My Addiction, Swaps!!

This is the beautiful magic wand and extra goodies that Gloria
sent to me for Bella Enchanted's Magic Wand Swap.
Here is a sneak peak at what I made for Gloria.
It is going in the mail tomorrow!!!

I'll show the whole thing in a few days after Gloria has received it.
I hope she likes it!! I do!

For the Fairy Tale Swap hosted by Meridian Ariel
my swap partner Jill sent me
things from one of my favorite Fairy Tales,
The Elves and the Shoemaker.
This is a little wooden hand carved boot that Jill picked up.
Isn't it cute!
Jill made this Elf that she named Leon.
She also sent me a Elves and the Shoemaker Little Golden Book
So perfect, I collect Little Golden Books!!
Then Jill added a bunch of other Fairy Tale Books.
Mallory was in heaven.
Jill also gave me the pattern for Leon so I could
make some Elfie friends for him.
Thanks so much Jill! I love everything you sent!

Here's a sneak peak at what is going in the
mail tomorrow for you.

Then for Sarah at Gypsy Mermaids Life my swap partner Kelley,
sent me this wonderful Halloween package.
I got a cute glittery pumpkin with ribbon handles.
It is so cute!!!
Kelley also got some black long formal type gloves and stuffed them and added some ribbon. They will be coming out of something very soon., as soon as I start decorating for Halloween that is! Kelley also fooled the kids with 2 of the cutest faux cupcakes. They were so excited when they saw them and then so dissappointed when they realized they weren't real!
Ha!Ha! Sorry guys!!

Here is a sneak peak at what I am sending to Kelley tomorrow.
I hope she likes my package. I had so much fun making it!! It was something very different for me but so much fun!!!

Then Last, but definitely not Least is my package from Montserrat or Cocoa as many people probably know her. This is for Shawnee's "Where I wish I could have went for my summer vacation" Swap I, of course, picked Kansas. Cocoa made me this beautiful yellow apron with pink roses (my favorite color combo) and I think the blue (for the Kansas skies) just makes the whole apron pop!
Montserrat also sent me a calender to add my own photo's to, a set of Cowboy Notecards that she made, 2 close up photos of Sunflowers that she took and a huge package of Beef Jerky that the kids and Earl snatched right away.
Thank you Montserrat so much for all of the beautiful things you sent me. She also has the notecards and the photos for sale in her Etsy shop if anyone is interested!!!

Hi Sherry
I enjoyed seeing all your wonderful swaps. Leon the elf is adorable. I like how you have gave your partners sneak previews of their packages. What a lovley idea. I think I could get addicted to swaps too. I am busy stitching most evenings at the moment as I am part if the Christmas Stocking Swap.

That gives me an idea, I have a ton of Halloween ribbon leftover from my zombie jar project and paper bag books... I'm going to embellish some Halloween mittens for my daughter! Thanks.

My DIL made this up using the pictures of my 5 oldest boys. So funny!
