Sunshine swap.

Hooray! My swap partner received her package. Now I can share the contents with you.

Let's take a closer look, shall we? We'll start with the container.

The flowers are wool felt. Each of the flowers and leaves have bead work on them in different designs.

The contents of the yellow and orange box! A product of the continuation of my ring basket obsession!

Some fun yellow and orange note cards. I've never made cards before, so this was a fun project. My mom helped me out with ideas and showed me what to do.

A pretty little china plate with yellow and orange in it. Also some yummy cookies.

A recipe for Summer Berry Pie and a fork with an "L" engraved on it. My swap partner's name is Linda. I curled up the prongs to make a recipe card or photo holder.

And a nice orange notebook from Target. The flowers have a little bit of sparkle. As far as I'm concerned, everyone needs some sparkle!

And at the bottom of her box I included a cottage decorating magazine as a little extra.

Participating in this swap was loads of fun and I'm looking forward to receiving my package!

Beautiful things! Your swap partner is so lucky!

The plate you found reminds me of the saucer I found for my partner!

And I included some orange flavored cookies with my swap stuff, too.

I love the recipe card holder - who wouldn't love to have one of those, esp. with their own initial on it!

And the ring basket.... she's going to love it!

Thank you, thank you, Christina. Your the best. All my gifts are so special. I can see that you put much thought and work into this swap. I could not have gotten a better partner. Can't wait for you to get your things from me.

*sigh* I would love to have been your swap partner! Most of the time I end up feeling like I put a ton of work into my packages (just like I see you do) but hardly receive the like back. :/
