Thanks Laura

Hi sorry I’m late. If Laura wouldn’t of sent so much I wouldn’t of had to take so many pictures. Thank you for the wonderful package. :-) I hope she took pictures because mine didn’t turn out so great. I would of taken them outside but didn’t feel like showing off my jammies to the neighbors. My kids are always dressed and ready but me, that is a whole other story. lol So she sent me some great bags in all my favorite colors. I have a great big bag, a clutch, two small zipper purses, a bag with tons of small pockets in it, a knitting book, some circular knitting needles, and some wool ease yarn. Whew that was a mouthful! I think I got it all. More pics on my blog.

I got my package from Lesa!

I got Lesa's swap package! This dragonfly purse is the absolute perfect size and I love the fabric. The handle is really nice, too.
I love the diamond shape on this purse with the glitter accent. I also like how the inside of the handles match the lining.
I love the feel of this jewel-toned clutch. So pretty!
Here's everything together:

You can see that I also got a matching pen and memo pad set. The memo pads are flower shaped and I love the print pattern on them. Also, I got a yummy smelling strawberry candle and a baby blue skein of yarn.
Thanks Lesa for all the stuff! I am so impressed with your sewing ability! I was so excited to read that you were my sender this time around. I've been enjoying your blog for a while and it's fun to not only own something made from you, but to have three purses made especially for me. I feel really lucky to have you as a swap sender!

Thanks Ashley!!!!! I got my Purse Swap....

Okay, I got my swap Tuesday. I'm sure everyone knows how excited you feel when a 'Swap Swap Gals' package comes. Well, I was so excited..... I love everything....

Ashley made me this wonderful purse. See!!!!

It is really nice and very roomy inside. It's even lined and has a zipper.

She also got me a Woman's Day magazine, some fabric and ribbon. Both pink, which she thought my daughter would like. She will indeed because her favorite color is pink. Though as she told me a few weeks ago 'You can't wear pink all the time because it gets boring'!!!

Here are some treasure bags she made for each one of my kids. Each had a special treat inside. Mini M&M's!!!! The pouches are so cute. They are going to love putting little things in them after the candy is gone. They still haven't seen them so I'll update this post later when they do and possibly with a picture of them with it.

Also, thanks for the Twix and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups... No picture because I ate them already! They were right on time because I've been on this candybar fix for a while so this definitely helped!!!!

Well there wont be no secret swap this month we only had 2 people sign up this month Zarah and Aurora.

So if Zarah and Aurora is reading this if you two like to still do this months just respond letting me know them you two can be partner up if you like other words. We will try to do another swap next month.:)


I am a Swap Swap Gal and I received my purse from Caroline!
Its an awesome swap package! Me encanta!!!

She sent me a large fat bottom bag in one of my favorite colors - pink! Its a cool coincidence because my maiden name means "pink" in Spanish! The size rocks because as anyone who's ever seen me carry a purse knows the bigger the better!

She also sent a change purse (Pi keeps eyeing it) and the cutest little bird.
Check out the camoflouge! With pockets! I can't sew a lick, so the pockets really impressed me!

Here's the flower with a brooch in the middle. I love purse bling.

Speaking of purse bling, Caroline also attached a cute heart keychain (Pi is also eyeing that).

Thank you so much Caroline! The package is wonderful!!!

I've already started something with it.

Awesome Purse! Thanks, Katrina

I got my package today! It was so much fun. Katrina made me this awesome purse with a beautiful coffee print. I happen to be wearing brown pants and a white shirt, and it matches my outfit, so I'm really excited to wear it today! I also love the notebook holder, with slots for tons of pens. Thank you, Katrina. What a great first swap.
