Tis better to give than receive…

My swap partner Erika emailed me yesterday to let me know that she had received the package I sent her. I had held off posting about it until now because I didn’t want to ruin the surprise. We were supposed to swap a few of our favorite things like the last swap I did. I didn’t want to repeat myself too much so I tried to switch it up a bit.

This is what I came up with:

Clockwise from left:

  • Porcelain fish soap/sauce dish
  • Tangerine lavender soap from Purple Haze Lavender farm
  • Enlargements of a few of my Holga photos
  • A quilted Korean pencil case
  • A package of cinnamon spice pancake mix (from the local mill that was used in the movie Footloose)
  • A little book of crossword puzzles (I have one myself and really like it; I got it Costco)
  • Two fat quarters of cute fabrics
  • A mix cd I made (with N’s help) of music that hopefully kids and adults can enjoy (Erika has two kids)
  • A few lollipops from See’s Candy.

Well, that’s what I came up with. I’ve really enjoyed participating in these swaps. It was a lot of fun to get to know Erika. Check out her blog. I’ll post the details of the great package she sent me tomorrow.
