Next I received my second box from the Itty Bitty Swap. This one is from Pam. Look how beautiful the tin is painted. Oh my gosh, Pam put a lot of work into the container and then all the little treasures are wonderful. My Jace has already emptied the confetti a few times. He is just spreading the love with all those confetti hearts (I'm trying to be positive about the mess)!! Pam sent some fibers too but I've already used some of those before I took the picture. Thank you Pam. I hope you like what I sent to you too! Then I received this uniquely wrapped present from Twyla for the Parasol and Paper Swap. I love the pattern paper used for wrapping, what a great idea!! In the packages were four pieces of beautiful paper, the insides for a brown bag scrapbook, a beautiful pillowcase, a purple parasol and a pansy doily. I LOVE pansies and have the perfect spot for the doily and the pillowcase is gorgeous!! Thanks so much Twyla, I love everything you sent. I hope you will like yours too, it will be in the mail tomorrow! I'm running way behind schedule! Sorry!!!!
Today I received the sweetest gift from Angela as a Thank You gift for hosting The Brown Paper Bag Swap. Angela decorated the bag so nice and then gave me a little pop-up book with cute little poems in it and really pretty pictures. It is so nice to sit and look at. Thanks Angela!!
Thank you to everyone for such wonderful swap goodies!!! I love everything and I do apologize for my stuff being so late!! I have been slightly overwhelmed lately! Thanks for your patience!!
Mallory got hit in the face with a metal baseball bat on Saturday night. She really didn't even cry, except about 2 hours later she started screaming that her ear on the opposite side hurt. She kept crying and crying which isn't like Mallory so I took her to the ER just to be on the safe side. It turns out she had a really bad ear infection and the hit must have knocked it loose or something like that?. I took this picture a couple hours after it happened.
Of course, Sunday was Mallory's Dance Pictures. She looked so beautiful up their with her shiner! That's my Mal!
