sending the goods....

all the goods arranged together
I'm really excited about how this turned out! almost don't want to let it go....
I wanted to post pictures of the pretty little items I sent for the "All that I love" swap hosted by The "year of color" blog hosted by artsy mama. The swap was pretty liberal in that Kari aka artsy mama, let us work with our swap partner to get to know them and really exchange things that we thought each other would like. My partner, Marlene, exchanged ideas back and forth and we decided we would exchange items based on the idea, Salt Water Taffy. Both Marlene and I live near the shore and both enjoy the color scheme that salt water taffy evokes.

I made an adorable Katie Runnels -inspired wreath, replete with salt water taffy colors, perfect for spring decorating, included a handmade heart ornament that i made from canvas, one of my junk ornaments, and a small box of bits and baubles that she can -hopefully- use in her crafts. I also included some cute vintage inspired valentines and some hot chocolate, until spring breaks up there in the frigid north...
