Create a handmade apron package that includes all three elements ... something cupcake-y, something with cherries, and something from (or that looks like it's from) Mary Engelbreit (aka M.E.). See the list on the swap side-bar for "tuck-in" suggestions and include at least three. Items must be new or be in "good as new" condition if they are thrifted or re-gifted. As always, make your package pretty … wrap it in tissue, tie it up with a cute bow, and include a personal little note card please.

My husband isn't home to snap a photo of me in my lovely Polka Dot pretty apron, so I'm snatching Marlene's photo (above) to show you.
Thank you very much Marlene. And thank you Shawnee for hosting!

Many thanks again to Diane! DD absolutely loved her apron. She is modeling the "cooking" side. The reverse, she says is for cleaning. The pockets are large enough for her to store her cleaning tools.
Diane also sent place mats, hot pads and a great collection from Cook's Illustrated. Since it was mother's day, I was allowed to use the special day place mat. The best part is my daughter (all of 11, btw) whipped up a Hot Fudge Cake right out of the cookbook for my mother's day dessert! The only part she needed help with was separating an egg and pulling the cake out of the oven.
So, again, Diane was wonderful and made my mother's day extra special.

Thank you Susan for the wonderful gift. I took a picture of it as soon as I got it on my cutting table, so ignore the mess in the background!! I unfortunately tore through the entire package before taking a picture of the way you had it wrapped so nicely. I guess I was too excited. It was lovely. I really love the cookbook and the husband and I have already selected some meals to try. Vegetarian/Vegan cookbooks are hard to come by and some include horrible recipes. This book has so many great recipes, I will get a ton of use from the apron and the cookbook!!
Thank you for your hard work. I really appreciate it!!

It has the most beautiful color purple sash and it is reversable! THANK YOU JANY!!!! I LOVE IT! I cant wait to make some of the yummy meals in my cook book Oh!!! And!... Jany made me matching dish gloves woooooo hoooooo! The awesomeEST!!!!!!!
Super cute apron...one that I am totally jealous over. DD was over the moon excited, too.
so huge mega huge thank you! it was a much needed happy ending to a very awful week.
My polka dot pretties apron arrived today. Micki made it reversible. I just love aprons that are reversible. Reversible aprons are like a two for one, so what's not to love?!!
She also sent these great goodies. Thank you Micki for your thoughtfulness and the great package! I posted about my new goodies here.
