Youpi! Gloria has received her package which means we can all talk openly about our boxes. It's like Christmas all over again. :-D
Here is what's hiding underneath all that tissue paper... (please excuse all of the Legos, etc. The house is just a very large toy chest for Missy) I could smell something fragrant coming from box. Hmm... what could it be?
Let's take a close-up tour...
Everything was wrapped up so nicely, I really had to work up to opening them. I eventually did, so here's an even closer look ... :-)
Tape measure from Cate.
Remember when I mentioned a scent wafting out from the box? The verdant sachet is the culprit. Mmmm, smells wonderful. It's lavender from Marta's own garden! And there's a soft wash cloth too!
This snowman is from Bets. This made me smile and laugh. I hope she shares how she made this.
This photo is from Bri.
Pins from Kelly.
These three are from Theresa. Notice what that bracelet is made of! Yes, a knitting needle! Color on the 3rd photo is way off, it is a purple color that complements the other one.
Gift tags & shea butter body cream.
Earrings and bracelet from Lisa.
Cup cozies from Gloria.
Thank you for all the wonderful gifts! I know the idea of the swap was to have a lot of little handmade things to be able to use for gifting. Well, I don't know if I can part with any of this stuff. Is it OK to keep them all for myself???
How the swap works: 10 people in a group, each making 10 items. In return, we receive 1 of each item the other people in the group made. This is why we have 10 unique items in our box. I will show you the 10 items I made for this swap next time...
