Sneak peaks of swap items

I received my Halloween Apron from Annie. I had entered Booming Apron's "Beat the heat July Halloween Apron Swap." We had to make a Halloween or Fall themed apron and embellish it.

She had it folded so cute and wrapped in seam binding. Her cute card with her info..such a cute softie she had made on the picture, her info is on the back. And the cute card she sent me.

Orange side of apron. I love it!!!

The Halloween side of the apron. It is so cute...My 19 yo old son was so sweet to wear my apron so that I could get some good pictures of it. THANKS ANNIE!!!! I love it.

Here is the card that I sent to Annie.

This is the apron that I made her wrapped up. I can't show to you yet, I haven't heard if she has it yet. She should, but I don't wanna ruin the surprise. =) Also 2 Halloween tags that I made and added to the wrapped gift. I made the crocheted flower that is tied in the center of the package also.

I also made her some potholders. But the same thing, can't show it yet.

Annie, I hope you like your gifts as much as I did mine. I love my apron, can't wait for Halloween to get here so that I can start wearing it. WOO HOO.

I also entered the Cupcake Swap over on Sharon's blog also. I posted awhile back what I received from Heidi over on Foxgloves, Fabrics and Folly!!

I am very pleased with the way her card and envelope turned out. I put one candle on top of the cupcake. And on the inside I wrote (well typed on computer) that the one candle signifies that she was my first swap partner. I cut the die cut with my Cricut added her name and then uses stickles on both her name and the die cut. The paper is from Making Memories, and both are glittery. Some of the wonderful paper that I received from the wonderful Wilna.

Part of Heidi's swap items is wrapped in this box... I hope she likes it. I had a blast putting it together.

Her cupcake pincushion is wrapped in this tissue paper and tulle . First one that I made, but it was fun.Then I made her several cupcake tags. Her favorite colors are blue, white, and brown. So I made some cupcakes in those colors. I also made some with the Halloween theme. Of course I used my lovely Cricut to cut everything out. Such a lovely machine.

As soon as I get confirmation that these ladies have received their goodies, I will show pictures of everything.

Thanks for stopping by,
