Swap Package Received!

February 24, 2007

IMG_2524I am late in posting about my wonderful package received from LeeAnn. There were some many goodies! It was great fun to open. I am actually a little embarrassed because my package lacked the presentation of LeeAnn‘s. I’ve definitely picked up a few tips and hope LeeAnn wasn’t too disappointed.

All my goodies were packaged in the adorable purple dragonfly pouch. There were tons of little pockets filled with different things (stickers, candies, erasers, pencils, sweets, stamps, stickey notes…). I’m pleased with everything! The pencils especially; I love to have cute pencils, especially at work. It makes budgeting a little more interesting.

I definitely enjoyed my first swap! I look forward to doing it again!

I am participating in my first swap and I’m a little nervous. For those who are unfamiliar, Wikipedia defines a swap as “an increasingly popular barter system within online communities, in which participants exchange items of comparable value on a trust basis.”

vdayswap07My goodies were wrapped up and sent out last Tuesday. I hope my swap buddy likes them. It was hard; so much pressure to make the other person happy. But it was fun. A great excuse to go shopping. And I did some destashing.

I anxiously await my package!

About Me

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.

My Etsy Shop

A place for me to sell my handmade goods. My style? It's fun and funky with a hint of romance.
