Swap Packages.

Hello everyone. I love this time of the year. It is officially fall and I am so happy! I love the cooler weather, I love decorating for fall and I love all of the holidays that come shortly after fall begins. I enjoy the leaves changing colors but this year with our drought I don't think we will have many other colors besides brown but you never know.
I joined Amy from Bumble Bee Lane in her Harvest Gathering swap. I was lucky to get two partners. My first partner was Christina form Pendleton Primitives. I have gotten to know Christina a little and think she is the nicest most creative person who is such a great mother. I was excited to be her swap partner. here is what I received from her. First of all this oh so ready to fly through the sky Halloween witch. I love her shoes!
 As you can see I got a ton more other things. Pumpkins she made with a banner to put around them, a pumpkin magnet pencil holder, a car air freshener with Raggedy Ann on it, a composition book that she decorated, tea lights a plate, a pack of stickers, a bee skemp honey pot, a tin pumpkins sign, a candle and a cure halloween notepad. I also got a mug but it didn't make it on the trip and was broke.
Thank you so much Christina! I love everything and it means so much coming from you!

My second partner was a new friend Shannon from D Family Values. She is a cute young mother with the cutest little boy named Noah. Check out her blog if you haven't yet. Anyway I got spoiled by Shannon too and here is what I got.
First off I got this beautiful fall dish towel that went right on my oven door, I was looking for one so it was perfect.
I also got this darling fall dress that I had to hang up right away too, Shannon if you made these things I am in awe of your talent.
Not done yet, here is the rest of my haul...a candle and candle holder, a pillow and also some fillings that will go around the candle in the candle holder and they smell so good.
Shannon thank you so much! I truly enjoyed being your swap partner. I am now a follower of your blog so I hope to get to know you a lot better.

To everyone else out there, doing swaps is a great way to build up your collection of primitives and also a great way to meet new people. It is just fun so if you are really going to follow through please think about joining a swap.

Have a great week! Be Blessed

Cindi, You are one lucky lady. Love all your swap items. Oh what fun to find a home for all your goodies. I have never participated in a swap, but seeing all your items makes me think really hard about jumping in on one. Thank you for sharing with us and have a great week.

What wonderful Swap goodies you received. You had some very creative ladies as partners. I agree, those swaps are so much fun and I love getting to meet new Blogging friends!

Wow, such goodies! I bet you can't wait to get them all displayed around your home. The first hint of chilliness makes me drag out my fall decorations. Love it.

So sorry that mug broke! Oh and the doll I did not make, it's from Marshall's and I about did a back flip when I saw her....she was perfect for you. Not scary and just the right amount of prim cute. The pumpkins I made along with the little banner for you to hang. The plate I thought would be a nice fall decoration. Anyhow, glad you liked your goodies!
