I am joining the lovely Karen at Some Days are Diamonds for my first ever swap!
We were supposed to keep our partners identity a secret but somehow my partner Cheri and I got things a bit confused! But that was just fine, as I got to know Cheri and that was the best part of the whole swap.
And here is the beautiful box that Cheri made for little ole me!
Cheri's lovely blog is called Cheri's Chatter and you can visit her and also see what I made for her by clicking here.
Anyhoo, I just love the beautiful box that the talented Cheri made for me! She used my favorite color blue and added so many lovelies!
Even the inside is soooo pretty!
And just look at all the pretties that were inside~ An adorable rattle shaped Christmas ornament for baby Addison. Lot's of pretty shells, hair bows, a pretty little doily and a charming little bird house!
And check out the cute little clothespins that Cheri made! Aren't they adorable!
And some labels for scrap-booking and a charming little guardian angel bag they I took to the hospital when Katie went into labor.
Love it all!
Thank-you Cheri and Thank-you Karen for hostessing this fun swap. Now that I've done my first, I won't be as nervous about trying another.
Lately, I have been so very busy with my part- time job and helping my daughter, the new Mom with baby Addison.
I work as a parent educator/outreach worker and I added 3 new families about the same time that Katie had Addison.
So if I haven't visited for awhile please be patient with me. I just need to regroup and get a bit caught up.
Have a great weekend everyone!
I am posting this a bit early because Hubby and I have plans for the weekend. YooHoo!
Welcome to Applestone Cottage. My husband Dan and I bought this cottage in the hills of Western Wisconsin 2 years ago. My husband Dan is a building construction and woodworking teacher at our local high school. He loves to build and I love to decorate on a shoe-string budget. With an empty nest looming, we wanted to take our life in a new direction. We found our little stone cottage on 2 acres surrounded by apple trees. Hence, Applestone Cottage began. Please join us as we turn on little cottage in the country into an inviting little home. Cindy
