Howdy from McKinney Texas!Now that Crystal has received her package, I can tell you a little more about it.
I did two words because I had more stuff I wanted to send and needed more letters. My two words were SANTA and HOPE. I did alot of green items because that is Crystal's favorite color plus I kinda tend to be green (as in environmentally conscious).
Here's what I sent:
S is for Sprinkles (foil kind)
A is for Apron (made it reversible so she can use year round)
N is for Notecards (green & white polkadot)
T is for the tin full of teas (red raspberry & mint green)
A is for awesome green smelling candle
H is for HUGE clothespin
O is for the o shaped wreath ornament
P is for Personalized Zipper Pouch with name embroidered
E is for envelope assortment 6 of 11 different colors and sizes because she makes cards
Something to read-- Simple Abundance - a Daybook of Comfort & Joy... read a couple pages a day for the next year 2013 and also a book of Green projects to do with kids...
I forgot to take pictures of everything together before I sent it but I do have pictures of the handmade items....
Here is the zipper pouch.
I used green fabric on the outside and Christmas on the inside, hopefully when she looks inside she will remember this Christmas Swap...
Here is the apron, I had never made one before. I made it reversible so she could use it year round. Aprons are hard to photograph when you don't have a model but you get the idea of what it looked like here...
I really enjoyed making and collecting everything. I am so glad Crystal liked it. I look forward to swapping again!
