Crystal's Loot

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!
