Look at the great package that I got from Ansley. My note of gratitute and bragging picture are late because I recd her package the day before going out of town for an eight-day business trip (see my blog).

However, my appreciation is on-going! THREE, count 'em, three, cloths; lots of chocolate; hand lotion; a great note card; spa socks; and scented soaps. LOVE it all!

winterwonderland 001Thanks, Susan! I came home yesterday from a rotten day at work to find a lovely card, two lovelier cloths, two delicious cakes of soap, two balls of Sugar 'n Cream (more warshrags!) and a cool set of stamps. I love being spoiled.

I have been spoiled! Look at what my secret pal, Elaine of Kim-Chi Crafts, sent me for the Winter Wonderland Swap:


  • Two exquisitely crocheted items: The lilac one is a trivet/potholder and the white one's a washcloth.
  • A cute card that features a spinning (literally!) sheep on the front and a lovely note inside.
  • Two notebooks from a Korean Stationary store in LA called Morning Glory. If you've ever seen either Korean or Japanese stationary (and not just Hello Kitty) you'll understand how cute and funny they can be. There is also a folder with a blue bear and matching blue bear page markers. Elaine felt it was best that I head back to school with some *serious* supplies!
  • And finally some chamomile tea to calm me down at the end of some of my more hectic days!
  • Thank you, thank you, thank you so much Elaine!
Thanks Lisa, for the package. I got it last week but was out of town and haven't had time to post until now. I also can't find my camera (where did those darn kids put it?!), so I can't post a picture of it. But, Lisa sent me two fun dishclothes, a blue and white ballband, and a bright orange, red, and yellow varigated one, some gum, some yummy smelling body wash, a skein of Peaches N' Cream, and a Dr. Pepper coupon. THanks!

Thank You Toni! I already e-mailed Toni to thank her for my Winter Wonderland Swap package which arrived today, but I wanted to show it off on the blog too. She made me two of the softest washcloths! They are machine knit and made with baby terry, one in a ballband pattern and the other like a baby genius burp cloth. As I told her, they will become face cloths, as they are just too soft for dishcloths! But that was not all. She also sent a ball of white Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn, a magnetic note pad, and some beautiful handmade earrings and stitch holders. Thank you so much Toni.

Thanks Tracey!

I got my pretty package today! This is my first swap so I was quite excited! And impressed!

One super soft, pretty sky-blue and white snowflake illusion dishcloth. (My cat tried to claim it within minutes of me taking it out o.O! We compromised, I got the dishcloth, she got to sleep on my scarf.) A pretty glass mirror ornament, a knit jacket ornament, a skein of purple-tan-gold Berroco Cotton Twist, vellum gift tags, and the cutest little shell star charms.
I'm already thinking the charms could perhaps be used as markers for the Kiri shawl I'm working on. =)

Thank you Pamela! My package arrived the other day & everything is great!!! I especially LOVE the stitch markers!! They are so dang cute!!!

Thank you, Dawn! I was so excited to receive my box yesterday! It's a party in a box :) I received a very cute card (on left), some kitty wrapping paper, a little cotton bag with nativity scene, "catnip bubbles," mandarin tea, fun New Year's beads and tiara, and chocolate espresso beans in a little stocking! Best of all, she sent two great dish/washcloths--one is a cute angel, and THREE balls of SnC yarn in the greatest colors!! Also on top of the angel are some very pretty stitch markers in a red-opalescent color!

Thanks SO MUCH again, Dawn! I love it ALL! The cats loved it all as well and launched an attack shortly after this picture was taken. (I posted the post-attack pics on my blog as well!) deb (aka twominions) >^..^< >^..^<

I got my swap package yesterday from Megan. I had said that I wanted cloths in bright colors to brighten up the dark dreary days of winter. She sent me a package with a sunny beach theme, complete with sea shells. Also there are stich markers, green tea (my favorite), honey sticks, and chocolate.

Thank you Megan!!!!!
