Favorite Color Swap 2014.jpg

My package arrived today full to the top.  As you can guess purple is my favorite color.  Thank you so much Tiffer.  I really enjoyed being your partner in this swap.  It was fun having a chance to get to know you.  It was hard to get it all in one shot so as for the goodies:

 

I got a complete Springfield outfit including dress, shoes, and bag for my Christmas donation.  I am so thrilled.  I never seem to have enough in November!!!

 

2 of the cutest purple button containers I have ever seen.  The tops are buttons.

 

Purple Needle Nest and Yarn Needles

 

4 very pretty purple shades of Vanna's choice.

 

A very nice purple notions box

 

A handmade Hook Book

 

Purple Pen

 

Travel Kit

 

Spa Bag with lots of purple spa items

 

A Purple Glue Gun

 

Water Bottle

 

A Purple Owl

 

A Journal

 

A purple lollipop

 

and a very thoughtful handwritten card.

 

I can't wait to see what you think of your package.

I'm so glad it made it to you and that you like it! This is one of my favorite swaps because it gives me a chance to get out of my own comfort zone with colors and try to find things that I hope compliment the tastes of my partner in their favorite colors. It has been such a pleasure chatting with you and getting to know you Bailey4! I am anxiously awaiting for the mail to arrive Monday, I know the goodies inside will be right up my alley!

I am so glad everyone likes the goodies. I figured Teddy's shirt would be too big, I am glad the "girls" outfits fit I was a little worried because my chihuahua is a mix and wears small. i loved the smell of those candles too! the boxes were what i wanted to find to buy but could not find what i wanted., I think hooks will fit in the longer box. My grand daughter picked out the bucket of buttons for you!

my package arrived from Jessicali! I love the bag beautiful! THe yarn is all types i have never used one is 100% wool which i can use for either helmet liners for deployed troops or hats for homeless veterans. The striped is wool/soy it feels lovely i think hats for homeless vets. the cotton is going to make new dishcloths. I should not lose anymore needles thanks to the tin magnetic box but just in case there are two more. and the red beads are a color i am almost out of for my bead embroidery!

Monday I received an awesome package from Bailey4! She went over the top spoiling me with lots of goodies! I was quick to send her a message but am just now able to have time to show them off. So sorry for the delay Bailey4! (Been one of 'those' weeks around here!) 

 

I couldn't squeeze it all into one pic ;) 

DSCN4122.JPG

Pic #1: 

4 Holiday themed PINK piggies! How adorable are those?! Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas piggies. I :heart pigs! The Easter piggy even has a little Easter basket with eggs in it! CUTE!

3 different shaped containers, which is like she read my mind because I have been running out of places to put things.

Peppermint tea, one of my absolute favorite tea flavors. 

A black/pink/white cloth ~ she said for dishes but there's no way I would use it for that! Instead, it's going to be one my face cloths :) 

A box of hot cocoa mix for the kiddos

~There was also a box of Skittles inside one of the containers, but they didn't last long enough to make it into the pic ;) 

DSCN4123.JPG

Pic #2:

2 skeins of neon hot pink yarn

2 skeins of neon fuchsia yarn

2 skeins of gray yarn

All my favorite brand & perfect for some projects I have in mind soon!

Pic # 3:

Crocheted Pokemon character amis for my boys! They were so thrilled when they got home from school and saw those. They're new friends have a home on their beds. Unfortunately my stepson won't get to see his until Easter weekend, but I know he will love it!

Leather cord for my jewelry making! Several different colors. I have been making leather bracelets a lot lately and was beginning to run out of cord! Again, mind reader I am telling ya!

Stamp pendant blanks, also for jewelry

Crimp covers

 

Bailey4 it has been such a pleasure to be paired up with you for this swap! You made so many wonderful goodies and it warms my heart that it was on my account! Thank you for being such a great partner! Thank you for everything!

I am posting a picture of my beautiful package from Jan.  First I would like to thank you very much for becoming my new friend and getting to know you.  The package you sent to me was great.  Jan made three scarves and I love the colors and they will be worn to work.  The shawl and flower pin you made.  I have a wedding in May so I will make sure that is part of the outfit I wear.  The yarn is all of my favorite colors of green and I will make sure I make something for myself.  The dress set with the hat is on the refrigerator already.  The green bottle with the lights on will be going in my bedroom as d├ęcor.  I already helped myself to the treats of candy and I will be taking the altoids to work.  The soap smells so nice.  Everything you sent was in my favorite color and I do appreciate the time you put into creating it just for me.

I have received my package from Kathy McGuire, my swap partner and new fb friend. My favorite color is blue, which is also one of the colors of the Dallas Cowboys, a team I'm always rooting for though they seldom win lately. Now, thanks to Kathy, I have a fabulous lapghan in Cowboy colors. I love it! Kathy also sent me 5 skeins of Deborah Norville sock yarn in a variegated blue and I already have a shawl planned for it. I found a blue floral Vera Bradley water bottle to take along when I'm riding my bike and a garden flag for my flower bed. She sent me my first clover hook along with some of my favorite tea and some yummy candies. Thank you, Kathy, for being such a wonderful swap partner!
