Shoebox Swap!

Here is what I sent to my swap partner, Kim!

Martha's Favorite Family Dinners DVD, book of inspirational poetry found at a thrift store, snowflake hole punch - for her snowflake themed wedding reception, jar of Chex Mix (wash out an old mayo jar and glue fabric around it - I added a canning jar lid with fun paper over the lid), Sonic gift card for her limemade, dried lavendar, a CD of songs I find refreshing and some notecards ~ a bride-to-be can never have enough can she?!

Here is what she sent me:

Look how cute everything is wrapped!

Italian sodas; yummy lime treats; darling notecards; key lime cookies; lemonade mix; a super-cute mug (can you see that it is footed and is so feminine!?), some tea goodies including tea and mints, clotted cream and lemon curd, and Nutella and some adorable straws she made with little parasols on them! Ok, but my favorite, favorite, favorite thing of all is a new magazine called Homegrown Hospitality! This magazine is just up my alley with tons of do-it-yourself projects! Thank you, Kim - indeed, I feel refreshed!

so cute!! Is the word Refresh you used on your goodies
a stamp, a rub on, or a computer font?
Can't wait to join in the next one :)
