Inside was a note explaining the loot!
My swap partner, Elizabeth, made a CD of her favorite songs which I think was very thoughtful and personal. Thank you! (Why didn't I think of that?) I love Casting Crowns, Jeremy Camp and Third Day too so it went directly to the car! There was also nail polish in her favorite color red and a handbag caddy which I have always wanted to try but never think to buy for myself. There was travel size lotion which I also always have in my purse. Ooo and a mini camera tripod that I never even knew existed. I can't wait to try it and actually BE IN a photo or two! I am the constant photographer but my family always nags me b/c there are very few pics of me in the boys' scrapbooks so thank you for making that possible! She included kazoos because she loves to be silly and have fun. These were a hit with the boys! Carmex because much like myself she is ADDICTED to lip balm! We BOTH have lip balm everywhere ~ the car, nightstand, our pockets and purses as well as on our desks! I even carry some in my camera bag! ADDICTED I TELL YOU! She also sent her favorite pen and says she is a pen freak and could spend hours in Office Max looking at new pens. This admission was HILARIOUS to me simply because I do the EXACT same thing. My pen stash at home and work boggles my family's mind at times when I arrive with a new one. WOW we are so much alike! Like our lip balm addiction, we both have stashes of sticky notes lying around everywhere so I was more than pleased when she sent me more. I don't know if anything would get done if I did not have sticky notes since my kids' sucked the brains right out of me! She also sent photo easels to display photos anywhere. I can't wait to try these because I am a photo addict and love to display them. The mini notebook she sent to keep track of random thoughts was funny to me too since I meant to send her one but kept forgetting to pick one up. I have three I use constantly ~ home, work and scrapbooking. They are a must in my world! Let me see what else......for a small bag it sure does seem bottomless! Oh some flame less candles and a butterfly print.
WAIT.....I TOTALLY FORGOT MY FAVORITE THING IN THE CRAFT CADDY! It is a mini photo album to carry around. It brought tears to my eyes that she was thoughtful enough to print off random pictures from my blog and put them into the album. THAT WAS SO SWEET ~ THANK YOU ELIZABETH. I LOVE IT!!
I will definitely love this while eating on some bite size Snickers!
Because she loves Ikea and picture frames she sent these frames that are REALLY COOL
This is because she likes to erase and start over plus she puts it in the car to keep her daughter occupied. I cannot believe I never thought of it so this
NOW after ALL the presents were opened the "floating" goodies sank to the bottom. LOTS of bite size Snickers which are favorites for us both! LOTS of gum which she uses to as a lifesaver while she is trying to lose weight!
