We had an uneven number of swappers this time around, and I was excited to partner up with Wendi and Mary Ann in a three way swap! We decided to each send a box to both the others so we would each prepare and receive two boxes!
Wendi and Mary Ann have both been reading my blog for a looooong time and have participated in nearly every swap. I was grateful for the opportunity to show my appreciation for them!
Here is what I sent to Wendi:
An apron (using this pattern), a cleaning rag and spray bottle, sponge, duster, plastic bin, book and hot chocolate.
My theme was trying to make cleaning more fun! Her favorite task is dusting, so I was hoping a fun duster and some pretty cleaning supplies would make it more fun! With a clean schedule she said she'd enjoy reading and having hot chocolate.
Here's what she sent me:
Everything was wrapped very cute - she had it all wrapped in brown paper and twine with cute tags!
An apron - great minds think alike!
Glade candles, a book on 500 uses for baking soda, a microfiber cloth, notepad, magic eraser, and yummy lavender hand soap!
Here is what I sent to Mary Ann:
An apron (same as above), spray bottle and cleaning rag, sponge, a plastic shoebox bin, a small organizer, a piece of fabric and some dishwasher detergent.
She said her least favorite chore was cleaning up the kitchen, I was hoping a cute container of dishwasher detergent would help make it a bit more fun! And, with a clean schedule she mentioned enjoying organizing and sewing.
She sent me:
Clothespins - with family names on them and a great idea of using them as reminders to pray for those special to me! I loved this!
Candle, cute dish towel, plastic bins, gum, lotion and shower gel, scrubby. She had tagged each item with meaningful and appropriate Scriptures.
Framed quote from Elisabeth Elliot,
"I'm mothering young children who some day will fill important and useful spheres in life, and washing clothes is part of my grand task in caring for these souls who shall live forever."Thank you, Mary Ann and Wendi - I enjoyed my boxes and appreciate your sweet thoughtfulness and creativity in putting them together! Thank you for your generous encouragement! Hop on over to Carrie's for more swap sharing!
