Thank You Melonie!

Lovely matching handmade purses for my daughter & I, super soft fluffy bunnies (which I'm sure I'll have pics to add of Amber loving on them later, but she's visiting Grandma & Grandpa right now. :)

The little kid gloves are so cute & they match her Easter dress! :D

I'll add more on my blog soon! :)

Thanks Tina!!

Tina - thank you so much for the Swap Package. I love everything. The chalkboard plate is up on my mantle. I love that I can change out the saying for every season. Also, the egg Easter countdown is awesome. My son has not stopped checking it out. Thank you so much for all of it.

Thank you Lindsey K.!!!

Lindsey, Thank you for such a fun swap! I LOVE the pink glittery egg plate! Unfortunately though, the USPS must not be loving the spring swap! I noticed someone else had something get broken during shipping, and sadly the Easter plate broke during shipping also! :( I'm going to try my best to glue it because it is so cute! I love the flowered apron, which if I'm not mistaken is a dish towel with ribbon sewn on! Such a great idea! I will definitely be trying to make some of these for gifts! I'm not great at sewing, but I think I could maybe handle those! The fabric bunny sewn on the dish towel is adorable! And I love the coasters and candles! My boys were so excited about the eggs! My oldest son loves Spongebob and my 3 year old loves Lightning McQueen, so those were perfect! Thanks again for everything!

Thanks Karen

 I had so much fun creating a package to send off, and had an even greater time opening my package!   
I got a plethora of handmade cards. They are so beautiful. I will definitely be writing some notes on these this weekend.
I got some super cute fabric and ribbon. I'm thinking of making a wallet for myself! Photobucket
I got a neat frame with a cork board surrounding it. I have been needing a place to pin things up for awhile, and this will be great! The flowers are in my favorite colors!
Aren't these mini bird houses adorable! I love the colors, and I love all things mini. Photobucket
  Aren't these letters awesome?! Look how cute the paper is!
You did an excellent job!


Wow !! This butterfly art is so cute -my husband even commented on how cool it was. I think I may find a permanent place for it in my daughters room after spring is over..

....and this wreath.. is it made of paper flowers? That must have taken you forever to put together!! I adore it :)

I am searching for a cute little vase to put the pinwheels in so i can display them. They are too cute... I love them!!
Thanks so much for the candy - my kids loved the eggs and carrots. My husband is OBSESSED with sour patch kids so the jelly beans were taken by him the moment he saw them!!

Thanks SOOOO much for everything!! We love it!!!

Thank You Malinda

We got the package yesterday and opened it right in the driveway. The goody bags that you sent for my little ones did not make it into the picture because they barely made it inside in one piece. I cannot get over how cute the chick is. I love the curly wire on it and the flower. We are planning on making the cute Bunnies next weekend. Thank you for the chocolates...mmm. Everything looks so great with my spring decor. Thank you.

For Lyndsey

I got is in the mail yesterday, just forgot to get a picture posted. Hope you like it.

Sneak Peek for Monica

Hope you like this fabric, this is all the sneak peek you get!  :)  I was trying to find olive green that read "spring" to me.  I think I found the perfect match.  Enjoy!

First Package!

Thanks Lyndsey for the awesome Spring package.  My son was out riding his bike when the mail truck came to deliver it so we opened it up right outside.  He was excited about the bubbles and I know he will love to color with his sister.  I love the tulip and spring sign!  Unfortunately the cute glass platter broke in the mail but it is a great idea and I will try to replicate it.  What a great gift idea too.  Thanks!

Sneak Peek for Megan J.

Some of the things in this picture weren't quite done when I took the pic. I'm trying really hard to get everything done & sent out today. I'm behind on everything in my life right now. My grandpa & step-grandpa both passed away in the last few weeks & while neither was unexpected, all the travel & such threw off my schedule. I should get your package mailed by tomorrow at the latest!

Swapping on Pause... Sorry!

Hi There Swap Sisters!
I am so sorry to do this, but I am pregnant and struggling with morning sickness (all day long!) and am finding the need to minimize my responsibilities. My limited energy needs to first go to my family and there isn't much left after that. I fully plan to restart again when life gets calmer- although it may be a year from now. Until then, keep crafting and feel free to post any fun ideas you may have seasonally.

THANK YOU Christine!!!

This was such a fun package. Thank you for the cookbook of treats, the kisses, the ornament kit, the ornament, the Santa, and the little paint books for my little ones. My favorite was the reindeer. My little girl was also so excited about the reindeer. I love their little noses and their tails and just everything about them. Thank you, I am sure they were a lot of work for you. We love them.
