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!!
