isabel to get up from her nap so she could open her box.
She got a cute bunny stuffed animal, a rubber duck, a crocheted blanket with a cute little head on it. And my Second favorite of all. This really sweet hat.
Oh my Gosh isn't that the cutest!!
So THANK YOU Miss Barbara you were a great partner and I cant wait to get your box out to you (Im almost finished).
This whole swap thing was a blast. I told Miss Barbara that its really special to have someone you barely know put so much time and care in to making you a gift.
Cant wait to see everyone else's
