Easter Tag Swap

Sandy over at 521 Lake Street sponsored an Easter Tag Swap and I entered it. This is the first time I've ever taken part in a swap and I had no idea what to expect or what to do. We were each assigned a swap partner and then the two of us each created a swap gift and sent it off to the other.

I'm afraid that my swap partner got the short end of this! I expected to send (and receive) a little swap goodie bag with a created tag. It was so much fun to come home and find this huge box on the front porch even decorated on the outside! She was so creative -- here's what she sent:A sweet little (turquoise!) cardboard suitcase, decorated outside and in...(Chris explained to me what the Moscone Center sticker meant. Moscone was a long-time mayor of San Fransisco)
...and FULL of wonderful Easter tags -- each one was beautiful!An Easter recipe included
Even the backs of the tags are pretty...A goodie container (decorated, of course) filled with Hersey kisses and 4 sweet little cupcake picks -- aren't they great? Note: some of the kisses are already gone...A 'story book in a box' -- the box was decorated and each card was a part of the story, all linked together by pink ribbonSewing pattern tissue paper flowersFelt Easter eggsThe story cards...Thanks again to my new blog-friend Chris for this wonderful Easter Tag Swap gift!

Happy Easter everyone -- have a blessed holiday with everyone you love!
