Berry Box Exchange

I recently participated in Kathy's (Creative Home Expressions) Berry Box Exchange. My swap partner was Debbie from Moore From the Heart. The rules were simple: take a berry box, decorate it and fill it with some goodies. Here's what Debbie sent me today:
Obviously she knows that I LOVE black and white! The box was tied with checked and polka dotted ribbons with a cute little tag...and inside, following the B&W theme, was an adorable, huge pad of paper and pen (which will be perfect beside my phone because I am always looking for paper to jot down notes, tel#s, etc):
Debbie must also be a rubber stamper because she decorated peppermint patties for me (patti) with cute punched out labels and stamped images - my favorite is the old sewing machine:
And she is also a talented jewelry maker - look at this beautiful beaded bracelet she made:
I want to thank Kathy for this great idea and especially thank Debbie for such thoughtful gifts - this was a fun swap to participate in - especially because I came home from the 1st day of school a bit grumpy today and this surprise brightened my day! Stop by and visit these new blogging friends of mine!!

  3. How perfect then that it arrived for you today, Patti! How great that she picked up on the black and white theme. I love the pad and pen idea; and the Peppermint Patty's, well I wouldn't have had any left to take pictures of. I really like the way she dressed them up. Glad you had a good time! I would definitely host another swap and want to do that cocktail napkin one. Probably the end of October if you are interested.

  4. That is the coolest idea for a party! Very creative of Kathy!! And I'd say your swap partner really knew the way to your heart. An adorable gift--and it sounds like it came at just the right time for you. :)
