Gifts and Swaps

"Why do you get the fun stuff in the mail and all I get is school books?" says, Material Girl.
What can I say?
They're the gifts you get for spending a ridiculous amount of time blogging every evening.
Betty at She's Sew Pretty swapped me this for a charm. I sent along a bit more because I was getting the best end of the deal! I have been lusting over her pin cushions for some time. She too has an etsy shop. We both turned 49 around the same time so it was a good reason to swap.

This cute little guy came sometime ago from Michelle at 3rd Eye Muse. I love Michelle, she was one of the RED Party artists this year.

The Lucy and Shawnees from Sassy flirty apron swap has everyone paired up with secret partners. Jody, from Jodybob quilts, was my secret partner that sent me this RED apron, sweets, romance novel and tissue. Do you think the book might be a tear jerker?

I can't tell you who my partner is yet, but she said she like batiks.

This is the apron I sent her.

Heidi set up the Very Vintage Valentine swap. My swap partner Trish from "Wis can son" who sent me this wonderful Valentine basket.
Trish has a fun etsy shop also.
Here is the Valentines box I sent off to her.

And to think I still have two more swaps to do?
What was I thinking?
Oh, that's right, another way to drive my teenage daughter crazy.
Me getting gifts and not school books! ...hee hee hee.

Oh, I'd say you've been getting some fabulous mail!
Looks like you've also been SENDING some--if there are daughters at your swap partners' houses, you can be sure that they will be jealous too!

I received a package in the mail today and it was so much more fun than school books - I received my apron and LOVE it. It is absolutely awesome.
Thank you so much!
