Swap Package

I love getting mail. I especially love getting mail where there's a package. Or coupons to the Children's Place. So when I checked the mail and there was the key to the large box, I was pretty excited!


This package was from my Favorite Things Swap partner, B Nabors. Due to sickness and general chaos, she got the package out a little late but it was worth the wait!


Oh, where to start! So many lovely possibilities...

Here's a general run down of the contents: a photo organizer (I think she must have seen the pile stashed in my desk), two shopping bags (the little black bag and the big one, which is spread out under everything else), magnets (already holding up the kids' homework), little yellow book and black rice soap (both made by the people from Go Fish, an incredible organization that helps communities build commerce), card-making kit (Martha Stewart! Score!), lotion, and sidewalk chalk (I love turning the neighborhood kids loose on my driveway with this stuff). But perhaps my favorite item is that little frog...B's daughter had tucked it into the package. It makes me smile.

Thank you so much, B! And thanks to Mamarazzi for all the work she puts into organizing these for us.

And look what I am doing next:

Another swap! Already got the gears grinding on what I want to put inside...

I hope you enjoyed it! Stella is really into putting stuff into things, i.e. toys in the trash and especially paper frogs in my swap packages!!! :) Thanks again for being a great swap partner!
