I was very thankful to have received several goodies in the mail this week...especially considering the stressful week I have had at work. Trial prep really drains me.
Here is a pic of my Red and Black Swap from swap bot - my partner did a great job in picking out items for me - fabric, notions, bracelets, santa mug, and other assorted little goodies:) The little guy in the middle is a red devil that says "whenever you kiss me my toes curl up" - too cute!

I also did another swap with my atc friend, Jeanie - I sent her one of my Frank atcs and another atc I made and in exchange she sent these too cool atcs. I cannot for the life of me get a good picture of them.

My Swap bot secret sister revealed herself to me - thanks Christine! Here are most of the goodies she sent me in 4 different packages. Everything is perfect! She included some Hello Kitty stamps and stickers for Miss S - don't tell her though as I might keep the stickers for myself:):)

And I saved the best for last - my Handmade Apron Swap parcel arrived from Germany!!! I hosted this swap on Swap bot and we had 9 participants. Dieuwertje put together this wonderful package for me. It was beautifully wrapped. There were lots of oohhs and aahhs as I unwrapped every item. I saved the apron to open last:)

Strawberry milkshake mix, herbal tea, white hot chocolate, wooden spoons, several metal cookie cutters, silicone cupcake liners and a star mold (like for cookies or pancakes), little spice packet and princess stickers for Miss. S. The apron is beautiful! Red gingham with a beautiful rooster inlay. I already have it hanging in my kitchen. I LOVE IT!!!

So thank you to Dieuwertje, Christine, Jeanie, and Sher for making my week so much better:):) OOH I almost forgot - I received my fat quarter swap from Pam and from Jill. Thanks to those beautiful ladies as well:)

I am so jealous of all your mail goodies! What fabulous packages! I especially love the wrapping for your apron swap package. I bet it was hard to tear into that beautiful paper (but worth it from the looks of it). :)
