I really need to start sewing again, looking at all these gifts!  I have a couple of patterns for fabric bowls.  Are they quick to make?  How do you ladies with kids find the time!

Grin  Mink, I can't believe how big Noah is!  Of course, he was in his stroller the whole time when we met before...but he was still a little baby..now he looks like a toddler!

I love how unique the packages are.  Lots of similar things but seeing them in so many different patterns and colours is fun! 

And yeah....just in case anyone is wondering, I'm still very pregnant.  Grrrrr....

Ok, here's the photos of my amazingly fantastic box from Linnybelle! Labels of each item are on the photos. I love every bit of it and was completely spoiled on this swap. Love the reusable bags - especially great for using self-check-out as they fit over the little stands. Smiley I'm planning to temporarily repurpose the coupon organizer to hold and organize travel brochures and receipts for my summer trips - then it will go back to coupons in the fall. THANKS SO MUCH!

(I used to work at a zoo, so I loved the zoo map wrapping paper - I unfolded them all carefully and taped the map back together - lol!)

Scraps for my hammies - although not all will end up with them most likely...

An old science book - probably will end up as greeting cards...and maybe a cover for my interactive notebooks next year.

Some fabric for quilting.

A big, thick envelope full of paper scraps for my cards and scrapbooks.

A fabulous coin purse and coupon (travel brochure) holder...love the jewel tone sewing fabric!

And the BEST bags ever...jewel tones that I love and maps because I love to travel!


THANKS AGAIN LINNYBELLE!

I tried to cut the map as carefully as possible, so you could see our zoo.  I'm glad you liked everything.  It was a fun package to put together.  I also do some Iris Folding too, so I'm glad the papers will work for that.

I really like the tie water bottle holder.  That's such a clever idea.  The little fabric box is great too.  There's so many cool ideas in this swap, it's fun to see all the different versions.

Ooooh, I love that map bag!  If I ever see map fabric, I'll want some to make a bag like that, too. Cheesy

Such lovely and generous yet frugal packages!

I really like the tie bottle bag and the child apron is adorable!(so is the cutie pie modeling it!)

All of the baby items are so practical and cute! 

I liked the budget pages as well..

Lots of talented and ingenious swappers here...
