I had the pleasure of participating in a Fall Swap sponsored by Amanda at Every Crafty Endeavor. I sent my swap package to Randi at Dukes' and Duchesses. Here is what I sent off to her...
Apple Cider spice mix, pumpkin soap, a loaf pan (which sadly broke in transit) with a recipe for Zucchini Bread, a box of chocolate to share with her family, some fall pencils, clothespins that are decoupaged, a fall dishtowel, oven mitt set and an acorn candy bowl. Not pictured is a burlap tote with a yo-yo magnet/pin.
I attached hand stamped tags to the gifts and tied them with some raffia ribbon.
Like I said, I decoupaged some clothespins and took some Green Craft Magazine advice and used a food box to make a little clothespin holder, I decoupaged that with the pumpkin paper. This was packaged in a clear envelope and tied with raffia ribbon and a tag.
Here is the tote that I picked up in the clearance section at Marshalls. It is a very cool bag with two front pockets.
I attached this yo-yo to the bag with a heavy duty badge magnet. Now Randi can use it on a jacket or another bag if she chooses.

Here is the card I made for her to enclose with the package.
I'm sooo glad that Randi loved her package! I really enjoy doing these swaps and doing something special for my bloggy pals.
Hope you're having a great day! I am off to grocery shop and I am stopping at a resale shop. I haven't been in a resale shop since I moved here...time to go and explore!
