Envelope Swap with Cindy

 I recently did a envelope swap hosted by Tam  These are so fun as you get a big padded envelope and fill it with little goodies.You would be surprised what can fit.I was excited to find out Cindy was my partner.I've followed her blog for a while but didn't know her real well so it was wonderful getting to know her better...She sent the sweet bee above it has little legs so it actually stands on it's own..Some handmade pins and a star pinkeep....
 Hand painted vintage rolling pin...
 And my very favorite a special linen Tea Towel with a bee skep stitchery and Bumble Bee Lane.It already found it's home in the kitchen we just spruced up.(pics soon promise) I hung it on the Pie Safe Cupboard door.....(you can click it to get a bigger pic)
 Cindy is such a nice person and I really enjoyed swapping with her.Thank you Tammy for hosting another fun swap and putting me with such a nice partner.Thank you Cindy for the sweet gifts I hope you enjoy yours as well.....I wanted to show you my weekend find as well.Not prim but I was so excited to have found it..
Poochie for girls.This was one of my favorites as a child,so who could resist..smile..I'm not keeping her but it was wonderful just to have the memory..Well it's been a busy week here and looks like I'll be busy the next few days.I need a PJ day badly..smile...Hope you all are having a wonderful week! ~Amy

Great package! I love everything the very talented and generous Cindy sent!! I wonder if she had to use her foot to cram all that great stuff into an envelope!?!?--Jan

Hi Amy,
I'm so glad that you like all the goodies that I made for you. I had fun making them for you. The towel looks great on your Pie Safe Cupboard door.
I kept watching for the mailman today, but my goodies didn't arrive. I'm so excited to get them...hope they come tomorrow.

Hello Amy~
I'm really lovin' your goodies from Cindy! I saw them on her blog earlier when she emailed me to tell me I won her birthday giveaway! EXCITED! and I'm really excited to be swap partner with her too. Thanks for paring us up! I'm working on her goodies, when I'm not side tracked with other priorities of taking care of my MIL, and numerous other tasks. It's all good though, I'll get-r-done and out next week.
Love your little memory pooch too! Take care and if it makes you feel any better, I could use a PJ day as well.
