I love swaps! I sent out a package last week & in my excitement I forgot to take pictures!
Luckily, the recipient, Caffeinatefrenzy on Ravelry, took a ton of photos & posted them.While my next batch of coffee is brewing, I thought I’d share (read: brag) about some of my goodies. I took sooo many pictures.
Everything was wrapped in polka dot paper :). This package had absolutely perfect timing. I threw a little tea party last night where I got all dressed up, and was able to use my new nail polish (these are like little stickers with bright flower designs on them, made out of nail polish. They smooth right onto your nails, and voila!), my new burt’s bee’s lip balm (the natural hue is absolutely perfect for my pale skin) and serve tea on my cute new coasters! I also cooked with my hot pink new spoons and measuring spoons.
And look at these little boxes! They were filled with gorgeous stitch markers she made herself, a pin, a keychain, some handmade face scrubbies.
The cowl she made me is in almost every photo I took, because, well, look at it. 🙂 (I wore that to my tea party, too!)
I haven’t even gotten to the deliciousness and all the handmades and fun little things yet, but I have to run off to work. But I felt this package deserved a thank you thank you thank you as soon as possible!
But wait, there’s more! 🙂 I’m probably not the easiest swappee, I have no blog, twitter, and am always deleting my facebook, and don’t post all that much on here. But firebrunette still nailed it!
Socks that match the scarf! And some gorgeous sock yarn in pink and a painted white/pink that coordinates. A lovely little notebook, marshmellows shaped like cupcakes, some mike and ikes, tootsie rolls, and some of them were wrapped in a cute little reusable pink bag.
She also made me a mug!
She also found a book filled with poetry/art and illustrations that I’ve been drooling over on amazon. It will definitely be great inspiration! And the coffee! I tried it for the first time this morning. It’s super fresh, brewed 3/29, and tastes amazing. I don’t typically put anything in good coffee but creamer, but those cupcake marshmellows, I couldn’t resist 🙂
