Awesome Swap Package!


Hello Everyone!!

I hope you all are having a fabulous week, so far.

Mine sure has been hectic!

I'm looking so forward to Friday and No School!!

And yes, I know its only Tuesday, but I'm seriously ready for this school year to be over with.

Maybe it’s because it has been so warm, so fast, it puts me in the Summer mood, with so much going on, and not in the mood to deal with the school routine.

I know my daughter sure is ready to be out, too!! :)

Okay, I'm getting off subject…

As some of you may know, I recently hosted an envelope swap and my partner was Tiff of Folded Gingham.

I received my goodies in yesterday’s mail.


Tiff spoiled me too much!!!

No, not complaining just stating fact. Hehee! :)

Check out all these wonderful surprises….

See, I told you… AWESOME!!!!

Included in my package was this hand woven coverlet, a black box (she said to store some of my sewing supplies in), a braided mat, a prim towel, three star magnets, a Moose Cookie cutter (Heehee!! So Cute! We both collect cookie cutters.)…

Cross stitch fabric (she knows this is something I am trying to learn), a tomato tape measure, embroidery thread, a wonderful prim sheep she made to hold the thread, a wonderful stitchery pin cushion (which she also made) and it came with little scissors attached.

Nope, still not all…

Three handmade, by Tiff, prim chocolate bunnies!!!

Love them.  I was just thinking the other day that I didn't have any Easter decorations, Now I Do!!!

A wooden tote….

Now, some of the awesome goodies are going to be used in my sewing room.  I haven't had time to get them into place, mainly because that room is a Mess right now.

But here are a few photos of some of my displayed treasures.

I have the wonderful pin keep displayed with my small collection in my foyer.

Thank you soooo much Tiff for all the amazing goodies!!

And if you are wondering,

“How did she fit all of this in an envelope?”

Well, she didn’t.

She bent the rules a bit and sent them in a box.  ;)

I want to also thank all the wonderful ladies that joined in on the swap.

I have loved seeing what everyone received.

If I, somehow, have missed your post sharing your goodies, Please let me know, and I will be sure to pop right over.

I do follow all the swappers, but with Google acting up, sometimes posts don't show up in the reader, and Nope, I still don't have my blog roll back. Gggrrr!!

I don't want to miss out on seeing anyone's goodies, so please drop me a line if I haven't commented on it yet.

Take Care and Talk Soon!!

Good morning Tam~
Your friend sent some absolutely awesome goodies to you! Truly love them all and your displays are wonderful too.
Glad you cleared that up about the envelope! Though I didn't participate, I've been reading others that have and thought, "wow, that's some envelope!" lol
It's all good! I bend the rules sometimes too. Have a hard time sending just a few things for swaps.
Enjoy your day!
